Third Time Lucky?

In my last post I asked you how many times you have to read about how dangerous, how toxic allopathic drugs can be before you make the decision to switch to a safer, more effective form of medicine.

Today’s news, just breaking in the New York Times as I write this, is the most alarming yet.  Make sure to read the article on the business page of the Times.

That sometimes our pharmaceutical companies, while acting in good faith, accidentally produce a medication that proves, over time, to be more harmful than it is helpful is bad enough.  Not one patient, in my opinion, should ever be harmed, much less killed by the toxicity of a medication.
But when we find that a pharmaceutical company as large and wealth as GlaxoSmithKline has agreed to pay a $750 million dollar fine because it KNOWINGLY sold contaminated baby ointment and anti-depressants that the company KNEW were ineffective, isn’t it time to say ENOUGH?  How many capital letters do I have to resort to using before you will sit up, pay attention and DO SOMETHING?

The best possible something is to turn your attention away from allopathic medicine altogether before its too late.  Before you find that you have been taking a drug that turns out to be ineffective for some chronic or life-threatening disease, or worse, turns out to be more toxic to your system than the disease itself is or was.  (Hopefully is–hopefully it won’t be your surviving family members who make the discovery.)

Day after day in newspapers across the planet we are being told the same thing–that allopathic drugs are dangerous.  Some are dangerous in spite of the best intentions of the pharmaceutical companies.  Others are dangerous because of the complete distain that the same drug companies seem to feel for the consumers of their products.

It is usually considered bad business to kill off one’s clientele.  Perhaps the makers of allopathic drugs feel that they have a sufficiently large pool of customers that should a few thousand here and there fall prey either to their disease (thanks to the lack of effectiveness of their drugs) or as a result of the direct toxicity of the medicines themselves, well, others will take their place and doctors will continue to prescribe their pills and insurance companies will continue partially fund the process.

The change has to come from the grassroots level.  It has to begin with you and me.  We have to learn to say NO.  We have to seek and find another better form of medicine.  One that offers safe and effective treatments.  Why would we settle for anything less.

Read a book.  Learn about something new, different and better.  And, in the meantime, just say NO.

Is Sally Field Trying to Snap Your Bones Like Twigs?


Hey, I’m not one to say, “I told you so,” but I have been telling you this for thirty years now.

Now the New York Times is telling you so as well.

Allopathic drugs are not safe.  Every allopathic treatment comes at a price.  Sometimes the price is fairly simple–the suppression of symptoms that will, over time, reemerge, because they have not been healed, only shoved more deeply into the system, until they seem to disappear.  But only temporarily, only for a time.  Allopathic medicine, from cold medicine on, is all about getting to pretend you are not sick when you are, all without actually doing anything to actually bring about a cure.  Read, learn, and then choose your best path to health.

Other times, when the illnesses are more serious, when they are chronic or even life-threatening, like those discussed in the Times’ article, the price of allopathic treatment is much too high.  Allopathic drugs for osteoporosis that cause bones to snap.  Allopathic drugs for diabetes that cause heart failure.  This is medicine?  This is healing?

“Skeptics” (and, oh, how I hate that term–how can you call yourself a skeptic when you made up your mind on the subject years ago?) are quick to say that homeopathic remedies have no therapeutic benefit whatsoever–that they “cure” by placebo effect.

Let’s think about this for a second.  Even if that were the case–and it is not, homeopathic remedies are not only safe to use but very effective when used appropriately–wouldn’t it be better and safer in the long run to be treated by a placebo than by a toxin?  For all those whose bones snapped because they listened to Sally Field, wouldn’t you have been better off by doing NOTHING than by taking a drug whose “side effect” is to cause the very ailment that the pill is supposed to prevent?  And for those who sadly died of a heart attack, quickly and suddenly, that was caused by the drug that they took to treat their diabetes, well, what can you say except the thing that the allopaths always say when the patient dies:  “We did all we could.”  Indeed, once again, the allopaths have done all that they possibly could have–they killed the patient once more with the treatment that was supposed to have cured him.

Just this once, as it is Saturday and it’s been a long week, I will not rail at length against the FDA, an agency that continually sells us down the river to the pharmaceutical companies that release these drugs and that profit from the deaths of the consumers these drugs and an agency that, on the other hand, is ever suspicious of natural and safe forms of medical treatment from which there are not gigantic profits to be made.  (See my past post for details. This one was good, too.)  Suffice it to say that the FDA is on the job, as ever.

Had enough of medicine that kills instead of cures?  Had enough of the politics of healing?  When it comes to healing–to getting totally well, it’s time for a change.
