American Medical Association commits RICO violation? This was my original title , but this is jumping the gun as the actual perpetrators influencing and funding the project below needs investigation. Tim Bolen, of the Bolen Report, says that aetna insurance and Big Pharma was behind it, but as best I can find, this is “inside information”.
Tahoma Clinic has posted FSMB (Federation of State Medical Boards) report titled Special Committee on Questionable and Deceptive Healthcare Practices that is intended to prevent consumers (patients) from choosing holistic doctors. In this report “harm” does not mean injury but rather “economic harm” and they drafted third party players (like insurance companies!) to report physicians to licensing boards. I paraphrased another physicians comments and will find his name and post the credit.
Here is the FSMB link http://mss.fsmb.org/FSMBJournal/v84/v84n3RptSpCmteHlthCareFraud.pdf
Using the power of the state to suppress competition and there is an effort ongoing to trace Big Pharma and at least one insurance carrier to this act by the FSMB
By 1995, using German textbooks as a guide, I began using plant/botanical preparations to benefit my patients. Sometimes, there wasn’t a synthetic alternative that could do what flowers, roots, and mushrooms could do! By enacting this policy and pointing the government at our licenses, the ability of physicians to help you get well and avoid morbidity and mortality has been severely compromised. It very well may take eliminating the “right” of the government to license physicians to stop these practices. The vested interests will set up the physicians in so many different ways to compromise their ability to stay in practice otherwise. Bogus malpractice case anyone? I used to evaluate other physicians malpractice cases for an independent practice association. Now I am beginning to wonder if at least one of the cases I reviewed was set up to go after a physician (who was really a great physician) Really, I didn’t even like him, but he was a really great physician.
