The consumer has been lead down a path of deception using ILLUSIONS to financially support a medical model of health. By blending truth and fear the health care system has forced the consumer to “surrender” to an archaic model designed to grow a pharmaceutical industry and its “accomplices,” the medical institutions. The following article details this by examining our PERCEPTION vs REALITY using our government regulatory agency to validate this point . I’m providing this summary because the article is slightly longer than recent posts. I want to remain respectful of your time. I think you will find it interesting.
The older I become, the more I realize that many of our beliefs are based on illusions. I will leave it up to the individual to determine the motives behind them, but the fact is, DECEPTION and FEAR are two powerful forces capable of directing a society toward creating foundational beliefs based on these ILLUSIONS.
Polio is a good example which illustrates an unfounded belief that most people afflicted by this disease wound up paralyzed or dying. To prove this point, please answer the following three multiple choice questions based on your beliefs?
1. If a person was infected with the virus causing polio prior to discovering the polio vaccine what would you think the COMMON outcome would be?
(a) flu like symptoms
(b) typically, no symptoms
2. What percentage of people became paralyzed by the virus causing polio?
3. What percentage of people paralyzed from polio DIED as a result?
(a) 10-15% of the 1% paralyzed
(b) 20-30% of the 3% paralyzed
(c) 35-50% of the 25% paralyzed
(d) >60% of the 40% paralyzed
(NOTE: There are various sources that produce various statistical ranges. To be objective and unbiased, I am using the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) as my reference which aligns with traditional medical statistical reporting.)
The answers are as follows:
1. Up to 72% of people contracting the polio virus experienced NO SYMPTOMS AT ALL. About 24% experienced minor symptoms including upset stomach, fever, sore throat and flu like symptoms. This means that:
96% of all people contracting polio experienced NO SYMPTOMS or only MINOR SYMPTOMS without ANY VACCINATION.
2. The percentage of people that become paralyzed was 1%. Of this 1%, half the patients with spinal polio recovered fully; one-quarter recovered with mild disability, and the remaining quarter were left with severe disability. (Source: Cuccurullo SJ (2004). Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Board Review. Demos Medical Publishing. ISBN 1-888799-45-5.)
3. The percentage of people that DIED from Polio was 1/10 to 1/20 OF 1% paralyzed. This number would be represented by choice “(a)” in the final question above.
Now that I’ve provided you the facts reported by our government regulatory agency, I’ll bet most of you will continue to find it difficult to accept this REALITY anyway. You see, foundational beliefs are structural supports providing stability that ground us and guide us when seeking answers to FEARFUL topics. The Health Care System today uses FEAR and Authoritarian Rights and Privileges to impose their ideology within our foundational boundaries to spread an agenda that supports this illusionary medical model of health while strengthening their financial position at the consumer’s expense.
What I find amazing, is their genius in blending truths and illusions which result in an apathetic population willing to subject their bodies to all kinds of drugs with KNOWN dangerous side effects. The Establishment has become so confident with their control over the consumer, their willingness to share the TRUTHFUL horrific pharmaceutical side effects (as seen in commercials EVERY DAY) is arrogantly displayed. The consumer (as well as the doctor) laughs as these terrifying side effects are legally “spewed” in these commercials without ANY CONCERN for personal safety. It is inconceivable in the mind of the consumer that our doctors would ever give us “medicines” causing such DANGEROUS “side effects.” We desperately want to believe these medicines only contain healing properties and are the missing component to our health problems. Our foundational beliefs impair our judgement about doctors and the pharmaceutical industry that supports them. It becomes easier to rely on their advice and follow their instructions than question whether this advice is truly in our best interest.
In my opening paragraph I wrote, “I would leave it up to you to determine the motives behind these illusions.” I ask you openly to freely challenge my motives as well. I want everyone to know I support medical doctors and the use of pharmaceutical drugs WHEN APPROPRIATE. There are good doctors and good medicines that have saved many lives. This does NOT MEAN, however, that traditional medicine and drugs are necessarily the best and exclusive approach to all health problems.
Since, even today, we accept the illusion that the “polio virus” typically caused paralysis and death, how many other illusions do we base our fundamental health care beliefs on? We accept the idea we live in a dynamic and changing world, yet we exclude this principle to the concept of health care? Why do we willingly follow the same medical model dating back to the early 1900’s? It is my contention that FEAR, DECEPTION and MANIPULATION has created a “deer in the headlights” scenario for the average person without offering viable alternative options. I am sharing this REALITY to give YOU greater confidence knowing that BETTER OPTIONS based on HONEST RESEARCH and CLINICAL OUTCOMES EXIST if you are willing to LISTEN and make yourself part of the SOLUTION! Health is too complicated to rely on one primary medical doctor for all our needs. Creating a team of professionals with experience in various disciplines that offer various options provides an alternative approach more likely to RESPECTFULLY and EFFECTIVELY satisfy the health care needs of the individual. This concept is 21st century thinking and places the PATIENT’S INTEREST FIRST AND PLACES THEM IN CHARGE. The following chart provides an example.
