Dr Hisham Abdalla - Part 1
We have a great friend and inspiration on the show with us today, Dr. Hisham Abdalla! Dr. Hisham is a doctor and dentist and he explains this distinction and why he chose dentistry as his area of specialization. Our guest's approach to medicine is so refreshing, vehemently and actively looking for ways to integrate what is often disparate in the medical community, namely all the different types of evidence and wisdom that are available to us.
This holistic approach is essential to better, healthier practices according to Dr. Hisham, and he makes a number of very strong arguments against the narrow view of much of the medical field and its practitioners, an attitude that hurts the patient in the end! He gives us some great insight into how we can truly understand the idea of evidence-based beliefs and how these are merely determined by a sphere of reference. We get into what constitutes convention and some examples of how these conventions change over time, despite initial resistance to new findings.
One of Dr. Hisham's main aspirations is to take away the adversarial dynamic that so often occurs between opposing beliefs; if we all actually want the same thing we should remove the stigma and slandering that goes into these debates. For this wonderful chat, make sure to tune in and for even more on solutions to the issues raised in this episode, keep an eye out for part two, in the near future!
