Because they know nothing about nutrient deficiencies, doctors can’t take care of patients with chronic health problems. These patients end up in a swirl of polypharmacy with increasing side effects that overwhelm doctors’ ability to understand or treat. Decades ago I saw doctors display the same attitude toward the elderly, who were on multiple medications and had a long list of chronic complaints. Currently 70% of the population suffers from at least one chronic complaint.
Doctors have been educated for 6-12 years to diagnose disease and not prevent it, so it’s pretty hard to change that pattern. That’s what we’re up against in the failure of medicine to prevent chronic disease, which is most often related to nutrient deficiencies and yeast overgrowth.
As doctors become disillusioned with medicine; as they fail to take care of their chronically ill patients; as they develop the same diseases as their patients; as drug side effects become more commonplace, they will embrace this new technology so they can keep their distance from patients – and not have to do a physical exam or take a history!No Future for Medicine – Dr. Carolyn Dean MD ND
