I was very fortunate when I was younger to have known the first medical director of the Betty Ford Clinic in Palm Springs, California. The tales this doctor would tell of how many "impaired" doctors were working were frightening but also educational. I gained a healthy mistrust of doctors and realized that they are just people too, in many ways even more biased and self-righteous than regular folks but also prone to all of the human weaknesses.
Starting with that information is necessary because we're now seeing how the medical establishment is divided and turning on itself under Covid. Doctors and nurses are being fired for refusing vaccinations and even for spreading "lies" about the current vaccines. As an example, America's Frontline Doctors at https://americasfrontlinedoctors.org/. Or the hospital in New York where they've stopped delivering babies because the staff had quit over the requirement to be vaccinated. Or how about the Mississippi Medical Board's threats to withdraw the medical license of any doctor spreading misinformation about the Covid vaccines?
Who says that one group of doctors is always right and another group of doctors is always wrong? When did "science" become 100% infallible even though there are various interpretations of the data? Heck, there are even different groups of data! We're seeing the prejudice and bias within the medical community at its worst today when they turn on themselves. This looks more like the mafia at work instead of the holier-than-thou medical world where all of the doctors place themselves on pedestals above all the rest of us because they're smarter. We're watching one group of doctors say their pedestals are higher than the other doctors simply because their egos are bigger.
The world of complementary and alternative medicine has dealt with these challenges since the beginning but now the medical mafia is out in the light for the world to see. It's hard to accept the fact that the medical establishment is so prone to egotism and bias but the facts are difficult to ignore when it's one doctor against another doctor.
A friend of mine brought all of this to my attention again when he admitted that his doctor was inept and had been prescribing the wrong drugs in the wrong doses for years for conditions that he didn't have in the first place. My memories of the Betty Ford Clinic doctor came rushing back to me. My friend said he thought he'd chosen his doctor well because he was the medical director of a local hospital but the reality is that this doctor had killed one of his kidneys and severely damaged the other. When he told his other friends using the same doctor they all quit the doctor immediately and just weeks later the doctor "retired", probably in fear of the lawsuits that he was owed. How many other patients had this doctor harmed? No one knows because the one thing the medical community is good at is hiding their own problems.
Remember the old adage: Doctors bury their mistakes.
