FINITE BEING IN WHITE COAT (Ancient Healer and Modern Physician): Perpetual Endeavour to Manage Human Infirmities
de Joseph Ashun, MD
The belief that a finite being in white coat ( physician ) is all knowledgeable, can always heal and also save human lives in all serious medical situations is a pathetic fallacy. Healthcare which began in the olden days in good faith is today a big business. Current profit oriented economy has coerced physicians to become,more or less, business men and patients consumers.The enormity of the problems in healthcare nowadays calls for adoption of new approach to medical education and commensurate answers and response; answers and response which take into account the power of our innate healing systems and thereby recognising the body and the soul as inseparable entities.
