I have several friends who are doctors, and I am certain they truly care about the health and welfare of their patients, but like you say, they have been brainwashed.
My doctor friends all think I'm nuts, but for some reason they are intrigued by me. Sometimes there is an opportunity to open their minds.
For example, I had a cervical polyp that was bleeding every time I had sex. Several years ago, I had it removed, but it came back. Instead of having it removed again, I decided to abstain from sex and shrink it with herbs. It was working, but very slowly. When I started saturating a sponge with Iodine and inserting, the polyp really started getting smaller fast. My gynecologist friend has been witnessing this "miracle of nature".
I wonder if he would get the stink eye from his AMA colleagues if he were to prescribe Iodine for recurring cervical polyps, instead of repeatedly removing them until a hysterectomy is inevitable, or whatever they do. He is intelligent. Maybe a dilemma is brewing.
Inserting a sponge with Iodine on it, is much less stressful than having a polyp removed. As long as I've got access to Iodine, I'm not going back to the doctor for it.
