Been reading alot on Nassim Taleb Antifragile. Good book to exercise your mind. He spoke abit on iatrogenics, how medicine is based firstly on practitioner’s knowledge followed by the academic (which tried to fit existing practitioner’s knowledge thru theories).
Thought about this with regards to moisturizer/MW issue. I no longer view it as a right or wrong way to do MW or not. Rather, I view it as a sucker / non-sucker problem for existing moisturizer users.
As a practitioner, I’m glad I’m a non-sucker in terms of moisturizing. Increased comfort, increased mobility (after 3 weeks of withdrawal), Increased strength of skin, decreased susceptibility to skin breaks, increased rate of healing, decreased rate of whining, decreased scratching, decreased flares, increased quality of life.
