Urgent Medical Matters
Book 2. Is there Disease?
The medical industry does not define health and disease. Rather they divide medical conditions into two broad categories, calling them mental and physical disease. They then go on to define individual diseases in terms of signs and symptoms. The division into mental and physical disease has no real basis. Where you are going to classify a disease depends on the symptoms you choose to emphasize. In both cases there are physical and mental signs and symptoms and indeed there is a continuum for the latter one is only a precursor and foundation of the other. In classifying a disease as mental the “mental aspects” are considered to be the primary signs and symptoms. For instance in panic disorder (PD), two types of symptoms are considered. These are repeated sudden attacks of panic and the person’s persistent concern or worry about panic attacks and their consequences; that is their concern for having a heart attack or going crazy. The second symptoms have to do with what psychiatrists identify as “maladaptive changes in behaviour” relating to panic attacks as for instance avoiding certain situations or places. The third, the sign is pure conjecture -plucked out of the air. It is the supposition that the person has chemical imbalances in their brain. This is unproven and even unprovable because it is impossible, as I will explain later. There is no balanced state from which we can call imbalances. The brain’s activity is in constant flux and depends on the emotional reactivity to life. And yet this conjecture has been successfully marketed to the public as solid science! These three, the sign and symptoms are taken as the classifying markers. The accompanying physical symptoms are treated as coincidental.. “by the way the patient also has rapid heartbeat, perspiration, dizziness, dyspnea, trembling, chest pains, bla, bla, bla!” This is denying their significance, when they know very well that without treating these symptoms the person’s medical condition cannot be treated.
To classify a medical condition as a physical disease on the other hand they consider the physical signs and symptoms as primary. Thus chest pain, a blockage in the coronary artery or damage to heart muscle are treated as the classifying markers and other symptoms such as fear and anxiety etc., are treated as coincidental or even consequential. The arguments being: “the poor guy had a heart attack and of course he’s going to be anxious and fearful”. But the guy who’s heart is still healthy and functional and who hasn’t reach the damage stage.. yet, well he just imagining things.. paranoid.. a crazy! Yes, the naming of people as crazy and lunatic is not politically correct but there is still this idea entrenched in the public psyche and that idea has been and is continually being created by the medical picture that is being held up by doctors and marketed to the public. And it is not without purpose. The mental conditions point to eventual physical conditions. This is not missed by the person who suffers a panic attack. They do have a concern that they may suffer or be suffering a heart attack. However if they can be written off as not knowing what they are about or as “the disease talking”, then the truth can be, and is at present, being well concealed. Who’s going to listen to a crazy! Discrediting the person with the “mental disorder” is a very skilful means of erasing the connection between the mind and the body, so the development of disease is ensured. Profits are ensured.
Mental conditions such as panic and/or anxiety attacks are part of the cheating gameplay politics of toxic people. The conditions created may be a one off affair or over a period of time or used on a long term basis and it does not always lead to heart damage or death. And here too it is important to spell out that smoking, drinking, eating fatty food and not taking enough exercise are are not the person’s “lifestyle choices” but coping mechanism. These are ways by which a person copes or self-medicates in order to cope with their circumstances. These are just as valid a means of medication as drugs. The only difference is that the side effects in the case of coping habits are called “risk factors” by the medicos. But the drugs that they prescribe are only a different means of coping or to put it in medical terms, to “manage the disease”. They are not cures. And drugs or “medically prescribed lifestyle choices” have side effects too and sometimes deadly ones but they don’t like to call them “risk factors”.
True it is that a person who eats fatty, greasy foods may have a greater propensity to develop heart disease BUT it is not due to the foods that they eat! The heart disease develops due to maltreatment by toxic others in their lives and the cheating games that are played for the sake of power and influence. The outcome of eating a lot of fat may lead to obesity and that means the heart has a harder job to do. It is this that can contribute to the over all problem that leads to heart disease but it is not a cause. There are plenty of people who are obese and who don’t develop heart disease. That is because the cheats are different. Different cheats lead to obesity than lead to heart disease. Being obese and having heart disease only means that both sorts of cheats have been used. The medical picture is far more complex than is being presented to the public. There are no crazies on the one side, who are worried that the panic attack is a heart attack or may lead to a heart attack and there are no people on the other, who “just have a heart problem” and oh coincidentally they happen to be anxious or suffered a panic attack(s).
The big problem with defining health and disease is the dividing line. But is there really a line between them? Everyone can get panicked sometimes and everyone experiences anxiety sometime. The real question is why? The medical position that says “some anxiety and some panic is part of life and healthy” denies the reality of the person’s life. Yes, we can point to some situations of panic and anxiety, as for instance people in the midst of an earthquake. But these situations are rare compared to the anxiety and panic that is pointed at and called “of everyday life”. This panic and anxiety, which has to do with spouses and siblings and bosses etc., this is a whole different kettle of fish. Furthermore when a person feels fear, panic or anxiety, which is “without apparent cause” or which the medicos consider is “unreasonable fear”, then the person’s problem is considered unhealthy and a disease. And of course the person has been blind-sided by misleading medical information. The medical message is that “all ideas and thoughts are manufactured by your brain” thus they say it’s all in your head. There is an agenda here and that is to avoid the big picture, which would empower people and give them the knowledge to help themselves. Doctors do not consider people as a part of a fabric of relationships. They don’t consider the games that are played for the sake of power and influence etc., in making a diagnosis. They take the position of we can only examine and diagnose for the individual because we can only treat the individual.. “the patient” in their eyes. The fact is that there are others involved so this type of diagnosis looks at the person’s situation out of context. Of course they will treat the patient but they need to see the big picture. We are not machines and we don’t “just malfunction” and we don’t live in isolation normally.
The big picture can be cut out conveniently with a little pair of scissors by cutting away everything that is no physical. This enables them to consider all human capabilities as merely generated by the brain and hence “only stuff in your personal little black box”. The psychiatric profession is heavily involved with neuroscience and neuroscientists of course are funded by the medical industry in the main. Not surprising then that there is an army of neuroscientists as well as doctors claiming that consciousness is generated by the brain, an evolutionary oddity! And these are not without backing from other areas using similar reasoning. In philosophical studies we find arguments that say “I know that I am conscious but there is no means by which I can tell if you’re conscious or not, indeed I don’t have the means to say if your are even real or not”. And these arguments also relay on the most common opinion of physics. Many physicists see the universe as clockwork so every is determined. When these arguments are carried further they can be used to deny mental capacities, such as ESP and other areas such as free will and meaning. When the experiments are done properly we can show that we interrelate on mental levels as well as physical levels; And that the mental interaction is astounding and far more than we have ever believed or imagined. We can also see how experiments can be tampered with and made to give no results or desired results.
In human beings many different emotional states are constantly coming into being and dissipating again. And while the sensory information that we gain about the world around us give rise to a great deal of emotional reactivity it is by no means the only avenue. These emotional states may be ignited by interaction through relationship. It is easy to see this reactivity through our physical interactions with others in our lives. However the same reactivity arises in the body through our mental interactions and one may say even more dramatically. It is only when our mental capacities are stripped away and we are considered as machines, like cars in traffic or robots on a production line, that a case can be made for an emotion such as fear to be considered a malfunction and unhealthy. One of the most powerful means to destroy our status as human beings and to reduce us (and all other living things as well) to automatons is to deny our mental capabilities and hence our mental interactions. The “machines that just malfunction” can then be used to make a case for mental illness first and thus convince people of physical illness. It is all an illusion.
To begin our discovery we may ask “is there any such thing as mental illness?” We see people who are troubled. We see people who are distressed and disturbed but are they ill? Every decade since the 1960s psychiatrist have chalked up more and more so-called psychiatric or mental illnesses and they have done so without any theory of mind, without any yardstick, without medical tests and without any scientific basis. No scientific experiments take place, only doctors sitting in conference deciding to call what they fancy a mental illness and dream up a name for it. And having done that conjecture what changes there must be in the brain and how to fix them, mainly with drugs. This is then sold to the public as science under the banner of pharmacology and the authenticity of the drug trials as superior science and better than traditional therapies such as acupuncture. Clearly the whole of psychiatry is a fraud and politically motivated. There are many internet sites, and among them human rights groups, that condemn the practice of psychiatry and yet it makes no difference. People seem to be apathetic, why?
I can see that the answer to that question is threefold.
1. People have been made afraid of mental illness. A lot of criminal behaviour, in various aspects of the media and films, is attributed to mental illness. For instance conditions such as schizophrenia have had a great deal of bad press so that most people believe that a person suffering this condition would definitely be violent. This gains public approval to incarcerate and treat these people even against their will. They are denied their human rights when in reality they are victims of serious maltreatment.
Far removed from people with schizophrenia, there are people who are serious criminals and toxic/ evil people. These people are being defended by psychiatrists by claiming them to be mentally ill or in having a behavioural disorder. On one side of the scale are people they call psychopath and sociopaths, while on the other they name them as narcissists. Indeed the ones that are obvious criminals and in jail for serious murders or serial murders are less violent than the ones that look credible and only have a label. You only need to understand how diseases such as heart disease, strokes and cancer come about to appreciate the severity of these people’s crimes and the massacre that is going on and getting worse every year. Thus people that are the victims, that we can call disturbed and troubled are grouped together with serious criminals and painted up with the same brush. It is understandable for people to be afraid but only while they are ignorant of the truth.
2. People who are suffering severe distress are desperate for answers. They desperately need some solution to their problems. Not understanding what they are up against they are willing to take drugs, even dangerous drugs or undergo other treatments in an effort to overcome their problems. Again these people are desperate only because they are ignorant of the truth and ignorant of how much power they really yield when they understand their mental capacities to the full.
3. People do not understand how strangers with mental illness can affect them, if they have no mental illness themselves and they don’t know those that are sick. The reason is of course because they don’t realize that all disease is but one continuum. They don’t see how their heart disease etc., is the result of maltreatment and not different in kind at the fundamental level. The only real difference is that their maltreatment has less obvious mental signs and symptoms or ones which seem reasonable given their circumstances. They don’t realize that the mental signs and symptoms are causative of the physical ones. The strangers with so-called mental illness are pointers to the overall problem of disease.
All of these matters, the belief in and fear of mental illness, the troubled and disturbed person in need of solutions, as also the average citizen from whom it all seems far away, can be properly addressed and resolved by knowledge of the big picture and not just the medical picture. In my previous book on the basic cheats I have sketched out in broad strokes how a person can be distressed enough to suffer anxiety or panic. We can see how a person can be deceived in making the decisions or accepting a thought as a belief or even believing that they have fallen in love. Both panic attacks and anxiety, when suffered over a long period of time are considered to be mental illness. However these are still quite simple compared to OCD or PTSD or bipolar disorder and most profoundly schizophrenia. Gaining some idea of how a person can be distressed and by whom, sheds a great deal of light on the big picture. This is a necessary first step, not only to understand that there is no mental illness, but more so to understand the broader picture, that of physical disease and beyond. If we are to restore democracy and our rights as free citizen, if we are to restore true community and if we are to live in an environment in which we can reach our full potential then the big picture needs to be seen and addressed. I am not alone in my concerns nor are these matters new. An American doctor, Dr. Benjamin Rush and a signer of the Declaration of American Independence had said
“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an underground dictatorship… To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic and have no place in a republic.. The Constitution of this republic should make special privilege for medical freedom as well as religious freedom”
This man had a lot of foresight however he still falls short of the reality we face in the world today. And the reason is because it is not just medical science on their own that is involved. If this was so there is not enough in place to enure that diseases are generated and spiral out of control as we have seen in the past century and see continuing with many grim predictions for the future. There is another part to the problem that is grim and the very pit of evil. This is the toxic under-culture.
It is the toxic under-culture that fuels disease and thus helps guarantee for the medical industry their profits. Cheats and the ways in which they are conducted cause unsuspecting people to react. Those reactions are both mental and physical because ideas that are upheld with confidence act as directives to the body, as for example the idea of danger will immediately put the body into high energy production and shut down any system that is not essential for fight or flight. This is natural. However in cheats the issues created are unnatural and orchestrated through toxic relationships. Those issues then give rise to somatic consequences that we see as medical conditions. They may range from mild to moderate to severe depending on the cheats and how the unsuspecting person reacts and to what extent. The medical conditions that arise naturally affect the individual concerned and through this affect toxic people seek to gain power and influence over the people they cheat. Their motives vary but the main ones are to be able to manipulate and control the other person or to punish them for some reason, especially in conditioning them to their liking or to take revenge. Causing an unsuspecting person to react as to develop medical conditions causes the victim much suffering. Those that cheat, the toxic mob in other words, can see and/or sense the person’s suffering just as the victim senses the danger that is posed. Feeling the suffering of the person they torture brings the toxic (evil) people pleasure. This is the unspoken reason for much of the suffering they cause, whether or not there are other motives as well.
Thus we could say that the medical industry, from Big Pharma and the associated laboratories to the medical scientists and doctors, are the false prophets for the medical misinformation that they feed an unsuspecting and “desperate for answers” public. They are primarily driven by greed. However the toxic under-culture, which is highly organized and networked internationally as well as nationally in every country in the world, are pure evil. They are at the very heart of the problem. The two though need each other. The toxic people cannot commit the crimes that they commit without unsuspecting and ill-informed people on the one hand, and “the laundry service” that cleans the crimes and repackages them respectfully as disease on the other. So the medical industry both blind-sides people so as to walk into the traps and then cleanses the crimes by naming the medical conditions a disease. So diseases proliferate both as a source of great wealth and for the darkest of dark purposes. We are seeing in the world today, in every single country without exception, the growth of an under-culture that would leave the Nazis and Pol Pot and all tyrants throughout history all rolled into one looking lame and tame by comparison. Unfortunately greed is the order of the day, so much so that it would be their worse nightmare if there was an epidemic of good health. But I am not talking about an epidemic of good health; I am taking about the end of disease and most certainly the 95% of it, if not all of it. And it only takes a well-informed humane public to overcome disease. A humane person can, by their own efforts make themselves well.. easily, and not even get sick in the first place when they understand what they are up against! Good-bye cancer, diabetes, heart disease etc., etc., etc., all the way down to allergies and obesity. The bubble bursts! Furthermore humane people can stand against the evil and yield absolute power when they use the power of The Mind. And they have everything to gain and nothing to lose in associating and standing up for Justice.
The first step then is to examine mental illness and question the legitimacy of psychiatry. This profession has been named fraudulent and quasi-scientific and more by very many different people and groups of people, including human rights groups on the net and also by some doctors. When we understand how a person can be troubled through the different ways by which they can be cheated, then we begin to appreciate that there is no mental illness. We effectively “take the queen off the board” so to speak because we also appreciate that there is neither legitimate profession nor science that we can call psychiatry. We appreciate that the true nature of our emotional reactivity, with rare exceptions, is always transitory, and that when it becomes long lasting there is something amiss. It is a sign of trouble. In doing this we discredit the division of disease into mental and physical and that then naturally leads us to an understanding of what is health and what is disease.
