I think many who seek out "alternative" medicines do so for these reasons. Simply, many seek to get back to a less invasive, less (potentially) toxic experience free of the side effects like those you mentioned.Wade wrote:The problem with the avoiding paganism reasoning is that modern medicine is much developed and controlled by secular humanists(pagans).
Very interesting perspective, Wade. Something to think about.
One thing is that modern medicine can easily become a god. In fact, it is a god for many. Often you will hear this atheistic society refuting God by saying "look what we can do, we don't need God". It simply strips the experience of medicinal practice of any spiritual connection to our creator and sustainer, that is, God.
Most people in actual practice are all too aware of what they can't do. You will seldom find that level of arrogance in people that actually take care of patients, a few surgeons excepted.
