Why this pharmacist is as mad as hell and why you should be too

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…

A pharmacist’s last apology to humanity

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.

The great Tamiflu hoax

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…

Cholesterol is not your enemy

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…

Why drugs are not the answer to treating mental illness

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…

A holistic health system is the way forward

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…

Great healers are born healers

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…
