The old man was asked to what he attributed his long life. His answer? “I stayed away from doctors.”
As life expectancy falls in the U.S., that is something to consider.
Professional medicine can be life-saving in emergencies, but is questionable, useless, or lethal for an astonishing array of non-emergency diseases, disorders and conditions. A major reason for the catastrophe of modern medicine is the pharmaceutical industry, with its ubiquitous advertising and outrageous consumer prices. Those prices underwrite their generous donations to medical schools and then to underwrite dinners, seminars in attractive locales, speaking fees and other gifts to practicing physicians who have been carefully taught that drugs are the solution for every problem their patients’ present.
In order to keep the largess flowing, medical schools and participating doctors reciprocate by turning into pill-pushers for Big Pharma. It’s an unwritten part of the bargain.
Since the pharmaceutical industry also contributes heavily to the tax-payer owned FDA, almost any new drug can get approval, no matter how dangerous it is. If the FDA was working in the public interest, toxic drugs would be refused approval. Instead, the FDA designates lethal pharmaceuticals by slapping a ‘BLACK BOX’ warning on the packaging. Consumers are never warned when they are being prescribed a deadly drug, and if the medical staff hasn’t been paying attention, they don’t know it either.
And life expectancy falls.
We don’t have to be victims. For those of us who dare to think for ourselves, the alternative is clear and effective: well documented natural remedies.
1. Do you get migraines? If you take a FEVERFEW capsule every day, they will become a thing of the past. Feverfew is a plant (botanical) that is a cousin of the daisy family. You will think you’ve found magic; and you have.
2. Do you get muscle cramps? That’s because you need more VITAMIN E in your diet.
3. Much breast cancer therapy is a tragedy of misdiagnosis. A type of breast cancer known as ‘IN SITU’ is only found by mammogram, as has been known for years. It’s a tiny spec of cancer that usually goes nowhere, according to the AMA. Years ago it was recognized as a cancer that could be successfully handled by simply monitoring it. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation not required unless it progressed, which almost never happened and was not expected.
The saddest part of this story is the frequency with which medical guidelines for ‘IN SITU BREAST CANCER’ are ignored. Since the advent of these guidelines, thousands of women have been operated on and endured chemotherapy needlessly. What’s good for the surgeons’ and the hospitals’ bottom line comes at great cost to women, and unnecessary cost to the health care system.
4. BONIVA, PROLIA, and similar drugs promise stronger bones for older women. Their major side effect is barely mentioned in the ad’s litany of warnings: These drugs destroy the jaw bone and require massive surgery to restore the jaw and teeth. This problem has been known by the drug companies, the FDA, and doctors for years. The drug has continued to be prescribed by millions of doctors for millions of women. The women who end up requiring jaw reconstruction are not notified by their complicit prescribing physicians or their complicit surgeons that their problem was the result of a prescribed drug. In their ignorance they go on taking it, and even wish they’d taken more of it.
These drugs are advertised as being required ‘only every six months’. Remember that any drug’s side effects last as long as the drug does.
5. Do you bruise easily? Catch colds or the flu often? That’s because you need more VITAMIN C, which will also protect you from colds, the flu and who knows what else. Just like Linus Pauling, MD, said, and for which the medical establishment roundly denounced him, vitamin C, taken in large enough doses, is a safe miracle drug. An overdose of vitamin C, meaning more than our body can handle, will give a case of diarrhea. That’s all. It’s never life threatening.
Vitamin C works its magic by protecting the cells of the body from infiltration by bad actors. Anyone can likely take a minimum of 1 gram (1000 mg) a day with nothing but good effect.
High dose Vitamin C, with Vitamin D, is finally acknowledged as a successful treatment for Covid.
6. GARLIC is a suburb antibiotic, blood thinner and more . Now that penicillin and other routine antibiotics have lost their effectiveness due to over use, garlic never fails. And doctors never prescribe it, maybe because they don’t know.
7. GINGER is one of several herbs that is not only known to combat inflammation but is also an antispasmodic, recognized in ancient and nontraditional healing but never by modern mainstream doctors. It can cure the hiccups and other spastic conditions. Its been known to eliminate all symptoms of asthma.
8. Women are typically prescribed estrogen for symptoms of menopause, despite the fact that artificial estrogen is known as a cause of breast cancer. There is a natural ingredient that will eliminate those symptoms without the threat of death or any other side effects: BLACK COHOSH, taken in capsule form daily, will solve all problems connected with menopause.
9. Many chronic, unsolvable , conditions are the result of unrecognized ALLERGIES. Since doctors, including allergists, are unlikely to be able to help sort it out, we are on our own. But we can do it, as many others have. See other articles on this site.
10. A great many horrendous chronic conditions are the result of food sensitivities, which no doctor will suspect. We are on our own here also. For help, see other articles on this site.
11. Many deaths are being attributed now to ‘complications of Covid’. In other words, the hospital wants to hide the fact that the person did not die from Covid. It means the hospital used drugs or methods, like ventilators, that killed. When we are told that a person died of ‘complications’ it virtually always means that modern medicine killed him.
12. Many people have been diagnosed with HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. Recently the ideal blood pressure in the U.S. was downgraded to 120/80, from 140.90. That had the effect of opening up a vast new market for drugs. Although there is constant scare talk about the dangers of HBP, have you ever seen statistics documenting that? European doctors rejected the new CDC guidelines. They consider a blood pressure of 150/90 perfectly acceptable. And the blood pressure drugs have life-altering side effects. It’s no wonder that so many people refuse to take them.
I’ve only scratched the surface of highly effective natural remedies. What we should know is that we are not at the mercy of Big Pharma and other actors in the Deep State. Dr.Mercola.com is a valuable reference.
We do not have to contribute to the falling life expectancy.
To extend our lives, we need to stop expecting Big Medicine to solve our problems. We can do it ourselves, and live healthy lives longer.
