Let me qualify.
Doctors merely intervene in patients medical conditions using drugs, surgery, therapies etc. simply to allow the body to heal itself.
Perhaps it's quirk of the English language, but do doctors heal anyone, in your understanding.
My body was going to 'heal itself' to death on at least two occasions. I am very thankful for what doctors have done for my health in both a preventative (e.g. vaccination) and curative (e.g. excising melanoma) capacity.
clearly your body would not rid itself of a melanoma on its own
very rarely does cancer 'just disappear'
Where are you taking this aka? To where god grows back limbs?
Why the suspicion?
I just asked why not?
If you don't know, say so.
How did we get onto missing limbs?
alright - you answer the opposite - if we just left cancer, would the body just heal itself on its own & get rid of the cancer
From what I know, yes, if you changed diet and ate the right foods.
Cancer is a result, not a disease, stop the cause, cure the cancer, unfortunately though I recognise that Doctors are dedicated and caring in the most part, they are also tightly indoctrinated by Big Pharma and it is instant persecution if they challenge Big Pharma's drug cartel by looking at the simple natural alternatives that DO cure cancer.
Just (literally) published a hub on it,not bothered if you read the hub, but watch the video....

My understanding about cancer is that (supposedly) every one of us carry cancer cells in our bodies. These cells can, and do, combine in certain (various) parts of the body, cause out of control growth that takes over that region of the body, etc. This cancer then has to be treated either medically r surgically.
My question is, "why does not the body get rid of these before they get out of control?"
I have read information similar to what aguasilver posted, that it "could" be preventable.
cancer is no more than cell replication out of control - which then ends up causing problems. DNA is easily damaged - by radiation, chemicals etc
This does not answer the question, merely reworded it.
my immune system is faulty - it can't tell the difference between cancer cells and 'healthy' foods (eg bread, milk, fruit)
I understand what you are saying.
There are supplements that (supposedly) boost/rebuild your immune system.
I guess you are right, at least in a sense. I had radical surgery, but my body did the healing afterwards, so I guess that is what you mean.
Doctors have become such pill-pushers that I've lost all faith in the medical field. Ultimately I think they're good for serious injuries if there is no other choice, but for general health, they fail miserably
I totally agree!!! When I took an active roll in my parents health care I was shocked and sickened to find that, out of the multitude of doctors they saw, not one of them knew all the prescriptions they were taking. Each doctor prescribed a lethal combination of pills for my dad to take. I did extensive research on all his medications and found that four drugs he was taking, when combined with certain others, were life threatening!! They are just legal drug pushers who are compensated quite well by big pharma to push their poisons!!
I am also learning a lot about these things.
I have now started to embark on a journey of preventative measures.
I DO NOT want to get sick in these days. Medicine has come a long way, but it has also lost it's way.
I want to be proactive in my own health care, not AFTER I get sick, but BEFORE!
If a doctor sets a broken leg, isn't he helping the person to heal properly, back to original form?
If the leg was left in it's present condition, sure it might heal, but how useful is the leg going to actually be if it isn't put back to original form?
Just a thought.
Thanks for your responses so far.
I see that I was correct.
My OP was not in the least trying to denigrate doctors. Many of us would be dead without them (myself included). But, still, they only intervened, and our bodies did the healing.
It strikes me that it's, in many cases, an oversight to discuss "healing" but not "curing". I'm a big one for having a lot of faith in our body's ability to heal without intervention and/or its ability to heal itself after intervention.
It's often, though, the "intervention" that cures a condition that otherwise would have remained a problem, and maybe even led to death. An example is when doctors "intervene" with heart bypass surgery. The "intervening" they do is actually curing, eliminating a sometimes deadly condition, improving it, and/or making it go completely away so that the person can return to his "pre-condition" state. Whether it's removing the appendix, doing bypass surgery, or prescribing an antibiotic for an infection that otherwise would not "retreat" on its own; I call that "curing". It's one thing to respect and have faith in our own ability to heal (at least a good part of the time), but I think it's equally important not to seem to be trying to diminish the role of doctors.
It's great that we heal on our own so often, and it's great that we heal after that medical intervention (at least a good part of the time). The role of doctors, though, is not an incidental one. They can't always do it, but doctors so often save lives and cure medical conditions when healing isn't about to happen on its own.
Of course, the phrase, "be healed", is one that's usually used when people think some religious person (not a doctor) or else some "witch-doctor" can "heal" them. Most people don't expect their licensed, qualified, physicians to "heal them". Most hope they might "cure" them or "help" them - so that might be real point here (the word "healing" being misused)
I heal myself and haven't seen a doctor in a decade or more!
You are absolutely correct.Doctors always do preventive and protective work for the patients.They try to give patients maximum comfort.So,its for their sake.
I've got a great doctor! He is very old, very wise and always has a good laugh with me about something.
He does not claim much credit for what he knows, as he is smart enough to know he knows nothing. As he has said on a few occasions. The human body and mind are a complex combination, we don't know that much about either of them yet let alone which one is making us sick.
No "miracle" cures for lypo sarcoma.
Surgery or certain death, no refunds, no returns.
I saw a young healthy female die inside 6 weeks from it. I got to see a whole cancer ward.
Stomach cancer is deadly too without surgical intervention as are many other cancers.
you are right,healing process is a function of the body if injured and it depends on the size and severity of injury, self healing may occur in some small injuries while major injuries need doctors to intervene by surgical operations and presceibe pills so as to help the body to complete the healing process.
Doctors are reasons to cure and heal and they are not Gods
I`m sure that is plenty specialists out there who want to help patients and they do it from bottom of their heart instead of offering some drugs, surgery, etc. But, unfortunately this number of true and honest specialists is going down... Why is that?
In my opinion, nowadays we have a run or even a race after money, people forgot about values and unfortunately medicine is just another sort of business.
