It has been said, and I have observed through my reading, that the so-called medical community has always been subject to “group-think for us.” The CDC recommends, the FDA states, research shows... yet, who do you believe?
"Oh, but there is data," so the government agencies state and the world embraces this data. Who may I ask pays for this data and research? Maybe the drug companies? Maybe those who are paying for certain results?
Well maybe there are physicians, scientists and other researcher's that may say,
“We don’t care about your data; we believe you are wrong.”
There are many good physicians out there who have been threatened, ostracized, and de-licensed because of their thinking that is not in line with the above mentioned. I worked for an integrative physician once, and her patients loved her and flocked to her for advice.
She was a "teaching" physician, in that she clearly explained how the body worked and why we must give the body what it needs to be healthy. People wanted to know, they wanted to learn "how" to give their body what it needed. Sadly, physicians like her are in very short supply.
I recently read an article written by Dr Lee Hieb who explained how medical consensus is robbing patients of their health. It focused on Vitamin D. It was called THE VITAMIN D STORY (Feds keeping people sick).
She stated that, "With time, ultimately, truth prevails, and renegade but correct physicians are vindicated – but not in time to save those patients who die from the mistaken consensus. Today, this “group-think” is depriving people from some of the best and cheapest medical treatment available – supplementation with adequate Vitamin D3."
She went on to explain the following:
Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with childhood rickets – a bone disorder – for over a hundred years. And it has been known since the 1970's that those living on the equator, regardless of particular locale, have lower rates of multiple sclerosis, colon cancer and depression. But more recently, many astute observers have discovered that low Vitamin D leads to many other disorders, including cardiac arrhythmia, breast cancer, adult fractures, dementia, heart attack risk and even diabetes.
Most recently, studies have demonstrated that higher levels of Vitamin D improve longevity and are beneficial at preventing influenza – even better than vaccination. Studies showing beneficial effects of high vitamin D levels are quite convincing. They not only show a correlation between low Vitamin D blood levels and the problem, but show improvement in the disease or prevention of the condition when levels are raised up through supplementation.
As an example, it has been shown in the laboratory that heart muscle does not contract well unless adequate Vitamin D is present. An Italian population study showed that low Vitamin D was proportional to atherosclerotic plaques (clogging of the arteries). Furthermore, a Japanese study of dialysis patients demonstrated that correcting Vitamin D deficiency significantly lowered death from heart attacks and heart disease in general.
These are only a few of the rapidly expanding body of literature supporting the role of Vitamin D in multiple disease prevention.
Now it doesn’t take a medical degree to figure out that a cheap treatment that has such potential upside with so little (if any) downside is worth doing as real preventive medicine. But the government consensus – developed by intellectuals who feel they are infinitely smarter than we are, and should be able to make our choices for us – is that there is no evidence for the beneficial claims.
If they emerge from their collective basement, they will find pages and pages of references.
Don’t believe it? Do a simple Google search. Or just read the newspaper. Besides frequent articles in medical and general science journals supporting Vitamin D3 supplementation, there are monthly news stories about this rapidly advancing science.
Sadly, the government doesn’t just want to discourage you from taking extra Vitamin D, they want to prohibit it. Senator Dick Durban, D-Ill., in 2011 introduced a bill (innocuously labeled the “Supplement Labeling Act”) which would so over-regulate the supplement industry that they could no longer supply products such as Vitamin D3 at a cost affordable to the average consumer.
To be a scientific leader in this new world order is to be wrong. If the phone company had this philosophy, we would still be tied to land line rotary dials.
Science requires freedom to consider the alternatives, and in medicine, the freedom to make our own choices – not have government bureaucrats or the Institute of Medicine make them for us.
