Health propaganda is pervasive. There are many misconceptions, omissions, distortions and lies surrounding the issue of health and medicine. Many are propagated by those who own Big Pharma (i.e. the Rockefellers and their ilk) who set the platform for Allopathy or Western Medicine to assume a monopoly and dominate healthcare — or more accurately “health management” — at the start of the 20th century. (This article The Flexner Report: How John D. Rockefeller Used the AMA to Take Over Western Medicine reveals how they did it.)
Unfortunately, much of this disinformation is unwittingly propagated by well-meaning parents who want their children to be healthy but simply don’t know how to see through all the propaganda. The result is a population that has been trained to look outside of itself for healing, to depend on Government and Big Pharma to take care of its health, and to unquestioningly accept the opinion of their (Western) Doctor. Meanwhile, epidemics of cancer, diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases (such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and dementia) rage throughout the US, Australia and many other Western nations.
With that in mind, here is a collection of the top 10 pieces of modern day propaganda in the area of health.
1. Your health is just dependent on chance and/or genetics.
Gotcha! How many people have fallen for this one? The common themes behind both of these beliefs are fatalism and finding an excuse not to take responsibility. If you’re fated or destined to get disease, what’s the point trying to live healthfully? If you frequently succumb to bad luck with your health, why try? It you’re stuck with “bad genes” and that’s just the way it is, what’s the point? It is true that genetics indicate tendencies and proclivities, but those tendencies and proclivities still have to be activated. Consider the groundbreaking work of Dr. Bruce Lipton on epigenetics, which affects how genes are read by cells and subsequently how they produce proteins. This website gives a sound introduction to the topic of epigenetics:
“Epigenetics Controls Genes. Certain circumstances in life can cause genes to be silenced or expressed over time. In other words, they can be turned off (becoming dormant) or turned on (becoming active).
Epigenetics Is Everywhere. What you eat, where you live, who you interact with, when you sleep, how you exercise, even aging – all of these can eventually cause chemical modifications around the genes that will turn those genes on or off over time. Additionally, in certain diseases such as cancer or Alzheimer’s, various genes will be switched into the opposite state, away from the normal/healthy state.
Epigenetics Makes Us Unique. Even though we are all human, why do some of us have blonde hair or darker skin? Why do some of us hate the taste of mushrooms or eggplants? Why are some of us more sociable than others? The different combinations of genes that are turned on or off is what makes each one of us unique. Furthermore, there have been indications that some epigenetic changes can be inherited.“
The point is this: you have control over which genes get expressed (activated) or suppressed (become dormant). In a sense, life is fragile. At the same time, you’re not just some powerless little speck of dust that has no choice or control over what happens – although it certainly suits those in authority for you to believe you are.
“[The] patient should be made to understand that he or she must take charge of his own life. Don’t take your body to a doctor as if he were a repair shop.” ~ Quentin Regestein
2. You can be always be cured by a magic pill from Big Pharma.
(…unless they don’t have one yet, in which case your disease is “incurable”.)
False. This is a corollary from the first point above. If you fall into the trap of not taking responsibility for your health – and I mean all aspects (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) – then you may tend to see the body like a machine or vehicle that needs repairing by a doctor-mechanic. You may also tend to believe the lie that Big Pharma has a magic pill for everything, that this magic pill can solve all of your problems (without any side effects) and that even if Big Pharma doesn’t have a magic pill now, they’ll have one in the future. However, one need only look at the shocking count of iatrogenic deaths (those caused by Western doctors and medical methods) – which is still the #3 leading killer of Americans — to realize that Western Medicine is causing a lot of grave damage as it treats people.
How can Big Pharma and Western Medicine ever create the “perfect cure” or the “cure for everything” when they are based on limited and materialistic scientific models that fail to understand the holographic and energetic nature of reality?
Besides, by buying and suppressing genuine cures, Big Pharma has shown that cares more about “treating” and “managing” disease (which is more profitable) than curing it (or healing it, which happens at a whole other level).
3. Cancer is a terminal disease and isn’t curable.
False! How many cancer survivors out there contradict his piece of modern day health propaganda? The number of effective and successful natural cancer remedies, cures and protocols is piling up. There are so many now: laetrile/amygdalin/vitamin B17 (usually from apricot kernels), DCA, cannabis oil, salvestrols, graviola/soursop, the maple bicarbonate treatment, intravenous injections of sodium bicarbonate (or baking soda) as pioneered by the Italian Dr. Simoncini, the Budwig diet, cesium chloride, the Gerson Therapy, the Hoxsey Cure, Essiac Tea, the anti-neoplaston treatment of Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski and others. CancerTutor.com is a great resource for those investigating it.
Yes, getting cancer may be scary, but it’s important to know there are natural options outside of toxic chemotherapy and radiation where the cure is deadlier than the disease.
