The problem with treating the symptoms of Fibromyalgia is that is it not addressing the root cause of the problem. How do you know we aren’t making things worse by the medication or pain killers if we don’t know the cause? What if the drugs they are using are depleting a chemical or damaging neurotransmitters?

Putting all these chemicals in your body has to be doing something. The proof is starting to show that some drugs are causing organ damage, cancer, side effects, death and illnesses. It is probably a matter of time before they find out Fibromyalgia is caused from some immunization, birth control, prescription, food additive or who knows what.

The treatments that are available haven’t been successful for me or from the sounds of hundreds of other women, they are still in the same pain. They try one drug and move on to the next in a desperate attempt to get rid of the pain.

I prefer they work on getting to the root of the problem, not make another drug to mask it. Only to find years later that the drug causes liver or kidney damage. How many of these drugs have proven to cure anything? If heart pills cured heart disease they wouldn’t need to still be taking the drugs. They aren’t getting to the cause of heart disease, only taking care of the symptoms.

I think the best approach we could take would be to start eliminating some of these toxic chemicals that we have been exposed to through medication, pesticides, foods, GMO foods and everyday health care products. The best place to start is demanding they quite allowing these toxins into our food and health care product chain!

No matter what chronic illness you have or even if you are healthy, they will eventually affect you in some way. Why else do we have so many diseases and sick people these days? What about the premature aging, obesity, mental illness, suicides, crime and violence?

We are not a healthy world so lets not pretend it is. We can change though, lets all start today!

I did some research in the Canadian Institute for Health Information. I am trying to avoid being one of these statistics. Keep in mind how much Alzheimer is in seniors, could there be a connection?

Drug Use Among Seniors on Public Drug Programs in Canada, 2002 to 2008 used
data from our National Prescription Drug Utilization Information System Database to
examine the claims of more than one million seniors across six provinces. It found
that nearly two-thirds of seniors were using five or more drug classes in a year, while
one in five were using 10 or more types of prescription drugs.

Could this be why seniors get Alzheimer disease?

Why don’t we call it Sick Care rather than Health Care? Who is getting healthy? Who are they curing? I don’t get the Health Care these days. More and more people are becoming ill, they are coming up with more names for new illnesses everyday. Then of course new prescriptions for these new illnesses they don’t know the long term effects of until we try them out folks. Some synthetic chemical made in a laboratory. This is why it is so important to report your side effects. Nothing is getting better is it? If chemo was working, wouldn’t we see more people being cured of cancer? If heart pills and cholesterol pills were working, wouldn’t we be seeing them get healthy and get off the medications? Instead we are seeing a lifetime of prescriptions until their death. The real question, ” Has it improved their quality of life?”

There aren’t enough Doctors and the ones we do have don’t have time for you nor can they even remember your case. Do they really have any answers for you rather than to pretty much throw a trial prescription at you and see how that goes? They often misdiagnose, over diagnose or under diagnose. Is it just a guessing game? I have been hurdled through health care for the last 20 years and one doctor can’t agree with the other. It almost seems to me like a power struggle, who is right and who is wrong? Dr Jack thinks Dr Jill doesn’t know what she is talking about. Where does that leave the patient who is genuinely in real pain and discomfort? Desperate, confused, angry and defensive from not being believed, or even worse, some resort to suicide. I know women with Fibromyalgia who are ridiculed from the disbelief that they could be in that much pain.

I have talked to many people about the health care they are receiving and I see I am not alone. Here is a familiar statement:

“I come out of the Dr’s office without any straight answers or solutions to my problems. I am given a prescription but I am lost as to what the answer to my problem is or how to fix it. The prescription didn’t work for me but I did experience some nasty side effects. I still am not sure what solution I was given.”

Could it be that our health care is too overwhelmed because we keep going back to get the answers they can’t seem to give us? Perhaps if they spent some time on preventative health care rather than with pills people wouldn’t be so sick. For starters why don’t we demand that the FDA take the toxins out of our foods, personal health care and cleaning products? They claim they are protecting us. Think again, they are the ones who said these toxins were safe to put in our products in the first place. They couldn’t be absorbed  through the skin was their story. Hmmm, unbelievable really!

The thing is we will pay more taxes and we will be getting worse health care, longer waiting times. Isn’t it time we started healing instead of medicating?

Read below:

Dodge, co-author of a study on the system published by the market-friendly C.D. Howe Institute, said Canadian healthcare spending will rise to 19 percent of gross domestic product in 2031 from 12 percent in 2009 if it keeps growing at its current pace.

That will force Canadians to consider sharp cuts in other public services, higher taxes, more private spending to keep the system going, as well as a degradation of public healthcare standards, the report said.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/04/06/canada-health-idUSN0625574220110406

Chronic Health Care Spending Disease

The report authors advise: Canadians must choose some combination of (1) a sharp reduction in public services other than health care (2) increased taxes to finance the public share of health care spending (3) increased individual spending on health care through co-payments or the delisting of health services or (4) longer queues and services of poorer quality.

Chronic illnesses such as Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lupus, Rheumatoid and arthritic conditions can be a long hard road for the sufferer to endure. To make matters worse, it can be devastating when disability benefits deny your claim. As if the stress of having to deal with unexplained, chronic pain and fatigue isn’t enough?

“A lot of people being denied ODSP really do qualify at the very onset when they apply. But they are denied…Some of these people have to go through the whole appeal system, and it’s costing a lot of taxpayers’ money, when they shouldn’t have been denied in the first place. I fail to see how this is streamlining the process to work better for disabled people and to work better for the taxpayers.” Sonia Levesque-Parsons, West End Legal Services, Ottawa, November 29, 2000.

These illnesses are predominantly woman’s illnesses, they have been around for over 100 years yet we are still having to defend the fact that we are indeed suffering with real pain. Just exercise, take two aspirins and call me in the morning, right doc?

There is without a doubt a real problem with our Health Care Services. I read two articles today from the Calgary Post and the National Post that doctors are stepping forward to share their concerns even though they are being intimidated by the government to keep silent. You can only keep things quiet so long before the truth comes.

Just look at the hospitals and doctors offices constantly full, the wait lines, the overworked doctors who don’t have time for you or just don’t know what to do for a lot of the people anymore, the over prescribing of drugs, the drugs being sold on the streets, the addiction to pain killers, the overworked surgeons, the misdiagnoses, the wrong prescriptions given, surgery on the wrong part or the wrong patient and the amount of disease and illness around.

Just look at this A-Z list of diseases we have come up with. The more chemicals, preservatives, over-the counter and prescription drugs they introduce, the more illness, disease and prescriptions needed.

http://www.cdc.gov/DiseasesConditions/az/a.html

What is it going to take to see that we need to make some changes and start to think about preventative health instead of disease? Hospital and doctors offices waiting lines can sometimes be up to 5 hours or more. I don’t see why we aren’t aiming to be the healthiest country around. Why can’t we set out own standard of organic foods, health education and physical fitness to be a proud, fit and healthy country? Who knows what we can accomplish.

Here are some inserts from the articles:

Alberta’s opposition parties and a growing number of physicians are ratcheting up the pressure on the Stelmach government to call a full judicial inquiry examining the silencing of doctors as well as hundreds of cases of substandard care and alleged cancer surgery wait-list deaths.

As more physicians speak up claiming they’ve been intimidated by government for voicing health-care concerns, Alberta Health Services issued an unprecedented open letter Wednesday to all doctors saying they have a right and duty to advocate for patients.

As Canada grapples with how to fix a health care system widely considered to be faltering, the voices of doctors at the heart of the sector are obviously indispensable. In Alberta, though, some physicians say that speaking out can get them nothing but trouble. Accusations of intimidation are growing, after Raj Sherman, the renegade Conservative, now Liberal, MLA , charged that hundreds of patients had died on a lung-surgery waiting list, and that doctors had been ordered to keep quiet about it.

The emergency physician’s dramatic allegation has been met with a fair bit of skepticism. Other doctors, however, have also come forward to suggest they faced heat from hospitals or health authorities after criticizing some aspect of the system, though one case publicized this week appeared more like an internal hospital dispute than a clear example of whistle blowing. The Alberta Medical Association has cited allegedly hard-headed bargaining by the government in the current fee negotiations as another instance of “intimidation.” Opposition politicians in the province have called for a public inquiry into all the charges.

I have read story after story from Fibromyalgia sufferers and in the end they all have the same desperation about them. Severe pain and suffering that is dismissed, a total lack of understanding and very little to no compassion. They often leave the doctors office with little or no relief and often more confused than when we went in. It is very difficult to live with the chronic pain and can be harder for family and friends to understand. Sometimes you look fine but you have this gnawing, burning pain that no one can see and extreme fatigue that no one can explain. So we are often looked at as complainers or lazy.

What they don’t know is how they feel when they have the flu is what you have become accustomed to as your everyday life. People get sore muscles and fatigue from the flu or overworking their muscles, with Fibromyalgia you live like that everyday. Feeling like you have been lifting 400 lbs of weight all day. You could do the same thing as a friend and they might experience pain in their muscles for a day or two then they bounce back, you take sometimes take weeks to recover.

Many doctors know little to none about Fibromyalgia so I think they push it off as a case of the lazies. You know, since there is nothing wrong in your blood tests. Do exercise and you will be fine. Like the famous old saying goes, “Take two aspirins and call me in the morning!”

Being a sufferer of Fibromyalgia myself for 21 year + now, I have been through all the humiliation, frustration and ignorance that goes with this “mystery syndrome” of chronic pain that no one understands or can explain because it doesn’t make sense, it is too multi-faceted or the doctor just don’t believe in it. It is met with a lot of skepticism which comes with a lot of frustration for the patient who is desperate to find answers to their pain.

The best thing you can do is to keep Doctor shopping until you have found a compassionate one that understands and has some knowledge and experience with Fibromyalgia. Even better, if you can afford a Naturopathic Doctor or alternative practitioners, they can help a lot. Body work is even better such as Massage, Osteopathy or Chiropractor, they can help sort out the pain if it is internal or external, what pain leaves and what pain returns. Shop around, there are good and bad in everything. The chronic pain itself is hard to live with and can effect the very soul of the sufferer. If you don’t have a compassion or understanding it can be detrimental. There has been many suicides from Fibromyalgia.

I think that Doctors need to stop playing god and start to listen and I mean really listen to their patients. They assume, they judge by appearance, they make an opinion even before knowing all the facts, they dismiss your pain as if you are exaggerating. No one knows your body like you do.

There is too much illness and they don’t have the time to get to know their patients. It seems you are allotted a 5 minute time slot and the doctor is always too busy to really listen or to hear as they might put it “my complaints”. It seemed to me that I was a number waiting in the Doctors office, waiting to be given script #500,602. The thing is script #1 to 500,601 didn’t work so why was I bothering anymore? We don’t know what Fibromyalgia is but we are willing to throw all these drugs at it and hope something works or at least it will shut the patient up until she comes back again with the same complaints or new issues from the side effects.

How can they treat something with drugs that they don’t understand? Isn’t that like giving a car oil in the gas tank? How do they know that these drugs aren’t what is causing it in the first place? My search is to finding the root cause to all my pain.

I watched a video by Natural News TV and from the mouth of Bill Gates himself. It was a strange admittance of a plan to depopulate the people to save the planet through vaccines, health care and reproductive health care services.

It appears they may be trying to depopulate with the chemical cocktails they have arranged through drugs, food, body products and cleaning products as well. If you read what he said below, “Now we put out a lot of carbon dioxide every year, over 26 billion tons of CO2 yearly. For each American it’s about 20 tons each person, in poor countries, it’s less than 1 ton per person. We should take it as a hint that we need to go back to the simple way of life to survive.

If the poorer countries are contributing less to the problem, should we not be adapting more to that way of living if it is a matter of distinction?

Here are his words:

I asked the top scientists this several times. Do we really have to get it down to zero, or, can’t we just cut it in half or a quarter? The answer was until we get near to zero, the temperature will continue to rise and that’s a big challenge. It is different than saying we are a 12 foot truck trying to get under a 10 foot bridge and we can just squeeze under. This is something that has to get to zero.

Now we put out a lot of carbon dioxide every year, over 26 billion tons of CO2 yearly. For each American it’s about 20 tons each person, in poor countries, it’s less than 1 ton per person. On average it’s about 5 tons for every person on the planet. And somehow we have to make changes that will bring that down to zero. It’s been constantly going up, it’s only very economic changes that have even flattened out at all. So we have to go from rapidly rising to falling and falling all the way to zero. This equation has 4 factors.

CO2 = P x S x E x C

P = people, S = Service per person, E = Energy per service, C = per unit of energy.

So lets look at each one of these and see how we can get these down to zero. Probably one of these numbers is going to have to get pretty near to zero but that’s back from high school algebra, lets take a look.

There are 6.8 billion people on this earth and that is headed up to about 9 billion. First we have got population. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care and reproductive health care services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 to 15% but there we see an increase of about 1.3%.

The second factor is the services we use, this is…………………..

Where is the second part?

Canada is suffering with a heroin problem because of Afghanistan. Isn’t it amazing how a war can effect everyone in some way? That’s the butterfly effect.
If 48 million people over the age of 12 in the U.S. have used prescription drugs for non-medical purposes, how many people world wide are using prescriptions? Do you see the passive income and profit here? Wow! KA-CHING, KA-CHING!! We are a pill popping nation whether it is street drugs or prescription drugs. IS ANYONE DRIVING SOBER? I did an article (link below) on corporations that have pied guilty or no contest to crimes and have been criminally fined in the United States. Think about how much of this is going on worldwide.

Prescription Drug Abuse Statistics

growing problems in the United States is prescription

– The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that close to 20 percent of people (48 million) over the age of 12 in the U.S. have used prescription drugs for non-medical purposes.

according to research, one of the growing causes of the increasing incidence of prescription drug abuse is the availability of drugs. This makes it easier for abusers to “pharm” prescriptions drugs. This practice of taking handfuls of drugs from wherever possible is especially growing amongst the youth.

– 9.3 percent of 12th graders report that they used Vicodin without a prescription, and 5 percent report using OxyContin. And these are just two drugs

– most common targets are strong painkillers such as Vicodin and OxyContin

– use of tranquilizers is increasing as well.

– the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reports that nearly 3 million teenagers and young adults (those aged 12 to 25) become new abusers of prescription drugs.

56 percent of the 6 million new prescription drug abusers were over the age of 18

prescription drug abuse is rising amongst the elderly as well. Even though only 13 percent of the population, the elderly account for about 1/3 of the prescriptions, reports NIH. This lends itself to prescription drug abuse.

Canada faces a flood of heroin and addicts

By Alex Roslin and Bilbo Poynter, Postmedia News December 12, 2010

Treatment centres in cities around Canada are struggling to cope with a surge of addicts — many younger than ever before — who are hooked on a rising tide of heroin pouring into this country from war-torn Afghanistan.

It’s a similar story across much of the rest of the world. After years of declining use in the 1990s, heroin and other opiates have made a startling resurgence around the globe — thanks in large part to a 37-fold increase in Afghan opium production since 2001, when Canadian soldiers helped the U.S. overthrow the country’s Taliban government. Afghanistan now supplies 92 per cent of the world’s opium.

Increased heroin supply in Canada, Europe and Asia and falling prices of the drug are the little-noticed side-effects of the Western presence in Afghanistan since 2001.

Rise in U.S. prescription drug abuse: Study

AFP September 17, 2010

WASHINGTON — The number of Americans who used illegal drugs or abused prescription medications rose last year to reach its highest level since 2002, a survey released Thursday showed.

Nearly 22 million Americans aged 12 and older used illegal drugs in 2009, a rise of nine percent from 2008, the survey conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) found.

Some seven million Americans older than 12 took prescription drugs for non-medical reasons. The bulk of the abuse of prescription medications involved painkillers, which some 5.3 million Americans used off-label last year — a rise of 20 percent from 2002.

Among teens, the rate of nonmedical prescription painkiller use rose 17 percent year on year, with most youngsters saying they got the meds from friends, family or an unsecured medicine cabinet.

Sixty percent more Americans used methamphetamine in 2009 versus 2008, and three-quarters of a million used ecstasy in 2009, the highest number of users since 2002.

“There is a relationship between economic issues and substance abuse,” she said.

The rate of drug abuse among the unemployed was double that of Americans with full-time jobs — 17 percent versus eight percent.

On a brighter note, cocaine use among 18-25 year olds has fallen by 18 percent since 2007.

Although these reports aren’t directly related to Fibromyalgia it has everything to do with our health care today and the crisis it really is in. Just a few to give you an idea of the unnecessary Surgeries and medical mistakes below. I think they are too quick to remove our organs.

Windsor hospital probes other

‘cases of concern’

Operations performed on 2 women who did not have cancer

Heartwell has voluntarily stopped performing surgeries pending the results of the probe. Any patients with concerns about their care were asked to call (519) 255-2213.

Two cases involving Heartwell have been made public so far. The latest was Janice Laporte of Sarnia, whom Heartwell operated on in 2001. A report later revealed the woman did not need the mastectomy. Laporte’s case was the second to come to light in less than a week.

In November 2009, Heartwell did a mastectomy on Laurie Johnston, 44, of Leamington. It was only in a followup appointment that Heartwell told Johnston she had never had cancer. The hospital revealed Heartwell had misread the initial pathology report.

Hospital administration was alerted to the error after being contacted by local media. It immediately launched an investigation and a review of Heartwell’s mastectomy files.

In a statement released Tuesday, the hospital said it had received detailed information about another incident in which a patient was “tragically harmed.”

When Laporte heard there was another woman who underwent an unnecessary mastectomy by the same surgeon, she said she decided to go public with her story.

“I was very devastated, because I went through everything all over again, I cried,” Laporte told CBC News.

BACKGROUND: During the past two years, this Blog has reported on a crisis in Canadian pathology indicated by serious breakdowns in hospitals in Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Ontario and elsewhere in the country. The purpose, beyond seeking review and reform, is to show that the wide-ranging problems with pathology in Canada were not limited to the criminal sector – and that serious errors, sometimes lethal, were being made in reading test results on living patients. In short, that there was a crisis in Canadian pathology.

Consequences of Gallbladder Surgery: Overview

http://smithforensic.blogspot.com/2010/08/pathology-crisis-in-canada-report.html


One of the biggest crimes in modern American medicine is the amount of unnecessary surgery preformed. Gallbladder operation is the most common operation in North America. Every year, more than half a million people in the United States and more than 50,000 people in Canada undergo surgery to remove their gallbladders because of gallstones. Many of these surgeries are unnecessary.

Check out my article on gallstones:

http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/668

 

http://www.diagnose-me.com/cond/C337709.html

Women are at an especially high risk of unnecessary surgery

Women may be at an especially high risk for unwarranted operations, since hysterectomies and Cesarean sections also top the list of “overprescribed and unnecessary” surgeries. Of the approximately 750,000 hysterectomies performed each year, 90 percent are unnecessary, writes Goldberg in Alternative Medicine, making the removal of a woman’s uterus one of the most commonly performed unnecessary surgeries. And the risk that comes with an unwarranted hysterectomy is high. “Each year 750,000 hysterectomies are performed and 2,500 women die during the operation. These are not sick women, but healthy women who go into the hospital and do not come out,” says Dr. Herbert Goldfarb, a gynecologist and assistant clinical professor at New York University’s School of Medicine, in Null’s Woman’s Encyclopedia Of Natural Healing.

Women are also frequently subjected to Caesarean sections they don’t really need. With an estimated 920,000 Cesarean births performed each year, the Cesarean has become the “most common major surgery in America” and it is four times more likely a woman will give birth via cesarean section today than it was in 1970, according to The Medical Racket by Martin L. Gross. Women are also at special risk for receiving unwarranted surgeries because of the results of a mammogram, since the high rate of false positives in mammography often leads to invasive procedures. Women who do not even have cancer to begin with are treated for breast cancer, Goldberg writes. That’s right: These women’s bodies are carved up and altered and they aren’t even sick. So why does this happen?

More medical mistakes……

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/story?id=3789868&page=1

Here are a few of our own personal experiences with medical mistakes:

From the most recent, I went to see a gynecologist and within the first 5 minutes she wanted to remove all my womanly parts, talk about unnecessary surgeries. It was just before Christmas too, she was scheduling for a Merry Christmas for her family perhaps? Turns out I don’t need it at all, I am correcting it myself with natural medicines.

As far as medical mistakes, I have had my fair share.

My husband was told he had stomach problems for years, was given stomach pills. He got these bouts of nausea, vommitting and extreme pain in his abdomen and after the attacks he had extreme weakness and fatigue after. I researched his symptoms and I found that he had either gallstones or pancreatitis. We went back to the dr and he laughed at me when I told him what I thought about his gallbladder and pancreas and said it was stomach problems. He went to a second opinion and we got the same results. The next few attacks were getting worse, the last one was so bad I called the ambulance.

To make a long story short, he had pancreatitis so bad he almost died. He ended up in St Michael’s hospital in Toronto. His gallbladder was so full of stones that it damaged his pancreas. It ate the whole center of his pancreas. Since a pancreas is digestive enzymes, they were spilling into his body basically digesting his organs. They had to cut him open and suck all the poison out of his body, they sewed him back up with 4 drains coming out of him because it was too dangerous to take his gallbladder at the time. Six months recovery and a year later they removed his gallbladder. He has two hernias in his intestines that he has to watch carefully now and had a lot of digestion problems.

I was given the drug Lupron that almost ended my life, see story: http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/583

I had a dentist hammer an implant through my sinus, after about 18+ surgeries, 3 failed implants I ended up losing 3 good teeth to a bridge replacement. Even after many corrective surgeries, the damage was so bad I couldn’t have the implant. The same dentist also put a crown in that I heard crack at the time, it then broke into pieces, got infected and I lost that one too. He got 5,000.00 from me. It will cost me over 10,000.00+ to repair the teeth he damaged.

I now have permanent pain in my sinus, a numb cheek from the nerve they cut when  the surgeon had to take bone from my jaw to try to fix the first dentist errors. They had to cut gum out of my mouth in two places and sew it to the front of the gum to try to fix the mess. I had to have a frenectomy because he left the frenum just hanging in my mouth (that is that little flappy thing between the inside of your lip and your two front teeth.

I went through 5 years of hell and ended up losing 5 teeth instead of receiving one implant. All this because I fell on that center nut on the handle bars on my bicycle when I was a kid. You know the needles in the front and the roof of your mouth were painful enough but that many times was a nightmare let alone the surgeries. They took three perfectly good teeth, ground them down to stick to put the bridge on. Now I have three sensitive teeth that hurt to eat or drink cold water now.

How can someone completely destroy someone like that and not take responsibility for it? Wonder why I don’t trust the medical and dental?
