Dr. Mom is Back

The medical community has gone full circle - back to the days of "Mother Knows Best". (I know it was "Father Knows Best" but go along with me - it fits into this blog.) Maybe she was smarter and wiser than was thought. You would think with all the medical marvels and technologies our so-called experts could create antibiotics that would ward off infection. For a good part they have failed. Some medical treatment now involves bee stingers and leeches to cure blood ailments, maggots to heal wounds and tiny biting fish to clean humans suffering from psorisis. What next? This is just some of the ole time treatment being in use in moderan society. Who knows what the medical community will take out of "the old vault" to be used in place of antibiotics to which humans have become immune.

If western medicine backs away from prescribing antibiotics for every sneeze and psychotropics for every sign perhaps the body can reclaim its own wisdom.
