LISTEN CLOSELY: Pills and injectables DO NOT CURE chronic diseases!
For sixty years, Martha Ann Lillard has lived with an iron lung to sustain life. An infectious disease overwhelmed her childhood immune system causing irreparable damage. This unfortunate outcome was not based on any personal lifestyle choices she made. Although she lives today, it is important to recognize that 60 years of iron lung therapy […]
PROOF THAT “SYMPTOM FREE” DISEASE IS KILLING US
When it comes to health, human nature seems to rely on SYMPTOMS. These tangible disruptions provide the proof we need in order to accept that something is wrong. This approach to health and disease supports ALL major industries including medical, agricultural, pharmaceutical and chemical. It does so by withholding factual truths from the consumer who […]
THE OVER REACTION RESPONSE
THIS POST IS 1100 WORDS. IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR HEALTH AND YOUR FAMILY’S HEALTH, I PROMISE YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED. Would you agree with me that selling a home and moving as a result of a backed up toilet would be an OVER REACTION RESPONSE? Sure, the annoyance/problem would no longer exist, but at […]
HOW WOULD I HANDLE BORDERLINE OR INTERMITTENT DISEASES/CONDITIONS versus YOUR DOCTOR?

Let’s look at a common […]
A DOCTOR CAN’T FIX………. WITH PRESCRIPTIONS
A doctor can’t fix HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE with prescriptions. A doctor’s prescription can FORCE the body’s blood vessels to (temporarily) relax reducing blood pressure. A doctor can FORCE the body to (temporarily) excrete more bodily fluids reducing blood pressure. …BUT THE UNDERLYING CAUSE OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE REMAINS UNFIXED… A doctor can’t fix DEPRESSION with prescriptions.

HELPING YOUR DOCTOR DETERMINE IF CHOLESTEROL MEDICATION IS NEEDED
The average patient assumes lab values are full of complicated data that only qualified physicians are capable of reading and understanding. With more than 43 million Americans taking cholesterol lowering drugs, do YOUR LAB VALUES show a REAL NEED based on the latest science, or are you being prescribed these medications to support the “HEALTH” […]
CHOOSING SIDES: United States. vs. Other Nations
When it comes to government regulatory agencies established to protect the consumer from harmful foods, chemicals and dyes/coloring how do U.S. standards compare with other nations?

“MOST AMERICANS ARE EATING BETTER…,” REALLY?
As important as a bed side manner may be, it doesn’t add to the quality or duration of life if the patient isn’t willing to listen and modify their attitude and behaviors. I preface this so the reader can prepare for a certain bluntness this article may convey. The title of this post is based […]
5 Diet Drugs: Which One’s Work?
This was the title of a recent Medline Publication that caught my attention. The answer is: ALL OF THEM and NONE OF THEM! . It all comes down to the word “WORKS” and how it is defined. These drugs are appetite suppressants. Just like any drug, their affects are stronger in some and weaker in […]
WHOSE JOB IS IT TO FIND CURES FOR CHRONIC DISEASES?
If someone asked you, “whose job is it to find cures for chronic diseases,” what would your answer be? Doctors? Pharmaceutical Companies? Researchers, Developers and Scientists? Most people probably believe at least one of these choices answers the question (if not a combination of these choices.) In this post, I’m going to try to convince […]
Type II Diabetes: Stop Thinking Sugar and Start Thinking Insulin!
Type II Diabetes may be a health concern for the growing population, but it is a “cash cow” for the pharmaceutical industry. This industry continues to develop new and “improved” drugs to lower blood sugar and lower A1C blood values. ISN’T THIS A GOOD THING? . Although it sounds like a good thing, type II […]
Prescription Medication: Weapons of Mass Deception
What if…. I told you the most prestigious medical peer review journals in the world are known to use GHOST WRITERS (well educated and skilled writers paid to write “research” studies with preconceived and possibly fabricated conclusions) to write medical studies proving the safety and efficacy of drugs? I told you the drug manufacturers solicit […]

UNDERSTANDING THE “BASS ACKWARD” PERSPECTIVE IN FOOD & DRUG ADVERTISING
Let’s make this simple! Let’s reduce health to two categories; FOOD and DRUGS. The fast food industry spends approximately: 4.2 BILLION in advertising to generate approximately 199 billion in sales. The pharmaceutical industry spends approximately: 30.5 BILLION dollars in advertising to generate approximately 1 trillion in sales. The largest health food chain (Whole Foods) spends […]

Health Options: Creating A Logical Order When Choosing A Doctor
You would think this topic would be simple, but the fact is, most people choose doctors without clearly thinking whether the doctor chosen is the best person to address the problem. If a person experiences tooth pain, they would likely schedule an appointment to see their dentist. This makes sense. If a person experienced productive […]
