The Biggest Skeleton in Your Doctor's Closet - Dr Vicki: "What are the consequences of focusing on disease? The focus on disease rather than health is a root cause of the dysfunction of our ailing health care system. It has lead to a culture of fear. We fear our own bodies, believing that that are vulnerable to break down and require the help of medical experts to heal. Evolving medical technology reinforces the notion that you need the help of your doctor to recover from illness. Here are some of the manifestations of concentrating on disease rather than health, and their consequences. Just like gravity draws all objects down hill, so, too, our inability to promote health leads to a downward decline. The words “health care“ imply that your doctor cares for your health. This is just not true. Doctors treat diseases." It's an "illness-care system" which only tries to fix problems ( often very badly) after they arise !
