Something To Add: Mc Medical 'Info'



I just read a very disturbing 'article' that was shared on Facebook. It has to do with the 'Most Dangerous Prescription Drugs'.

I am compelled to add my expertise both as a physician and as a holistic energy healer to address this Disinformation effectively:

Number 15:  Just Because It Is Prescribed, Don't Trust It

Here's the linkhttp://precious786.likes.com/the-most-dangerous-prescription-drugs?pid=118591&utm_source=mylikes&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=ml&utm_term=26712190

Here's what Reiki Doc has to add:  The authors are telling you THIS: 'trust us--who have NOT gone to medical training for ten years--to inform YOU of what your doctor WON'T TELL YOU'. This is a substitution, asking you to take your trust in your doctor and give it to them, the writers of the post. What does your heart center say to you when you read this? Your mind is probably like, 'Cool! Secrets! I'm in!' but listen to your heart. The fact of the matter is most prescriptions are written on a 'standard of care' basis. Yes, there might be unscrupulous 'outliers', My advice to you: read Wikipedia, or Up To Date, not this article, for balanced information to help you decide on whether this drug is right for you. Do NOT read the drug inserts--they aren't helpful, and show every bad outcome. Do your research online, and ask your doctor too. Look at the page again. It is a vehicle to sell adds! Three-quarters of the page IS adds! And you need to click to fifteen different pages to read the whole article! This makes about four pages of information and roughly twelve of Advertising! I see this:

Does this author have your best interest at heart?



Number 14: Use Antibiotics In Moderation

Here's the link: http://likes.com/misc/the-most-dangerous-prescription-drugs?pid=118591&v=eyJjbGlja19pZCI6IDIyNzUwMTc2MDYsICJwb3N0X2lkIjogMjY3MTIxOTAsICJjIjogIm90aGVyX3N1c3BlY3QifQ&page=2

Here's what Reiki Doc has to add:  STOP! Time out! What is this???

  • The three most dangerous drugs are--levaquin, Vancocin, and Bactrim? Why? For creating multi drug resistance in bacteria? 
  • Levaquin is a fluoquinolone. It is big for pneumonia and urinary tract infections. It's a 'big gun' as far as pills go. Levquine and the family aren't to be used in children--it affects growth and development of the body.  http://www.medicinenet.com/levofloxacin/article.htm
  • Vancomycin is i.v. 'big gun' antibiotic used for surgical prophylaxis in heart surgery and other cases where the patient is penicillin-allergic. Vancomycin-resistant enterococcus and Vancomycin-resistant staph aureus are being seen and this makes the news. Vanco can cause 'red man syndrome', where histamine release makes the skin turn red as it is given. It also can cause nephrotoxicity. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vancomycin
  • Bactrim causes a reaction that makes sunburn worse. It also has sulfa in it, and some are allergic. It also might cause weakened bone marrow (myelosuppression) and liver toxicity. Here's wiki for more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bactrim
  • See how easy it is to find real information? It takes no more clicks and not much more reading than the original article about the "Most Dangerous Prescription Drugs'. 


Number 13:  Beta Blockers 'weaken the heart in its pumping over time' so 'keep your regimen short term'


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add: If you were healthy, would your doctor even be WRITING you for beta blockers? NO. Beta blockers are used to rate control atrial fibrillation, to support the heart and increase lifespan/quality of life in congestive heart failure, AND to control blood pressure. It is used for migraines, anxiety before public speaking, and essential tremor. Please know WHY you are on it, and then read this link--I didn't see anything about 'weakening of the heart' here--do you? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_blockers  How do you think your health will be if you go untreated with your medical condition out of 'fear of the long term heart weakening'. Always keep in mind the risk to benefit ratio--and go for the most benefit with the least risk to you. If you don't like the side effects, you can explore alternative medications with your doctor. This includes going RAW Vegan. It lowered a friend's triglycerides from the 1000's to the 100's in three weeks. (always be sure to test and recheck if a treatment, any treatment, is WORKING).



Number 12: Cold and Flu Over-The-Counter Medications


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add: One summer I worked for a major consumer products company. They made these things. Do you know what the research scientists on the projects called these products? Garbage Medicine. I kid you not! There was NO benefit from them, and this was decades ago, but people liked them so they kept selling them! I agree with the authors on this one. Pediatricians do not recommend any decongestant or over-the-counter like this for infants and toddlers for a reason. Why take them for you? Especially if you have high blood pressure, these medications will raise it. I wouldn't recommend 'colloidal silver' routinely--some have turned gray in the skin from its overuse.



Number 11:  Arthritis Medications Only Cover The Pain and Speed Up Joint Degeneration


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add:  Again, it is a question of risk to benefit. The risk is kidney toxicity (increased exponentially if tylenol is taken at same time as NSAIDS), GI bleeding and ulcer, and accelerated cartilage destruction. The benefit is pain relief and increased motility. Other things to try? Well, it depends on whether it is Rheumatoid arthritis or Osteo arthritis. One college classmate was bedridden until he learned he changed his diet--no 'nightshade family'--eggplant, tomato, potato--and he could walk and function with his juvenile arthritis again. Daily self-Reiki is going to help with the pain. And here is an affirmation from Louise Hay: I am Love. I now choose to love and approve of myself. I see others with Love. The more debilitating the illness, the more other options need to be explored; find 'what works for you' and stick to it.




Number 10:  Antipsychotic Drugs Have Long-Term Side Effects--Research them well


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add:  Again, I agree. My ex-husband was a Seroquel rep. We knew Zyprexa made people gain a lot of weight. Everyone in the business knew it made people get high cholesterol and diabetes. But it was a living. (This concept is called career-ship--an excellent lecture is here: http://youtu.be/L7pBpvFHO2g)

this is a researcher, a physicist, who understands the 'research game'

Again, it's a tough call--psychosis and possible harm to self or others, or serious side effects? Look things up on the Internet. Ask other patients. Ask doctors and nurses. Try it and see what works for you. As an aside, I shudder inwardly when I have a patient on Duloxetine (Cymbalta) for surgery--the blood pressure behaves erratically, and my standard medicines to correct blood pressure don't work 'right'. All of these inhibitors affect some of the 'fight or flight' biochemicals that affect blood pressure as well as the brain under anesthesia. I work hard on those patients to keep their blood pressure stable during the case.




Number 9:  Proscar Is Unsafe For Sexual Partners--to touch or have sex with


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add:  It is a known teratogen--induces mutation in human embryology--Here's Wiki on it: 

Teratogenicity

Finasteride is in the FDA pregnancy category X. This means that it is known to cause birth defects in a fetus. Women who are or who may become pregnant must not handle crushed or broken finasteride tablets, because the medication could be absorbed through the skin. Finasteride is known to cause birth defects in a developing male baby. Exposure to whole tablets should be avoided whenever possible, however exposure to whole tablets is not expected to be harmful as long as the tablets are not swallowed. It is not known whether finasteride passes into breast milk, and thus should not be taken by breastfeeding women. Finasteride may pass into the semen of men, but Merck states that a pregnant woman's contact with the semen of a man taking finasteride is not an issue for concern. Finasteride is known to affect blood donations, and potential donors are typically restricted for at least a month after their most recent dose.[35]

How many men with big prostates are going to be fathering children? This is like, men over Fifty! And even if it was a 'love at last starting the second family', the sperm is okay, the pill is okay, only if it is taken by the woman or the pill crushed would it cause harm. So don't freak out, okay? It's do-able. And just go and get a TURP (trans-urethral resection of the prostate). You'll pee better too, and won't need that medication. Here is the rest from Wiki on this drug to 'open a large prostate'; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finasteride



Number 8:  Long-term Use Of Diuretics Has Potentially Serious Side Effects


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add: If your doctor is prescribing you diuretics. your body has been in 'imbalance' and 'Dis-ease' for a very long time. This is a serious 'wake up call' to you. The things the article says are basically true, but 'slanted' to frighten you. This is unfair because you don't have many options. Research everything you can, including major lifestyle changes, and alternative treatments. Keep a check on your 'target organ function'--blood pressure, heart studies, kidney function, to make sure you don't waste what time you have left. Twenty years can pass by very fast, and you might stretch it to thirty, forty, or longer with 'what works for you'. Here is an affirmation, again from Louise Hay, for hypertension: I joyously release the past. I am at Peace.

Number 7:  Cholesterol Lowering Drugs


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add: I remember the lecture when the famous researcher taught us that cholesterol and lipids and plaque rupture led to heart attacks. He was creepy. And very arrogant. I was like, 'how does he know that this far-fetched fairy tale is the REAL reason behind it?' I was skeptical. Yes, we do know that aggressive lowering of cholesterol prevents restenosis of coronary artery stents. This is achieved with medication. However, we are also starting to learn that the low-fat diet which is promoted for Heart Health almost guarantees diabetes and kidney disease. Everything is connected. If you have serious requirement for health reasons to lower your cholesterol, don't just 'eat healthy'--go RAW vegan. Bill Clinton went Vegan. He hasn't been back to the hospital since...just saying....



Number 6:  Ritalin


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add:  This is way outside the scope of my practice. What I DO know is that if you study with it, you need to test with it too. Caffeine. Music. It has something to do with the way knowledge is stored. Here's the link to Wiki on the drug: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ritalin . And what I hear in my studies on Spirit online is that these souls are Higher Vibration, and don't need Ritalin. They 'remember' their origin, and how education was done there, and just aren't a good match for our 'dumbing down' system of control through education in society today.


Number 5:  Coumadin


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add: This post has gross medical errors. The newest drug on the market, Dabigatran, Pradaxa, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dabigatran, does not need the patient to 'keep coming back'. However, it is more expensive than coumadin alone, perhaps not more so than coumadin plus monitoring. (Here is a link to anticoagulation, in general--from the best medical reference site out there--Up To Date. It's subscription, but perhaps your library might 'connect' for the whole article for you. http://www.uptodate.com/contents/anticoagulation-with-direct-thrombin-inhibitors-and-factor-xa-inhibitors). Vitamin C has nothing to do with coagulation--it is Vitamin K--which is a typo but also dangerous because then the Coumadin can be reversed. It takes 10 mg intramuscular injection for three days to reverse overdose of coumadin. And fresh frozen plasma transfusions.)



Number 4:  Prozac


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add: For some people this might prevent them from committing suicide. For others, who are under MK Ultra programming, it might be something to keep them 'controlled' and/or and 'excuse' for then the MK Ultra 'handler' sends them off to do a 'terrorist act'. We don't know. I know for me when I was depressed and getting treatment, my intuition said, 'talk therapy only, no drugs'. I only speak for myself. I do not know and do not judge another's depression.


Number 3:  Prednisone


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add:  I, too, fought prednisone for years with my chronic sinus infections. They'd prescribe the pills, I wouldn't take them. In medical school I learned about adrenocortical suppression, and always refused the drug when it was prescribed. But the last few bad sinus infections I had, I took the prednisone shot, along with the antibiotic shot, and it saved me from surgery. Again, know there is a definite pattern of side effect from prednisone--http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prednisone
But for some people, like my niece and mom who have had kidney transplants, my father who had pulmonary fibrosis, the life-saving anti-inflammatory effect of the prednisone justifies the risks.


Number 2:  Methotrexate


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add:  Methotrexate is a very big gun. It frightens me. That being said, when nothing else works, what else is there to do? It is a chemotherapeutic drug, but my grandmother took it for her rheumatoid arthritis. Again, it's all with the risk to benefit ratio. Here is what wiki has to say: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methotrexate. I choose Wiki for the links because it is more 'reader friendly' than other medical sites, and pretty balanced...


Number 1:  The Determination--All in Moderation


Here's what Reiki Doc has to add: Is this a drug? Wasn't it Fifteen Most Dangerous Drugs? And this is number ONE?! 'Moderation' is a tricky concept.  Let's call it, 'Inner Knowing'--get your facts, and listen to your gut once you have good, non-fear-based data. And sleep on it! In this day and age, know that 'food is a medicine' and further, getting rid of poisons that are marketed as 'food' is going to have a pretty dramatic effect on your overall health. Crystals, energy healing, Reiki, sound therapy, light therapy are all the ways of the future. Do what 'feels right' to you, and be sure to test, test, test to measure your progress with each form of treatment. Be sure to make an informed decision every step of the way. 

Then again, there's always the Pendulum! Here's how to use one to have Spirit 'guidance' when making a decision! http://reikidoc.blogspot.com/2012/11/vote-your-pendulum.html


Aloha and Mahalos,
Namaste,

Reiki Doc

I've been in the MRI scanner for a pituitary tumor, and my right ACL--and I STILL do not like it! (If you ever have to go, ask for music or earplugs, and a blanket. It's cold and LOUD.)
