Dr. Nancy Malik wrote:Conventional doctors perceive the body as a physical and chemical entity, much like a mechanic would view a machine. Using this “mechanistic” approach, their concern is to examine these structures using a variety of technologies such as X-rays, MRI’s, CT scans, gastroscopes, colonoscopes, biochemical lab tests and the like.


And how is that a bad thing? What is the body, if not a physical and chemical entity? What is disease, if not an alteration of a chemcial or physical process in the body? How does one discover the cause of a disease if not via examination of the body's physical and chemical processes?
