I could buy that for certain conditions - that stuff you take for a cold,
for example, is only to help your body get through it and recover.

But I've seen my dad have surgery to remove two ruptured discs; to replace 2
heart valves and do 2 bypasses; and to replace a knee.  I suppose you could
argue that the surgeries were a way to get the body to a place where it
could heal, but all 3 of them were medical interventions to accomplish
something that the body simply couldn't have done without help . . . .
