Intelligent design theory is considered "pseudoscientific" or even "junk science." There is usually no place for it in a scientific discussion, and almost never in the raw, clinical coldness of a medical facility.
The phrase came from fundamentalist Christians who were working to circumvent the legal ruling that the theory of evolution could be taught as a scientific theory, while the creation story of the Book of Genesis could not be presented as a science teaching.
I'm a scientist, but I have always loved the phrase "intelligent design," because it so eloquently conveys the incredibly elegant reality of the patterns of Nature, including those that govern disease and healing. This phrase is much closer to the reality of the way the world works than the boring, mechanical concepts of "random mutation" and "natural selection."
Whether the God of Christianity or the non-God of mechanistic science was the creator of these beautifully-efficient patterns and governing laws does not change the truth: the system is intelligent. It's beyond intelligent, in fact; it's pure genius.
The Underlying Design, the Quintessence, or the Basic Meaning of Disease and Healing:
Every disease, discomfort, illness, or symptom is a significant and meaningful part of a special biological program of Nature. Each symptom of each disease makes total sense in the context of our ontogeny and our evolution.
Regardless of our religious beliefs, or lack thereof.
We are taught in school and by the society around us that everything in the whole universe tends toward disorder and that if we don't work at it, everything will fall apart. This is our misinterpretation, and this misinterpretation leads to a lot of suffering.
Why would God or Nature produce a world that is always just barely keeping itself from utter collapse?
Nature takes care of itself, with perfect efficiency - and with profound intelligence. Nothing in Nature is ever meaningless or "malignant." We are part of Nature, and therefore Nature takes care of us as it takes care of itself - with perfect efficiency and never a single molecule of meaningless waste.
Every conflict-shock that we experience that catches us off-guard triggers a special biological program of Nature that assists us in resolving the actual conflict situation.
Every disease - physiological or mental or emotional - can be seen as a meaningful, most efficient, completely appropriate, and temporary program of Nature. That's the quintessential meaning of the forces unleashed upon us as part of this vastly intelligent design.
Every program of Nature pulls us toward wholeness - health - never in the direction of deterioration. It is only conflict-shock experiences, unresolved, that pull us away from health. Nature's intelligent design immediately works to move us back toward wholeness.
