The Theoretical Foundation of Medicine
Abstract: In this paper the postulates of medicine are questioned and a new postulate will be introduced. The accepted opinion is that physics is the most fundamental science and that medicine, chemistry and other disciplines are built on it. I?m not sure this is the final answer and I will argue that, most likely, the fundament and foundation of science is not based on different matters/materials as in physics, but on the logic of principles, dealing with the behaviour of the objects in all sciences, i. e. how the behaviour of the physical reality occurs, regardless of its content. Today the science of medicine is mostly based on two postulates: 1. Causal reasoning, i. e. to make sense of cause and effect.2. The human body is controlled by the laws of physics. The new postulate for medicine is: 3. Nothing exists in isolation, i. e. everything exists in relations. This postulate is valid for scientific objects as well as for human sciences, i. e. the postulate is at the most fundamental level, before we even think of science and humans; this is valid for all objects and all beings. Based on the Principle or Relations, PR, diseases will occur when R is broken. A broken R is a disorder behind diseases. A broken R is a disorder behind diseases, such as: o AV-block III o Stroke o Heart attack and cardiac infarction o Alzheimer's disease ? AD o Schizophrenia o Kidney failure o Pain, e. g. in spine, bedpan and muscles o Cancer. When transports in and out of the cell are blocked, the transport of molecules, endocytosis, and waste, exocytosis, cannot be performed.
