Re: "TAT touts wellness industry strength", (BP, March 24).
Tourism Authority of Thailand governor Yuthasak Supasorn compared Thailand's medical expenses with the US. He failed to realise the US and EEC and some non-EEC countries enjoy the status of 1st world, and the GDP levels are much higher than Thailand. The TAT governor may not be aware that many foreign patients moved to their neighbouring South Asian powerhouse India, where expenses are three times lower than in Thailand with a high quality of doctors and medical analysis while the medium of communication is English.
You have another category of patients who are much wealthier than the normal rich who moved to either Singapore or the UK, which signifies the quality of the medical doctors and the level of the holistic approach to patients.
Thailand is creating a world of "healthscare" instead of healthcare.
Instead of promoting so-called western scientific modern medicines, which are based on a fully false myth of so-called Western science, Thailand should focus on holistic therapy with Thai, Chinese and Indian herbal ancient Ayurveda.
Western medical science is only good for a quick fix and does not cure permanently. Every Western medicine has an ADR effect on the body, which affects the liver and heart. Many Western medicines contain chemicals which leak through the liver and go on to damage every organ possible.
We have the only best medical solution, which is called TLC (tender loving care), and for every disease, we can cure naturally and without putting all hope in Western medicines.
My request is to widen the awareness among the public and ask doctors to prescribe food as medicine. We have to save our future generations.
In this respect, I have to ask whether Anutin Chanvirakul, our health minister, is really fit for the job?
The whole world knows the effectiveness of Covid vaccines from China and Pfizer. Yet, the public health ministry bought those medicines to provide vaccinations to the public.
Wondering why no investigative reports have been published in any Thai media.
