What's Allopathic Medicine?
Allopathic medicine, allopathy, intervenes with the causes of any states and conditions of a the body, emotions, and mind which are diagnosed as diseases. Allopathy treats, prevents, mitigates and cures the causes of disease and is not to be confused with healing and supporting health and wellbeing with nutrition and other forms of medicine.
Allopathic medicine is the government and organizationally regulated medical healthcare industry of intervening with the causes of diseases using drugs, surgery and therapy, including trauma care and mending injuries to tissues.
Allopathy Science is Pathology
Pathology is the theoretical science of allopathy for studying, researching, and discovering the causes of disease. Pathology use biomedical scientific interpretation of bioscience, biochemistry, and healing medicine to improve understanding of the theories about diseases, advance diagnosis success, and produce more effective treatment protocols.
Allopathic Practice and Development
Allopathic medicine uses government and industry approved methods of licensure to practice as a physician or a nurse for diagnosing the causes of diseases for treatment with drugs, surgery, and other medical therapies. The practice of allopathic medicine advances with the evidence-based peer-review of biomedical research to ensure safety and efficacy of therapies and avoid quackery.
Quackery Regulates Allopathic Practice
Allopathy's practical scope was greatly reduced with the exclusion of eclectic medicine, because of lack of private interests' investment, government legislation, and widespread quackery with nutrients, medicinal remedies, dietary supplements, drugs, and surgical procedures for the treatment, prevention, mitigation and cure of the causes of diseases.
Allopathy and the Snake Oil Salesman
Be Careful of Doctors Who Sell Snake Oil Cures †
Native American herbalism had no concepts of any state or condition requiring the treatment intervention with the causes of diseases before being introduced to allopathic physicians during colonialization which quickly led to the appropriation of herbal remedies for snake oil quackery use.
