Oliver Wendell Holmes, MD: Putting Medications on Trial: 1861
Another key figure who fought non-Hippocratic medicine was Oliver Wendell Holmes.20,24 In an 1861 lecture to the Massachusetts Medical Society, he described the role of med- ications in Hippocratic medicine as:
Presumptions are of vast importance in medicine, as in law. A man is presumed innocent until he is proven guilty. A medicine . . . should always be presumed to be hurtful. It always is directly hurtful; it might sometimes be indirectly beneficial. If this presumption were established . . . we should not so frequently hear the remark . . . that, on the whole, more harm than good is done by medication.24
“Throw out opium, which the creator himself seems to prescribe, for we often see the scarlet poppy growing in the cornfields, as if it were foreseen that wherever there is hunger to be fed there must also be pain to be soothed; throw out a few specifics [vitamins and minerals] which our art did not discover, and is hardly need to apply; throw out wine, which is a food, and the vapours which produce the miracle of anesthesia, and I firmly believe that if the whole materia medica [equivalent to our current Physician’s Desk Reference], as now used, could be sunk to the bottom of the sea, it would be all the better for mankind,—and all the worse for the fishes.24”
“1/2 Surgical, cancer, sickle cell, and chronic pain patients across the country often have extreme difficulty filling legitimate prescriptions for pain medication at retail pharmacies. Ignorant politicians, like @CortezMasto who created this mess should be held accountable.”
“These government experts do not portray what the actual practice of medicine is. They pick and choose from diverse standards and medical articles to create a standard that convicts the victimized prescriber”.
