Allopathic medicine, also known as allopathy, is the government and organizationally regulated and commercially licensed medical healthcare industry of intervening with the causes of diseases and health-related conditions in individual patients.

Allopathy uses drugs, procedures, surgery, counseling, and therapy, including trauma care and mending injured tissues in a clinical setting such as a hospital or clinic with pharmacists, nurses, and doctors.

Medical quackery and quack medicine has a basis in wrong health science, fraudulent medical practice, and is the promotion of false medical treatments and cures for disease and health-related conditions causes for profit.

          Overview

          Medical practice uses pathology to treat, prevent, manage, and cure the causes of diseases and health-related conditions that have been diagnosed, such as non-functioning of the body, any systems, organs, glands, and tissues, as well as any states and health-related conditions of sickness and illness in the emotions and mind.

          Licensed to Practice Allopathic Medicine

          Allopathic medicine uses government and industry approved methods of licensure to practice as a physician or a nurse. Licensing is done by the oversight of each individual state medical board where allopathic medicine may be practiced with such a license.

          Development of Medical Healthcare

          The medical healthcare industry advances in the various fields of pathology by using :

          • Statistical meta-analysis of studies and clinical trials
          • Medical consensus by a panel of experts
          • Evidence-based peer-review

          Allopathy is Different From Other Forms of Medicine

          Allopathy medical healthcare treats, prevents, manages, and cures the causes of disease and is not to be confused with healing, growth, and the development of the body, emotions, mind, and spirit by supporting their health, wellness, and well-being with nutrition, supplementation, and other forms of medicine.

          Pathology

          Pathology is the theoretical science of allopathy for studying, researching, and discovering the causes of diseases. The science of pathology uses biomedical interpretation of the biosciences, biochemistry, and healing medicine to improve understanding of disease, for advancing diagnosis success, and producing more effective treatment protocols.

          Healthcare is an regulatory organization and medical industry marketing term for recognizing the licensed use and practice of allopathic medicine for profit.

          Pathogens

          Microorganisms Cause Infection 

          Pathogens are external agents to our body that bypass or overcome immunity and the immune system, thereby causing an infection; they are viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and helminths (worms).

          up-arrow


          Pathologists

          A pathologist is a person who studies and/or uses pathology science, which is most commonly recognized by the use of conventional medical doctors (MD).

          Practicing Branches of Pathology Science

          A healthcare practitioner is a medical industry marketing term for a pathologist who is licensed to practice allopathy.

          In addition to the conventional medical doctor (MD) there are many alternative branches of pathology that include psychologist (PsyD), osteopathy (DO), naturopathy (ND), homeopathy (DHt) (use medicine to create the same state of suffering in healthy people by using minute doses on suffering people) and other specific versions of Traditional Chinese Medicine such as oriental medicine doctors (OMD) and licensed acupuncturist (LAc).

          Other food-based pathology, which includes dietary therapy and counseling, usually for eating disorders, comes from licenses in being a Registered Dietitian (RD), Certified Nutrition Specialist (CDN), Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS), and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LDN).

          Disease

          Diagnosing Disease 

          Disease is the theoretical pathology name given to the cause(s) concerning non-functionality, degeneration, dying, infertility, or a state of deterioration or stasis within any bodily system, organ, gland, or tissue; or it is the cause(s) of any states and health-related conditions of sickness or illness with the emotions and mind; or it is a sickness or illness caused by an infectious bacteria or virus.

          Health-related Conditions are Diseases

          A health-related condition, sometimes shortened to health condition or instead stated as a health problem or health issue, is medical industry marketing terminology that directly refers to a disease and any of the manifesting symptoms related to the diagnosis by a healthcare practitioner. The context of the marketing material, documentation, and any associated wording is often the only way to identify that 'health condition' and 'health problem' and 'health issue' is actually referring to a disease, so the medical industry marketing, scientific studies, and journalistic reporting with the most clarity will simply directly state disease and possibly say health-related condition, since a condition of health, in and of itself, is not disease.

          Disease and Health are Often Confused

          Many healthcare practitioners, patients, non-patients, and journalists confuse the basic ideas of health and disease, because the medical industry and medical industry regulators use the word health in relation to states and conditions of diseases. But, disease is not to be confused with health, which is the degree of functionality, healing, growth, and development within a system, organ, gland, or tissue of the body; health also includes emotional expression, mental performance, and spiritual cultivation.

          Health Claims for Disease Risk Reduction

          Health claims are regulatory organization and medical industry marketing terms that refer to qualified or approved claims that a food and/or supplement reduces the risk of diseases or health-related conditions. There are two types of health claims:

          An authorized health claim for a food or supplement having a marketing relationship with disease and health-related condition risk reduction is when there is significant scientific agreement in a substance/disease connection, that includes the sole-discretion of review by the FDA, for approval in marketing disease and health-related conditions using food and supplements.

          A qualified health claim for a food or supplement having a marketing relationship with disease and health-related condition risk reduction is when agreement of scientific evidence is insufficient or entirely lacking in the substance/disease connection, thereby requiring private medical consensus or evidence-based review of applicable experts on any science available, that includes the sole-discretion of review by the FDA, for qualification in marketing disease and health-related conditions using food and supplements.

          Medical Professionals Diagnose Diseases

          A disease is determined by a diagnosis process used by medical physician who identifies the symptoms and/or examines test results of a patient. A disease cannot be diagnosed without a known cause.

          A physician requires a diagnosis so that they may use the theories of pathology to begin intervention with disease causes through the treatment, prevention, management, and cure with accepted and approved methods.

          Disease intervention includes prescription drugs for treatment, prevention, management, and cure or surgery to remove tissues, organs, and glands. Drugs substitute the functions of a non-functioning parts of the body.

          Diseases are for Medical Use Only

          Quacks Use Foods, Supplements, and Herbs to Treat Disease 

          Food, nutrition, nutrients, diet, medicinal remedies, and dietary supplements do not benefit non-functioning structures of the body nor do they replace the lack of any structure and using them to treat, manage, prevent, and cure the diagnosed causes of diseases, health-related conditions, and states is known as quackery.

          Diagnosis

          Doctors Diagnose Diseases 
          Study of Diagnosing

          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 health-related state and/or health-related 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 health-related conditions of the body and mind which have disease causes.

          Physician Practice of Diagnosing Disease

          Only Physicians Diagnose Diseases 

          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.

          A symptom is a manifestation of a health-related condition or disease which has been identified by healthcare practitioner to be directly related to a diagnosis and concurrent treatment.

          Mental Health Conditions and Diseases

          Mental health is a medical industry marketing term to recognize a patient's diagnosis of a health-related conditions and disease within the allopathic fields of behavioral pathologies and psychological disorders. Medical industry mental health marketing is oftentimes wrongly confused with supporting and promoting emotional, mental, and spiritual health and healing, such as lifestyles, complete diets, dietary supplementation, developing healthy relationships, and spiritual practice.

          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, emotions, mind, and sprit in association with nutrients, medicinal remedies, dietary supplements, and anything shown to have healing properties.

          Treatment

          Putting Together a Protocol for Treating the Causes of Disease 

          Within medical healthcare, a treatment is an intervention in the causes of disease after diagnosis. A treatment manages sickness and illness related to disease, prevents one from getting a disease, and/or cures the causes of a disease. Treatments include prescribed drugs, devices, counselling, therapy, and surgery.

          Treatments may substitute non-functioning parts of the body and mind with drugs and devices; or intervene in any sick and ill emotional and mental states with drugs, counselling and therapy; or intervene in an infection from bacteria and viruses. 

          Treatments are not to be confused with the consumption of foods, nutrients, medicinal remedies, dietary supplements and healing types of medicine.

          A Disease Diagnosis is Required Before Treatment

          Treatments are given after a disease has been diagnosed by a physician. A physician cannot treat any cause of a state or health-related conditions of the body, emotions, or mind without a disease diagnosis. A person cannot self-diagnose or self-treat the causes of disease.

          Drugs, surgery and therapy may be any of the methods used to treat, manage, prevent, and cure diseases.

          Food, Herbs, and Supplements Do Not Treat Disease

          Beware! Quackery Treatments are Everywhere on the Internet 

          Foods, herbs, nutrients, medicinal remedies, dietary supplements and other healing medicine support, maintain, and promote health and wellness and are unable to treat, manage, prevent, and cure disease causes. Avoid quackery cures in health and wellbeing.

          up-arrow


          Patient

          A patient is a person who has authorized a medical healthcare physician to make an official recorded statement of the condition of their health and advise them medically, which may include a diagnosis of a disease or health-related conditions and any related treatments, including the prescribing of procedures and drugs.

          Only a medical healthcare professional with appropriate credentials can advise a patient under their care in a physician-patient relationship. The physician-patient privilege, in most cases, means that patient can communicate personal and private information related to their medical status, any diseases, and/or health-related conditions with confidentiality.

          Medical Advice is Not the Same a General Health Info

          The medical advice of a medical healthcare professional should not be confused with general information about health and the way the body works, along with any nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle choices.

          Contrarily, someone disseminating general health information should not be confused with a medical healthcare professional and the establishment physician-patient relationship. This is because general health information is not within the scope of allopathic medicine practice.

          up-arrow


          Drug

          Drugs Do Not Heal, They Treat Disease 

          A drug is a non-healing form of toxic medicine used by medical healthcare professionals to intervene in the causes of health-related conditions and diseases, given by diagnosis, for treatment, prevention, management, and cure.

          Drugs are often petroleum based lab-created pharmaceuticals, but some may also be a concentrated pure constituent that is derived from plants and approved for medical use.

          Drugs Work By Intervening With Disease

          Drugs work in a few ways; by chemically acting as substitutes for non-functioning structures in the body's systems, organs, glands, and tissues; by intervening in any states or causes of illness and sickness in the emotions and mind; by fighting infection of bacteria, viruses, and parasites.

          Some drugs may induce pain-relief and promote euphoria, but these are not healing or well-being benefits.

          Drugs Treatments Out-weigh the Toxic Risks

          Drugs are biomedically studied and researched through human clinical trials to be more useful for treating diseases than incurring their associated toxicity, intoxication effects, and harmful side effects.

          Recreational Drug Use is Medical Quackery

          The recreational use of drugs is to willingly seek physical and mental impairment for the wrong view and false feelings of well-being, which is known as quackery.

          Drugs are Not Food

          Drugs Are Not Supplements 

          Drugs are not to be confused with food, nutrients, medicinal herbs, or any other type of dietary supplement. Drugs are substitutes for non-working parts of the body, emotions, and mind and do not work like dietary supplements which add-to working parts of the body, emotions, and mind; therefore, using drugs as nutrients, medicinal herbs, and dietary supplements is known as quackery.

          up-arrow


          Prescription

          A Prescription is Used at a Pharmacy 

          A prescription is an authorization that is prescribed by a healthcare professional for medical drugs, procedures, therapy, and counselling in the prevention, management, treatment, and cure of a disease or health-related conditions that has been diagnosed.

          A prescription for a drug is filled at a pharmacy by a pharmacist. Some medical drugs may be purchased at a pharmacy and/or with a pharmacist over-the-counter (OTC) without a prescription. Discuss any OTC drug use with a pharmacist or qualified healthcare practitioner. 

          Sometimes a quack physician may authorize a wrongful prescription of a drug for the off-label use, and also inappropriately prescribe food and dietary supplements for the treatment of diseases and health-related conditions. Indeed, a quack wrongly prescribes anything for diseases and health-related conditions.

          Self-medication is Slang for Recreational Use of Prescription Drugs 

          Self-medication and self-treatment (aka. treatment with self-care) is colloquial slang used by the medical industry and government agencies for when someone uses prescription drugs recreationally or uses recreational drugs and intoxicants for the wrong view and false feelings of well-being.

          Foods and Dietary Supplements Cannot Be Prescribed

          Food and dietary supplements cannot be prescribed as drugs since food and supplements do not prevent, manage, treat, or cure diseases and health-related conditions; instead food and supplements support, build, and promote health, wellness, and well-being.

          An Adverse Event Requires Medical Intervention

          An adverse event is an undesirable experience that may be associated with hydration or the lack thereof, eating or the lack thereof, taking supplements or the lack thereof, and physical, emotional, and/or mental activity or the lack thereof, and any experiences of medical treatment that causes the person to suffer unnecessarily and require a medical intervention. Drugs do not cause someone to have adverse events, since drugs inherently have the risk of side effects.

          How to Avoid Adverse Events

          In general, to avoid adverse events, one is best staying hydrated, eating at least three complete meals a day, taking the recommended serving of a supplement or a fractional dosage, maintaining physical, emotional, and mental health and well-being, and talking to a healthcare practitioner about any concerns with their health and any prescribed medical treatments and drugs when necessary.

          up-arrow


          Side Effects

          Side Effects are Unintended Effects of Drug Use 

          A side effect is the medical risk of an unwanted consequence and unintended result from taking a toxic medical drug that is a known or unknown reaction of abnormal functioning within the body, emotions, and/or mind which is different than the desired disease or health-related conditions treatment, which altogether may be benign, cause injury, or death.

          If someone is experiencing a life threatening side effect from a medical drug, call an available healthcare service provider immediately.

          Discuss Side Effects with Healthcare Practitioners

          Always discuss medical drug use with a healthcare professional to help reduce associated toxicity and side effects.

          Recreational Drug Use is Toxic

          Recreational drug use, such as hemp and cannabis flowers and leaves, psilocybin, steroids, opioids, and so on, do not have side effects since no treatment protocol was prescribed. Recreational use of drugs inherently causes physical, emotional, and mental impairment, and may have other injurious and life threatening consequences.

          Drug Toxicity Interactions with Foods and Supplements

          The toxicity of drugs will interact with certain foods and supplements which will increase side effects, such as liver damage, bleeding, and more. Check with your doctor about any food and supplements that will increase drug toxicity and side effects, such as grapefruit, essential fatty acids, and the herbs comfrey and boneset.

          Food and Supplements Do Not Have Medical Drug Risks such as Side Effects, or Any Other Associated Medical Precautions

          Food and supplements do not have medical drug risks, such as side effects, or any other associated medical precautions like adverse events, since food and supplements are not drugs used to treat, manage, prevent, or cure diseases and health-related conditions; although food and supplements may be part of an adverse event.

          Eat complete balanced meals to reduce issues with food. Do not participate in dieting, skipping meals, abstaining from food, or fasting. And take dietary supplements with food to avoid any issues with absorption and digestion.

          Medical Consensus

          Medical consensus is the public facing disclosure and statements of agreed upon methods and practice by a private panel of relevant experts when lack of scientific methods exist or where evidence is contradictory.

          Two consensus methods commonly adopted in medical, nursing, and health services research:

          Delphi Technique

          1. Interpretation of problem by individual experts
          2. Experts share individual opinion
          3. 1st round of agreement or disagreement
          4. 2nd round of agreement or disagreement
          5. Enough agreement equals consensus

          Nominal Group Technique

          1. 9-12 experts approach of problem
          2. Experts share views with facilitator
          3. Facilitator records and groups views
          4. Individual agreement ranked and combined
          5. Analyzed for degree of consensus in two-three rounds
          6. Pass or fail consensus

          up-arrow


          Evidence-Based Peer-Review

          A specific form of medical consensus that is used when their is insufficient data and lacking contradictory research for making medical decisions is called evidence-based medicine done with peer-review, where a panel of experts will reach consensus, with any quality of available evidence, before implementing new methods of practice.

          Evidence-based medicine is about using the best available evidence to direct clinical decision-making and practice guidelines, and offers guidance on how to use the evidence, whether from randomized trials, observational studies, physiological experiments, case series, case reports, or the experience of individual clinicians, to optimally help patients make the best decisions consistent with their circumstances and values.

          Quacks and Quackery

          A Quack Boastfully Shouts Quackery 

          A medical quack is a licensed physician who fraudulently practices allopathic medicine or an unlicensed medical fraudster practicing allopathic medicine.

                Limits of Allopathy

                Medical quacks and fraudsters and legitimate physicians can be difficult to tell apart. Patients who need an answer may compel an unethical physician, who is unable and/or incapable, to invent quackery cures, which are outside of the scope of legitimate practice, trying to help people while maintaining their medical reputation.

                Stone of Folly

                The Gullible Believe Quack Science 

                Hundreds of years ago, 'to quack' was 'to shout' while presenting quackery cures to an audience. A 1650 quack cure for madness was to cut a surgical hole in the head of a patient to remove the imaginary "stone of folly" from someone who may be fearful, gullible, abnormal, mad, or easy-to-deceive with false hopes of magic cures.

                Quacks Got the Wrong Science

                A medical quack wrongly uses science unethically and illegally to treat, prevent, manage, and cure diseases and health-related conditions by using foods, nutrients, medicinal herbs, and supplements. In contrast, foods, nutrients, medicinal herbs, and dietary supplements can be used by anyone to support, maintain and promote health, wellness, and well-being. Drugs intervene in the causes of disease, whereas foods, herbs and supplements work to heal the body with biochemistry.

                Nowadays, a quack is any licensed or unlicensed doctor, physician, medical practitioner, and any website making false claims spreading medical misinformation and disinformation. This includes drugs, surgery, therapies, food, diets, nutrition, nutrients, herbal remedies, dietary supplements, and devices, in the treating, preventing, managing, and curing the causes of diseases that have been diagnosed, including any government unapproved medical prescriptions.

                What's Medical Quackery?

                Medical quackery is the practice of quack medicine by medical quacks and fraudsters. It is based in false health science and is the fraudulent promotion in managing health-related conditions, use of medical treatments, and cure for a disease causes.

                Quackery includes any form of medicine that manages and treats health-related conditions and disease with unapproved and inappropriate drugs, therapy, devices, or procedures, including any use of food, herbs, supplements, and someone's lifestyle.

                Quack doctors and quack websites mislead people into using food, herbs, diets, the mind, a lifestyle, energy, and spiritual rituals for quackery disease cures, instead of teaching people to eat and supplement for health, while integrating lifestyle habits that promote well-being.

                Medical industry quackery is often known by colloquial slang as self-treatment, self-medication, and self care.

                Indigenous Appropriation of Healing Medicine by Quacks 

                Food, herb, supplement, drug, and device quackery were outlawed in 1938, with the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). This is because many allopathic and eclectic medical doctors sold concoctions of various drugs, herbs, foods, and alcoholic beverages as miracles for the management and treatment of many diseases and health-related conditions, especially to vulnerable people. An important amendment to the FFDCA called the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) 1994 further clarifies and defines dietary supplements as a type of food, while prohibiting their medical usage and medical approval.

                Quackery Regulates Allopathy

                During the 1800's, allopathic medical licensing fraud, from diploma mills, was widespread, which added to the definition that quacks are also fraudsters.

                Quackery is Everywhere

                The cause of existing regulation is due to the historical and modern widespread use of quackery for marketing and profit with nutrients, medicinal remedies, dietary supplements, drugs, and surgical procedures for the unlicensed treatment, prevention, management, and cure of the causes of diseases and health-related conditions.

                Anything is Used for Quackery

                During the 1900's 2000's, quacks use everything from food, herbs, dieting, supplements, recreational drugs, search engines, lobotomies, strange electronic devices, energy beams, and pseudo-scientific jargon.

                Government Regulation to Stop Quackery

                Because of lack of private interests' investment, allopathy's practical scope was greatly reduced with the exclusion of eclectic medicine and the passing of the Food and Drug act of 1906 and the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1938.

                Quack Medicine - Snake Oil

                Snake Oil Cures 

                False drug and dietary supplement marketing, and inaccurate pharmaceutical treatment and cure claims are colloquially known as snake oil.

                Old Fashioned Snake Oil for Sale

                Snake oil is a term that originated from intoxicant, poison, and drug-laced patent medicines and the fraudulent marketing of actual snake oil, which is high in essential fatty acids. The quackery of a travelling doctor or a fraudster would use snake oil as a cure all, which might not have really been snake oil, but mineral oil and beef fat.

                Indigenous Appropriation for Profit

                Native American herbalism was used for marketing fraudulent quack medicine cure-alls when physicians and fraudsters appropriated their herbal remedies for travelling shows and exhibitions.

                Soda Wrongly Sold as a Cure-all

                People would sell quack medicine as soda at corner pharmacies for the treatment of health-related conditions, and put recreational drugs in wine and soda, at the same time deceptively marketing them as tonics for building up health, wellness, and wellbeing.

                Intoxicants and Drugs are Not Healthy

                The recreational use of drugs and intoxicants, like tobacco, were wrongly promoted by physicians and fraudsters as healthy treatments and tonics, were actually causing physical, emotional, and mental impairment for mistaken views of wellness and/or false feelings of well-being (e.g. excitation, pain relief, and getting "high".)

                People are Cheated with Quack Medicine

                Medical quacks and fraudsters spike oilslace cosmetics, and deceptively market nutritional supplements, and medicinal remedies with intoxicants, drugs and/or disease treatment claims. This is done so as to give the impression of well-being when consumed, but instead has no health benefits (e.g. for pain relief, to get high, and to perk up a lethargic person showing poor health, instead of giving proper advice on nutrition and supplementation).

                Quackery Creates Bad Relationships with Food, Diet, and Supplements

                Quack doctors, medical scientists, and academic schools speculate as to why food is bad, such as salt, butter, and red meat, by linking food with disease instead of health.

                Quacks often speculate that certain foods are dangerous because they contain too much of a vitamin, particular trace mineral, saturated fat or unique constituent, which is why it is essential that people eat complete balanced meals as part of a diet. Limiting food groups is unhealthy; for example, someone eats only peanut butter for lunch, or restricts and excludes carbohydrates from their diet, or consumes only supplements without meals.

                Quackery uses dieting, diets, and restrictive diet plans to remove food groups and reduce food intake for weight loss or the prevention, management, and treatment of health-related conditions and diseases, such as the Mediterranean, plant-based, low-calorie, vegan, and fasting diets like keto and paleo. Instead of dieting or doing diets, eat a complete balanced diet with additional supplementation, as a better way to approach health, wellness, well-being, and a healthy weight through increasing the density of nutrients in the diet.

                Self-quackery

                Self-quackery is a grouping of terms and wrong practices promoted by unlicensed fraudsters, medical quacks, and search engines to promote illicit abuse of medical ethics and medical licensure by non-patients or patients without their physicians' approval, diagnoses, and prescriptions.

                Examples of Self-quackery:

                • Self-care
                • Self-treatment
                • Self-diagnosis
                • Self-diagnosable
                • Self-prescribe
                • Self-medication

                Self-care is the medical quackery term for an individual to wrongly self-diagnose health-related conditions and diseases for self-treatment while self-prescribing therapies, devices, and drugs, for self-medication (which is recreational use), while also including the quack medicine snake oil uses of lifestyle, activities, diet, dieting, fasting, and/or supplements.  

                Self-treatment is the medical quackery term for an individual to wrongly treat a health-related conditions and/or disease that they have without a medical license, including the fraudulent use of medical practice and a violation of medical ethics, that wrongly expands the scope to lifestyle choices, activities, diet, dieting, fasting, and/or supplements.

                Self-diagnosis is the medical quackery term for an individual to wrongly diagnose themselves without a medical license, including the fraudulent use of medical practice and a violation of medical ethics, oftentimes using search engines.

                Self-diagnosable is the medical quackery term to wrongly give an individual the perception that they are a licensed medical practitioner with the ability to diagnose themselves with a health-related conditions and/or disease through the fraudulent use of medical practice in violation of medical ethics.

                Self-prescribe is the medical quackery term for an individual to wrongly prescribe, without a licensed medical practitioner's prescription, the use of drugs, therapies, devices, and quack medicine snake oil, such as foods, supplements, lifestyles, activities, diets, dieting, and fasting.

                Self-medication is the wrong activity of using drugs recreationally without a licensed medical practitioner's prescription, in the self-care, self-diagnosis, and self-treatment of health-related conditions and diseases.

                Search Engine Quackery

                Currently, in 2022, algorithms, created by search engines, use artificial intelligence (AI) for sourcing search queries that promote quack medicine ideas, which deceive users into creating and implementing quackery.

                Search engineers and medical professionals, use search engines to recursively reinforce quackery repeatedly, until it becomes commonplace misinformation, used in the algorithms created by search engines, and so on.

                Healing medicine is a very complex set of interactions, with many variables within the body, mind, and spirit, which cannot be solved using simplistic AI quackery algorithms of food, nutrients, herbs, diets, and supplements. Allopathic medicine, and all practicing branches, is a non-healing solvable problem that only requires a complicated AI system, for example, a deterministic and linear step-by-step model used in surgery or the prescribing of a drug or therapy to treat a disease that has been diagnosed.

                Similarly, the integration of allopathic medicine into the complex system of classical Chinese medicine and herbalism created the simplified medical system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Traditional Chinese Medicine was created to treat diseases without readily available drugs, devices, or therapies by streamlining the inefficient medical use of herbs and therapies within poor rural areas of China which did not have access to efficient modern medical practice.
