Medicine has never changed. I'm a 58 year old male and my blood pressure is 103 over 65. My doctor is constantly trying to put my on statins. My dad and both older brothers went on those and I saw how much their aging accelerated. I don't need studies. I'm not blind.

I remember in the summer of 1982 when women in Canada were being arrested for breast feeding in public venues. The head of the Canadian Medical Association nearly had a baby on television. No one had ever been more outraged that women would ignore the 70,000 Canadian doctors who unanimously disapproved of breast feeding. They'd opposed it through the 60s and 70s and likely would still oppose it if a critical mass of mothers hadn't opposed them. The police were more than willing to put a boot on these women's faces, just like today over peaceful Covid protests.

In the 1990 my dad had a heart attack and listen to his doctors who told him to cut out saturated fat and replace it with margarine and seed oils. The strange thing is that in 1981 all the studies had been completed, the data collated and the studies published that showed that arterial sclerosis is cause by oxidized lipids (polyunsaturated fat. ie seed oils) being stored under the endothelial tissue. Strange how 40 years later, doctors, who have virtually zero training in diet and nutrition, still tell people to avoid saturated fats. Are these people working for the same experts who banned meat production in Netherlands?

Then there was the American Medical Association's official policy to recommend smoking throughout the 1950s. They claimed it wasn't proven to be beneficial yet, the studies were oncoming, but it was obvious that smoking was beneficial to health. At the time housewives, those dummies, called cigarettes "cancer sticks." And also, the British Medical Journal had published the first high quality study showing that smoking caused cancer, in 1951.

At the onset of WW II German medical doctors were relieved. You see, they'd been performing horrific experiments on German citizens for the past 20 years trying to prove various eugenics theories. It wasn't a fringe, nonscientific belief. It was consensus science, worldwide. Most US states had written it into law. The German doctors first began experimenting on disabled adults until they were all dead, before using disabled children. When they ran out of them they moved onto visible minority adults and then onto visible minority children. It was just by good luck that when they killed all these people the war had started and they had more experimental subjects than ever. So they drew up their plans for what kind of experimental program they could run if they were unrestrained and then organized and oversaw the holocaust. It was actual medical doctors that were the masterminds, if you could call them that, of the holocaust.

Allopathic Medicine came into being by act of law by US Congress in 1911 after Rockefeller had funded the Flexner Report and most likely, some congressional wheels. The thing was the standard of care of Allopathy was treating patients by injecting them with mercury and/or lead in order to "displace" disease, as well as blood letting. Apparently, Congress thought this was better than the quackery practiced by others.

According to Nassim Taleb, it wasn't until the 1960s that they started doing clinical trials to figure out what worked. I was born in 1964. It seems like yesterday.

The history of humanity is a shitshow and it's not getting better. If I had to distill the cause down to one fundamental explanation I'd say it was pride. Nobody wants to accept the truth. So they equivocate in a way where they appear to be accepting their own faults and failings when really, they're making excuses.

Look at Dr. Malhotra, the British doctor that came out recently saying the gene therapies are dangerous. His own father died after getting jabbed on his son's "expert" recommendation. After that he looked into it said they're unsafe. But the original trials showed they were ineffective and unsafe and even the claim of reducing the spread, though untestable at the time given the constraints, ought to have been thought improbable given the fact the "vaccines" were accepted as being "unsterilizing." What did Malhotra do, read the intro and conclusions? I read the studies and I knew they were bad news and I work in a factory. He claims to this day to be an expert. As long as people refuse to repent fully of what they've done any attempt at reconciliation and resolution ought to be taken an attempt to deceive. And this applies to everybody, not just doctors or people in authority.

We can't say it enough: self care isn't selfish!

We, as societies, have been trained more and more aggressively to relinquish our personal responsibilities. It's insidious and subliminal most folk don't reralise they are being 'guided'. The modern result is expecting to be able to have a medical intervention which will stop symptoms/cure the disease in order to carry on with the lifestye which created the problem in the first place, rather than asking what the individual can do as a first step to healing and preventing further disease. That parents won't read with or otherwise educate their children because it is 'the school's job' and then blame the school for an 'underperforming' or dropout child because then blame is pointed at the eduction system. That poeple use the wortds proffered by their device of choice rather than sticking to the word they were going to use, because it's easier and requires no thoughtful decision. All those things allow those who do not see what is happening to be moved gently, silently towards obedience and compliance, with the blame culture resting on someone else's shoulders if something goes wrong.

What relinquishing personal responsibility does, in whatever aspect of our life, even those seemingly tiny, insignificant things, results in building our own prison. Once it is seen it is too late. We are also offered false choices. Would you like the purple one or the green one. Of course the phrase initially popped into my head as red/blue, so I chose different colours for the example - see how deep it runs? This programme or that one? Well, actually I don't want either/any of the choices. Easy for me, I never had TV and don't listen to radio. I choose every media I engage with.T rouble is, so many are numbed into acquiescence they don't even realise they don't want what is offered and will choose something rather than nothing. We all know 'The best of a bad lot'. Sure it's more effort to walk away and make a proper choice. The bottom line is easy necessarily the best...? I would say in most cases no, we need to put our own effort on the line and be respobsible for our self.

We need to think for ourselves, and be responsible for the outcomes of our own decisions. We need to be able to accept when we got it wrong and stop the default of pushing blame.

Thank you Remnant MD, I love reading your work.

Worked inner city Chicago in the 70’s. We didn’t have private duty nurses for the rich and famous, like I experienced in LA at an upmarket hospital in Beverly Hills in the 80’s. But care was certainly given by myself and many doctors I worked with. It is refreshing to hear a doctor suggest taking responsibility for our own health through good care of ourselves. I often think doctors are in a tough predicament when a person shows up in their office and after years of ignoring their own self care, the patient wants doctor to perform a miracle. Doctors, in my day were put on a pedestal and respected. Many deserved that honour. I know there are many doctors who care deeply for their patients, but something has changed. Access, insurance, money, time slots, advancements in healthcare all of these, none of these? Personally, I would not want to be in a hospital today as a patient or worker. So I look after my husband and myself and ensure we do all we can to stay away from our GP and or a hospital. The world has changed.
