What is Therapy
Nothing has been so misunderstood today as the word “Therapy”. It has taken the application of symptom suppressing pain killers as a form of cure. In reality they do nothing more than suppress the symptoms that create deadly chronic and dreaded diseases later on.
With the help of Dr J Tilden's view on therapy, I would like to illustrate what real therapy means. “Therapeutics is that branch of medical science which considers the application of remedies as a means of cure. The drug idea is supposed to relieve and cure.
In the very nature of man, the drug-and-relief idea is bad, but if man is one thing more than anything he is a habit-forming animal and if his habits are bad and work towards his destruction he will accept relief rather than stop his habit which is a natural cure – if to stop a disease producing habit can ever be considered in the sense of a remedy or cure.
Drugs or anything that relieve without removing cause are questionably good and certainly an outrage and a crime, where the remedy blinds the physician as well as the patient to the need of searching for the cause and removing it”.
NO DISEASE CAN BE CURED WITHOUT REMOVING FIRST THE CAUSE.
