Medicine, as currently practiced, is the product of an unholy alliance between big business and government. This doesn’t make all modern medicines bad but it does result in a skewed view of what is best for human health, in my opinion. Treatments that contribute to the profits of big business are widely promoted while those that don’t are often ignored or even vilified.
Many say modern medicine is “scientific” but a deeper look into current medical methods and products reveals that very little of it has proven itself in truly independent double-blind trials. The reality is that many methods and products are used because they suit a certain agenda and world view rather than because they have proven themselves truly effective in a scientific way.
