Extending Your Life Expectancy: DIY (Do It Yourself)

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.

For example:

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 seldom happened and was not expected.

The sad 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 the 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, see the sidebar on this site, 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.

As the old man said, “I stayed away from doctors.”

Death From Complications

Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey has died from what was reported as ‘complications of rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis and pneumonia.’

Huh?  There is no mortality code called ‘complications’ in the recently updated International Classification of Disease, which lists all causes of death.

Pneumonia may have been present but it didn’t kill Mr. Frey. If it had, it would be listed first.

Nor were rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis the killers. Rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis are autoimmune conditions caused by an immune system gone awry. Instead of performing its assigned job and protecting us from bacteria, viruses and other hazards, the immune system goes rogue and attacks. Unhappy conditions as they are, rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis are not diseases, they are disorders, like Downs Syndrome or autism, and kill no one.

So why did Glenn Frey die?

With amazing frequency, obituaries identify unexplained ‘complications’ as the cause of death. Loosely translated, that generally means that the people who know don’t want you to.

There are good reasons for that. So unsafe is the entire medical industry that the word ‘complications’ is often a synonym for injury or death caused by incompetence, malpractice or pharmaceuticals. Although the number of deaths due to medical error has been estimated at 440,000, which would make it the third leading cause of death in the U.S, several in-depth reviews of medical records have shown that number to be woefully under reported. That’s because

– Some medical errors don’t come to light until an autopsy
– Medical records routinely fail to show all adverse drug events
– Physicians often refuse to report medical harm done to their patients

Medical errors are based only on hospital records, which means that injury or death occurring once the patient has left the hospital is not included in the figures.   Also, all harm that does not cause death, estimated at 10 to 20 times the  number of deaths, is ignored in the official figures.  Hundreds of thousands of former patients live daily with the life-dimming consequences of our medical system and their misplaced faith in the American medical establishment.

The truth is that medical injuries are probably the leading cause of death in the U.S. That would help to explain why the average healthy life span of Americans is stagnating while other Western countries continue to show advances.

Studies done by the Department of Health and Human Services indicate that American citizens pay $88 billion every year in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements to patch up the results of medical malfeasance. Other studies have estimated the total cost of medical error at 10% of total health care spending, or roughly $300 billion.

Hospital infections are among the most easily prevented injuries to patients, since they require little more than hand washing and sterile equipment. They are also the most common and alone raise the cost of hospitalization by as much as 50%.

Although many hospitals would prefer you to believe that medical harm is just the cost of doing business, it is not. There are hospitals that have made major strides in ensuring the safety of their patients.
So maybe it’s time for someone to go off the rails of political correctness and say it: The prevalence of infections and other in- hospital errors is a silent testament to the indifference and apathy of too many hospitals and medical staff. The rise in deadly strains of bacteria, like MRSA and C Diff, is a silent testament to the consequences of their apathy.

It appears that most hospitals are so unsafe that they should be closed for the protection of the public, as restaurants may be.

So what killed Glenn Frey? He had rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis, two autoimmune conditions treated with a class of drug called TNF (tumor necrosis factor) inhibitors which include Embrel, Humira, and numerous others. Those drugs are heavily advertised for an increasing number of conditions related to immune system dysfunction.

If a disorder is caused by the action of the immune system, we feel much better if we disable it. And that’s what these drugs do. But there is a huge price to pay for weakening the immune system. Without an immune system a person has no resistance to cancer or opportunistic infections like pneumonia.

The ‘complication’ causing Glenn Frey’s death was the prescription drugs that had been prescribed for his autoimmune conditions. There are natural, magical, alternatives that he never heard about from his doctors.  It didn’t have to happen.
