It seems more and more recently that celebrities are being struck down with various disease – I have a sneaky and sad suspicion that pharma and medicine is using this for their own good.
What better way to get the masses on board to buy their wares and believe the hype if idols are spruiking their lies in desperation? Like Magic Johnson who arguably has pushed more sales of ARVs (HIV toxic meds) than anyone else on the planet, celebrity is now being used to con more and more people who are living in fear of whatever disease they are being told they now have. Often, these celebrities aren’t even using the treatments they are advising the masses to take.
This week just one of the celebrities I witnessed on TV – complete with visible suffering – was Tim Ferguson. I have long been a fan of his comedic antics and vibrant energy, and to see him so frail – unnecessarily so, is as heartbreaking as it is frustrating.
Multiple Sclerosis is one disease that is shrouded in misinformation and lies. People are being left to die appallingly while hidden truths are dismissed by academics and experts without even a hint of ‘just maybe’. Just maybe these alternatives will help make a difference. After all, millions of cases around the world are improving without so much as a portion of suffering – and these cases are dismissed as anecdotal or placebo at best. In all honesty, any person who pretends to live by the Hippocratic oath and professes to first do no harm, would take ANY opportunity to cure their patient rather than robbing them of all hope.
My first foray into medicine began aged 15 and continued until I was 25 and it was fraught with questions that had no answers – not from the experts, anyway. Yet as young and naive as I was, I found answers almost every day. Any effort to suggest them was met with smirking and ignorance – eventually I walked away from my medical school plans simply because the industry was dirty and corrupt. I saw too many innocent children, mothers and fathers, grandparents and disabled die needlessly, while others once again thrived by making their own choices in health care.
Multiple Sclerosis is one of the most terrifying and feared illnesses known to man. Yet dig deeper and it mirrors many other illnesses and deficiencies that medicine refuses to acknowledge –
- Post viral syndromes (often identical symptom set to MS)
- Chronic fatigue syndrome (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronic_fatigue_syndrome)
- Lyme disease (http://www.aldf.com/Misinformation_about_Lyme_Disease.shtml)
- Mould related syndromes (http://www.ehaplabs.com/About_Multiple_Sclerosis.html)
- Aspartame poisoning (http://www.rense.com/general53/ms.htm)
- Food allergies (http://curezone.com/art/read.asp?ID=86&db=2&C0=233)
- Drug side effects and treatment side effects (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/02/25/ms-drug-continues-to-cause-disastrous-side-effects.aspx)
In doing what I do, half my time is spent pleading with people trying to get well – over the last few decades, medicine has managed to con the western world into thinking they somehow can’t survive without medical ‘help’ yet more people live and thrive without it globally than depend on it. Sadly, the amount of over-medication that goes on, coupled with the spin and investment alongside the media and stakeholders is too powerful to consider anything as simple as honesty.
In the first decade or so of my years in practice I would spend as much time pleading with prospective patients (that I often didn’t charge for). Eventually I stopped doing so, but I can’t say I don’t want to keep trying to contact people when I hear they have cancer or MS or CFS or whatever I know can be helped.
But I’d still love to have an hour with Tim Ferguson. Diet, gentle natural therapies, eradication of foreign matter in the body such as mould and fungus and toxins – nothing to lose, so much to gain. It’s so frustrating knowing the truth in a world where that one word really doesn’t matter any more.
