BRAVO! Also the herbalists and the supplement folk! They go round the world and speak to the tribal "doctors" and bring home the plants to try!
""The industrialized West -- at a terrible cost to the rest of humanity and to the environment -- has all-but severed its link to the realm of spirit.""
Not only that, they have institutionalized some very awful things, and committed some terrible actions using the "taught doctors" of our day (first early X-rays and then annual mammograms, but perhaps worst of all early chemo). [I think surgery is barbaric, but that is just me. Think of a paper cut only millions of times worse --that is my take on going under the knife.]
They "thought" they were doing good .... but in the long run, they did have the witch trials all over to get rid of the people who really knew the good stuff --before they went whole hog, trying to have the upper & financially well off hand!
I have even darker thoughts on this, but probably not for here.
Beware the Adze!
Beware the land it came from.
