Illness is a purposeful process of the organism. The process of
healing includes the generation of symptoms which are, in fact an
expression of the life force attempting to heal itself. Therapeutic
actions should be complementary to and synergistic with the
healing process. The physicians actions can support or antagonize
the actions of nature. Therefore, methods designed to suppress
symptoms without removing underlying causes are considered
harmful and are avoided or minimized. I will teach you all to
regenerate and heal.
Prayer for today: Lord, I ask for a singleness of purpose and the ability to lift at least a part of the burden of suffering from my fellow man. I pray that I will always realize that being a physician is a privilege and an honor. And lord take from me all guile and worldliness so that with the simple faith of a child I rely on thee.
