For those of you who couldn’t make it, you missed an incredible night at Mrs. Murphy’s Irish Bistro on Linclon Ave. We had about 50 people turn out for the presentation of, “7 Health Secrets Even You MD Doesn’t Know.”
I had so many of you come up to me afterwards during dinner to thank us for sharing my passion about the many truths that YOU, the consumer, are unaware of regarding so many over-the-counter and prescription meds that are literally destroying the health of this great nation. One woman in particular was from Estonia in Eastern Europe, and she mentioned how she had never heard of a doctor’s office give such an educational yet entertaining event for their community. I tried to explain to her that this isn’t common in the United States, which is why we do it. We feel obligated to get the message out that so-called modern medicine is not the answer to health. While it may be helpful in some circumstances, most people are being bamboozled into think they need a pill for
Another woman asked a question during the lecture about her father in law, whom is in his 60’s and taking Blood Pressure and Cholesterol meds. She stated how concerned she was that he thinks he is “OK” because now his numbers look good on paper, yet his lifestyle of no exercise and nightly ice cream scoops, with a beer belly to boot haven’t changed a bit! She was frustrated that his doctors haven’t tried to address this. She wanted to know what she could do to help him understand that just because he is taking medication,
it doesn’t mean he is functioning better. This is such a difficult situation in so many, many ways. But I’ll try to answer this frustration dilemma the best I can in this email, for those of you with similar concerns.
The first problem is that people are being told they are healthier when their blood pressure, cholesterol, or even bone density scores, measure better on paper after taking the prescription medication to help “thier numbers.” The fact is that a guy who is still 50 pounds overweight with a terrible diet and no exercise is not somehow “Miraculously” ok after popping a pill!!!! The reason why is that his body is not actually functioning better, which prevents his body from making the necessary changes to fix the problem.
Don’t even get me started on the potential side effects, which that alone should be reason enough to not take these “Preventative Drugs,” which how can you call something preventative when it causing something else? Just read the label on the drugs they want people to take? It is scary. You see, the medications are only addressing the symptom that is the result of the problem.
The second problem is more psychological. People generally think they are ok if they feel fine. This is very similar to not having your car tuned up or having the oil changed until you hear a bad noise coming from the engine. We are taught since childhood that if you feel fine you are healthy? Then maybe you are smart enough to have a physical exam, such as a prostate exam, mammagram, colonoscopy, or stress test, which all only tell you if you have disease, but don’t tell you how close you are to getting it. So you see, someone can walk out of an exam for their heart in which they pass the ridiculously easy treadmill test, which compares their ability to other sick people not to really healthy people, and feel good because the doctor says, “You passed, in which he really means, “You didn’t fail”…..There is a really big difference you know. Just ask any parent….”Do you want your kids to pass with flying colors or JUST NOT FAIL?” I guess it depends on if you care or not too!
I hope everyone is getting the point here. Health is more about how you function not just how you feel. The current medical model is failing this country and the average American over 55 years of age is taking 8-10 prescription drugs a day! Preventative Health measure through better chemistry isn’t working…just look at the numbers. Lipitor for example made 25 BILLION with a “B” in profits last year, yet all peer reviewed studies show better exercise and diet is much more effective, with no side effects. They are now trying to get Lipitor approved for children, to prevent them from having heart disease as adults…..ARE THEY SERIOUS? They are because it would help them extend their patent rights on the drug. If you actually think it is not about money you are living under a pretty BIG rock. Wake up and save your family from this destructive and damaging way of thinking that is rotting our nation to the core! My own father even woke up just in time. He had a heart attack two years ago at age 59. He was one of the 25% who don’t die the first time they have one. He finally decided then to start listening to me. He is now 62 and functioning great. He takes ZERO
prescription medications, walks a mile everyday, eats a ton of fruits and vegetables, and visits a wellness practitioner every other week such as his doctor of chiropractic to help balance his nervous system and body structure and function. He still sees his medical doctor, but once a year because that is just an appointment to tell him if any disease is present. He sees his chiropractor twice a month minimum to help maintain
health and function by addressing the cause naturally! He decided to be healthy by choice and by being pro-active not re-active. I hope for you the reader, you won’t need a heart attack to wake you up like it took for my very lucky Dad.
In a time where our culture seems to embrace the organic and natural way, it is disturbing to see the percentage of non-natural births increase every year in the United States. This is not meant to make someone feel bad if you needed an intervention like a c section, but the WHO (World Health Organization) […]
1) Shoulder/Neck sprain /strain While “kipping” is not the cause of all of the time, it is a factor for most cross-fit gym goers. While kipping is great for gymnastic movement, coordination, and getting extra reps in when the classic strict pull up would not work, the “kip” can easily lead to shoulder/neck strain/sprain, and […]
