What's a Diagnosis? - Duke's Materia Tonica

Ask a Doctor for A Disease Diagnosis

Within medical healthcare, a diagnosis is the process of determining the disease causes for treatment and management of any non-functioning structures in the body, such as systems, organs, glands and tissues; or the determination of any state and condition of illness or sickness in the emotions and mind; or a diagnoses is the identification of a type of infection from bacteria or viruses. A diagnosis identifies the causes of disease and is not used to determine the health of the body, emotions, mind, and spirit of a person.

The Science of Diagnosing Disease

Diagnoses apply the theories of pathology using biomedical study and research to examine and determine the causes of disease. Pathology uses other theories of bioscience, biochemistry, and healing types of medicine for the theoretical medical analysis and interpretation of the states and conditions of the body and mind which have disease causes.

Only Doctors Diagnose Diseases

Physician Practice of Diagnosing Disease

A diagnosis is given by a physician who uses symptoms and/or test results for the treatment, prevention, management, and cure of disease through the use of drugs, surgery, and therapy.

Healing is Not Treating Disease

Healing medicine does not diagnose disease. Contrary to allopathic medicine, healing medicine is something anyone is able to learn. Healing examines and identifies the structures and functions of the body, mind and sprit in association with nutrients, medicinal remedies, dietary supplements, and anything shown to have healing properties.
