BY MODERN MEDICINE
The All About Book Series
by Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD ND
with Trueman Tuck, Rights Advocate
March 2005-Martix Vérité
Death by Modern Medicine identifies the tragic aspects of
a medical system, that, in its short history of about eighty
years, has managed to kill tens of millions of victims. Dr.
Dean's widely circulated paper, "Death by Medicine",
written for Dr. Gary Null in November 2003, was the first to
identify the extent of these casualties. Dr. Dean verified that
from 1990-2000 about 7.8 million victims suffered Death by Medicine.
Many people were shocked at this figure, but since then people's
eyes have been opened to the full horror of modern medicine.
There have been 140,000 fatal or near fatal reactions to Vioxx;
one third of the millions of women who took fen-phen, the weight
loss drug, suffered heart and lung damage; heart disease is
caused by Celebrex and all the other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory
drugs; Prozac is causing suicides and homicides as well as heart
disease; and the list goes on.
Death by Modern Medicine goes beyond the statistics of deaths
due to drugs to how the medical monopoly that created the system
in the first place is allowed to control health care. A tale
of propaganda, health care bureaucracy, the business of cancer,
our own personal addictions to sugar and drugs, and the denial
we all harbor to help us cope with the overwhelming burden,
are woven into this 360-page volume.
Dr. Dean is a published author and has written many books including:
Miracle of Magnesium, Natural Prescriptions for Common Ailments,
Naturally, The Everything Alzheimer Book and Homeopathic Treatments
Children's Common Ailments.
Dr. Dean and Trueman Tuck invite you to read their book Death
by Modern Medicine so that you learn to make "informed"
decisions about your own personal health and that of your family.
In Death by Modern Medicine we use the terms "traditional
medicine", "natural medicine", "natural
healing arts", and similar words to describe the kind of
medicine we support and envision. The terms allopathic medicine
and modern medicine are used interchangeably to describe drug-based
medicine that seeks to monopolize medical care.
For the record, the World Health Organization defines "traditional
"Health practices, approaches, knowledge, and beliefs
incorporating plant, animal, and mineral based medicines, spiritual
therapies, manual techniques, and exercises, applied singularly
or in combination to treat, diagnose, and prevent illnesses
or maintain well-being."
It is against our belief system to use terms such as "alternative",
"complementary" or CAM (Complementary and Alternative),
except when quoting. It is unfortunate that the medical establishment
and all too many of my colleagues who practice traditional medicine
have fallen into the habit of calling the oldest and most successful
form of healing by what are, in fact, demeaning names such as
"complementary" and "alternative". We must
always remember that allopathy is only a medical model born
of the industrial age and to suggest the oldest and most used
healing arts in the world are secondary to allopathy is not
only insulting but inaccurate as well. These traditional methods
of restoring and maintaining maximum health, by virtue of their
track record of safety and success, take second place to no
other medical model.
Chapter 1: Death by Modern Medical Doctors
I have endeavored to show that there is no real service of
humanity in the profession (of medicine) and that it is injurious
Medical doctors are licensed and regulated by their own medical
boards. Increasingly, these boards are populated with representatives
of the drug industry and doctors who are paid “advisors"
for pharmaceutical companies. Doctors themselves may have been
drawn to study medicine for a variety of reasons: humanitarian,
financial, and prestige. When I was in medical school, many
of my classmates had parents who were doctors; they were raised
in a medical world. Others, especially in the baby boomer age
group, grew up with the Marcus Welby and Dr. Kildare images
of a caring patriarch who was almost an extension of the family,
making house calls and adding a measure of common sense to every
Young medical students these days have been brainwashed by
movies and TV shows like ‘ER’. The drama of an EVAC
helicopter rescue of a severely injured accident victim, bleeding
and comatose, miraculously snatched from the grip of death,
is presented as the epitome of modern medicine. Surgically reattaching
limbs, reviving someone from a near-fatal heart attack, or saving
the life of a 2 pound 2 ounce infant, is modern medicine at
its best. Technology, autopsy, and forensics are played out
in film and television dramas and gone are the house calls and
concern for the patient who has any form of chronic disease
that won’t resolve within a one-hour drama.
We can safely say the high points of modern medicine are:
1. Emergency medicine
With a growing focus on the technology of:
4. Genetic engineering
