Doctors aren't gods or all-knowing
Many people bow down before doctors as if they are all-knowing, supernatural beings, instead of heavily conditioned humans, with a limited, often blinkered view of health and illness.
Understanding the health industry and it's shady underpinnings and birth gives rise to a healthy skepticism in the patient.
As a result, we seek out health practitioners that are aware of the benefits and limitations of the various healing approaches, and who provide advice, not orders to follow.
Arrogant doctors who expect to be able to order patients around are to be avoided, as their arrogance betrays their ignorance and lack of respect for individual free will.
