Distinction of Medicine and Health Fields

doctors

Subject of Medicine is often considered as synonym to that of Health, which is a misconception. What we generally call as Health Practitioners termed Doctors are really Disease Curers and little to do with health of their clients. Their focus remains focused on diseases their clients suffer from and only those suffering from some ailment visit them for consultation or treatment. Converse to this, there is a need of real Health Practitioners for preventing diseases in people to keep them useful to the humanity until their last breathes. A related profession of Nutritionists partially serves this purpose for lack of education in this field.

Main difference between professions of Medicine and Health is that of focus. Medical Practitioners focus on diseases in a body and try to eliminate these to keep the patients alive. Health Practitioners are to focus on healthy functioning of body, mind and brain of people to keep them creative and productive until they are alive.

Current Medical Profession

Medical Practitioners are providing an important service to humanity by eliminating or reducing sufferings of people due to diseases in their bodies. But in this process, they are doing a great disservice of humanity by keeping alive those who are no more creative, productive or useful in any other way to humanity. This has been creating an unbalance in humanity with sick and useless persons becoming burdens on those who are still creative, productive or useful to humanity in any other way. Just adding to number of live persons is no usefulness of a person, who are being kept alive by Medical Practitioners. In my small village of about 500 families, there are two bed-ridden persons with fully damaged brains. They can’t move their organs at own will, and are being fed through tubes connected to their abdomen. Their family members take care of their routine needs all the 24 hours as their duties or burdens. Medical expenditures incurred on their care are also considerable. In the same village, there are another 20 old persons who are no more productive but are alive using medicines.

In the process of curing diseases, Medical Practitioners may damage some normal functions of the body, and this is happening so often in the name of side effects of medicines used for curing diseases. Thus, the profession is working against keeping the humanity healthy and functional. Most of the surgical operations carried out to cure diseases tamper with some functional system.

The result of about 150 years of practice of medicine on humanity has been that human lifespan having potential of being 500 years has been standardised at about 100 years.

Needed Health Profession

As aforesaid, Health Practitioners are to focus on human anatomy and keep it fully functional. For this, no medicine is required but only adjustments in diets of people work well. Problem in development of this profession is that human body functionality, particularly, that of mind and brain, is too complex and has not yet been fully understood. Another important cause for non-development of this field is that the humanity has become too busy in treating diseases, with no time for caring for health.

food

Why present Nutritionists are failing as Health Practitioners is for their considering body organs part-by-part, for fulfilling their individual needs through nutrition. This doesn’t work, because of the body working as a whole with close interrelationships of various organic systems. None of these organic system is independent and can work without support of other organs.

For this consideration of individual body parts, Nutritionists consider food ingredients too individually. Like no organic system in body can function independent of others, no food ingredients or nutritional element of it can work in the body corporate. For example, for deficiency of bones of a person, nutritionists often recommend Calcium supplements, while our present knowledge is that Calcium can’t be assimilated by a body unless it is dissolved in vitamin C. Hence, Calcium must always by served along with vitamin C. As we know more of functioning of human body, we would surely come to know that even Calcium and vitamin C need more accompaniments to serve a human body.

During Vaidic Era of about 2,500 years back, development of Ayurveda on the Indian subcontinent by scholars of Deva race focused on human health. But that precious knowledge has not been recovered from real literature produced by them, hence, whatever is today known in the name of Ayurveda is highly distorted and mostly damaging to human health. The real knowledge and sources thereof have been mixed with faked knowledge advanced by enemies of humanity for their vested interests of establishing their Aristocratic rule over people.

The real literature of Ayurveda is in a language what we call today as Vaidic Sanskrit. This language has no relationship with modern Sanskrit of India. No effort has been made to decode Vaidic Sanskrit and all the current knowledge of Ayurveda is based on translations of Vaidic Sanskrit literature based on modern Sanskrit. This has further distorted the knowledge of Ayurveda.

This author has been trying for the last two decades to decipher Vaidic Sanskrit to get real ayurvedic knowledge from real Vaidic literature. Based on what he has understood the language, he has made a humble beginning of Ayurvedic scripture ‘Bhavaprakash’ authored by Jesus Christ in the name of Ganesha.

Meditation makes You to Age Faster

chanting

There are 19 persons on Vaidic records who lived between 300 to 400 years with good health and happiness. These persons were pioneers of Ayurveda, the health science developed by the Vedic scholars. Its basic tenets are sexually and morally disciplined life, more of fruits and vegetables as food having all the five tastes – sweet, acidic, acrid, alkaline and bitter, ordered with increasing importance, and livelihood based on physical as well as intellectual work. The idea was to keep on upgrading the humanity towards super-humanism where every citizen would have been self-disciplined and self-ruled.

But their proposition was not allowed to work by enemies of humanity who wished people to be sick and dependent, easy to rule over and exploitation. These enemies were aristocrats with common people like animals in their considerations. They devised multiple strategies to demean and dehumanize people, and their most powerful concepts came to be God, religion and spirituality which once triggered keep on strengthening through generations. Idea behind this strategy is not to allow people to have independent thinking and reasoning but to go by what someone else considered superior tells them to do. The process that works behind this dependence is faith, just opposite of reasoning. Social order so established was named Brahmanism wherein a class of people, called Brahmans, is considered superior to other people and as mediators between a phantom of God and the people.

Spirituality and Autosuggestion

All individuals are not the same, there are persons who refuse to believe in what they can’t realize through their own minds. Brahmanic strategy for them is spirituality that work at mind level within the person him/herself. The individual is made to believe that a supernatural power resides within him/herself and it may be activated through deep meditation on the self. The result may never come but the hope must continue until eternity to keep the person keep on moving endlessly in a close cycle of thoughts and realizations through a psychological concept of autosuggestion.

Autosuggestion is mental realization by a person what he/she suggests for him/herself. This works universally in a calm environment with none else to interfere. Spiritual guide drops a suggestion in the mind of the subject, and suggests him /her to suggest that for him/herself and realize what is suggested. The realization is often a light seen by the person through closed eye, or it may be anything like that. This is what is called meditation or ‘Dhyanayoga’ in spiritual world.

There are various ways of meditation but the common feature remains loneliness of the person and discussion on the matter with others is prohibited by the guide. Loneliness of a person by itself generates mental disorder in a person, and when the individual is pushed into loneliness frequently for long durations, his/her mind stops functioning on considering anything else other than what is suggested to him by the guide.

History of Spirituality

Spirituality, called Adhyatma, in eastern world was devised about 2,500 years ago during Vedic Era by enemies of Vedic scholars and works through cutting off the person from his/her social order and environment. To strengthen their idea, they misinterpreted Vedic literature written in Vedic Sanskrit through change of word meanings through modern Sanskrit language. Original Vedic meaning of the word ‘Adhyatma’ is to ‘study a subject by a person by him/herself’ through books and other aids like experimentation. This was misinterpreted to mean ‘study of the self’. Similarly, Vedic meaning of word ‘dhyanayoga’ is combining various food-grains (dhanya). Such changes in words, such as ‘dhanya to ‘dhyana’, in Vedic literature are common for expression of multiple subjects in a text which has been the special feature of Vedic literature. Each textual matter deals with more than one subject.

Vedic scholars had realized this misuse of words by enemies, and provided adequate guidance in their literature about dangers of spiritual practices such as ‘dhyanayoga’. Their latest creations have been ‘Bhavaprakash’ by Muni Agastya and ‘Arthashasstra’ by Vishnugupta Chanakya. ‘Bhavaprakash’ deals with the subjects of Ayurveda and history, while Arthashastra deals with economy and Vedic etymology (science of word meanings). For the multiplicity of the subjects, there are no unique meanings of words in Vedic literature but each word has different meanings at different places depending upon other words in its vicinity.

Bhavaprakash on Meditation

Bhavaprakash prescribes that ‘meditation’ causes faster ageing of the practitioner of loneliness. The practice of meditation slows down biological functioning of body organs. This calming down of the body appears to provide relief to the subject person, while it damaging to life for slowly moving the person towards stillness and death.

Slowdown of biological functioning, such as digestion, keeps the food intake within the body for duration longer than the desired normal period, making it stale on the way with generation of bacteria, germs and worms in the stale food within intestines and rectum of the person. Live organisms so generated are named ‘Riddhi’ and ‘Vriddhi’ which block the food and excreta passage. The first symptom of such a blockage is that the person is required to discharge excreta multiple times during a day each time in small quantity. This creates more staleness in the body leading to many other diseases. The ultimate result observed by Vedic scholars is faster ageing of the person practicing meditation.

Other reason of generation of Riddhi and Vriddhi has been found to be consumption of more food-grains instead of fruits and duly cooked vegetables. With higher consumption of food-grains and spiritual practice of meditation, overall result has been gradual reduction in average lifespan of people from the astonishing 400 years to the present of about 70 years. Modern medical science has improved the average lifespan of people by keeping old and sick persons alive but has not contributed to overall health and well-being of the people.

So before you take up any spiritual practice, think in terms of your health, well-being, productivity and lifespan.
