Without delving too far into the study of genetics and biology, the basic tenant is essentially that the body is a mechanistic, bio-machine, that has parts that sometimes fail, and thus, like a car, need to be replaced and repaired. This concept is fairly accurate to a point, but that point has underlying root causes that create certain manifestations which are less than favorable to the organism. Things do wear down, and yes they must be replaced or repaired, however short of a life threatening immediate circumstance, there exists no better “surgeon” and replacer of “parts” then the organ which resides in the skull, and the body which it commands.
The study of pharmaceuticals and their efficacy inadvertently distracts us from observing something very telling about an aspect of the results found from a “failed” trial. When testing a drug, conditions are set to root out the possibility of the action of the drug being affected by a subject’s own physiological responses, via blind and/or double-blind trials. When it is found that the subject has healed as a result of anything other than the drug itself, then focus on that pharmaceutical is adopted as the underlying subject of investigation.
