Thought 285: Modern Medicine

As I know first hand, mainstream psychiatrists largely ignore the traumatic root (almost) always present behind mental illness and consider only the symptoms of thought and mood disorder (Madness as Coping Mechanism).

Treating symptoms over causes is one of the hall marks of modern medical practice and ideology.

"Let thy medicine be thy food and thy food thy medicine."
