The Tragedy of Modern Medicine
After spending trillions of dollars on medical research, modern medicine has made no progress in addressing our growing epidemic of chronic disease. For example, over a trillion dollars has been spent on cancer research, yet the death rate from cancer is the same as it was in 1950. To hide this colossal failure, the cancer industry uses smoke and mirrors to lie with statistics and dupe the public into thinking that progress has been made and that more money should be spent.
We tend to measure progress by the amount of money spent and how many tens of thousands of studies are published each year. Yet each new study only adds to the complexity, chaos, and failure; no one even attempts to manage all this information. The enormous amount of data produced is mystifying. And if that isn’t bad enough, according to the National Institutes of Health, almost 90 percent of all federally-funded medical studies are scientifically worthless and a waste of money. It is a challenging problem trying to sort through this mess to find something of value. This is not progress.
On occasion, I have asked to see copies of the all the test results from various disease patients. Sometimes they show up with large boxes full of paper. Yet after enormous sums being spent, the patient is no better, and there is no plan for restoring the patient’s health. The truth is most of this money is wasted. It has already been established that standard lab testing cannot determine the underlying causes of disease.
Here is the truth: outside of trauma care and crisis intervention, modern medicine doesn’t work. What is needed is to collapse all this confusion, complexity, and mystery into a few simple governing principles that practitioners and patients alike can put to use to prevent and reverse disease. This is precisely what I have done in all of my books. The Beyond Health Model of health and disease takes the mystery out of disease and gives you a plan and the power to get well, stay well, and never be sick again. The concept of one disease and only two causes of disease is so simple it can be taught to a child, yet so powerful that people all over the world have put their “incurable diseases” into remission by applying these simple principles. These principles should be taught in medical school.
Any of my books will tell you what you need to know, but my latest book The Great American Health Hoax is a good place to start for most people. I highly recommend it, especially for the chapter on the maintenance list. This chapter tells you in very clear language how to maintain the human body so you can live a long life free of disease.
Be well and enjoy!
