In Support Of Modern Medical PeopleIn Support Of Modern Medical People

As anyone who has visited my website can easily see, I am a strong advocate of alternative and non-modern medicine. If one didn't know me, they might even think that I am against modern medicine, hospitals, the American Medical Association (AMA), doctors and even against the often well-meaning organizations with which they are affiliated.

While I feel that many in power of such private and governmental organizations are culpable, discourage and even block patient's wellness and recovery from ill health, I believe that the vast majority of MDs genuinely care for their patients and would do anything within their power (short of being tossed out of their expensive and hard-earned profession) to help us in anyway that they can.

In my experience, I have enjoyed the services of many fine modern medical practioners. Perhaps, because I have Multiple Sclerosis (MS), I have had occasion to visit more doctors than most people. In so doing, I have always been greeted and treated with utmost warmth and sincerity. I normally come away from such encounters with respect for and appreciation of the modern medical practitioner. They are good people.

Others, with a diverse range of medical conditions and disabilities, report pretty much the same concerned treatment in their communications with me.

As for the modern medical staff, assistants, technicians, nurses, receptionists, and support attendants, these are "Great" people! Never have I encountered a rude or insincere paraprofessional. Not even a telephone appointments receptionist. Being a deaf guy, to boot, I feel that is indeed remarkable. These wonderful professionals in their own right would have given me the clothes off their own backs, if it had not been a requirement that I strip or wear a gown. I love them, each and every one.

It is the pharmacological industry that I have issues with, and not the pleasant and victimized people under their power. It is they, the drug house power brokers that do pretty much what I recall a Senator saying of the international bankers and of the Federal Reserve in another time. On the floor of the senate, the senator rose to charge, "In this dark crew of financial scoundrels, are those who would cut a man's throat to get a dollar out of his pocket. There are those who send money into states, to buy votes, and to control legislatures." Does this sound a little like the legal drug lords? It does to me.

Those people involved in the practice of modern medicine have spent long hours in preparation of their own medical practice. Such has been necessary to gain their expertise, skills, and proficiency in administering good patient care. Too late, some even realize that they are powerless to influence the actions of the leaders of their own professions. Yet they have to earn a living too. I feel that they do the best they can under the circumstances.

This does not take away from alternative, complimentary and traditional medical advocates and/or practioners who have chosen the more difficult, yet ultimately more rewarding path to improved patient health. Abused and accused as they are by the purveyors of pharmaceuticals, Naturopaths, Chiropractors, Herbalists, Homeopaths and "alternative" medicinal professionals are often a viable alternative to modern medicine because they can often achieve healing for their patients via natural and herbal methods, rather than by surgical and/or pharmacological means.

These people are purveyors of traditional medicine, their traditions stem back to Plato and Aristotle, as do the traditions of the modern medical professionals, but the modernists have stepped out of their traditional role. Traditionally, medical practitioners were involved with healing the individual.

Today, medical practitioners, despite their well-meaning intentions, are so governed by the drug houses that their traditional methods have been cast aside by the determination of the drug houses to increase their profits at the expense of the sick. The drug houses have even gone to the extent of forcing legislation upon us that says: Only drugs and surgery can cure disease. Sadly, this is what the modern medical practitioner has to live with.

Even so, I publish this brief article in support of the modern medical "People."
