Barefoot Warrior’s comment:
It is so tiring to have to waste time over and over with another #allopatic practitioner who, these days, seems to go by the same script: “If I can’t write a prescription for some #BigPharma #Snake_Oil, I’ll refer this unwitting patient to an ever more expansive (and expensive) list of #specialists. Just tick the appropriate boxes on my check-list.”
Nobody ever tells you that the higher you are referred to the specialist specialists, and the more they charge, the less they know or understand the whole person. If they even want to know because don’t you dare question their infallible authority. After all it is they who have spent many years looking through a microscope to refine their reductionist specialisation. They (think they) know…
It is high time we seek out the Holistic Practitioner and tell all our friends and family about it when we find one in our area. It is high time we collectively say a loud ‘NO’ to the allopatic model of disease care. it is a dismal failure. Thank you Mr #Rockefeller for your bold plan to monopolise disease care (for profit). It worked.

Holism, Health and Cannabis
By Susan Boskey
Holism is about the big picture; it relates to the theory that nothing happens in a vacuum. When seeking answers to a problem, #holism puts the emphasis on the ‘whole’ rather than the parts.
The English Oxford Dictionaries define holism:
The theory that parts of a whole are in intimate interconnection, such that they cannot exist independently of the whole, or cannot be understood without reference to the whole, which is thus regarded as greater than the sum of its parts.
