Einstein, a genius scientist of 20th century, and central to new energy physics, stated that 'a problem cannot be solved by same mind set that created it'. Cancer is a case in point. Cancer is a dis-ease that stems partly from products of mechanistic, anthropomorphic and exploitative philosophy at heart of our culture, which we tend to ignore. Its effective treatment demands that we see ourselves in a different light and act accordingly.
Medicine is extremely slow to move from a mechanistic and physical philosophy to a more energetic model, like Gaian paradigm that values all life forms as connected. A philosophy of medicine that is over-reliant on logic and limited mainly to drugs and surgery is fundamental flawed. Acts of logic always rely on analysis, that is breaking down a 'whole' into its constituent parts, and examining each minutely. Reductionist approaches fail to see connectivity and relatedness of all things. As a result this philosophy is offering us 'cures' to cancer that are often as dangerous and destructive as disease itself.
Nobel prize-winner Carlo Rubbia maintains that only a billionth of world is actually made of matter and rest is made of energy. The new sciences are challenging way we perceive world and as a result way we relate to our bodies. Dr. K. Scott-Mumby is author of Virtual Medicine and an allergy specialist in UK writes:
Science is proving that we exist as regulated and informed energy. Disease can now be redefined as a disruption, cessation or distortion in information and energy fields. Its time for medical practitioners to join party.
Classical science has reached end of what it can explain in reductionist terms. Issues such as whether light is a particle or a wave, or whether or not water has a memory (an issue central to 'proof' of homeopathy), are moving modern science to a quantum level that deals with fields of energy. Medical science is still stuck in a very physical universe, where objective is to 'excise lump' almost regardless of where it came from and individual conditions of patient and their experiences.
New sciences such as chaos theories point a way forward into handling complexities of whole systems that work together, in synergy. Unfortunately our medical systems and practises are still too often based on philosophy formulated in medieval times.
Because all interventions in a medical process have to been 'proven' as workable (using scientific double-blind testing methods) before doctors will recognise their validity (if they then do research), medical science mostly marginalises or ignores healing alternatives that can provide only 'anecdotal evidence'. Multiple simultaneous treatments of different types and 'levels' tuned for one patient are un-testable by a reductionist philosophy and therefore ignored by mainstream medicine. In addition to this regulatory pressures force researchers and companies to test their drugs on patients with advanced cancer - when dis-ease is much more difficult to treat and when chances of success are modest - this means that potentially useful treatments are discarded as worthless.
