Legal request to Pacific Legal Foundation

Another request to a legal foundation, mailed by the Social Work Center at St Anthony’s in order to document the mailing, has gone unanswered. Was it ever received by the Pacific Legal Foundation’s National Litigation Center? Requests , multiple, to the Southern Poverty law Center as well as numerous private legal firms have never received acknowledgement.

Please read the document below and if you think this effort to create freedom of speech for physicians is worthwhile, contact the Pacific Legal Foundation. Or, even if the mailed request was never delivered and it would be helpful to establish this possibility for other applicants, so tell them it would be helpful to allow requests they have received but have turned down or cannot fund to be posted on line so their financial supporters know which kind of cases they turn away. This may help with their fund raising efforts.

Multiple Sclerosis Defeated by Terry Wahls MD vs Medicare Part D

A professor of internal medicine at a US medical school flunked multiple major conventional medicine treatments for her progressive multiple sclerosis. She relearned her biochemistry and designed her own nutritional treatment and added neuromuscular electrical stimulation resulting in freedom from wheelchairs.  How many physicians have heard about Terry Wahls so they can recommend this approach to their newly and previously diagnosed multiple sclerosis patients ?

The Wall Street Journal on May 1, 2015 had a front page  article titled “Small Number of Drugs Drive Big Medicare Bill”. Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.’s multiple sclerosis drug Copasone was one of the more expensive products.

This is a prime example of why I do not support Medicare Part D. I find that there are outstanding reasons to follow Terry Wahl’s lead to look back to nature and our own biochemistry to find solutions to the majority of health problems our fellow humans face. By the time someone has followed conventional practitioners advice to the bitter end, their health has often not permitted them to remain employed  and they cannot afford  the costs of the healthier diets.

To effect change, we need citizens to become involved in the process where by research grant moneys are given out in the medical schools that the states own. There needs to be sunlight on the financial conflicts that decide what research is performed. To this end, many biochemists are trained but few get tenure. If tenure decisions are based on your ability to bring in corporate funding, this is a penny wise pound foolish decision when it prevents the possibility that our scientific knowledge is not being put to work to keep people well, as Terry Wahls’s story demonstrates. Our publicly owned medical schools and their research labs have been hijacked to enact corporate profits. Potentially, a state owned school partners with a corporation to co own the patents?  Then, the resulting drugs are marketed with medicare Part D forcing all taxpayers to pay them.

Where are these  PhD ‘s biochemist now? Couldn’t they be allowed to crowd source funding  for biochemical research trials of natural foods in the treatment of disease as partners with residency medical training programs with relatively modest funding?  Reversing atherosclerosis with the use of foods high in vitamin K 2 is one relatively easy project that comes to mind. Certainly, the expensive cholesterol lowering drugs have shown to be virtually useless for reversing atherosclerosis and dangerous to boot. Medicare Part D needs to be ended so all that  loot Big Pharma has stolen from us cannot be used to manage  elected officials’ ability to get reelected.

Switching to Libertarian advocacy: Empowertexans.com

After many attempts to ask the ACLU for advocacy I am now turning to conservative organizations. Following the spirit of “The truth at any cost lowers all other costs*” I decided to approach this fiscal conservative taxpayer’s organization for networking/advocacy. I thought their philosophy noted on their website 

“ensuring the greatest amounts of economic and personal liberty, and promoting public policies that provide individuals with the freedom to use their strengths and talents in pursuit of greater opportunities”

would allow this to be a desirable contact. One of my most stated concerns is that corporate influences on the practice of medicine results in physicians misdiagnosing causing much unnecessary prescribing. since I believe the medical board of texas has been documented to have allowed corporate influences to interfere with the licensing of physicians, this should fit.

My first three attempts to use their contact form on their website (from three different IP addresses) resulted in DNS  and here is a scan of the hard copy.      CCE05012015

why am I putting this here….the first two times my contact effort rejection was received… it was taken off my email records but I didn’t do this. fortunately, this AM I was at a site where I could print off a hard copy to get scanned in. The april 29th document has already disappeared by this afternoon, but not the one received this AM. Odd

then I tried to forward the rejection directly to Greg Harrison at empowerTexans.com but the sent email ended up in my inbox and did not show up in my sent box at first. later, it disappeared from my inbox and did show up in my sent box.CCE05012015_0001

So, I had another person check by sending a contact request via an additional IP. His was successful but , of course, did not include my email address. So, now I sent an email to Michael Quinn Sullivan, one of the most influential persons in Texas, and received a return email very quickly. Hmmm, his organization is not really very interested in the topic I present. Any ideas from the public of conservative organizations that do care when physicians’ voices are shut down?  CCE05012015_0002

Is the licensing of physicians a political tool?

http://www.volokh.com/2013/10/02/doctors-public-condemnation-homosexuality-lead-medical-board-investigation-doctors/   libertarian law professors discuss actual published study

Last year, the Annals of Internal Medicine published the results of a survey (below) questioning if a physician who made an assertion about homosexual behavior on an Internet discussion site should be investigated…..60% of state licensing boards responded affirmatively.

Hmmm, what about in states where the population is overwhelmingly opposed to gay rights? Would you want the government to be able to investigate a physician for making a statement in favor of gay rights? That knife cuts two ways. We either have freedom of speech…or…we don’t.

Annals of internal medicine published study

Before a physician can even apply for a license the individual must have met college level prerequisites, completed a 4 year (or equivalent) medical college degree and completed a one year internship. That is a lot of hours of supervision. True, some physicians get through the licensing process and some eventually commit felonies and lose their license. The fact remains that the license can and is being used to control free speech. California physicians went all the way through the Federal Court system to fight for the right to discuss and recommend medical marijuana to their patients.Conant v._McCaffrey decision Now, many states have medical marijuana laws. Why do we try to control a medicinal herb that used to commonly be available and is much safer for chronic pain than narcotics? so the drug companies can keep physicians pushing their products and use the government to control their licenses.

 

there are libertarian think tank/legal foundations willing to look at licensing issues and I am willing to approach them.

Nov 17th 2004 testimony in the Texas house of Representatives:2 1/2 months before leaving Texas

Image

I was the first speaker and my testimony begins after the first 4 minutes and extends for less than 10 minutes. While it has been 10 years since this event, I recall a question by Senator Jane Nelson that appears to be edited out and other information included that I doubt I stated. Unlikely I would recount my personal medical experiences for public viewing. I believe I mentioned William Dement MD by name while holding up his book as a reference.

Help me locate Sister Helen Prejean: January 12, 2013 email

To this email, I did not receive even an automated response.

Dear Sister Prejean,
With the recent setback on ending the death penalty in California by initiative, my approach to stopping the enforcement of the death penalty needs to be urgently evaluated. As far as i can determine, this approach of showing the courts that the education of the board Certified Forensic Psychiatrists actually leaves them disqualified under the Americans with Disabilities Act right to experts both competent and experienced has never been tried. Since their education lacks exposure to key areas of medicine, such as sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea, possibly all pending death penalty cases could be placed on hold. Faced with lawsuits over the failure of state licensing boards to have determined the competency of these experts and having depended on a private entity (Boards of medicine specialties are privately owned), many states may choose simply to negate the issue and outlaw the death penalty. I believe that the small business lobby could be recruited to help this effort since it can be shown that there is a cost of mis-educating all physicians that is borne by those purchasing health insurance which is dramatically influenced by physicians’ failure to make accurate diagnoses on a timely basis, thus resulting in the use of drugs with dramatic side effects and repeat hospitalizations.
I await your response patiently.
sincerely,
Cynthia Jeanne Lee MD

Dear Sister Prejean,

I wish to bring to your attention a tactic that I have not seen utilized to halt the use of the death penalty. It may be used to quickly stop the death penalty in all jurisdictions.

I became aware of this issue as a physician experienced in sleep disorders experiencing silencing by the medical board of Texas. Their “expert”, board certified in forensic psychiatry, admitted that she “knew almost nothing about sleep apnea”. I began wondering how a physician without experience in medical disorders could render judgement on a person affected by both oxygen and sleep deprivation. Furthermore, there are numerous other medical disorders that are not adequately covered (or, in some cases, not covered at all in advanced psychiatric texts)  so that the physician so instructed would never even suspect the accurate diagnosis. Among these are periodic limb movement disorder and mild to moderate hepatic encephalopathy ( short of being comatose). The amount of research that is pertinent to understanding human behavior from organ dysfunction that never makes it into prominent textbooks is truly amazing.

Sister, while some attorneys, even specialized in criminal law, believe the Americans with Disabilities Act does not apply to their clients, I do not believe that this attitude would prevail. Certainly, all mitigating factors, including medial diagnoses that affect judgement and reasoning, have to be presented to the court before a death penalty can be meted out. The fact that physicians licensed by states, on the word from a private entity like a medial specialty board, often controlled by pharmaceutical interests, but with crucial information redacted from their education, have been allowed to be presented to the courts as experts “competent and experienced” is surely a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. I would have personally tested this issue in federal court except for the fact I was stalked out of Texas while attempting to make such an effort.

I would like to initiate this dialogue with you hoping to network with individuals who could effect this change. While I believe that humans do not have the right to cause another human’s death, especially under government fiat, the above tactic make be able to stop death penalties from being effected until human culture can evolve to where it needs to be this to be fully accepted. If you would like to send my information on, please do so and feel free to clarify my wording with additional comments.

Hoping to hear from you at your earliest convenience,

Subject: Fwd: Using the ADA requirements for an expert competent and experienced to halt use of death penalty

 

Dear Sister Helen Prejean,

Please allow some time in your busy schedule to consider the merits of this argument to shut down the death penalty based on Americans with Disabilities right to competent and experienced experts. I know you visited and endorsed the concept of Occupy and the injustice of our current economic political climate. The concepts included in the original email would go a long way to bring about needed change in our criminal justice system as well as influence the health care system. After all, the right to access experts competent and experienced is a right for anyone with an illness as well as anyone involved in the court system.

Dear Sister Prejean,

I wish to bring to your attention a tactic that I have not seen utilized to halt the use of the death penalty. It may be used to quickly stop the death penalty in all jurisdictions.

I became aware of this issue as a physician experienced in sleep disorders experiencing silencing by the medical board of Texas. Their “expert”, board certified in forensic psychiatry, admitted that she “knew almost nothing about sleep apnea”. I began wondering how a physician without experience in medical disorders could render judgement on a person affected by both oxygen and sleep deprivation. Furthermore, there are numerous other medical disorders that are not adequately covered (or, in some cases, not covered at all in advanced psychiatric texts)  so that the physician so instructed would never even suspect the accurate diagnosis. Among these are periodic limb movement disorder and mild to moderate hepatic encephalopathy ( short of being comatose). The amount of research that is pertinent to understanding human behavior from organ dysfunction that never makes it into prominent textbooks is truly amazing.

Sister, while some attorneys, even specialized in criminal law, believe the Americans with Disabilities Act does not apply to their clients, I do not believe that this attitude would prevail. Certainly, all mitigating factors, including medial diagnoses that affect judgement and reasoning, have to be presented to the court before a death penalty can be meted out. The fact that physicians licensed by states, on the word from a private entity like a medial specialty board, often controlled by pharmaceutical interests, but with crucial information redacted from their education, have been allowed to be presented to the courts as experts “competent and experienced” is surely a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. I would have personally tested this issue in federal court except for the fact I was stalked out of Texas while attempting to make such an effort.

I would like to initiate this dialogue with you hoping to network with individuals who could effect this change. While I believe that humans do not have the right to cause another human’s death, especially under government fiat, the above tactic make be able to stop death penalties from being effected until human culture can evolve to where it needs to be this to be fully accepted. If you would like to send my information on, please do so and feel free to clarify my wording with additional comments.

Hoping to hear from you at your earliest convenience,

Cynthia Jeanne Lee MD
