A "nightmare" bacteria that is resistant to powerful antibiotics and kills half of those it infects has surfaced in nearly 200 U.S. hospitals and nursing homes, federal health officials reported Tuesday.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 4 percent of U.S. hospitals and 18 percent of nursing homes had treated at least one patient with the bacteria, called Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), within the first six months of 2012.
What is happening already in Greece is like the canary in the coal mine. Greeks are in a panic as drug firms slash medicine supplies by 90% on bad debts.
This tragedy is coming to the rest of the world as the world economy contracts and as austerity bites harder, like it will start now in the USA.
Pharmaceutical multinationals have halted shipments to the country because of the economic crisis. Even the Red Cross slashed its supply of donor blood to Greece because it had not paid its bills on time. Pharmacies in Greece describe chaotic scenes as clients desperately search from shop to shop for much-needed drugs. Greece’s Pharmaceutical Association said "around 300 drugs are in very short supply," adding that "It’s a disgrace.
The companies are ensuring that they come in dribs and drabs to avoid prosecution. Everyone is really frightened." Lines form early and ‘get very aggressive’ one pharmacy exclaimed, "We have reached a tragic point."
Institutionalized Medical Ignorance
It does seem like many doctors and most medical organizations enjoy being stupid. And the NY Times enjoys broadcasting that stupidity for everyone to see. My life changed dramatically when I published Transdermal Magnesium Therapy six years ago putting me on the medical map of the world.
In that book I show, through presenting a massive amount of research, that magnesium-rich foods and magnesium chloride (including concentrated seawater full of minerals) was the best medicine for heart disease and stroke and a host of other conditions. I did not make up the research but the doctors in this essay seem to pretend that decades of research do not exist.
Everyone who has read my essays knows that I do not make wild statements that are not based on fact. The information is there to sustain my conclusions. It is hard to understand why we need more studies. It seems like it is just an excuse to buy doctors and medical organizations more time to harm more people with their ignorance.
Everyone has to see this video, which show how bad life can be for a child and how inept orthodox medicine is when dealing with human pain and suffering. When all else fails medical marijuana rides in to the rescue and I will hold Obama and many others responsible for the terrible suffering that comes with denying people and children access to cannabinoid medicine. I would not want to be these people when they reach heaven’s gates.
Fortunately there are brave companies like Dixie Botanicals doing an end-run around the government, the FDA and the CDC which are the most uncaring organizations on earth. Dixie is providing CBD, a legal form of medical marijuana without the THC. I have not had the time to write much about their products but to all my readers please read my lips when I tell you to buy a few jars of their topical formula.
I have been using this balm on my children, my wife and myself for any problem on the skin including a fungus on the back of my youngest son’s head and for fungus in-between my toes and it works like a charm. Truthfully I would never want to be without it!
Medical Resilience and Independence
What is Resilience? A dictionary definition is “an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change.” In terms of individual psychology, resilience can be characterized as being able to roll with the punches, maintaining a positive attitude through difficult times, and focusing on developing successful responses to misfortunes and challenges.
The medically resilient household will have greater happiness and a greater sense of wellbeing than households that are totally dependent on a failing Nazi-like medical system dependent on the pharmaceutical empire that is profit, not human care driven. The difference between fragility in front of a nightmarish medical paradigm and resilience is that by practicing Natural Allopathic Medicine much security and happiness will be available should a Greece like hit happen in our own home country.
Everyone today is exposed to multiple stresses and toxins but not everyone gets cancer and other terrible diseases. Why? The answer is seen in each person’s inner resilience. The easiest way to increase resilience is to reduce fragility and vulnerability and one can do that with nutritional medicines and other natural therapies. Pharmaceutical medicine is brilliantly designed to destroy peoples’ resilience, and that is why I coined the term pharmaceutical terrorism.
Learning Humility through Listening
I was taught decades ago that to know what you don’t know will arrive one at wisdom pretty quickly. It is interesting to think on what one does not know and that will usually bring one into a state of humility which is wisdom found. Listening is the golden path of learning and humility and the arrogant don’t want to listen to anything at all except to what they already know, not really caring whether one is right or wrong.
What is astonishing to me is how much I have learned in the past year, my 60th down here on earth. The hardest part of learning so much so fast is that you can see how so recently in the past one has been living, thinking and working in relative ignorance.
These past days I have attended to two cancer patients and I am aghast at the way they are treated and the ignorance that surrounds cancer care. Even families and friends get in on the act to keep patients in a prison of the massive ignorance that is an enforced part of society and medical care. It just seems to be built into the system, built into our civilization and cancer care mirrors this.
To listen is to suffer because we do not want to listen to anything that might require a change. To listen is to change. We cannot change without listening. Listening implies a change. We need to change just to listen.
