Medicine has been around for thousands of years
During most of that time it was an art in an area of skill and knowledge, frequently having connections to the religious and philosophical beliefs of the local culture. For example, a medicine man would apply herbs and say prayers for healing, or an ancient philosopher and physician would apply bloodletting according to the theories of humorism. In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become an expensive combination of art and science, both basic and applied, hidden from the people under the broad umbrella of medical science.
Modern medicine is narrowly organized
Given that physicians are organized into single anatomical medical specialties, if there is some disease that produces extremely broad symptoms throughout the body it is then very likely to be mis-diagnosed as separate diseases of the heart, kidneys, brain, or immune system thus requiring a cardiologist, nephrologist, neurologist or immunologist. Spread the wealth….
Couple that with the fact modern medicine shuns treatment with nutritional approaches to disease and you end up with medicines prescribed to allay symptoms rather than to eliminate causes. Life-long maladies which many doctors today may mis-classify as psychosomatic in origin or treat narrowly as if they are actual diseases of the heart, lungs, eyes, and brain, when the actual problem is spread across the body due to nutritional deficiencies. Remember the old saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”?
Modern medicine practice then takes these symptoms, classifies them into anatomic syndromes that require drugging. The public is clueless over this misdirection. All drugs have risks and hopefully, people will begin to realize that medications simply treat the symptom not the underlying problem that caused the issue to begin with. Modern medicine is only about management, not treatment. Modern medical care also depends on timely new medical information – which is still delivered in many health care settings only on paper, but it is slowly increasing nowadays through electronic means. Many physicians now use the internet to research an illness or your symptoms to reach their diagnosis. You should never Google your own illness symptoms as most doctors resent having you question their knowledge and expertise.
Separation of prescribing and dispensing of drugs is the current practice in medicine and pharmacy in which the physician who provides a medical prescription is independent and isolated from the pharmacist who provides the prescription drug.
Medical Misadventure is any injury or adverse reaction resulting from any medical treatment.
Some examples are medication errors, IV infection, surgical mistakes and postoperative septicemia. Medical misadventure is increasingly being highlighted as a growing problem with many thousands of deaths being attributed to medical errors. The legal definition of medical misadventure only indicates personal injury resulting from medical error or medical mishap, or an unintended outcome of an intended action.
Doctors, kill 783,936 people each year.
Doctors shoot you not with metal bullets, but with vaccines, chemotherapy and pharmaceuticals… all of which turn out to be FAR more deadly than guns.
These 783,936 deaths are especially amazing, given that there are just under 700,000 doctors in America. How do 700,000 doctors manage to kill 783,936 people each year? That’s over one death per doctor.
Hundreds of people are killed EVERY SINGLE DAY across U.S. hospitals from pharmaceutical side effects alone. American Medical News, stated that 28 percent of people admitted to hospitals are there because they have suffered an adverse reaction to prescribed drugs. There’s zero talk about making medications safer, or reducing the number of people who are medicated every day in America.
On top of that, hospitals are killing many people with superbug infections, fouled up surgeries, and failed heart stents, among other deadly problems. There’s no mention of the astonishing fact that surgical procedures do not need to be first proven to be safe and effective before being experimentally tried on patients. Surgery in American medicine is, in effect, a grand experiment often conducted with little or no scientific support.
The 2,148 people in the United States that the doctors kill every day by medical malpractice is roughly equal to the amount of people that would die if every day, four jumbo jets crashed and killed everybody on board. Four jumbo jets crashing in one day certainly would be on all the news as a great tragedy, but there is never a peep about the same number of deaths that doctors cause each day. I wonder why?
A JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) statistic stated that 1/5 (20 percent) of all people who see an allopath will suffer a doctor-induced injury. Again, according to JAMA, 16 percent of all people who die in the hospital are determined by autopsy to have died of something other than their admission diagnosis. In other words, the doctor had no idea what was really wrong with the patient and, therefore, the patient died for want of appropriate care that would have been subsequent to an accurate diagnosis.
Because all those deaths are never reported as actual murders and are only overseen by the doctors and pharmacists, no public alarm is ever raised. These quacks are making billions of dollars for themselves and the very corrupt, criminally-run pharmaceutical industry and the for-profit, corporate-driven health care complex.
Spread the word
If we really want to save lives, the most important place to start is at the doctors and drug companies. They are the dealers of death who have been granted obscene monopolies by the FDA and state medical boards. Until their stranglehold on U.S. health care is finally broken, millions more innocent Americans will die at the hands of doctors, surgeons and pharmacists.
