If you want medical advice, ask a doctor, or at least someone who does not mind getting sued (e.g. someone protected by malpractice insurance, or those who practice duck medicine (i.e. those who have learned how to waddle past an erotically blindfolded lady justice without bestirring her in her robes)).

  2. Dr. Geyser says:

    That is an excellent question. Traditional, allopathic medicine is centered upon the opposition between health and disease, where the patient is typically seeking treatment for a disease. Gratuitous medicine, on the other hand, sees health as a value that can be augmented, both for those who are sick as well as for those who are healthy. Those who practice allopathic medicine restrict their scope of practice to those who are ill, and will not generally prescribe medications for non-therapeutic uses. Some drugs used to treat inattentivity in children, for instance, are also useful as cognitive enhancers. Inattentive children are said to have a condition warranting the prescription of psychostimulants, while those who wish to use the same medications for the same purpose, for instance, as a means of proving their attention span with respect to a particular project, event, occupation or way of life, are nevertheless referred to as ‘drug-seekers’ and ‘substance abusers,’ under medicine as well as under law. Gratuitous medicine takes as its founding principle the fact that there are innumerable healths, such that those who impose their own way of life and form of health upon others are understood to be gratuitously unhealthy with respect to those who are healthiest of all.

    In an altered mental state wherein patients answer incorrectly the question, “What year are we in today?”, do they tend to go high or low? For instance, the year is 2017, but I am in a state of delirium or fugue, and the physician asks me, “What year is it?” Will I be more likely to invent a year, say 2042, refer to past years in which I have lived, say 1993, or refer to historical years prior to my birth, say 1856. I realize that this may defer between pathological syndromes. For instance, I expect a patient who is exhibiting signs of Alzheimer’s dementia to refer to prior years in which they have lived, but not to claim that they are themselves Napoleon Bonaparte.

    Thanks!
