Doctors criticized for 'over-prescribing' harmful drugs for patients who can heal with healthy diet and exercise

(NaturalNews) Pharmaceutical companies spend big money on advertisements to constantly brainwash people to "ask their doctor" how a pill is right for them. Even after listing several terrible side effects, these commercials are still convincing, planting a dangerous seed in the minds of onlookers. In this mental programming, people stop learning how to take care of their own health and instead start depending on the prescription drug model of disease fabrication and side effect perpetuation.
Health suddenly becomes a complicated maze that people start to feel trapped in. Patients seek out a doctor, not realizing the doctor's education and expertise is heavily influenced by pharmaceutical companies.
Pharmaceutical "science" destroying the foundations of health and the art of healing, pressuring doctors to become drug pushersBy controlling the advertising space, pharmaceutical companies buy out and control medical knowledge. These companies "seal the deal" for themselves when they pay off doctors and medical journals, bribing professionals to promote and prescribe their products. In this way of thinking, true prevention is redefined as "early diagnosis," and a steady prescription drug regime is praised as a lifesaving protocol.
This model of care teaches people to be submissive to experts' synthetic preparations. People are no longer their own doctors; instead, they are trained to be lifelong patients. Integrating the building blocks of nutrition is suddenly viewed as practicing "alternative medicine" when it's really the foundation of quality living.
A band of leading doctors at the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC) is now highlighting these simple truths. Writing in the British Medical Journal, these leaders are now declaring that doctors are "over treating" patients with pills that are doing more harm than good. They also admit that patients are given unnecessary tests and pills by doctors who feel pressured to intervene. In other words, pharmaceutical "science" has complicated medical care and taken the foundation and art out of healing. Many pharmaceuticals have complicated the natural process of healing and turned doctors into drug dealers who are pressured by their drug overlords.
Patients are labeled with conditions when their problem is a simple imbalance that can be corrected through lifestyle changesAs the leaders point out, there are simpler, safer options that empower patients rather than burdening them, and these options are simply not being explored. They are being replaced by pharmaceutical brainwash and pressure. Doctors feel pressured to "do something" when a patient comes to them. This leads to unnecessary diagnoses and pill treatments that set off a cascading set of problems.
This overzealous medical culture suggests that "more is better," leading them to label patients with conditions that aren't really conditions at all. Health has become a mind game, and patients are being convinced by doctors, pharmaceutical companies and themselves that they have a problem when they really don't. A few simple adjustments in behavior or lifestyle could correct imbalances in body function, emotion and energy, but these simple adjustments are often overlooked.
The current medical culture values routine testing over intuitive care and listening to the body's signals. It values diagnosis and labeling over integrative approaches to correct imbalances. It values medical dependence and intervention over personal empowerment in the healing process.
Medical organizations to be retrained to identify unnecessary procedures and drug regimesLeaders at the AoMRC are now launching the Choosing Wisely Campaign, which calls on medical professionals to identify five routine procedures that aren't necessary at their organization.
Examples include ending prescription drugging for mildly raised blood pressure and depression and halting routine and unnecessary blood tests.
Instead of drugging people who are depressed, Professor Dame Sue Bailey of the AoMRC suggests that patients should be led toward group exercise classes or talking therapies instead.
She suggests that frequent blood tests for elderly patients only distresses them more because of their frail skin. This is also true for newborns, especially when babies are separated from a breastfeeding mother to be pricked unnecessarily as doctors search for problems that aren't there.
Likewise, patients with elevated blood pressure can be counseled on lifestyle changes before they are made dependent on a pill for their imbalance. Perhaps a few circulatory system-enhancing herbs like hawthorn berry and garlic could correct the imbalance.
The new Choosing Wisely campaign, which is already underway in the U.S. and Canada, is also advising patients to ask questions such as:
- Do I really need this test or procedure?
- Are there simpler options?
- What happens if I do nothing?
- Is my diagnosis really just an imbalance that can be corrected without pharmaceutical intervention?
