医生给病人 “判死刑”合适吗?

The Medical Death Sentence

by Gregory Allen Butler

翻译:蓝山

我认为医生给病人的医疗死亡判决是错误的。你可以称我为乐观主义者,但我相信,正如Kirkegaard所做的那样,每个人都是例外。还有一些例外是超越医学预测的。

 


Inayat Khan讲了这个故事:


我认识一个医生检查过的人。他被告知他将在三个月内死去。但他走到我跟前说:“胡说!”死于三个月吗? 即使在三百年之内我也不会死。”
三个月后,医生去世了,这个人给我带来了这个消息!


我们必须学会尊重人,认识到人的灵魂是超越生与死的,人的灵魂有一种神圣的精神,所有的疾病和痛苦都只是他的试验和磨炼。他在他们之上,我们必须设法使他克服疾病。


我妻子的父亲在他39岁的时候,被诊断出患有葛瑞氏症,并告诉他,他只剩下5到7年的生命了。五年后他去世了。我妻子认为他放弃了希望。我不明白为什么医生不会这么说:“大多数患有这种疾病的人活了5到7年,但你永远不知道。”也许你是个例外。”


就在这周,我有幸让我的眼科医生惊喜。去年夏天,她认为我患上了青光眼。她想让我开始吃药。我知道这不是必的。我礼貌地拒绝了,并让她在四个月后再检查一次。她同意了。这周她根本没有发现任何 异常。眼内压正常,可见视野检查。


“你是怎么做到的?””她问道。
“维生素C和运动,”我告诉她。
“嗯,你很好,”我离开她的检查室时她说。


我曾经有一个医生,他毫不含糊地告诉我:“你一定会患上青光眼。”
他没有说“也许”,甚至“很可能”,他说“肯定”。我再也没有回去见过他。我不需要那种教条,负能量。


当病人有信心克服困难时,他们就有很大的机会去做那件事。他们当然不需要医生告诉他们这是不可能的。


但是,也许这只是一些人需要的动力。他们很想证明医生错了,他们就是这么做的。


一年半前,我去了一个由Gary Null的主办的讲座。看到十几位病人站在观众席上,得到了他的认可,这让人振奋。这些患者都曾是病人,有些人的历史可以追溯到17年前,他们被传统医学告知他们有绝症。通过从Gary处学到的自然疗法和健康的生活方式,他们证明了他们以前的医生是错的。他们克服了医学上的死刑。也许Gary Null把他们看作是例外,让他们相信。


如果这些病人相信他们的医生呢?他们会放弃的。但是他们没有。他们不仅活着,而且在激励别人。


有时严重的疾病是无法克服的。我们迟早都会死的。但如果一种疾病或疾病会杀了我,那就必须证明给我看。我不会把它当成是从一个不如我一样了解我自己的医生得到的二手知识。

 

The Medical Death Sentence
by Gregory Allen Butler
 

I think it is wrong when a doctor gives to a patient a medical death sentence. You can call me an optimist, but I believe as Kirkegaard did that every man is an exception. And some of the exceptions pertain to outliving medical predictions.

Inayat Khan told this story:

I knew a person whom a physician had examined. He was told that he would die in three months. But he came to me and he said, “What nonsense! Die in three months? I am not going to die even in three hundred years.”

And to our great surprise within three months the doctor died, and this man brought me the news!

We must learn to respect the human being and realize that a human soul is beyond birth and death, that a human soul has a divine spirit in it, and that all illnesses and pains and sufferings are only his tests and trials. He is above them, and we must try to raise him above illness.

The Doctor's PredictionMy wife’s father, when he was just 39-years-old, was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and told that he had only five to seven years of life left. He died five years later. My wife believes he gave up hope. I don’t see why it would be so hard for a doctor to say something like this instead: “Most people with this condition live five to seven years, but you never know. Maybe you can be an exception.”

Just this week I had the pleasure to pleasantly surprise my ophthalmologist. Last summer she thought I was developing glaucoma. She wanted me to start taking medication. I knew that wasn’t necessary. I politely refused and told her to check me again in four months. She agreed. This week she found no sign of it at all. The inner-ocular pressure was normal as was the visual field test.

“How did you do that?” she asked.

“Vitamin C and exercise,” I told her.

“Well, you’re fine,” she said as I left her examination room.

I once had a doctor who told me in no uncertain terms: “You are definitely going to develop glaucoma.”

He didn’t say “maybe,” or even “probably,” he said “definitely.” I never went back to see him. I don’t need that type of dogmatic, negative energy.

When patients have confidence in themselves to overcome a condition then they have a great chance to do just that. They certainly don’t need a doctor telling them that it can’t be done.

But then again, maybe that is just the motivation some people need. They want so bad to prove the doctor wrong that they do just that.

I went to a lecture a year and a half ago by Gary Null. It was inspiring to see over a dozen patients of his stand up in the audience and be acknowledged by him. These were patients, some with histories going back 17 years, told by conventional medicine that they had terminal illnesses. Through natural healing methods and healthy lifestyles learned from Gary, they proved their former doctors wrong. They overcame the medical death sentence. Perhaps Gary Null saw them all as exceptions and got them to believe it.

What if these patients believed their doctors? They would have given up. But they didn’t. Not only are they alive, they are inspiring others.

Sometimes serious illnesses can’t be overcome. We all die sooner or later. But if a disease or illness is going to kill me, it’s going to have to prove it to me. I’m not going to take it as second-hand knowledge from a doctor who doesn’t know me as well as I do.
