Another Good Doctor or Two

© MMXIII V.1.0.6
by Morley Evans

We must not whine and blame others for our situation. We should look to ourselves first. However sometimes others are in fact responsible for our situation which we did not make ourselves.

With the exceptions of Dr. Cowan (1947), Dr. MacKenzie (1951), Dr. Reich (1973), Dr. Cenaiko (1998), and an anonymous doctor in Flin Flon who prescribed an antibiotic in 1970 when I had pneumonia one winter when I was working in the bush, my experience with doctors has been uniformly bad. 

Had doctors been able to overcome their prejudice against Vitamin D, my childhood, adolescence and early adulthood would have been completely different and better. My doctors can take complete responsibility for misdiagnosing me and making me live in Hell.

My problems were not huge medical mysteries. They were simple. But simple things caused huge problems for me: they destroyed my childhood; they nearly killed me more than once. If doctors cannot even solve simple problems that any elementary school child could solve, what can anyone expect when doctors are faced with complicated problems? 

My case is simple. It is important to more than me because it raises important questions.

All of the doctors I have had were in Regina — despite my having lived in (and visited) many places around the world (including nearby Saskatoon) where I didn't have a doctor. Doctors could once push me around but now, I ask, "Who do you think you are, doctor-boy?"

"It Won't Hurt You" [1] sums up my medical history. Unfortunately, what your doctors are doing, my dear, will hurt you and you'd better be careful.

Happily, "Modern Medicine" is coming to the end of its rope and it's a long drop from there. The Internet has made it possible for medicine's victims to exchange information. The general population is catching on. Most importantly, the Age of Antibiotics [2] is over. Arrogant, ignorant, lazy, stupid, greedy, lying and incompetent doctors who have over-prescribed antibiotics since Alexander Fleming gave them their magic bullet in 1945 are responsible.

Doctors can share their shame with the pharmaceutical industry which has been running the most successful criminal operation in history and with the "food" industry which is responsible for foisting poison onto trusting unsuspecting people. Happily, people are catching on.

If anyone thinks I am throwing the baby out with the bathwater, he can watch "Hunting the Nightmare Bacteria." Apart from the realization that we are moving back to a time before there were antibiotics, we are told that cholesterol drugs will still work and so will blood pressure medicines and cancer treatments. 

These work inasmuch as they make money for pharmaceutical companies, BUT THEY DO NOT WORK, Doc. The reason the pharmaceutical companies have abandoned development of antibacterials is they don't make any money making antibacterials. That tells us everything we need to know.

Prostate problems affect most men who are older than 50. Medical prostate treatment is one more thing that doesn't work, but urologists are among the highest-paid specialists. Hysterectomy is never necessary but surgery is profitable. The only standard here is: If something makes money, it is good.

The future looks bright if it is a future without these morons and you start looking after your own health. Find out what works.

I remember a Star trek Episode in which Dr Bones and others had to travel back to the 20th century (don't remember how they did it) and find something in a hospital, he said words to the effect "The 20th century medicine was Medieval." This was decades ago - I know it was Sci Fi but it had a pretty good message - I always remembered it

Before Alexander Fleming discovered Penicillin doctors were bleeding patients with leeches. These leeches are still bleeding patients.

Too bad we can't all be rescued from 21st century medicine by Dr. McCoy and Captain James T. Kirk. Maybe medicine will improve. Let's hope it does.
