Chapter 11
The Great Misunderstanding

A serious misunderstanding has arisen where health and
medicine are concerned: there is a general belief that, in this
particular field, constant improvements have brought us ever
greater progress and a better state of health. In reality,
however, not only are we not seeing such improvements, but
on the contrary, the appearance of ever new medicines with
their attendant side-effects, is causing increasing damage to
the deeper levels of the human organism.
This misunderstanding has arisen for two main reasons:
1. A certain amount of confusion has arisen concerning

surgery and therapeutics. There is a tendency to com-
bine these two when speaking of medical progress. In
reality what is being referred to is basically the accom-
plishment of modern technology used in surgery.
Surgery has used aspects of high technology originating
from other branches of science to perform truly miracu-
lous acts, and therefore the whole medical world speaks
of 'medical progress', creating a generalisation based on
these quite distinct surgical successes. The greater part of
medicine is however made up of the therapeutics, app-
lied to millions of people on our planet daily, and not
surgery which covers only a few tens of thousands.

2. Doctors have practically never clearly and openly admit-
ted to their patients that their prevalent therapeutics can-
not truly cure not even one chronic degenerative disease
such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus eryth-
ematosus, sarcoidosis, multiple sclerosis, myopathy,
myastheny, epilepsy, bronchial asthma, allergic condit-
ions, heart diseases, mental disorders of various kinds of
severity, AIDS, cancer, etc.

However, the majority of diseases befalling the human race
today are precisely these chronic diseases, and not acute
diseases or surgical cases. For instance, it is a chronically
damaged heart that will need transplantation which has such
a high cost today. If therapeutics were making any progress
we would prevent degeneration and we would not have so
many cases of heart or chronic disease already in young
The problem that we must face is, how is it possible with
appropriate treatment to get to the point where surgery will
no longer be needed to such an extent?
My reasoning is quite simple: if our present system of
therapeutics were truly curative, chronic diseases should
by now have declined or even been wiped out. In reality,
however, not only is this not the case, but what we are seeing
is exactly the opposite, a great explosion of the numbers
suffering with chronic diseases plus the fact that new chronic
degenerative diseases have manifested and joined the ranks
of those already existing - witness the latest - AIDS!
So where is this tangible medical progress? Should we wish
to approach this problem as a whole, we should be obliged
to confess that existing methods of prevailing medical
treatment have sadly failed us.
