I Had a Dream

I dreamed of a new,  alto­geth­er dif­fer­ent kind of med­ical school.

To train to be a doc­tor in this new school, you began with a total com­mit­ment to learn­ing how to improve your own health.

First year stu­dents stud­ied how to improve their diet and all the health ben­e­fits that could occur.  Of course, at the same time they had to learn the rel­e­vant sci­en­tif­ic sub­jects:  the chem­istry of nutri­tion, diges­tion, absorp­tion, and so on.  The phys­i­ol­o­gy of the stom­ach, intestines, etc.

The sec­ond year they learned to improve their health through exer­cise.  And also stud­ied the anato­my of the skele­ton and mus­cles, how the brain directs move­ment, and how the heart and blood ves­sels respond to exer­cise demands.

Next they worked on med­i­ta­tion and oth­er ways to mod­u­late their men­tal state.  And delved deeply into the func­tion­ing of the brain and ner­vous sys­tem.

You get the idea.

It’s quite dif­fer­ent from the phi­los­o­phy of today’s med­ical schools.

Would you like to be treat­ed by a doc­tor who had attend­ed this new type of med­ical school?
