The basis of classical (conventional) medicine
It is based on the cause-and-effect principle, stating that a factor causes the disease, which is in turn experienced as a malfunction of the organs and corresponding systems of the human body. The doctors’ goal is to address the “cause” and to eradicate the symptoms.
Often the underlying causative factor cannot be traced. In that case the prescribed medicine’s role is limited to reducing the symptoms. Many well-known chronic diseases remain a mystery, despite the amazing progress of biochemical research. At least 85% of hypertension cases are idiopathic, that is of unknown cause. Antihypertensive drugs act by dilating the blood vessels, by slightly reducing the force of the heart beat and by increasing the volume of fluids excreted by the kidneys. Those mechanisms of action resemble a ”bio hydraulic” mode. The different prescribed drugs have to be changed often, as the human organism is getting accustomed to them. Therefore, those drugs are far from a permanent cure. They have to be taken continuously, therefore they resemble a management of the disease and not a curative solution.
In addition, conventional drugs have side effects, which often demand the prescription of more drugs. The underlying basic cause of the condition remains unknown. Therefor are those drugs useless or negative as a whole? Of course not. They save lives and reduce the patients suffering, but they do not solve the problem. On the contrary, the problem is usually made more complex and the diseased state is transferred further to more systems of the human body. It is an undisputable fact that in a medical emergency conventional medicine has an immediate positive action and can save a life from imminent danger. In such critical conditions cortisone, antibiotics etc. have an immediate lifesaving action.
In a chronic disease conventional medicine cannot cure, but only manage the situation. The whole underlying way of thinking and acting does not take into consideration that failing to find a solution may not be a matter of prescribing medications incorrectly, but may be a matter of failing to understand the deeper meaning of the following: what is a human being, what are his levels of health, what influences the result of the interaction between his internal state and the external environment. In the end, failing to understand the deeper meaning of a healthy and a diseased state. If we do not change the way we think about a problem, we cannot eradicate it and we will be chasing symptoms without reaching a final solution. In order to find the primal cause of this situation within ourselves, a process of deep introspection is required. This is not an easy process but it is unavoidable, if a final result is to be expected.
The symptom is not the big issue, nor is the disease. The symptom is the manifestation when the deep underlying cause and the human organism’s defense mechanisms are interacting.
It is crucial to comprehend that the human body always speaks the truth, but interpretation of the body by our mind is often deceiving, as it is affected by our emotions.
