How to Practice Medicine - By Bill Mitchel, ND
1. The purpose of the 1st visit is to assure a 2nd visit
2. Do not destroy the patients ceremonies!
3. Be Flexible
The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.
The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990
He who takes medicine and neglects to diet wastes the skill of his doctors. ~Chinese Proverb
My own prescription for health is less paperwork and more running barefoot through the grass. ~Leslie Grimutter
