The first source of death is heart attack and stroke (52%)
The second cause is cancer (23%)
And your third cause is drugs,
both correctly and incorrectly prescribed
(from “Death by Prescription” by Ray D. Strand, MD)
The word pharmacy derives from the Greek “pharmakeuticos”, from “pharmakeus” meaning “preparer of medicine, poisoner”
Western drugs are a (relatively) new modality the ones often confuse Western medicine with health.
But which is not what doctors do. Doctors are taught to keep us alive. They have not do with wellness, except insofar because it helps keep us alive. They may advise us to hold our levels of cholesterol down, as well as to stop smoking these are (from your doctor’s perspective) survival issues, not wellness issues. That these things do effect on our wellness is incidental (in the doctor’s perspective).
If it weren’t for doctors, I would not here today. When I was 25 I got tuberculosis on the kidney, most unusual because tuberculosis is likely to attack the lungs. Nonetheless I got it within the right kidney and I was at bad shape, urinating blood and pus and I was en route out if the doctors stepped with their powerful drugs and surgery and saved my well being. I would have left without their help.
The point is… I was kept alive – which can be what doctors do – but I WAS NOT CURED.
After the operation, in the end signs with the tuberculosis germ had disappeared, I was still being unwell. I had no energy, I was depressed, I nodded off during the day for no apparent reason (doctors put me on methedrine and keep me awake!), I caught colds plus the flu easily, I had impossible levels of body odour (an authentic problem for anyone 25 and dating girls!)… put simply, I was alive although not well.
You see, that’s the difference. Doctors have zero training in curing people or perhaps wellness. They can get rid on the germ, or invading substance – they’re good at that – however they do not address the actual CONDITIONS that allowed that germ to thrive within the first place.
Doctors are conditioned to, which enable it to only, part of when symptoms manifest, at which the disease has progressed to the issue that only harsh measures – drugs and surgery – will help! Which needless to say is risky, not forgetting costly.
Now there IS a dependence on this. A wide range of people (like myself) let things slide so much that nothing but drastic intervention helps keep them alive and I daresay many men and women (myself included) are alive today only on account of drastic intervention
But that comes at a cost and collateral damage is high.
In a country as small as Australia (20 million population) 18,000 people die annually at the hands of doctors (The Bulletin, Sep. 2006). That is 345 people weekly, or 49 people every day dying on account of “medical bungles” (as The Bulletin called them). That is a large amount of deaths in the country as small as ours.
Worse, another 50,000 are injured on account of medical treatment. That is 961 injuries weekly, or 137 injuries each day.
That, again, will be a lot, for the small country.
But wait! It gets worse…
The above figures are just the ones we KNOW about.
There is, according to The Bulletin, “chronic under reporting” by doctors and hospitals, hence the actual figures are in all probability much higher again.
And these aren’t just numbers. They are real people suffering real injuries or having their lives cut short. The September issue of The Bulletin, from where we just quoted, featured a stunningly beautiful middle Eastern girl, about 19 yrs old, whose life had been ahead of her, nonetheless it came to intense end as a result of a medical mistake.
AND WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THIS. If we want medicine to component of and keep us alive when the body break down, we have to accept the side effects.
We cannot get it both ways. We cannot use a benign medicine that is certainly drastic while doing so. Western prescription medication is harsh and deadly. It keeps us alive by killing. The word antibiotics means that: anti-bios, against life. Medical treatments kill cells indiscriminately, the good cells as well as the bad cells inside the hope which our good cells outnumber the bad ones!
And which is a completely modality compared to the use on the mangosteen along with wholefood supplements.
The difference is that this. Western medicine removes or suppresses the symptoms, while supplements (the excellent ones) remove the root conditions which bred the symptoms.
Based for the above, my recommendation is that this:
1 – always opt for supplements first – (that may be, before noticeable symptoms) – for PREVENTION.
2 – if symptoms prove but are not life-threatening, go with supplements and also a sensibly altered lifestyle (that’s, absolutely nothing to radical).
3 – if symptoms persist, or if it’s a life or death situation, you may ought to go for drugs or surgery, but… make mangosteen (or possibly a good supplement) AT THE SAME TIME. This will maximise the effect with the medical intervention, while minimizing along side it effects.
I must stress: drugs get their place, but only like a LAST RESORT! Drugs kill! Do not ever be complacent about taking them. Treat them such as a rattlesnake, a tad of whose venom may cure you, but an excessive amount will kill you.
