Original Internist;Dec2008, Vol. 15 Issue 4, p179
The author comments on the job of alternative care physicians. He describes the job as outselling opponents to those who need alternative health care. He says that the opponents of alternative care, specifically the pharmaceutical industry, have perfected itself to the point there is rarely any conceivable need to stimulate patients' recuperative abilities. He suspects that there are probably more diseases being created for the benefit of those who treat disease than remedies are being created to treat the existing named diseases.
