The Failure of Conventional Medicine (2)

The medicines that we are given to improve our health, or to make us better, actually make us sicker than we were before we took them. 

In fact, conventional medical drugs actually cause disease, and death. And we are not being told about this. Hence this regular weekly newspaper - which will bring you articles from the internet which will inform you about what is happening, when you GP, the NHS, the Dept of Health, and the mainstream media refuse to do so.

Fosamax can cause severe fractures of the femur, and brittle bones. Fosamax is a drug used for Osteoporosis, and if you are not careful, doctors will still prescribe it for you. In the USA, there is actually a condition called 'Fossy-Jaw' which causes the disintegration of the jaw. Fosamax is also known to be bad for your heart, your liver and your stomach.

Psychoactive Drugs are the cause of most Mental Illness? The facts given in this article are quite astounding, and certainly deeply worrying at the time when Mental Health problems are reaching epidemic proportions. For example, did you know that in 2007 the number of disabled mentally-ill children had increased 35 times since 1990?

Asthma drugs may actually increase the risk of asthma attacks. So not only has the number of children suffering from Asthma increased over recent decades, the drug taken and inhaled by those children are probably make the situation worse.

Even drugs like Statins, which we have been told are 'entirely safe' for decades, are now known to be unsafe. This article outlines the case against Statin drugs, and suggests that heart failure, pneumonia, nerve damage - and many other diseases can be contracted by people, the increasing numbers of people, who take them believing them to be safe.

But surely antibiotics are safe? Well, no, they are not. Researchers have now discovered that a common antibiotic is a killer! Antibiotics have been found to cause a range of life-threatening reactions, including liver failure, and hypoglycaemia.

So what about painkillers? Common painkillers. This article, by the appropriately named organisation 'What doctor's don't tell you' (WDDTY) suggests that certain NSAID painkillers may become another Vioxx. (Vioxx, if you had not heard, is thought to have caused about 140,000 heart attacks, and 60,000 deaths before it was withdrawn).

And did you know that some flu vaccines has been withdrawn in Scotland? Well, it was not exactly well publicised! The vaccine was withdrawn because it was causing "a  higher than normal frequency of adverse reactions". You can see, by reading the article, how officials have dismissed this withdrawal as unimportant!

Probably a worse situation has arisen in Australia regarding the flu vaccines. This article says that Australia's drug regulator is demanding an explanation from the drug manufacturer "after it emerged the company knew two years ago about research suggesting a sharp rise in fevers linked to its seasonal flu vaccine, but omitted this from information given to doctors".

Actually, the withholding of vital information about drugs from patients (and doctors too) seems to be quite routine within the world of ConMed. I mentioned the painkilling drug Vioxx, above. The disease-inducing-effects (DIEs) of this drug were known about by the drug company long before the incidents of heart failures and deaths were made public.

Indeed, prescription drugs are now so dangerous they are killing more people than so-called 'illegal' drugs. Perhaps on this basis, prescription drugs should be made illegal.

But, of course, they won't be. ConMed drugs are too profitable for the Big Pharma drug companies. And Big Pharma companies have far too much influence over governments, national health services, drug regulatory bodies, and even our GPs and doctors. So we don't get to know.

However, you may well hear plenty of attacks on homeopathy - or, indeed, any other medical therapy that is safer, and more effective than this awful drug-based medicine. The reason for this is obvious. ConMed is failing. People are beginning to realise it is failing. And an increasing number of people are looking for alternative way of treating their illnesses, and remaining well. From Big Pharma's point of view, this is not good - it will damage their profitability!

What we are dealing with here is a system of medicine that is failing its patients. But it is a system of medicine that is so profitable, so influential and powerful within the political and medical establishment, that we are not being told about it.

For much more information about the ongoing failure of ConMed drugs and vaccines, look here.

Filling the Holes: Homeopathy Deserves a Place in Cancer Treatment

Thanks to Allison Brooks for this blog.  Allison describes herself "a recent college graduate and a holistic health nut" who is very passionate about enlightening people about the benefits natural therapies can have on multiple diseases and illnesses. Well, there are not enough of these sorts of people around! So here is her first blog.

Homeopathy is the oldest form of medicine around.  Before there were “white-coat doctors” and hospitals, there was nature. Nature provided and still provides everything needed to sustain life. Nature gives life, food, water, and health. But as time goes on, humans separate themselves with nature more and more, and the trust in using natural remedies is nonexistent. But, if people looked at the facts, their trust in conventional therapies and medications would diminish.

This is where the example of “filling the holes” comes in; what better way to explain a medical therapy from nature, than with an analogy from nature. Holes do not form themselves; either someone must dig a hole, or the soil composition is weak and then slumps to form a hole. If a conventional cancer therapy were to see this problem, it would simply fill the hole, only to see it re-appear in the future. But if a homeopathic consultant saw the hole, he/she would consider how the hole formed and then fix that problem or soil-imbalance to prevent the hole from recurring.

Since conventional therapies focus only on the treatment of symptoms, like a tumor or growth, the underlying bodily imbalances go un-noticed. If the imbalance or root of the problem is not treated, then the problem will continue to arise. This is where homeopathy steps in. Using what is Nature supplies and following the law of similars, homeopathy has proven to be a vital force in the fight against cancer.
There is much proof that using homeopathy with cancer treatments actually improves recovery time and reduces the chance of recurrence. Many doctors have recognized that fighting cancer with a multiple-layered approach tends to work the best. Nurturing the body, while using conventional therapies, promotes strength, stamina, and the well-being to combat the cancer with full-force. Doctors that are devoted to treating aggressive cancer or ones with a low-survivability rate, like non-hodgkin’s lymphoma or pericardial mesothelioma, encouraged the use of homeopathy, or another alternative therapy, with cancer treatment. Many hospitals even offer the use of in-house homeopathic consultants or alternative therapy practitioners.

Homeopathy Heals Newsletter (1)

First of all, my apologies to the hundreds of people who have subscribed to Homeopathy Post, over the last 4-5 months. The host site proved to be extremely unreliable in picking up the articles that I highlighted for publication, and last week, it failed to pick up any of the 25-30 articles I had selected. This is our new host website, and you can subscribe to this forum by clicking on 'Join this site' to the right of this text.

This is the first of what will be a weekly selection of articles from the internet about what is happening within the wonder world of homeopathy.

Homeopathy and the Quantum World
Homeopathy has been under attack by a group of people who call themselves 'skeptics', but who we call 'denialists'' - because they do nothing but deny the safety and effectiveness of homeopathy. This article is the experience on one 'convert' to homeopathy, and his view of the denialists. It is an excellent article and I recommend that you read it.

The Rejection of Alternative Medicine is 'unscientific'
But don't worry about attacks on homeopathy. This article tells why ConMed is attacking all non-drug therapies - without any scientific backing. As it says, "the mainstream medical establishment's rejection of alternative healing flies in the face of hundreds, or even thousands of years of history, but it also flies in the face of good science".

Peter Hain - a homeopathy supporter
A remarkable politician, who discovered homeopathy when his son had eczema. ConMed treatment did not work. Homeopathy did. Peter Hain commissioned a project on homeopathy when he was Northern Ireland Secretary. It was a remarkably successful project. Doctors liked it. Patients liked it. And the report is now collecting dust in the Department of Health.

The long term impact of homeopathy treatment
ConMed drug treatment lasts just a few hours before having to take another noxious pill. So what are the long-term effects of homeopathy? This study finds that 'disease severity decreased significantly'; and that 'physical and mental quality of life scores also increased significantly.

Homeopathy and Weight Loss (Obesity)
An article looking at the reasons for obesity, and detailing some remedies that can be helpful for patients who want to lose weight.

Homeopathy worked for me. A case of Sciatica
Watch this video, describing how homeopathy cured a case of Sciatica. This is one of a series of short videos on U-Tube on this theme.

And click here if you would like to see a wider appraisal of how homeopathy can help to treat Sciatica.

Homeopathy and Constipation
Natural remedies for constipation can be found in this article.

Homeopathy works for animals (and farmers) too
Farmers who use homeopathy for their animals have resented remarks, fairly ignorant but quite predictable remarks, made by MPs and others, about a grant to investigate the value of homeopathy in the treatment of animals. Note, their opposition is about trials to assess how effective homeopathy is - so these MPs, and other homeopathy denialists, are not sufficiently open-minded to want to know the truth!

Homeopathy for farms, gardens and plants
And homeopathy works for plants too. The author of this book advised me about an Olive Tree I had in my garden that appeared to have died; and after a dose of Carbo Veg, it is alive and kicking still.

The uses of Saccharum Officinale.
Not the most common remedy - but read about its value in treating Hypoglycaemia, ADHD, Obesity, and much else.

The Failure of Conventional Medicine

Yet, the public are not being given the evidence of this catastrophic failure. Governments, National Health Services throughout the world, doctors, and perhaps most alarmingly of all, the mainstream media, are failing to tell us about the gross failings of the ConMed Establishment, and of Big Pharma drugs in particular.

Each week, this blog will collect together a series of articles from the internet that demonstrate this failure, and the underlying reason for an increasing number of people looking for non-drug medical therapies that are both safer and more effective.

Big Pharma drugs - the new epidemic sweeping across America (and Europe too)?
Did you know, for instance, that Big Pharma prescription drugs now kill more people than illegal drugs? Indeed, pharmaceutical drugs have become the biggest single cause of death in the USA.

Fresh doubts over flu vaccines
Click on this link if you did not know about the increasing doubts about the safety and effectiveness of flu vaccine we are all being exorted to take. No such doubts have been seen in the mainstream media - we have just been told of the benefits of the vaccine? Did you know, for example, that whilst doctor's might be recommending you to have the vaccine, doctor's themselves, in huge numbers, are refusing to have one?

Show us the evidence for the flu jab.
In fact, doctors are even asking the government, who are criticising them, to provide them with the evidence that the flu vaccine is effective.

Flu vaccines effective in 1.5% cases - not 60% as we have been told
The concern about the effectiveness of the flu vaccine is shown in this 'shock vaccine study'! A shock, of course, only if you have not discovered the truth about ConMed, and the length's Big Pharma will go to sell their drugs.

Flu? There is a better defence
And why aren't we all being told that there are better, safer, more effective alternatives to flu vaccines?

20 Vaccine 'Trivia' Facts
Of course, vaccines have never been safe. No vaccine. Is this right? Have a look at this article from Vactruth, which outlines just 20 examples when vaccines have proven to be either useless, dangerous, or both. Vactruth is one of the foremost websites investigating the dangers of vaccines, and seeking to educate a misinformed public.

US Government Agency has known all along how dangerous vaccines are
Or perhaps look at this, from Tim Bolen's website, frightening evidence that government agencies know about the dangers of vaccines, but haven't been prepared to tell us.

Vaccines and the increasing rate of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Cancer
This sort of negative evidence about vaccines, though, is coming out all the time though - so we don't have to look at the history of vaccine cover-ups in order to know that they are linked with patient harm, and the increasing rate of diseases of all kinds.

Healthy babies given dangerous and unnecessary drugs
Or, how often are we told about Big Pharma giving us drugs when we do not need them? And it would appear that not even healthy babies are not safe.

ADHD Drugs are a common source of drug reaction.
Of course, children are more susceptible to the disease-inducing-effects of drugs, and this link states that ADHD medication cause substantial adverse reactions in children.

NHS Breast Screening programme under review
And it is not just drugs that are a problem. What about useless tests that lead to taking toxic drugs - unnecessarily? Well, the BBC did report on this (26th October 2011). But the point it not just that the test is 'being questioned' but that lot's of women, who did not need treatment for breast cancer, received it - despite its toxicity and dangers.  Of course, in their reporting, the BBC did not focus on this, or inform us about the dangers (and sheer nastiness) of ConMed cancer treatment.

Pfizer pays $14.5 million to settle Detrol off-label suit
So do Big Pharma tell us that their drugs are dangerous? Of course not, they are in business to make money by selling drugs. Big Pharma companies are regularly paying out $millions of dollars in compensation for the dangerous drugs they provide for patients. In some parts of the more litigious world, they abound. And if you want more - here is another example (there are many, many more). My question is - shouldn't patients be told before they are harmed by such drugs?  But again, we rarely, if ever, hear about these dangers.

So why the cover-up? By government? By government health agencies? By the NHS? By our doctors? And above all, by the mainstream media? Why do we not hear about these compensation payments? And, indeed, who pays to set up these cover-up's?

On BBC Radio, on 25th October 2011, I heard a programme discussing the cost of treatment for Macular Degeneration. One treatment, they said, was cheaper, but it had 'side-effects'. However, not once did the programme tell the listeners what the 'side-effects' of this drug (Avastin) were!

The BBC, like most of the mainstream media, does this all the time - it salutes new wonder drugs - but never tells us about the damage drugs do to us. The question is - why? Who is controlling the BBC? Here are a couple of articles on the subject that the BBC certainly did not use.

Can using Avastin for Macular Degeneration cause blindness?
So Avastin can cause blindness? Yes, a drug used for a condition that can cause blindness is actually being treated by a drug that causes blindness! Somehow, this does not seem to be a good deal - at any price! This is especially so as Avastin has also been associated with causing fatal brain inflammation!

Macular Degeneration affects nearly 15 million Americans leading patients to seek alternative healthcare solutions
Nor, of course, did the BBC say anything about alternative treatments. This article states that there are 15 million people with Macular Degeneration in the USA alone - and that many people are seeking alternative therapy. The article focuses on Acupuncture - but homeopathy, and many other therapies, are a safer alternative to Avastin.

Insomnia Drugs linked to 36% increase in death

It has been calculated that people who use drugs to aid sleep do sleep longer. About 11 minutes longer, each night!

So - is it worth it?

The Health Services Institute (HSI) in a recent newsletter reminded us that many sleeping drugs cause dangerous adverse reactions - like sleep-walking, sleep-driving, and sleep-cooking. But HSI say they are much worse than this, and quote a psychiatrist, Dr Kripke.

          "The use of sleeping pills, including zolpidem [the generic name for Zolfresh and Ambien], is associated with higher mortality, and there are 18 studies that show that." 

So is it worth it? 

Researchers have shown that powerful sleeping drugs cause death by inhibiting the respiratory and central nervous system, and by impairing alertness, co-ordination and reaction time.

So unless you want to boost the profits of Big Pharma companies, sleeping drugs are best avoided.
