The demise of Western medicine in the age of COVID
I have just stopped listening to the story of Anna Hodgkinson and her 17-year-olddaughter Casey Who has had serious neurological symptoms since taking the Pfizer mRNA vaccine a month or so ago.
Here is Liz Gunn’s interview with Casey.
I don’t mind saying that it has torn me apart emotionally, so harrowing was her tale.
Not only was the hospital totally unable to help her but it was so bad that she had security staff laughing at her and one guard threatening her. The doctors failed to do even the most basic tests on her, such as an MRI when she had terrible pain and pressure in her head.
She received no pain medication beyond Panadol, let alone quite standard medication for tremors.
She has been left totally alone with with this, no help from the medical system because seemingly they do not know what to do and I suspect that they have been told that they can’t help or even acknowledge that the poison she has been injected with is the course although I know that whole sections of hospitals have been set up to deal with victims of vaccine injury.
I know the story of a friend of ours who recently had a knee replacement operation. She had to have the vaccine in order to have the operation and since then has been in terrible pain even though the signs are that the knee is healing. She was not given anything beyond the most basic of pain medication at the hospital only gave her medication because she had a psychologist and a neurologist who believed her and said that she was in pain.
The abuse that is meted out to people who have become seriously Ill because of the actions act of government, pharmaceutical companies and international health agencies in forcing a deadly jab on an unsuspecting population has reached a level that is unimaginable.
All of this has raised in my own mind my own story that pales in comparison to what others are forced to go through in their thousands and tens of thousands all over the world.
However, saying it is on my mind I would like to repeat my own story and perspective.
10 years ago I came off my horse and broke my left humorous. When the plaster came off I developed oedema in the ankles and was diagnosed with a condition called sarcoidosis which attacks the lungs.
This condition has become chronic.
I was treated with steroids and when, in the face of all their tests which were now normal, I reported that I was feeling worse and worse I was just dismissed.
I had a very good doctor, Dr William Crawford, who did his very best and never stinted on doing tests even if it meant going around the authorities. Unfortunately, he divided his time between clinics here and in Canada and I had to see some other practitioners that were incompetent at best and abusive at worst.
First I had to go through the standard of having the suggestion that it was all in my mind and there was nothing wrong. The medical centre lost my files and the doctor I was saying at the time did not even bother going through the files that were there and was telling me that I would feel at least 50% better if I lost weight. When I mentioned the possibility of making a complaint to the Health and Disability Commissioner he responded by offering me a bribe – a free session as an “inducement not to follow that course of action” (his words)
I had another case of a locum presuming to be my doctor, when I wanted advice about sleep medication, not listening to what I had to say and walking out on me without a word, not once but three times when I expressed my dissatisfaction and then misrepresenting the situation in her contemporaneous notes.
More recently, I consulted a young resident doctor who was genuinely interested in my case and took the time to do some research I sent him. When I saw the primary doctor he fed this information back to me as if it was coming from him and not me. Throughout al this I have never had any expectation they were going to “fix me” but I have throughout waited for just a little humility and acknowledgement this might be beyond them.
THE DEMISE OF WESTERN MEDICINE
Sometimes I wonder if my views are coloured by my own experiences over the years. Whatever I have happening to me the conventional western model has appeared totally incapable of grappling with it.
However, this wonderful discussion between Drs. Tenpenny and Pavlevsky made me realise that I have been on point with my own views.
In this video discussion, which I strongly urge you to listen to for a deep dive, they discuss how clinical diagnosis based on differential diagnosis has been turned into algorithmic medicine.
Traditionally, the most important information could be gleaned by interrogating the patient, followed by a physical examination and blood tests etc, would be ordered to confirm the diagnosis.
The most important part of this is differential diagnosis; similar symptoms can have different causes – it is important to distinguish between symptoms caused by a pulmonary condition or by a blood condition. This differentiation makes all the difference in the treatment method chosen and its likelihood of success.
Beginning in the 1990’s and the introduction of the dogma of “evidence-based” medicine the practice of clinical medicine began to decline to be replaced by algorithmic medicine based on protocols usually drawn up by health bureaucrats.
Tenpenny and Pavlevsky describe how the modern generation of doctors have been trained out of clinical diagnosis and are scarcely capable of reading medical research papers any more.
The problem with modern medicine is a failure to acknowledge other causes of disease, such as thought, diet and toxicity in the environment.
This has reached its apotheosis in the COVID era with health bureaucrats dictating to health professionals what treatment methods they can (and more importantly, can’t) use to treat covid-19.
They say that western medicine is in terminal decline and that this provides an opportunity for natural approaches to be utilised in the first instance instead of the other way round as it has been.
I have my own doubts about this.
I had an experience very recently where a visitor insisted on demonstrating his new computer-based system, based on biofeedback.
He gave me a set of headphones I was told light is emitted and all the body systems are scanned in a similar manner that I might use an app to scan for viruses on my computer.
The results came back that I had the “organs of a teenager” and there was nothing to treat – all while I was experiencing shortness of breath, tiredness and lightheadedness!
“The organs of a teenager!”
This is a dangerous development – a move away from forms of medicine predicated on the relationship between patient and therapist (here there was none) and even some form of channeling of energy through the therapist to the patient.
This was even worse (if that were possible) than a medical appointment! I have always operated under an assumption that it was a question of the modality – some were better than others, but I am starting to have doubts about this, along with the decline in quality of “natural medicine practitioners” – in hindsight, I think I started to see such a decline in quality of training while I was at Acupuncture School.
THE EXPERIENCE OF DR. SHANKARA CHETTY
Hearing the South African doctor, Shankara Chetty was a real revelation for me.
Here was a doctor who was able to use his logic and superior diagnostic skills to successfully treat over 7,000 patients from poor neighbourhoods without one death on his hands.
Basically, he saw that all the patients’ symptoms changed on the eighth day of the illness from a pulmonary illness to one that resembled an allergic illness.
He had the skills, as well as the right to make his own diagnosis whereby he successfully used cheaper steroids and anti-allergic medications like antihistamines to resolve the illness.
He was able to get interest in his protocol from doctors in the “Third World” – Malaysia, India and Sri Lanka.
The further he got to developed western medicine the more resistance to considering what was successful treatment.
I am absolutely convinced that if Dr. Chetty was in New Zealand he would have been banned by the Ministry of Health and the Medical Council from using “unconventional methods” and probably have faced disciplinary action.
Better to have sent a patient home and have them use paracetamol and wait for the condition to become untreatable, which takes us back to the shameful treatment meted out to 17-year-old Casey Hodgkinson! (sic).
