Modern medicine can be defined as an effort to reduce the risk of disease through the intervention of medications. Modern medicine has also been affected by changes in society.
It has changed in terms of what it considers to be disease and it has been widely accepted that many diseases have multiple causes that are not necessarily associated with only one problem. In fact, more diseases are showing up that we thought were eliminated a long time ago.
One example is cardiovascular disease. Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. While this is very disturbing, heart disease is not a disease that can be treated solely through the use of modern medicine.
The heart is a muscle and it requires nutrients to keep it running well. It needs oxygen and the right amount of carbohydrates to supply it with energy. Modern medicine cannot make it work better. In fact, modern medicine is actually discouraging people from taking vitamins and other nutritional supplements because they believe it takes the place of exercise.
Technology has improved a great deal in the last 100 years, but modern medicine does not have all the answers. We need to look at the history of medicine and how it developed and try to figure out why some people respond well to certain medicines while others do not. There are two major questions to consider: How does a person react to the treatment and what can cause or predict the response?
The use of chemotherapy, which is a common form of modern medicine for leukemia, is a good example of something that can be detrimental to the body and that is not a cure. It is not a treatment for cancer.
Leukemia is a cancer of the blood. This type of cancer is not curable and chemotherapy is a method of treating it. It works by killing off cells that are causing the cancer. There are many side effects of chemotherapy and it can be risky and sometimes fatal.
Modern medicine will say that chemotherapy can be used to treat different types of cancer. However, the results of a study done at the University of Michigan have shown that chemotherapy does not work for all cancers. In fact, some types of cancer respond very well to chemotherapy.
There are non-cancerous types of cancer that respond very well to chemotherapy. If you take a closer look at the study, the treatments that were administered were what we would consider “systemic” chemotherapy.
The group who conducted the study did not look at the type of cancer being treated but the symptoms of the cancer, the severity of the symptoms and the proper diagnosis. It was then concluded that there was a correlation between the types of cancer and the type of chemotherapy that were used.
It is possible that if the chemotherapy was not what we consider systemic, it would not have worked. There were a number of patients who showed great improvement while undergoing chemotherapy and some had no side effects. There was one case where the patient died and it is possible that the chemotherapy could have worked if it had been given in a more local, localized form.
While it is exciting to hear that the chemotherapy did work, it is not the answer for every case. It is also important to remember that modern medicine has many tools and treatments available to treat cancer.
