BioVeda’s Dr. Gary Douglas first wrote about the importance of trace minerals here, and Elizabeth Walling at The Nourished Life has re-posted the article for her readers with her comments. Take a look at her great blog all about natural nourishment and living and see what she has to say about trace minerals!
Every patient that walks into your office should be viewed as a person first and not as a diagnosis. After working with patients for many years I have found that a great number of patients are misdiagnosed.
Under the current medical system, doctors, nurses, lab technicians and hospital executives are not actually paid to come up with the right diagnosis. They are paid to perform tests and to do surgery and to dispense drugs. There is no bonus for curing someone and no penalty for failing, except when the mistakes rise to the level of malpractice. So even though doctors can have the best intentions, they have little economic incentive to spend time double-checking their instincts, and hospitals have little incentive to give them the tools to do so.
