Doctors versus You. Who is Better at Curing You?

I watched two very interesting videos today. Both perfectly align with my thoughts on the title of the website: clueless doctors. It is not so much that they are clueless–albeit many really are–but  rather that they are helpless.

Quick: name one medication that cures any illness:___________________

If you cannot name one, nor can any doctor. So if doctors prescribe medications that do not cure your disease, what the heck are the medications for and why do we go to see a doctor anyway? Granted, on those occasions when you break a bone or need a surgery, yes, those may be “cures” but note those are not medicines. We do not have any medicine that cures an illness. What medicines take away are our symptoms until our bodies heal themselves.

The video above is by a doctor describing that doctors can only treat symptoms and why. All medicines treat only symptoms.

Medicines that may actually cure, like for example a new drug for Hepatitis C that was just FDA approved, are impossible to pass by the medical industry because of their price. And they are so expensive because once you are cured, you won’t need them anymore! So they must include in the price of each drug the cost of losing you as a future patient as well!

Here is another video, this one from TEDx, in which the doctor explains if medicine is really helping you or killing you.

I think medicines do more harm than good. I will enjoy your thoughts and comments!

Both videos are posted originally on and I shared from there.

About Angela A Stanton, Ph.D.

Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist focusing on chronic pain--migraine in particular--physiology, electrolyte homeostasis, nutrition, and genetics. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention, and treatment without the use of medicine. As a forever migraineur from childhood, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic variations of all voltage dependent channels, gates, and pumps (chanelopathy) that modulate electrolyte mineral density and voltage in the brain. In addition, insulin and glucose transporters, and several other variants, such as MTHFR variants of B vitamin methylation process and many others are different in the case of a migraineur from the general population. Migraineurs are glucose sensitive (carbohydrate intolerant) and should avoid eating carbs as much as possible. She is working on her hypothesis that migraine is a metabolic disease. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and her helping over 5000 migraineurs successfully prevent their migraines world wide, all ages and both genders, and all types of migraines, she published the 2nd (extended) edition of her migraine book "Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide: How To Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medications". The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraine cause, development, and prevention, incorporating all there is to know. It includes a long section for medical and research professionals. The book is full of academic citations (over 800) to authenticate the statements she makes to make it easy to follow up by those interested and to spark further research interest. It is a "Complete Guide", published on September 29, 2017. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in Economics with dissertation in neuroscience (culminating in Neuroeconomics) at Claremont Graduate University, fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers, certification in LCHF/ketogenic diet from NN (Nutrition Network), certification in physiology (UPEN via Coursea), Nutrition (Harvard Shool of Public Health) and functional medicine studies. Dr. Stanton is an avid sports fan, currently power weight lifting and kickboxing. For relaxation (yeah.. about a half minute each day), she paints and photographs and loves to spend time with her family of husband of 45 years, 2 sons and their wives, and 2 granddaughters.
