Extending Your Life Expectancy: DIY (Do It Yourself)

By Cameron Salisbury

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 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.

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

Extending Your Life Expectancy – Allergies

I talked to her mother at the local coffee shop, as she waited for her 20-year old-daughter to finish her 8th surgery for a condition none of her doctors had been able to identify. The girl was always sick, she said, and the surgeries didn’t seem to help. Her parents were scared to death she’d die before anyone figured it out.

She was eventually found to be sensitive to the perfumes in virtually everything she touched – deodorants, soap, shampoo, cleaning supplies.

I met her in a class one night. She couldn’t talk without her vocal cords going into a spasm, which meant she was without a voice. Her doctors said it was the most unusual case they’d seen and, over and over, recommended surgery. She’d had 6 surgeries so far and was scheduled for another.

She finally found that a common anti-spasmodic – ordinary ginger- ended her problem without actually identifying it.

He lost his voice suddenly one day. The doctors said his vocal cords looked fine. They didn’t know what happened or how to fix it. He was a school teacher.

His problem ended when his wife had a sudden insight and told him to stop taking the prescription statin. His life returned to normal within days.

Each of these had undiagnosed allergic reactions to a constant irritant that no one suspected. Once they figured out the allergy and began avoiding the source, their health returned. To a person, their doctors refused to believe the latest surgery or pharmaceutical had not been responsible for their return to health. None of them had ever heard of allergies causing such a problem. All of these one-time patients had their health back along with a newfound disregard for ‘experts’, and a new respect for the power their own human body, as well as a new respect for ancient remedies.

The medical profession seems to believe allergies begin and end with pollen or poison ivy, including the allergist physicians who should know better. The truth is that you can be allergic to anything. Food, perfumes, plants, things you touch, things you smell, and those allergies can impact your body and your life in limitless ways. Horrifically, they can also cause sudden death due to anaphylaxis, a sudden, violent allergic reaction that causes all organs in the body to shut down simultaneously.

The one medical guarantee is that doctors won’t understand any of it. With their medical education and virtually all articles in their professional journals subsidized by Big Pharma, they are taught believe that pills are the one hope for your health.

Allergies have their own ways of showing up, and when your symptoms don’t fit into any of a doctor’s diagnostic boxes, they will bend the corners of your ailment until they fit into a familiar surgical or pharmaceutical category. Then, they can solve your problem by recommending a surgery or a drug. Drug companies reward doctors for prescribing their costly, deadly, products.

With a little luck, if you survive one physician’s toxic and useless remedies, you will live to repeat the process with the next physician. Sooner or later, if you survive, you will take control of your own health. You will begin checking natural remedies on the internet, trying them out, and being flabbergasted at the magic they can work, almost free of charge and rarely at a threat to your life.

For example: Ginger, standard spice rack ginger, is a very effective anti-spasmodic. That means that it is a risk-free remedy for asthma, as well as hiccups. It means you don’t need to take cortisone with it’s deadly side effects to get relief.

Suffer from migraines? No need to risk your life taking expensive, heart-stopping, heavily advertised drugs. The botanical ‘feverfew’, available in the vitamin aisle, taken daily, will get rid of them for good.

Got nail biters in the family? They need much more vitamin B and magnesium than they’re getting.

Bruise easily? Not if you’re taking enough vitamin C, which can also ward off the common cold and who knows what other ailments.

As traditional antibiotics lose their effectiveness due to over prescribing, there is a natural antibiotic with nearly magical powers: Garlic. Taken in high doses, it can kill off numerous germs with no threat to your life or wallet.

Please note that nothing I’ve mentioned here is effective in one small dose, the kind you get in multivitamins. For therapeutic benefit, the vitamin or biologic has to be taken daily in doses high enough to be healing. There is a danger in extremely high doses of the fat soluble vitamins, A, E, and D. Those vitamins are not sold in health-threatening doses.

The vitamins that are not fat-soluble, B and C, are water-soluble. That means that they wash harmlessly out of your system every day in your urine.

There is a side effect to extremely high dose vitamin C. It causes diarrhea when the body has more than it can handle. That’s all. It’s not going to kill you and you can solve the problem by taking a little less. That doesn’t sound like the dangers advertised for pharmaceuticals, does it?

No discussion of allergies would be complete without acknowledging some very serious, mostly hidden, food allergens

If you feel miserable almost every day and you’ve ruled out most other things chances are you are have problems with the common allergen soy, which is almost always genetically modified.

Soy, like corn, is a crop subsidized by the government. Because farmers know that planting soy will always be profitable, they fill their fields with it. They plant much more than can be exported or used efficiently here at home. The solution to prevent big surpluses? Cut the price domestically and sell it to every food manufacturer. Because of it’s low cost, food processors are happy to comply and add it to everything possible. It’s hard to find a bakery product that doesn’t contain soy as do many other products. Would you ever suspect that many brands of ice cream are similarly contaminated? It’s everywhere. If you suspect a soy allergy, you should get used to reading food labels.

There are new, cost saving ingredients that appear constantly. One is malted barley flour. It’s generally a new addition to baked goods and is not included in some organic products. Be aware of its allergenic potential.

Allergies have the potential to do everything from limiting life to killing. A great many deaths are attributed to heart attacks but occur in people who have no heart disease. Are those deaths a testament to the power of allergies?

Allergies are entirely individual and identifying them is also individual. No one can do it for you, which is OK since you know that your health is your responsibility.

A Diet for Rheumatoid Arthritis: The 3-Day Phenomenon

As we struggle with swollen joints, fatigue, doctor’s appointments, prescriptions, and trying to process more information than we ever wanted about Rheumatoid Arthritis, it’s nearly impossible to believe that we can be well and healthy again in less than a week.

But it is true.

There is a huge amount of scientific evidence going back decades, as well as innumerable personal stories indicating that Rheumatoid Arthritis is linked directly to foods that our immune systems have come to believe are toxins.

Alas! Although dietary changes will eliminate all symptoms of RA, there is no magic bullet. Each person has to discover his or her own foods to avoid.

Every person’s life experiences and resulting physiology are individually unique, as are the dietary triggers for inflammation, which is what causes the pain, joint swelling and destruction of Rheumatoid Arthritis. It is also the underlying condition in many other disorders. Our immune systems are, for reasons yet unknown, miraculously exclusive to each of us and each person has to learn for him/her self what their own personal triggers are.

How to learn? That part is fairly simple.
