TFF World Premiere, 'Warning: This Drug May Kill You,' Directed by Perri Peltz

(L-R) Perri Peltz and Producer Sascha Weiss, TFF World Premiere, 'Warning: This Drug May Kill You' (Carole Di Tosti)
 One year and one-half ago, Sheila Nevins (President of HBO Documentary Films), asked a vital question of friend Perri Peltz. "Why are so many young people overdosing. Is this drug abuse or something else?" At the time the numbers were around 72 people-a-day passing out on the streets, in buildings, in their homes, going into comas and dying from a self-poisoning drug overdose.

For an investigative reporter like Perri Peltz, the question had tremendous import. It seemed that she and others she spoke to knew of someone's relative or child or neighbor or friend or friend of a friend's family member who had overdosed. So she decided to investigate and what she discovered was profound. It upended any preconceptions of the demographic of individuals who were overdosing and the families who were living with the trauma and torment of wondering what they might have done to save the lives of loved ones who had died.

 The film journey took Perri Peltz and her team into the homes of middle class Americans. They were the antithesis of former stereotypes of drug users, abusers and/or dealers. Interestingly, there was one factor in common. Their addiction to opioids and "upgrade" into heroin began with a hospital or doctor's visit prompted by a car accident, a physical fall, a back injury or other pain related trauma. Their drug dealer was not a scruffy, surreptitious, back alley miscreant. It was their medical school educated doctor/general practioner who believed Purdue Pharmaceuticals' aggressive promotional campaign that narcotic painkiller OxyContin because of its time release design was not addictive, but in its new form could be used to safely eradicate pain and allow individuals to function in their complete capacity of wellness.

Nothing was or is farther from the truth. In a 2007 settlement Purdue Pharma executives admitted culpability and pleaded guilty to "misbranding" or not appropriately warning users of the deleterious addictive properties of OxyContin: made of the pure narcotic oxycodone, that contains a large amount of the opiate in each tablet because of the time-release design. Did sales representatives and executives gauge the risk-reward ratio? Did they consider that by the time doctors and families of patients realized the unrelenting addictive properties of OxyContin and sued, the company could still be ahead of the game, reaping tremendous profits after any monetary settlements? Perhaps not, though this has indeed been the case.

 The product was heavily marketed for six years. In 1996 alone, annual sales reached $1 billion.Perhaps profit wasn't a motive after all, and the promotion that led to the incredible drug sales was not an intentional move by the company to addict and endanger users. However, with the over-prescription of opioids by doctors and the increase of opioid overdose deaths to epidemic proportions, that is a moot point. People are dying of self-poisoning. And this very important film that aired on HBO Monday evening, 1 May, may give those who see it pause, if/when their doctor attempts to over-prescribe an opiate like Oxycodone (such as OxyContin®) or Hydrocodone (such as Vicodin®).

 Peltz removes any notion that opioid addiction that morphs to heroin addiction happens to "the other guy or gal." With a clear, cogent and unremitting perspective, she identifies four families who were tragically and fatefully seduced by events that appeared to be benign. A daughter (who was a wife and mother) had kidney stones and was in terrific pain. She gave her medications to her sister who became addicted as she herself became addicted. A beautiful wife and mother in her forties was prescribed opioids after an initial hospital visit; she became addicted. A son was prescribed opioids after surgery to remove a cyst; he became addicted. A daughter was prescribed opioids after she fell and had hip and back pain; she became addicted.

In each instance, Peltz follows family members as they discuss the growing arc from doctor to over-prescription to ending prescription to "graduation" into seeking more and more pills. In four instances out of the five patients, individuals moved into heroin addiction when the prescriptions stopped. Heroin delivers the same effects and it is cheaper. In the instance of the beautiful wife and mother (the husband eventually had to divorce her), her addiction prompted her to physically injure herself to obtain opioid prescriptions from various doctors who complied with her persuasive pleas for narcotic painkillers.

 With heartfelt empathy Peltz examines each of the stories using family and medical testimony, interviews, family photographs and videos, and poignant discussions. She shows how the families were sideswiped into awareness that a nefarious drug was in their midst and it had taken over the soul, body and mind of their loved ones. Though in each instance there was rehabilitation numerous times, there was also relapse.

Only in one instance that Peltz illuminates, is the individual now on the road to recovery and there is light at the end of the long tunnel of addiction. However, the other four patients who began on prescriptions of opiates never were released from the narcotic's hold over them. They poisoned themselves as they attempted to satisfy the great hunger that the opiate increasingly inured them to. They died and are mourned. And this film tells their story in the hope of preventing one more death from opiate overdose.
Jane Rosenthal, Co-Founder/Executive Chair, Tribeca Enterprises, Red Carpet, 'Warning: This Drug May Kill You' (Carole Di Tosti)
 In a Q and A after the film screening, Dr. Andrew Kolodny (Co-Director of Opioid Policy Research Collaborative Brandeis University), Gail Cole (film subject and co-founder, Hope and Healing After an Addiction Death) and others discussed that because of its incredibly addictive side-effects, OxyCotin and other opioids must be prescribed circumspectly. Their most effective use is at end-of-life or other long-term pain conditions. Such examples they gave are unlike the prescription examples for the patients identified in the film who became addicted, then overdosed and died.

Peltz reveals in the title and throughout the film that doctors' inappropriate over-prescription is a hazard. The probability of over-prescription leading to possible self-poisoning by patients along a journey of addiction should not be risked or even entertained. This was further given credence to the announcement Peltz made after the World Premiere of Warning: This Drug May Kill You, that the epidemic numbers of opioid overdose are now higher than 91 deaths-a-day.

This is a monumental film that touches all of our lives whether we recognize it or not. With knowledge comes power and the ability for patients and families to question their doctors about over-prescription of opiates, if the occasion arises. Doctors are also becoming aware of the epidemic and are over-prescribing much less. Advocacy and support of families who are struggling up the long hill of a family member's opiate addiction is an imperative.

'VAXXED:' The Tribeca Film Festival Entry That Dropped Off the Map and Into the Public's Hearts

By now, those who are connected with Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal's Tribeca Film Festival, including journalists, ticketholders, sponsors, filmmakers, celebrities and others have learned how Robert De Niro was pressured to cancel showing the documentary Vaxxed From Cover-up to Catastrophe. Notification of the film has been disappeared from the Tribeca Film Festival and all those working at the festival must disavow any prior involvement in Vaxxed- that such a film exists and is being shown in NYC.
Tribeca FF guide

What's the fuss? At the heart of the film now being shown at Angelika Film Center in New York City and elsewhere is the MMR vaccine. The problem? The film features a CDC whistleblower (Dr. William Thompson, a former Merck scientist who became a senior epidemiologist at the CDC’s Immunization Safety department in 1997). Dr. Thompson in a phone conversation states that the research investigating the MMR vaccine was falsely reported. The whistleblower indicates that the research was skewed. Skewed how? It was skewed to deny that there is a causal relationship between the vaccine and autisim.  
According to the CDC whistleblower there is an increased incidence of those who have been given the MMR vaccine and autism. Does every child vaccinated with the vaccine MMR develop autism? No. However, if even one child developed autism as a result of the vaccine, it should be pulled. There are more than one anecdotal incidents of parents relating that their children became autistic after being injected with the MMR vaccine. These parents are represented in the film Vaxxed. The problem is that the numbers for children with autism have increased exponentially over the years that the vaccine has been given. Which is worse? Your child getting autism perhaps, or your child getting Measles, Rubella or Mumps? According to studies and scientists there is no controversy. The vaccine is safe. If not, why did the whistleblower risk his life and career coming forward?
Does the vaccine for MMR contribute to autism in certain individuals? Photo courtesy of the film.
Is there a causative factor between the MMR vaccine and autism? According to the Medical Industrial Complex (MIC) and its minions in mainstream media and elsewhere, the MMR vaccine is perfectly fine for every child being vaccinated. Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle does not apply to medicine: did you know? So according to those in the MIC who support this vaccine, there is no doubt about this vaccine, no problem, no uncertainty. According to them it is perfect, safe, perfect, safe, perfect, safe, perfect, perfect, perfect for all children. It's a sure thing.

First off, there is a problem with this reasoning. Not every human being responds the same to every chemical substance. Every human body is different; you know that simply from hearing about individuals' allergic reactions-one is allergic to cats or penicillin, another is not. So you know the reasoning is off. One shoe does not fit every foot. Likewise one vaccine may be safe for one individual and cause autism for another. There is no vaccine, no medicine that is a sure thing. Drugs and foods and all chemical substances may cause allergic reactions, may induce side effects, create catastrophe or lead to death. There is uncertainty about every chemical that is man made. That is why we have the FDA and government regulation and agencies like the CDC to monitor our drug safety and weigh the levels of uncertainty. If a drug's danger risk outweighs its benefits,they will pull the drug and ban it. Unless, of course, government agencies are not independent bodies but are pressured and controlled by corporations.

According to Director Andrew Wakefield former doctor retaliated against for initially exposing concerns about the MMR vaccine, these two lines should track together and be as one. The fact they do not is a problem and the results were changed to have them track together to make it look all was fine in the study about MMR. Photo from the film Vaxxed.
Secondly, the MIC has created for itself a horrific track record with the results of faulty and skewed research being accepted because profits must be made. This has effected dire consequences. Reports of pulled medicines hit the news media every year, especially alternative media not in concert with pharmaceutical companies through advertising. Faulty and troublesome medical devices and medicines have brought on class action lawsuits. The public has gained increased awareness of the MIC's "faux pas" because many of them have led to damage and the death of loved ones. The pain and suffering has been acute and families have been victimized. At the least, knowledge and the awareness that doctors are not saviors and Big Pharma oligarchies are not friendly, helpful and concerned for human welfare are concepts gaining critical mass.

The FB page of The Epoch Times carried the story. Photo ET.
What happened with Tribeca Film Festival pulling Vaxxed is now gaining critical mass as a part of that awareness and mistrust of the MIC. The public is increasingly skeptical about medical research (often conducted dependently and not via independent, non profit research centers with no ties to Big Pharma) which give a pass to medicines that are then pushed by doctors to patients. The public increasingly questions why vaccines are mandated, no choice is given and the court system to protest such is separate and apart from the established justice system. The public is tired of having to accept the role of guinea pig and research rat, of being the passive, non-vocal, unwitting, defenseless and uncomplaining citizenry swallowing what our "betters" tell us for "our own good." We are tired of this role because the FDA and government bodies like the CDC who were established to protect citizens, instead, are loyal to the MIC

Thus, with an increasingly aware public, pulling such a film from the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival backed by NYC beloved Robert De Niro was one of the worst PR gaffs that could ever be created for/by Big Pharma and its vaccine lobby. Such a decision to pressure an individual with the gravitas and celebrity of De Niro was wrongheaded thinking. Immediately, upon the announcement, cries of censorship abounded and questions were raised. Who got to De Niro? Was the film irresponsible or truthful? What was the big deal, anyway? How could such censorship be allowed in a country based on principles of "freedom of the press" and "free speech?" What?
Del Bigtree, Medical Journalist: Vaxxed

De Niro and the festival were victimized and cast in the light of the underdog. Social media on Vaxxed began a fire storm and the film has been shown at Angelika Film Center in NYC not one night, not two, but three weeks and more. De Niro gradually has begun to speak out about what happened. The film's director and film subjects have spoken out on Social Media and it is going viral. Indeed, the irony in all of this is that the public has opened its heart to Vaxxed. Many more people will see this film than ever would have in its formerly scheduled one time showing at Tribeca Film Festival. One would almost think that it is a conspiracy to have effected such a gaff which backfired and is so controversial that it is promoting the film. Social media loves controversy and democratic debate, despite the trolls hired to quash it.

The story is now simmering in public hearts and will gain momentum. The players have been cast in an interesting light: corporate media controlled by conglomerates censors what conglomerates want censored. The Vaxxed filmmakers are heroes. The filmmaker who questioned the film being shown, debunking the film before she even saw it appears jealous and complaining. De Niro is brilliant for "caving" to pressure to pull the film, "unwittingly" creating the backlash.

To publicize the festival, De Niro has also commented on the film when asked questions about it. Most recently, on The Today Show, De Niro commented to the effect that it is a film people should see. His son has autism. Clearly, he would be interested if there was a possible causative link between autism and any portion of the MMR vaccine. Indeed, with his statements about Vaxxed, he has given an imprimatur for an additional investigation about the issues the film presents, an investigation that is independent and apart from any corporate funding research foundation. At the very least we need to see the film and decide for ourselves, especially if a CDC whistleblower has indicated the research was changed to give the vaccine a pass when it was clearly shown to be potentially catastrophic for certain individuals.

Mainstream Nutritionists VS. Homeopathic Nutritionists

Fresh organic lemon juice and filtered water purify your body.

Western cultures do not practice fasting. In fact going without three meals a day is ANATHEMA. When one skips a meal or two, nutritionists, medical professionals schooled by Western mainstream medicine and the health oblivious, sound the anorexia trumpet.

In fact fasting a meal or two or three is good for you because it gives one's body a rest. Alternative nutritionists who follow homeopathic treatments understand this. However, mainstream nutritionists are blithely ignorant of the health benefits of many things, including fasting.

If you check out the menus of hospital fare prepared by "nutritionists" who have degrees, you will note the foods are mostly processed, the breads-packaged and filled with preservatives and additives, all for the convenience of the hospital or nursing facility not for the health of the patient. They serve JELL-O and other desserts after their horrific meals. And that is "better" than fasting on clean, filtered water and lemon juice or other juices made from herbicide-free, pesticide-free, non GMO fruits and vegetables? I don't think so.

Sodas, diet sodas, seltzers deplete enzymes, calcium and nutrients.
Nutritionists in hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living centers should be ashamed of themselves. Indeed, mainstream nutritionists should rethink their "group think" training, unless they are advocating locally sourced, clean foods. Generally, nutritionists who claimed to be "experts" during the past thirty years, as a majority, have not advocated for organic, pesticide and herbicide-free vegetables and fruits, free-ranged, pasture-raised animals not given growth hormones or antibiotics, etc., non processed foods with no additives, let alone fluoride-free, clean, filtered water. They have been in the dark and have, like the AMA, and M.I.C. ONLY advocated for mainstream practices and foods, not seeing the relationships of such products to health and wellness. Such "experts" are limited. Their information has been controlled by the government and corporate networks (food and drink industry, medical industrial complex, etc.) whose agenda is profit. People have died as a result of noxious medical practices, poisonous drugs and medicines, as well as incorrect nutritional advice and more.

In Spring, herbs and medicinal plants in the wild are powerful de-toxifiers
 But in the world of mainstream medicine, mainstream "nutrition," mainstream media, etc., up is down, black is white, pink is green and profit-driven blindness is "good." Indeed, those in the alternative medicinal fields like chiropractors, homeopaths, alternative MDs and doctors advocating against mainstream practices have, like heretics, been excoriated as "quacks." Some have had their licenses revoked and have been jailed by FDA enforcement types. Recently, some have ended up dead. Their questionable deaths which could be murders have not been investigated properly by law enforcement. One has only to review the historical record to understand that this is not a joke or some twisted theory about the nefariousness of the AMA and the MIC. Money is fact. Corporations aligned with government assets could care less about your health and well being for a variety of reasons. So you must be the one who cares and takes charge of your own health. See my discussion in a previous essay.

Dr. Nicholas Gonzales, MD, alternative cancer doctor is dead.
Hospital/nursing home/rehab facility food is far from nutritious and may be exacerbating the patients' kidney and liver toxic burden Nutritionists and doctors ALLOWING processed or canned food to be given to patients are suspect. In this day and age nutrition is known in alternative medicine to promote health or illness. If doctors have 3 courses in nutrition in their medical training that is amazing, but it is far from sufficient. They need to understand the relationship between clean food, optimal nutrition, and appropriate enzymes and trace minerals to promote healing. Unfortunately, for many in the M.I.C, the idea of restricting unclean, chemicalized processed foods and providing fresh, local, organic foods or home made meals is viewed with skepticism or not considered at all. Let's face it! If hospital/nursing home patients were provided with clean, non chemicalized, non processed organic foods to promote their health, the profitability for the hospital and medical care facility would suffer. If proper nutrition and clean foods provided beautiful health, what need for mainstream medicine's nostrums, pills, drugs, treatments?

This bakery made cake, fresher than a packaged cake, is still toxic.
 Have you looked at the weight and size of those in the medical profession? I do remember as a child I was criticized by male doctors for being fat. I was about twenty pounds over normal size as a kid. The doctors who commented that I must be eating cakes, pies and cookies (worse, I ate pasta 3-4 times a week which my mother served up because it was cheap, easy and my Dad liked it) to make me fat, were no less than 50 pounds overweight themselves. Should we take the advice of preventative healthfulness from those who are out of shape, unhealthy, overweight or obese and are pushing three squares a day of processed hospital food when and if they check up on their patients? Should we accept what these M.I.C. trained folks tell us about fasting being bad for us?

I think not. And besides, holistic doctors and those who practice Eastern medicine advocate fasting for cleansing one's system, strengthening the immune system and promoting healing. Mainstream medical practice protocol vs. holistic protocol! Which works to strengthen one's own metabolic machine toward healing? Is this a trick question? Why is periodic fasting appropriate for homeopathy/holistic/alternative medicine and anathema for aleopathy which allows horrific junk food, processed food, chemicalized food to be served in nursing homes and hospitals? Why do mainstream doctors not discuss the vital necessity of clean, filtered water and clean food nutrition as part of their treatment plan? Why do they just advocate their Big Pharma protocols, indeed, behaving like whorish drug pushers? Why do mainstream nutritionists persist in their noxious food menus, accepting rationales for processed foods? Money, salary, profit, jobs.

For this reason, those nutritionists who do NOT follow the typical mainstream protocols should be noted for their courage. It is they who should be supported and sought out for their advice. If you must go to a nutritionist, seek out one who advocates for organic, pesticide-free, herb-free produce, clean, filtered water and wherever possible, gluten-free products. (Wheat and grain flour, even whole grain is oftentimes GMO. It has been tweaked, the flour refined with nutritional value at nil.) And if the individual advocates fasting and cleanses, then they are worth the money. Your health is priceless as is your life.

Prostate Cancer. A Cautionary Tale of My Father

Echinacea has less side effects and has anti-bacterial properties. It is better than chemicals and powerful antibiotics.
After I witnessed the medical profession deal with my father's supposed prostate cancer, I have had a turn around in what I am willing to allow my family to undergo in the hands of the (MIC), the medical industrial complex. My father was diagnosed with prostate cancer at 90 years of age, based upon a PSA test. This was in the 1990s; my father died in 1998. Years later, the doctor who created the PSA test wrote an apologetic editorial in the NY Times stating that the PSA test for prostate cancer had been egregiously misused by doctors to justify various treatments including seed radiation, surgery, Lupron, etc., treatments that were in effect, overkill. These were prescribed even for elderly males in advanced years when the cancer was so slow growing as to be practically benign. The creator of the PSA test stated that the use of the PSA was patently wrong and it was obviously being done to advance the bank accounts of doctors and Big Pharma. The editorial was a warning to the general public to be on high alert.

Medical diagnostics like drugs are a slippery slope.
 I wish I had known this when a doctor my sister-in-law (a nurse) recommended told us my father had prostate cancer based upon his PSA. He had an enlarged prostate, no pain and urinated frequently. The doctor insisted on prescribing Lupron for the rest of his life (it should only have been for 1 year). The doctor was wrong. We didn't know it. We followed the prescriptions for Lupron which over a five year period created various complications that the MIC and the doctor did not note or forewarn us of. One of them was increased emotional stress and a change in body chemistry hormones. (lupron is a female hormone). In any case my father who had no other medical condition (no high blood pressure, no heart condition, etc.) and whose body had been pristine and fairly clean (he was very active-gardened and we thought of him as a strong man with a strong immune system) now was receiving dosages of chemicals. Who scientifically knows how this impacted his body, his mind, his soul? All I know is WHAT HAPPENED. Anecdotal evidence is crap to the scientific community, is it not? How convenient.

Dad deteriorated. There was an obvious change in his body chemistry and the Lupron made him hyper emotional and confused and stressed him out. He fell due to loss of blood and was diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer...given anesthetic, of course and a drug which made him salivate and become nearly comatose, but kept him from climbing out of bed to get out of the hospital. (his fear was well grounded and he was prescient...but the MIC doesn't believe in a soul or spirit... so he was off his rocker). The nurses LOVED the drug because overworked...he was "out of it" and they could go to other patients (never mind what it did to Dad's body).
The size of a meds dose differs for everyone.

He was discharged. He was put on more prescriptions; he deteriorated more, fell, had a hip replacement and more anesthesia-which caused more memory loss. There were painkillers and more drugs. Then he was put on a catheter which the nurse said he would have for the rest of his life. (she was God and pronounced his death sentence...we were ignorant and believed her). The catheter caused incredible problems and we had to give my Dad antibiotics to stem the frequent infections...more powerful drugs, side effects on top of the Lupron. We had to watch his red blood supply and to counteract the lowered blood count do other things. Indeed, his body chemistry was changed and his immune system was being overcome.

Thus, instead of using homeopathetic protocols to encourage my Dad's immune system to deal, we continued to weaken it with more drugs, more toxins, more chemicals and crappy convenience food. (he did well for a time on Chinese take out, most probably because it was fresh, but the MSG was bad). Big Pharma, the doctors, the hospital bled his Medicare insurance gradually as he kept on returning to the hospital for various reasons: infections, a procedure to see if he had colon cancer, other ridiculous stuff. My God, the man was 92. By this time, his immune system had been tremendously compromised and was not functioning. This was caused not by his prostate cancer at 93, but by the Lupron, antibiotics reflux meds (I never understood this...but it is given to the elderly whether they need it or not), and other meds. My Dad's body was a toxic dumping ground. Thank you for all the legal mainstream medical protocols that work in the name of "making folks better." This irony is incredibly laughable. But I don't find it funny.

Grounding on the beach is crucial to a strong immune system.
 My Dad's doctor who I had a modicum of trust for because he was of Indian extraction and had a great respect for the elderly, was called to India. His own Dad had fallen  ill. I took Dad to another doctor, a female who gave him more drugs, including a water pill which dehydrated him. Did she know of the side effects? My Indian doctor did and when he came back immediately gave him potassium.

This female doctor arranged for a scan to see how "advanced" the cancer was. I had to sign off on the red dyes that were pumped into my father's system to allow the device to "photograph" his condition. I had no clue what the dyes' effect was and I dare say, neither did the substitute doctor (who believed in fighting the cancer after the patient was dead...really sharp tack, she was). The test was needless; the man was 94. I was too in shock to say or think with reason and deny the test. What were they going to do? Cut up his whole body to remove the cancer after he was a corpse? I'm sure they would have if the FDA and the AMA would have been able to arrange it. More money for them.

Dad's weakened body struggled to get rid of these chemicals and inevitably, he died, not of the cancer but because he had been slowly poisoned by all the drugs and the dyes. I MEAN WHY HAVE FOLKS SIGN OFF ON SUCH A TEST???? IT IS OBVIOUSLY POISON INJECTED INTO THE BODY. THAT'S WHY. I WAS AN IDIOT. On top of all the chemicals, the inorganic and processed hospital food was another glorious addition. In the hospital for a long while, my Dad was beginning to go into organ failure. We brought him home for Hospice; my brother was going to "juice" him. Dad was breathing heavily and I suggested he go back to the hospital. Though he was unconscious, in my last moments with him around midnight, I told him once again (I had told him this before on other occasions) that I would be OK. That he could go and be with my Mom, his wife (she died in a car accident years before) and that The Lord would be there to receive him with Mom. A few hours later at 3:00 am he died. He died without complaint and with honor.
Dr. Gonzalez could have helped my Dad. He died this year.

I wish I could believe that I acted honorably. Knowing what I know now, I KNOW I absolved myself of researching my Dad's condition and sticking with alternative protocols to help him. I was as rotten as the doctor who prescribed Lupron and wrote us the surreptitiously threatening letter. My brother and I, especially my brother, tried in the beginning with alternative treatments then gave up; we became exhausted with the draining process of the chemicalization of Dad. He eventually needed 24/7 care and we and an aid spotted each other for 2 years in 4 - 8 hour shifts. Dad remained at home with intermittent hospital visits until the last few hours of his life where he was hospitalized and where extraordinary measures were not taken. He had a living will and himself years before swore that God should take him if he couldn't take care of himself. By his own admission, he was around longer than he would have wished. We weren't ready to let him go.

I think to a great extent I, my brother and my sister-in-law, a nurse, were complicit in effecting his death. We handed my Dad over to the MIC. If my Dad had his druthers, he would have peed his pants every day rather than to have a catheter or even take the Lupron. He kept on telling us he felt fine but had to pass water every now and then when he was 90. Why didn't we listen to him? He had no pain which made us wonder. On the other hand that was great. Why wonder; be thankful. He was in his 90s. Leave him alone. But a few years before my uncle had prostate cancer and it was very painful. Nothing could be done for him; it metasticized very quickly which was unusual for a 91-year-old. Seeing my uncle suffer, I wanted to forestall my Dad's suffering. But my Dad was right when he said, "His story is NOT my story." Why didn't I listen?
By 2300 this symbol will be eradicated.

Though hindsight is an exact science, after going through all this, if the worst of it was an enlarged prostate and frequent urination and no pain, I would willingly have allowed him to pee his pants and use Depends, rather than to have him go through that horrible, terrorizing, emotionally draining process which led him to an earlier death than was necessary. The MIC "wellness" process changed my brother and me. It destroyed us as we daily watched my father slowly weaken, not from the prostate condition but from the LEGAL poisons that were slowly wrecking his immune system and KILLING HIM. Was murder ever so legal? Was murder ever so profitable?

Would it not have been better to leave him alone at 90 when he was diagnosed with cancer? Of course. But to prod us on as the good sheep we were, we received a letter from the cancer doctor warning us that he informed us of Dad's condition and the treatment. It was a CYA letter for him and a manipulation of our emotions. You do nothing? You are responsible for your father's's your ballgame. This is it; the only way to go. (no alternative treatments were listed by that doctor..duh)  Like Pontius Pilate, he was not to be blamed or held liable if we did nothing. It was a creditable spur for us to take the full responsibility of DOING NOTHING. So we "did what the doctor ordered." We did what was legal according to AMA protocols. We followed the US FDA policy on legal drugs and chemicals and the story as you read above unfolded. Bravo and thank you US politicians, policy, the FDA, the MIC. Bravo and thank you to all the Foundations that keep you teeming in money. Bravo.

Filled with Omega 3s and calcium. Good for seniors.
 The total money laid out by Medicare and my Dad's bank accounts, adjusted for inflation was in the millions. My Dad's gradual poisoning and lifeblood draining kept the hospitals and their retinues-nurses, doctors, assistants, aides, janitors, ambulance drivers, etc., moving along and subsidized and sustained. His Medicare insurance and bank accounts allowed his doctors to feel like they made a difference (the Indian doctor did make a difference by being non aggressive and I do appreciate his concern-and the fact he DID NOT BROOK THE TYPICAL AMERICAN DOCTORS' ATTITUDE). The AMA was legitimized; the entire system of Medicare was bilked and the fantasy that the MIC is supporting HEALTH was perpetuated. Multiply my father's situation with the millions that face the MIC yearly; they keep everything afloat and allow the systemic corruption to prevail.

Bravo and thank you. The medicals are happy with the lies, the obfuscations the fantasy...they are functioning in a dream world and are in incredible denial. And they are supposedly brilliant and we must look up to them? Well, the MIC is a house of cards and it will fall because IT IS FAKE. They are charlatans with a modicum of "success" that if their "successes" in disease treatment were really looked at in percentages? We would all run to homeopaths and Chinese herbalists and other alternative medical professionals. Medical Deity forbid.

My eyes have been opened. I write this as a cautionary tale. Be circumspect. Read. Investigate. Don't do what I did, what my family did because we were exhausted, because I was working, because it was convenient. Or do what we did but know there are alternatives out there. Seek them and seek the horrible path of MIC treatments as a last resort. Or at least investigate them first and prepare thousands of questions and watch your mainstream doctor's face. If they don't like your questions, get out of the office fast. You HAVE CHOICES. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Above all seek wellness and wholeness in your lifestyle and have faith. And remember, you are individual and unique. One size does not fit all. Don't let this be yours or your family's story. Peace out!

Mainstream Medical Practice and Clean Nutrition, An Oxymoron.

Bet you don't know these plants.
 Holistic Medicine deals with the whole person, mind, soul, body. It also deals with proper nutrition, that is clean food nutrition. When it comes to processed foods and chemicalized foods like margarine, foods filled with coloring dyes, MSG (flavor enhancer) and junk foods, properly named because they provide little or no nutritional sustenance, holistic medicine acknowledges their toxic effects and eschews it.
Organic farm produce without herbicides or pesticides or GMOs

Medical school in the rush to examine "everything" about the physical body, decries other aspects of the human being which are even more important to understanding disease entities. It does not note the interactions between the mind, the soul and the body. It rarely connects the emotions' impact on the body. The medical industrial complex (MIC), and all of its tentacles (Big Pharma, Health Insurance, Home Health Care, Assisted Living Centers, Rehabilitation Facilities, et. al.), don't deal with encouraging health and wellness. Few insurance companies encourage through cost savings their clients' fitness, clean nutrition or wellness lifestyle to prevent dis-ease.

The MIC's profit agenda perpetuates disease. For them dis-ease as related to THE WHOLE PERSON, mind, soul (they don't even recognize a "SOUL"), body is not efficacious. As for the MIND? Medical practice doesn't acknowledge or review how the mind/soul/emotions impact the body beyond a passing reference to "Stress." The MIC strictly deals with the mechanical functioning of the body as a bio-chemical entity, though a human being's wellness is extravagantly complex. No wonder why in their treatment of disease, they have a high failure rate proportionately. Failure rate percentages in any other profession would be so egregious as to close down the practitioners of that profession.
Small pills, big chemical toxins. Side effects? Yes.

Finally, lifestyle which should be paramount is given very short shrift in medical schools. There is little study of how toxins and chemicals in the environment, let alone in processed foods, impact patients' immune systems and foment disease. Nor is there an attempt to understand the impact of non-organic and GMO foods on the body. Nor does the MIC deal with the impact of patients' longitudinal processed food addictions. Even some of the chemicals used for MRIs and scans involve toxic dyes that the liver and kidneys must filter out of a body which is already compromised by prescription drug toxins that have weakened the immune system.
Humans are the guinea pigs that service the MIC. Higher ups in the corporate world know this, especially those CEOs of food companies and agra-business and MONSANTO. To the best of their abilities they eat organic, clean, non GMO foods and drink filtered, reverse osmosis water that is piped into their water systems at their homes.

Do the CEOs of food companies or various medical related corporations eat processed foods? Michael Moss makes this point in his book Salt, Sugar and Fat. Corporate higher ups in their own personal lives, often eschew the systems that make their companies trillions in profits over decades. And many embrace alternative therapies knowing of the egregious side effects medicines cause. The Rockefeller scion was into natural foods and natural medicine. But check out what medical entanglements the Rockefeller Foundation promoted and promotes to this day.

Side effects anyone?
According to the film The Human Experiment, there are 80,000 chemicals that are in the US whose impact on the human body is unknown because there are few studies to test such chemicals. To date, in the US only 200 chemicals have been tested and in some instances their use has been restricted. GMOs, for example have fallen under the radar of detection in the US, though not in Europe which is much more stringent in their banning of toxic chemicals (they have banned over 1000 +). Though their medical complex embraces chemo, radiation and surgery to "deal with" cancer, many countries in the European Union embrace homeopathic remedies. I saw a special section in the pharmacy when I was in Ireland in April. They are alerted to worry about chemicals' impact on a compromised immune system and acidic body. They are aware that drug and chemical companies are sister industries. In some instances there is even be a carry over of chemicals into processed foods and medicines.

I mind not knowing if the treatment is OK.
 Bottom line: I wouldn't "mind" handing over my bank account if the treatment I was receiving was "perfect." I wouldn't mind if there were no side effects of meds, anesthesia, etc., over the long term. I wouldn't mind if the treatment guaranteed that there was no return of health issues. But that's not the case. With those who have cancer, the cancer stays in their bodies; it may be arrested for a time and doctors gleefully talk about how their "cure" brought the "patient" (look at that word...we have to be patient until the medical profession gets it right...thus far...forget it) into remission. Meanwhile, what is the impact of the chemo, radiation, surgery? What did the doctor do to boost one's immune system through the process?
Wild fish boosts the immune system.

HOW THE FAILURE OF ONE'S  IMMUNE SYSTEM CAUSED DISEASE is not a discussion you will have in a mainstream medical doctor's office. The issue never comes up because it is not cost effective, FOR THEM. Remember your bank account is what is a top priority. So the treatment one receives only deals with the body. We are more than our bodies; We have souls; I am a soul, a mind, my lifestyle patterns: what I eat, drink, rest, etc.

So I am stepping into the doctor's office with all of this information and he/she doesn't want to deal with any of that to assess what treatment to use. WTF? Medical school and their internship trainings only focus on a very narrow segment of the problem, the symptoms because the symptoms are the visible tip of the iceberg (using technology and testing). Meanwhile the full iceberg cannot be seen even to instrumentation ( instrumentation can produce false positives; it also doesn't measure soul sickness). What is the cause of the disease? The MIC doesn't care. What threatens below? The MIC doesn't care. How has my immune system been compromised to cause the disease? The MIC doesn't care. We must rethink relying heavily on a system that doesn't care about the whole human body and life experiences beyond a "medical" history. They do care, though about money. And in keeping with that paradigm, they view us as "consumers," servants, guinea pigs, potential users of its drugs and chemicals for the rest of our lives. The toxic side effects of the chemicals are an afterthought.

Waterfronts help one decompress.
When I step into a mainstream medical doctor's office, my insurance company BY LAW pays for an egregiously high proportion of negative risk. And this is doubly so if one is being cared for by medical practitioners between the ages of 50-60 who came up in a system that didn't even acknowledge that chiropractors were doctors (1987 was the year that the bans were lifted). So the MIC and all of its incumbent influences encourage medical practitioners not to care about how interactions between my mind and soul may be a source of my body's dis-ease. Pharma and my doctor don't care about the meds' side effects to my liver and kidneys, endocrine system, etc. They don't care about a bad diagnosis, or toxic medical complications. The rat wheel of more meds, more side effects, more dis-ease with the underlying iceberg still in tact is typical.
What of prevention? How does the doctor stir my own healing powers in my immune system if he or she doesn't acknowledge that within the mind, soul, body connection lurk the answers to eliminate the root causes of dis-ease? I am not receiving treatment to boost my immune system. I am receiving treatment that most likely will impair it further. If it is not impaired now, the meds will impair it down the road. For this I am handing over my bank account? Not if I can help it.

Naturopaths are different. With them you would be receiving treatment to boost your immune system, learn about proper ways to eat that include regimens of NOT eating GMO foods tweaked with pesticides in their plant DNA. You would be encouraged to eat free range and pasture raised animals, organic seeds, fruits, vegetables and nuts and the like.

You will not hear this in a typical AMA medical industrial complex office of networked insurance for consumers. So? You take a tremendous risk going to a medical "professional." You take a terrible risk going to a hospital where medical errors are staggering and thousands die needlessly. Regardless, doctors and medical "professionals" get paid. At least they could own up to the fact that the  Hippocratic or Professional OATH IS BUNK and their swearing of it is ridiculous if they are NOT planning to "practice" upholding it.

My wishlist is for doctors, themselves to "MAN UP." They need to tell or acknowledge to their patients they are caught in vises and are being squeezed by the AMA, Big Pharma and Mainstream Medical Practice training. They are confined by group think and the threat of malpractice litigation. Do they have anything better to do than care for the people who are the innocents and who want help and put their lives in doctors' hands? No. Honesty would clear the air and maybe create more caring individuals. I should think their consciences would be relieved, those that have consciences free from the guilty weight of worshiping at the altar of Mammon.

 Although the analogy may be spurious, at times greedy, profit-hungry Big Pharma execs, the FDA and their prostitutes (mainstream doctors) remind me of religious clergy. You know, the kind who profess being sinless themselves (a patent lie), while commanding their parishioners to live like saints and follow their rules. If they don't, here come the "Hail Marys," and "Our Fathers." These same hypocrites THEN PREY ON LITTLE BOYS AND OTHERS and instead of seeking help or leaving the clergy, they seek asylum in the church and invariably continue their predatory practices. The church cover-ups over the centuries have been far and wide until recently.

Likewise, for years various mainstream medical practitioners' (include Big Pharma researchers and medical device researchers), egregious and erroneous treatments/drugs have largely gone under the radar with their lethal side effects, until recently. When family, patients and investigative medical journalists finally began to wake up and sue, word of medical errors made the papers. Unfortunately, the litigation largely has been a drop of water in an ocean of hypocrisy with mainly the lawyers benefiting as patients have died or have been damaged beyond imagination. Money is a small palliative and in some states (like Texas with torte reform laws) there is little remunerative recourse. 

The bean counters have proven that such litigation in the long term does little to inroad profits of drugs and medical devices and by the time the drug or device has been taken off the market, billions have been made. Why does this process continue?

Medical practitioners have sought the comfort of group think and the "legitimacy" of mainstream M.I.C. practices. These have been sustained by the AMA, FDA and various NGO foundations and for-profit or not-for-profit hospitals, medical universities and colleges and medical centers, etc. All carry with them the patina of "righteousness" and holy perfection. The irony is that this is pure image; the true story is that politics and corruption abide, and oftentimes, great harm is being done. (the burning, poisoning and cutting of cancer treatments are a bleak example). I especially refer to the treatment of chronic disease entities, not the great surgical emergency care delivered in some ERs around the nation. (few proportionately...not all ERs are equal)
Courtesy of Suzanne Somers book.

Of course (as in the instances of those abused by clergy) by the time folks wake up and confront the harm, the obfuscation and confusion and general "lack of ability to articulate" has created such delay that the situation is past correction. Family end up burying their victimized loved ones, not knowing if there was an alternative treatment to health and life. Especially in torte reform states, the medical industrial complex enjoys the money and the "status" of appearing to help.

For the great number of patient deaths that occur yearly (in the hundreds of thousands) NO ONE IS RESPONSIBLE EXCEPT THE PATIENT WHO HAS BEEN VICTIMIZED AND SHAMED BY HIS DISEASE. THE EXCUSE OFTEN IS HE/SHE DID NOT ACT QUICKLY ENOUGH TO GET TREATMENT, not that there was a better way other than what conventional medicine offered. The predators have had "their fun." The holy church of science and the medical industrial complex have protected those involved. The FDA with God-like regulation has blessed the situation; the drugs, protocol and players are  "clean." This religious fervor permeates to the ancillary fields of medicine, i.e. psychiatry and extends its tentacles to all supporting rehabilitation and nursing care facilities. Medical practitioners need to wake up and extricate themselves from this religious group think.

For your own benefit and to as best as possible not allow yourself to be preyed upon, you have to become your own doctor/advocate. You have to discover what ultimately may cause symptoms which are the end result of underlying body imbalances that morph to full blown disease. Doctors are only concerned with treating symptoms, not underlying causes. So, get educated.  Read all you can about nutrition, holistic medical protocols, alternative treatments and interventions that do not involve heavy use of chemicals-toxic drugs with egregious side effects like "death," "heart attack," "stroke," "blindness," "nausea," "paralysis," or other symptoms that may cause you to live an impaired existence:  damage your immune system and lead to your early death.

That the FDA has sanctioned drugs whose side effects may be "death" and "stroke" is beyond worrisome. The notion is that the drugs are effective against the disease, but may kill you in the process. Then what? The onus is on your family to hold the company accountable. The escape clause has been that the drug side effects are printed for you and are read on TV in rapid fire nano seconds; you know, the voice over narration rapidly scrolls the long and horrendous list of the drug's side effects. So, you heard THE LIABILITIES (death, stroke, paralysis, etc.) or read them. Yet you risked taking the drug anyway. It is your fault not the FDA which gave the drug clearance to be used. OBVIOUSLY, THE FDA IS "JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU!" It is INTO HELPING ITS BIG PHARMA FRIENDS. You are forced to protect yourself and be your own advocate. (but don't "practice medicine without a license") The medical industrial complex with its friend, the WHORE OF BABYLON FDA, have made it a Catch-22. You, the patient/consumer are...DAMNED IF YOU DO, DAMNED IF YOU DON'T. So are any alternative doctors who go overboard and state that they have been successful against killer diseases with alternative protocols.
GM crops cause sickness and weakened immune systems.

Is it worth it to even try alternative doctors? Yes, especially those who are licensed MDs who know both sides of conventional and holistic medicine. These doctors are trained in both aleopathy and homeopathy and are brilliant practitioners WHO WILL BE INTO YOU. They take their professional oaths seriously because they risk defamation and anathema as holistic practitioners. The better and more successful they are, the more the FDA is likely to go after them to protect the M.I.C.

Recently, a few alternative doctors have died. It is a shame because they were successful in helping patients over and above conventional treatment. Dr. Gonzalez of NYC, whose protocols I am familiar with and who has had success in treating many individuals with cancer, is no longer around. His co-partner is in practice. And they have a website. Their treatments live on and they in spirit live on exerting their protocols from another realm of consciousness.
Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, MD is dead.

There are many sites devoted to beneficial alternative treatments. Some of these have been around for decades, centuries and thousands of years and have been used successfully. Examples are those from Eastern medicine or are folk remedies of outlier cultures (i.e. the Amish of Pennsylvania). Some protocols involve herbs, poultices, fasting and teas, clean foods, fruits and vegetables, elements, minerals, vitamins, etc. There are books on herbal or ancient folk medicine. The interesting factor is that there are little or few side effects.

Sometimes, our ancestors, through trial and error jettisoned a remedy if it didn't work and the side effects killed the patient (unlike modern medicine). They kept what had power and efficacy, as in herbal remedies. The process was slower, but it was effective over time and the patient's immune system was able to recover and was even strengthened. Did this work for malaria? Cholera? Sometimes. Great swaths of people died, but some lived. Such illnesses were situational and conditional, pretty much like toxic radiation poisoning (the government kept this officially secret from those living near test sites for years; except for leaks to the press-no one knew). Unlike water born illness or insect born illness, folks who had radiation poisoning had one way to go: speedily into the ground.
Dr. Bruce Hendendal is dead.

When reading through alternative therapies in books and/or on websites, you must learn to sift, cull, weed out and cobble through, then make your own decisions about your own health. Good health is an art; it involves trial and error. As a unique individual with your own DNA, you must assess what works and what doesn't; you are the arbiter of your own health, ultimately. And you are an individual in mind, soul, body. Nothing is as simplistic as the conventional field of medicine in disease diagnosis has made it. The integration of the mind soul and body is what the holistic medical practitioner works best with.

The fact that medical practice is an art as stated in the professional oaths that doctors supposedly swear to uphold, does not mean that they "practice" it as an art. For the most part doctors do not acknowledge that you have a soul and only until recently did they begin to acknowledge the impact of the mental state of being on the body

This is part of the art that holistic doctors acknowledge in their diagnosis. On the other hand, mainstream doctors as a cult of science have not only forgotten proper diagnosis is an art, they have relied as group thinkers on their "esteem" and "honor" as science gods, pandering to the allegedly empirical evidence of scientific protocol. (whose results are founded on profits)

The emotional and unethical basis of such scientific protocol and research results nullifies and pollutes much of the research data because the results are tied to whether the drug is "effective," (regardless of side effects) in stopping symptoms. For example, Lipitor is effective in lowering cholesterol. On the other hand, it causes tremendous damage.

Let's face it, making money is a huge emotional component for practitioners. Company profit grounds the "science" which is supposed to be OBJECTIVE. PR agencies help promote and project the medical industrial complex's image of infallibility, again for huge profit. Medical practitioners work under the presumption that they know all there is to know about your condition, when in fact, there is tremendous uncertainty and the best they can hope for is your truthfulness in describing the condition and their experience with that condition.

Oftentimes, and especially with prescribing meds (doctors receive a profit on the drugs they get patients to use long term), they ignore that each individual is different and often do not accurately take into consideration age, weight, size, demographics, lifestyles, habits, nutrition and many other factors. And of course if one were to check into the research of the drug's acceptance by the FDA, that is a can of worms. The research is often faulty; the results skewed toward acceptance. On the other hand holistic MDs, naturopaths and homeopaths do take into consideration that you are an individual being when delving into the art of diagnosis and intervention. They know the effects of toxicity on the immune system. They do not prescribe toxic medications which can impair your immune system from fighting disease. Or they offer cleanses to purify your system of toxins created on the road to health.
Dr. Teresa Sievers is dead.

To begin to make proper disease assessments, medical practitioners must take a lot of time with you, asking you questions, using their senses to gauge what condition you are in, looking for the hidden information that you may not even realize you are occluding. Time is what mainstream doctors do not have. The naturopath, the holistic medical practitioner uses time as his or her friend. With mainstream doctors, diagnosis is quick and dirty. They rely on the scientific "perfection" of machines and tests to do what they themselves should be doing. Machines do not clarify; oftentimes, they misdiagnose, overdiagnose, hyper find shadows that appear and disappear (this happened to a friend of mine). Machines and lab results require that experienced individuals make sense of the data; God help you if the individual doesn't "get it right." Radiologists sometimes are notorious for this. Lab tests may be erroneous and have to be redone, if someone even thinks to ask for a retest. (misreads happen more frequently than technicians would like to admit)

Oftentimes, patients, worried and fearful, assume that doctors and their data relate the perfect scientific proof, when there is uncertainty. However, in the last 10 years, statistics, widespread and numerous articles on hospital and doctor errors, FDA approved drug disasters that caused death, the publication of the increase in malpractice lawsuits, and many other issues like hospitals being dangerous places (to pick up anti-biotic resistant bacteria like mrsa),  have taught the well read, educated public to dispute, doubt and question.
Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez's lost interview.
To question is your right. You have a right to good health and to seek alternatives. No one, least of all medical practitioners and the medical industrial complex who IS JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU, should be allowed to use you as a guinea pig. You must prevent them from having extended access into your insurance company money allotment. You have a right to govern your finances regarding your right to health. So you CANNOT AFFORD NOT TO QUESTION. Ultimately, in the long run, misdiagnosis or overdiagnosis is much more costly financially, physically, emotionally, psychically and spiritually. And it can be a devastation for your family stuck with debts wondering if they could have done anything different.

If your doctor is spending 5-10 minutes to diagnose what might be ailing you and then relies predominately on testing, he/she is "JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU!" Go to someone else who understands that health is achieved by a COMBINATION of art and knowledge of the body, not by the medical device company's or Big Pharma's "science." It has become the norm that drugs and device research is skewed in favor of the drug or protocol which the FDA has assigned a stamp of approval because someone has paid a lot of money to usher in its use, regardless of the malformed research design or inconclusive data "proving" the device or drug is sound. Speak to any hip replacement or knee replacement patients lately? How about mesh vaginal implants? The list is long and lousy of drugs and devices that have caused more injury and damage to people than if they just LEFT THE SITUATION ALONE.
Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez is dead.

Ask like minded friends to help you if you don't have the time to comprehensively research your condition on your own. One thing you should know and conclude is this. If you have worked in an environment with suspected carcinogens (even it is not conclusively "proven" by the government-check European standards-they are higher and not as prone to corporate hegemony), toxic air, toxic dust or toxic, fluoride water, polluted products or petrochemicals, then you are at an increased risk that these elements may have poisoned you. Most probably you are suffering from the ill effects of immune system shut down as your body attempts to rid itself of extensive toxicity and stumbles in the process.

Likewise, if you are eating toxins in processed foods in cans and packages, and if you have not been reading labels, begin to do so. The sodium in a can of average chicken noodle soup could give you sodium toxicity over time. Coupled with the other sodium you are ingesting from other processed foods (check out MSG-known as "flavor enhancer"), high blood pressure is a given, among other weakened immune system conditions.

The body needs to be flushed of toxins. What you eat is more dangerous than what you don't eat. Providing you get clean water and clean liquids into your system, cutting out all the toxic processed and unwhole, unlive foods would be a boon for your immune system. If you are not eating organic, clean, sourced food, you are in trouble whether you know it or not. Nutrition involves more than eating vegetables. It involves eating NO POISONS, no herbicides, no pesticides, no DNA toxins inherent in plants (Round-up ready corn or veggies), and animals (put there to convenience and increase profitability for agra-business, not increase your nutrition).

If during your doctor's brief visit with you, he does not discuss nutrition or lifestyle or recommend an organic nutritionist (why should med school-6 hours of nutrition is about what is required despite the multi-complex, chemicalized- food-water-air toxic environment), then face it. HE'S NOT THAT INTO YOU!

These 8 holistic doctors were INTO their patients whom they helped by using other than the medical industrial complex protocols and drugs. BUT NOT ANY MORE. THEY ARE DEAD.
