Prevention of illness isn't primarily your doctor's responsibility, WHY? Because he doesn't live with you or live in your shoes to monitor what is going on inside your body or what you do with your spare time or at work!
How do you know what is going on inside your body at all times? You don't.
Where are the solutions? Why are people so afraid of the 'mental health' system?
The fact is that, especially with mental health -- even if these 'healthcare systems' get more funding, they are still repeating the same so-called treatments with very poor recovery rates compared to the combination of nutrient therapy and pharmaceutical intervention. People see the horror stories in the media, and they are fairly accurate in that they often portray people given labels, dispensed a drug, and find out their medical history is ruined. Worst of all, they are stigmatized if they tell anyone, and they have to often be shifted from one drug to another when the previous drug inevitably develops a resistance in the body! Is it any wonder why people are fearful of going to these "experts" who mainly push drugs based on the highly politicized DSM (diagnostic statistical manual) that psychiatrists rely upon?
Research shows many males these days are not getting the support they need, especially when they grow up. I was once of those people who didn't have many males supporting me in my life compared to the girls in my family who frequently got together to help each other. In the book "The Boy Crisis," they outline the challenges that especially males face in today's society which focuses on female learning styles in school and the focus on recruiting women into previously "male dominated" roles. The odd thing is women in Western society up until 100 years ago performed many "male tasks" and teachers were mainly males among other things that would run counter to the dogma of today. One such poignant and obvious example is my current focus on obtaining training in the nutrient analysis (also popularly called nutritionist) field, as a stepping stone to something larger like a nutrient psychology. There are many scholarly works showing how males are being disadvantaged, comparatively speaking, relative to females in today's society. All the way from men performing the most dangerous tasks for money, to having harsh stereotypes imposed on them. This isn't to say females aren't treated unfairly; it is to say we all could use more of a dose of the cliched common-sense, equity, and more evidence-based approaches to gender relations in this society. I say "this society" because issues are not the same around the world. In places like Japan, women and men are seen entirely differently, yet they too also have their grievances with how other humans are treated in the workplace, at home, in school, and in regular every-day life.
