You have to admit there is a lot a doctor needs to know and most of the time their training doesn’t cover peoples questions. There is still so much to understand about the human body and things that were thought to be figured out correctly are actually found not to be years later. More and more doctors are beginning to question the status quo of medicine and seeking answers in alternative medical practices that their patients are flocking to.
There is a chasm of knowledge that doctors face every day as patients with complex issues, and sometimes not-so-complex issues, show up in a doctor’s office with an illness that defies everything the doctor knows. At this point, the doctor can delve into the abyss of the unknown, ready to discover new frontiers, or punt and tell the patients that it’s all in their head, implying a psychological/emotional imbalance as opposed to a physical one.
Psychological issues can have a big impact on the body’s physiology and function, and the connection is well-studied and researched, but doctors are often too willing to assume that the problem must be “mental” when faced with complex issues that originate in the physical form.
It’s uncomfortable for a doctor to face his professional mortality when all of his training has taught him that he learned all there is to know, but it can be even more devastating for a patient to be told that it’s all in their head when they know that it isn’t. Leaving a doctor’s office with a scarlet “M” for mental written on their charts only adds to the problem.
As more and more people fall outside of the easy diagnostic pictures of the past, doctors must learn to embrace the unknown and find real answers to real problems.
The human body is very complex, and much about it is still unknown. Medical training prepares a doctor to address what is known, which leaves a large group of patients out in the cold. As Frank Lipman found out when he was faced with treating everyday patients, “I was shocked that my training was not very helpful for at least three quarters of them.”
More and more doctors are beginning to question the status quo of medicine and seeking answers in alternative medical practices that their patients are flocking to.
As doctors leave behind the centuries old medical model, they are discovering the answers they were seeking in diet, nutrition, acupuncture, homeopathy, and other holistic modalities.
