Why I’ve Become the Debbie Downer of Modern Medicine

I too feel like I’m a Debbie Downer of modern medicine. I’m sure that many people are sick of hearing about fluoroquinolone toxicity and other adverse drug reactions, but until real and significant change happens, and people stop being disabled by these drugs, I will keep screaming.

This is a wonderful post from The Holistic Health Nurse.

The Holistic Health Nurse

I recently had a text message exchange with a couple of my like-minded friends in which I had to write something to the effect of “Sorry to be all Doomsday again, but..” regarding a pharmaceutical product of some kind that one of them had mentioned. A theme has also emerged on my personal Facebook page and this blog’s page: frequent PSAs about the potential dangers of various pharmaceutical products and medical procedures. I actually have to limit myself from sharing all of the information of this type that I come across on a daily basis to avoid emitting a constant stream of posts that fill up everyone’s newsfeeds.

So, I have basically become the Debbie Downer of modern medicine.

Birth control pills? “Great, unless you want a libido or to avoid depression.”

PPI acid-reducers? “Work well except for the kidney disease and dementia.”

Fluoroquinolone antibiotics? “Very effective at…

    Glad your eyes are finally opening on this, Lisa 🙂

    I didn’t read the post but for just one small example, she missed one of the biggest points on the PPI’s, which is often a shared one across the spectrum, they treat SYMPTOMS only, and not the root cause. Not only that, but they do it in an ASS-BACKWARDS fashion, 85% or so of the people who have heartburn, reflux etc have it because they have LOW acid, not high, and here they are giving you a drug to shut your acid and down MAKING THE PROBLEM WORSE. And they are NOT stupid, they (BP) know EXACTLY what they are doing, and again, this is one small example but a common theme in “Rockefeller Medicine”.

    I’m literally the Debbie downer of modern medicine lol , only I prefer to call it what it is … poisoning.

    ALL allopathic drugs are poisons, they ALL carry risks, they ALL have direct effects on the human body ( NOT ‘ side effects ‘ ) which is just Big Pharmas way of trying to cloud the issue, these effects many are expected & just a further extension of the drugs action.
    Until people realise that a lot of these effects are NOT there by accident but instead by design, & until people also understand that every time they take a prescription allopathic drug ( not just FQs ) at the times when they can seek an alternative natural route for the problem they have instead, that by doing so that they are literally playing Russian roulette with their health, their lives, & they also realise that preventative care, i.e. the regular scans of varies kinds, the yearly health checks etc are rolled out & are in place to collect more customers i.e. because the numbers are just a bit ‘ off ‘ on the day perhaps, & / or they are in place to provide Big Pharmas customers for the future often via the carcinogenic route i.e.via mammograms, etc not forgetting of course the vaccines , the true risks they are taking re interacting with modern ‘ medicine ‘ will never be realised.
    in the meantime it’s just business as usual, Big Pharma keeps on laughing all the way to the bank, the long term agenda, that just keeps on trucking … meanwhile we wait in a tidy queue for our ‘ pills for all ills ‘, and onwards we all march to Pharmageddon … & beyond .

    For those who still turn to the allopathic drugs, particularly in the first instance when an effective natural alternative for the problem you have IS actually available, please please understand this :

    BIG PHARMA IS NOT YOUR FRIEND ! … PERIOD !!. . … They ARE drug dealers.
    As such , they make their money on repeat business, on the comeback.

    Regarding that queue I mention above … Just how many will you watch go over that cliff in front of you, before YOU will step out of line ?

      Hi Debs,

      You wisely said this in The Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Group. I wanted to post it here so that others could see it and so I can keep it and refer to it. If you want me to take it down, please just let me know.

      “I am yet another one who did absolutely nothing the first time I was seriously floxed as I did not know what had happened Despite changing nothing I eventually felt completely recovered from that floxing, & also eventually reached what i felt was around 80 % recovery in another floxing in exactly the same situation. I have actually never used any complicated / specific supplementary/ dietary protocol . All I have ever done is to really clean up my diet & avoided as many sources of chemical contamination as humanely possible, including avoiding allopathic drugs as much as possible by getting myself off any I could, & instead finding natural replacements for those conditions I have no choice but to take at least something for. The only one I have not managed to sort yet due to the complexity of my pain is my pain relief. for my glaucoma there is no natural treatment. in my experience of being around a long while it is time which is the biggest factor in showing how severely a person has been injured, & also how much they will improve / potentially might eventually reach a place where they may feel recovered . A very clean diet & avoiding as many chemicals as I can is is in my opinion & experience the next biggest things which help a LOT. Avoiding all allopathic drugs as much as i can is just logical to me, drug action always represents artificial interference with the natural functioning of the human body, an organism in the widest sense of the word. Every allopathic drug is of course by definition a poison. I have already been poisoned, therefore why on earth would I want to add more poison to my poor already poisoned toxic body & mind if I can manage to avoid this. Allopathic Drugs originated from nature, from the natural world & there are many natural effective alternatives to many of those allopathic drugs which can be tried for various conditions. I got myself off three allopathic drugs in this way.”

      I think that there is a lot of wisdom in the “avoid toxins and do nothing” approach. Thank you for mentioning it!

    I’ve been seriously and permanently harmed by medical doctors and pharmaceuticals too many times in my life. I often joke that I have PTSD from medical care but in reality, I do!!

    Medicine today is so dangerous and bad for our health that the President had to legislate to force Americans to buy health insurance despite us having extremely poor outcomes.
    I don’t have a doctor who accepts health insurance and frankly, don’t want one who does because I need a doctor who has the freedom to treat patients as individuals with unique needs. The fact is that any doctor beholden to the constraints of insurance companies cannot work in the best interest of their patient and hence, is only working in the best interest of the insurance company. We should all be outraged that we were forced to purchase insurance in a for-profit medical system.
