’Why has the condition developed?’ by Dr. Patrick Kingsley

An article by the late and very highly regarded Dr. Patrick Kinglsey on why treating a patient with drugs, radiotherapy and surgery misses the real question: 'Why has the condition developed?'
As this is the first of a regular series on natural medicine, I thought it would be sensible to set out my stall, to explain how I think, how I practised medicine and how I explained things to my patients.  It is actually a very simple process, almost too simple to some people, but a way of doing things that needs an explanation.
When I was a medical student, I learned all about anatomy and physiology.  I realised it was important, but really I wanted to get into the wards to start treating sick people.  Surely that was what being a doctor was all about.
When I eventually entered the wards, I was first taught how to make a diagnosis, because that was the most important thing to do.  I was then taught how to treat that diagnosis, either by recommending an appropriate operation or by recommending a pharmaceutical preparation, a drug of some sort.
It occurred to me that surely we should be trying to return people to normal, not remove an offending organ or attempt to drug what was wrong into submission. Surely that was the logical way to go about things I thought at the time, but it was not what I was taught.  It never came into the syllabus at all, and it is still not what medical students are taught today.  
Eventually I set up my own practice, where I could apply what I thought was a sensible way of going about things, although I had prescribed drugs in general practice when they were relevant.  Don’t get me wrong.  There is a lot very good about mainstream medicine, especially in an acute situation.  The emergency systems are brilliant at dealing with someone who has had a heart attack, been in a car crash or suffering from acute appendicitis.  It is the long-term, chronic conditions that I don’t think are dealt with properly.

The reason for my saying that is because no one asks a simple question.  "Why has the condition developed?"  Surely it is important to understand why.  In the emergency situation you know why the person is unwell.  Their appendix had burst. They have had a heart attack.  They have been in a car crash.  That immediately tells the doctor what the cause of the problem is, and he knows how to deal with it.
The cause of cancer?
In the chronic case, no one has the slightest idea what has caused the problem.  If you suffer from cancer and ask your doctor why you have it, he has no idea why at all.  He’s not even interested in why.  His approach is to try to kill the cancer in your body.  But that doesn’t make sense to me.
If you have arthritis, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome or multiple sclerosis, for example, no one is interested in looking for reasons why.  You are merely treated as a case that needs treating with the best drug available, after a drug company has done some studies to show that your condition might respond to their drug.

The trouble is that nearly all drugs are insufficiently targeted.  Yes, they may interrupt a particular chemical pathway in the laboratory, but in the whole person they often have horrible side effects, because they interfere with another pathway that is important to the person and is not involved in the persons condition.

One of the most important effects of drugs that most doctors are not aware of is that they cause nutritional deficiencies.  Perhaps the most well known that is basically ignored by mainstream medicine is the fact that statin dugs, prescribed to lower your cholesterol also lowers your levels of Co-enzyme Q10, which is your hearts most important energy chemical.  In the end you will suffer from heart failure, surely one of the conditions that statins are trying to prevent.  In fact a number of people have already died of heart failure who were on statin drugs.

I recently read an article by a doctor who said that everyone from forty years of age should take a daily dose of a statin and aspirin, despite other studies that say there is more harm caused by aspirin than any possible benefit.  I have already talked about the dangers of statins, which seem to me to be possibly one cause of Alzheimer’s.  If you are into taking medicines, that’s up to you.  I’m not.

I saw a young lady not so long ago with asthma.  Over a period of time we identified that eating corn/maize was one of her triggers.  Avoiding it and one or two others helped her to become asthma-free.  She then had a baby and her asthma started to return.  Going through what she did every day it turned out that she was putting baby powder all over her baby after bathing it.  The powder was made of corn starch.  That’s the sort of medicine I used to practise.

So, in subsequent articles I will open your eyes to what causes your particular problems.  I won’t tell you to have or not to have the treatment your doctor recommends.  That is entirely up to you.  I don’t know you and I am not your doctor.
