This is a look at why the healthcare system does not promote cures and to some extent does not even want a cure.
All the money people are donating to non-profits to find a cure may make donors feel good, but all its doing is simply making the people running the non-profits wealthy. The reality, they also do not want a cure. To find one would put them out of business.
Besides, many cures already exist. So, "...why didn't my doctor tell me if these cures exist?" Here you will discover why they don't tell you. Sometimes, according to court documents, the AMA or people within the government have conspired to prevent some cures from seeing the light of day.
Sometimes, it is not conspiracy, it is simply good for business for you to be sick.
Is is logical for a business to work to put itself out of business?
Imagine you are in a room of business people who make money helping people with a disease. This includes the non-profits who raise money for the same. Imagine you watch the following question asked.
With a show of hands, how many business owners and investors who hold shares in or profit from facilities that 'treat' people with Alzheimer's, MS, Parkinson's, or other diseases would like to see a cure and put themselves out of business? Would you be happy to see a free and readily available cure for the diseases that provide profits for you and allow you to employee so many?
Remember, not only are you going to lose your salary, you will be putting on the street potentially 100s of your employees and ancillary staff. Then the other businesses that make money off you will likewise be hurt. Multiply this by the numbers of businesses that make profits from disease and you are talking hundreds of thousands of people out of work.
Lets not forget the non-profits too. Some of the bigger ones spend close to half their budgets to get more donation money. That means a lot of people and businesses that make money off the non-profits will also hurt, not to mention the executives who may make upwards of $350,000 a year salary. A lot of people will be out of business and executives could end up second homeless.
We have to face the reality....to eliminate disease may be a cost we cannot afford.
Sometimes it is not a conspiracy theory...it is just good business. Who goes into business to put themselves out of business? Then again, sometimes it may be a conspiracy theory or maybe an actual conspiracy.
The simple answer, if he did know, he can't tell you.
People often think that all doctors are altruistic, interested in the best health of the patient. While some may be, doctors work in and are bound by a system that is treatment focused and profit driven. Their focus is not on curing. Healthcare is in the business of treating, not curing people. Doctors work in a scheme that limits what they can and cannot do. Step outside the way all other doctors treat and they can lose their license.
Then a few doctors are outright dishonest. Of these, we only hear of the most egregious. For example, Federal prosecutors went after a Dallas doctor who made nearly $375 million, considered the biggest Medicare fraud in history. More info at the Medicare Fraud Center website.
According to the Medicare Fraud Center, 75% of all medical insurance fraud is the result of doctors actions. The amount stolen is in the neighborhood of 60 billion every year...money we are paying for out of our pockets. Only a fraction is recovered.
While this may not be the practice of most doctors, it shows a failing of the system. Few of these, when caught, do jail time, most only pay a fine. Even worse, only a small fraction of the offenders ever get caught.
Beyond the bad doctors, there is a long history of documented medical fraud, theft and outstandingly, medical conspiracy by the very organization that backs the doctors, the AMA. No, it is not a theory, it is a fact according to the Federal Courts and in the Congressional Record.
In the book, When Healing Becomes and Crime, according to author Kenny Ausubel, the executive officers knew and supported for over 12 years that the "AMA paid the salaries and expenses for a team of more than a dozen medical doctors, lawyers and support staff for the expressed purpose of conspiring (overtly and covertly) with others in medicine to first contain, and eventually, destroy the profession of chiropractic in the United States..."
In 1990, an antitrust lawsuit against the AMA was won. The federal court ruled that the AMA had violated the Sherman Act by "conducting illegal 'restraint of trade' actions directed at chiropractors....." The 1990 verdict against the AMA followed three other antitrust cases against the association in 1978, 1980 and 1986, all of which were settled.
The courts found the AMA guilty of conspiracy! This is not theory.Interesting read on the symbol adopted by medicine....Its Stranger than Fiction
Caduceus vs Asclepius
The 1990 decision was not something new. It has happened before. Note in this report, vitamins at the time were referred to as drugs.
Note an example of such a clinic that the powers went after.
The Hoxsey therapy was found 'comparable to surgery, radium and x-ray in its effectiveness,' only without the dangerous side effects of other treatments of the time. How good was his treatment? The American Medical Association and the Food and Drug Administration admitted that "his treatment was able to cure some forms of cancer.""The AMA and the FDA admitted that this treatment was able to cure some forms of cancer in court testimony."
In a report to congress in 1953, the AMA, NCI (National Cancer Institute), and FDA were found to have organized a 'conspiracy' to 'suppress' a fair, unbiased assessment of Hoxsey's treatment.
Morris Fishbein, the editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) from 1924-1949 was convicted of Racketeering. No wonder that he was the AMA's advocate for medical orthodoxy. Their orthodoxy is advocating anything they do as acceptable and anything outside of what they do as quackery. One example, JAMA supported and took money from the tobacco industry for years.
Perhaps one of the most damming things to happen to Dr. Fishbein was when he was cross-examined by Hoxsey's lawyers. Under oath, Dr. Fishbein admitted he failed anatomy in medical school and had never completed his internship prior to starting work at the Journal. This means he never practiced medicine nor had ever treated a single patient in his entire career.Dr. Fishbein defined a quack as "one who pretends to medical skill he does not possess." The mirror had caught a perfect reflection.
You can read about this in "When Healing Becomes A Crime" by Kenny Ausubel, (page 117)
In a 2010 attempt to defend its self from "Conspiracy Theories," Ardis Hoven, MD, then board chair of the AMA, said it welcomes "the diversity of physician opinions, but falsehoods and conspiracy theories do nothing to advance the common goals physicians share."
What exactly are the common goals? The above examples are not theories. They got caught and were exposed.
Dateline: June 1, 2016 Regarding FDA Fraud
A federal lawsuit filed against past Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg, her husband, Peter Brown, and Johnson & Johnson are charged with conspiracy, racketeering and colluding to conceal the dangers of the antibiotic Levaquin, made by Johnson & Johnson.
The suit was filed by Larry Klayman, a former federal prosecutor, who claims the parties concealed the drug's dangers for financial gain. Peter Brown is an executive in the hedge fund Renaissance Technologies, which held hundreds of millions of dollars of Johnson & Johnson stock.
The suit charges that..."While Defendant Hamburg was FDA Commissioner, her husband, Defendant Brown's annual income, not coincidentally, increased from a reported $10 million in 2008 to an estimated $125 million in 2011 and an estimated $90 million in 2012, due in whole or in part to Defendants' racketeering conspiracy to withhold information about the devastating, life threatening, and deadly effects of Levaquin."
From Web Research:
Dr. Stephen Barrett of the Quackwatch website has been exposed in court as having ties to the AMA, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
Dr. Barrett also admitted that he was not a Medical Board Certified psychiatrist because he had failed the certification exam. In the past, Barrett had provided what was considered expert testimony as a psychiatrist while testifying in numerous court cases.
Barrett has also reportedly filed almost 40 defamation lawsuits against people across the country and had not won one single one at trial.
The Quack Watch website tends to focus on bashing people and the nutritional industry. He does not seem to share the various pharmaceutical scams and biased research bought and paid for by pharmaceutical companies in order to get drugs approved that are later found to be dangerous. Numerous drugs that were approved by the FDA were later found to be deadly and were removed from the market. We only learn of the biased research after the deaths of so many.
While he does occasionally provide good information and exposes scams, there seems to be an obvious bias against anything natural.
Consider the Alzheimer's drugs as noted in The New York Times: "Alzheimer’s Drugs Offer No Help, Study Finds" By Benedict Carey, October 12, 2006. The drugs are worthless and could have harmful side effects according to the article. Yet there is no mention of such on the 'Quackers' website.
Or how about the instance in 2004, when a division of Pfizer admitted guilt and agreed to pay $430 million in criminal and civil liability related to promoting the drug for off-label use to doctors. Again, not a word.
And on Quacks: Is Stephen Barrett a Quack?
One doctor posted the following...
The Quackwatch website says dictionaries define quack as "a pretender to medical skill; a charlatan" and "one who talks pretentiously without sound knowledge of the subject discussed."
Stephen Barrett, M.D. has not provided any credentials as having any expertise in nutrition science. In the opinion of some doctors, Stephen Barrett, M.D., can be easily defined as a Quack since he pretends to have skills or knowledge in the use of supplements and he talks pretentiously without clinical expertise of herbal and nutritional modalities of treatment.
We need to become better educated consumers. We need to learn more about and take charge of our own health. There are treatments that end diabetes, put MS into remission and stop cancer in its tracks. We know this because of the years of people writing us as well as personally seeing this happen in those we have helped.
Go, start being proactive about your health. Do it now.
And don't throw your doctor out with the bath water. Tell him you want a better option. You want a natural treatment but you want it from him. While he may say there is no research to prove the natural treatments work, remind him that so much of the research he uses is bought, paid for and biased by 'Big Pharma.'
If enough people speak up, maybe change will happen. Or if you are cynical, wait till the end of this system of things (read: end of the world as we know it) things will have to change then.
