Simple way to protect yourself in all medical decisions. Get our opinion first. Why? Because when you first get the opinion of someone who stands in opposition to medicinal approaches, you will at the very least be conditioned to better test the theory placed in front of you by the medical model.
Remember, we are not “Against Medicine”, we are against the model by which it is disseminated. In order to combat the constant barrage of “take a pill, its easy, its effective, just do it”; you will need to arm yourself with the truth of its impact. When you sit in front of the TV, laughing at the voice over reading a list of side effects, you are strong. When you are sitting in front of the doctor being told that you or your child is in need of a medication, you are weak.
They might be right, but have you ever treated yourself or a child when you later realized you probably didn’t need to? That one medication wasn’t the end of their life, but if you are avoiding certain foods, certain chemicals, do you not realize that a medication is worse than all of those? Sure it might have a positive impact on a symptom, but it doesn’t heal. Don’t fall for that. You heal, your body is self healing and you should be thankful for it. Stick with that truth, and you’ll be amazed.
My daughters are crazy healthy, and a big part of it is because they aren’t chemically doped. They wanted a “dum dum” blowpop thingy (i don’t know what to call it) at the bank today, because it was offered. I said no, would you like to consume something loaded with chemicals? Artificial flavors, preservatives, sulfuric acid laden high fructose corn syrup? They both said “no”. Then we went home and I offered them an organic lollipop. But both still refused, strengthened by their own resolve at the bank to now avoid the sugar. 5 yrs and 8 yrs old, living a life free of medications. Brooke still hasn’t ever had anything.
I think of the time that I held Ansley in my arms at 3AM, watching her fight for each breath, thinking, “God, I know that I am right because you have filled me with peace, so please let this pass quickly so Laura can be at peace as well”. Shortly after her temp dropped from 104, and her breathing normalized. The next day she was fine. I had adjusted her three times in the night, and stayed awake for most of the night. I did it because I wanted to be sure.
Most of you would have ran to the hospital. Thinking that the breathing was definitely a major problem. A hospital staff member would have thought breathing treatments were necessary. Had you not listened to them, you could have ended up like this couple, without a kid (click the link). Because the state would love to take your child away for not following the hospitals treatment plan.
All of this stuff can be improved upon by asking us first. I have a _____, what should I do? My child has been diagnosed with strep, what would you do? My ____ has a ______ and I am unsure who to talk to. All of these questions can save you and your family much heartache. Ask us first. If we don’t have an answer, we’ll find one. We like to research.
In parting, i wanted to leave you with some of the negative reports that we have read over the years about different medications. And let you decide.
Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen – taken daily for two years, patients were found to have an increased risk of heart disease due to loss of elasticity in the arterial wall, hardening, and generalized increase in blood pressure. Reason – increased permeability of the vascular wall due to blood thinning caused arterial hardening.
Aspirin – daily use was shown to increase the risk of stroke, also having a negative effect on arterial walls, especially in the arteries of the head and neck.
Antibiotics – shown to have a cumulative effect of increasing cancer risk in both the NEJM and JAMA. Weakening of overall immune function increased risk of breast cancer as well as other more deadly cancers with greater time of use. 170 total days of dosage in a lifetime doubled breast cancer risk in women.
Diuretics – by pushing inflammation out of the extra cellular space, these pills have been shown to create toxicity, and have a generalized increased cancer risk.
Steroids – among other things, will compromise tissue permeability, so that dependence on the chemical to maintain normal (culturally normal) levels of swelling becomes present, thuis without the drug, a near disease state exists.
Antacids – increased risk of liver cancer. Including baby zantac.
These are some of the basic ones. But I would be remiss to leave statin drugs alone. All of you who are taking cholesterol lowering meds thinking you are saving your lives. You are actually killing yourselves. To inhibit the production of Co-Q-10 is ridiculous. But the worst part of it, is how insane the idea is that cholesterol lowering meds would decrease heart disease, when the drugs have been around since 1987, in the form of Mevacor, and yet heart disease has never dropped, never been reduced, and even in tightly watched populations.
Lipitor is the only one who was able to manipulate their study just right to utilize the smallest sample selection to show a correlation between lipitor, and a minor reduction in heart disease risk. One out of thousands of studies? (they might have more than one now, but it hasn’t been anywhere near as many dissenting studies)
Get off the med train. You’ll be happier without. But remember, we are not medical doctors, and we are not allowed by law to give medical advice. If you want off these things, you need to talk to your MD. But if you want to avoid getting on them, you need to talk to us.
Be well and Blessed! – Dr. E
