    HEART AND MIND: MEDICATION

    As noted earlier, the entire medical profession is obsessed with the idea that diseases are entities Ч things which can exist in their own right, without regard to human bodies and personalities. This leads to the further delusion that diseases can be fought, overcome or destroyed by a variety of techniques. Most favoured among these is medication, which may be considered as having three main branches: 1. POISON THERAPHY (medicines), the most primitive and yet the most persistent, which seeks to counter the effects of one poison with another, or to 'kill' the 'invader' without at the same time too obviously killing the patient. Often, signs of disorder disappear under medication because the body is so weakened by the drugs that it can no longer produce those vital reactions to the original distress known as symptoms. 2. DISEASE THERAPY (vaccines and inoculations) which achieves results similar to the foregoing, by adding diseased matter from animals to the existing disorder and by inducing various complex reactions collectively known as 'protein shock'. 3. GLANDULAR THERAPY (also known as endocrinal or hormonal therapy), the most modern and also most profitable for the drug manufacturers. This produces its spectacular effects by overwhelming the body's critical balances of vital activities by introducing quantities of 'chemical messengers'. These produce all manner of seemingly 'improved' function, by inducing activities which have no relation to the body's vital resources. The intensity of the stimulus is decided by an external agentЧ the judgement of the physician, who at best possesses only fragmentary information about the overall state of the patient's system. (By contrast, the naturally-produced hormones serve to ensure the most effective co-ordination between the body's needs and its vital capacity Ч no matter how far that situation may have been displaced from normal by a combination of internal and external stresses.)
