On Modern Medicine

Powerful Quotes For Cancer & Other “Patients” On Modern Orthodox Medicine, Its Dangers, Scientific (?) Nature, Conventional Doctors & A Different Truth

What you must understand, Mr. Gearin-Tosh, is that we know so little about how the body works.
Sir David Weatherall, Regius professor of medicine at Oxford University and head of the Institute of Molecular Medicine, to a Stanford University professor who healed himself of one of the most lethal cancers known using natural means.

I no longer believe in Modern Medicine. I believe that despite all the super technology and elite bedside manner..., the greatest danger to your health is the doctor who practices Modern Medicine. I believe that Modern Medicine's treatments for disease are seldom effective, and that they're often more dangerous than the disease they're designed to treat. ... I believe that more than ninety percent of Modern Medicine could disappear from the face of the earth - doctors, hospitals, drugs and equipment - and the effect on our health would be immediate and beneficial. I believe that Modern Medicine has gone too far, by using in everyday situations extreme treatments designed for critical conditions. Every minute of every day Modern Medicine goes too far, because Modern Medicine prides itself on going too far. ... the product of this [medical] factory is not health at all. So when you go to the doctor, you're seen not as a person who needs help with his or her health, but as a potential market for the medical factory's products.
Dr Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.

In her paper "Is US health really the best in the world?" published in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), July 26, 2000, Barbara Starfield, MD, MPH, of Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health among many other things details the death statistics due to medical treatment in the US, While numbers are sometimes based on estimates, the total of individuals annually killed by the US medical system may be a whopping 225,000. Causes of death include medical errors, unnecessary surgery, medicines approved as safe by the FDA and others.

In the field of modern medicine the only things you can count on are the upsetting effects of drugs and the doctors' bills that accompany them.
Ross Horne

Doctors, medical researchers and drug companies like to persuade all present and potential consumers of health care that medicine is a science and has advanced far beyond the mystical incantations and witch doctor remedies of the past. But modern medicine is not a science and modern clinicians and medical researchers are not scientists. Modern clinicians may use scientific techniques but in the way that they treat their patients they are still quacks...Too many modern doctors neither cure nor care... The savage truth is that most medical research is organised, paid for, commissioned or subsidised by the drug industry (and the food, tobacco and alcohol industries). This type of research is designed, quite simply, to find evidence showing a new product is of commercial value... Ignorance has become commonplace in medical practice...
Dr. Vernon Coleman, M.D., D. Sc., author of 114 books with translations into 23 languages selling in over 50 countries
From Dr. Vernon Coleman’s article Modern Medicine is not a science

What hope is there for medical science to ever become a true science when the entire structure of medical knowledge is built around the idea that there is an entity called disease which can be expelled when the right drug is found?
John H. Tilden, M.D.

According to scientific criteria, [Dr. Hamer’s] German New Medicine has to be declared as true according to the present state of science and to the best of our current knowlege. Whereas orthodox (conventional) medicine, scientifically speaking, is an amorphous mush, which cannot even be falsified, let alone verified due to its being based on fundamentally misunderstood (alleged) facts. According to scientific criteria, conventional medicine can only be called a hotchpotch of hypotheses, hence unscientific and to the best of human judgment false.
Prof. Dr. Hans-Ulrich Niemitz assessing the scientific validity of Dr. Hamer’s “German New Medicine versus conventional medicine (translated by Healing Cancer Naturally)

Modern medicine, the entire industry and social machinery of it is, at its root, a totalitarian system. By that, I mean that there is a central ideology that seeks to enforce its domination by methodically obstructing any ideas that run counter to it.
Paraphrasing Celia Farber

I was at one time a great lover of the medical profession... I no longer hold that opinion... Doctors have almost unhinged us... I regard the present system as black magic... Hospitals are institutions for propagating sin. Men take less care of their bodies and immorality increases... Ignoring the soul, the profession puts men at its mercy and contributes to the diminution of human dignity and self control... I have endeavoured to show that there is no real service of humanity in the profession, and that it is injurious to mankind... I believe that a multiplicity of hospitals is not a test of civilization. It is rather a symptom of decay.
From Mahatma Gandhi, "The Health Guide", pages 5-10, 1965

We don't say we know our doctors are good, we say we have faith in them. We trust them. Don't think doctors aren't aware of the difference. And don't believe for a minute that they don't play it for all it's worth. Because what's at stake is the whole ball game, the whole ninety per cent or more of Modern Medicine that we don't need, that, as a matter of fact, is out to kill us. Modern Medicine can't survive without our faith, because Modern Medicine is neither an art nor a science. It's a religion.
Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.

Modern Medicine would rather you die using its remedies than live by using what physicians call "quackery".
Dr Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.

When I got out of medical school, I was as typical and orthodox a person as you could find, akin to stage three anesthesia. I was asleep.
Larry Dossey MD, author of Space, Time and Medicine; Beyond Illness; Recovering the Soul; and Healing Words

I have endeavored to show that there is no real service of humanity in the profession [of medicine] and that it is injurious to mankind.
Mahatma Gandhi

Ignorance, tradition, financial gain, a busy schedule and blindly following a corrupt system is no excuse when you have the lives of innocent people in your hands! Allopathic doctors provide an invaluable service when it comes to trauma surgery, emergency room care, poison and burn victims, and similar instances. When a doctor’s primary job is to blindly hand out drugs that often do more harm than good, or inject their patients with poisons for the sake of doing good, or cut off limbs and scoop out organs as a preventative measure, we draw the line! This behavior is unacceptable and destroying many lives each day in the name of medicine. Rather than trying to kill or separate diseases from the body, or mask symptoms with drugs, Naturally Oriented Therapeutic Doctors correct the underlying causes of the disease or symptoms and allow the body to restore itself. There are many scientifically proven alternatives and they do work!

Orthodox or Allopathic Medicine utilizes poisonous substances (drugs) in non-lethal dosages in order to suppress symptoms in an affected area. This approach neither addresses the cause of the disease condition, nor is it responsible for healing the patient. Rather, the use of drugs often will temporarily mask the outer manifestations of the malady, while at the same time, drive the disease deeper into the body...only to reappear at a later date, as a more serious, and chronic health threat. One of the many flaws of the orthodox approach is that it focuses on the disease condition itself, rather than the patient. The term wholistic (or holistic) sprang up to distinguish those physicians whose diagnostic gestalt considers all of the physical, emotional, and spiritual energies interacting with the patient... The thrust of the orthodox pharmaceutical agenda is to provide temporary relief, while never addressing the cause of the disease condition. This agenda insures regular visits to the doctor's office and requires the patient to routinely return to the pharmacy to refill his prescriptions....they want people to keep on coming back for more treatments and more drugs. A cured patient is a lost source of income. A sick patient who is marginally "improved" is a manageable patient...The profits from the so called "health-care" industry are staggering!
Ken Adachi in Forbidden Cures - Suppressed 'Alternative' Therapies

A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million. Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics.
The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million. The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million. The total number of iatrogenic deaths shown in the following table is 783,936. It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. The 2001 heart disease annual death rate is 699,697; the annual cancer death rate, 553,251.
Abstract of Death by Medicine, a very detailed scientifically referenced article found at mercola.com/2003/nov/26/death_by_medicine.htm

About the sublime status of doctors
“I am fond of telling doctor's office employees in on this... Doctors are the ONLY professionals whose employees often refer to them without using the article "the," as in, "Doctor will see you now," or "Doctor is only in on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, between 9AM and 3PM." There is NO OTHER PROFESSIONAL IN THE WORLD WHO DOES NOT GET A "THE" PUT IN FRONT OF HIS TITLE: "The Judge", "The Professor", "The General", "The Officer".
For mercy's sakes, they even put "the" in front of "Pope"! In fact, GOD is the ONLY other Name I can think of that does not get a "the" in front of it! So, please, join with me in letting those silly people in doctor's offices who say, "Doctor will see you now," know that even THE POPE gets a "the" in front of his name, and that the ONLY Being Who doesn't is GOD Himself! It will probably shock and annoy them, but that's just fine! It will get them to THINK!”
E. Yudenfriend who cured himself of lymphoma, considered incurable by mainstream medicine

Note by Healing Cancer Naturally: I think the above interesting observation definitely expresses the common kind of reverential attitude before the assumed all-knowing powerfulness of physicians deciding on people's life and death. We have a perfect match in German: we often refer to doctors - more or less ironically - as "Götter in Weiß”: Gods in White!

The inferior physician treats diseases; the superior physician teaches the well to remain well.
Nei Ching

It's supposed to be a secret, but I'll tell you anyway. We doctors do nothing. We only help and encourage the doctor within.
Albert Schweitzer, M.D.

No medical man during his student days is taught to think. He is expected to assimilate the thoughts of others and to bow to authority. Throughout the whole of his medical career he must accept the current medical fashions of the day or suffer the loss of prestige and place. No public appointments, no coveted preferments are open to the medical man who declines to parrot the popular shibboleths of his profession.
Dr. Hadwen in his book 'The Difficulties of Dr. Deguerre' on why most doctors will accept and perpetuate the status quo in medical treatment, no matter how unsatisfying or unsuccessful
