When it comes to science and the human body I suggest keeping in mind the fact that science is constantly changing and then changing again. We can use science to examine theories and act accordingly and that is actually a responsible way of going about healthcare. But there is a problem with devoting absolute confidence in a paradigm that is constantly changing. What was true last year may not be true next year. Remember when there were 9 planets in our solar system? How many are there now? Did it change or did the way we think about it change? It’s the same thing in healthcare. It all boils down to giving a name to something that we are trying to understand. What is true for one person may not be true for another. As a healthcare provider I look at the challenges faced by an individual and we make decisions together about how we will go about the resolution of the problem. I take science into consideration and then make a decision based on what’s best for the person. Is it outside of science? No, but we must understand that science can’t measure everything yet. Sometimes health is more about a connection with the doctor and patient than a future misconception in the mind of science.
I am curious to know what you think about this subject. Do you depend on science or does science depend on you? As always please feel free to leave a comment on this page because what is really important is what you think, not what anyone tells you to think.
