The medical establishment is a bit of an addict—one that gets its fix from being the authority on health. So what can happen when neither alternative nor conventional doctors have the answers? Denial. This denial may come in the form of mislabeling a condition instead of saying, ‘I don’t know.’ It may come in the form of prescribing drugs or diets that hinder instead of heal. Or sometimes a physician may express that denial as dismissal—and refer a patient to a psychiatrist to ‘help’ the patient with symptoms the physician insists are psychosomatic.
