Man is a group animal, and his faiths are created by his associations. Nevertheless
man is capable of logic and
coming to sound reasoned conclusions. What
follows below are summations based upon longer papers which arrive at reasoned conclusions
contrary to pharma generated medical opinions. The first premise in this process
understand in detail the fact that pharma controls the practice of medicine,
and that corporate ethics always compromises the public’s well-being—see bottom
section. We have expert-based medicine
with pharma providing the experts. Thus
what follows though well supported by journal articles; is not taught by the
experts nor covered in the corporate media. In addition to a healthful lifestyle,
drugs make a major difference.

recommendation: how to reducing the probability of health destroying illnesses
each year by 2/3rd. This translates adding on an average for males
15 & for females 10 years past the average age of death
(75 males, 80 females) for those who follow the recommendations by the age of 30. For explanations for these choices click on the links (this includes rebuttals
of pharma’s deceptions). Medications: Start Q10
at the age of 30, 100-150 mg, increase to 150-200 mg at the age of 45, and 300 mg age 60; and for Vitamin C (ascorbate) ½
gm, increase to 1 gm, and then 1.5 gm at the age of 60. Q10 is a fat soluble antioxidant, and ascorbate water soluble. They have been shown totally safe. Start aspirin
at the age of 25 with 325 mg, and if diagnosed with cancer
or cardiovascular disease
increase dose according to previous links. At menopause, take natural hormones;
and for men, take testosterone, start between age of 60 & 70--when serum level drops below 450 ng/dL (the
level of an 80-year old in 1984). Natural HRT, estrogen with progesterone, in effective capsule dose is available only
from a compounding pharmacy (2 mg estradiol plus 100 mg of progesterone micronized in oil).
Testosterone in sufficient dose is available also only from a compounding pharmacy as a lotion, ½ teaspoon 10%, or
15% past the age of 70. Dilute with 50 gm. of water and apply over upper torso
for maximum absorption. Testosterone offers significant benefit when the serum
testosterone level drops below 450 ng/dL (the level of an 80 year old in 1984—the average level of testosterone has
steadily declined since 1910). The journal articles (mainly before the year 1999) in support of these medications make a very
convincing case for the use estradiol
and testosterone. Pharma of course does junk science to counter their usage. This junk science is fed doctors in the required continuing education classes which pharma gives taught
by pharma’s key opinion leaders. The information base of medicine
is broken. Understanding this state of medicine reduces the risk of following the advice of well-meaning physicians. Lifestyle in order of importance: avoid tobacco smoke and other sources of incomplete combustion. The Western diet with it high sugar and polyunsaturated fats has brought on the obesity and cardiovascular
disease epidemic. The increase in the consumption of sugar is the cause for the
rise in obesity, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease. It starts with
fructose damaging the liver in the same way that alcohol; both are metabolized in the liver and can cause fatty liver disease. Dietary saturated fats are the best source for energy
(ATP). Watch the video links
on the effects of our Western diet. Frequent strenuous work or exercise promotes
vascular health. A growing body of evidence indicates that some genetically modified
foods (GMOs) have dire health consequences, such as corn, canola, and soy which has a gene in it that causes the production
of a pesticide, and probably also the Roundup resistant crops. Finally, avoid drugs and surgical interventions unless the
condition is quite serious and the evidence is clear and convincing—see evidence based list on bad choices. Pharma uses corporate tobacco ethics to maximize profits; drugs are market
like tobacco. Perverse incentives produce perverse results. Watch Harvard Prof. Marcia Angell provide the proof.
all NSAID uses. For minor pain & anti-inflammatory 975
mg (the older standard was
two 500 mg and then 1 500 mg as needed), than as needed to 3 gm daily. Don’t
start with enteric coated because of delayed action. For arthritis, 2.5 to grams per day; for protection from cancer 325 mg; for cancer treatment
1,300 mg daily. For heart burn Tums is the best; protein pump (PPI) inhibitors
the worst choice. Avoid
pharma’s anticoagulants, 975 mg aspirin daily, better choice. Atherosclerosis causes coronary heart disease. No need for
niacin or statins because of the cholesterol myth, and watch documentary. Inositol & Niacin for
best choices, which includes 325mg aspirin twice daily. Avoid pharma’s
statins and hypertension drugs
Read healthfully on aspirin for cancer, and CVD. From
92 to 97 JK was prescribed 2.5 grams for chronic back pain, which was fixed by 15 minutes daily abdomen routine. Thereafter 325 mgs for risk reduction. And JK doesn’t
get heart burn. Aspirin cancer chemotherapy, take 4 or more a day.
OTHER NSAIDs: All NSAIDs (Advil, Aleve, others) with long-term usage they
greatly increases risk of MI &CVD--American Heart association warning also in journal sources by causing CVD through inhibition of COX-2, which causes plaque formation. The selective COX-2 inhibitors NSAIDs are
the worse. They killed over
100,000 Americans. Vioxx & Bextra were withdrawn
after the information they sat on became public. But the FDA allows Celebrex, though Europe and Canada ban it.
Q10: The evidence clearly supports the use of Q10 based on animal studies. Based
on clinical studies 100 mgs is sufficient; but given the lack of side effects more should be taken. At
Costco a year’s supply is under $70. Peak blood level is
in 2-6 hours, and second peak at about 24 hours; half-life is 33 hours. Does not interact with other drugs or have side effects, and has been shown
at 2,400 mgs. “The use of the aqueous suspension of CoQ10
has only a minor effect” because of low absorption. To
get round this Q10 is micronized and dissolved in oil; therefore avoid the aqueous form. The synthesis of an intermediary precursor of coenzyme Q10, mevalonate,
is inhibited by some beta
blockers (blood pressure-lowering medication) statins
(by 40%), and
other drugs. Large dose of vitamin e partial inhibits the anti-oxidative effect of Q10. There is extensive positive short-term research on Q10, but no long-term population studies. However, given its role as a ubiquitous antioxidant, benefits are likely, especially
in the mitochondria. For this reason it should be taken long-term starting by the age of 20 so as slow the rate of oxidative
damage to the mitochondria. Even though the decline in ATP due to damage won’t
be noticed until the 5th decade, when endurance dramatically declines, such damage cannot be reversed since some
of it affects the mitochondrial genes. (Note:
is the molecule that drives 95% of the chemical reactions inside cells throughout the body, including the one used by muscles
for contraction.) Q10 also protects other tissues, such as nerves from oxidative
damage, thereby reducing the risks for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
Many of the chronic conditions of old age are a result of accumulated oxidative damage such as macular degeneration. Q10’s usage is far greater in Japan and Europe.
Testosterone (TTT): RECOMMENDATIONS: Since 2003 I
have used TTT 1/2 tsp 100 mg/gm from a compounding pharmacy--increased to 150mg/gm when he reached 68 years—necessitated
by the lower bioactivity as TTT receptors age, and SHBG drops. I take over three
times the dose available in patented formulas high dose Androgel. Apply widely as possible over the torso, back, shoulders,
underarms, and face using water and rubbing it in to promote better absorption. With higher dose leg cramping vanished,
joint are excellent, and skin has become much tougher on forearms. Cognitive benefits, increased energy,
feeling well, and looking younger all have sexual/romantic benefits. TTT lowers
the risk of heart failure, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, osteoporosis, prostate cancer, and depression, increases survival
of heart attacks, muscle strength, and sexual drive. Given TTT’s many health
benefits, which affects pharma’s bottom line, most doctors are skeptical of its benefits and thus reluctant to prescribe
TTT, which pharma teaches has taught them that TTT increases the risk for heart attacks and prostate cancer--based on their
junk journal articles. Some doctors make a career out of hormone
balancing. Recommended lotion of 100 mg/gm/1/4th tsp at age 65, increased
to 150/gm at 70 in lotion from compounding pharmacy. Goal is to raise the level
to the high end of a 20-year old—800 to 1,000 ng/dL. TTT is not orally active, but about 1/10th is absorbed through the skin.
Vitamin C, Ascorbic acid, Ascorbate: Based upon this review of
the literature, a general knowledge of cell biology, pathology, & the natural high levels of vitamin C found in various
tissues for protection from oxidative damage, its low cost, and the lack of side effects; for all these reasons, I recommend 500 mg per day starting in the 2nd decade and being increased to 1 g in the 5th,
and 1.5 grams in the 7th. FORM
of ascorbate: I prefer
vitamin C in the form of calcium ascorbate; calcium over sodium, because it is a source of calcium, which for those who consume
little dairy a calcium supplement is advisable, and it won’t lower the blood PH to acidic. I mix a portion of the powder into tea or juices. Another
choice which I also use is the pleasant-tasting chewable sodium ascorbate 500 mg which is sweetened with sorbitol; available
from Costco. Because it is used as an antioxidant--not vitamin function--the
addition of bioflavonoids is not beneficial to the consumer. The record of research
on bioflavonoids is polluted with marketing studies to show benefits. The converse is that the studies by pharma and governments
are designed to show that vitamin C offers no benefits. Business is a corrupt
master of science. Cheaper is better because, price matters to most people. Over the internet I purchased 5 kg of calcium ascorbate and I take 2 gm daily.
Diet: Avoid sugars, limit refined carbs. This
table promotes health & sets the controls of fat storage to weight loss
protein mix, fish, nuts, cheeses, cottage cheese, plain yogurt, vegetables, yams, eggs, some whole grain products, beans, and whole or 2% milk, Karo corn syrup (pure glucose).
& other white flour products, whole wheat bread, white rice, and carbohydrates in general.
Meats & poultry unless free range, bananas, grapes, raisins, dates.
added foods, cold breakfast cereals (but Cheerios & Shredded wheat), instant hot cereal, large portions of carbs
and fruits, fruit juices, corn, rice, white flour, and potatoes.
Vinegar, fiber, protein, and fat, animal fats, lard, & butter are best, followed by palm kernel, coconut, and
Fried foods (unless in saturated fat), large meals, and highly processed foods.
meats unless cooked, corn, most crackers, restaurant deep fried foods, soy products, vegetable oils, and all GMOs.
1) Healthy diet: The goal
is to keep serum insulin low, thus avoid added sugar, easily digestible starches, and vegetable oils, in that order of importance. Small meals and increasing fiber, fats, and proteins along with increased physical
excursion all lower insulin. Low insulin entails low serum sugar, which lowers
the rate of glycation that damages
proteins. 2) Weight loss diet of less than 15%: in addition
to the above, go on a very low carbs diet and stay on it until desired weight is obtained, then follow the healthy diet. This diet will allow the body to cure NAFLD,
IR,T2D and MeS (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes. and metabolic syndrome). 3) T2D diet for those on one drug: follow weight loss diet, and monitor
your plasma glucose so as to reduce dependence on your drug. If after 6 month
this hasn’t cured T2D add alternate-day fasting. Watch Dr. Janson Fung
explain the issues on insulin and
diabetes and alternate day fasting
diet. Fasting diet cures T2D; it does for 90% of those who have bariatric surgery: they fast
the first 2 weeks and then eat small low-carb meals. Most are cured of T2D in the first week. 4) Severe T2D and obesity:
Follow as low insulin diet and alternate-day fasting. T2D is a progressive disease that starts
with insulin resistance, then drugs to lower glucose, then progress to more drugs, and insulin injections. The drugs pharma offers do not stop weight gain or the progression of T2D,
which shortens life an average of 7 years. Short version, long version.
(Natural Estrogen) with progesterone, HRT: What every woman should be taking because of the numerous, major health benefits,
benefits that would slash pharma’s profits. Of the 4 natural estrogens
only estradiol (E2) has major benefits. Two--estriol (E3) and estetrol (E4)--are found in pregnant women and block estradiol. Big pharma being against
hormone replacement therapy (HRT) markets ineffective products including those containing estriol and estetrol, estradiol
at too low a dose, and Prempro. Based on marketing (tobacco) science, including
a major study by the FDA which used Prempro, a combination of estrogen derived from pregnant mare’s urine and the progestin
MPA. The biological effects of mare’s estrogens are different than human
estrogen and MPA blocks most of the positive effects of estrogen. Using tobacco
science, the FDA warns that HRT (hormone replacement therapy) has only one valid medical use, to manage hot flashes, and it
should be used at the lowest dose for the shortest time. But the finding for
Prempro cannot be validly generalized to the natural estradiol and progesterone—though pharma and the FDA do. Thus marketing science overturned 4 decades of positive results that show significant health benefits for
HRT: Alzheimer’s 83%, Heart attacks 51%, Coronary Heart Disease 50%, Colorectal Cancer 46%, Breast Cancer
73%, Thrombosis 8%, Osteoporosis Fractures 90%, Macular Degeneration 65%, reduces & prevents arthritic join destruction,
firmer breasts, healthier skin (less wrinkles, thicker, 48% more collagen), reduces hair loss, improved
cognitive function, less depression and mental illness, and a general feeling of well-being with increased libido.
is the only effective treatment to prevent osteoporosis, and its methods of cardiovascular protection are well documented. The lack of estradiol is the reason for the
precipitous decline in health of women after menopause. Life extension with
long-term natural HRT is over 4 years. Because of a modest increase
in uterine cancer a progestin (synthetic hormone with some progesterone properties that is orally active) is added to hormone
replacement therapy rather than the natural progesterone which wasn’t orally active.
Progesterone--the major natural occurring progestogen--has numerous benefits, while some of the artificial progestins
are clearly harmful, and none have been adequately researched as to side effects. Thus
like with testosterone which isn’t orally active, the best method of application is a lotion obtained from a compounding
pharmacy in a dose of 4 mgs estradiol plus 100 mg of progesterone per application. Apply
widely as possible over the torso, back, shoulders, underarms, and face using
water and rubbing it in to promote better absorption, which otherwise would be only 10%. Recently progesterone has been micronized in oil (like CoQ10) and is available
as a pill. Ideal free-serum estradiol level is 7-9 pg/mL. A compounding pharmacy can prepare a pill
consisting of 2 mg of estradiol with 50-100 mg of progesterone. The lotion form
is better for the skin. Plant sources are not estrogen but molecules which mimic
estrogen of unproven safety and effectiveness. Doctors who follow the Wiley Protocol
are other methods of hormone balancing for post menopause women are milking the insurance and patient, and it lacks sound
scientific evidence. Keep it simple. However in Europe excellent results have been obtained with Trisekvens; Novo Nordisk, Denmark.
Better treatments -- 3/18/15
Anticoagulants Recommendations: “It is not true
that most cases of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in medical patients can be prevented.” Fails to show benefit over risk except for the very highest risk for coronary events and strokes. Aspirin as an antiplatelet reduces risk of stroke, embolism, and MI; as an anti-inflammatory drug reduces for atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and rheumatoid & osteoarthritis;
and because of activation of necrosis factor reduces risk of cancer risk &
increases survival; and these benefits are dose dependent. Thus take one or two 325 mg aspirin daily. Other than a 4% increased long-term risk of gastric ulcer, aspirin is safe.
That 4% is much lower than the 3.43% of major bleeding per year with warfarin. Risk is greatly reduces with elimination of Helicobacter Pylori bacteria. When all causes of death are included anticoagulants don’t
save lives, see WARIS study. From 1992 to 1996, I took under physician advice eight 325 mg (2.5 grams)
coated aspirin per day for chronic back pain (inflammation), and had zero heart burn, and has since then takes 1 to 3, 325
mgs daily. My blood pressure is 125 over 75, total cholesterol level low below
175, and in the 7th decade I run once a week, swim once a week, and weight train 4 days weekly.
the greatest degree of complexity: in treatments tailored to conditions & in diagnosis relying upon technologies. Looking
in from the outside, it would be inappropriate for me to judge physical interventions
though given the record of corporate medicine caution is in line, e.g., catheter ablation has critics, drugs critics and so on. 1) Avoid drugs for arrhythmia (they are not magic bullets)--except during an emergency where a much different sort of drug is given. Long term trials confirm that the great increase the death rate through pro-arrhythmia. “Treatment strategies designed
solely to suppress these arrhythmias should no longer be followed”
2) Arrhythmia is used as a reason for prescribing anticoagulants. Take only aspirin in sufficiently high dose (325 to 975 mg/day) to prevent tolerance
from developing & it has many other benefits. Low dose is a pharma plow, for long term it doesn’t have an antiplatelet effect—pharma studies in the
last 20 on aspirin are all short-term or designed to exaggerate the risks.
Atherosclerosis: Healthful lifestyle of normal weight, low sugar diet, and regular exercise. Don’t worry about cholesterol and saturated fats they are good for you. Pharma still through their continuing education class teaches doctors the cholesterol myth which they treat with diet and statins. Watch the documentaries exposing the myth. For everyone, take CoQ10, Vitamin C, and aspirin are all protective. Testosterone lowers risk of MI, heart failure, and metabolic syndrome. Estradiol is why women don’t develop cardiovascular disease until after menopause. High blood pressure is associated with
adverse advents because it is a marker for atherosclerosis, just like fever is for influenza.
It is not a cause of those events, except for the much less common hemorrhagic stroke.
But pharma makes billions telling doctors that hypertension is the cause of heart attacks and strokes; rather it is
young, unstable plaque that leaks.
Cancer chemotherapy: For treatment and diagnosis a teach hospital is
best. Become knowledgeable. Given
the marketing bias in practice of medicine, in journals and in textbooks, start with a search of the critical journal articles
concerning treatment and diagnosis. Time counts; have a biopsy as soon
as possible. Read carefully the results concerning the abnormality of the tissue
and size of tumor. The term cancer, malignant, and carcinoma can only properly be applied if the tumor has spread outside the tissue of origin, but often it is applied misleading to in situ tumors. The greater the abnormality of the cells, the greater the risk, and the more likely it will be called malignant though it is benign. If the
risk is substantial that the local tumor will evolve into cancer, have it removed. Remember that time increases the risk of an indolent cancer becoming aggressive, and/or
metastatic. If chemotherapy is recommended, submit to it only when major benefits
are clearly documented, and deduct for bias, which is the norm. Don’t rely upon treatment guidelines,
they are based upon marketing science, so too is the advice of the oncologist whose continuing education is given by pharma. Published articles have an average bias of 32%. Only for a few cancers does chemotherapy
save lives, the rest are not curative (see hope’s hypothesis), nor does chemo prevent a missed indolent cancer from becoming aggressive or metastatic. If it is curable, then see if an in
vitro chemo-sensitivity testing is available. The term survival referring to chemo that is not curative, this term means to live a couple of months longer. If the cancer is not cured in terminal patients as tested in phase iii clinical trials,
then if your cancer is metastatic it too won’t be cured. If it isn’t metastatic then there is no need for chemotherapy,
because it won’t stop the growth of a missed tumor. In either case it is
best not to poison yourself which often significantly reduces the quality of your remaining years. In the majority of cases aspirin is the best prophylactic and best treatment because it activates necrosis factor NF-B. Read Aspirin, & Aspirin's Cancer Protection. Take 325 mg of aspirin, or more, with each meal for the first 5 years. This ability of aspirin is one more unstated reason for pharma to oppose the use of aspirin. If aspirin irritates stomach take Tums and avoid a protein pump inhibitor.
If acid indigestion is severe, check for Pylori bacteria, which causes ulcers, and is easily eradicated. For reducing risk of cancer take 325 or 650 mg daily. JK has
taken aspirin since 1992, an average of 650 mg, and this has reduced his cancer risk over 50%.
Testosterone and natural estrogen moderately reduce risks for certain cancers, though pharma claims otherwise.
Hypertension: In over 90% of cases where the blood pressure is above 160/90, it is
atherosclerosis that causes hypertension and the associated renal damage. Neither
can be reversed with drug therapy. “In developed countries, the two leading causes of death,
myocardial infarction , and stroke, may each directly result from an
arterial system that has been slowly and progressively compromised by years of deterioration (see atherosclerosis)” Wiki. But
pharma stresses HBP for which their drugs can lower BP. There is no quick fix for the damaged kidneys or clogged, stiff
calcified arteries. Encapsulated plaque with fibrous matrix cannot be
removed (dissolved) with drugs. Treatment ought to be at stopping the process of atherogenesis and thus through revascularization
healing will progress. Since the problem is not cholesterol, a drug such as a statins does not change the course of events—though pharma claims it does.
Its tobacco science, watch documentaries or read Cholesterol Myth. For atherosclerosis there is a better approach: long-term program of life-style
changes involving exercise and low-insulin diet; supplements and drugs 325 mg aspirin and CoQ10,
natural estrogen (estradiol with progesterone reduces
MI by 50%) and testosterone which strengthens myocardial muscles,
promotes healing, & reduces risk of metabolic syndrome, and diabetes. These
will stop atherogenesis and allow the body to partially heal.
List: Myocardial Infarction, MI, Acute Ischemic Coronary Event, Heart Attack:
to event, take daily 325 mg of aspirin (it has many health benefits including reducing MI risk by 51%)and live a healthful lifestyle. Past menopause, take estradiol with progesterone (natural HRT). It is why MI for premenopausal
women is rare. It is very significantly cardiovascular protective. Men, testosterone if level is below 350, for it increases muscle mass , strength, lowers MI risk; low testosterone is associated with metabolic syndrome, and aggressive prostate cancer. See relevant portions above. Find out where an angioplasty is available at all hours. This and the injection of a powerful clot-busting drug are the only significantly effective treatment,
but must be administered in the first three hours from onset of MI in the first 90
minutes, after that their value is not worth the risks.
Event With onset of symptoms take 325 mg of not-coated aspirin sublingually—the more the better. Nitroglycerin is also very effective. Keep your wits
about you and resist and remember if testing doesn’t leading to usefully treatment, then don’t be tested. In this case an angiogram after 2 hours is not worth the consequences.
phase: continue with hormone replacement therapy, 325 mg aspirin, and
Q10. Exercise reduces angina pain. Angina
will over several years diminish as revascularization occurs naturally. Allow the body to heal naturally.
Avoid list: CRITICAL CARE: (in order of importance): downers (psychotropic drug),
high blood pressure medication, antiarrhythmics, Protein Pump Inhibitor (PPI), heparin & other blood thinners but for aspirin,
and oxygen. Instead of heparin or similar anticoagulant promptly take 975
mgs aspirin, followed by one every 4 hours. Downers (psychotropic drugs) have many indications such as anti-nauseas, muscle relaxant, sedative. If drowsiness or mental confusion is a side effect,
it is probably a downer (or an opiate). Drugged, the patient is less likely to
inform the nurse of a negative turn in their condition, or resist their doctor’s advice. Drugs for hypertension other
than nitroglycerin do not lower morality Cochrane Library.
RECOVERY: PPI is recommended
with the anticoagulant, but PPIs are addicting
because of the rebound effect,
and long-term usage causes serious life-shortening, side effects such as osteoporosis & colitis. Tums is a better choice. Statins
are justified only by marketing science. Counter to their marketing science improved lipid profile is like lowering fever instead of treating the infection; statins lower quality of life. Ventricular assist devices
cause MIs thus shorten life. PPI, statin, blood pressure drugs, blood thinner, antiarrhythmics drug therapy, and downer lack quality evidence that prove their net worth and superiority to other choices; yet they are routinely
administered in the hospital and nursing home, when the patient is most vulnerable.
Keep it simple; Doctors are pill pushers. Avoid polypharmacy
because it multiplies the risk of major side effects. All too often their side effects are treated with additional drugs.
All side effects are grossly under-reported. Most drugs started
in the hospital and nursing home will be continued long-term. As stated above, treatment
protocols are “messaged” by the pharmaceutical industry, and doctors find it very prudent to follow them,
unless you instruct them otherwise. While recovering, avoid both stent and bypass operations: “studies have failed to find reduction in hard endpoints for angioplasty vs. medical therapy in-stable
angina patients. The artery-opening procedure
alleviates chest pain far more quickly than medical therapy, but has not been
shown to prolong life. The vast majority of MIs do not originate with obstructions that narrow arteries" Wiki. An exception would for acute STEMI with unstable refractory
angina with objective evidence of ischemia, UK study.
My father in 1953 had a very severe heart attack; a second one 2 years
later. In the era before drugs, angioplasty, bypass operations, statins, hypertensive drugs he receive morphine and lidocaine
for heart beat. And subsequently he had little pills of nitroglycerin which he
placed under his tongue for attacks of angina. The angina lasted 10 years and
he died of a stroke in 1976, 23 ½ years after his first heart attack at the age of 76.
Twenty-three years of bad health was the price he paid for smoking 2 packs of Camels daily. In that same era, Dwight David Eisenhower also smoked 2 packs a day.
He had had a major heart attack in 1955 and was cared for in the same year at the same hospital as my father. Ike had 7 heart attacks and died of congestive heart failure 12 years later in 1969
at the age of 78.
