公平分配資源 投資另類醫學 堅拒紅色醫工!

2017/7/6 — 15:22

(立場科學版編按:順勢療法已被証實為偽科學,未有真正醫療效用,詳看博客小肥波文章《順勢療法有效嗎?》與 y 的《偽科學鑑證︰順勢療法》)

港府話未來十年,缺醫護人員二千二百人,立會衛生事務委員會建議招聘非本地受訓醫療人員,雖然無提中國大陸醫護人員,但曾蔭權時代,周一嶽已建議引入中共醫生。舊年梁振英欲藉委任操控醫委會,降低來港執業門檻,從而引入中共醫生。其實,如今已有不少大陸醫生在公院行醫。舊年兩間護理公司更聘用中國受訓護士。所以,招聘非本地受訓醫療人員,難保不會變成引入大陸醫護人員。

本人反對輸入大陸醫生護士,事關中共醫學每多造假,中共醫生護士,無論醫學道德抑或醫學訓練都同香港相差極遠。反對強摘器官醫生組織發現中國醫生有系統廣泛活摘器官。再者,今年四月,知名學術出版機構SPRINGER撤回造假醫學論文一百零七篇,幾乎全部同中國醫學家有關。舊年九月,美國抄襲監察網站PLAGIARISM WATCH發現巴西醫學雜誌SCI,收錢幫中國學者發表大量涉嫌抄襲造假論文。如果定要輸入西醫外勞,可招聘醫學訓練系統同香港一樣的英聯邦西醫。

另一方面,香港醫護不足,當局何不考慮公平分配資源,不獨投資西醫,同時投資中醫同自然療法,比如順勢療法呢?

建議起獨立中醫院,何解要獨立?事關根據中醫博士李宇銘〈中西醫結合的糖衣〉,中西醫思想截然不同,理論根本無法融合。中醫重整體; 西醫重局部。中醫用形而上、系統的方式認識人體;西醫則用形而下、還原的方式。中醫著重中國傳統文化,重視和諧、順應自然;西醫基於西方文化,重視抗爭、人定勝天。

自然療法五花八門,比如順勢療法,科學研究證明有效。例如:GIBSON (一九八零) 研究四十六位風濕性關節炎病人,一年之間,用順勢療法醫,四成以上可停食西藥;安慰劑組則無改善。JACOBS et·al (一九九四) 研究八十一位尼加拉瓜急性肚疴兒童,用順勢療法醫,七十二小時內,全部大為改善(安慰劑組則否),救苦救命,平靚正。

一八三五年,威廉四世皇后身患重病,各種藥石無靈,唯靠順勢療法起死回生,從此順勢療法成為皇室生活一部份。自此,許多皇室成員,包括瑪莉皇后(一八六五至一九五三)、佐治五世(一八六五至一九三六)、愛德華七世(一八四一至一九一零)及愛德華八世(一八九四至一九七二)均靠順勢療法延年益壽。英女皇九十歲,無論去到何處都隨身帶備順勢藥樽,皇儲查理斯,與其母一樣堅信順勢療法

建議政府成立順勢療法醫院同醫學院,培訓人材,造福病人。

總之,建議:起另類療法醫院,勿輸入大陸醫工!

Chapman Chen: Invest in Alternative Medicine; Say No to Red Medical Staff! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZ8GKLgyCmI

The Hong Kong Government says that in the coming ten years, there will a shortage of 2200 medical staff members. The Legco Panel on Health Services proposes that non-locally trained medical staff be recruited.  Although Mainland China medical staff is not mentioned in the Panel's report, Dr. York Chow, former Secretary for Food and Health of Hong Kong, already proposed importation of mainland doctors and nurses when Donald Tsang was Chief Executive. Last year, former Chief Executive C.Y. Leung tried to manipulate The Medical Council of Hong Kong, in order to lower the threshold for extra-territorial medical staff to come and practise in Hong Kong, and to introduce doctors from Communist China. In fact, there are now already quite a few Mainland doctor practising in public hospitals in Hong Kong. Last year, two home care companies recruited nurses trained in China. So there is good reason to suspect that recruiting non-locally trained medical staff  could mean recruiting medical staff trained in Communist China.

I object to importing Mainland doctors and nurses, because medical studies in China are often fraudulent; doctors and nurses from Communist China significantly differ from those from Hong Kong in terms of medical ethics and medical training. Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting finds that organ harvesting in China is a widespread, systematic, state-sanctioned atrocity. In April this year, the prestigious academic publisher, Springer, withdrew 107 medical articles, almost all of which were connected with China medical scholars. In September last year, Plagiarism Watch discovered that the Brazilian medical magazine SCI had been paid by China scholars to publish a number of articles suspected of plagiarism and fraud. If it is absolutely necessary to import Western-style medical staff, only Commonwealth medical staff whose training system is similar to that of Hong Kong should be considered.

On the other hand, with shortage of medical staff, why do the authorities not consider a fairer distribution of resources? Why shouldn't investment be made, not only in Western-style medicine, but also in traditional Chinese medicine and natural therapies, e.g., homeopath?

I propose that an independent traditional Chinese medicine hospital be set up. Why should it be independent? Well, according to Dr. Vincent Lee Yu-ming, a local expert in Chinese medicine, the philosophical systems of Western and Chinese medicines so vastly different from each other that their theories simply cannot be merged. Chinese medicine stresses the whole; Western medicine places a premium on individual parts. Chinese medicine understands the human body metaphysically and systematically, while Western medicine is more physical and reductionist. Chinese medicine emphasizes harmony and compliance with nature, while Western stresses struggle and conquer of nature.

There are many kinds of natural therapy. Some of them are scientifically proved to be effective, for example, homeopath. Gibson (1980) randomized 46 patients to homeopathic remedies or placebo. Within 12 months, 42 percent of homeopathically treated patients, but not the placebo group, managed to stop all conventional pharmaceutical treatments. Jacobs et al. (1994) treated 81 Nicaraguan children suffering from dangerously acute diarrhea with standard support of IV fluids, plus either an individualized homeopathic remedy or placebo. After 72 hours, the group that received a homeopathic therapy had a statistically significant decrease in duration of diarrhea and in number of stools per day.

The British Royal Family, including Queen Adelaide, Queen Victoria, Queen Mary, King George V,  King George VI, The Queen Mother, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, etc. , has been known for having special appreciation and even advocacy for homeopathy. Most of them enjoyed or are still enjoying longevity. (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dana-ullman/the-kings-homeopath_b_827499.html)

I, therefore, propose that the government set up a homeopathy hospital and a homeopath medical school.

In a word, in order to protect the safety of Hong Kong patients, build hospitals of alternative medicine, and do not import medical staff from China!

Note: The above is Chapman Chen's speech delivered on 4 July, at the public hearing of Legco Panel on Health Services, on strategic review on healthcare manpower planning and professional development.
