Examples Of How Bad Our 'health' Care System Has Become

116 posts in this topic

When you say "Our diet" - I'm assuming you mean "Americas diet"?

Yes, but but other cultures have diets that are nearly as bad or becoming as bad. In many cases, American corporations and culture can be blamed, such as the spread of coca cola and fast food chains around the world.

Other countries may be catching up - but America still has the worst diet and most obese population in the world (sadly). In Canada for example Mcdonald's and other American fatty food chains exist but they're truly not popular - The Mcdonald's Drive- thru is an utter ghost town where I live as Canadians much perfer Tim Horton's coffee to Big Mac's and fries. Just a different mentality.


Morning skin care routine:

- Cetaphil gentle cleanser

- Panoxyl B.P

- Cetaphil daily moisturizer (applied generously)

Night time skin care routine:

- Cetaphil gentle cleanser

- Panoxyl B.P

- Cetaphil daily moisturizer (applied generously)

Yeah, right. i wonder how that McDonald's stays in business, then. And Tim Hortons serves fresh fruit and veggies, does it?

tell me the name of that popular healthy Canadian dish that consists of a massive pile of French fries smothered in cheese and gravy? I can't remember.

Other than BGH being banned in Canada, there is little difference in the food production, diet habits and health between Canada and the US. You eat the same crap, most animals are factory farmed, diabetes is just as rampant even in children, teens are obese, and so on.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic.

I'm guessing you've never once stepped foot in Canada? the differences are astounding in terms of lifestyle. We have different portion sizes, considerably less fastfood restaurants and a staggering lack of obese people. Not to mention a higher taxation on junkfood which acts as a deterent to bad eating (a box of twinkies can cost as much as $12.99!).

.. and nobody eats "Poutine" unless you're from Quebec (poutine isn't even served in my province except at festivals and such).

Wrong As usual. do you ever know what you are talking about? You do a lot of guessing.

I have been to Canada. And your newspapers report differently about the health and diet of Canadians. Quick google searches on Canadian diet, diabetes in Canada, obesity in Canada etc, You'll find headlines like 'Canadian diet recipe for disaster'. And Canadian diet looks like a dogs breakfast' which begins with this lead sentence: ' The Canadian government has a food disorder, and it's helping to fuel the country's obesity epidemic.

I think ForeverBold just likes to come to the holistic board and be contrary to every topic they come across. At least that's just what i've noticed. I see they are banned now....why am I not surprised?

I'd already posted this in the epigenetics forum, but it occurs to me that it should be part of this discussion as well.

The gist of the article, about Angelina Jolie's mastectomy, is that doctors of all sorts are still operating on faulty pre-genomic mapping beliefs. Something you need to keep in mind f you or a family member is diagnosed with a serious illness.

(kind of like how your derm is operating on what was in their non-updated textbooks they used back in med school when telling you diet has nothing to do with acne, despite all the proof otherwise. some of which goes back many decades.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Interesting article about Angeline Jolie's reaction to having a mutated gene:

http://www.greenmedi...ea2cde-86852581

Excerpts: The first bit is what I've already posted here. It turns out our bodies do not have nearly enough genes to account for all the things happening to us.

Despite the commonplace refusal of so-called 'evidence-based medicine' to acknowledge the actual evidence of genetics, we moved into a Post-Genomic era over a decade ago following the completion of first draft of the entire human genome in 2000. At that moment, the central dogma of molecular biology – that our DNA controls protein expression, and therefore disease risk – was disproved. Our genome was found to contain roughly 20,000 genetic instructions – not even enough to account for the 100,000 proteins in the human body!

As a result, we must now accept that factors beyond the control of the gene, known as epigenetic factors, and largely determined by a combination of nutrition, psychospiritual states that feed back into our physiology, lifestyle factors, and environmental exposures, constitute as high as 95% of what determines any disease risk. In fact, even the psychological trauma associated with being diagnosed with cancer can drive malignancy via adrenaline-mediated multi-drug resistance, and according to a recent NEJM study, lead up to a 26-fold increased risk of heart-related deaths in the seven days following diagnosis.[ii]

Given this fact, Jolie's decision to have a bilateral mastectomy in order to excise from her body the breast tissue that contains BRCA1/BRCA2 genes which are known to interfere with the repair of radiation-induced DNA damage, rather than focusing on reducing or eliminating all future radiation exposure from her breasts, or incorporating hundreds of nutritional components experimentally confirmed to protect against radiation and associated genotoxic insults to the breast, reflects a iron clad faith in the inevitability of gene-driven cancer vis-à-vis a fundamentally powerless subject, versus trust in the body's ability to prevent and heal all disease, assuming it has the right conditions.

And then it goes on to talk about the common overdiagnosis and overtreatment of breast cancer.

Another common misconception is that you either have, or don't have the "BRACA genes," as if they were monolithic entities, ascertained with the black and white certainty of a pregnancy test. It is a little known fact that thousands of "mutations" in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes have already been identified and ..

These mutations are technically known as gene polymorphisms which are naturally occurring variations of a gene present in more than 1% of the populations. It will come to many as a surprise to learn that some of these so-called "mutations" actually REDUCE the risk of breast cancer.

Common infections for which you will recover better without the antibiotics

So, I have ABC this Morning on and they just had a doctor talking about recent reports on various conditions for which antibiotics are commonly prescribed but studies have shown you are better off taking nothing. And not just because of what you are doing to your digestive tract or creating superbugs, etc. but because you'll recover better without them.

Urinary tract infections, sinus infections and children's inner ear infections were named. And they mentioned that sinus infections are most often viral.

Which is annoying because the last, and only time I can think since my mid twenties, I took antibiotics was for a urinary tract infection they claimed I had even though I had no symptoms. And it was a broad spectrum antibiotic. And a powerful one, I believe.

Well, I can't read the nature article as I'm not a subscriber. I guess it's current and I could try stopping by a bookstore to read. But maybe the research isn't that good. Like maybe they only tested some common probiotics such as those in yogurt and found they didn't restore your flora. And maybe there are others that can. Like this new one I just discovered that can even survive baking and other food processing. Bacillus coagulans

Big food is looking to add it to everything as their next gimmick. Or one of their next gimmicks. There's no telling what other stupidity they have up their sleeves to sucker Americans to buy. Has any one seen all the varieties of Oreos there are these days? Someone brings them to the wildlife center where I volunteer. I'm hard pressed to decide which is the stupidest.

AMA declares Obesity a disease -- By popular vote.

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/no-evidence-ama-votes-obesity-disease?utm_source=GreenMedInfo+Weekly&utm_campaign=01c6fbc1fe-Greenmedinfo&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_62bb7ef31e-01c6fbc1fe-86852581

Modern medicine prides itself on being evidence based. That, at least, is their claim. However, when it comes right down to it, the reality is entirely different. This is obvious in the American Medical Association's (AMA's) decision on Tuesday that obesity is now a disease. It makes no difference if an obese person is perfectly healthy. As far as they're concerned, that person suffers from a disease.

How did they come to that decision? They voted on it![1] Their own Council on Science and Public Health reported that it's difficult to even define obesity and, therefore, makes no sense to call it a disease.[2] Nonetheless, the AMA's House of Delegates, which determines their policies, voted to define obesity as a disease.

So, even though they can't even define obesity, it's now officially a disease.

Look! Soon you'll be able to take a pill to solve your pill addiction problem: FDA Approves New Big Pharma Pill Solution for Prescription Drug Addiction Only large pharmaceutical companies with no interest other than fattening their pockets would propose treating prescription drug addiction with another prescription drug. And now Swedish drugmaker Orexo AB has the green light from the FDA to begin selling their Big Pharma pill solution in the U.S. to combat opioid addition. According to Reuters, the drug Zubsolv is designed to treat addiction to prescription opioids like codeine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, fentanyl and methadone (which is ironically the prescription solution for heroin addiction).

Following Government Sugar Guidelines Increases Heart Risk In Just Two Weeks

https://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/following-government-sugar-guidelines-increases-heart-risk-just-two-weeks?utm_source=www.GreenMedInfo.com&utm_campaign=6f12ea7373-Greenmedinfo&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_193c8492fb-6f12ea7373-86969685


The American Heart Association recommends that you consume only five percent of your calories as added sugar. The most recent AHA sugar guidelines recommend that Americans limit their sugar intake to between 100 and 150 calories per day.

That equates to a maximum of 6 to 9 teaspoons daily, at 16 calories per teaspoon. And that adds up to less than 15% of your calories every day.

On the other hand, the federal government's Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010 are much more generous when it comes to sugar. The government guidelines suggest an upper limit of 25% of daily calories consumed as added sugar.

25%!! One fourth of your calories. I'm just glad the American Heart Association has begun to recognize that sugar is a culprit in heart disease.

Just another reason why we need to quit trying to kill every microbe we come in contact with

Article about bacteriophages - viri that live in your mucus. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/08/26/mucus-phages.aspx?e_cid=20130826Z1_DNL_art_1&utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20130826Z1 Used in other countries to combat disease.

Also, several microbes that are supposed to be on your skin play important roles in skin function. Killing them is hurting your skin. in fact, the p.acnes bacteria everyone wants to destroy protects you from MRSA infection. And other microbes are vital for ceramide production.

Well, yes, but I don't think that occurs anymore. Another myth about vaccines is giving them credit for the reduction in many diseases when really it was improved hygiene. And now they claim people not getting vaccinated s causing a resurgence in many diseases that had Been 'eradicated' when really it's that everyone is so prone to illness because they don't consume nutrients, don't sleep and are sedentary, live in artificial light and take antibiotics at the lightest sign of an ailment. And are the children and grandchildren of people who did the same.

Well, yes, but I don't think that occurs anymore. Another myth about vaccines is giving them credit for the reduction in many diseases when really it was improved hygiene. And now they claim people not getting vaccinated s causing a resurgence in many diseases that had Ben 'eradicated' when really it's that everyone is so prone to illness because they don't consume nutrients, don't slep and are sedentary, live in artificial light and take antibiotics at the lightest sign of an ailment. And are the children and grandchildren of people who did the same.

Also, I don't know about the quality of all the articles on that site, but this one about how sugars damage arteries an are the true cause of heart disease is very good. Really good description of what happens. http://healthfreedoms.org/2013/08/03/world-renowned-heart-surgeon-speaks-out-on-what-really-causes-heart-disease/comment-page-1/#comment-1126687. Including many details usually left out of most explanations. Such as how no matter how good your glucose metabolism s, if you consume sugar when your cells are full, they won't take in any more. And it will remain in your blood stream while your pancreas keeps putting out more insulin. And both of those cause damage and start you on the path to diabeties and heart disease. This is how it happens.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

Your right on the money , plumbers have saved more lives than any orthodox doc , nutritious food , un polluted clean drinking water , and in the third world proper sanitation those are the real culprits of illness. Over use of antibiotics or as I call them anti-life biotics sadly antibiotics destroy everything and most of our immune system is in the gut this can lead to things like ibs and crohns disease . It never ceases to amaze me how dumb people really are when it comes to health.

People don't exercise , get little sleep and not enough sun light or D3 , simple things really that can make a huge difference in a persons health. And of course the BIG one over use of prescription drugs . I haven't taken a prescription drug in over 20 years really I don't need side effects in my life.

Drugs do not cure disease anymore than bullets cure war. Beneath modern medicine's showy display of diagnostic contraptions, heroic "life-saving" procedures, and an armory of exotic drugs of strange origin and power, it is always the body's ability to heal itself – beneath the pomp and circumstance – that is truly responsible for medicine's apparent successes. Too often, in spite of what medicine does to "treat" or "save" the body, it is the body which against invasive chemical and surgical medical interventions, silently treats and saves itself.

From these Articles about the myths perpetuated by our sick care system about Breast Cancer as it's breast cancer awareness month.

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/mammograms-linked-epidemic-misdiagnosed-cancers

Not only do they insist on focusing on the wrong solutions, I have the misfortune of living where all these silly walks take place, blocking my easy access to freeways turning 15 minute drives to thirty.

What people need to be aware of is that the best disease prevention and treatment is a healthy lifestyle involving nutrient rich food, daily low level activity, sunlight, natural as possible circadian cycle and managing chronic stress.

Here's another good quote:

Billions of dollars are raised and funneled towards drug research, when the lowly turmeric plant, the humble cabbage and the unassuming bowl of miso soup may offer far more promise in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer than all the toximolecular drugs on the market put together.

H-h-ho my gosh yes this couldn't be more true. I could go on a thirty page rant about how much i hate these breast cancer awareness walks/months/fundraisers, etc. Hell pepsi, (that's right, pepsi) has even patched the pink ribbon on their bottles. I'm waiting for Monsanto to post one on their website

80%-20% Alkaline forming vs Acid forming Diet

`Organic~
I don't consume:
*Dairy
*Whole grains
*Refined sugars
*Table salt
*Vegetable oils
*Processed/Fast foods
*Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs)
As well as the pesticides/herbicides that come with them

My philosophy: Less externally, more internally

Even taking long hot showers in chemically treated tap water is too harsh for acne prone skin

(And that's without a face wash)

This site is absolutely loaded with info on curing acne internally
