 Chapter Thirteen - Cranks and Fanatics



Now we come to a very touchy subject. In the field of health care, there
is a very bad tendency to call any form of health care we do not
understand, quackery. Because of licensing laws, most Americans have been
exposed to only one form of medicine. They have been taught that this form
of healing is "scientifically proven" while other forms of healing are
not. There are many orthodox physicians and laymen alike who consider
herbology, naturopathy, homeopathy, acupuncture, massage therapy and other
"alternative" forms of therapy to be quackery. Even nutrition is commonly
considered a "quack" form of therapy as noted by the late Dr. Robert
Mendelsohn, M.D.

If you look at almost any other system of medicine besides the Western,
you'll find a heavy reliance on food. The "food" of Modern Medicine,
however, is the drug. The American doctor, aside from a very fragmentary
and usually incorrect approach to certain "therapeutic diets" completely
disregards nutrition. Those who are concerned with nutrition are labeled
faddists, freaks, extremists, radicals, and quacks...1
