Q. But why do so many of us believe modern medicine works, if the
industry’s own research shows it does not?
A Short Conversation
A. Good question. It is due to the modern medicine illusion with
which we were raised. Let me explain.
Modern medicine has two components: physical and mental.
Our beliefs and expectations with which we were raised create the
illusion that the external pills and procedures cure us, when in fact it is
compassion from within and from others that makes us whole. As modern
medicines’ toxic chemicals and invasive procedures make us worse, we
incorrectly blame the symptoms, for which we were mistakenly being treated
in the first place.
- The physical component is made up mostly
of external medicines and procedures
recommended by physicians.
- The mental component is called the placebo. Our
research has identified the placebo’s active
ingredient as compassion, which seems to be
limited only by our beliefs and
Q. Does this mean the physical component is
actually worse than it appears because compassion is compensating for it,
and if we changed our beliefs and expectations, compassion would help even
A. Yes, thank you. That completes the modern medicine illusion.
