'Why You Shouldn't Ask Your Doctor'
January 17, 2013 –– 'Why You Shouldn't Ask Your Doctor' is the title of a new book by Dr. Richard Ruhling, a board-certified internist who taught Health Science at Loma Linda University. His reasons? Drugs are mostly symptomatic and don't address the cause.
Medical textbooks are filled with diseases of "unknown etiology." But if they don't know the cause, how can the drug be the cure? Yes, Avandia helps control blood sugar, but heart attack are up 45%.
The lie promoted by big pharma since the 70's is that medical care is "healthcare," when there's an inverse relationship--the more pills you take, the worse your health gets and your risk of dying is much higher.
The Journal of American Medical Association reported 106,000 deaths in hospitals from Adverse Drug Reactions, April 15, 1998. Two years later the Western Journal of Medicine reported 199,000 deaths in outpatients. Together, these make 305,000, enough to make medical care the third leading cause of death.
That article (June, 2000) indicated "116 million extra visits to a physcian per year, 76 million additional prescriptions, 17 million emergency department visits, 8 million admissions to hospital, 3 million admissions to long-term care.'
This explains why a drug seller told Dr. Ruhling, "If you want to build your practice, just start writing prescriptions.' These are reasons 'Why You Shouldn't Ask Your Doctor.'
Ruhling's book has a hundred common conditions with a page or two on each from allergies and asthma to vaccination and vomiting, and natural remedies for each.
Dr. Ruhling agrees with Hippocrates, 'Let your food be your medicine,' but says modern medicine has DuPont's slogan, 'Better Living Through Chemistry.' He says: 'it's a lie--ask any senior with a bag of pills--if their mind is still clear!'
