Medical quotes "We did the best we could... We can't recommend Chiropractic care because we 'don't know' what kind of harm they may cause. Research shows that supplements are dangerous. Research shows that drugs are effective and 'well tolerated' The medical profession deserves the public's trust"
and they believe every word they say! Philosophy matters. Conservative, natural care has actually been defined by MDs as doing nothing. If you believe that drugs and surgery are the only solutions, then, what else do you have?

I think I have a pretty good doc. He says the best lecture he ever received in Med School was from the Dean on his first day:
“A little over 50% of the cases you are presented with will solve themselves with no intervention. About 10% of the cases you are presented with have no solution, and the patient will die, though we are all working hard to reduce that percentage. The other approximately 30% to 40% of the cases are where the application of your skills actually matter. The art of medicine is to know in which category the patient in front of you falls.”
Too many once trusted institutions have become blatantly self serving and corrupt and they’re now entangled with those who make the laws, those who regulate, and those who report it in the media.
There is cronyism at the highest levels. They own Congress and others and there are no longer checks and balances. Too big to fail was the result, and the result of blind support for mega sized global business that lacks competition and loyalty to the USA.
Let’s see if I have this straight.
It seems to me that so many of the drugs treat problems or their symptoms, but not fix them.
I know that I am probably in dream land, but it would be nice to see some drugs actually resolve the medical issue that they are treating.
Vitamin C cures scurvy, not just treating it.
Thank God the First Amendment only applies to the government giving it infinite negative rights or parasitic bureaucrats wouldn't be able to tell people what they can and cannot say under color of law.
My doc and I are good friends and are both very skeptical of the system. He suggested the movie “Burzynski”.
We have a market system in healthcare where innovation competes, but is hindered by entrenched interests that profit from existing arrangements. That is somewhat true in every business segment, but no where is it more true than in healthcare, where cures and innovation are critical, and where the big boys control the regulators and market access and stymie solutions.
What do you imagine would happen if someone discovered that a non-patentable, natural alternative pill cured cancer? The industry would pull every legal and political maneuver to have it outlawed as a danger. That’s what they would do.
Interesting article about raw milk at site
Hospitals kill about 120,000 people per year of problems they didn’t go in there for. Shouldn’t we get rid of all hospitals?

And because the FDA exists it becomes easy to corrupt and use to squelsh competition.
Now let me see.... The TV channels are brimming over with all of the ‘good’ side effects of the medicines they have been passing off on us lately. The law firms are having a field day with this drugs. Have a headache? Some of these drugs will cure you permanently...dead! Can’t sleep? Try this one you’ll sleep forever!
The body, if given the chance, can heal itself over time. The best part of caring for yourself is prevention and not letting yourself get physically run down.
I take vitamins and supplements because they work for me. Living in the Pacfic Northwest, where sunshine is at a minimum most of the year due to heavy cloudcover, I take vitamin D3.
The result of taking D3 at 4000 IUs per day for the past 5 years is I’ve had neither a head cold, respiratory problem, nor influenza. As a person who has experienced pneumonia five times in her life, it is nice to know I’ve some means of preventing the very conditions that weaken one’s immunity to an infection like pneumonia.
Your body can only do its job if given the proper nutrition.
There is no money to made in a pill that you take once and cures you.
There is lots of money to be made in drugs that you take every day for the rest of your life.
It doesn't matter if they actually work, just as long as a clinical lab got to make money "proving" that they do, and the FDA got to make money "inspecting."
I agree - so much money to be made in treatments instead of cures.
The (blessed) free market, which I support whole-heartedly, sells hundreds of tons of junk food every year. The over-the-counter drug industry sells millions of doses of laxatives, antacids and other stomach medicaments every year. It’s actually almost comical but consuming the equivalent of a cup or two of fresh fruit or vegetable every day will solve most of these issues and it’s way cheaper than junk food or pills. Tastes better too and you’ll lose weight and lower cholesterol.
“And because the FDA exists it becomes easy to corrupt and use to squelch competition.”
The free market is the cure all but it will never happen when politicians are owned, and lobbyists thrive, and the MSM always gets rewarded by both.
I personally believe we need a free market and a level of govt. regulation for trust and verify. I don’t trust the profit motive to create totally honest corporations in the short term. In the long term it will always catch up.
Just like real estate agents, they will represent only those who pay their bills. Regulators must be paid by the taxpayers, unless we choose not to have regulation or oversight. Voters need to have that choice, not owned politicians.
BTW corruption is embedded in both Parties. Both are owned and taxpayers are had, and America suffers.
Honesty and ethics can not be legislated but incentives can.
