Inspired by a blogger reply to “The Doctor is Way Out,” Compliments of Mojammel, for who the journey has just begun:
We need to change our lifestyle for our good health. Thanks!
WARNING: OPINION FOLLOWS AND LIKE I DIDN’T ATTEND 8 YEARS OF MED SCHOOL!
Yes! Lifestyle, lifestyle, lifestyle and maybe only see your doctor every so once in the while!
And if he immediately recommends a medication, well, maybe ask if there is something else you could do instead?
And he’ll probably reply,
Say what! Did you complete 8 years of medical school?
You see, all he may mostly knows from med school is how to treat symptoms with meds, procedures and refer you to another doctor instead!
I feel it’s the whole body and mind you should treat: not just a particular organ you see!
The slogan of the American Medical Association is “First Do No Harm!”
So I did once contact the AMA and said:
Shouldn’t Your Motto be “First Do Some Good?”
Well! You can no longer go to the AMA site and make a comment by email unless you are a doctor, med student or hospital or recently returned from the dead! You need to input your credentials to move ahead!
But you can write them you see!
Maybe it’s because of people making wiseass comments like little old me!
