Three things from the medical establishment made me as mad as hell this week.
First up is the fascinating new syndrome called Diagnosis Creep.
Like tax creep (where we all pay except for the very rich), it is designed to make us all feel ill.
Years ago, It was the job of GPs…Read More
After 50 years of drug dealing, I hereby apologise for causing untold damage to humans.
It was inadvertent, all very scientific and ethical (almost), with doctors prescribing and me dispensing. This was at the behest of multi-national drug conglomerates who coerced, bribed and funded doctors to embark on overseas fact-finding expeditions.
Every year as winter approaches, we have scare stories in the media about how damaging influenza will be.
In summer, the same scare stories are all about the bushfire risk.
I suspect that Roche, the makers of Tamiflu, have some part in the scare-mongering. Tamiflu — and an injection made by CSL in Australia — are the…Read More
Years ago, my three young cousins and I watched Charlton Heston (the greatest ham actor of all), play the last man alive in the B-grade movie classic The Omega Man.
Charlton — or Charlie as we call him — spent his days driving through a deserted Los Angeles, shooting at anything that moved, playing chess with…Read More
The latest news from America and Europe is that high cholesterol readings are not that important.
Trans-fats and sugar do more damage, particularly in young people. So an extremely conservative medical system here in Australia, allied with advertising for junk food and sugar-laden products aimed at the young, is doing great…Read More
My career in pharmacy treating so-called mental illness began with me dishing out large quantities of tri-cyclic tranquillisers.
These never achieved tranquillity, but they dulled a patient’s brain so they were more easily managed by doctors, society and families. Among the many side-effects of these tranquillisers was weight-gain, so we suddenly had an epidemic…Read More
The more Big Pharma’s drug researchers concentrate on changing every natural system in the human body, the more convinced I become of holistic medicine’s many benefits.
Ultimately, drug companies prey on our fear of growing old and tell us that, with a little help from them, we can stay healthy forever.
They have tampered with brain chemistry, gut…Read More
Great healers are born, not made.
Years ago, Bill Mitchell worked for the South Melbourne Football Club (spuriously converted to the Sydney Swans so the AFL could sell TV rights).
Bill would charge five shillings for each player treated and then donate the money to a Christian charity. He treated all VFL players…Read More
Since prehistoric times, we’ve grown and developed with the sun. Now, in a vain attempt to counter the increased risk of skin cancers — particularly melanoma — we are depriving our children of all contact with the sun. Kids in schools are covered head to toe with clothing at all times, and…Read More
A big reason many of us are so sick is the purity of our food.
That is, most foods we eat these days are too pure.
A diet of sea salt or rock salt has many trace elements, but purified salt (pure Sodium Chloride) may contribute to high blood pressure and kidney failure.
Fats and sugars are also…Read More
As human health worsens in all directions, our answer is to spend billions of dollars on cures for cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, autism and ADHD, the last two of which are now epidemics in the young.
Modern drug treatment is a (very) expensive sham. Our aim should be prevention of illness…Read More
Robert Gosstray discusses the benefits of using cannabis rather than expensive drugs produced by pharmaceutical companies in the treatment of cancer.Read More
We are genetically programmed to be of certain shape.
Big, small, large bones, small bones, fat, chunky, lumpy, obese, skinny, slender or skeletal and from birth it depends on how much junk food and sugary drinks it takes to get an individual fat.
The fattest people are now in America, followed closely by Australia (as…Read More
Health-related advertising by sports stars, all with an unquenchable thirst for more money and an unquenchable lack of knowledge about the products, is at a peak.
This is what washed-up cricketers, swimmers and footballers advertise on TV, radio and in newspapers:
Super krill oil, red krill oil, osteo krill oil, wild krill…Read More
Advertising of harmful substances has reached a peak
I have tackled this problem before, but the continuing promotion of grog, cigarettes, good dope, bad dope, gambling, medicines fake and real, and gigantic, sterilised sporting events played by rich robots have reached a peak.
Advertising has reached a screaming crescendo. Newspapers, TV, radio, and every sporting…Read More
All cells have finite life spans—they grow, live and dieRead More
I am uneasy about the way our stress-ridden society now depends on a ‘magic fix’ for everything, which is catered for by a conservative and orthodox medical system.
Increasingly over the years, I have swung around to an holistic, instinctive approach for treating human ailments, and a preference for preventative medicine, rather than therapeutic.
As the avalanche of…Read More
I am appalled by the direction in which modern medicine is heading.
I’ve been retired from pharmacy for almost two years now and I still read up on the latest horrors.
The Western world is suffering epidemics of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancers, depression and arthritis.
Our children are increasingly unhealthy and many…Read More
Menopause has somehow come to be seen by doctors and their female patients as a “disorder”. Menopause, however, is a normal life condition.Read More
Off-label drug prescribing is now all the rage.
A recent report stated that Seroquel (Quetiapine) is now being used for sedation, depression and anxiety disorders.
It was originally used as a psychotic agent, along with Zyprexa and Risperdal, and was used mainly for poor old ladies (but not men) locked up in nursing…Read More
