Medical malpractice is this nation’s 3rd highest killer

In over 100 years of “research” on “curing cancer”, and after spending an average of $50 billion a year for the last 10 years on this research, the only FDA approved methods we have for battling cancer is surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy—two of those solutions are actually carcinogenic.  Even worse, there are a litany of scientific studies published which conclude that chemo and radiation do very little to prolong life, let alone a quality life.

Over 75 years, and a research budget of over 5 billion dollars a year for the last 5 years, and we still don’t have a full understanding and successful treatment of diabetes.  People are dying every minute in this nation from “symptoms” of diabetes.

Multiple-Sclerosis has raised billions of dollars over the last decade and yet we still have no solutions.

Cystic-Fibrosis affects one in every 25 babies born in the U.S.-no viable solutions.  We are better about recognizing its existence though–so that we can give the bad news to the parents.

Heart disease continues to go undetected in 1 of 5 patients.  One in five persons will be diagnosed with a mental disorder this year. One in three persons will be diagnosed with cancer! Tuberculosis and Whooping Cough is making a comeback to our nation—for the first time in 20 years.

The new super bug of the season has still not yet been properly identified and yet a so-called vaccination is highly encouraged for all Americans by every pharmacy, super-store, and medical talking head on television.

Advances for treating disease progresses while prevention lags way behind

What is the Medical Community Doing?

Despite the United States having the reputation for the most advanced medical technology and health care system in the world, cancer, heart disease, and diabetes actually take a back seat every year to an even more pervasive killer—medical error.

The FDA is actually PAID billions every year by the powerful pharmacology industry to approve testing and they continue to do so in spite of the inevitable “recalls” which occur after the millions of dollars are paid for “research and certification of a drugs safety.”  I don’t know what part of the world you live in, but here on earth we find that those who pay for the research and study usually end up with the outcome that they actually pay for.

Waiting room times in the emergency room get longer and longer with the accompanying horror stories of fatalities during such waits.

Obamacare Effects in Your Medical Community

In a response to Obamacare, countless employees are being informed that their health insurance has been eliminated from their benefit packages or that the employee’s cost burden will increase an average of 55% .  Health insurance companies are dropping corporations like flies in an attempt to protect themselves financially.

Pharmaceuticals have increased in cost an average of 20% (including generic brands) over the last 4 years. This may not make much of a difference to some pocket books, but when you’re medication costs $1500 for one single pill that is critical to your survival; it makes a huge difference.

Oh, and let’s not forget the serious trend we’re seeing throughout the U.S. of persons becoming addicted to their pain medication.

Shall I also mention that our food, our very life force, is being poisoned left and right via legalized chemicals in our meat, grains, fish, and produce?  All of these which are supposed to be good for the economy and perfectly fine for our bodies, and yet we’ve still had more food recalls in the last two years than all of the past 15 years put together.

I could go on and on here. But my point in all of this is what part of all of this yells “medical independence” to any of us?

I’m sure that there will be those few who demand that I give references to all of this information, but I’m simply not going to do that. It’s readily available on every single search engine I used this morning in writing the article.  There’s very little information that I’ve shared here that hasn’t made the front page news recently—so much so that I simply sound like I’m regurgitating last week’s top news stories. You and I both know that this is what’s going on around us.  We’d have to be living in a dark cave among the Tibetan monks NOT to.

Medical Preparedness

I think we will all agree that none of this is happy news. Some may say it’s just down right depressing. With this kind of a landscape, is there anyone who feels in control of their own medical care?  Can you blame anyone who doesn’t? Think about the young mother who’s trying to take care of her aging mother who suffers from dementia, or the father who’s trying to stay awake at night watching his son be pumped full of antibiotics to make sure that there are no lethal side effects.

Again, I ask the question, does anyone feel like they are medically independent?

Unfortunately, I know that the answer for most is “no.”  But that’s not what you’re going to hear from The Preparedness Pro, folks.  In fact I know that I’m definitely going to cause a stir with this assertion, but if you know me, you know that I’ve never exactly tread “safely”. For the first time in my life, I feel completely in control of my health and well-being.

I am so grateful that I can honestly say that barring a serious accident I feel pretty darn independent in the area of medical needs.  I do not feel like I’m subjected to the whims of modern “science” or the paradigms of medical professors or the agenda of the pharmaceutical industry—which, by the way is the second most powerful industry in the world—second only to the banking industry, and then followed by the food industry.  I’ve been plagued by a myriad of illnesses throughout a lot of my years and I’ve certainly watched loved ones subjected to the same.  I am grateful to say that I am no longer vulnerable to the field of medicine and health care—not financially, not in terms of treatments or medicines, not by any government office with ominous initials, and certainly not in terms of Obamacare.  The truth is, while I certainly would be disturbed by all of those who would suffer, I know two things which give me great comfort.

1) The body performs an amazing miracle every second of every day. If we give it the proper tools and enough time then we can indeed help it to heal.

2) The earth does still have sufficient tools, which if we become more knowledgeable, are readily available to us, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional health care.

Essential oils and herbs are part of our medical preparedness

This means that there are many who are suffering who do not need to do so.  As such, to me this means that I need to pursue my knowledge of medical preparedness as aggressively as possible and to stock up on the tools necessary to help the body perform its many miracles. But that responsibility can’t just be relegated to me.  Anyone who’s interested in minimizing the amount of physical and emotional suffering during a challenge must consider this aspect very seriously.  If one does not have the tools necessary to care for a loved one during a time of crisis, then one will be seriously compromised emotionally, medically, and physically.

There are those times in which a body doesn’t have “enough time” to heal without dying.  It is those times in which I believe that our traditional Western Medicine serves well. But even with that said, I still firmly believe that there is much we can do to eliminate the majority of those emergencies with our body, regardless of the presently accepted level of medical knowledge that’s pervasive in our society.

Knowledge of truth is key to our medical independence, but even more important is APPLIED knowledge. What good it is to have oodles of alternative methods for health care stored if we are not using them today at every opportunity?  If you’ve found something that’s particularly helpful to you and improving your health, then do you have at least a year’s supply of such an item?  Just as important, do you have at least a years experience in applying them? Also, what will your conscience tolerate in a time of trial if you didn’t share with others your vital knowledge so that they too may be edified and made whole in this aspect of preparedness?

If the “holistic” side of the fence seems a bit “woo-woo” to you (to quote one of my skeptical readers) then instead of complaining, how about coming up with an alternative that you feel comfortable with–because the facts don’t lie. Every conceivable modern medical care of today that’s executed through the pharmacies and hospitals requires electricity.  So, what would you do in the event of an EMP that fries every single electrical chip in operation?  Or an earthquake that wipes out all of the medical device manufacturing plants? Or a bio-chemical agent which is targeted toward every standard pharmaceutical production company or the water supply? Calling me a “quack” at such a time will do nothing to dry your tears or to give you peace–whereas diligent study and implementation now certainly will. And besides, even a blind dog can find a bone once in a while—translation: even a “quack” can be right occasionally. *grin*

Here’s hoping you have a peaceful journey towards your answers of Medical Preparedness

You hit the nail on the head again! Great introduction to your new page. As a holistic health teacher and herbalist I see a great need for personal responsibility in the health arena. We all know those who bow down to the medical industry only to become sicker and have additional illness from side-effects that their lives revolve around Dr. appointments. I use and can appreciate medical intervention, when I have done all that I can, including priesthood blessings, personal family prayer and fasting, etc.

Like all areas of preparedness it does come down to personal responsibility. And if you don’t know what to do; research, ask questions, etc. Quality health information is abundant!

Remember that the doctors are still “practicing”. 🙂


Barbara · November 2, 2010 at 2:59 am

Our family continues to seek better alternatives to the traditional health care system. Having a family member with a chronic illness that the MDs can do little for has made us aware of the importance of alternative therapies. Our library is growing and our remedies include quality essential oils, herbs and other blessing from the earth. I agree with Kristine that prayer, fasting, Priesthood Blessings, faith – these are the basics.

I look forward to the new medical side of Preparedenss Pro. Thanks again for the time and energy that you put into making this a great resource for your readers!!

Nick · November 2, 2010 at 3:26 am

Kellene, Kellene, Kellene…*sigh*…as soon as Obamacare takes effect, you won’t be ALLOWED to have any say over your health and well-being. You will be FORCED to stay on the grid health-wise. How DARE you want to put thousands of bureaucrats out of work!! How will the government take care of them if you don’t give your fair share of your money to them??

Seriously, the best thing the federal government is doing is that it’s overreaching far too much, far too fast. I feel sorry for France and Greece, but I’m glad that Americans are seeing the riots going on there and hopefully getting a sense of what happens when wealth is redistributed and then runs out.

Buckle your seat belts, boys and girls. The ride is going to get bumpy.

    Kellene · November 2, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    Actually, Nick, Obamacare has absolutely no effect on me. If you want to know why, download last Saturday’s show as per the link I shared this past post. Enjoy!

STACIA · November 2, 2010 at 4:13 am

what do you think about immunizations, and do you know where we can sign up for classes to learn how to be an herbalist or learn how to use essential oils?

    Kellene · November 2, 2010 at 3:41 pm

    Personally I’m very anti-immunization shots. There is far too many “side effects” that are admitted to for me to take that chance on my family or my community. We will continue working on the essential oil class for broadcast here soon.

I am very very concerned for a little girl we know… she has life-threatening diabetes… I got her a few big bags of skittles (she uses them to keep her sugar up). I am going to boldly talk outright to her mother about prepping. I know we can read the sentences in blogs “people on dialysis machines, others… people will die” that are correct, if cold. Knowing this girl, her family, I am pained to think of the casualties that will come because of conditions like this. Very much looking forward to the medical focus.

Mike · November 2, 2010 at 1:44 pm

Hello Kellene. Your articles are so informative. And I believe inspired. I don’t consider myself a “conspiracy theorist” but, there is a move afoot in this country, and the world to keep control over the masses. Been that way for some time. Well from a Public Health Preparedness standpoint, that is exactly what the Government of the USA and others are doing. There are currently in place plans to vaccinate or push pills to people in a public health emergency. What better way to keep on pushing what many folks are beginning to reject? Keep on writing and informing. After all, “people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge…” I am a Diabetic and have 1 heart stint in place. I know why and am trying to do something about it. Please keep your articles coming. Thank you.

RDzierzon · November 2, 2010 at 3:51 pm

I lost my four year old to Cancer in 2009 and although I am learning more about holistic health there is a real place for modern medicine. Without the aid of Medicaid my daughter would have been dead by February 2008. But instead I was fortunate to have the assistance of the government and the wonderful technologies that have been developed. NO it didn’t save my daughter but it gave me an additional year with her and although the chemo and radiation weren’t fun. My little girl was able to get up and play and laugh with us during a time when she should have been dead.

I usually enjoy reading the preparedness pro articles but I have to say that this one makes me feel like there is a lot of whining and over dramatization and not enough looking at the blessings we have. No we haven’t found the cure for cancer or diabetes, but individuals suffering from diseases like those are living longer and more satisfying lives because of the research that has been performed. I thank God for the additional days I had with my precious little girl. All of which would have been IMPOSSIBLE with out government aid and modern medicine.

God Bless

    Kellene · November 2, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    I realize that this is a very touchy topic, particularly with those who have had to go through the loss of a loved one as a result of a lack of a cure. The fact of the matter is though, that there have been no less than 15 proven CURES for cancer which have been introduced to the U.S., England, France, and Italy just in the last 60 years–each of them having significantly better results than the three methods of treatment that are approved by the FDA. All of these methods were run out of the nations with a whole lot of money, malicious marketing, and political peril. As such, our nation has become a significant source of medical refugees who are having to go to other nations for treatment for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc.

    I truly am sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how awful it must have been to watch your 4 year old suffer through such a debilitating disease. I see my friend who’s battling breast cancer every single night–and every night it’s tough–even though I’m certain she will come out of this one fine. While the traditional medicine makes her horribly ill with their treatments, her allowing me to provide her with some holistic care each night, which cannot be patented by the pharmaceutical industry, has been the ONLY thing to give her any relief from the burning pain, neuropathy, stomach cramps, and headaches–which are a side effect of her cancer treatment. I assure you, that that being the case you are not hearing any whining from me. I dare say my article yesterday was full of speaking through gritted teeth and perhaps some growling. To me it’s completely unacceptable that 80% of the rest of the world successfully practices alternative health care without persecution, yet if a person in this nation dares to offer an alternative to counter the big powerful behemoth of health care, they are skewered and hung out to dry. To me it’s absolutely unacceptable that the very industry we grant billions of dollars to REFUSES to entertain any successful, scientifically PROVEN alternative ways to care for cancer simply because it would do nothing to benefit their bank accounts.

    If you’ll note in the article I specifically say that since our body is a miracle, and since we HAVE been blessed with the tools to take care of them, given enough time, then that is my preferred method–however in those circumstances when we have run out of time, that’s when Western Medicine needs to step in. Western Medicine is only really fit for emergencies. It has no heritage of caring for the maintenance and whole well-being of a person…just masking the symptoms.

    Andra · November 7, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    I can not imagine the depth of your grief over the loss of your little girl. I am so very sorry. How fortunate and blessed you and your family were to have received the help you needed that gave you that precious time with your sweet little daughter. My prayers go out to you.

Article: Be sure to watch the 18-minute long New Zealand News3 video report

Barb · November 2, 2010 at 10:18 pm

Several years ago I read about a survey taken of the physicians at McGill Cancer Hospital in Canada. Some of the questions: If you or a loved one were diagnosed with cancer, would you accept the treatment you prescribe? 67 of 74 physicians who answered the survey said NO. Next question: Why or Why not? Two answers: Because they don’t work — The treatment is worse than the disease. Next question: What would you do? Most answers were: I’d take a vacation in Mexico where they CURE cancer!
The doctors KNOW that cancer is curable, but unless they want to lose their licences they have to continue ordering the cut, burn, and poison treatments. If my husband or I were diagnosed, we would try KNOWN cures in the alternative medical field. If that didn’t work, we’d take a vacation in Mexico.

Kolleen · November 3, 2010 at 12:04 am

Amen to your wonderful article. I grew up using ‘alternative’ health care methods. There is a time and place for traditional medicine but too often we think the dr’s have all the answers and don’t investigate what could help our bodies heal before we throw something synthetic at it. I strongly believe in trying herbs, essential oils, vitamins, etc first. However, I have run up against something I can’t find an alternative solution for – hypothyroidism. I tried everything natural when I was diagnosed and it just wasn’t strong enough. Finally went on Armour thyroid and it has worked beautifully. But can anyone tell me how I get a year’s supply and what solutions there are if there comes a time when I can’t get it. This happened a year or so ago and I had to go on synthetic thyroid. Now it is available again but if the time comes when neither is available, I just wonder what to do? Any ideas for me?

    Kellene · November 3, 2010 at 1:37 am

    Kolleen, I have hypothyroidism too. I can share with you what I’ve successfully been doing for it. Just e-mail me.

      Pat Scott · November 3, 2010 at 10:43 am

      I would also like to know what you do for your hypothyroidism.

Focus · November 3, 2010 at 12:34 am

Kolleen, I am taking synthroid medication for my removed thyroid gland…is there anything out there that can replace synthroid in an emergency?

    Kellene · November 3, 2010 at 1:36 am

    Focus, my research says YES. Send me a private e-mail and I can go into it further with you.

Peg · November 3, 2010 at 12:59 am

Kellene–Great article! I have fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis and I B S. It took the Drs almost 3 years to diagnose the fibromyalgia. I felt like a lab rat from the drugs they tried on me. I am suseptible to pharmicitals. I have been involved in herbs, minerals and vitamins for most of my life. About 4 months ago I told the Drs. that I wouldn’t take any more of their drugs. I told them that I would take Darvocet for pain, not perfect, but I can make it work. I would use my old prescribed muscle relaxant, again, not perfect but I can make it work. I felt like I was a “Cash Cow” for the Drs. Fibro is a diseas they don’t understand what causes it, they treat the symptoms. I was given drugs that had side effects and they gave me meds to treat the side effects. NO Thanks! I now take asprin as an anti-inflamatory (it is the only thing I can use) and my herbs, vitamins, and minerals. I am a firm believer in good food, herbs, vitamins, and minerals. I have done research but I feel that I need more information. I also believe there is a time and place for traditional medicine. If you have a full-blown infection, you need an antibiotic. People should remember that they are resposible for their own health. You go to see a Dr. they are with you maybe 15 min. and they start prescribing Meds. You have lived in your body for 20,30 50,or 60 years. You know more about it than anyone. I feel most Drs. are good people, but they have been brain-washed by Medical School that are financed mostly by Pharmacitial Co. I am really looking forward to your new site. Keep up the good work. I really need and enjoy all your articles

Pat · November 3, 2010 at 7:25 pm

If you want to start on the road to good health; start reading the ingredient labels on everything you buy at the toxic food store or as most commonly called, the grocery store. I have been shocked at what they call healthy! I can’t even offer anyone a piece of gum without knowing that I’m offering them a toxic food! There’s Aspartame or sugarfree (can cause blindness -Glenn Beck ring a bell?, bulging eyes and many other eye problems, tinnitus, intolerance of noise, hearing impairments, epileptic seizures, headaches, migraines,shortness of breath, high blood pressure, pain when swallowing,hives respiratory allergies such as asthma,hair loss,low blood sugar, severe PMS, BRAIN Damage, ulcers hyperactivity in children (Oh yea they’ve got pills for that!), suicidal tendencies. It may trigger illnesses such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Grave’s disease Alzheimer’s, Arthritis, Epilepsy, MS, Fibromyalgia. This list I am reading is three pages long of what this additive can do! Two pieces of gum containing Xylitol can kill a rat! It is in gum, candy and pastries. Wondering why so much diabetes? Can you say high fructose corn syrup which is in most national fruit and vegetable juices, chocolate syrup, dry cereal, and it is a huge amount in DOG AND CAT FOOD!!! (guess they want to kill off our pets too!). Yes we are the fattest nation on earth according to the news–look what they are feeding us! My Grandson refuses to eat at any fast food because of what he was taught at school the food contains and how it is prepared in the factories who ship to your local fun food places-I did’nt ask. If you don’t know what an ingredient is LOOK IT UP! You need to know what your family is eating. PLEASE READ THE INGREDIENT LABELS! Thank you so much for such a wonderful blog Kellene, yours and (James Wesley, Rawles blog)are the most informative and my personal favorites. You are saving so many lives,God Bless You. And also remember folks–GARDENING IS GREAT! Grow and raise your own food, then you really know what you are eating!

Sherry Johnson · November 6, 2010 at 6:39 pm

Very nicely done article. I really fear for people who look to doctors for all the answers. God bless sincere doctors who really want to help, but people who have on gong illnesses often find out just how little they can do. They certainly can’t monitor your daily health choices or all the various environmental factors at play in your health. Self responsibility has always been important for health.

Patty · January 19, 2011 at 4:52 pm

just wondered if you could direct me to the link of the page you talk about being almost finished “medical preparedness” or where I should look for further info.

    Kellene · December 8, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    We’ve made more changes so as not to JUST have a medical preparedness page. Instead, all of our articles will be put into groupings as pertaining to their principle of preparedness. They will each be identified by the icon which appears right next to the title of the article and then if a person wants to focus strictly on the medical they can click on that icon and see all such articles. We hope to have all of the changes done to the site including a Whole lot of other work by the first of the year. We’re trying to make it ready prior to the National Geographic show airing.

You are so on target with what you are thinking that it is amazing. One of the biggest threats to our health is our lack of knowledge. Anyone can learn, anyone can question. I find it amazing that my own mother who has a history of heart problems, type II diabetes, multiple fractures, hypertension and obesity (no she is not huge, size 16 170 lbs) and when she is hospitalized and her diet is controlled her medication list (about 20-25 meds long) will gradually reduce in size until when she leaves the hospital (after about 3 weeks) she will be on only 2 or 3 medications only once a day, but her lifestyle does not change and gradually medications are added to control problems until once again she is on a very long list of medications until we hit another crisis and then it is back to the hospital for 3-4 weeks and getting her on the straight and narrow again. We must take responsiblity for our own lives and take time to learn what causes those problems we are having and how we can change our habits to help our bodies heal themselves! Catastrophic illness, cancer, AIDS, TB, Emphysema etc will likely always be there, but there are some things we can do to help people feel better even when they have those devistating diseases.
