I went to medical school hoping to get to the root of what makes people sick and to learn how to truly cure. But in medical school, I was discouraged from that goal. I was taught, for instance, that low back pain was a by-product of walking upright, and that our lumbar spines were simply too weak for us to be using them for anything other than crawling around on all fours. I also heard over and over that cancer and other gene-mutation diseases were results of mistakes nature makes in duplicating our cellular DNA. I kept hearing that nature was flawed and human beings were an intelligent but physically weak species. by the time I graduated, I’d been indoctrinated with the idea that disease and sickness are inevitable side effects of living, nothing could prevent them, and technological fixes were our only options.
