I agree, but your post is based on the assumption that MD allopathic medicine is the only master medicine in the world, and that is where the huge mistake is. As mentioned before, allopathic medicine only relies on 2 things: Drugs and surgery. Thats it. Nothing more. Why? because that is what they are trained for, that is the purpose of their field. So when you talk about the guy walking in with bad LDL numbers, THAT IS TOO LATE. Basically this field of medicine, Allopathic MD, waits until shit breaks to then patch it which is the wrong approach.
Your car for example. Do you wait until the cylinders are about to burst to then take it to the mechanic and put oil? or rather you prevent any failure by changing oil, filter, checking all fluids and replacing filters? The latter correct? then why the body has to be treated different?
In fact, allopathic medicine is unable to provide preventative care, for the same reason. All they can do is provide early detection. Which again, it means to wait until shit breaks to patch it. Wrong approach.
The fair and proper way to care for health is a holistic way. The only preventative field of medicine is Naturopathic Medicine which is only licensed in some 32 states, courtesy of Pharmaceutical corporations. Of course, because Naturopath cure through nutrient therapy which is what the body is made of, not drugs. And by curing, pharmaceutical corporations lose billions of dollars. Therefore Naturopathic Medicine = Quacks.
If we had a real free medical market FOR THE PEOPLE, and not just strictly for profit, we would have insurance covered access to Traditional Chinese medicine, Acupuncture, Quiropractic Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine, and Allopathic medicine with was created for trauma.
If I break a bone, that is what an MD is for. If I never took care of myself and my apendix is about to burst, that is what an MD is for. If I chop off a finger and need it reattached, that is what an MD is for. That is their field. But if my liver numbers are bad, an MD has ZERO jurisdiction there. Wrong specialist. All that MD can do in that case is "treat" me through drugs and surgery which is ridiculous, when the body has its own mechanism of repair and balance out when the raw materials are provided in the right amounts, for age and weight, and that field is Naturopathic Medicine.
Your argument goes bad from the get go. Most people know that abusing fast food, sugary snacks, smoking, alcohol, etc isn't good for them. A lot of doctors refer their patients for nutritional counseling but most don't care and doctors don't have any control over that. It's not fair to blame a persons lifestyle on their doctor. It's up to the individual to be proactive and seek out healthy options. The ones that don't will pay a price and western medicine will help them as much as possible if they have an event or a disease becomes present. After that, they can seek supplements a better way of living if they choose!
