In our individual lives, medicine is inseparable from each person, as everyone will experience birth, old age, sickness and death. Especially Western Medicine has made many contributions for human health and also lifted many human ailments and also saved many precious lives. Western Medicine is the most commonly used treatment of human diseases. However it has a bad disadvantage, which is one of the most stupid traits of Western Medicine. That is when the treatment of the disease is found, but the "cause" is not understood. More than 50% of the treatments which are specified in the written medical textbooks and books about Western medicine, do not have the cause found.
For example eczema / Vitiligo / gastritis / CHD / Parkinsons / Psoriasis / rheumatism / leukemia / neurodermatitis / Lupus / hyperplasia / impotence / infertility / frozen / urticaria / hypertension / hyperthyroidism / myasthenia gravis / trigeminal neuralgia / facial paralysis / toothache / hemorrhoids / mouth ulcers / chronic rhinitis / prostatitis, etc.
Of course, in some cases Western Medicine has written about so-called "causes" in their books. However it's just the superficial cause of these diseases. They write about treating the "wound", but they do not understand why the "wound" showed up in the first place. Or they write about the direct cause of what the disease itself has produced, but the deeper reason for the disease, the underlying cause of the disease is still not found. That is no way to "Inquisitor pattern in the end" (Chinese expression about focusing on the deep truths and not just the top of the problem) and therefore it is only used in the treatment of the symptom and not the cause and that's why it is not necessarily a good effect and of course that way it is difficult to completely cure the disease.
Example of asthma according to Western Medicine: the explanation of asthma is a hypersensitivity disease. Atopic individuals exposed to allergens induce mast cell, basophil degranulation, so that the release of prostaglandins, leukotrienes and ammonium groups as well as other active medium, causing bronchial spasm and pulmonary ventilatory defect.
Example of diabetes according to Western Medicine: the explanation of diabetes is that it is caused by genetic factors, immune dysfunction, microbial infections and it's toxins, free radical toxins, psychological factors and so on in the body, leading to islet dysfunction. Insulin resistance is caused by too much sugar, protein, fat, water and electrolytes, which creates a series of metabolic syndrome. These are clinically the main features of high blood sugar. The cause of the patient's diabetes is considered to be the relative lack or absolute deficiency of insulin.
But what causes the islet dysfunction? Is it because of all of the sugar, fat, protein, genetic factors, etc or is it just one of those? These are the suspects of isles dysfunction but it's unknown which one is the culprit. Insufficient insulin in people with diabetes is fact, but that is the superficial nature of the disease and not the root of it.
Example of leukemia according to Western Medicine: malignant diseases of the hematopoietic system, the patient's blood leukocytes grow unlimited and the cells form a serious imbalance. Western Medicine does not understand why the white blood cells of patients grow unlimited. Why would a serious imbalance in the ratio of cells occur? What factors cause the disease? All of these questions Western Medicine can't explain. Western medicine treatment is often "only know enough, but do not know why", popular Chinese saying. So in the treatment of leukemia they are so sure that it's hematopoietic bone marrow, so they take a new bone marrow and transplant it into the patient or change the treatment to kill the leukemia cells. The result: the root cause is difficult to get rid of and only a small number of patients are cured of the disease and most of the patients did not heal. The patient's money is spent, the time is wasted and the patient still continues to suffer in pain and caused by the disease, and now the patient also added a "radiation "side effects of "chemotherapy " and harm from drugs and extra suffering.
During treatment, there is just a little focus on the actual cause of the disease. For example, how did the disease come to be in the patient? How did it develop? Why am I born with this disease, while others are not? Why is there such a difference between people? And so on. In most cases the doctor would not explain the reason or illness to the patient and to inform how the patient should take care of himself in the future, to avoid the disease coming back and to prevent further illness.
Anyway the human understanding of some diseases is superficial and not comprehensive nor thorough enough. Especially in the treatment of disease, the knowledge of the cause is very lacking. This may have two reasons: First is the current level of development of science and technology. We simply can't find some cause of some diseases. Secondly, people do not understand the importance of finding the cause of the diseases, so they will not pursue the hunt for the causes.
When the "cause" is unknown, the patient becomes the doctor's "mouse".
For a doctor finding the cause should be a priority issue for the treatment of the disease, a key question, and one question that can't be avoided. We that are clinically treated by Western Medicine unfortunately did not understand and couldn't relate to the fact that for the doctors the cause was not the answer to their treatments for of a significant number of diseases, nor could they answer these questions about what caused the disease or simply didn't know the cause of the diseases. The so-called cause, that is, the causes of the disease!
This is the nature of things of things. How can you as a doctor that is treating patients talk about how to cure them, if you are confused by the cause of the disease? What drugs to use? When you don't know the cause of the disease you are treating riddles and rely on gambler's luck, and then nothing happens. Then you try things all over the place and the patient becomes your "mouse". Does the mouse know the price?
Many treatments in Western Medicine are really experiments trying to test the efficacy of various drugs and medicines, using unknowing "mice" to experiment on, so that data and knowledge can be gathered.
I can't make improper comments about this experimental science or not, but I understand: Although mice and human belong to mammals we do not function in the same way. In the traditional Chinese Medicine "Croton" is a laxative against diarrhea. When mice eat it they are unscathed, and even grow strong. "Croton" is also known as the "rat beans", this is the rationale? Swine also belongs to mammals. In Guilin, China we have something called a "Gelsemium Elegans" plant. Farmers feed it to the pigs and that makes pigs fat and strong. However if people eat it by mistake there will be certain death. This only shows that there is much that mankind does not understand, despite human reason and scientific truth.
Some questions may seem simple, but are in fact quite complicated, as our understanding of the human body has merely scratched the surface. Did you know? Almost all people know:
Water is composed of hydrogen and oxygen , that a water molecule consists of two hydrogen atoms plus one oxygen atom, however, see the simple structure of the water, and so far humans have not been able to make water (although hydrogen and oxygen humans easily can make, the two should be combined to make water). Otherwise, humans would not have to worry about contaminated water!
If the patient knows that the doctor doesn't know what the "cause" is but is still getting treatment, doesn't the patient think it's a bit dangerous? A little bit scary? Maybe even a little bit pathetic? But the fact is that when Western Medicine doctors treat patients with treatments for many diseases, this is the very case. Why is the relationship between doctor-patient strained? There are news reports: because of the doctor's actions the patient died. Who is going to investigate it? Shouldn't the doctor put himself in the patient's shoes, for the patient's sake? Show empathy?
We all know: If accidents happen, the police must first find the cause of the traffic accident: was the cause of the accident the condition of the road (including slippery, sharp bends, road potholes), or was the reason for the accident the condition of the vehicle (including steering failure, brake failure, overweight overload, etc.) or was the cause of the accident a human factor (including speeding, fatigue driving, driving without a license, drunken driving, violation of traffic rules, etc.).Just finding the cause of the problem makes it easier to handle, resolving it well. Making penalties for accidents to increase will be a convincing message. It will attract people's attention so that similar accident in the future can gradually be reduced, but also contribute to learning the lessons of the accident. I'm certain that if the traffic police that deals with traffic accidents say that the cause of the accident is unknown, he would be branded as a "fool" by everyone and he will soon surely be fired by the boss like a "fried squid" (Chinese saying).
Another example is a divorce case. The judge must first ask the couple for the reasons to divorce each other. Is the cause physiological or a mental discord or moral reasons like a "third party". Just figuring out the reason, makes the case easier. The reason for divorce is the most important issue for a judge in a divorce processing case.
This goes for sports as well. For example, if a team loses it's important to find the reason why they lost. It's impossible to not know the reason for losing in sports. If you don't know the reasons why you lost you will keep losing once, twice, three times and then it is true that you will find yourself in a losing streak. I think it would have been better for you if you never entered the contest! Since you are not suited for it, shame! You will always be looked down on by people and some will even tell you to "Go to hell!"
This is also true about doing business. Who will let people who don't understand the market or dealing with business' to run a business and operate in unfamiliar circumstances?
It can be said about anything in the world: if you don't know the reason/cause and can't grasp the essence, you can't get things done even though it's possible to make a mess of things. Is this common sense? Or is this the truth?
This should also be true about treatments in medicine. In the course of treatment, we must first understand the disease, the "cause", and secondly decide how to treat it. If the "cause" is unknown you will not have a very good grasp of what kind of method to use or what kind of drugs to treat the diseased patient with. If all I know that the patient is "inflammatory" and I give him anti-inflammatory medicine he will be in pain, because I have disregarded of how he got the inflammation in the first place. This is typical of the "stop- gap" method of treatment in Western medicine, the main one is the diagnosis in the treatment process that is carried out, second is treatment. And Western medicine advocates of "symptomatic treatment." Western medical treatment is in essence, a "bartering " method of treatment. No matter which contradictions that arise for a reason, the disease remains equally true.
In the treatment of the disease, we should try to find ways to discover all risk factors. The "cause" is a primary issue in our treatment. We should explore, examine, research, summarize and improve so that it can help us to find all kinds of ways to deal with and to find an effective way to cure the disease. We need solve the problem from the root of the disease.
