“It seems to me that Dana wasn't at all mounting an attack on physicians themselves.
He was simply making an analogy to the paradigm that conventional medicine undeniably finds itself in. it speaks more to the option for treatment itself (the weapon) as chosen for an enemy target (the disease)
A medicinal approach that has a biomechanistic scientific basis is historically rooted in man's attempt to control and in many cases dominate nature. The reaction to Rene Decartes work split our egos and minds even further from nature and our bodies.
Of course this has served us well in many cases, but just as the Americans like to blow up Afghan wedding ceremonies in taking aim for the enemy Taliban, it has been very destructive too, even in cases of emergencies. (which homeopathy IS suitable for in many cases) It has also been way too simplistic. What we need is a system of medicine that address the complexity of disease and its intimate interrelationship with us, nature, socioeconomics, politics, and the universe. The perfect system is homeopathy!!”
