NewThink #1: We Don’t Know the True Cause of Our Ailments
"Here is where NewThink begins. If we understood the true cause of our ailments, this book wouldn’t be necessary. We don’t, however, and, as you will soon see, this is readily acknowledged by the medical profession.
"I have great respect for the members of the medical profession and count many of them as my personal friends. It takes major dedication to endure the process of medical school and internship and even more dedication to serve the complex needs of patients.
"What is the true cause? Doctors and nurses are often frustrated because the true cause for diseases has largely escaped them. Despite the massive amounts of time and money spent on medical research, our dedicated physicians have been largely compelled to manage only the symptoms of our diseases. Cause, for most diseases, remains on their wish lists.
"Looking in the wrong place: This is because medical researchers tend to look for causes in the wrong places. For example, medical research points to the fact that depression seems to be associated with a chemical imbalance in the body. Accordingly, a counter-balancing chemical (drug) is introduced and the patient feels better. However, patients must continue to take the drug or their symptoms reappear.
"Thus, the drug does not cure the problem. Rather, it temporarily masks the symptoms. It follows, then, that a chemical imbalance cannot be the true cause of depression because that imbalance, properly understood, is just another symptom. Ultimately, we need to find what causes the imbalance. Then we will be closer to true cause.
"This same reasoning applies to every disease I can think of. Cancer, for example, is not caused by cells going awry, although that cell behavior often becomes the focus of medical treatment. Our devoted medical professionals can sometimes kill off the offending cells with radiation or chemotherapy and remove tumors through surgery. But, even though these processes may have some degree of success, they do not address what caused the cells to go awry in the first place. Thus, the procedures often fail and, in other cases, the cancer returns after a temporary remission."
