Proponents of mainstream medicine may claim that their products and services are based on "real" science, but if that were true, we wouldn't be seeing so many natural medicines and supplements being banned by the FDA -- while Big Pharma sells synthetic versions of the same products for massive profits. Indeed, if modern medicine was actually rooted in the science of healing, the pharmaceutical industry as we know it today would cease to exist.
As Sayer Ji, founder of Green Med Info, writes, the art of traditional medicine has been lost to a corporate, profit-focused industry bent on creating and keeping "customers," rather than actual healing. Ji notes that there are an estimated 786,000 iatrogenic, or medically caused, deaths each year in the United States alone. And that's not counting all the medically caused deaths that go unreported or are erroneously attributed to other factors.
And yet, the pharma industry has established nearly complete control over the medical community. Doctors are now being pushed to prescribe statin drugs for "heart health" instead of a healthy diet and exercise. And then, patients need more prescriptions to cope with the side effects.
As Dr. Robert Scott Bell contends,”Whatever you’ve got going on, modern medicine has it beat.” He goes on to state, “I believe Sayer is right here, modern medicine is a form of human sacrifice.” See Bell’s full video below:
Ji contends further that many diseases are the result of nutrient deficiencies or chemical poisonings, that are then "repackaged" and given fancy new names. The pharma industry then creates and sells drugs to "fix" these newly branded "diseases," at a substantial markup.
Some chemotherapy drugs cost up to 4,000 times more than gold by weight. Ji explains further that only the pharma industry is able to manipulate the value of their products to such an extreme degree. Ji writes:
"The "medicines" themselves are often devoid of intrinsic value, being nothing more than rebranded and re-purposed chemicals, intended (though all too often failing) to be administered in sub-lethal concentrations. Indeed, many of these chemicals are too toxic to be legally released into the environment, and should never be administered intentionally to a human who is already sick. You need look no farther than a typical drug package insert to find proof that the side effects of most drugs far outnumber their purported beneficial effects.
The problem of modern medicine does not end with the purveying of toxins as medicines. To make matters worse, our governing bodies -- such as the FDA and the DEA -- serve pharmaceutical industry interests by essentially outlawing natural medicines, while allowing Big Pharma to patent synthetic versions to sell for massive profits.
Look no further than the sham of cannabis prohibition for proof: The DEA has remained vigilant in their stance that cannabis has no medical benefits and is a threat to public health, labeling it as a Schedule I drug. Meanwhile, the FDA has approved the synthetic THC drug known as Marinol. Another synthetic product modeled after cannabis compounds known as Epidiolex, which features synthetic CBD, was given the "green light" from the FDA to be fast-tracked for approval.
The DEA bans the whole plant, while Big Pharma picks it apart and patents synthetics for profits -- all with FDA approval.
As Ji contends:
Within our present dominant medical system, healing has not simply been forgotten but intentionally exorcized as it represents the antithesis of perpetual profitability which requires the incurability of the human body. Were the truth be told, and the body's self-regenerative capabilities acknowledged, the entire superstructure of drug-based medicine and hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue it generates annually, would crumble overnight.
Indeed, the pharma industry depends on slandering natural medicine and eschewing good science. You can learn more about natural healing at AlternativeMedicine.news.
