Suicidal Allergies!

Hey-Just when I thought it was safe to go outside and smell the flowers, I realized that I should kill myself first...

Wait a minute. Wait just a suicidal moment....Did I take Singulair?

Poor Merck & Co. Just after finalizing a class action suit against them for their Vioxx mess, coping with it's Vytorin failure, and preparing for the back lash from the Fosomax fall out, they are hit with this today: "The FDA Announces that it believes Merck's Singulair allergy medicine causes people to commit suicide!"

Now, I don't know about you, but I prefer seasonal allergy's itchy nose and watery eyes to DEATH! ( I am sure most women prefer having monthly periods instead of quarterly ones to cancer and death as well, but that's a matter for another post...)

Singulair, (which accounts for $4.3 billion in sales this year alone), is one of the most prescribed and highly marketed asthma and allergy drugs..we await the FDA's findings, but Merck has already included :"....suicidal thinking and behaviors..." to it's list of possible side effects on the label of Singulair.

Gee....and I thought constipation was bad! Yeesh...

As the title says, medicine's side effects are many times worse that the problem they are treating.

Why not try safe, effective, green and holistic Chiropractic instead? None of the patients kills themselves after an adjustment, I promise!

Food, Fat and You...

I am constantly amazed at the myriad lies people accept as truth when it comes to food, nutrition, and weight loss.

In my class on Monday, April 7, at the Adult School of Chatham, Madison and Florham Park, (, I will try and dispel some of the rumors and misinformation concerning why people gain weight and have poor health due to what they eat.

The latest bunch of bunk concerns a study that showed that artificially sweetened soft drinks actually make you gain more weight. The conclusion was based on the flawed interpretation of the study. Yes, by fooling your brain into thinking you are eating sugar, your body will still crave the real sugar due to the fact that the artificial sweetener will not change your brain-blood sugar level even though it tastes sweet.

What they then jump to conclude is: Since you still want the real sugar, you end up having the sugary one anyway and now you drank 2 soft drinks: One with sugar and one with artificial sweetener.

I say this: If you drank water, seltzer, or an artificially sweetened beverage, you are still saving your body from the empty 150-400 calories. Period.

Remember: All of the studies that push you to take more drugs; eat more crap food; and pile on more sweets are financed by the people they serve. They are geared to drive you down the path of poor health and nutrition, and, apparently, they do their job well.

Why eat well and exercise, when you can do neither and just take drugs to mask the symptoms of poor health? Welcome to America!

Poor Dennis Quaid....

Last Sunday night, 60 Minutes aired the heart-wrenching story of how a hospital mistake almost caused the death of the Quaid's newly born twin daughters.

Dennis told the story of how the mix-up occurred: It seems as though the newborns were kept at the hospital overnight because of a possible staph infection--(a hospital favorite, BTW: both the iatrogenic staff infection and wanting to keep babies "for observation" in house over night). While there, the docs kept the babies on continuous IV anti-biotics. (Welcome home, new immune system!!). Since, of course, we wouldn't want the little one's IV tubes a cloggin' by the bodies natural defenses, they were given Heparin.

Here's where the fun really began! Instead of giving the newborn babies the usual dose of 10 units of Heparin each, they gave them the adult dose of 10,000 units each!! Needless to say, the babies bodies did not like that. They bled from every pore and opening: The umbilicus, noses, ears, eyes, etc. Blood spurted out to the walls!

When the Quaids showed up the next day, the infants were near death. And get this: The hospital didn't even call the parents!! And then the staff said "...well, it's a good thing they were in the hospital when this happened..."

What?? WHAT?!!

That's the reason they almost died, you idiots!!

The Quaids have started a foundation to make the public aware that medical mistakes are very prevalent. Too little, too late, I say. It's unfortunate that something has to happen to a celebrity before anyone notices or cares. Here are the facts:

More people die each year in the United States from medical errors than from highway accidents, breast cancer or AIDS, a federal advisory panel reported this year.

The report from the National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine cited studies showing between 44,000 and 98,000 people die each year because of mistakes by medical professionals.
"That's probably an underestimate for two reasons," noted Dr. Donald Berwick of the Institute of Medicine.
"One is, there are many different kinds of errors we never learn about -- even in retrospective studies -- because they are never written down. And second, these studies did not include other areas of care like home care, nursing homes and ambulatory care centers," Berwick said.

The groundbreaking report urged Congress to create a National Center for Patient Safety within the Department of Health and Human Services to set goals for avoiding medical mistakes, track progress in meeting them and to fund research on better ways to prevent such errors.

Actually, most of these involve drugs. As the title ABOVE states: MEDICINE IS KILLING US!!

Our Drinking Water is Drugged!!

A vast array of pharmaceuticals — including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones — have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans, an Associated Press investigation shows

The presence of so many prescription drugs — and over-the-counter medicines like acetaminophen and ibuprofen — in so much of our drinking water is heightening worries among scientists of long-term consequences to human health. In the course of a five-month inquiry, the AP discovered that drugs have been detected in the drinking water supplies of 24 major metropolitan areas — from Southern California to Northern New Jersey, from Detroit to Louisville, Ky.

How do the drugs get into the water?

People take pills. Their bodies absorb some of the medication, but the rest of it passes through and is flushed down the toilet. The waste water is treated before it is discharged into reservoirs, rivers or lakes. Then, some of the water is cleansed again at drinking water treatment plants and piped to consumers.

But most treatments do not remove all drug residue.And while researchers do not yet understand the exact risks from decades of persistent exposure to random combinations of low levels of pharmaceuticals, recent studies — which have gone virtually unnoticed by the general public — have found alarming effects on human cells and wildlife.

Well, is this anything new to me? Of course not! We are so over medicated and drug-dependent, fed down our throat my drug ad men, MD's, and Big Pharma, that we are ACTUALLY URINATING DRUGS! Our water is filled with this pharmaceutical residue!

What to do? Drink bottled water! I, of course, recommend Moutainwood Spring water, as spring water is filtered at the aquifer, then treated again before we drink it, but it still contains most of the important minerals we need.

Happy drinking!

Yours in health,

Vaccines and Autism...So Perfect Together

When I first became a physician, I, too, was already brainwashed by my previous education and mostly conservative medical background. I simply thought the "anti-vaccine" movement among chiropractors was composed of kooks and left-wing health nuts.

Then, I educated myself. In 1981, I myself became allergic to Thimerosol which used to be the preservative in Bausch & Lomb's Contact Lens products, like saline. After investigating, I found that Thimerosol was actually MERCURY!! Yes, Mercury-the extremely toxic heavy metal that accumulates over time in the body!! You never eliminate it!

Yes-That same metal that they recently took out of all thermometers; that kills the fish and we are supposed to not even smell the VAPORS of....

Can you believe it is used to PRESERVE VACCINES???? That we inject this extremely toxic heavy metal directly into the bodies of infants hundreds of times???

Big Pharma has always denied the Thimerosol is a problem, but consider these facts:

1. There is an almost direct correlation with the rise in autism to the rise in the number of required vaccines since the 1960's.

2. In populations that do not vaccinate, like the Amish, there are almost NO cases of autism!

3. Even though they continually denied it was a problem, Big Pharma has systematically and deliberately been removing Thimerosol from vaccines over the last few years with no explained reason or press about it. Hmmmmm....

4. Refer back a few posts. NJ requires more vaccines for infants than any state!!

What do you think??

Did You Die from the Bird Flu yet?

Has your doctor encouraged you to get a flu shot? Perhaps you've heard dire predictions of the "worst flu season in years" and want to make sure you're protected? Well, here's the rub: Flu shots are neither as safe nor effective as you've been lead to believe.

It turns out the government and certain interested parties have worked very hard to convince you the flu vaccine is your best protection against the flu. And that just isn't true. In fact, most of what you've been told about the vaccine is a myth.

A special research alert from the researchers at the Health Sciences Institute (HSI) debunks those myths with the facts. For example, you've probably seen this very scary (but not quite true) statistic put out by the CDC: "The flu kills 36,000 people each year

The facts are quite different, however. When the HSI research team dug deeper they found that, according to a 2005 report from the CDC itself, influenza (the flu) is listed as a cause of death for just 1,806 people in the US. The big, scary 36,000 number is a result of lumping deaths from pneumonia into the CDC's flu-related death statistic, but pneumonia kills roughly 50 times more people on an annual basis than the flu. And the flu vaccine has absolutely no preventative or protective effect against pneumonia.

And that's just one of the facts surrounding the flu shot you need to know. For example:

Does the flu shot protect against all strains of the flu? NO! Only 2 or 3 of 100's
Does the flu shot contain unsafe ingredients (like mercury and anti-freeze)? YES! It STILL contains Mercury in most cases
Why does the CDC push the flu shot so aggressively? BIG PHARMA
Does the flu shot save lives? Not many, if any.
There are safe, natural ways to protect you from getting the flu - no vaccine needed. They are called HEALTHY LIFESTYLE CHOICES!

Can you believe any scientific studies done by drug companies?

After I finished teaching my class on Weight Loss and Nutrition at the Summit Adult School last Thursday night, I heard another disturbing "scientific study" on the use of supplements on the radio.

Of course, the big drug companies hate that we are trying to keep ourselves healthy through diet, exercise, and chiropractic-they want us to stay sick and take drugs. So anything, like vitamins, that might help save your life become an "evil doer" in their eyes.

This study stated, "Research has shown....blah, blah, blah......that cancer risk can not be improved by supplements.....". Now, get this: "The study followed several 2-pack-a-day smokers over 3 years; some who took Vitamin A and others that did not. Their conclusion: Vitamin A did not prevent lung cancer in either group..."

What?? WHAT!!!???

That's like saying: "We took 2 groups of men. One group put on rain hats; the other did not. Then, we dropped both groups in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean from a Boeing 747 head-first. There was little difference in the wetness of either group's head after 3 years in the water. Our conclusion: Rain hats will not keep men's heads dry..."

Look, let's call a spade a spade. You can't stop a bullet with a breadboard on your chest, but I bet it would increase your chances of survival ever so slightly...that's what they were doing by taking Vitamin A. (Heck, if the study scientists had invested as much time into having the men actually QUIT SMOKING, who knows?).

No-don't take vitamins. Don't eat right. Don't exercise. But if your artificial heart kills more humans than it helps and you need a good paying job, Lipitor needs a new spokesperson-QUICK!

New Vaccines for infants??

Day 2 of our blog...

I am sitting here reeling from the news that my home state, good ole' over-taxed NJ, is the first state in the nation to require the flu vaccine for infants, along with Hep-B and a slew of other potent concoctions. They are trying for the HPV vaccine for infants, too!

Of course, I want my 1 week old infant protected from sexually transmitted diseases! God only knows what could be happening "behind the scenes" in those infant bars and clubs! You can never trust a nursery these days....

And, many infants die of HEP-B infections, (maybe 3 or 4 in all of 2001), which is also usually sexually transmitted, that we should subject 5,000,000 infants to the potentially dangerous vaccine!

What do you think?

Now mind you, that is beside the fact that most flu vaccines are still Thimerosol, (read that MERCURY), preserved.
