I live in a little bubble. My bubble doesn't include calous and perfunctory treatment of people in pain. I had watched conventional doctors and hospitals doing what they do, and decided that the world really needs naturopathic medicine.
Sure, naturopathic medicine still includes some unscientific treatments which I would just as soon shed. That is the bathwater, which we can throw out. We can and will let go of ideas that are proven to be incorrect. We need to be careful not to throw out the baby with the bathwater.
The baby of medicine is the evidence-based treatment of people to help them build strength and vitality. This inner strength, the LIFE that we are all born with, can see us through outrageous challenges. Or we can fritter it away by ignoring and desecrating our own bodies. The doctor as teacher really needs to return.
