“一个人找你看病,把所有隐私告诉你,把衣服脱光了让你检查,把所有痛苦告诉你,把生命都交给你,这种人是仅次于神的人,而不是一般人。
因为爱才有了医疗和医院,如果把这个精神泯灭了就不再叫医疗,那叫交易,它不可能有尊严。
当中央电视台在播“冬虫夏草含着吃”“生命一号”等虚假广告的时候,就说明整条河流都已经被污染,没有哪个鱼能摆脱被污染,治理污染的办法就是治理上游。”

Prescribe vegetables, indeed 请开蔬菜处方

Now a days, talking pills seems a thing as natural as having meals for some people. Do they really need that? Probably not. It’s not a doubt that certain drugs save lives. However this is mostly the case for acute diseases, for many chronic ones prescribed medicine is far from curing the disease rather than controlling the reading of some medical indices with side effects of potential damage to one’s liver and kidney. The more effective and safe way might be as simple as eating more vegetables. Well, it is actually not as simple as it sounds to be though. It means in some sense a change of one’s lifestyle. A strong mind is a must, and professional help is often needed to provide safety and effectiveness guidelines on a balanced diet.

BPA: another reason to eat fresh foods

I still remember the fuzz caused by BPA (bisphenol A) a few year ago, when we rushed to change our baby plastic bottles to glass ones. We also keep shopping BPA-free product since then. BPA has been used widely in plastic bottles, the linings of food and beverage cans. Now new study continues to show that BPA can cause heart disease, and even raise blood pressure just within a few hours. And another question is whether BPA-free really means a more safer product. Alternatives for BPA are often chemically similar to BPA, e.g. bisphenol S. Thus similar effect on our body would be a good guess. Therefore, for the sake of our health, especially our kids, choose fresh foods, and glass bottles instead of cans, plastic ones as possible as we can.

Think twice before any surgery on your body

Our body is the single most important wealth everyone owns. Treat it nicely and responsibly. Every single part of our part is there for some reason and benefits ourselves in one way or another. Think twice before removing it by surgery. The most common examples are tonsil and gallbladder, which more and more studies realize their function and contributions to keep a healthy body. Tonsil is the first protection in fighting cold or some respiratory diseases. Without it, the bacteria/viruses/xie qi will go directly to respiratory organs, and often cause more severe symptoms. The gallbladder is even more important to our body. It stores and excretes bile, which helps our body to break down the fat in the food. In acupuncture, gallbladder channel is one of the major 12 channels in our body. Without it, the negative effects are apparent. For example, people who removed it will never be able to enjoy bacon.
