I was a victim of Insomnia last night and watched night time TV until not too long ago. In the wee hours of the morning, the cable waves are bombarded with Infomercials, people trying to sell some crap that only white people buy. Anyway, I came across this infomercial with the author of a book entitled “Natural Cures They Don’t Want You To Know About”. What the doctor author, Kevin Trudeau was basically saying is that there are things in nature that can cure every single ailment, from Cancer to Herpes to Diabetes to Depression… you name it, there is supposedly a cure in this book.
It got me to thinking about the sick world in which we live where the Hippocratic Oath is now called the Hypocritic Oath by persons in the medical profession. It may not be so much in Jamaica but certainly in North America where there is a doctor for every single thing, it is very prevalent there. Looking at it, you could say that if we don’t get sick, then doctors will be out of work so they only treat us to the point where we can live without the discomfort of whatever our condition is for a certain period of time, at which point, we will have to pay them another visit. With the cost of health care as expensive as it is, what this might lead to is persons not visiting the doctor as often as they should.
Could it be possible that there is a cure out there for every disease, every condition known to man, that is being held in a maximum security facility in an effort to enhance the riches of the medical profession? I’m sure I’m not the first or last person to think about this.
Personally, I believe that almost every ail we have is caused by the food or combinations we eat along with pollutants in the air. Equally, I am wont to support the Doctor’s theory that for all the ailments he mentioned, there is a natural counter that will cure them.
If there are persons in the medical profession who view the Hippocratic Oath as a hypocricy in the practice of modern medicine, then we are in for many many more years of suffering. I can only hope that there is still a moral conscience in everyone that will force them to act ethically and not just think about the riches to be gained from continuing the suffering of others.
