WHAT ‘IF’ YOU HAVE A CONDITION THAT IS GETTING WORSE AND SEEMS HOPELESS? COULD IT BE IATROGENIC (DOCTOR CAUSED)?

What if… just what if… you were given a wrong diagnosis? Did you know that in a shocking study, it was found to be that 88% of the time, second opinions rarely agree with your first diagnosis?  Were you also aware of the fact that If you are a female, statistics reveal that you your chances of being misdiagnosed are greater than a male. What if you even got several 2nd opinions that agreed or disagreed with your original diagnosis? What if the meds you were given have side effects that have been attributed to your diagnosis, yet were actually caused by the medications or treatment you were given? What if those side effects caused even more problems that were also blamed on that diagnosis and now you are taking more medications and going through more tests… perhaps even getting treatments that don’t seem to be making you any better? You’re getting worse and getting worse fast. Now, you have that original and potentially wrong diagnosis plus have been given an iatrogenic (doctor caused) disorder by ‘polypharamacy’. Polypharmacy means a disorder caused by too many drugs negatively interacting by causing too many additional conditions that were never there in the first place. Perhaps all of this is upsetting to you and you have revealed that upset to your doctor.  Chances are that your doctor will now treat you for secondary depression, anxiety, insomnia or even psychosis, from your ‘reaction’ to all that is supposedly wrong with you.  Now what? M

Have you ever considered that, maybe, just maybe, nothing is wrong with you at all and that whatever condition you may have had would have  possibly run it’s course on it’s own or could have been easily treated with a natural alternative method?  Could you have possibly been sucked into the vortex of iatrogenic harm (harm by doctors)? Have you been misdiagnosed and now this misdiagnosis has possibly snowballed you into hell where there are no answers… nothing makes sense even to your doctors… and you are now being treated only symptomatically with drugs that are making you worse?  Could you now be suffering from something ‘doctor caused’ – aka an Iatrogenic disorder?

When you are sick, it is not always easy to find the right path forward. When your regular health care provider recommends surgery or a major treatment, it might be a good idea to get a second opinion after the Mayo Clinic reported that your doctor is wrong 88 percent of the time.

Even though the path to becoming a physician is long, with four years of college to get a bachelor’s degree, another four years of medical school, and three to seven more years of residency and fellowship training, experienced and well-trained doctors may still not get your diagnosis right. A second opinion may give you not only peace of mind, but also a second chance at survival.

When it comes to your health, two brains work better than one

The Mayo Clinic researchers examined 286 patient records of individuals who had decided to consult the Mayo Clinic’s General Internal Medicine Division in Rochester for a second opinion between 2009 and 2010. The group consisted of patients referred by nurse practitioners and physician assistants, along with an equal number of randomly selected physician referrals.

To determine the extent of diagnostic errors, the team compared the referring diagnosis to the final diagnosis. The researchers found that only 12 percent of patients received a correct first diagnosis, while nearly nine out of ten people (or 88 percent) who go for a second opinion, walk away with a refined or entirely new diagnosis from what they were first told. In 21 percent of all analyzed cases, the diagnosis was completely different than the first one, while 66 percent of patients walked away with a redefined diagnosis.

“Effective and efficient treatment depends on the right diagnosis. Knowing that more than 1 out of every 5 referral patients may be completely [and] incorrectly diagnosed is troubling — not only because of the safety risks for these patients prior to correct diagnosis, but also because of the patients we assume are not being referred at all,” said lead researcher James Naessens, Sc.D., a health care policy researcher at Mayo Clinic, in a statement.

Medical errors, now the leading cause of death in the US

According to a controversial study from Johns Hopkins University, medical errors, including misdiagnosis, are the leading cause of death in American hospitals. ProPublica, however, noted that this number might be higher since doctors don’t list medical errors on the death certificate, so the actual number of fatalities might be inaccurate.

With thousands of diseases, some with similar symptoms, it is not always easy to get a straightforward diagnosis from the first doctor’s visit, hence why a second opinion is so crucial to one’s health and survival. If we can learn anything from the Mayo Clinic’s study, then it is the fact that medical practices and diagnosis should be a more collaborative process. Doctors and other health care providers should work more closely together to make sure patients get the right diagnosis and proper treatment as fast as possible. 

Despite the pervasiveness of diagnostic errors, which could be fatal, little attention has been given to improving the system of referrals. Dr. Naessens stated that referrals to advanced specialty care for undifferentiated problems are an essential component of patient care. While getting a second opinion might push the diagnostic costs up, a misdiagnosis could lead to delays in treatments and complications, which may result in the death of a patient.

Dr. Naessens, however, is pleased to see that the National Academy of Medicine is taking steps to improve diagnostic processes and error reduction. They called for dedicated federal funding and plan to further investigate the occurrence of diagnostic mistakes and find new ways to improve the process.

Heroin & Cocaine VS Rx Drugs From Your Doctor. Same or Different?

Today, I want to show you how accepting those dangerous prescriptions from your doctor is causing you to be equal to a heroin/cocaine abuser. Once you know that your doctor is giving you dangerous medications, it is up to you to make a change in your life or suffer torment, withdrawal, organ failure, seizures, stroke, heart attack and an early death.

We all know that when a person struts down to his or her drug dealer, we know that they’re willingly, knowingly and purposely after a high and are bound and determined to get it.  We also know that they are fully aware that if they get caught using, they will spend some time in  jail. Another known factor is that – most of the time – people sell their bodies in order to get that high because, without it, they will get violently sick and possibly die from withdrawal.  Another given is that they are knowingly risking their lives every single time they use.  Overdose, as everyone knows, is all too common.

So, what about Rx drugs that your doctor gives you?

  • More people die from doctors’ prescription drugs than do people using Heroin and Cocaine combined.
  • Prescription drugs such as Opiates, Benzodiazepines, Hypnotics (sleeping pills) and Stimulants (just to name a few categories) should NEVER be prescribed for more than 3 days – if at all. Antidepressants, antipsychotics and other psychotropic drugs should NEVER be prescribed by anyone other than a board certified psychiatrist; even then, you must consider whether or not this person needs to be hospitalized and evaluated in a mental health unit as these drugs cause suicidal and homicidal ideations.
  • Doctors that offer you these drugs, outside of a hospital facility, and for more than 3 days, are basically drug dealers who wear white coats.

Do the patients who use Rx drugs seek after the same high as street drug users do?

  • Absolutely YES!  The addictive Rx drugs given to you by your doctor do not keep their intensity. In other words, the dose you take today will not have the same effect on you when you continue to take it for 2 weeks. That means that your doctor will most likely increase the dose or add another drug to potentiate (make stronger) it’s effect.  As a matter of fact, many doctors, in order to keep you addicted, will add certain specific other drugs that will give give their patients the equivalent of a very potent ‘heroin high’.
  • Dosages are raised by doctors or additional drugs are added because every few weeks, the effect and euphoria (or high) of these drugs dissipates.  Keep in mind that these drugs, while becoming less effective, are stored in the body’s vital organs. This is the reason people ‘accidentally’ overdose and never see it coming.

Is it possible that Rx drug users could end up doing prison time or have to sell their bodies?

  • Yes!  It happens every day of the week. Why, you ask?  The reason is that laws are getting tighter and doctors are being squeezed not to prescribe these types of drugs… especially Opiate painkillers.  These days they can face professional discipline for misconduct, malpractice suits for iatrogenic addiction and death, and criminal criminal charges. So, what do the people do who are on these drugs and now suffer withdrawal? They hit the streets and buy heroin!  Heroin is an opiate. Whether they are 12 or 90, they will start shooting up because the withdrawal is unbearable and they don’t want to be hospitalized for 14 days to detox. As we know, this is illegal.  Being illegal, these people who have graduated from pills to heroin are now conducting themselves as other heroin abusers do, so they easily can and do end up with criminal charges.

What about withdrawal and accidental overdose?  My doctor would never put me on drugs that would cause harm to me!

  • Think again, my friends!  Remember that nasty thing called ‘GREED’?  Greed causes those who have the love of money to do crazy things.  Just because some people have an MD, DO, PA, or NP after their names doesn’t mean they don’t or can’t love money!  People who love money look for ways to make that money in a cushy, easy way.  What’s easier than addicting patients to drugs?  State laws mandate that these patients MUST come into the medical office monthly in order to get more pills. Insurances pay upward of $880 per 5 minute visit for the patient to get a new Rx. Multiply that by the average number of patients doctors have in the US per month.  I’m not going to figure out the statistics for you… you can google that if you want; however, what I will tell you is that in 2012 (the most recent statistics available form the CDC), 259,000,000 (million) prescriptions were written for just Opioids alone!!!!!!!!!  You do the math on how lucrative it is for doctors to prescribe these drugs and how they only have to spend 5 minutes with a patient to make upwards of $880.00 per month per patient. Don’t you wonder how your monster doctor affords all of those luxury vacations… new cars… huge houses (and multiple homes)… designer clothes… private schools… etc? I guess you’ve been reading my words here because you guessed it… it’s by prescribing addictive and mind altering drugs!  Voila!  One American dies every 19 minutes here in the US from a prescription overdose from addictive drugs prescribed by their doctor.  IATROGENIC DEATH is now the #1 cause of accidental death in America.  To me, it’s no accident when doctors know what these drugs do and prescribe them anyway. Even after a patient has experienced a massive overdose, their doctor will prescribe them to that same patient again when they get home from the hospital. That’s egregious since the chance of overdose is GREATER after an overdose has already occurred. For many, it only takes just one pill!!!

Motto of my post today?  NEVER TRUST YOUR DOCTOR!  

  • Do the research – Look up the drugs yourself and ask your pharmacist for a package insert so that you can see all facts about the drugs.
  • ask questions of pharmacists, naturopaths, google ‘dangers of (name of drug)’ and see what others have experienced and what remains hidden from patients.
  • allow a window of time before accepting any Rx or procedure in order to get other opinions from doctors who are naturopaths.
  • *******NEVER start with these drugs and you’ll never get addicted, you’ll never get dead before your time, and you’ll never suffer the evil ravages of taking them.
  • Look for an MD or DO who is a Naturopath… seek natural alternatives.
  • For pain, google LDN… an awesome way to control pain, many diseases and helps you sleep.  It doesn’t ’cause’ anything in your body… it enables your body to heal itself.

Ninety-Nine Out of 100 People Do NOT Need Statin Drugs! DOCUMENTED DANGERS SPELLED OUT HERE!

Tens of millions of Americans are taking cholesterol-lowering drugs—mostly statins—and some “experts” claim that many millions more should be taking them. I couldn’t disagree more.

Statins are HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, that is, they act by blocking the enzyme in your liver that is responsible for making cholesterol (HMG-CoA reductase).

The fact that statin drugs cause side effects is well established—there are now 900 studies proving their adverse effects, which run the gamut from muscle problems to increased cancer risk. For starters, reported side effects include (to just name a few):

  • Muscle problems, polyneuropathy (nerve damage in the hands and feet), and rhabdomyolysis (a serious degenerative muscle tissue condition) 
  • Anemia
  • Acidosis
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Immune depression
  • Cataracts
  • Pancreas or liver dysfunction, including a potential increase in liver enzymes
  • Memory loss

Muscle problems are the best known of statin drugs’ adverse side effects, but cognitive problems and memory loss are also widely reported. A spectrum of other problems, ranging from blood glucose elevations to tendon problems, can also occur. There is evidence that taking statins may even increase your risk for Lou Gehrig’s disease, diabetes, and even cancer. Statins currently available on the U.S. market include :

  • Advicor (lovastatin with niacin) – Abbott
  • Crestor (rosuvastatin) – AstraZeneca
  • Mevacor (lovastatin) – Merck Simcor (niacin / imvastatin) – Abbott
  • Altoprev (lovastatin) – Shionogi Pharma
  • Lescol (fluvastatin) – Novartis
  • Pravachol (pravastatin) – Bristol-Myers Squibb
  • Zocor (simvastatin) – Merck
  • Caduet [atorvastatin with amlodipine (Norvasc)] – Pfizer
  • Lipitor (atorvastatin) – Pfizer
  • Vytorin (ezetimibe/simvastatin) – Merck/Schering-Plough

Statin Drugs: A Surprising Cause of Diabetes

Statins have been shown to increase your risk of diabetes through a few different mechanisms. The most important one is that they increase insulin resistance, which can be extremely harmful to your health. Increased insulin resistance contributes to chronic inflammation in your body, and inflammation is the hallmark of most diseases. In fact, increased insulin resistance can lead to heart disease, which, ironically, is the primary reason for taking a cholesterol-reducing drug in the first place! It can also promote belly fat, high blood pressure, heart attacks, chronic fatigue, thyroid disruption, and diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and cancer.

Secondly, statins increase your diabetes risk by actually raising your blood sugar. When you eat a meal that contains starches and sugar, some of the excess sugar goes to your liver, which then stores it away as cholesterol and triglycerides. Statins work by preventing your liver from making cholesterol. As a result, your liver returns the sugar to your bloodstream, which raises your blood sugar levels.

Now, it’s important to realize that drug-induced diabetes and genuine type 2 diabetes are not necessarily identical.

If you’re on a statin drug and find that your blood glucose is elevated, it’s possible that what you have is just hyperglycemia—a side effect, and the result of your medication. Unfortunately, many doctors will at that point mistakenly diagnose you with “type 2 diabetes,” and possibly prescribe another drug, when all you may need to do is simply discontinue the statin in order for your blood glucose levels to revert back to normal. So if friends or loved ones you know are on a statin (and one in four Americans over 45 are) and they are told they have diabetes, please do them a favor and tell them about the information in this article.

Major Statin Drug Study Found to Be Flawed

A study known as the JUPITER trial initially suggested cholesterol-lowering statin drugs might prevent heart-related death in many more people than just those with high cholesterol. But two years after its publication in 2008, researchers came out saying the JUPITER results are flawed — and that they do not support the benefits initially reported. Not only is there no “striking decrease in coronary heart disease complications,” but a more recent report has also called into question drug companies’ involvement in such trials.

According to a report by ABC News2 :

“… major discrepancies exists between the significant reductions in nonfatal stroke and heart attacks reported in the JUPITER trial and what has been found in other research … ‘The JUPITER data set appears biased,’ [the researchers] wrote in conclusion.”

If You Take Statins, You MUST Take CoQ10

Statins deplete your body of CoQ10, which can have devastating results. If you take statin drugs without taking CoQ10, your health is at serious risk. Unfortunately, this describes the majority of people who take them in the United States. CoQ10 is a cofactor (co-enzyme) that is essential for the creation of ATP molecules, which you need for cellular energy production. Organs such as your heart have higher energy requirements, and therefore require more CoQ10 to function properly. Produced mainly in your liver, it also plays a role in maintaining blood glucose.

Physicians rarely inform people of this risk and only occasionally advise them to take a CoQ10 supplement. As your body gets more and more depleted of CoQ10, you may suffer from fatigue, muscle weakness and soreness, and eventually heart failure.

Coenzyme Q10 is also very important in the process of neutralizing free radicals. So when your CoQ10 is depleted, you enter a vicious cycle of increased free radicals, loss of cellular energy, and damaged mitochondrial DNA. If you decide to take a CoQ10 supplement and are over the age of 40, it is important to choose the reduced version, called ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is a FAR more effective form—I personally take it daily for its many far-ranging benefits. As for dosage, Dr. Graveline, a family doctor and former astronaut, made the following recommendation in a previous interview on statins and CoQ10:

  • If you have symptoms of statin damage such as muscle pain, take anywhere from 200 to 500 mg
  • If you just want to use it preventively, 200 mg or less should be sufficient

Statins Impair Numerous Biological Functions

Statin drugs also interfere with other biological functions, including an early step in the mevalonate pathway, which is the central pathway for the steroid management in your body. Products of this pathway that are negatively affected by statins include:

  • All your sex hormones
  • Cortisone
  • The dolichols, which are involved in keeping the membranes inside your cells healthy
  • All sterols, including cholesterol and vitamin D (which is similar to cholesterol and is produced from cholesterol in your skin)
  • It’s still uncertain whether statins actually deplete your body of vitamin D, but they do reduce your body’s natural ability to create active vitamin D (1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol). This is the natural outcome of the drug’s cholesterol-reducing ability, because you need cholesterol to make vitamin D! It’s the raw material your body uses for vitamin D conversion after you’ve exposed your skin to sunlight. It’s also well-documented that vitamin D improves insulin resistance, so needless to say, when you take a statin drug, you forfeit this ‘built-in’ health-promoting mechanism, which is yet another clue as to how statins can cause diabetes.

Ninety-Nine Out of 100 People Do Not Need Statin Drugs

That these drugs have proliferated the market the way they have is a testimony to the power of marketing, corruption and corporate greed, because the odds are very high— greater than 100 to 1—that if you’re taking a statin, you don’t really need it. The ONLY subgroup that might benefit are those born with a genetic defect called familial hypercholesterolemia, as this makes them resistant to traditional measures of normalizing cholesterol.

And, even more importantly, cholesterol is NOT the cause of heart disease.

If your physician is urging you to check your total cholesterol, then you should know that this test will tell you virtually nothing about your risk of heart disease, unless it is 330 or higher. HDL percentage is a far more potent indicator for heart disease risk. Here are the two ratios you should pay attention to:

  • HDL/Total Cholesterol Ratio: Should ideally be above 24 percent. If below 10 percent, you have a significantly elevated risk for heart disease.
  • Triglyceride/HDL Ratio: Should be below 2.
    I have seen a number of people with total cholesterol levels over 250 who were actually at low risk for heart disease due to their elevated HDL levels. Conversely, I have seen many people with cholesterol levels under 200 who had a very high risk of heart disease, based on their low HDL. Your body NEEDS cholesterol—it is important in the production of cell membranes, hormones, vitamin D, and bile acids that help you to digest fat. Cholesterol also helps your brain form memories and is vital to your neurological function. There is also strong evidence that having too little cholesterol INCREASES your risk for cancer, memory loss, Parkinson’s disease, hormonal imbalances, stroke, depression, suicide, and violent behavior.

Statins Should NEVER Be Used By Pregnant Women

One in four Americans over the age of 45 is now taking these drugs, and few are properly warned about the related health risks. Part of the problem is that many doctors are not even aware of all the risks. A study published last spring highlighted this dilemma.

Most disturbingly, the researchers found that physicians were lacking in awareness of the teratogenic risks3 (ability to cause fetal malformations) of statins and other cardiovascular drugs they prescribed for their pregnant patients. The study followed an earlier report, which had concluded statins should be avoided in early pregnancy due to their teratogenic capability4. An even earlier 2003 study5 had already established that cholesterol plays an essential role in embryonic development, and that statins could play a part in embryonic mutations or even death…

Indeed, it’s difficult to look at these facts and not reach the conclusion that the pharmaceutical industry is quite willing to sacrifice human lives for profit. Statins are in fact classified as a “pregnancy Category X medication.” Meaning, it causes serious birth defects, and should NEVER be used by a woman who is pregnant or planning a pregnancy.

Parents Beware: Outrageous Push to Put Kids on Statin Drugs!

In a bold attempt to increase profits before the patent runs out, Pfizer has introduced a chewable kid-friendly version of Lipitor. Its US patent for Lipitor expired in November 2011, and seeking to boost sales of the drug, children have become the new target market, and the conventional medical establishment is more than happy to oblige.

Researchers and many doctors are now calling for universal school screening of children to check for high cholesterol to find those “in need of treatment.” In addition, older siblings, parents, and other family members might be prompted to get screened as well, the researchers say, which would uncover additional, previously undiagnosed adults in need of the drug.

This is clearly NOT the way to improve public health. On the contrary, it could produce a new, massive wave of extremely dire health consequences in just a few years’ time.

So rather than improving school lunches, which would cost about a dollar a day per child, they’d rather “invest” ten times that for tests and drugs that in no way, shape, or form address the root cause, which is an improper, unhealthy diet! All they’re doing is allowing all the industries to maintain or increase their profits: Big Pharma, Big Sugar, Big Corn and the processed food industry.

Who pays? You and your children!  And in far more ways that one!

Optimizing Your Cholesterol Levels, Naturally

There’s really no reason to take statins and suffer the damaging health effects from these dangerous drugs. The fact is that 75 percent of your cholesterol is produced by your liver, which is influenced by your insulin levels. Therefore, if you optimize your insulin levels, you will automatically optimize your cholesterol. It follows, then, that my primary recommendations for safely regulating your cholesterol have to do with modifying your diet and lifestyle:

Optimize your vitamin D levels. Research by Dr. Stephanie Seneff has shed additional light on the extreme importance of appropriate sun exposure for normalizing your cholesterol levels and preventing heart disease. For more information, please see this previous interview.

  • Reduce, with the plan of eliminating, grains and sugars in your diet. Ideally, you’ll also want to consume a good portion of your food raw.
  • Make sure you are getting plenty of high-quality, animal-based omega-3 fats, such as krill oil.
  • Other heart-healthy foods include olive oil, coconut and coconut oil, organic raw dairy products and eggs, avocados, raw nuts and seeds, and organic grass-fed meats as appropriate for your nutritional type.
  • Exercise daily. Make sure you incorporate Peak Fitness exercises, which also optimizes your human growth hormone (HGH) production and LOSE WEIGHT.
  • Address your emotional challenges.
  • Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol excessively.
  • Be sure to get plenty of good, restorative sleep.

Unlike statin drugs, which lower your cholesterol at the expense of your health, these lifestyle strategies represent a holistic approach that will benefit your overall health—which includes a healthy cardiovascular system.

The Baycol Statin Recall and Safety Issue:

In August 2001, Bayer AG, the maker of Baycol (cerivastatin), a popular cholesterol-lowering drug used by about 700,000 Americans, pulled the medicine off the market after 31 people died from severe muscle breakdown, a well-recognized side effect of cholesterol-lowering drugs.

Lipitor Tied to Liver, Kidney Injury, as Well as Muscle Damage

It seems that Baycol is not alone among cholesterol lowering drugs in posing serious dangers to the public. A number of legal actions are also being pursued against Pfizer Inc., the manufacturer of the Lipitor.

Excerpts from Public Citizen’s Health Research Group’s Petition to Require a Box Warning on All HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors (“Statins”):

” … Public Citizen, representing 135,000 consumers nationwide, hereby petitions the FDA pursuant to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act 21, U.S.C. Section 355(e)(3), and C.F.R. 10.30, to add a black box warning and additional consistent bolded warnings about this serious problem to the label of all statins marketed in the United States.”

“Doctors and the public must be warned to immediately discontinue use of statin drugs at the onset of muscle pain, muscle tenderness, muscle weakness or tiredness.”

“Prompt cessation of the use of statins at the first sign of muscle pain, muscle tenderness, muscle weakness or tiredness and prompt evaluation by a physician including a blood test for creatine phosphokinase (a measure of muscle destruction) may avoid the progression to more extensive muscle damage, rhabdomyolysis and death.”

“Rhabdomyolysis has been reported with all statins currently marketed in the United States.”

I’m here to protect you from someone you never thought would try to harm you!

If you ever go to a doctor or hospital, YOU need to read every word I have to say. I have to tell you that my message hasn’t made me popular because people don’t want to hear bad things about those in whom they have placed their trust.  There’s a flippant word out these days that people trash you with if they don’t want to hear the cold hard facts of life. That word is ‘negativity’.  They take healthy and necessary ‘warnings’ as though those warnings were bullets to their hearts.  Typically, one of the anti-negativity cultists would say, “if you’re going to tell me something negative, please don’t”.  HUH?  If I know something that will harm and kill you, a loved one or a friend, you had better believe I’m not going to keep it a secret!  If you have a problem hearing the truth, then maybe you need some talk therapy to find out why.  Truth saves lives.  What I have to tell you isn’t pretty, but it’s necessary for you to know. So, if you don’t like me, it’s okay.  I only ask that you tuck away what I’m going to tell you until the day when you need the information… and you will need the information.  I am 100% certain that every human being that reads this, will need the advice I bring.  All I ask of you is that you take a couple of minutes to read what I’ve written below. Some things in life need to be discovered by going through trauma and tragedy.  I’ve been there, done that, so I know.

There are legal and medical terms that I would like to define for you right now.  The first is Iatrogenic Addiction.  This is defined as an addiction caused by a doctor.  Then, we have Iatrogenic Death. Iatrogenic death is death caused by your doctor.  So, we have addiction and death directly caused by doctors.  You say, so what?  My reply to that is that in the US, Iatrogenic Death has become the #1 cause of preventable accidental death today! Iatrogenesis is known as the “inadvertent and preventable induction of disease or complications by the medical treatment or procedures of a physician or surgeon.”  Feeling shocked?  The truth is shocking, isn’t it? We know it’s there but we refuse to accept it.  Yes… conventional medicine is actually the leading cause of death. So, going to your doctor could very likely end up with you getting sicker and sicker until that doctor causes your death. Is every doctor set up to kill you? No; however, there are enough of them out there for them to be the #1 cause of death!!! 

  • If your doctor wants to give you Opiates, Benzodiazepines, antipsychotics, antidepressants, stimulants, or hypnotics for more than 3 days, RUN!
  • If your doctor is test happy, RUN!
  • If your doctor spends no time outside of the exam room discussing his/her findings, RUN!
  • If your doctor goes on frequent vacations, RUN!
  • If your doctor refuses to offer you natural healing solutions FIRST, then RUN!
  • If a doctor doesn’t tell you that GMO’s, vaccines and foods that are not organic will give you diseases, sickness and cause an early death, RUN!

 


Here’s an article by a recognized physician, Dr Josh Axe, that you may find frightfully awakening to the crisis with doctors today and iatrogenic addiction and death…

Prescription Death
You may have thought cancer or heart disease takes the lives of more Americans than any other illness or event. But conventional medicine is actually the leading cause of death today!

Iatrogenesis is known as the “inadvertent and preventable induction of disease or complications by the medical treatment or procedures of a physician or surgeon.”

Health Care in America Today

The Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) was created by Congress to analyze scientific and technical issues in America. From 1972 to 1995, the OTA conducted studies on health care, pollution and other such topics.

  • After producing an unfavorable report of US health care, the agency was disbanded by Congress.
  • The OTA’s 1995 report on health care found that:
  • Life expectancy in the US was among the lowest in developed countries
  • Infant mortality rates in the US are poor
  • Technology in US medicine is expensive and unrestrained
  • 67% of physicians in the US in 1990 were specialists
  • The drug industry exacerbates health care costs while new drugs rarely provide more benefit than old
  • The FDA doesn’t consider the effectiveness of new treatments or compare new products to old
  • The FDA does not consider non-drug alternatives
  • The pre- and post-approval processes for drugs is lacking

The report concluded with these statements:

“Only 10-20% of all procedures used in medical practice have been shown to be efficacious by controlled trial,” and “There are no mechanisms in place to limit dissemination of technologies regardless of their clinical value.”

The Nutrition Institute of America funded an independent review of “government-approved” medicine that was published in 2006. Professors Gary Null and Dorothy Smith, along with doctors Carolyn Dean, Martin Feldman and Debora Rasio titled the report “Death by Medicine.”

The researchers found that America’s leading cause of death isn’t heart disease or cancer: its conventional medicine. They found that the iatrogenic death rate in the US (death caused by doctors and/or medical treatments) is 783,936 a year. That’s 84,059 more deaths than those caused by heart disease in 2001 and 230,865 more deaths than those caused by cancer.

Over a decade, the scientists predict that iatrogenic deaths will total about 7.8 million, “more than all the casualties from all the wars fought by the US throughout its entire history,” a death rate equivalent to that caused by six jumbo jets falling out of the sky every day.

They also believe the numbers are actually much higher because most iatrogenic deaths aren’t reported as such: only 5 to 20% of iatrogenic deaths are reported for fear of lawsuits and because codes for reporting deaths due to drug side effects and other medical errors don’t even exist in many cases. The number of deaths due to conventional medicine may be 20 times higher than the numbers depicted here.

The study authors, using the most conservative statistics they could find, broke down iatrogenic deaths over ten years as following:

  • Adverse Drug Reactions 1.06 million
  • Medical Error 0.98 million
  • Bedsores 1.15 million
  • Hospital Infections 0.88 million
  • Malnutrition in Health Care 1.09 million
  • Outpatients 1.99 million
  • Unnecessary Procedures 371,360
  • Surgery-related 320,000

The “Death by Medicine” doctors also took a look at unnecessary medical care over the course of a decade. They found that 89 million people are hospitalized unnecessarily each year and that 17 million iatrogenic events will occur among this number. 75 million Americans receive unnecessary medical procedures over a decade, 15 million of which result in an iatrogenic event. 164 million people will receive unneeded medical treatment within a decade.

So what’s behind these death rates and adverse events? Profit, politics, defensive medicine, lack of research on treatments, one-size-fits-all drugs, lack of doctor-patient time and the abuse and overmedication of our elderly are all culprits.

Conflicts of Interest

Former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine Dr. Marcia Angell has written that pharmaceutical stock and other financial incentives for scientists are twisting medical research and science altogether to suit business goals.

Not only do such credible journals accept studies from researchers with conflicts of interest, when a drug company funds a study, ABC News found that there is a 90% chance that the drug will be deemed effective compared to the 50% rate of this conclusion when a study isn’t funded by a pharmaceutical company.

The US General Accounting Office found that “of the 198 drugs approved by the FDA between 1976 and 1985…102 (or 51.5%) has serious post-approval risks,” including “heart failure, myocardial infarction, anaphylaxis, respiratory depression and arrest, seizures, kidney and liver failure, severe blood disorders, birth defects and fetal toxicity, and blindness.”

Antibiotics

Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that 90% of upper respiratory infections are viral; more than 40% of the 50 million prescriptions written each year for antibiotics are prescribed for such infections. Antibiotics have no effect on viruses and the overuse of antibiotics has likely led to the drug-resistant superbugs and the 88,000 deaths due to hospital infections every year.

The CDC does not report on the research that supports nutraceuticals for viral infections and immune system strengthening that could lessen antibiotic abuse, the study authors lament.

Hospitals receive funding based on how many beds they fill. This fact, and the fact that doctors practice defensive medicine to protect themselves from lawsuits, results in unnecessary hospitalizations and many unnecessary screenings and treatments.

Unnecessary Treatments

  • The media often drives unnecessary treatments and the prescribing of unneeded drugs. While cosmetic surgeries may number the greatest of these, cesarean sections, cardiac surgeries, endoscopies, back surgeries and pain-relieving surgeries are vastly over-used.
  • Dr. Barbara Starfield reports that the overuse of technology creates a “cascade effect” in treating patients: unnecessary outpatient treatment often leads to more visits, more prescriptions, more hospitalizations and deaths.
  • X-rays, CT scans, mammograms and other such diagnostics are costly and cumulatively dangerous, yet they are given regularly to soothe patient fears and often lead to unnecessary surgeries.
  • Pregnant women used to have x-rays regularly until a study found that they increased death in children from cancer by 40%.
  • Coronary angiography, the use of radiation to look at blood vessels and the heart, is another widely practiced diagnostic whose effects are unknown.
  • Dr. John Goffman believes that x-rays, CT scans, mammography and fluoroscopy contribute to 75% of the new cancers diagnosed every year and increases in heart disease. He believes that ionizing radiation will cause 100 million premature deaths from 2006 to 2016.
  • Orthopedic surgeon Dr. John Sarno says that many back surgeries are based on abnormal x-rays even though multiple studies have found that there is often no connection between abnormalities on x-rays and back pain.

Chemotherapy

Professor Ulrich Abel analyzed the use of chemotherapy for epithelial cancer and published the results in 1989. He found no direct evidence that chemotherapy helps people with advanced carcinoma to survive; only a slight benefit in patients with small-cell lung cancer; and perhaps some slight benefit in those with ovarian cancer.

He said that the belief that chemotherapy can prolong survival is an “opinion based on a fallacy which is not supported by clinical studies.”

High-dose chemotherapy (HDC) is still a treatment of choice, however, for breast cancer unchecked by normal doses, even though a March 2000 study found that HDC held no benefits and even slightly reduced survival rates.

Women and Conventional Medicine

The “Death by Medicine” doctors take special note of the unnecessary procedures practiced on women in America. 19th-century views of women, the idea that women’s reproductive organs were the basis of physical and mental illnesses have leftover influences on medicine today.

Dr. Adriane Fugh-Berman has studied this influence on conventional medicine. She reports that:

  • thousands of “preventive” mastectomies are performed every year
  • more women than men are prescribed drugs
  • women are more often given preventive medications that result in side effects than men
    one-third of women are given hysterectomies before they’ve even gone through menopause
  • fetal monitoring is common practice even though the CDC doesn’t recommend it, it’s use isn’t supported by research and it may result in higher rates of cesarean section
    menopause and childbirth are considered medical conditions rather than normal biological practices
  • the one-third of post-menopausal women on synthetic hormones don’t experience heart disease prevention or cognitive benefits but do experience increased risk of cancer, heart disease and stroke
  • Obstetric-gynecologic surgeries represent 23% of all US surgeries performed in 1983, reports the study authors. Cesarean sections take top billing and hysterectomies come in second place.
  • They estimate that 640,000 cesarean sections are performed each year in the US and that these increase mortality rates 3 to 4 times and disease rates by 20 times compared to vaginal deliveries.

Sick Care System

The “Death by Medicine” doctors say that the overuse of medical testing, technology, surgery and drugs does little to prevent disease and results in the most US deaths.

What is more important to consider, they say, is the practice of preventive medicine, changes that would address the root causes of disease: stress and its effects on the immune system, a compromised brain/body connection, lack of physical activity, denatured and processed food intake, and exposure to environmental toxins.

10 Medical Professionals Who Were Murderers (Yes, there are many, many more)

“Primum non nocere” is a Latin phrase which means “First, do no harm,” and it is the foundation on which medicine is based. However, there are some medical professionals who use the profession’s social status and easy access to drugs to perform heinous acts of cruelty against their patients. In most cases, their crimes go undetected for years, until they finally take their murderous tendencies too far. Read on to learn about ten doctors and nurses whose unfortunate patients quickly became victims.
1)  Josef Mengele: the “Angel of Death” who operated without anesthesia, sewed twins together and killed thousands

Dr. Josef Mengele was an SS Physician at the Nazi concentration camp in Auschwitz during the Second World War. As Jewish prisoners were lead off the trains into the camp, Dr. Mengele would stand in his white coat with his arms outstretched, earning him the nickname “Angel of Death.” The doctor’s job was to examine each person to see if he or she was healthy enough to enter the forced labor camp or not. Those deemed unfit to work were immediately lead to the gas chambers. The doctor was also known for his harsh “solutions” to minor problems. For example, he once ordered all seven hundred and fifty women in a dormitory to be gassed because of an outbreak of head lice.

However, it was not the doctor’s role in these crimes against humanity that earned him his notoriety. Rather, it was his fondness for performing forced medical experiments on the prisoners, especially on twins and children. Mengele operated on people without using anesthesia, often removing their organs, amputating limbs, injecting dyes into eyeballs in an attempt to change the eye color, and sewing twins together to form monstrous conjoined siblings. Most of Mengele’s patients died on the operating table, or quickly afterward, due to infection.

After the war, Mengele fled to South America, where he lived until his death in 1979. Though he was a wanted Nazi war criminal, he was never captured and brought to justice.

2)  Jane Toppan: the nurse who killed at least 31 patients with morphine

Jane Toppan was an American nurse who killed thirty-one of her patients by administering lethal injections of morphine. Over the course of two decades while working in the Boston, Massachusetts area, Toppan may have actually killed upwards of seventy people altogether.

As a young, attractive twenty-six year-old nurse, Toppan was able to hide her dark obsession with death from nearly everyone she worked with. Even as a nursing student, she would alter her patients’ medicine dosages to see what would happen to their nervous systems, and once she became a Registered Nurse she took her skills to the next level, administering overdoses of morphine and atropine.

Toppan finally slipped up when she murdered a man whom she was caring for as a private nurse. Along with Alden Davis, Toppan also killed two of his daughters, leaving a third daughter to go to police and start an investigation. Once one of the Davis girls was exhumed, authorities discovered that she had been poisoned, and it didn’t take much to figure out who was behind the treachery.

After Toppan was caught, she is quoted as saying that she wanted to kill more people than anyone who has ever lived before. She confessed to thirty-one of her murders, and provided details to solve them. Since Toppan had a well-documented history of attempted suicide, she was committed to a mental hospital, where she lived for forty years until her death in 1938.

3)  Michael Swango: the doctor who killed at least 30 patients, poisoned coworkers, then killed some more in Africa

Though American doctor Michael Swango appeared to be handsome and congenial in nature, signs of his inner mental instability were noticeable to colleagues even while he was attending medical school. Swango’s classmates observed that he often worked on a scrapbook containing images of horrific, bloody disasters, and they worried that some of the basic anatomical knowledge expected from a physician was sorely lacking. However, no one knew how scary Swango really was until they discovered years later that he had killed between thirty and sixty of his patients.

As an intern in 1983, Swango’s patients started quietly dying after he had been in the room with him. Though nurses alerted hospital officials at Ohio State University, their cursory investigations revealed nothing, and Swango continued to practice medicine without reproach. He moved to Illinois, taking a job as an ambulance driver because he admitted that he liked seeing the blood and gore of accidents. It was there that his coworkers again became suspicious of him. Swango began slowly poisoning his coworkers with ant poison, sending them home sick with terrible stomach pains. After a particularly bad episode involving a tainted batch of donuts, his coworkers set a trap for Swango by leaving him alone in a room with a pitcher of iced tea. They later had the tea tested in a lab and found that Swango had indeed put ant poison in the tea.

A police search of Swango’s home found chemicals, weapons, and handwritten recipes for poison. He was arrested and served two years of his five year sentence. Incredibly, after being released for good behavior, he was able to move to a different state and lie his way into another job in the medical field. Swango’s past caught up with him wherever he went, until he finally forged his credentials again to continue his murderous practice in a remote hospital in Africa.

After poisoning more patients in Africa, Swango skipped out of the ensuing scandal and hid in Europe for several years. When he finally tried to re-enter the United States in 1997, officials were waiting for him at the airport. He was arrested and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

4)  John Bodkin Adams: the doctor who made over a hundred elderly patients include him in their wills

Dr. John Bodkin Adams was a British doctor who, between 1946 and 1956, may have been responsible for the death of over one hundred and sixty of his patients. Dr. Adams was a general practitioner who was especially friendly towards his elderly female patients. He would dote on them to the point where they seemingly decided to rewrite their wills. In fact, one hundred and thirty-two of these patients added Dr. Adams to their wills just before they passed away.

The interesting thing about this doctor is that he was never found guilty of murder or other professional negligence, leading some people to wonder if Dr. Adams was helping his patients euthanize themselves. However, a later trial regarding thirteen additional offences, including prescription fraud, lying on cremation forms, obstructing a police search, and failing to keep a dangerous drugs register, earned him a guilty verdict and stripped him of his medical degree. After two failed attempts, Adams got his license back in 1961.

After he was acquitted on the murder charges, Adams kept practicing medicine until he died of natural causes. This case instigated many important changes to the English legal system.

5) Dorothea Waddingham: the nurse who was hanged after killing a mother and her daughter

Though Dorothea Waddingham was not a Registered Nurse, she ran a nursing home near Nottingham, England for many years. Waddingham, who was a wife and mother to five children, began taking elderly invalids into her home in the early 1930s. Two of these women were mother and daughter. First the mother died, and shortly afterward the younger woman also passed away. It was then that their family discovered that the younger woman had recently changed her will to leave everything to Waddingham. She had also added some bizarre details, such as a desire to be cremated immediately after her death, and she requested that her family not be notified when she died.

In order to have a cremation, two doctor’s signatures were required to sign off on her death certificate. The first doctor was well-known to Waddingham and signed off with no issues. The second doctor was suspicious, especially in light of the woman’s recent changes to her will. He ordered an autopsy of her body and found large amounts of morphine in her system. After examining the deceased mother’s remains, they found that she had also died from a morphine overdose.

Waddingham was found guilty of murder and insurance fraud and was sentenced to death. As a young mother of five children, one of whom was just three months old and still breastfeeding, the execution drew ten thousand protesters who chanted, “Stop this mother murder!” Nevertheless, Waddingham was hanged for her crimes in 1936.

6)  H.H. Holmes: America’s first Serial Killer

H.H. Holmes was an American physician who is known to have murdered between twenty and one hundred people, though his victims may have actually numbered as high as two hundred people.

During his schooling at the University of Michigan Medical School, Holmes began to steal bodies from the lab and take out bogus insurance policies on them. He would then disfigure the corpses and claim they had been in an accident so that he could cash out the policies.

Holmes moved to Chicago and began to associate with nefarious characters. He also became a polygamist, keeping three wives at the same time, none of whom knew about the others. After swindling a widow out of her husband’s pharmacy business, Holmes built a huge hotel that took up three store fronts and resembled a castle. He forced his employees to take out life insurance policies in which he was the beneficiary, and then he started murdering them to collect the money.

Holmes favored female victims, and his employees and hotel guests frequently disappeared. Since the Chicago World Fair was taking place, it was not altogether unusual for people to come and go in the Chicago area, so his crimes went unnoticed for quite some time.

In the hotel, Holmes had built rooms that were rigged with gas lines, along with airtight vaults and other horrific torture devices. He would torture and kill people in the basement, then dismember some of the bodies and sell their organs and skeletons to medical research labs.

After he was finally caught, Holmes was sentenced to death by hanging in 1897. Holmes’ hanging was gruesome; his neck didn’t break. Instead, he strangled to death over the course of fifteen to twenty minutes.

7)  Jayant Patel: the surgeon who’s linked to 87 deaths, yet found “not guilty” twice

Though American surgeon Jayant Patel has been linked to about eighty-seven deaths among his patients between the years of 2003 and 2005, he has been found not guilty by the Australian court system not once, but twice.

8) Beverley Allitt: the nurse who injected children with air bubbles and insulin

Beverley Allitt is a nurse who worked in the children’s ward at Grantham and Kesteven Hospital, Lincolnshire, England. During the course of fifty-nine horrible days in 1991, Allitt murdered four children in the hospital by administering lethal doses of insulin and injecting air bubbles into their blood streams. She also attempted to murder three other children, and badly injured six more.

Allitt was caught and sentenced to thirteen life sentences for her crimes. Though we’ll never know exactly why Allitt started murdering her young patients in the hospital, in prison she was diagnosed with Münchausen syndrome by proxy. This controversial psychological condition is described as “involving a pattern of abuse in which a perpetrator ascribes to, or physically falsifies illnesses in someone under their care to attract attention.”

9)  Arnfinn Nesset: the nursing home manager who murdered 22 patients and is now free

While working as a nurse and nursing home manager, Norwegian Arnfinn Nesset murdered at least twenty-two patients. He also committed document forgery and embezzlement and was convicted of attempted murder, as well. It’s possible that his victims numbered closer to one hundred and thirty, but many of those cases could not be definitively pinned to him.

After a series of suspicious deaths in the nursing home he managed, Nesset confessed to the murders of twenty-seven of his patients by injecting them with suxamethonium chloride, a muscle relaxer. He later recanted his confession. Nevertheless, he was convicted of poisoning twenty-two patients in 1983.

Sentenced to only twenty-one years in prison, which was the maximum sentence under Norwegian law at the time, Nesset served just twelve of those years and is now free. He is thought to be living under an assumed name.

10)  Harold Shipman: the British Doc who killed over two hundred people for the money

In 2000, Dr. Harold Shipman became the only British doctor to be successfully prosecuted for the murder of his patients. Shipman was found guilty of murdering fifteen patients, though an investigation known as the 2002 Shipman Inquiry concluded that he had actually murdered an additional two hundred people for which he was never charged.

Like other doctors on this list, it was the nurses who worked alongside Shipman who first noticed that many of his patients were dying after being alone with him in their rooms. They were also concerned about how many cremation forms the doctor needed to have signed by a second physician. After alerting the authorities, yet another cursory investigation turned up nothing, so the doctor went about his devious business unabated.

It wasn’t until Shipman made a huge mistake that he was finally caught. He had killed an older patient and forged a new will, cutting the woman’s children out and leaving himself a very large monetary inheritance. The patient’s daughter insisted on an investigation, and when the patient’s body was exhumed coroners discovered that she had overdosed on a form of medicinal heroin. After searching Shipman’s home, they found the typewriter that he had used to forge her new will.

Once Shipman was arrested, an investigation exposed his pattern of administering lethal overdoses of diamorphine, signing patients’ death certificates, and then falsifying medical records to “prove” that they had been in poor health.

Shipman was sentenced to fifteen consecutive life sentences in 2000. He later committed suicide by hanging himself in his jail cell in 2004.
There are many, many more. Stay tuned! NEVER trust your doctor.  Doctors can be greedy psychopaths or sociopaths with an MD after their names. BEWARE!  You’ve been warned!

You May be Safer Taking a Nap in Front of an Oncoming Train than at your Doctor’s Office or Hospital

A new public health crisis: Preventable harm in healthcare

Preventable harm in healthcare is now a public health crisis and requires a nationwide, coordinated response, said a leading patient safety organization.

Indeed, studies point to medical errors as a leading cause of death in the United States, and the National Patient Safety Foundation Monday issued a “call to action” (PDF) for a coordinated public health response to take steps to prevent avoidable errors.

“Too often, efforts to blame individuals and organizations for preventable harm diverts attention and resources away from a more effective and sustainable collective response,” the organization announced on Monday, the first day of patient safety awareness week.

The NPSF said greater collaboration and a nationwide adoption of a public health framework will help guide efforts to prevent healthcare harm. This type of approach has already helped reduce healthcare-associated infections, the organization said.

Despite localized efforts to improve patient safety, the scare of improvement has been limited and inconsistent, according to the NPSF. Some healthcare organizations have successfully implemented improving strategies, such as
using checklists, medication barcoding, revamped care transitions), but others haven’t yet been able to introduce the interventions or replicate the results.

Instead of finger-pointing and blame, the agency urges more collaboration and a coordinated, system-wide effort geared at providing safe care delivery across the continuum of care. This will require the support of healthcare workers, patient and families.

The call to action urges:

1) The creation of a national steering committee patient safety to set national patient harm reduction goals and establish a nationwide action plan.
2) The establishment of a centralized and coordinated national oversight of patient safety.
Partnership with patients and families by engaging them in their care.
3) Creation of national patient safety benchmarks to effective measure and monitor progress, and eliminate invalid measures.
4) Identification of the causes of harm and interventions that work. This will require funding for research on preventing healthcare harm and the creation of a Health IT Safety 5) Center that optimizes technology and minimizes unintended consequences.
6) Expansion of resources to support the healthcare workforce, including initiatives to improve working conditions and establishment of communication, apology and resolution programs.

“What are my options, you ask”?  There are many. I’ll list just a few suggestions below. This is by far only a suggestion list, as there are many, many more things you can do to secure your health.

  1. ALWAYS have an advocate  when going to your doctor, your pharmacy and the hospital for tests or admission. Overseeing is VITAL! You advocate should be an RN or LPN, doctor or other licensed medical professional who knows what they are doing.
  2. Discover Alternative Medicine to remedy your heath issues. The chemicals in medications will ALWAYS harm you. How else could your doctor, pharmacy and hospital stay in business.  If they keep you healthy, there is no revenue!
  3. Seek to minimize medications you are taking by seeing a qualified Naturopath who can substitute natural nutrition, herbs and other nutritionals to get you back in health.
  4. STOP eating GMO’s, processed foods, sugar, breads, bread products, sugar substitutes, pasta, bread, and fast foods.  Cook and buy only organic, non-gmo foods and prepare all that you eat from scratch. This includes all of your vitamins and other supplements always being organic and non-gmo!

Opiates & Benzos

Opiates are the MOST abused drug in the US today. In some people, addiction will begin in just 3 days or less. Most will be addicted within 4-6 weeks. After that, they will need detox to get them out of their addiction. The 6 week point is the point where doctors will escalate the addiction by increasing dosages and adding other opiates or other drugs that potentiate the effect of the opiates.  Examples of other drugs would be: antidepressants, Soma, and benzodiazepines such as ativan, klonopin and xanax, hypnotics, neurontin, lyrica and more. These monster doctors are fully aware of what they are doing to you, but do it anyone because addiction is an easy ride for them. All they do is keep giving you your Rx’s each month, collect $880.00 and up in insurance money for each of your visits. When you die, there are 4 to replace you in that notorious hell of a waiting room.

One of the immediate effects of opiates are drowsiness, lethargy, memory loss, paranoia, fear, respiratory depression and oftentimes nausea. One of the reasons for memory loss is due to a condition known as hypoxia. Hypoxia is oxygen loss to the brain and is caused by the opiates causing shallow and decreased respirations. An obvious sign of opiate use that is evident in ALL who are taking opiates is what is called ‘pinprick or pinpoint pupils’. One look and a trained eye knows; you don’t need to ask. The addict thinks you can’t possible know. This is a big giveaway of opiate abuse and cannot be disguised. Dark glasses won’t cover this up. If you’re stopped by a cop, you can be arrested for a DUI and probably do time in jail for it. If you do go to jail, most courts will not help you out with withdrawal. They will let you go cold turkey which is not fun and could bring seizures, heart attack, stroke and death. It’s noteworthy to mention that you can also be arrested for a DUI with taking Benzos… even at small doses – only once daily – over a long period of time (longer than 3 months). Most likely, your pupils will be dilated and will be quite evident to the trained eye. Those benzo eyes are everywhere! Constriction can happen also, based on other medications or drugs the person is taking.

God designed the heart and mind to coexist without drugs, therefore He knows far above what doctors, psychiatrist, substance abuse counselors and the media know about the damage that happens to an addicted heart and mind. In my humble opinion, I think denial is the worst enemy of someone on opiates or benzodiazepines. They are so afraid of being without their best ‘friends’ (drugs), that they try to deny the addiction. The problem is, the addiction will not deny them the right to suffer and die.

Remember: The fact that your doctor prescribed these dangerous drugs, does NOT release you from liability. You must always do your research and be accountable. Opiates and Benzos are BIG BIZ! Doctors cash in on that. Don’t be a cash cow. If you’re in an addiction, run from the doctor who gave it to you and find a medically supervised detox facility to get you off of these drugs. It’s the ONLY safe way of doing it. Please don’t be fooled by those who say you can do it yourself; you can’t.

Are all doctor malicious and trying to addict you for the sake of the almighty dollar and easy money? Are all doctors out for the lifestyle of the rich and famous?  Of course not; however, the majority must be because doctors are now the #1 cause of preventable accidental death her in the US… now surpassing car accidents! So, your answer is in the statistics.

National Alliance for Rx Drug Addiction Survivors (NARDAS)

NARDAS is an alliance that we have recently formed that will:

  1. Bring Awareness to the dangers Rx Drug Addiction

  2. Educate patients on physician induced addiction (Iatrogenic Addiction) which is the #1 cause of preventable accidental death in the US right now

  3. Advocate for those affected

  4. Provide support to it’s victims and their families

  5. Educate doctors about prescription drug addiction and detox

  6. Offer alternative methods of dealing with pain, anxiety, insomnia, hyperactivity, etc

  7. Encourage detox to those affected

  8. Organize a Membership so members can bring awareness to their communities

  9. Alert people to the dangers of Rx drugs, resulting damage to the body and mind and  the dangers of withdrawal

  10. Encourage safe medically supervised detoxification in a hospital or detox facility

  11. Prevent the initiation of addictive medications

  12. Educate in natural alternative therapies

  13. Arrange online meetings for discussion groups

Holding doctors criminally accountable for the forced addiction of innocent and trusting patients, MUST HAPPEN. Doctors are medical professionals to whom you go to for healing – not further suffering that leads to an untimely death.

Among a host of other major health problems, here are just a few that come from addictive and dangerous Rx drugs:
1) addiction will quickly happen (usually in approximately 2 weeks)
2) the torment of increasing episodes of withdrawal, requiring more drugs and increased dosages which = more side effects
3) inexplicable and bizarre physical and mental symptoms will always occur that they won’t tell you the drugs are responsible for. Rather, they put you through extensive, expensive and unnecessary testing for diseases that don’t exist, after which they give you and more addictive and psychotropic medications that further endanger your physical and emotional health
4) stroke, heart attacks, seizures, psychosis, hallucinations, mental ‘illness’ that is simply a result of the drugs’ side effects
5) an untimely preventable ‘accidental’ death

About these drugs and their effect on you and your psyche:
They’re lethal. Their harm far outweighs their short lived ‘good’. They will romance you for a short time until it begins to destroy and ultimately end your life – slowly, and with the panic of terror. You will be dumbed down and your existence is all about having the drugs and getting the drugs. The suffering is beyond belief. Some of the side effects of particular drugs will last a lifetime. All too many lose their lives. There is no respect of person, age, sex, or position in life. When doctors prescribe these dangerous drugs, they are now giving them to man, woman and child.

Many of these dangerous drugs cause you to feel a euphoria that stops you remembering past hurts and emotional pain. That NEVER lasts… it’s only temporary and will eventually bite you. Most victims of Rx drug addiction enter into it innocently because they trust their doctor. It’s a betrayal like no other. I term it a chemical rape! It is an UNINTENTIONAL drug addiction. Much like any addiction, it takes hostages of the victim and the people who love them. There is no eye in this storm; you need God Himself to lead you out and bring you to safety.

The short term and seemingly quick fix for you, produces a long term high income for your greedy doctor. The death toll is currently up to a staggering 783,936 innocent victims this past year – in the US alone. The suffering is well beyond these numbers. Left behind are grieving loved ones who feel unspeakable guilt that they should have known what they couldn’t have known at the time. Parents find their cold and lifeless kids bodies, foaming at the mouth on the bed in the home and bedroom they designed for their comfort, security and joy. Children can’t find the mom or dad they used to know as loving and caring – due to the effect the drug has on them, or, due to death. The personality of people become buried. These victims are criticized for their ‘drug seeking behavior and doctor shopping’ when doctors fully understand that they HAVE NO CHOICE in order to stop the torture of withdrawal. Everyone who becomes addicted to prescription drugs is owned by their addiction. They have little to no time for their careers, children, activities of daily living, their friends, or their families whom they once cherished. Everything falls apart.

What can be done? Together, we need to work cohesively, from the bottom up rather than from the top down. Why? It’s because Big Pharma and Big Med have become too powerful and are untouchable at this point. So, we educate you, the people, on how to never allow doctors to addict you. We help and support those addicted as to ways on how to get out and stay out. We offer alternative suggestions for ways to manage life’s challenges that got you there in the first place. We give support and comfort to the grieving loved ones left behind. Everyone is given a chance to tell their story or to speak on behalf of your loved one who lost their life. THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE BECAUSE THERE IS AN ABUSE OF POWER THAT THEY SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAD IN THE FIRST PLACE. It can change when you hit doctors where it hurts more – their wallets!  If you’ve been injured by an addiction give to you by your doctor, or, a loved one has died of an accidental prescription drug overdose, please contact a malpractice attorney today.

You’re in pain.  Maybe it’s your back… neck… knee… or elsewhere.  Your heart tells you that it’s unbearable and you have to stop it – immediately or sooner.  Your mind speaks a different story, but your heart takes over, so you decide not to stick around for your mind to explain.  You don’t want to have pain and you don’t want to take the time to figure out ways to quiet the pain or why the pain is even there.  Just make it stop, says your heart.

First of all, pain is a very normal process of your body.  It alerts you to the fact that something is wrong. No pain occurs without a reason or cause.  The etiology of pain could be very real and physical, or it can even be emotionally induced.  Whatever the cause, it must be investigated. What most doctors do these days is to immediately medicate you with addictive substances such as Opiate painkillers such as Hydrocodone, Oxycontin, Codeine, Morphine, Norco, Percocet, Methadone, Vicodin and many, many other brands and generics.  It’s up to YOU to say, “NO”.

When are Opiates an acceptable practice?   In my opinion, there are only  3  reasons for the use of these deadly and addictive medications… and only when a patient is CLOSELY monitored.  So, here are the 3 reasons . . . . . . .

  • during the final days of life and only when a person is in extraordinary pain.
  • post-op for 3 days only – IF there is no history of addiction
  • post severe trauma – IF there is no history of addiction and only for 3 days

In any other circumstances, it is an UNETHICAL practice to prescribe these drugs. If a doctor does prescribe them, you need to suspect their agenda.  Mostly, as is talked about in the media, it is for MONEY $$$ MONEY $$$ MONEY $$$ MONEY $$$ MONEY!  Manditory monthly visits, along with additional visits necessary to treat all of the many side effects from these drugs, brings much business to unscrupulous greedy doctors who use you as a cash cow.  For chronic pain sufferers who don’t know what to do, there are wonderful natural alternatives for pain.  I will be getting into that over the course of my next few posts.

Allergens in Vaccines Are Causing Life-Threatening Food Allergies

Below is a great article for you to read.  Amp yourself up with information about what Big Med, Big Pharma and Big Agra are trying to do to us. The more info you get, the less likely you are to be victimized.

It would probably surprise few people to hear that food allergies are increasingly common in U.S. children and around the world. According to one public health website, food allergies in children aged 0-17 in the U.S. increased by 50% from 1997 to 2011.

Although food allergies are now so widespread as to have become almost normalized, it is important to realize that millions of American children and adults suffer from severe rapid-onset allergic reactions that can be life-threatening. Foods represent the most common cause of anaphylaxis among children and adolescents. The United Kingdom has witnessed a 700% increase in hospital admissions for anaphylaxis and a 500% increase in admissions for food allergy since 1990.

The question that few are asking is why life-threatening food allergies have become so alarmingly pervasive. A 2015 open access case report by Vinu Arumugham in the Journal of Developing Drugs, entitled “Evidence that Food Proteins in Vaccines Cause the Development of Food Allergies and Its Implications for Vaccine Policy,” persuasively argues that allergens in vaccines—and specifically food proteins—may be the elephant in the room.

Historical Perspective

As Arumugham points out, scientists have known for over 100 years that injecting proteins into humans or animals causes immune system sensitization to those proteins. And, since the 1940s, researchers have confirmed that food proteins in vaccines can induce allergy in vaccine recipients. Arumugham is not the first to bring the vaccine-allergy link to the public’s attention. Heather Fraser makes a powerful case for the role of vaccines in precipitating peanut allergies in her 2011 book, The Peanut Allergy Epidemic: What’s Causing It and How to Stop It. In that fascinating book, Fraser notes that mass allergic phenomena (called “serum sickness” at the time) first emerged at the close of the nineteenth century in tandem with mass vaccination.

Allergens in Vaccines

What food proteins are found in vaccines? The list includes ovalbumin, casein, gelatin, and soy. As Arumugham ascertained, however, synthetic vaccine ingredients such as polysorbate 80 and sorbitol also are sourced from food items, including coconut, palm, sunflower, wheat, and corn. Arumugham observes that it is likely impossible to fully eliminate residual allergen proteins deriving from these sources. Moreover, it takes very low-level exposure to food proteins to cause allergic sensitization.

Synergy with aluminum-based adjuvants

A more subtle and troubling point is that the aluminum adjuvants contained in many vaccines augment the food proteins’ immunogenicity (a substance’s ability to provoke an immune response). When numerous food proteins and adjuvants get injected in one sitting, as is the case when multiple shots are administered simultaneously, the probability of sensitization greatly increases.

Implications

The Institute of Medicine admits that food proteins in vaccines “occasionally induce…sensitization…and subsequent hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis.” Despite this knowledge, the allergen content in vaccines is entirely unregulated. No safe level or limits have ever been established or enforced for the allergens contained in vaccines.

In this context, it is hard to disagree with Arumugham’s suggested solutions. The most obvious response—one that would likely alleviate much suffering—is to remove food proteins and aluminum compounds from vaccines as soon as possible. To decrease the odds of allergic sensitization, it also makes sense to adopt the precaution of decelerating the vaccine schedule and administering one vaccine at a time. In the interim, the link between vaccines and food allergies needs to be openly discussed so that the public can be more fully informed about vaccine risks.
