What Establishment Medicine Has Wrought (Updated Below, 1/27/19)

Just a follow-up on my post about my 86-year-old father, who had two strokes in 2013, has an arterial blockage, and my mother moved him to a “memory care” facility in September.

Since then, in November he was sick again and had a severe drop in blood pressure. They diagnosed it as probably a urinary infection. But he recovered from that. He hadn’t been able to move back to the memory care place because he has too much difficulty in moving and needs more than two people to help him go from wheelchair to bed and vice versa. And then this past week he has pneumonia and is on antibiotics.

As I wrote in my earlier post, I really believe that he wouldn’t have had the arterial blockage or the two strokes if he had not been given that statin drug, lipitor. As I wrote in that post, “It is my belief that such a drug that consists of synthetic chemicals has some kind of effect on the circulatory system, making changes to it in some way. (These articles, this, this, and this, assist me to reach that conclusion even if they don’t state that explicitly. But I tend to read between the lines on these kinds of things.)”

So in other words, we are dealing with this whole ordeal, especially my mother going through all this (they’ve been married for over 65 years), unnecessarily. Except these drugs are making the pharmaceutical industry a lot of money. And as I also have mentioned a few times, I am working on a lengthy piece on my own experiences with my medical ordeal from the late 1990s to the late 2000s, and the Establishment doctors who know nothing about nutrition and who really just want to give people drugs. I’ll have that post on here soon, I hope.

UPDATE: My mother has told me that my father has lost weight, because he’s not eating well. It has to do with his brain’s inability to let him know that he’s hungry, because of his Alzheimer’s. My mother doesn’t want him to be on feeding tubes, because whenever that has happened he tries to pull them out. The nurse at the nursing home has told my mother that he is in the last stage of Alzheimer’s, and qualifies for hospice care. So, she is now looking into hospice care for him. (UPDATE on March 16, 2019: He died.)
