Rational approaches to Medical Genres…(Thank you to Michael Crichton)

I am a member of Doctors Without Borders…Medecins Sans Frontiers…Philosophically I have to embrace good medicine from all fields, Allopathic, Homeopathic, Naturopathic, Kampo, Native, & so on…I do not discriminate by genre, but by good or bad…There is good medicine in all cultures & there is bad too…All Alternative medicine is not all good- I mean to say, there are bad doctors in alternative as well…But also to say- a person can be both bad at something & good at something…Depending on the day…There are grey areas…It is hypocritical to use conventional doctors for treatment then advocate avoiding them completely if that was not your own path…Isn’t it? Hindsight may be 20/20, but unless someone has only used Alternative medicine themselves, it is hard to be hardline about advocating only that path to others…What have been the benefits from conventional medicine that you have taken? What are you thankful for from those doctors? I think a rational balanced approach is more sane than a black & white argument…Author Michael Crichton teaches in his books that seeing both sides of an argument helps to further the path of rational decisions…Extremism is a dangerous place to live- especially if it is not true to personal history…Getting sick is not necessarily the fault of the doctors…Blame needs to be readjusted a bit if appropriate…There are choices people made along the way…Long before doctors got involved…Functional medicine looks at cause…If what caused the illness is not the result of Iatrogenic effect then what is? If Iatrogenic effect, then why did you allow it to happen in the first place? Peer pressure? Cultural alienation? Job dissatisfaction? These flaws in familial, societal, & religious groups need to be addressed as well…Doctors are merely members of a microcosm of humans…There are other microcosms that need repair too…If we are to fully understand where blame should lie & where repairs need to begin or restitution need to be gotten from…(dangling participle it is 2:08 am here)…


(Biography chatter:from my Author Central page on Amazon-Grove Health Science is a series of 12 books now!) Hi...I'm Sari Grove...Sari sounds like Mary...Grove is the last name I took from my husband, 'cause it is a really nice name, & he was very very good looking, & I married him, & my maiden name, the name I grew up with, was "Slatt", which could be turned into all sorts of unfortunate words, which is why when I was looking for a mate, I sought someone with a cool last name...(I cannot tell you how many totally worthy men I had to ignore due to their last names being unmelodic or otherwise unsuitable...) Grove Canada is a pen name, mostly because when I needed a web address, I could not get Grove.com or even grove.ca, so I just got GroveCanada, due to a serious lack of imagination in that moment...It stuck, so I still use it...I thought this time, if I used Grove Canada as a pen name, that maybe you might look up my blog online, at GroveCanada.ca, & enjoy the freshness of getting information from the horse's mouth, up to the minute, rather than the instant obsoleteness that a book creates...Like a car depreciates as soon as you buy it-a book is old as soon as it is published...For a Virgo perfectionist, this inability to easily update, with a new chapter, with new research, causes me constant worrisome self-abnegating, consternation... I use those dot dot dot things, the etcetera symbol, at the end of my sentences, as a habit-you will always know it is me writing, you will always pause at the end of a sentence to think for a moment, you will remember that poetry is beautiful, & you will take everything I say with a giant grain of Pink Himalayan salt(since the grammatical error will irk you into that state of skepticism)! Love & Hugs, Sari ps. I became a Christian at the age of 21, which may seem like a non sequitur, & though my faith is decent my works may not really do justice to that title-but I thought I'd mention it, since my first name Sari always seems to force an assumption about my background-and though you would be right to assume that it tends to be a Jewish name, you might not be right in assuming that that is what I am going to sound like when I expound on some of my karmic principles or other ethical compasses I have developed...Not that I have done away with my past, it is just I have iced the cake with the new updated version-so if you wrong me, I may just turn the other cheek(New), instead of doing the eye for an eye thing back at you!(old)...
