What Western Medicine is demanding of all involved in healthcare or providing help with health problems is evidence-based medicine.
What I would like Western Medicine to base their healthcare provision on is science-based medicine.
In a three part series we examine how our medical thinking compares to scientific knowledge and scientific facts.
Part I - Testing and Measuring
We examine what testing and measuring really means in scientific terms. This is crucial as the medical profession relies so heavily on these results to make a decision about us being healthy or ill. We come across the value of levels found in blood tests, such as nutrients, vitamins, hormones, sugars, and so on. Here we also learn what the main function of glands is. Besides blood tests, lots of pictures are also being taken to visualise the inside of the body but how do we know exactly what we are looking at? How do we obtain these pictures? How can we frame all this information within the science we already know?
Part II - Origin of Disease
We investigate how disease begins, how it manifests itself in nature. We talk about inflammation and infection, which gives us an insight into where exactly to place germs in the picture of the disease process. How do epidemics occur? What does the science of New Biology teach us in relation to the biological processes of health and disease? In short, how do we become ill?
Part III - Structure of Life
We take on board what science already knows about the structure of life. It is important to know this, as our ideas about diseases have to fit into this framework of general scientific knowledge, which then can be used to organise an effective healthcare system for the individual. Science tells us what goes wrong and where it goes wrong. Once we understand this, we can effectively interact with this process, aiming to get us back to health again.
