IF ANTIBIOTICS STOP WORKING

FATIGUE

FALSE AND HIDDEN MEDICAL INFORMATION

WHY ARE THERE DRUG SIDE EFFECTS?


WHAT IF ANTIBIOTICS STOP WORKING?

 

It's already happened: there are a growing number of bacteria that no longer respond easily to antibiotics. Some bacteria, 
like MRSA, found in many hospitals, are resistant to almost all antibiotics. Knowing the reason for their resistance, and 
we now do, is not going to make it any easier to treat these increasingly menacing diseases.

Very simply, we're running out of safe, effective antibiotics.

But there are other, little known disease treatments that are now being asked for by some patients, but these treatments 
are not accepted by the Western medical establishment.

Ayurvedic herbs, used by millions in India.

Colloidal silver, used to disinfect hospital surfaces but denied to patients.

Hydrogen peroxide (but don't drink it) used by some doctors, and it has a proven track record.

Blue light, that has been found to kill MRSA, but doctors laugh at the idea that plain light kills.

Homeopathy, that saved thousands during the 1918 flu epidemic. Science” says it can't possible work.


My growing list of books will introduce you to alternative treatments that Western medicine, and the U.S. FDA, will 
not recommend but which are part of the medical kit of doctors and alternative healers in many other countries.

FATIGUE

 

Do you find that you often reach an energy drain some time during the day?  Here are 10 ways to beat that fatigue without the negatives of an
energy drink or a caffeine fix:

 

Start your day with a bright wake-up call by snapping out of bed and getting to the brightest window in the house for a couple of
minutes.  That sends an energy signal to your brain that will last quite some time.

Take a mid-day break in the sun for a few minutes.

Take a ten minute walk, whether it’s sunny or not.

Drink a glass of water.  Fatigue is one sign of dehydration.

Try Accupressure on yourself: squeeze the loose skin between your thumb and forefinger, or massage the base of your skull and the
front of your shins.

At lunchtime, stay away from high-fat foods.  Your body needs to work hard to digest them, and that drains your energy.

Take a tea break (NOT coffee).  All teas contain L-theanine, an energizing protein.

If you can, take a cat nap.  Even a twenty minute nap will keep you alert for quite some time.

If the nap doesn’t help, have a cup of coffee and THEN splash some cool water on your face. 

Plan your day.  When you’ve accomplished one of your listed tasks, take a minute to congratulate yourself.  That self-praise will
increase your endorphins.

 

        Here's to your improved and continued good health!

FALSE AND HIDDEN MEDICAL INFORMATION


Is medicine in the United States as good as the media and the industry would have us believe?  It’s true that we have developed the largest part of the advanced medical devices and procedures employed today.  The U.S. continues to be, for especially difficult conditions, the preferred medical destination for those who have the financial ability to command these treatments.  But what about the rest of us?

 

There are in excess of 300 English-language medical journals.  France, Germany, Italy, Canada, China, Japan, Russia and others publish medical journals in their home languages, often un-translated or with only summaries in English.   How can our doctors keep up with so much information to find the breakthrough treatments their patients expect?

 

Opposition to alternative medical arts still exists in the U.S.  Most medical schools do not teach alternative care of the kinds welcomed by hundreds of millions of people around the world for as long as 4,000 years.  It took a law suit against the American Medical Association, finally settled in 1990, to allow chiropractic to be accepted as a valid medical art by state licensing boards and insurance companies.  Licensing of acupuncturists still is lacking in six states, and generally is not covered by insurance.

 

What about drugs?  Does your doctor always prescribe the best one for you?  In 2012 GlaxoSmithKline was fined $3billion for bribing doctors to prescribe unsuitable antidepressants to children.  In 2009 Merck admitted they paid almost $19million over just half of that year to medical doctors to speak favorably about their pills and vaccines.

 

 

Alternative medicine, complementary medicine, and herbs are subjects that Western medicine still is in denial about.  But many good books now are available (including my own) that can make you aware of what alternative medical arts are available to you that you should discuss with your doctor should the need arise.

WHY ARE THERE DRUG SIDE EFFECTS?

 

Medicine has become so complicated and doctors so specialized that often we have to see a series of specialists and have a barrage of tests

before we can get treated.  Too many doctors have forgotten that the body is not just a series of independent parts. 

 

Remove a hand and it won't function on its own.  Remove the thyroid gland and the body slows down and eventually will die.  Many

of us have experienced sciatica, with its severe pain and/or numbness going down the leg to the knee or foot.  But the problem is not

in the foot or knee.  It is with a nerve at the spine.  Clearly, what happens in one part of the body can affect other parts.

 

Drugs also are not so simple.  The cardiologist will prescribe a drug for a heart arrhythmia.  The rheumatologist will prescribe a drug for

joint pain.  The endocrinologist will prescribe a drug for osteoporosis.  BUT, there is virtually no drug that has only one single action in the

body.  Let’s see how that works with statin drugs, which are prescribed only to lower cholesterol:

 

70% of the body’s cholesterol is made by the liver in a series of chemical steps.  Statin drugs prevent the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase

from completing one of these steps.  But, the chemical that was created up to that point now accumulates in the liver and is toxic at

high levels.

 

When a statin drug blocks HMG-CoA reductase to block cholesterol this also blocks the body’s production of coenzyme Q10 and

vitamin D.  This can produce such side effects as severe muscle weakness (including the heart) and elevated liver enzymes.  Among

other side effects produced with long-term use of statins are cataracts and diabetes. 

 

Now you know why we’re sometimes given a list of side effects to be aware of when the treatment advised is a drug.  And some of these

side effects can be lethal!  Here are some common drug side effects:

 

Paxil – chest pains, difficulty breathing

Warfarin – internal bleeding

Viagra – bladder pain, convulsions

Selacryn - liver and kidney damage, death

Tamoxifen – blood clots, liver cancer

 

Be a wise prescription drug consumer.  Whenever you are prescribed a drug you should ask these questions at a minimum:

 

·       What are the most likely side effects and how likely are they to happen?

·       What is the mechanism that enables this drug to work for the condition being treated?

·       What effects will this mechanism have on other activities in the body that are not so obvious (remember how much hidden damage
a statin’s mechanism can cause)?

·       What other treatment or drug options are there?

o      …and then ask these same questions again.
