Looking back on my 33 year career in medicine sometimes astounds me. I was so involved, and so committed to the western medical viewpoint for 21 years, practicing exclusively in hospital situations, with the sickest patients under my care. Then in 2001, my world turned upside down. I began to see the serious problems in the western medical paradigm. In fact, the corruption seemed so insurmountable to me, that I quit western medicine.
