Allopathy and Allopaths
[back] Terminology  Forbidden words (medicine)

"The beginning of wisdom is to call things by the right names."  Chinese Proverb
"In Medicine, as in statecraft and propaganda, words are sometimes the most powerful drugs we can use." -----Sara Murray Jordan

[Part of Forbidden words (medicine), some by law.  Allopathy is always called: Orthodox, Modern, Scientific, Contemporary, Traditional, Conventional or School medicine.  It revolves around the products of the drug industry--Pharmaceutical drugs.  And Allopaths are the medical doctors who only use these drugs.  Not all MDs are Allopaths, many use Alternative medicine (non-Allopathic medicine, see below). 
     Allopathy and Allopath are pretty much  banned words.  Allopaths don't like the word, usually citing the homeopathic pejorative origins of 'treating symptoms'. But, and this shows the importance of words, the main reason is the fact Allopathy has to hide its monopoly status, and Allopaths like to maintain the illusion (mostly to themselves) that their medicine is the only one of any value, that it is based purely on science (
evidence-based medicine), and that any modality, if shown to be effective (see: if it works), will be incorporated into it.  And that anything else is Pseudoscience and quackery.  Also if they allow themselves to be labelled it is looking outside the wood or the walls of Allopathy into the real world, not the one they have been sold by Allopathy and Big Brother.  That way lies too many uncomfortable truths (see) usually hidden by denial/Rationalizations.  One even banned the use of the term on Wikipedia

I have asked you in the past to desist from labeling users or groups of users as "allopaths". This is inflammatory, not contributory to the discussion, and in plain violation of WP:CIVIL. You have now repeatedly done the same on Talk:Measles. I am uninvolved in that discussion but observe that you are making the same basic policy violations as always. ----Jfdwolff

The Media operates as the covert trade rag of Allopathy, where Allopathic press releases and Allopaths like Ben Goldacre and other Experts can propagandise with no restraint or right of reply by non-Allopathic doctors, while Allopathic outriders known as the Health Fraud movement operate as thought police on the net and with their own propaganda outlets (eg Science-Based Medicine), alongside the Allopathic run government 'health' outfits (NHS, CDC), regulatory agencies (FDA), international health agencies (WHO), & Medical Charities.
     The key is invisibility.  As long as Allopathy can hide itself its monopoly is safe.  But you can see how it all just rests on information control and enforced ignorance.]

The key is invisibility
. Once propaganda becomes visible, it's less effective. Public relations is effective in manipulating opinion - and thus public policy - only if people believe that the message covertly delivered by the PR campaign is not propaganda at all but simply common sense or accepted reality. WAR ON TRUTH The Secret Battle for the American Mind An Interview with John Stauber (emphasis added)

"Allopathy : Also known as ‘scientific medicine’, ‘orthodox medicine’ and ‘modern medicine’, is barely about 200 years old. It lays emphasis on drugs. It offers antibiotics, synthetic vitamins, steroids, chemotherapy, radiation, and immunization all of which are highly dangerous. Its diagnostics methods are not foolproof and 95% of surgeries in allopathic hospitals are unnecessary. Doctors of modern medicine receive their continuing education from Medical Representatives of (P)harmaceuticals, and prescribe lethal drugs based on cuts and commission. These inadequately tested and prescribed drugs create more diseases. Allopathy is a ‘pseudo science’ which has done more harm to health and wellbeing of humanity than any other 40 odd systems of healing described below."----  A TO Z  OF ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE by Dr. Leo Rebello  (A chapter from Dr. Leo Rebello's popular book  AIDS and Alternative Medicine, 4th Edition)
