A psychiatrist who believes in returning to fundamentals of self care & traditional forms of healing instead of drugs
I call it a return to fundamental self care. Traditional forms of healing. These are fundamental and should be available to everyone. The problem is the medical establishment. This goes against the grain of what is taught in medical schools and threatens their authority and the income of the drug companies. We have a system that essentially says even in the most basic matters of care, doctors and medicine knows best and that’s simply not true. Western medicine is wonderful. Antibiotics are miracles. But we tend to hope for the same kind of miracles for psychological conditions. The alternative is going back to basics and learning how to take better care of one’s self.
