In western medicine, doctors are taught how to treat the symptom, not find the root of the cause. You get eczema on your face? Oh here, take this steroid cream (which will work temporarily and eventually cause harm to your skin) You have anxiety? Here, take some meds. Instead of trying to find the root cause of it. Your average doctor is practically the last person who will give you nutrition advice, just take these pills and go off!
When it comes to advanced shit like surgeries, we are the best but our philosphy on healing our body is just crap.

It made everything worse. I cured it years later by fixing my diet, lowering my salt intake and cleaning my system from the inside out.

Honestly, I agree. Preventative medicine is far more effective but you can never find that at an allopathic doctor's office.
My grandmother died of congestive heart failure. She had rheumatic fever as a child, which damaged her mitral valve. She had an artificial valve placed when she was in her 30s. When she was in her 50s, this valve started to fail. She went to the doctor complaining of having difficulty breathing. As she was asthmatic, the doctor prescribed a different steroid. Unsurprisingly, this didn't help because it was her heart and not her lungs that was the issue.
It wasn't until she was in cardiac and respiratory distress and on a ventilator that anyone thought to check her heart. Unsurprisingly again, it was too late.0
