“You can either start on treatment A or treatment A, your choice.”
A bit confused, the patient studied both options long enough to realize they were exactly the same.
But instead of protesting he reluctantly mumbled, “Treatment A please.”
In certain health scenarios there aren’t a lot of alternatives, but for Covid this isn’t the case. Or is it?
Using a recent explosive article, I’ll seek to answer this question. Because doctors facing mounting pressure deserve to have a voice.
Medical Licenses on the Line
A new report from the de Beaumont Foundation encourages state medical boards to revoke the license of any physician spreading misinformation about the Coronavirus. They see it as a violation of their oath, possibly referring to “do no harm.”
What data source does it mention as providing inaccurate and misleading information? The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
There’s only one problem. The CDC itself uses VAERS on an ongoing basis.
Moving on, it states there isn’t evidence that the following help with treatment:
- Prescription drugs like Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine
- Over the counter supplements like Vitamin D and Zinc
Is that true? Not according to hundreds of studies for Ivermectin alone. 22 countries have adopted this one medication for early treatment.
Surely they have smart researchers in their countries too.
This report isn’t too surprising if you’ve been following non-mainstream news the last couple of years. Especially with the knowledge Big Tech has been involved in a concerted effort to fact check anything related to the virus.
And since we’re on the topic of media.
Health and Human Services (HHS) Advertising
The Blaze Media obtained documents through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that HHS paid to promote the Covid vaccine.
Who received funds?
- Digital media companies
- Cable TV news stations
In terms of both efficacy and safety, the content hundreds of them put out was consistently positive.
There’s a reason drug manufacturers have to ruin their commercials by providing a depressing list of side effects. It’s called transparency, plus there’s rules in place for the safety of the public.
But apparently the vaccine is the only treatment that works 100% of the time.
Last year Congress set aside $1 billion to “strengthen vaccine confidence in the United States.” Interesting that our hard-earned tax dollars would go to limiting patient choice.
These funds could have done a lot more good if they’d built up both traditional and alternative medicine in combating a real disease. But I’m not an elected official, so my opinion must remain my own.
Shifting gears to something more positive.
Good News for Doctors in Certain States
Getting wind of the shifting tide against front line doctors, a number of states have enacted bills. These protect medical practitioners from any disciplinary action after treating patients for Covid.
- New Hampshire
If you’re a doctor outside these states, I hear the weather in all of them is amazing this time of year!
It’s unfortunate that the heroes of the virus are being vilified and censored when many just want to see their patients healed. They wouldn’t use alternative treatments to the vaccine if they didn’t work right?
I mean, they didn’t get through medical school by not thinking critically.
Unless you know someone currently in the medical field, you can’t fully understand the pressure they’re under. And that is before they have to worry about losing something they worked so hard to achieve…their license.
So if necessary, I’ll be the “bad guy” to give them a voice. Because alongside nurses, they were God’s instruments in healing my blood cancer.
No, Free Speech Isn’t Dangerous
Our nation’s founders believed that free speech was worth protecting. Why?
Can you imagine if we’d stayed under the rule of kings and wanted to say something contrary to his medical recommendation? Yea, it probably wouldn’t have gone over well.
Writing this article and you reading it is an example of free speech. You sharing your thoughts on social media is another example. These are things that make America awesome!
Of course there are those who seek to profit by swindling customers of their money via false treatment options. Like an advertisement saying, “Buy my random product with a handwritten label that may or may not be vinegar.”
Safe to say this product wouldn’t help against Covid.
But a few bad actors doesn’t justify a blanket covering of anything deemed “misinformation” by those with possible conflicts of interest.
A patient-first mentality should also be adopted by our government health agencies since it’s expected of those who practice medicine.
Seems only fair!
