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.

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.
New campaign to enlist small business to end BigPharma/Insurance control of your health care:Stop Obamacare
Watch more employers off shore more jobs or find ways to make full time employees into part time employee
Watch the pharmaceutical and insurance interests gain more control over your physician’s mouth
Watch more very expensive and often more dangerous procedures come into common use
Watch more suppression of alternative health care ideas
Enlist the small business lobby to help end financial elite control over physician education and licensing
Small businesses frequently have windows directly to the public or mailing lists of their clients
They have to directly pass on the high costs of health care insurance to you
Restaurants will understand: Your food should be your medicine Hippocrates
They are a competing business interest with standing before the court when there is a Sherman Antitrust Act violation or a RICO violation asserted to end elite control over licensing.
Support the Institute for Justice’s lawsuit challenging the State of North Carolina’s assertion they can end free speech on the Internet if a nonregistered person dares to help other diabetic patients with a paleolithic diet approach to good health! Tell them to challenge the special interest control of medical education too.

Ending special interest control of physician education and licensing: Avoiding a Class Action but Achieving Results
For too long the pharmaceutical industry and insurance industry has managed your medical care for their profits and not for your benefit. Rigged science, rigged textbooks and bought professors have been used to convince physicians to use materials and methods that do not benefit patients so much as pad profits of hospitals, insurers and pharmaceutical companies. They have violated the Sherman Anti-Trust Act and the RICO statues keeping physician whistleblowers from speaking out safely.The climate is ripe for those persons and groups of persons most affected to end this farce. Small business lobbies, civil rights groups, environmentalists and the coalitions to protect the disabled can form a block to press successful legal actions.
What do each of these groups have to gain from opposing special interest control of the physicians that are licensed by the government?
Small businesses have paid high health insurance costs that I believe may be as much as three times what they would have been. Large corporations just shipped their manufacturing and other personnel costs overseas as much as possible.*
People lost their elders to illnesses that went undiagnosed or were misdiagnosed. The family’s savings went into inappropriate medical care. The Black community has been especially ravaged by the failure to recognize the high incidence of obstructive sleep apnea, resulting in excess strokes, cardiac events, and accidents. All communities have been affected though.
Civil rights groups would like for the death penalty to end. Demonstrating that the experts, forensic psychiatrists who were unaware of the effects of sleep and oxygen deprivation on human behavior, were clearly not expert despite being certified so because their education was so affected by special interests
Environmentalists now express concern over the side effects of pharmaceutical agents pouring into our water. Not even you can avoid the traces of harmful agents in the municipal water supply. If the misdiagnosing had not happened, the waters would not have the degree of contamination.
The disabled population has been swelled by the enormous increase in persons judged mentally ill. The numbers of persons suffering physically disabling events, like strokes, cardiac events, and auto accidents has swelled because the misdiagnosing prevented more appropriate actions. The huge increase in autistic individuals will strain the tax base.
Why do I think we should avoid class actions? I believe this mechanism has been misused to head off the rights of large numbers of individuals. If these groups could provide amicus for my legal actions, they could obtain the information they need to decide on the proper future actions and provide oversight of the actions of my legal representation to be sure no inappropriate filings or other inappropriate actions occur so that these groups obtain the information needed.
