Corporate Sponsorship for Selling Sickness – The Age of Delayed Degenerative Diseases
 

As a society we are living longer today than in past generations. Longevity into the 90’s is now becoming commonplace in most industrialized societies. But, what is the cost: are we simply delaying degenerative diseases? If so, will the financial / quality of life have a massive impact on a system already in dire need? We know what is coming: disease is proliferating globally at a rapid pace. To those affected, it will mean hardships, but on the flip side, it is an optimal opportunity to sell sickness with corporate sponsorship--pharmaceutical companies will team with big corporations, while supported by doctors and the health care system. Selling sickness to healthy people is the next trend in health care.

Even in 1986, the Milbank Quarterly predicted this trend: Since the mid-nineteenth century, longevity has increased, but at the cost of degenerative disease replacing infectious disease. Now, life is more about postponing degenerative disease than avoiding infectious disease. The Rockerfeller Foundation went on to report that due to the exploitation of natural resources, "human civilization has flourished but now risks substantial health effects from the degradation of nature's life support systems in the future."

This provides an ideal opportunity for corporations, rather than practitioners, to drive the conversation on disease. To quote a BMJ article: "There's a lot of money to be made from telling healthy people they're sick. Some forms of medicalising ordinary life may now be better described as disease mongering: widening the boundaries of treatable illness in order to expand markets for those who sell and deliver treatments. Pharmaceutical companies are actively involved in sponsoring the definition of diseases and promoting them to both prescribers and consumers. The social construction of illness is being replaced by the corporate construction of disease."

We at Doctor's Choice stand to be counted in opposition to this alarming trend. Rather than allow fear mongering, we are advising healthy prevention. When the sickness campaign gets underway, turn away from these lies and corporate profiteering, and instead invest in your family's health by eating organic, taking professional quality nutraceuticals to keep you healthy, and changing the mindset from the ear of sickness to the excitement of health. Both sickness and disease start within the mind, and depending on the pathway of choice, either to healthy living or to lifetime dependency on pharmaceutical drugs with side effects. We say no to selling sickness and yes to selling health.

Consumer Checklist to Ensure Supplement Quality 

 

Customers often ask us, "If a product is licensed shouldn't it be high quality and therapeutic?" Ideally, it should be, but all products are not created equal. Because of the different sources of raw materials, NPN licensing simply becomes window dressing. It hides the real issue and creates empty hope for those who are suffering and seeking natural relief.

When pursuing quality, price is often reflected in what you pay. When the price seems just too good to be true, the bargain may actually cost you more than the higher quality version.

Almost all raw materials are produced in China, where quality is suspect. For more info on this, see the Kastel testimony linked here. Over 80% of vitamin C is from Chinese origin, and produced by GMO corn. Price is the priority, not quality--products are manufactured quickly and for the cheapest price. When the package costs more than the contents, are you really saving money and improving your health? If you are buying supplements in big box stores or the dollar stores, don’t expect miracles, and if it has a natural product number (NPN), that is no assurance: you get what you pay for.

Supplements that are produced to be marketed at the lowest possible price seek the wrong objective. If seeking therapeutic value is your desired outcome, then quality is worth every penny paid, whereas cheap supplements that pass through without cellular delivery just become expensive urine.

Many older women today are at risk. They are taking calcium supplements like Caltrate to prevent osteoporosis, and it’s not getting absorbed; instead, it’s causing calcification of the arteries and the brain in the form of plaque, which is responsible for calcium spurs. This medical condition is known as hypercalcemia, and the primary cause is hyperparathyroidism (overproduction of parathyroid hormone by the parathyroid glands). An overabundance of the wrong form of calcium in the diet, and an excess of non-absorbable vitamin D, can worsen the condition.

Many people today have become skeptics: do the supplements they take actually work? In this article, editor Kiera Butler questions the point of taking vitamins, since many overpromise and under deliver, or worse.

I think that is a great starting position, and believe everyone taking supplements should be questioning everything they take.

Below is a list of things we at Life Choice can check off our own list (click to enlarge); it could be useful when considering which supplement to go with.
