In the previous article “Single Cause to Fire, Disease?”, we discussed modern medical philosopher, John Mackie and Carter advocated new medical theory that there is no single cause (e.g. virus) to disease like cancers, but there must be presence of other necessary conditions. And it is the body internal environment that is crucial.
This new perspective is very much in line with the 3000 years old Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC) teaching, which elaborated more about body internal environment with regards to body organs functionalities 五脏六腑功能。
Why new medical theories, which are logical and make good sense are not accepted by the mainstream?
I think it is due to the following reasons.
- 200 years of Western Medicine development is step by step, bit by bit process, unlike 3000 years ago, YEIC came in a single book with all the holistic theory, which is not changed till today.
In the case of Western Medicine, when there is a new discovery, it may be subjected to much disagreement by other scientists.
Then we can see many ego in conflict, each wants to protect their own turf.
- Medical Institutions already produce a large number of doctors, whose mindsets are already being influenced, e.g. diseases caused by virus.
This becomes their belief system. Just like pre-Galileo’s time, all people believed the world was flat. Sailors dared not sail to the far end of the sea.
These are sincere doctors who want to serve people, not that they are greedy to squeeze patients’ money💰.
- Western drugs e.g. for cancers are supplied by very large pharmaceutical industries, which put in huge investment, and the business stake is big.
These company yearly financial turnover can be larger than GDP of many countries.
Malaysia is lucky that we overthrew previous corrupted government. But there is no single entity that can destroy these pharmaceutical companies, irrespective how much evidence that their drugs 💊 kill patients.
Surely they will not allow new medical theories to destroy their business.
This is the dilemma of Western Medicine and the helplessness of patients.
