For God's Sake Don't Go to the Doctor's Office

Medical errors constitute the THIRD leading cause of death.  Heart disease and cancer are the leading causes of death (and how long have the big foundations and medical science been searching for a "cure" for those diseases?).  Add in the 40,000+ deaths from prescription drugs and you have one hell of an AMA and Big Pharma death machine.

So then we die when we get infections? Allow a broken bone to not be set?

Like all things in life, use wisdom folks.

Their analysis, published in the BMJ on Tuesday, shows that "medical errors" in hospitals and other health care facilities are incredibly common and may now be the third leading cause of death in the United States -- claiming 251,000 lives every year, more than respiratory disease, accidents, stroke and Alzheimer's.

Missing from the OP and article are the mention of broken bones and infections that you refer to. The medical error of leaving a sponge inside the patient that causes the infection is the correct context.

I quit going to doctors after my last 2 illnesses. They couldn't fix my inflammation and pain, not that they tried that hard. I went to Google searches and natural herbs and got back on my feet, swearing to never trust the pill-pushers again. Let them diagnose and operate. But get a second or third opinion and research like hell if it's a serious condition.

Dude, there are natural ways to cure infections. Antibiotics are not the cure-alls people think they are. As for vaccines, I had scarlet fever as a child. It is even rarer than mumps and measles. No vaccine was ever invented.

I give credit to modern sanitation systems. But now we are polluting our ground water with medicines and synthetic hormones that pass through our systems and toilets. 

My brother-in-law died from medical malpractice. His family got a big settlement. A specialist insisted that my father have a procedure, though we all protested. We finally gave in. He died a day later from complications. When Dad's regular doctor returned from his vacation, he was furious that we let this happen.

No point in going unless you swallow their poison "cure" as well. The cost of such a visit? Insurance? Outright theft.

Here's my doctor story from today's Mom files. I swear that I am not making this up!

I've been having a health issue that I've deemed to be chronic but not life threatening and it's progressed to being painful. The herbs and vitamins, baking soda, alkaline diet, etc didn't bring improvement and my last round of acupuncture (sideline with the local chiropractor) didn't help either.

So, I found an acupuncture clinic a half hour away run by an Asian man (my preferred needle-person of choice) figuring I'd get some TCM along with the jabs. Do first impressions count? The clinic is in a strip mall with a big “acupuncture” sign across the front and neon $55 signs in the windows. There's a large banner over the door advertising weight loss for $35. If I was back on the west coast I'd just go to Chinatown and find some back alley herb shop but this will have to do. I was so focused on the signs I can't remember if there were bars on the windows. That would add to the ambiance !

As I step into the waiting area there are 2 women assistants, both Mexican and both 40 – 50 lbs overweight. Helloooo, weight loss for $35 comes to mind. One of the ladies is conversing in Spanish to another client while the other greets me in English. Phew! I sit down to fill out some forms omitting anything too personal like my SS# and Driver's license #.. I already know insurance is not accepted and I'll be paying in cash so nope, they don't need my numbers.

On the table in the corner are some magazines and some plastic holders that contain Watchtower tracts. Whaaat?? Maybe some JW's came around and the doc let them leave their materials. Nope. The doctor trained in Taiwan and supposedly has been in the USA for 30 years, speaks very broken English and is a Jehovah's Witness. Today's treatment will be because of Jesus ( one of the words I understood) and after identifying painful areas, proceeds with the needle jabbing. Finally! This I understand. Then the lady assistant enters the room and takes these cords with alligator clip attachments off the wall. Uh, roach clips don't have cords like that. She clips the cords to the needles and plugs them into a small machine. Ok, I am familiar with electromedicine and that's a good thing because the doctor speaks in metaphors using pictures of microwave ovens on the wall. Metaphors can be difficult to understand even when the English is not broken !!

I'm still waiting for the TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) and when I inquire, he's says no! Jesus! And then tells me about patches. I am now the proud owner of a prolotherapy patch (aka medicated bandage with only Jesus knows what on it) that will cause the skin to blister to a size larger than the bandage which is 1-1/2” wide. This is very exciting! Instead of losing blood for expensive testing at the allopath I'm gaining a nasty toxic boil that can only be removed by the doctor at tomorrow's visit. I am most thankful for the pair of English speaking ladies that work the front desk because at first sign of irritation I would have ripped that bandage off in a heartbeat.

Should you embark upon the world of alternative medicine consider it to be a wondrous adventure and for less than a hundred bucks you can be healed by a kindly man with a big heart who happens to be a Jehovah's Witness employing 2 people that seemingly nullify his advertising. The odds of this particular scenario seem astronomical but I'll take it because it's far superior to the boring muzak of the allopath's office and the “doctor” that makes me wait an hour for a five minute visit where I am quizzed about my exercise habits and whether or not I smoke.

I shall update with highly detailed pictures of aforementioned nasty boil and superb video of the clog dancing that I'll now be able to perform. KIDDING.

Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do."

FACT: Not everyone has a gun, but almost everyone has at least one doctor.

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat immediately. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!

Note: Out of concern for the public at large, the statistics on lawyers have been withheld for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.

I broke my femur when I was 21. I couldn't really move or get off the ground. I wouldn't have survived between the blood loss and the infection.

Doctors have their place. They are good at putting you back together when you are about to die.

Other than that, f*** em. The put my leg back on crooked anyhow.
