Want to chuckle? Here is an entertaining, animated video from www.mercola.com. The title is, The Town of Allopath, a story of deception. It’s a satire on allopathic medicine, and it runs for a little more than 6 minutes.
Allopathic medicine is our conventional system of modern medicine today. It is a system of healthcare professionals (such as medical doctors, nurses, and pharmacists,) who treat diseases and their symptoms by using drugs, radiation, surgery, or other treatments. It also includes dentists who restore the mouth after oral diseases have caused damage. It is a system that works well in the treatment of acute diseases and trauma. However, it may not be the best system to treat chronic disease because the underlying nutritional and cellular causes often are not pursued and repaired.
Sit back; be entertained; and absorb the message. In this satire, members of the town of Allopath pursue solutions for a problem without ever getting to the core of the matter. It not only is humorous; it is brutally honest about the challenge to allopathic medicine today.
Have fun with this. You could plug almost any chronic disease into this scenario.
