Many have seen stories in recent months covering the mysterious death or disappearance of a large number of doctors practicing homeopathic or alternative medicine. Despite how one feels about the legitimacy of this story, or the claim that this group is somehow being targeted, it is important to understand the treacherous and deceitful history behind the origins of modern medicine in this country.
With the rise of awareness to the truth of holistic remedies such as CBD oil, that have been proven to cure or at the very least successfully treat cancer, many Americans have began to stray away from traditional “pharmaceutical” western medicine. This is seen as a serious threat to a multibillion dollar industry. If one thinks that the major investment groups behind the pharmaceutical industry could not possibly be capable of a massive campaign to stop or slow down the rise of holistic medicine, let’s take a look back at the beginning of what Americans see as “traditional western medicine.”
In the early years of the American empire, when their was still a free market in the medical field, there were many thriving homeopathic hospitals and medical colleges. Over a century ago the Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations decided to engineer the medical curriculum through their grants and donations to the many different medical schools they deemed could be profitable for their associated businesses. As they have done with most facets of American society, they decided that they would reform medical education in America to suit their financial desires. There were many different types of medical schools from homeopathic and herbal, to what we know today as modern western medicine. The Rockefeller and Carnegie foundations sought to patent the petrochemical medical education as the sole practice in the United States. The natural health colleges were not pushing enough chemical drugs, and those drugs were primarily owned by the Carnegies and the Rockefellers.
So out came the authorized preordained Flexner Report, funded by the two foundations, that called on American medical schools to enact higher admission and graduation standards, and in so many words, stated that it was far too easy to open a medical school. This report was used to shift from holistic to pharmaceutical practice. The American Medical Association, who were evaluating the various medical colleges, made it their job to target and shut down the larger more respected homeopathic medical colleges. Carnegie and Rockefeller began to immediately shower hundreds of millions of dollars on the medical schools that focused on teaching drug intensive medicine.
Carnegie and Rockefeller made sure they had their own staff appointed to high positions on the board of directors of these schools. They made sure these schools were teaching the curriculum they dictated or they would not “donate” the millions that the schools so obviously wanted. Over time they began to fill these boards with members who were literally on the payroll. Once they had entire control of the board, the curriculum of these schools began to swing completely in the sole direction of pharmaceutical drugs which were exclusively sold by Carnegie and Rockefeller, and it has remained that way ever since.
Predictably, the schools that had the funding of these foundations turned out the “recognized” doctors that were taught to push pharmaceutical drugs instead of holistic treatments, even if the holistic treatment could work better, or would cost less. By 1925, 10,000 herbalists were out of business, and by 1940 over 1500 chiropractors were prosecuted for practicing quackery. The 22 homeopathic medical schools that flourished in the 1900s dwindled down to just two by 1923, and by 1950 all the schools teaching homeopathy were closed. In the end if a doctor did not graduate from a Flexner approved medical school, he or she could not find a job. Most doctors today do not even realize they are lap dogs of the pharmaceutical industry.
Looking back on the history of the medical field in this country, and seeing the many egregious acts of the American government in recent years, it should not seem outside the realm of possibility that there is foul play at work within the medical field. At this point, all the American people can do is spread any information that arises and continue to ask questions. When the mainstream media is silent, behind that silence is the news.
