Death by Regulation with Dr. Mary Ruwart (#98)

2019-06-28T14:41:05-06:00

            Most Americans think that FDA regulations protect them from harm. Sadly, this is rarely, if ever the case. In this episode Dr. Mary Ruwart explains that more FDA regulation has actually caused more expensive drugs and an increase in premature deaths.

Dr. Ruwart shares exactly how the 1962 Amendments to the Food & Drug Act, which were supposed to protect us from harm, have done the opposite. You'll learn how the [...]

Losing The CARE In Healthcare & How Medicine Lost Its Way (Especially Regarding Natural Answers for Diseases)

2019-02-04T11:17:25-06:00

A post by John Mandrola, M.D. came up on my social media that said: “I’m concerned about the practice of Medicine. “Productivity” is slowly but surely extracting care from healthcare. It’s bad. Really bad.” He wrote an article in Medscape, the largest online medical journal that goes to approximately 5 million healthcare provides worldwide. It’s such a painful eye opener that it’s worse than having a huge infection in both eyes. But we all better open our eyes soon. Care is being taken out of healthcare.

And keep this in mind: one out of ten Americans is taking long term antidepressants! Antidepressants, as a stunning study from McMaster University emphasizes, do not work as effectively as medicine had hoped. Plus, they are much more dangerous than ever realized. "The common wisdom is that antidepressants are [...]
