The History of Mainstream Medicine: Why I Left The System
Do You See What I see? The Current State of Today’s Medicine:
By now, it’s hard to deny that the medical field is leaning towards more organic and holistic variations in its treatment protocols to appease demand. The people are asking for more natural answers and less pharmaceutical drugs. This is promise to me, a physician who trained in this very sick system. Besides working 30+ hour shifts, living on processed junk fed to us as snacks in the hospital, and being ridiculed by unhappy attending doctors, we were taught the answer to every ailment is a drug. We paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for half truths. For example, rather than teach us about foods or herbs that contain antioxidants, we were taught multivitamins were the answer.
Every “correct” answer on our exams was something alluding to a pharmaceutical. The FDA doesn’t even regulate minerals, herbs and vitamins. Healthcare is a business that profits more from patented medicines peddled to the public rather than the original plant, vegetable, or animal source that earth provided them in. It’s very difficult to have faith in a system that’s involved with companies who hike Epi pen prices up in the hundreds to accentuate their own salary or dumping toxic waste into rivers that is considered hazardous waste. (These are just two examples of sins committed by Merck and Mylan pharma).
And don’t get me wrong. The drugs often work-and work quickly-but the consequences are often not worth the remedy. The body is screaming out in pain and rather than get to the root cause of the issue, we put a band aid on a gaping wound. The issue is still present, it has now just been silenced. For cholesterol, for example, we don’t have a Lipitor or Crestor deficiency, we have a diet and nutrient problem. Genetics is only responsible for 15-25% of chronic diseases! There is no profit in health. There is no profit in death. There is, however, profit in chronic illness. Keep in mind that the pharmaceutical business is now the second highest ranking manufacturing company behind the guns/weapons industry. There’s a reason for that.
Western medicine doctors are trained exquisitely on the body and it’s physiologic processes. They are so brilliantly educated, but often the whole is lost in all the scientific details. Many of us were and are still so blinded by the system that profits from teaching us to do their bidding. Western medicine does have its place, but usually this is required for people who are so chronically ill that their condition is terminal, or any physical injury requiring surgery.
Let me explain the history of medicine and this little known information may sway your opinion of the integrity of the current system in place.
Beginning in the 1900s, the Rockefeller family, heavily funding the petrochemical companies like Standard Oil, set their sights on the billions that could be made on the medical establishments and hospitals. Rockefeller wanted in on this lucrative medical market so he teamed up with a propagandist to visit each medical school in the country at that time. This man’s name was Abraham Flexner. In fact, Abraham Flexner Way is the name of the street where are the hospitals are located in Louisville, Kentucky, where I trained.
Flexner’s job was to generate the famous Flexner Report in 1910. It had to be a brilliant work of propaganda because the ultimate goal was to quiet all competition, which at the time, included many more allopathic and holistic practices.
Per Flexner: “…The curse of medical education is the excessive number of schools. The situation can improve only as weaker and superfluous schools are extinguished.” (Abraham Flexner 1910).
Together with Rockefeller, they created the International Education Board who helped to “reeducate” schools and hospitals worldwide. The Rockefeller family sponsored research and donated sums to universities and medical schools which had drug based research and continued to teach it in their curriculums. They further extended this policy to foreign universities and medical schools where research was drug based through their “International Education Board”. Many schools were closed down as didn’t fit their agenda, likely taking natural curriculum down with them. This system allowed dismissal of research that was not based on their chosen pharmaceutical drugs. The pharmaceutical companies are the ones funding the studies in the major medical journals that are then passed out to doctors in training. This conflict of interest alone caused many holistic practices to fall by the wayside due to lack of funding.
Public outcry due to Rockefeller’s hidden hand, successfully influenced Congress to declare the American Medical Association (AMA) as the only body allowed to grant medical licenses in the United States.
In 1939 a “Drug Trust” alliance was formed by the Rockefellers and the German chemical company I.G. Farben, better known today as Bayer, BASF, AGFA, and Sanofi. The Rockefeller family, through Chase Bank and the Standard Oil Company, together with J P Morgan through the Morgan Bank, were major financial supporters of Nazi Germany’s Third Reich. In fact Standard Oil was the largest shareholder in IG Farben and IG Farben was, next to the Rockefeller family, the largest shareholder in Standard Oil. IG Farben was the single largest donor to Adolph Hitler’s election campaign in Germany. PS. Bayer also wrote my Harrison’s Internal Medicine board review book, complete with a plug for their drug, Ciprofloxacin stamped on the inside of the front page.
Btw, the Rockefellers & JP Morgan Chase own half the pharmaceutical companies in the world. It is the largest drug manufacturing pair in the world. In fact, the same board of directors and shareholders of Pfizer pharmaceuticals, are the same board members for Exxon Mobil (a direct descendant of standard oil owned by JP Morgan.). The board director over at Merck pharma also sit on JP Morgan Chase’s board and in the past, simultaneously were board members at the New York Stock Exchange. Moreover, today’s pharmaceuticals are made using Morgan’s petrochemicals. It is a big intertwined mess of conflicts of interest, greed and blurred ethical lines.
The Rockefeller Foundation then strategically placed it’s own chosen appointees in federal health positions and then started it’s campaign to “reeducate” the public. By the way, Rockefeller also purchased encyclopedia brittanica and the Rockefeller syndicate owned the encyclopedias. Then went door to door and sold it to you! Their think tank also started JAMA, which took millions each year in advertising fees from tobacco and pharmaceutical companies in the 20th century. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics just broke ties with Monsanto in 2015 after being asked to explain by online bloggers.
“The medical monopoly or medical trust, euphemistically called the American Medical Association, is not merely the meanest monopoly ever organized, but the most arrogant, dangerous and despotic organisation which ever managed a free people in this or any other age. Any and all methods of healing the sick by means of safe, simple and natural remedies are sure to be assailed and denounced by the arrogant leaders of the AMA doctors’ trust as fakes, frauds and humbugs.
Every practitioner of the healing art who does not ally himself with the medical trust is denounced as a ‘dangerous quack’ and impostor by the predatory trust doctors. Every sanitarian who attempts to restore the sick to a state of health by natural means without resort to the knife or poisonous drugs, disease imparting serums, deadly toxins or vaccines, is at once pounced upon by these medical tyrants and fanatics, bitterly denounced, vilified and persecuted to the fullest extent.”-JW Hodge, MD-Niagara Falls
Joseph Lisa, in his book, The Assault on Medical Freedom, he writes of working his way into the interior of the AMA documentation. He speaks of evidence of organized propaganda used to discredit alternative sources in lieu of profit. The AMA was actually found guilty of conspiracy against the chiropractic industry in the 1970s. In 1976 specifically, five chiropractors filed an anti-trust suite against the AMA and several other heath care agencies and societies in Federal District Court (known as the Wilkes Case).
Funded by the established , a single medical monopoly was set into play using the insurance industry, the U.S. Dept of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, the IRS, the USPS and other federal agencies. The Carnegie Foundation, using Abraham Flexner, solidified the medical monopoly and re education of the laypeople in greed’s own best interest. Now we have a system based on sick diagnoses and payment once sickness has set in. There is no preventative care or education for the masses on healing.
Today, doctors are still regulated. With the advent of computerized health records, we are required to click boxes to meet core measures, without having to critically think or brainstorm. We are spied on and the hospitals are threatened with less funding or “probation” if they don’t meet guidelines which include prescribing pharmaceutical drugs.
I got into trouble multiple times before leaving the system. I was often set down at Kaiser Permanente and told that I couldn’t tell patients they might have parasites if there IgE levels were high. I couldn’t complain about the processed sick food in the cafeteria. I wasn’t allowed to complain in the charts about patients being on an acid reducer for 6 years when the recommended timeframe was 6 weeks. And why not? I was a liability to the suits who work behind the scenes in a corrupted system that is making profit from sickness.
If you are an ill patient, please seek out eastern, western and holistic practices. Seek out doctors who don’t react when when don’t follow the system’s guidelines. Look for an open minded physician without a chip on his or her shoulder. Begin to read on your own about holistic health. Learn about healthy eating habits and ways to detox your body.
