Back to Business – Slowly

I left you on 25 July headed to the hospital and it has been one revealing experience. I arrived at 1000 that morning. After pre-admission I was taken to my room. Two days turned into five days. And even though I had to go through the medical system I am so much against and disagree with, I received a much-needed rest and discovered that CHI St Vincent and Staff are caring and compassionate people. The food wasn’t bad either.

Rest?

For the next 4 days, I was prodded and poked and awakened every 4 hours to run vitals and make sure I was asleep.

Ya’ll keep in mind, this is the first time I have been in the hospital as a patient since Aug of 1973 and that was minor surgery to have a pin removed from my left shoulder that was installed 3 months previous. So almost 50 years of “progress” had been made in what they call “modern medicine.”

Tests

They ran one test that afternoon. Took blood samples 2 times that day. My doctor came in the next morning. I talked with him and he told me what they were going to do. Over the next 2 days, they ran 4 tests on my heart, lungs, circulatory system. No blockages. No plaque in the arteries. Inlet and outlet of heart OK. I was already using an inhaler for COPD diagnosed in March.

Diagnosis

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a chronic progressive condition that affects the pumping power of your heart muscles. While often referred to simply as “heart failure,” CHF specifically refers to the stage in which fluid builds up around the heart and causes it to pump inefficiently.

Stages. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity are all risk factors for CHF. There are four different stages of heart failure: A, B, C, and D.

Unusual, since my blood pressure, every time it was taken in the hospital was normal. 120 to 130/80 to 85. Normal for a man of my age is 135/88. Red Flag #1.

I raised the question with the doc, “since every bodies veins are different, how can anyone be average” The Doc retorted back with some smart comment and left the room. Red Flag #2.

Over the last 20+ years, I have never had a high cholesterol problem. Red Flag #3.

But I have had an overweight problem ever since I was 7 years old and have been from 20 to 50 lbs over my ideal weight at different times over the years. But Doc didn’t dwell much on this. He had to get me on DRUGS for cholesterol, HBP, blood thinners, chemical potassium, and a second drug for HBP. Red Flag #4.

Such is the Allopathic Medical/Pharmaceutical Industry Complex within Mystery Babylon the Great.

Rested and Back

Even though I have been inactive in the Community, I have tried to keep up with the daily emails. And make comments when I can. I had gotten to the position of 202 in ranking and then started to drop to where I dropped down to 4200. It has been bouncing back and forth every day, sitting at 1291 right now. I have not written any content since July and with this piece it will actually be my first since I went in the hospital.

Red Flags

I mentioned several Red Flags that I had above about what was said in the hospital. I covered quickly the reasons for Red Flags 1-3. Number 4 concerns Drugs. And this is going to lead into a discussion of Naturopathic and Allopathic medicine and the reasons why our society has dropped Naturopathic medicine which has a history of over 6000 years of use for the Allopathic Medicine and only a use of a little over 100 years of Failure.

Where We Are Today

In the early 1900’s there were many types of healing practices in the US and Europe: chiropractors, naturopathy, midwives, homeopathy, osteopathy, herbal medicines, diet, and steam baths. Western medicine in the 18th and 19th centuries was called Heroic Medicine and included methods such as blood-letting, purging, leeching, blistering, mercury and lead therapy.

Through much of history, healers were those who worked with herbs and food and charged little or nothing for their expertise.

The rise of heroic medicine brought about the idea of healing as a job. Heroic medicine practitioners charged more money for treatments than traditional healers. In many places, only the wealthy class could afford a doctor of heroic medicine.

Because heroic medicine treatment was so often unpleasant and often lethal, more of the populace chose the milder treatments of the herbalists. Thomas Jefferson called heroic medicine physicians an “inexperienced and presumptuous band of medical tyros let loose upon the world.”

John D Rockefeller devised the idea to use coal tar, a petroleum derivative, to make substances that affect the body and nervous system. This was in the late 1800s. These substances are known by another name today, Drugs or Pharmaceuticals. Rockefeller just needed a vehicle to extend and capitalize on petroleum derivatives as medicines.

Petrochemicals were a new discovery that could be patented and which would bring about maximum revenues. The only thing stopping Rockefeller was the fact that herbal and natural remedies were popular in the USA at that time. About half of the medical professionals in the US were practicing holistic medicine, based on understandings from Europeans and Native Americans.

The American Medical Association, AMA, was founded in 1847 but was struggling. John D Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie through their various foundations began funding the AMA to eliminate the competition of the Naturopathic and Holistic healers. An American educator, Abraham Flexner, was hired to write a report, published and given to Congress in 1910, that concluded there were too many doctors and medical schools in the US and that all natural healing modalities which had existed for hundreds of years were unscientific quackery. Following the report, over half of the medical colleges were closed down. Natural medications and homeopathy were rubbished, and some of the medical professionals who practiced holistic medicine were sent to prison.

They would take the plants that were already being used to treat diseases and sicknesses. Then they would break down the plants to the structural properties that were responsible for the healing and Synthetically make them with coal tars and petroleum distillates. The big challenge to what they were doing, Our bodies survive on Food form nutrition from nature instead of synthetic nutrition created in a laboratory.
