Words of Wisdom

January 16, 2012

On why modern medicine, for many conditions and for a lot of people, may just be flawed:

The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” – Thomas Edison, Inventor

Drugs almost never deal with the reasons why these problems exist, while they frequently create new health problems as side effects of their activities”– John R. Lee, M.D.

Ayurveda and the holistic approach to medicine:

A man may esteem himself happy when that which is his food is also his medicine.” – Henry David Thoreau

The first question an Ayurvedic physician asks is not ‘What disease does my patient have?’ but ‘Who is my patient?’ By ‘who,’ the physician does not mean your name, but how you are constituted.” – Deepak Chopra, M.D.

Back to the future: Modern Medicine catches up to a 5000 year old science

Considerable modern research has proven the efficacy of Ayurvedic herbal preparations, and research has now moved to elucidating their mechanisms and sites of action.” – Virender Sodhi, M.D. 

The Value of Natural Herbs grows:

This illustrates the need for modern medicine and science to turn its attention to the plant world once again to find new medicine that might cure cancer, AIDS, diabetes, and many other diseases and conditions.” – Norman R. Farnsworth, Ph.D.

One need only go to the United States Pharmacopoeia to see the central role that plant medicine has played in American medicine.” – Donald Brown, N.D
