The Road To Good Health

May 29, 2012 by  

Healthcare in America is actually deathcare. It’s a big-dollar racket that fosters unnecessary pain, suffering and death.

Physicians are said to be practicing medicine. They’re always practicing and rarely getting it right. This is partly because of the chemical agents of death created by the pharmaceutical companies — and endorsed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — which are always seeking a “cure” for the latest disease: seeking but never finding. Physicians are brainwashed by their pharmaceutical cartel-controlled medical schools and bought off by drug manufacturers.

Organized medicine is the third-leading cause of death in America. Drug companies rush new money-making medications to market before they’re fully tested for safety and/or ignore or cover up harmful side effects. Doctors recommend unnecessary (and possibly life-threatening) tests and surgeries. Hospitals administer the wrong medicine or the wrong doses or operate on the wrong patient. Doctors prescribe medicines that conflict with other medicines the patient is taking or that are not recommended for the ailment from which the patient suffers. Pharmacies commit dangerous errors in filling prescriptions.

Healthcare should be called symptomology, as the goal of organized medicine is to treat the symptoms rather than the cause of the disease.

Health is achieved through proper diet and exercise. A diet of natural — not processed — foods, particularly organically grown foods, is the road to good health and a happy life.

Eliminate processed foods and foods containing high fructose corn syrup and chemical additives from your diet. Consume primarily fresh — preferably raw — vegetables. Supplement with small amounts of fish and free-range chicken and beef and natural supplements of vitamin D.

    Perhaps you should actually go to medical school and learn physiology and pharmacology before you speak about how ‘brainwashed’ physicians are in America. You have no idea what you are talking about, other than the fact that people should eat healthy and exercise. But until this happens all over the nation (and it never will), we have to treat the symptoms of diseases like high blood pressure and heart disease, because the only cure for them is to go back in time and slap the donuts and cigarettes out of a person’s mouth and put them on a treadmill. Until we invent time travel to improve human health, or until you decide to actually learn some real science and can do more than make blanket statements with no references or studies to back them up, please stop talking and brainwashing weaker minds.

      Dear ActualDoctor,

      Your response is typical of one who has been “educated” beyond his intelligence. You write: “You have no idea what you are talking about, other than the fact that people should eat healthy and exercise. But until this happens all over the nation (and it never will), we have to treat the symptoms of diseases like high blood pressure and heart disease, because the only cure for them is to go back in time and slap the donuts and cigarettes out of a person’s mouth and put them on a treadmill.” The human body is perfectly capable of healing itself once the harmful practices are eliminated. Treating symptoms does not cure the illness; it merely masks the symptoms.

      Best wishes,
      Bob

        Dear Bob,

        First of all, it’s incredibly sexist to assume I’m male. Secondly, please tell me how stopping smoking after 30 years will allow fibrosed, destroyed lungs to once again function. Tell me how changed to a vegan diet will unclog a 90% occluded coronary artery. Tell me how diet and exercise can lower the blood pressure of a person who is 270/180. Tell me how a person who is hypothyroid and can barely function should just eat berries or have a healthier diet instead of taking ‘poisonous’ thyroid replacement therapy. Also, please tell me what special offending agent you can remove to make the body get rid of a cancer which it originally grew. Once cancer has started, you must remove it, irradiate it, or chemically kill it (sometimes all 3).

        Furthermore, it seems that most people on this forum believe that cancer is one disease and therefore has one cure and one medication should be enough. Let me make this perfectly clear: every cancer is different, has different gene expression levels, different mutations, and different responses to the many medications the medical community has developed. There is no one cure. It doesn’t work that way, and until you understand the molecular, physiological, and phenotypic changes which occur in each cancer, please don’t lecture me about one personal experience which you think qualifies you more than a doctor with years of training and actual understanding of every aspect of the disease.

    Perhaps actual doctors should send their patients home with an organic food diet, exercise plan, whole food supplements, etc., that support the body instead of a host of toxic chemicals that have the potential to create more dis-ease. There are far better alternatives to not just treat – but cure health issues rather than further loading the body down with elements that deter it’s own healing processes. There are true healing facilities such as the Gerson Institute (San Diego), Hippocrates Institute (Florida), Budwig Center (Spain), and Dr. Burzynski’s Health Center (Texas) – - just to name a few – who are actually CURING PEOPLE and putting them on the path to managing their health – instead of managing their dis-ease. I manage my health with clean unadulterated organic foods/beverages, whole food supplements, superfoods, herbs, Ayurvedic medicinals, aromatherapy, homeopathy, organic toiletries (everything that goes on the skin goes in), moderate sunbathing without sunscreens, epsom/sea salt baths, Palma Christi Packs (from Edgar Cayce’s treatments), Master Mineral Solution (MMS) a powerful pathogen biocide founded by Jim Humble, etc. In my opinion, a few hours of nutritional education within the western medical training does not give doctors the knowledge they need to restore health to an individual. My mom died from the horrible cancer treatments of western medicine – I wouldn’t wish that slash & burn “treatment” on anyone. I’ll never forget how frightened she was going through that horror. So many technologies (health, energy, education, agriculture) have been suppressed to allow the status quo to maintain their dominion over others, but I believe that old paradigm is about to shift – - big time. Mankind is awakening.

    • ActualDoctor

      Please know from the start, that I mean no disrespect. But the fact is that once some disease processes begin, they must be treated because they are, in fact, irreversible. Can you reverse early type II diabetes with diet and exercise? Yes. Can you reverse high blood pressure from years of high salt diets and smoking? No. The pressure receptors in your carotid arteries and aortic arch are stretched out and will not return to normal. Your new ‘normal barometer’ is now set too high, and without medication, you physically cannot lower it enough to be effective with diet alone. It’s a physiological impossibility because they body is now changed. This higher blood pressure now causes end-organ damage to the kidneys, heart, brain, etc because the blood vessels cannot deal with constant high pressure. Finally, the heart enlarges to compensate, and someone is in heart failure and required further medication, because heart failure cannot be reversed, only slowed with medications.

      Regarding cancer, there are several new, less invasive methods currently under study. For now, we do the best with what we can. People rarely die from the treatments, but infact actually die from disseminated cancer. They don’t waste away just from chemo and radiation, as most people believe, but instead they actually lose so much weight and are incredibly weakened from a cancer-caused phenomenon called cachexia (source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3292798). And if you truly believe that fruit juice solutions like at the Gerson Institution can actually stop cancer, you are woefully ignorant on the subject. I suggest actually studying it before making statements on holistic healing. Would I recommend a healthy diet and exercise to a patient? Of course, but without certain modern medications, there is no possibility of recovery. None.

      In response to your belief that doctors in western medicine only receive a few hours of nutritional training, well that’s just flat out incorrect. We are trained on metabolism, physiology, and biomechanics from a molecular level all the way up to how it influences an organ system and the body as a whole. Also, it sounds as if you are pitching products on here. I’d stay away from that.

      • Ladyhawke

        First, do no harm. Well, oncologists violate that part of the Hippocratic oath every day. You are so wrong about the treatment not killing the patients. They do. The whole point of “cancer therapy” is to “kill the cancer before you kill the patient”. Gives me a whole lot of faith, not. That is why the drugs go by names like “red death”. You will all go to sheoul with Satan for what you do to humans.

    One last thing – I encourage everyone to view the new documentary THRIVE by Foster Gamble (of the Proctor & Gamble family). It can be viewed in full at this link: http://www.thrivemovement.com. It will definitely open your minds.

    • EyesWideOPEN

      Yep, I viewed this a few days ago and placed a copy on my website.. Problem with it all is there’s too many people willing to continue to accept the butt end of the turd so long as they continue to be catered to by those villains.. It takes a lot of effort to begin a peaceful revolution and most are asleep or too ignorant to rid themselves of that ‘sheeple’ tattoo branded on their forehead. Maybe with more readers, more viewers, more incentive will their eyes become clear.. Maybe my site will contribute to the cause.. I cross my fingers.

  • NotARealDoctor

    The “Real Doctor” mentions “studies.” I wonder if Dr. Real has ever actually checked out any REAL “studies” for himself which were NOT done by some government institution, be it the FDA, WHO, or even the government indoctrinated medical school that he attended with the large percentage of Progressive Liberal teachers, who are no more than an extension of government philosophy and government will. I would guess that Dr. Real himself does not even realize that he has been brainwashed, (few “doctors” do). I would ask Dr. Real to actually check out the results of alternative, natural, medicine for himself, and stop believing the so called highly biased “studies” of government here say.

    • ActualDoctor

      I’m not surprised that someone like you has no use for actual facts. I guess when you have a heart attack, you should just drink a health shake and go for a walk instead of going to a ‘government brain-washed’ hospital where they have doctors who use treatments based on supposedly faked government studies that will actually save your life. You go have fun with your conspiracy theories while you have that health shake that will help you more than a cardiac catheter,I’m sure. You seem to be so well trained medically, so I guess you should just never go to a physician again because you know so much more than the scientific community.

  • NotARealDoctor

    I mean no disrespect to REAL DOCTOR either, but it’s just that I find that most “doctors” today are very narrow minded when it comes to alternative/natural medicine and their first, and sometimes only, answer to a medical problem is to prescribe FDA approved “chemicals” to their patients for which the side effects are many times worse than the original disease, in which case the patient returns to the doctor complaining about the side effects of the prescribed “medicine,” in which case the doctor prescribes MORE chemicals. This process can go on until it literally kills the patient. When my mother passed away, the doctor had her taking something like 15 different medicines per day. This is ridiculous, not to mention dangerous.

  • Bev G

    Gee Real Doctor I am amazed that you know so little about the body healing itself with the right tools. Let me remind you that most disease is caused by what we put in our body. So if bad food can make you sick, healthy food can make you better. Let me get this straight: : you and the FDA are right and Dr. Julian Whitaker and other M.D’s that treat people naturally are wrong. Guess you didn’t get the news that Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize of Medicine for discovering that cancer and other disease cannot thrive in an alkaline, oxygenated body in 1931 or that 3 doctors from the U..S also won the nobel prize in 1998 for discovering that nitric oxide is the SIgnalling Molecule for the cardiovascular system and that L-arginine is the precusor for the nitric oxide. Stanford University is at the top for this research and also Dr. Joseph Prendergast is the formulator for a product based on the 3 doctor findings that literally reverses cardiovascular disease. In fact one of those 3 doctors wrote a book called, No More Heart Disease by Dr Louis Ignarro. I would not want you or any of the practicing doctors to touch me if you can’t learn the very basics first

    • ActualDoctor

      I have extensive knowledge about the signalling cascade for NO and its effects on vascular smooth muscle, as well as atherosclerotic plaques. It’s so basic that it’s taught in first year medical school.

      Yes, please inform me about how genetic abnormalities are caused by the food someone ate. Or how a bum knee which needs surgical correction could have been avoided by eating more carrots. Your claims are so broad and so unscientifically supported, that they are literally laughable to anyone with a scientific education. You seem to be touting that your ignorance is just as good as my science and knowledge. It is not. You have no studies, no proof, and no education to even discuss this well. The difference between you and scientific community is that the scientific community is wiling to change its opinion based on scientific proof and facts, while you are making your opinion in spite of them.

      Before you start talking to me about an alkaline, oxygenated body, please go learn about acid/base disturbances in the body and exactly what it takes to make the body, “alkaline’, plus how long you can survive as such (seriously, go ahead and hyperventilate for the next four hours and tell me how great you feel to be cancer free).

      Dr. Julian Whitaker is a scam artist who is trying to sell you his products. How is that any different than the supposedly evil pharmaceutical companies who have actual evidence based on scientific studies to back their claims? Oh wait, it’s different because FDA approved drugs are made based on actual scientific studies.

      And since you don’t want me or any other doctor to touch you, please stop vaccinating your children and don’t ever get a flu shot. Also, if you have chest pains, stay at home and eat an apple and take a vitamin. The less people like you out there spreading ignorance and psuedoscience, the better it will be for those of us who like to use facts and rational thinking to make our decisions instead of attacking the very people who devote their lives to saving yours. But I guess I’m just a brainwashed drone who doesn’t know anything, since i haven’t spent all my time and money on websites whose only evidence is their own website. Good research, buddy.

  • ActualDoctor

    Dear Bob,

    Not one of those is from a scientifically peer-reviewed source. There is no credibility. Show me something from a scientific journal, which is written by and reviewed by actual qualified members of the scientific community, and I will gladly read them with an open mind.

    • http://boblivingstonpl.wordpress.com Bob Livingston

      Dear ActualDoctor,

      So-called “peer-reviewed” sources bear little credibility. http://personalliberty.com/2010/10/11/the-ghosts-of-big-pharma/

        Dear Bob,

        I am truly astounded that you keep using this site, written by one extremist, as your ‘reference’. It isn’t based on fact. I could write my own site with all kinds of stupid things, and use other pages of my site to reference them. It doesn’t make any of it true or verifiable. Using a little known, unsupported source takes away and credibility you have. This site doesn’t even use references. Saying an article or a study says something without giving an actual link or way to find that source, as is done on Personal Liberty all the time, is worth absolutely nothing. Find an actual source citing actual papers (not just saying, ‘hey, I read this, but can’t seem to annotate it with the source’), and I will indeed read it.

        Best,
        Doc

      • http://boblivingstonpl.wordpress.com Bob Livingston

        Dear ActualDoctor,

        You write: “I am truly astounded that you keep using this site, written by one extremist, as your ‘reference’. It isn’t based on fact.” I am truly astounded at your comprehension skills and question how you were able to make it through your medical indoctrination. By the term, this “site, written by one extremist” I assume you mean the link I provided. It’s a link to Personal Liberty and I am the “extremist” who wrote it. I wrote it citing a study of court documents examined by The Public Library of Science and published in their journal PLoS Medicine. It documented “non-evidence-based perception…the result of decades of carefully orchestrated corporate influence on medical literature.” So am I to understand that the journal of PLoS and evidentiary documents filed on behalf of 14,000 plaintiffs is neither “true” or “verifiable?”

        In a previous post I linked a number articles (some written by physicians) to back up my arguments. All of my articles contained sources. These you dismissed out of hand. I’m afraid your brainwashing is cast in concrete. My diagnosis is that you suffer from a severe case of cognitive dissonance, a haughty attitude and a huge shoulder chip.

        Best wishes,
        Bob

        So, A.D.. I’ve got this balloon type feeling on the inside left side of my body.. Care to give me some ‘FREE’ advice as to what it might be? (no reference to other medical institutions or doctors accepted).. Or am I asking too much?

  • ActualDoctor

    Dear Bob,

    Please learn how proper citations work, and perhaps educated people will believe you.

    Jerry,

    Sorry, my malpractice insurance doesn’t cover patients who try to bait me online.

    Bob,

    May I say that although I may disagree with you fervently, I respect your right to think and speak however you want. I think you are wrong, and you think I am wrong, and at that I’ll leave your site because it seems that we shall never see eye to eye.

    Furthermore, we’ve resorted to belittling each other, and that’s hardly constructive. I wish you the best, and hope all goes well with you. If you’d like to have an actual discussion again some time, let me know. I promise no name calling.

    Best,
    Doc

  • JJM

    We get to hear all the cure claims in ads and then dozens of harmful potential side effects. Scares me from even considering any new drug!!!
    And then we are not allowed to hear of all the health benefits from God’s, Mother Nature pharmacy.

  • Russ Wiles

    Seems like we have a need for an integrative medicine arbiter. So sad that the allopathic gang doesn’t want to play nice with the alternative docs. Wonder what real doc thinks about his beloved USDA folks who think pink slime floor scraps is OK for our school kids as long as it doesn’t exceed 15% of the ground beef makeup. Yuck, even MacDonalds has said, no way to this junk. Hmmm, gotta make sure allopathic arteriosclerotic meds and surgery don’t diminish. So sad we can’t get the two disciplines to get along. Of course, how do we end the incestuous relationships with big pharma and our beloved govt?

  • mtman2

    I believe STATIN drugs were approved by the “FDA”, along with a multitude of other chems. Taken by trusting souls [as always never doing their own research], but hopeful that “medical people” know + will do whats best for them. WRONG! People who build a machine or mechanism can diagnose + repair or rebuild it. It’s why we have mechanics + repair shops{plumbers, carpenters, etc.+ etc.] Even they have troubles with known manmade , fairly simple “creations”. The human body if it where to be tallied for the number of highly complicated functions[w/interactions] in a list would number in the billions[yes w/a B]. It’s beyond comprehension. We and all the world around us are such an astounding “miracle” as to be a dream. So we who are “asleep” to this live in “blindness” , and are pretty much thankless as well. The so called learned among us have become a god to themselves hence to others. This misses the real point… David said in PSALM 139:13-16 “for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works”. Throughout the world even aboriginal people knew there was a CREATOR. LIFE is unfathomable, inscrutable, and beyond human conception. We are ever learning just how complicated it is, never arriving at the true miracle of it. Just look into the eyes of your just born child + not think miracle! Truth is where -U- find it, the best truth is worth the effort. The natural world has many healing secrets to show us with the help of science[systematic study for facts+ laws of nature]. It would be the height of arrogance to think any of us of only human intellect {even Einsteins} to say ” we have all the answers”. Only discoveries are relevant + we’ve only scratched the surface if we would realized it, so much is ahead of us. Limiting our outlook by elitist or self serving individuals /organizations is not serving the greater good in the short or long run for mankind… Not $ but “the love of $ is the root of all evil”. Medicine in the U.S. must transition to a far more useful compilation for real health + affordability. Just like our tax system, + various “bureaucratic” agencies{local,county,state+ federal};legal system{check tort laws}. This will take dedicated voters over time. The “revolution” is set up for us every 2-4-+6 years. We need to show up…
