A SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH MEDICINE, ESPECIALLY MEDICATIONS!!!

One of the biggest dangers in medicine is the shoddy way that clinical trials are done and the fact that almost all positive results are published and most negative results are censored or not published at all.

The result is that many new drugs are not only often useless but plagued with many undesirable side effects. All that you have to do is listen to the dangerous side effects advertised on television commercials for new drugs which range all the way from harmful effects on blood balance and harmful effects organs such as the kidneys, liver, pancreas, etc. to possible consequences such as heart failure, cancer, and even death.

Criminal is the only way to describe the research by private drug companies and certification of drugs by the FDA or government. This ted.com video should send chills down your spine so try to view the link in it’s entirety.

The best advice is to stay away from modern pills if it is not a question of life or death because the side effects are often worse than the symptoms which you are trying to mask and not cure.

TRANSPARENCY IN MEDICINE IS VITAL TO REESTABLISH AND MAINTAIN PATIENT TRUST!!!

82212

Transparency or a truthful relationship of doctor and patient is essential to maintain trust in the doctor patient relationship.

Leana Wen on ted.com argues for an honest disclosure of potential conflicts of interest of doctors who are on the payroll list of powerful drug companies whose drugs they use and promote.

My personal opinion is that doctors are not perfect Gods who don’t make mistakes and there is good reason to ask doctors to disclose their mistakes to the public on the internet. This is so that their mistake rate is public knowledge and perhaps only after the same mistake is repeated more than three times should the doctor be under the potential for a valid medical malpractice suit.

There is currently too much fear in the doctor patient relationship on both sides because trust has severely eroded and it is time to reestablish it as much as possible with the truth and dealing head on with human or doctor fallibility.

OBAMACARE CAN BE FIXED BUT IT WILL TAKE MUCH TIME AND EFFORT TO DO IT LOGICALLY AND JUSTLY!!!!!!

obamacare

Obamacare is a perfect example of an illogical unjust law in its present form. True justice for all the citizens would be that the healthy should pay some money towards future health problems but at the same time should be rewarded by paying less if they are smart and remain healthy throughout most of their lives. Those with preexisting conditions and the unhealthy with many trips to the doctor’s office should be paying more into the healthcare system during their working years in anticipation of greater health care costs later in life. Those who are unemployed and destitute should be given free health care for emergency health situations and minimal care for other standard illnesses, especially the contagious ones.

This means that the government will have to have the medical records of all its citizens so that it can evaluate who are the healthy and sicker ones within the society and tax them accordingly during their lifetime. Government controlled health care which is just and has sliding rate medical taxes which reward the healthy and penalizes the unhealthy with higher premiums or taxes is a just system of health care and not the one size fits all citizens or egalitarian socialized medicine.

The computer software for a just sliding scale medical coverage is highly complex but it can be done given enough preparation time and enough reliable data inputted so that the software can make just logical decisions as to who pays and how much. Obamacare is a fixable program but it will take years to make it a just program of medical care for all.

BEING A MEDICAL DOCTOR HAS ITS DRAWBACKS

medical-malpractice-2

Doctors today are plagued by very high medical malpractice insurance rates, many patients who want instant cures and sometimes ask for medications or pills for every ailment, and Obamacare will put more limits on what a doctor will be able to charge patients. That doctors are over stressed and soon will be underpaid is going to be a fact of life in the near future and the only content doctors are going to be those playing the system and spending about 5 minutes per patient and giving substandard care.

Here is a link to some facts of life about being a doctor from cracked.com.

BEWARE OF TOXINS IN YOUR VITAMINS, SUPPLEMENTS, AND HEALTH FOODS

299299_10151260848927887_477506587_n

Mike Adams knows much about certified organic foods and reveals some of the potential hazards of buying from unscrupulous manufacturers of vitamins, supplements, and health foods. The message is fundamental, inform yourself about the product from unbiased sources if possible because most manufacturers are trying to cash in on the health conscious public and only care about the bottom line and not your health.

I include a link to the full article from infowars.com. I personally think infowars.com is a fear promoting politically extreme website but I visit it almost daily for about one minute looking for rare gems like this article. They also rarely print useful information on the true state of the economy. It is an anti-establishment website so they sometimes print the truth which those with political and economic power would rather not have you know about.

PREGNANCY THREE WEEKS AT A TIME

breech-pregnancy-1

3 WEEKS PREGNANT

A pregnancy test won’t confirm it yet but the fertilized egg or blastocyst attaches to the uterus lining and is the size of a pin. You probably won’t feel anything, though some women experience cramps and heavier vaginal discharge.

6 WEEKS PREGNANT

The heart has formed and the brain, lungs, arms, legs and nervous system are all beginning to form. In addition to morning sickness, you may feel weight gain and sense a darkened areola and breast soreness. Make sure you begin to eat as wide a variety of certified organic foods as you can because the baby needs good nutrition from the mother. You should also stop smoking, drinking alcohol, and eating many sweets which will greatly impact your baby negatively.

9 WEEKS PREGNANT

Your baby is the size of a grape and the ears, bones, fingers, toes, eyes, ears, lips and nose are all in the process of forming. Mom has about 50% more blood circulating in the body and the uterus is about the size of a grapefruit. The heart now has four chambers and you may feel sleepy with morning sickness.

12 WEEKS PREGNANT

You can probably see your baby in the first trimester with ultrasound and you can check your baby for risk of Down syndrome. Baby face looks more human and the kidneys may have started to secrete urine as the nerve cells multiply at a speedy rate. The baby may begin sucking and stimulating areas of the uterus may cause baby movement which you will not feel for several more weeks.

15 WEEKS PREGNANT

Ultra sound may detect twins at this point and the baby has fingerprints and a soft layer of hair covering the skin and the baby may be sucking its thumb. You may have your energy back and have better sleep. Trisomy 18 a genetic disorder of the brain or spinal cord which most babies don’t survive can be tested for.

18 WEEKS PREGNANT

 

The baby is about six inches long and has developed a sense of hearing. If you have lowered blood pressure you may feel dizzy when you stand up speedily.

21 WEEKS PREGNANT

The baby is producing his first poop and swollen ankles, hands and feet can be symptoms of preeclampsia, or dangerously high blood pressure. Some women successfully exercise during the entire pregnancy period almost up to birth and this is a healthy thing to be doing rather than remaining sedentary during most of the pregnancy. If you exercise during pregnancy chances are you won’t need a C section because your muscles will be in good condition to deliver a baby.

24 WEEKS PREGNANT

Baby is more than a foot long and the mother may start to feel some movement as the baby moves limbs. Lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are more defined but the iris lacks pigment. Mom’s hair is more lustrous and the nails may be growing at a more rapid speed. Boy’s testes are making their descent and girls have developed a uterus and ovaries. Pressure on the bladder may mean more frequent urination. It may be time to test for gestational diabetes which can cause breathing and other problems at birth.

27 WEEKS PREGNANT

Baby weighs about two pounds and the eyelids are working. If there is a premature birth there is approximately an 80% chance of survival.

30 WEEKS PREGNANT

Fetus may begin to mimic breathing and weighs about three pounds. Mom may be fighting off leg cramps, constipation, hemorrhoids, sleeplessness, mood swings, and bouts of depression.

33 WEEKS PREGNANT

Baby is about 16 inches long and mom may be having a little heartburn so the meals should be frequenter and smaller. Slight contractions may be happening but this is nothing to worry about.

36 WEEKS PREGNANT

Moms may get some relief from breathing problems as the baby drops into the pelvis but adds more pressure on the bladder. About 31 percent of births are C sections so talk to your doctor about not having one unless it is a severe emergency. Over 95% of births can be natural without complications if you are not given artificial epidural drugs which reduce pain and make C sections almost necessary.

39 WEEKS PREGNANT

The baby may be anywhere between about 6 and 9 pounds with baby fat to make survival outside the womb possible. The cervix may be dilating in preparation for birth. The skeleton bone has hardened but the skull bone has not hardened so that birth can occur relatively easily without a hard skull blocking exit from the vagina. The baby should be in head down or breech position ready for birth and your mucous plug may have ruptured. If your water breaks at any point during pregnancy you should go to the hospital immediately.

If you have had a successful first pregnancy without an epidural or a frequently unnecessary C section then strongly consider a home birth with the help of a midwife the second time around. You will save a boatload of money and your family can share in the birthing experience to see how babies are born naturally!!!!!!
