Symptoms Are Not Causes: 10 Overlapping Points

1. Medical professionals should be more than auto mechanics fixing or replacing parts.

2. Medical treatments that do not take into consideration the feeling and thinking aspects of people are primitive mechanical-treatments.

3. People are more than machines or robots, and it is past time that Western medicine recognizes and treats the entire patient and not just some collection of symptoms.

4. People will continue to explore spurious medical treatments, fakes, and quacks after finding out that their “doctor” is not aware their patients also feel, think, eat, exercise, have relationships with other people, and make or seek a meaning to life.

5. A focus on medical symptoms as causes is a focus on correlation as if it was causation, and thereby demonstrates a lack of willingness to pursue a comprehensive understanding and treatment of human health and biology.

6. If symptoms are causes, then placebos are cures.

7. Time to develop treatments that include the spiritual (meaning), social, psychological, dietary, exercise, habits or routines, career or work, continuing education, entertainment, physical systems, and any other aspects of the patient’s life that they find significant.

8. Anecdotal evidence and successful cases can be found for almost any cure, diet, or quack remedy. Science requires testing and verification, not publicity.

9. Medicine is more than pill pushing.

10. Working to support the pharmaceutical companies who support the schools of medicine makes financial sense, but does it make moral sense?
