What your MD doesn’t know matters.
If you’re no longer vibrantly healthy then your lifestyle has been limited in some or many ways. You’ve been to your doctor or many doctors and it hasn’t helped. In fact, maybe you got worse. If this is you or somone you love, you’re in a situation where what your MD doesn’t know, really matters. If you want to recover your health, you need to know what your MD doesn’t. That’s why you need a real guru, not just an average MD. And we’re going to going to hook you up, here at 9Gurus.
Statistically speaking, your average MD could be a threat to your health.
It may come as a surprise to you that MDs are the third leading cause of death in the USA. This is a well documented fact. How could it be? It’s a long story we could write a book about, but the essence of it is that the practice of medicine has been captured and corrupted by business and it doesn’t work in your favor! The medical profession today is virtually owned by the pharmaceutical industry. That’s very good for you if you’re a pharma stock holder or exec, but focusing your health care around pharmaceutical meds makes it easy for your MD to make a deadly mistake and virtually guarantees your MD will never help you find the root of your chronic illness.
American healthcare is broken.
If you’re still ill despite having seen many MDs and making efforts to fix your diet and lifestyle, it’s probably not your fault. Healthcare in the USA is a highly capitalistic function and is ruled by multibillion-dollar corporations and the American Medical Association which is a cartel controlling the business of doctoring.
What’s the outcome? We spend more in the US on healthcare than any other country (our prices are higher) but we get much less for our buck. What does that mean? Well, the US has poor population health in spite of outspending everyone on healthcare. The corporations and the AMA are in charge remember, and they are focused on building wealth, not health (and it goes without saying, it’s not your wealth). The money flows from you to the players in this corrupt system.
The system is ‘rigged’.
The problem goes beyond healthcare itself to science and government which have both been perverted by powerful business interests. Our government allows industry to expose you to toxic air and harmful radiation in your workplace and home, to chemicals in the tap water you drink and toxins in your food and consumer products you use. Your government has given business a license to ruin your health legally by citing ‘safe limits that protect human health’ that are often established with corrupt or nonexistent science. In other countries, they ban pesticides and food chemicals suspected of causing cancer and other health problems while in the US we deny or look the other way and dole out a prescription medication for every ailment. You and I suffer but investors make a killing. Pun intended.
Think about the implications of corrupt science.
If you ever read a scientific study published in a ‘prestigious’ journal and rely on it to make a healthcare decision for yourself or a family member, did you research its integrity? Or did you just assume that all science is honest? What do you think your MD does when she reads a journal article? If she’s busy like my MD, it’s a safe bet, all she did is skim the article!
What if there are big pharma connections at the board and ownership level of the journal that published the study? Would you want to know if the author of the study has made a career of doing research for corporations where the study conclusions are predetermined by the interests of the company?
At this point, I’m sure it won’t surprise you to know that conflicts of interest at the management level of scientific journals are common and that it is in fact easy for a scientist to make a career out of reporting the exact opposite of the truth in a ‘scientific’ study.
This is precisely how dangerous drugs, chemicals and technologies achieve widespread adoption for decades before we suddenly discover they cause cancer and other debilitating diseases. By the time the sh@t hits the fan, the guilty politicians and scientists have retired and the corporate execs sailed off into the sunset on their super yachts.
Before healthcare became a blockbuster business, MDs knew how to treat many illnesses effectively and inexpensively.
Those days are gone. Today it’s all about blood testing to find the right pharmaceutical drug for you. Doctors no longer know how to use inexpensive remedies like iodine, vitamin C, light and microcurrent to cure many common health problems. The reliance on pharmaceuticals is not just expensive, it’s deadly.
Consider JAMA’s analysis of medical error deaths from the year 2000:
- 12,000 — unnecessary surgery
- 7,000 — medication errors in hospitals
- 20,000 — other errors in hospitals
- 80,000 — infections in hospitals
- 106,000 — non-error, negative effects of drugs
These total to 225,000 deaths per year from iatrogenic (doctor induced) causes!! Accidental deaths per physician – 0.321. Statistics courtesy of the journal of the organization (AMA) that has made drug based medicine the paradigm of this era. (Journal American Medical Association July 26, 2000;284(4):483-5)
Now consider guns (statistics courtesy of FBI):
- The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.
(Yes, that’s 80 million)
- The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500.
- The number of accidental deaths per gun owner then is .0000188
A little math shows your risk of “accidental” death at the hands of your conventional doctor is approximately 17,074 times higher than your risk of accidental firearm death. Yes, SEVENTEEN THOUSAND TIMES HIGHER! Thanks to Dr. Robert Rowan for this lesson.
This story is not about gun control though, it’s about understanding that what your doctor doesn’t know is really critical because it can kill you and it’s statistically likely to kill you.
So what is a guru?
Well, first, a guru is somebody who cares deeply about healing and much less about becoming wealthy. Second, a guru is somebody with deep experience who’s committed to sharing their knowledge. Often gurus write books and maintain websites where they share best practices and they always stay up to date in their field, which by definition means they are open-minded and understand the limits of their own knowledge and experience.
A guru would never belittle you for doing your own health research or advise you not to read anything on the Internet.
Yes, a guru can be an MD and many are. They typically understand the political and cartel nature of our medical system and won’t defend it.
Many health gurus were chronically ill themselves and were forced to discover new ways of healing.
Imagine having a guru looking after your health.
Gurus look for the origins and causes of your illness. The average MD will just try to medicate away your symptoms and consider your case solved even when the meds cause other problems for you and limit your life further.
Finding the true cause of an illness often allows you to recover fully and deeply, allowing you to live without limits once again.
Imagine having many gurus looking after you.
Officially we’re 9 Gurus, but in reality there are many more gurus on our team than nine. The world is blessed with a great many true health gurus and our mission is to bring their wisdom into your life. You couldn’t possibly follow every guru nor would you want to. Connecting you with the right ones for your unique health issues, that’s our mission and what we do. So, give us a try!
