REFRAMING THE MEDICAL PARADIGM: CRITICALLY THINKING WITH DR. P
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6
Our current medical and scientific paradigms are based on a number of commonly accepted “facts,” generally agreed upon as unrefutable truths. We hold these truths to be self-evident, and propagate them in all manner of speech, education, teachings, textbooks, and conventional medical practices. But what if we stop and analyze these unrefutable truths? And what if in our analyses, we find there are truths greater and more powerful than those we had previously thought of as irrefutable? In my talk, I will examine some of the “truths” within our current framework, and see what’s possible if we put on our critical thinking hats. Is there a new framework from which to launch the New Medical Paradigm? I’d like to think so.
