That was a very cogent post, huaren. Thanks for writing it. It clarified some of my thoughts.
Your are welcome Seneca. The search for effective cure is always ongoing as our toxic food and environment creates new complications. Never heard about peanut allergies when I grew up (although that is not to say it is absent) and now there are all sorts of allergies ( Gluten, weeds, bromide in the skin of the fruits, Chlorides in corn, hormones & anti-biotic in milk and meat) and then there are the GMOs that China rejected a corn shipment from USA.
Canada advocates wellness and prevention physically and mentally . By the way, TCM such as acupuncture, herbal medicine and suction cups are eligible for medical coverage in this medical system. So are chiropractic adjustments, homeotheraphy.
When I walk in to see a physician for maintenance medicine, the dieticians follows through with constant seminar and one on one advisory of portion and balance diets as well as Life style choices. The pharmacists joins the dietician to examine what else I am taking that may be contra-indication. For example, there are medication one takes that is completely rendered useless by grapefruit taken together in the morning.
The mental health professionals also comes in to address issues of andropause or geriatric reproductive health and there are social sessions like volunteering work that keeps the baby boomers mentally happy and balanced.
Since all medical tests and attention are all computerized, our attending physicians have the luxury of history of any patients captured by the system and can easily pass these information (electronically) should any medical emergency happens abroad.
Whatever the malady is, diagnosis is the basic framework to predicate any treatment so laboratory analyses has to be timely and accurate ( blood, urine, stool, sonargram, MRI), then the drugs and pharmacists must do their part to ensure no contra-indications. In any case, prevention is worth more than its salt than cure.
TCM is beginning to be supported by more budgetary provisions so that there are more concomitant services that comes with the cure. With enough qualified TCM health professional its credibility and tested cure may be more understood and acceptable.
Hope all the CD forumites stays healthy and happy.
