Medicine

  • Physical pain, long term illness, and spirit
  • Pixie is blind and almost deaf and partly lame. I found her half starved and dying outside my door one day three years ago. Now she is doing ... sort of okay. She is still health challenged. And despite being much recovered she is still very weak. Because she is blind she walks into things all the time, falls, and gets lost very easily. Because she is almost deaf she cannot use sound to help her n Read More...

  • » Endemic Iatrogenia and Medical Incompetence
  • Le Chatelier’s Principle indicates that any process tends to set up conditions opposing the further operation of that process [98]. This is in part due to entropic decay (i.e. because of the operation of physical laws and thermodynamics), and in part due to the very nature of complex systems. Where by complex systems I mean those systems which incorporate random, nonrandom, and chaotic recursive e Read More...

  • Do you have the right to die?
  • I find it absolutely chilling that anyone would presume to force a competent adult into living, when he or she chooses not to do so. The audacity to assume that society or law can ethically claim more power over a person’s life and body than the person herself, is anathema. To force someone to suffer who would prefer to stop suffering is what torturers do. Not a sane society. Mercifully and gently Read More...

  • Is Medical Force Justified?
  • There is a surprising lack of knowledge amongst the public concerning laws regarding their rights over their own person. Read More...

  • Is Chronic Pain Your Fault?
  • "Chronic pain isn’t just a symptom. It should be regarded as a disease in its own right and it is now time that training and resourcing for pain management services reflected this. ... Specialist pain services are either nonexistent or stretched to breaking point with general physicians receiving minimal training on pain in their whole career."
    ~ Professor Harald Breivik [1], president of the Euro Read More...

  • Is Experimenting on Humans Justified?
  • There is a long and loathsome history of medical experimentation on frequently unwilling people. Sometimes at the behest of government, sometimes under the false rubric of war necessity, sometimes in the thrall of fiscal inducement from pharmaceutical corporations, and sometimes purely out of maleficence guised as “research”. Sadly doctors have all to often been willingly complicit in Read More...

  • Is Neuroimaging Pseudo Science?

  • Psychiatric Medicine is a Fraud
  • “We need a program of psychosurgery and political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated. The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind Read More...

  • Is Clinical Psychology a Fraud?
  • Let us now turn to the third category - counselling psychology. Here we have more claims and theraputic approaches than there are grains of sand on all the beaches of all the planets all the galaxies in all the universe. All claimed to work, be “scientific”, and to be “valid theraputic approaches”. We have for example Imago therapy, EMDR, Jungian, Orgonomy, Orthodox Christi Read More...

  • Is Personality Testing a Fraud?
  • In the above drawing I have tried to reproduce the beauty of Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous painting of Squidward Tentacles. Leonardo’s painting is universally acknowledged as a work of genius. Yet this genius so well shown in Da Vinci’s painting, can only hint at the rich personality within the being that was Squidward Tentacles. Read More...

  • Psychopaths in power
  • Those who occupy executive offices have been shown by a number of large research studies (please see below for citations) to frequently posses most or all of the traits which diagnose them as functional psychopaths. A functional psychopath is a psychopath who is able to don the mask of normalcy in order to function in society. This is a problem when such people hold power, because as discussed bel Read More...

  • Are Pandemics Profitable?
  • In my article regarding fear induction as a means of social engineering, Fear induction is Social Engineering I referred to the use of propaganda and public relations techniques which have been developed to maintain a certain level of background fear in the citizenry as a whole. There I also discussed some of the tenets of social turbulence theory, and its applicability to acculturation Accultura Read More...

  • Hypersexualisation and Neurosexism
  • The term hypersexualisation refers to distinguishing between people and groups based solely upon gender. For example, the extreme use or portrayal sexual characteristics, overemphasis on gender, physical abuse due to gender, pseudo scientific biological and neurological claims regarding sexual differences, inequalities in salary due to gender, and so on ... all while downplaying of other human cha Read More...

  • Attacking the Disabled
  • Below is a picture of current U.S. head of state, the execrable Donald Trump. He was speaking at a rally loudly mocking a physically challenged man. Even going so far as to pantomime his disability. He was applauded and cheered by his audience [1, 2] Read More...

  • Is Poverty a Disease?
  • Aetiology is a complex subject. Yet there is one cause so obvious that it ought to be the first line of attack - poverty. Poverty has a direct relationship to disease. There are the clear examples of infectious disease such as malaria, tuberculosis, etc. which have been repeatedly shown to be linked to lack of clean water, sanitation, food, money, and access to medicines.

  • Is Traditional Chinese Medicine a Fraud? (Yes)
  • Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in its various forms and pharmaceutical sales is a $115,000,000,000 USD per annum business [1]. Yet despite many papers purporting to support various aspects of TCM, there is essential no proper scientific support for any of its methods, treatments, or claims. Its only replicable efficacy is the placebo effect. Read More...

  • Is Naturopathic Medicine a Fraud? (Yes)
  • In that article I discuss the unfortunate accreditation malaise infesting medicine in general. I point out that accreditation is not necessarily synonymous with competence, scientific understanding, scientific validity, or even the ability to improve a patient’s quality of life. Indeed, as I indicated therein with many citations, even scientifically based medical treatment all too often results in Read More...

  • Chiropractic Medicine - Fraudulent Quackery?
