Do men doctors actually understand patients who are not men?

Could it be men doctors (MDs) don't understand how
conditions of wellness or disease manifest in women
and children at all so they don't bother to interpret
salient data in these patients. Instead, ritual
proceedures make up the main stay of medical
care for women (ceasarian section operations,
masdectomys and hysterectomies) and children
(Thimerisol laden vaccines, ritalin , fluoride, silver
and mercury tooth fillings which expand and contract unlike
the enamel and dentin they fill and silver nitrate inoculations
for the eyeballs of new borns). More please, give me more...kind sir.

You do know medicine actually says all of that. Except the last bit. I don't know what crap you eat but as stated you can eat unhealthy food as long as you eat it in appropriate quantities.

Butter is nice, delicious and good for your health. Not if you eat a stick of it.

And there is no such thing as Goitre Surgery. It's always been "eat some damned salt". Infact goitre is UNHEARD of because we iodised all the salt to ensure people get their iodine.

And we do try and mention that being bald isn't a bad thing. I myself am bald and shave my head rather than take minoxidil or rogaine.

Osteoporosis is prevented by HRT which improves quality of life quantifiably and it uses human hormones to achieve that. It also is fixed by improvements in diet and we do get enough calcium in our western diets to not make it an issue.

Seriously. Doctors do mentione Diets quite often. It's why there is an entire science called Dietary medicine and it's practiced by Dieticians who base diets out of scientific principles.

Allopathy is a name given to real medicine by people trying to shovel in their pseudoscience under the same banner. It's simple. What I practice is medicine, what you practice is herbalism. I too use active ingredients of herbs. You don't think so?

My most powerful medicine is nothing more than One spoon of clean water, one spoon of sugar, one pinch of fortified salt. That's it. This saves millions of lives across the world.

It is the treatment for diarrhoea. That's it. Most of medicine is things like this. We know what works, and we routinely test things that people make claims of. The difference is "we use active ingredients in known quantities" while "naturalists just make you eat the damn original thing".

To Avicenna. o Avicenna. You flatter your profession. No one is conning anyone. Not
everybody needs alopathy's 3 holy waters. Some of us may prefer iodine to
goiter surgery or vitamin c to scurvy or baldness to rogain or less refined sugars
to cholesterol blockers or no antiperspirants to struggling with allergies - or eating yogert to avoid calcium deficiency and drugs to prevent ostioporosis and then my own idea: the less non food crap you absorb the more resources your
body has to process out the crap that does get in to the body.

Yes, I am saying there maybe differences in these two modes of conning patients but the reality is simple. 

If a plant has an effect on human physiology that can be harnessed it is done so in a pure format. Examples are Asprin, Curare, Atropine. You don't crush the juices or force people to chew the bark, you give carefully titrated doses depending on the person's weight.

And Palm/Coconut oil is bad for you because it is filled with saturated fatty acids which form a lot of cholesterol which clogs arteries. Eat some fish... The fish cholesterol actually counteracts that.

To Avicenna:
There are bad fats. When I was on Guam I used to read the obituaries. The Guamanian people fry their traditional diet of meat and vegetables and rice in Palm kernel oil. They have heart attacks and die in their 40's. We were told not to eat a lot of the local food prepared that way because it was bad for our hearts. But, they don't. know how to manage things in the Airforce because they are all Quacks to right?

Be the first on your block to dislike a youtube video about Naturopathy.
Comment by Clarence Dember on August 14, 2011 at 2:46am
And now we get to hear from a Naturopathic doctor about Naturopathy versus homeopathic since I don't know what I'm talking about.
Comment by Avicenna on August 13, 2011 at 9:32pm
Well you are walking proof that one is unfit to make healthcare decisions as one sadly believes in crazy things. 

There are no such thing as the wrong type of fat. Fat is a part of your diet, balance is needed and so on. None of the things you said make any sense. And yes, circumcision is wrong and no circumcision isn't as bad as you make it out to be.

In my view, medical practitioners have to make incompetent chumps out of their victims for this sort of thing to be justified. If I'm just an incompetent chump, who cares what accusitorial tones exit my pie hole?
Comment by Clarence Dember on August 13, 2011 at 5:10pm
Perhaps I was knocked out so that I would have no memory of my
circumcision? I have thought about it and it makes sense from the perspective of
the people doing that sort of thing to babies. But are babies lining up to give
thanks to their attending physicians for the "favor" of circumcision? I think not.
Perhaps an abuse of power has occurred by those who do these sort of things.
In later years as a 7 year old I remember being shocked when a beach house
shower revealed I was anatomically different in my male equipment when
compared with my father.

I am often struck by the refusal of other people to accept any eclecticism of process in others while their own process contains. many examples of eclecticism. I take a multi vitamin multi mineral tablet every day when I can remember to do it. Vitamin water, green tea (black tea makes my finger joints hurt) and menues I can digest are all part of my daily plan. I avoid eating things which a packed with refined carbohydrates or saturated fats. I forgo deep fried foods as they are the wrong type of fat to make cellular membranes from because it will interfere with insulin and therefore blood sugar levels.

Just because someone is not in medical school does not mean they are unfit to Sheppard their own health when it is possible to do so.

Also it is possible that in India Holistic m. is taken to include the broad banner of spiritual healers, astrologers and crystal eaters that have nothing to do with Naturopathy but by the time they have monopolized their place in the media Naturopathy is flat out rejected by medical practitioners and their students as the worst kind of fraud- before it has even been understood. May be this is why I'm catching hell for bringing it up.
