The ‘western medicine’ theory of anaesthesia is a lie, according to anaesthetics expert Anuta Bhatia.
In an interview with The Hindu, the former British Medical Journal editor-in-chief revealed that her own “western medicine” theory of anesthetic therapy “has become a big joke” as it was once a cornerstone of her profession.
Bhatia, who has been a staunch critic of the ‘western’ medical system, argued that there was a “big difference between what I do and what the rest of the medical profession do”, saying that her belief in ‘western science’ was “completely wrong”.
“The reason why I am a doctor is that I am an optimist.
And I do believe in western medicine,” she said.”
I’m not a believer in all of it, I’m not against the Western Medicine.
But I believe in the fact that the theory of western medicine is a big lie.
It’s a lie.”
Her comments came in response to a recent article by Dr Vikas Rathore, who described the theory as a “sad, false, and dangerous lie”.
“Western medicine is not medicine.
It is a theory and a fad, a religion,” Rathore wrote.
“The theory is based on the idea that there are certain drugs that work on a specific part of the body, and they are able to help you get through life.”
They have no scientific basis, no evidence.
They are a superstition and an attempt to control the human mind.
“Bhatias claims that the idea of a Western medicine is “an attempt to change the way we see the world” as she claims that western medicine has “made people less intelligent, less tolerant of other cultures, less compassionate, less accepting of the suffering of others”.”
You’re either a patient or you’re a doctor.
Bhattas views on the Western medicine theory of anesthesia has been the subject of intense criticism on social media, with some users taking to social media to attack her for using the term in an article.”
They are not only a religious sect, but they are also a business.”

The former editor-at-large for the British Medical Bulletin, who was named the winner of the prestigious Royal Society’s 2013 Society of Anaesthetists award for “outstanding contributions to medicine and science”, is now one of the most outspoken critics of western medical science.
She has written about the “horrific” state of modern anaesthesia in the last three years, writing about the increasing prevalence of “super-invasive” procedures, as well as the “dangerous use of highly sophisticated equipment and instruments” and the “dangers of modern medicine”.
“It is so easy to say, ‘Well, if I’m in a bad situation, I can do this,’ but that’s not how the world is,” she wrote in an interview published in November.
“If I were a surgeon, I would never use anaesthesia, because I don’t know how it’s going to help me, because you can’t use it as a tool.
You can’t take it out of your hand and just cut yourself.”
In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Bhatias also claimed that western doctors were using a “giant tool” to diagnose diseases, adding that “they’re also using it to take away our life”.
“I think Western medicine has made people less tolerant and less compassionate,” she told The Hindu.
“There is no need for the Western medical community to be that compassionate because we’re not going to be in this world.”‘
Western Medicine’ is an oxymoron, she added.
The controversy surrounding Bhatas comments has not gone unnoticed by other anaestheists.
Dr Pankaj Kapoor, the first chief medical officer of the Indian anaesthetic profession, said that she “would not have done what she did” if she had known about the claims.
“This is a doctor of great integrity, she is not a liar, and she has done nothing wrong,” Kapoor told NDTV.
“There is a difference between the way I do the profession and the way that she does it.
I am proud of her.
But this is not the way of the profession.”
Dr Bhatya’s comments were met with widespread criticism, with many questioning her qualifications to be a doctor, and her apparent lack of experience in the field.
She had previously been a student of Dr K. Raghavan at Jawaharlal Nehru University in the US.
“She was a graduate of the American University of Health Sciences, and that’s the same university that has been accused of giving us false and unethical medical practices,” Dr P. Vaidya, chair of the Western Indian Medical Association, told The Hindustani
