TYPE 2 HYPOTHYROIDISM

Most chronic pain is just one symptom of hypothyroidism according to Mark Starr, MD

"Most chronic pain is just one symptom of a much greater problem, which accounts for the majority of patients' illnesses. The problem is hypothyroidism," Mark Starr, MD writes in his wonderful book Hypothyroidism Type 2: The Epidemic (p. 24).

He also notes that main stream medicine has not recognized this, and at a two-day national conference for pain doctors, there was no mention of hormone imbalances as a possible cause for chronic pain. Read the entire article | Email this article

Richard Moore, MD, PhD; 3 newer blood pressure drugs had worse health outcome than diuretics

"[A blood pressure study called the ALLHAT study found that three newer blood pressure drugs] had far worse health outcomes than the original, cheap thiazide diuretics," wrote Richard Moore, MD, PhD, professor and research scientist, and author of the book "The High Blood Pressure Solution".

"As one author of the paper wrote, 'We cant say whether the diuretics were better than -- or not as bad as -- the other groups of drugs."

"Since it is well established that thiazide diuretics often cause diabetes, it well may be the later." Read the entire article | Email this article

Richard Moore, MD, PhD: There is no evidence that blood pressure drugs reduce the risk of death

“In my book, 'The High Blood Pressure Solution', you will find that [there] is no evidence that antihypertensive drugs save lives,” wrote Richard Moore, MD, PhD, professor and research scientist,

"[In fact,] the very best study ever done of drug treatment of 17,000 hypertensives over a five year period found 'no overall reduction in death rate' in those treated with drugs." Read the entire article | Email this article

RICHARD MOORE, MD, PHD

Richard Moore, MD, PhD: Drugs are not the answer to hypertension

In 1986, professor and research scientist, Richard Moore, MD, PhD, showed in his book "The K Factor: Reversing and Preventing High Blood Pressure Without Drugs", that 95% of the cases of hypertension are due to a low ratio of potassium to sodium in the American diet.

“We did not emphasize it, but since you can't repair a dietary deficiency with a synthetic chemical [a drug] this clearly indicated that drugs are not the answer for hypertension," Dr. Moore noted.

Dr. Moore also notes that back in the 1980's, the largest blood pressure drug study to-date at that time, which included "17,000 people over a 5-year period, demonstrated that lowering blood pressure with drugs had zero effect on over-all mortality!" Read the entire article | Email this article

OVERTREATMENT

Over-treatment reduces life expectancy says Black Swan author, Nassim Taleb

"I believe that the healthcare system... now... reduces life expectancy of patients... [because of] over-treatment," said Nassim Taleb, Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at Polytechnic Institute of New York University and Visiting Professor at London Business School and author of The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable.

Taleb noted this on MSNBC's show, The Morning Meeting with Dylan Ratigan, on August 3rd, 2009. Read the entire article | Email this article

BE CAREFUL WHO YOU TAKE ADVICE FROM

‘Don’t ask a barber if you need a haircut’ says Black Swan author, Nassim Taleb

"Don't ask a barber if you need a haircut" said Nassim Taleb, Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at Polytechnic Institute of New York University and Visiting Professor at London Business School and author of The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable.

Taleb noted this on MSNBC's show, The Morning Meeting with Dylan Ratigan, on August 3rd, 2009.

Let me say this in another way to drive the point home.

Never ask...
  • a drug company or

  • a drug company salesman or

  • or a university researcher

  • or a doctor

  • or a psychiatrist

  • or a professional medical organization like:
    • the American Psychiatric Association or

    • the American Diabetes Association or

    • the National Cholesterol Education Program...

  • or scientist from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or

  • or anyone from the World Health Organization (WHO) or anywhere else...


... if a drug is...

  • safe or

  • effective or

  • can cause a side effect or

  • can cause serious harm or

  • if you should take this drug...


... if the doctor or the researcher or the scientist has ever been paid by a drug company as...

  • a researcher or

  • as a "Consultant" or

  • to be on their "Scientific Advisory Panel" or

  • to be on their "Speakers Bureau" or

  • to do studies of their drugs or

  • to coauthor a paper about their drugs.


The reason for this is that money affects what people say.

Drug companies only pay people who say things that will help the drug companies sell more drugs.

If a doctor or a psychiatrist or a researcher or a scientist were to ever say anything negative about a drug, the drug company would immediately stop paying them as a "consultant" or a "scientific advisor" or as a "researcher" or to be on their "speakers bureau".

So, if they have been paid, you will not get an objective opinion, but instead, only one side of the story. Read the entire article | Email this article

BLOOD PRESSURE DRUGS

Women taking a diuretic were 9% MORE likely to die of cardiovascular disease than with no drugs

Women, 50- to 79-years-old with high blood pressure and no history of cardiovascular disease, who were taking a diuretic to lower their blood pressure were 9% MORE likely to die of cardiovascular disease during a 5.9 year follow-up than women of the same age who also had hypertension but were taking NO blood pressure medicines even though the average systolic pressure was 13 points LOWER in the drug group than the NO drug group (136 mm Hg vs 149 mm Hg) according to a 2004 study.


Let me say this the other way.


Older women with hypertension who were NOT taking blood pressure drugs were 8% LESS likely to die of cardiovascular disease during a 5.9 year follow-up than women of the same age who were taking a diuretic even though the average systolic pressure of the women taking NO blood pressure medicines was 13 points HIGHER than those taking a diuretic (149 mm Hg vs 136 mm Hg).

Traditional psychiatrists will often tell you that that you are having "rebound anxiety" or "rebound depression" or "rebound psychosis", and that you need to take these drugs forever and will never be normal without them, but this is not true Gwen notes.
