I would have to agree with a lot of your points. Its due to the indoctrination of mainstream thought that paints a picture that is a lie painted as the truth versus a totally different picture. What I am I talking about? The philsophy that the body is weak and that drugs are the cure to mankinds ills versus the "alternative" approach which in sharp contrast is truly the definiotion of modern medicine whos tenets are the body is capable of amazing things provided it has the necessary tools to get the job done (which includes but is not limited to nutrition). Healing is of the mind, body and spirit and true healers acknowledge and embrace this.
