ARE PHARMACEUTICAL ADS MORE BENEFICIAL OR HARMFUL TO THE AVERAGE CONSUMER
TV advertising is expensive and designed to increase consumer awareness to various services and products. Many of these products can HARM the consumer even if federal guidelines are followed providing some level of awareness explaining these dangers. “The latest statistics for 2016 showed drugmakers on track to spend an estimated 6.4 BILLION dollars on direct […]
WHEN YOUR DOCTOR SAYS, “YOU’RE IN GOOD HEALTH” IS HE/SHE BEING TRUTHFUL?
How many times have you told friends or family members one of the following statements after visiting the doctor? “My doctor gave me the thumbs up after my exam and told me I’m in GOOD HEALTH!” “I was told for my age I’m in GOOD HEALTH!” “My doctor told me my blood work was excellent […]
THERE IS NO WAR ON CANCER
As much as we’d like to believe our health care system is vehemently using every available resource to combat cancer in its goal to discover a CURE, the existing evidence contradicts this finding. The following quoted paragraphs come from Kaiser Health News (links provided if you choose to read the articles in their entirety.) KAISER […]
A NATION DESENSITIZED TO DISEASE
No one wants to be sick, yet the leading diseases we face (and CAUSE) continues to spiral upward. Where is the disconnect between our rational understanding of disease and the destructive behavioral patterns we follow? It can be summed up in one word: DESENSITIZED . As we experience various atrocities in life our INITIAL response […]
CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc… WHY WON’T YOU SHARE THESE HEALTH FINDINGS?
As the battlegrounds are drawn in the sand with an ongoing tug of war over the vaccine efficacy/safety issue, I stand on the sidelines marveling at the lack of concern by those most affected by its outcome. The TRUTH doesn’t seem to matter because the population at large doesn’t seem to care. As long as […]
SEARCHING FOR MOTIVE
When it comes to making the best decisions about our health, seeking information from a variety of credible sources helps the individual determine the best personal course to follow. I think most people would agree with this concept. In application, however, we tend to follow a traditional health care approach provided by our traditional physicians […]
INCREASING LIFE EXPECTANCY BY 3 1/2 MONTHS
The average consumer believes our medical community is diligently working hard to develop the Cure for cancer. We even reinforce this belief by attaching the word, “Cure” to numerous events (ex. Susan G Komen’s “Race For The Cure.”) In reality, medical science is working on developing treatments designed to treat cancer as a chronic […]
THE CANCER DIAGNOSIS
Cancer is a dreaded diagnosis. It understandably elicits FEAR and a need for IMMEDIATE ACTION. In many cases, we are better off taking a step “backward” to give ourselves a chance to clear our racing minds before proceeding with ANY course of care. It also gives us a chance to reflect on our past ATTITUDE […]
I THOUGHT MEDICAL DOCTOR’S KNEW?
What is a medical doctor’s education? It is an education based on a detailed curriculum that teaches the student the PATHWAY to evaluate disease and dysfunction and offer (in general) pharmaceutical means to deal with these conditions. An important component left out of this medical education is the LACK OF DETAILS to the pharmaceutical treatments […]
CHILDHOOD DISEASES: WORDS WITHOUT ACTIONS
How often do we hear statements like: . “I want my child to have a better life than I had growing up.” . OR “Our children are our future.” . We’d like to believe our heartfelt sentiments are more than just words, but do our ACTIONS reflect these emotions? . TYPE 1 AND TYPE 2 […]
50% OF WOMEN, 33% OF MEN WILL BE DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER. ARE YOU PREPARED TO MAKE THE BEST CHOICE OF TREATMENT?
Pretend the people standing in camouflage represent CANCER CELLS. Pretend the people kneeling in orange represent HEALTHY CELLS. If a powerful bomb was positioned as in this photograph and allowed to detonate, there is a good chance many (if not all) of the cancer cells would be destroyed. There is also a good chance that […]
IN SEARCH OF HONESTY
When it comes to our health, where can we find the one PERSON to turn to for an HONEST accurate answer? This is a flawed question because it presupposes one source is capable of providing an accurate HONEST answer all the time. It also excludes various mitigating factors that interfere with unbiased objective information used to […]
ENOUGH ALREADY! VACCINES ARE NOT ASSOCIATED WITH AUTISM; OR IS IT?
As President George Bush (Sr.) once stated, “read my lips, no new taxes.” There was never a doubt or a waiver in his voice. He was adamant, authoritative and unyielding in his delivery. One could walk away from this speech assured that only delusional Bush opponents would propagandize the possibility that new taxes would be […]
