Hello everyone! I hope your week is going well. It has been very hot and humid here this week. Hurricane Nate came within 2 hours of us, but we weren’t affected. Most people probably never knew Nate, a category 2 hurricane, even came to the Louisiana Mississippi area. There was very little media coverage.
I hope you were able to enjoy the online presentation of The Truth About Cancer symposium. It was great as always. I never cease to be amazed at the information the speakers bring to the forefront. The Truth About Cancer is the best movement to come our way in a long time. I wish everyone would listen and follow the protocols set forth. We could shut down the poison centers if we would. I would love to attend the symposium in person. Maybe one day I can.
We have a friend who has been having some severe pain in her chest. Last week she went to her general practitioner who prescribed Nexium. She continued to have problems and ended up in the ER last Wednesday morning. They admitted her to the hospital for observation that day.
Instead of releasing her that evening as planned, the took her by ambulance to a hospital about twenty miles south of us where they have a cardiac unit. This is the same hospital that my mother was in when she supposedly had a-fib. They are the ones responsible for damage to my mom’s stomach due to drugs. We’re still dealing with issues almost 4 years later.
When I heard she was being transferred there, I was very concerned. I would have much rather them send her to Jackson. The lady’s daughter told me they requested Jackson, but the doctor in Brookhaven said he felt confident in the other hospital. Who works for whom? The last time I checked, the doctor works for the patient and their family. It’s the patient’s right to call the shots. If the doctor doesn’t comply, fire him and get one who will.
So, they take her to the hospital down south. They did a heart catheterization. They found 95% plus blockage in 4 arteries. They scheduled surgery for Tuesday, the 10th. Why wait so long for such a serious situation, you may ask? Because the surgeon was leaving town and would be gone all weekend.
In the meantime, what if something happens? They kept her in the hospital, but there was no surgeon available if there was an emergency. They said if anything happened they would transfer her to New Orleans. There are a couple of problems with this plan. 1) If things get bad, she may not make it to New Orleans. 2) Hurricane Nate is scheduled to hit land around New Orleans as a cat 2 hurricane. So, what are the options?
The lady’s daughter talked to the general practitioner to get some advice. This was on Friday and he told her if it was his wife she would be in Jackson and would have already had the surgery. So, the daughter began trying to get a transfer to Jackson. I was there while some of this was taking place, and it infuriated me. You wouldn’t believe the things I heard them say.
They supposedly called St Dominic’s, which is the best cardiac hospital in MS, and they refused to take her. They called it a “lateral transfer,” meaning she was leaving one hospital to go to an equal hospital. Well, with the surgeon out of town, the hospital down south was not equal to St Domonic’s. They said if they did a lateral transfer, Medicare may not pay their part. So they tried University Medical Center also in Jackson. They received the same response. The tried Baptist Hospital and all was the same.
So, because they may not get their money, they left a 74-year-old woman with 4 blocked arteries sitting in the hospital waiting for the surgeon to get back in town. Never mind that she could have had a heart attack and died. Never mind the family’s wishes. It’s all about the money. They kept her doped up on morphine to relieve the pain. This isn’t benefitting, just covering up while she waits. When they finally did the surgery on Tuesday, there were 5 blocked arteries instead of 4. Thank goodness for prayer. Without God’s hand on her, there’s no telling what could have happened.
While we were there on Friday, a social worker came in to discuss the transfer. The lady assured the social worker that everyone had treated her very nicely. The social worker said they do their best to treat people great. Before she could finish her sentence, I said under my breath to my mom, because they want you to come back. That’s exactly what she said. They want you to need their care and come back. If they were there to heal, you would have no need to return to their “wonderful” care.
This story serves to prove that the medical field is all about money. They don’t care about you. It’s sick care, not healthcare. If you are healthy, you don’t need them. If you don’t need them, they make no money. Another example of this happened to my grandfather last week. He had a sore throat and went to the doctor. He didn’t have fever or anything. They gave him a shot of antibiotics and a prescription for the same. While he was there he asked for a prescription for the same blood pressure meds my grandma takes. He has heart irregularities when he over works and he has been taking a piece of one of her pills each time this happens. I have strongly advised against this and given suggestions. He doesn’t have high blood pressure. In fact, his blood pressure runs on the low side.
They prescribed him the blood pressure medication without any questions asked. They didn’t run tests on his heart or anything. They just prescribed the drugs because they asked for it. There is a doctor’s office here in our town that all you have to do is call and tell them you want a prescription for such and such and they call it in for you. Do you want to tell me they care about you? No!!! They don’t care about anything but your money!
I am so thankful that we were introduced to the natural health field in 2010! Before, we were as brainwashed by the medical field as everyone else. Hopefully now we can avoid some of the pitfalls everyone else is falling into.
On Monday of this week, my mom and I started a thirty day challenge. We are practically following the ketogenic diet for the next thirty days. We want to detox, lose weight, and just get our bodies healthy. I’ll keep you posted on our progress.
If you are looking for a natural health doctor, I am available in person and possibly via video call to help anyone I can. I am not a medical doctor. I am more of a counselor. I use muscle testing to determine what your body needs or doesn’t need. I have seen my own family, including my dog, benefit from what I do. My Amish clients have benefitted greatly from what I do. The young Amish girl I wrote about before is doing so much better that she now has a job. So, if I can help you, please contact me. My contact info is on my website.
