A Word From Caroline Duncan, MD
When becoming a physician, all future doctors must recite the Hippocratic oath that begins with, "first, do no harm." The current healthcare regime in America is a corrupt corporate conglomerate that is morally ill systemically and systematically and causes harm. The physicians within this current regime are robbed of the intellectual space to think critically about clinical presentation and their decisions and outcomes are controlled by insurance companies and pharmaceutical monopolies. This set-up results in check-box diagnoses and a lack of informed consent, further resulting in cash-cow procedures and studies, and poly-pharma that cause harm.
Environmental Medicine uses a Timeline of a patient's medical history gleaned after at least an hour-long discussion with the patient that aims at uncovering the root cause of illness. The Allergic and Toxic history & workup are especially emphasized in an effort to identify triggers for disease. Unlike the aforementioned regime, in the field of Environmental Medicine knowledge is power.
