The ineptitude of the medical profession is hallmarked by their sheer ignorance of the human body. This stems from a combination of institutional training and then leaps over to their field, medical offices and even conferences and continuing education to reinforce this training, just in case they happen to gain some wisdom from their practice. The human body is perfect, period. Any advice coming from any person who attempts to convince you that a part of your body is unnecessary, useless or needs to be removed, has no place in any health profession, let alone the medical profession. Here are 6 examples of body parts which doctors think are useless, but really are not.
Their common argument is that due to the complexity of our bodies, certain organs and parts have become less and less needed over time and simply not needed for survival. Well, quality of life and survival are two totally different things.
Medical Claim: According to doctors, tonsils cause people pain. They are prone to becoming infected and swelling up. Doctors have been prescribing tonsillectomies for decades for those with recurrent sore throats.. And you know what that means, surgery to get rid of ‘em!
Reality: Experts now know that the long-term risks of this procedure are a detriment to overall immunity and exceed any short-term benefit.
Chronic swelling of tonsils is best addressed by reducing sugar intake, adopting a minimally processed diet that is rich in fresh plant foods, and supporting immune system health by getting plenty of rest, exercise, and exposure to sunlight and fresh air.
Previous research at the University at Buffalo has shown that removal of tonsils and adenoids results in less fidgeting and other non-exercise motor activity which results in weight gain.
In another study involving 300 children aged 2 to 8 advised to have their tonsils out, those who avoided surgery had fewer annual visits to doctors and lower resulting medical costs due to fevers and throat infections.
A new study provides evidence that a critical type of immune cell can develop in human tonsils. The cells, called T lymphocytes, or T cells, have been thought to develop only in the thymus, an organ of the immune system that sits on the heart.
Medical Claim: Doctors claim the adenoids only provide a strong defense against bacteria that is inhaled. As you grow, your adenoids shrink, which makes them useless. They are only helpful when you are a child. Doctors generally recommend adenoidectomy or adenoid removal in children if their are snoring, have sleep apnea, even if they have recurrent ear infections.
Reality: Like the tonsils, the adenoids are one of the most important parts of your immune system because they are located near the entrance of your breathing passages, and they serve as a first line of defense against undesirable airborne microorganisms and substances.
Although you can easily see your tonsils by standing in front of a mirror and opening your mouth wide, you can’t see your adenoids this way.
The importance of adenoids lies in its ability to physically restrict the nasopharyngeal space, rendering a decrease in nasal passage expansion which is a good thing to for disease prevention. Adenoids also contain cells that make antibodies to help your body fight infections.
3. GALL BLADDER
Medical Claim: Just another part of the body that needs to be surgically removed especially when it produces gall stones.
Reality: The gallbladder serves an important digestive function. It is required to emulsify fats. The gallbladder stores bile and bile acids, which emulsify the fat one eats so it can be properly transported through the intestine into the blood stream.
Anyone who has their gallbladder removed needs to take some form of bile salts with every meal for the rest of their life, if they wish to prevent a good percentage of the good fats they eat from being flushed down the toilet. Since most people who remove their gall bladder ignore this advice, this is exactly what happens and they have little absorption of good fats. If one does not have enough fats in the diet, their entire physiology will be disrupted, especially the ability to make hormones and prostaglandins.
Instead of removing your gallbladder, lifestyle changes including changing dietary habits and exercise will prevent any problems that exist with your gallbladder, especially stones. (READ FULL ARTICLE)
