Cheating Mother Nature

  • Oct 7, 2011

It seems that family doctors are becoming more like receptionists. You stop by their office, they get some basic information about your symptoms, and then hand you off to a specialist. Depending upon your issue, you may actually see more than one specialist for any given set of problems. While it's comforting to have a "specialist" (read expert) looking out for you, you've got to wonder how all these specialists are going to come up with one all-encompassing plan to cure your ills.

Unfortunately, the reality is that each specialist will look at your symptoms through their own set of rose colored glasses. Thus, each specialist will likely come up with a different plan, one that doesn't necessarily take into account possibilities beyond their own particular speciality. Cheating Mother Nature looks specifically at the nature of chronic pain. The way pain is treated (or managed) depends entirely upon the perception of the doctor. Thus, conditions like Fibromyalgia can be viewed in a variety of different ways.

Still, you've got to wonder if all these tests and specialists are actually helping to find the root cause of the problem. Do all these tests and different viewpoints actually help our family doctor make a diagnosis and come up with an integrated plan? Are we even looking to cure problems anymore or are we just looking to add yet another medication to manage symptoms?
