Are the big medical companies going to be the death of us all ?

With all the current fuss about pandemics, emerging diseases and Big Pharma practices I was quite excited to be present at a health congress recently, where I hoped some nagging little questions I had been asking myself could be answered by the impressive array of doctors, medical universtity deans and pharmaceutical company representatives who attended.

While I was there I confirmed a fair bit of information (and some very worrying conclusions), the most important being:

– The biodiversity of this planet is being reduced every day, with industry, logging, and petrochemicals in the environment destroying more and more species.

– Pathogens in previously highly biodiverse areas are being forced to move onto new hosts or “vector animals” at a faster and faster rate to ensure their own survival, because their traditional hosts are dying off.

– Through massive vaccination programs, our pharmaceutical industry is attempting to completely eradicate many of the diseases that have plagued humans for millenia. These vaccinations are allegedly effective against specific pathogens, with little or no effect on others, and in many cases reduce the human body’s resistance against other diseases.

– When a pathogen dies out, either from biodiversity destruction or eradication via vaccination, another one – often completely unknown – adapts to take it’s place within a very short time.

– Against these new diseases humans have almost no immunity, having never encountered them before.

– Most people’s immune systems are much weaker today than a few decades ago for many reasons: poor nutrient and vitamin supply from food due to processing methods and irradiation for “hygiene”, sedentary or otherwise unhealthy lifestyles, and in many parts of the world, malnutrition or hunger.

–  Even in advanced countries, it is harder and harder to get good quality vitamins and supplements, mostly because of intense daily lobbying efforts from the same food and medecine industry giants that want a monopoly on our health – here’s the latest attempt, by Senator John McCain of all people. Here more of the same in Canada… There is a permanent assault by Big Pharma on the health of every country that never stops, it seems. The vitamins that manage to get sold are usually restricted to tiny, useless doses, or failing that, are synthesised from ingredients that are very poorly assimilated by our bodies. Today it is fairly hard to rebuild a good immune system because of this. If you are told vitamins can be dangerous, laugh and read this. Out of the billions of doses taken, 10 people have died taking vitamins in the US… in 23 years !

So to sum up: in an environment that is already throwing more and more serious pathogens at us, our medical system is doing it’s best to eliminate the pathogens we have acquired defences against, while making no effort to strengthen our natural immunities that are the only protection we have against a multitude of emerging diseases – on the contrary: many of the chemical based medecines we use actually reduce the effectiveness of our own immune systems. This is tantamount to creating the perfect storm, where all it would take is one new virulent disease to wipe our globalised population of the face of this planet. Luckily for us there are always a few survivors even after the worse epidemics…

When I asked a few of the “experts” about this pretty obvious problem, none of them could give me a satisfactory explanation – in fact, it seems that several of these so-called “top notch researchers” had never given the matter any thought, and looked quite worried as they scuttled off to avoid answering…

So the next question is why ? I find it hard to believe that the entire pharmaceutical industry is willfuly plotting the death of the entire human race, with some modern-day Dr. Mabuse at the top pulling the strings of millions of “useful idiot” doctors worldwide in a carefuly orchestrated doomsday plan ! I also find it hard to believe that so many doctors worldwide are so dangerously stupid that the implications of our massively wasteful billion dollar disease eradication programs have passed them by completely…

Add to all this the new breeds of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” that not only defeat our drugs, but also are acquiring characteristics that allow them to defeat the most healthy people with ease, and we really have a problem.

If a doctor out there can give me a reasonable explanation of this bizarre methodology, I would love to hear it ! I’m not holding my breath, though…

When I compare our medical industry’s methods with other forms of medecine they seem to fare very badly these days except in surgical techniques – For example in Traditional Chinese medecine most of the treatments aim to boost all the natural systems in the body to their peak – from their point of view if a person is healthy and has a strong immune system, he has little to fear from any disease. Quite the opposite approach to the average western drug-dealing doctor strangely enough…

In my case, I haven’t touched a pharmaceutical drug for years and my last vaccination was when I was a baby, but despite travelling all over the world, including into pathogen-rich jungles full of mosquitoes and supposedly very unhealthy third-world countries I am healthier than most people I know. I’m also a smoker, and not impartial to a few beers…

My advice to anyone who wants to keep healthy as long as possible without paying too much attention to the current pandemic hysteria and it’s associated marketing schemes:

– Take organic vitamins, especially C & D3 when the flu is about. Don’t bother with non-organic vitamins – they are virtually useless and can do you harm.

– Take mineral supplements whenever you feel “under the weather” – especially in hot, sweaty environments.

– Drink lots of green tea

– Start practicing one of the many eastern healthy exercise programs. Meditation is a good start but if you have the time practicing Tai Chi a bit every day, or even better Qi Gong, will definitely improve  your health across the board. Either of these techniques will also strengthen your ligaments and joints, and keep your body youthful until a ripe old age if practiced regularly. I know 90 year olds who practice QI Gong 30 minutes a day and can put a 40 year old to shame when it comes to endurance, vitality and alertness. Failing that (it’s not always easy to find a good Qi Gong teacher), regular, long walks in a natural environment do wonders for the mind and body !

– Eat varied foods, and occasionally be excessive on food and drink…

– Once in a while, when you are feeling good about yourself, fast for a day. No food – only liquids and no stimulants or cigarettes !

Picture yourself young and strong, whatever your actual condition – Your aging will slow down.

Cheers, and good health ! May you survive when everyone else drops like flies…
