  1. @RealityCheck @TWR @greenmood Why do you dislike my post? You don't like the fact that cases are increasing but deaths are in a decline since May? I truly don't understand why anyone would dislike this....do you want more deaths? Help me understand your logic.
  2. I just think people slammed me for posting the facts about mask (from our training and from the manufacturer) but they still give me a thumbs down and try to discredit me by giving what they already knew but are just falling what the masses are telling them to do. Also, we are so proud of following EBM but we don't follow it or care about it when now? How about H1N1 2009 pandemic? Did we have mandatory masking? NO! I just think it is funny people follow around with their heads cut off but don't actually look at their facts, knowledge, background, etc. The mask is a false sense of security, most people will break the 6ft distance rules, they touch the nasty contaminated mask 1,000 times a day and spread germs, etc. It is like wearing a white coat but never washing it. You are literally making the issue worse by no adhering to the standard protocols of masking. These mask are not to be worn for more than 8 hrs (pending on the manufacturers guidelines), they are not oil resistance and they do not protect against Covid or airborne diseases. The benefit is to make sure we are all still thinking for ourselves and from our training not from the media or other sources and to not belittle people that challenge the status quo. Does that clear up some of the points you were seeking? Here is a link that I quickly looked up about surgical mask as someone commented on and thought they were being a smarta$$ about wearing a mask in surgery. https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/personal-protective-equipment-infection-control/face-masks-and-surgical-masks-covid-19-manufacturing-purchasing-importing-and-donating-masks-during https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/personal-protective-equipment-infection-control/n95-respirators-surgical-masks-and-face-masks#s4 Q: Is there a difference between a mask and a respirator? A: Masks and respirators both cover a wearer’s nose and mouth, but they differ in several aspects. Masks are loose fitting and may not provide full protection from breathing in airborne pathogens, such as viruses. Face masks (non-surgical masks) may not provide protection from fluids or may not filter particles, needed to protect against pathogens, such as viruses. They are not for surgical use and are not considered personal protective equipment. Surgical masks are fluid-resistant, disposable, and loose-fitting devices that create a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and the immediate environment. They are for use in surgical settings and do not provide full protection from inhalation of airborne pathogens, such as viruses. Surgical masks are not intended to be used more than once.
  3. Advice from doctors personal interviews that were posted on FB or Youtube does not discredit them. There is a INCREASE in cases and a decrease in deaths. The masking started several weeks ago or even longer so why the increase if the mask are so effective? Not talking about treatment by any means. I interpret the data fine, I am just stating there is no EBM on masking and you all should know that surgical mask to not stop Covid or TB etc. There are doctors on news channels stating the same thing. But you will want to hear what you only want to hear. It saddens me that a lot of health care providers don't step back and think about cloth mask, etc....They should only be worn by sick people or immunocompromised patients. I never worn a mask in a room (when I was not sick) with a patient that had cancer that was wearing a mask to protect themselves. I have never seen any doctor do this in my 10+ years and during rotations.
  4. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/ Scroll about half way down to the New Cases of Covid graph and New Daily Deaths Covid graph. Interesting that most people haven't seen this online or on TV per our last discussion on here about making. I was attacked by several people, PAs making false claims about masks, deaths, quoting the Lancet (was recently found guilty and retracted a article on hydroxychloroquine). Not looking at all sides as it is being reported that Covid deaths are attributed to any comorbidity. Look up the Illinois State Medical Director speaking about this or Good Morning America or other doctors on youtube being pressured to put covid on the death certificate. Lastly if the masking is helping so much then why are we getting a huge increase in cases?
  5. Ok...act professional. I am one of the rural, country folks and that stupid mask will not save you, wear a respirator around 24/7 then we can talk plus eye protection and gloves and gown....wear the same thing you would wear around anyone with Covid... yes my rights were fought for and not I am not being told I must wear a mask. Whats next? What I should eat, listen to, who I should worship, what day I should worship....
  6. We have had virus kill 10,000's of thousands per year per the CDC (it is called the flu). Sorry, but my rights and liberates are not on hold, if you think your face mask is going to protect you then wear it. Is this another herd immunity theory? Come on, you should no better that these mask are not protecting us from the virus. Would you wear any of these mask (non-respirators) into a room with a patient with possible Covid or TB (air borne diseases)? This is not our best defense and there is no EBM to even back your claims on this....if you can smell anything through that mask you are wearing them you can get Covid. Why do we get fit tested for the N-95s?
  7. Those pro-life protesters are usually very violent church-goers....better watch out for them. At least you can get your CCW now in the state of New York. Good luck!
  8. It explores the disease that needs a pill or intervention. Doesn't explore other aspects such as nutrition (we got so much of that in PA school), whole body approach, "alternative" therapies that aren't lead by the pharma industry. I was never told even once about prevention on HTN, just how to lower it and other risk factors. These are just simple things that are missed. As well as the body is put into different "boxes" which is totally not true. We have different specialties for everything. You don't think your diabetes is affecting your joints or your gut is affecting your depression? This is what I mean. I think you are missing the point or haven't researched functional medicine to understand it fully. Let me know if you have questions and I will be happy to answer then or point you in the best direction I can.
  9. I agree! Quality of life is much more important than quantity (in my personal opinion). I would rather live 5 good years then 10 bad years.
  10. Please don't be a little Sh*t stirrer. You can see I said " Don't know your entire story". I think it would be rude to ask him about his medical history over the computer, that is why I did not (so that doesn't mean I was not listening to him, just trying to be respectful). Giving someone more options (NOT opinion) to better health is a bad thing? I think you might have your medical practice backwards if that is condescending... we are here to first do no harm and make people better in health...a opinion would be telling him that if he ate clean, and meditated 12 times a day he would not have gotten cancer. That is something you are basically stating I did. If you don't have a true comment please don't come into threads and stir sh*t.
  11. Sorry for your diagnosis of MM, I hope you are doing well. Also, sorry you misinterpreted my words, I understand it is hard to get a true context of one’s words from a quick comment. I made a comment on general functional health NOT on treatment or “a diagnosis online”. That is where you might be taking the wrong way. Everyone should be taking a functional approach to their health: a clean diet (organic, local, minimally processed, etc), cut out or change as many exposures to chemicals as you can from your daily life (from dryer sheets to candles to soaps to air purifier, etc), look at genetics and SNPs, go to a Western PCP, but also utilize others such as chiro, massage, meditation, acupuncture, personal trainer, etc so you can get a well rounded look at your body. I don’t see how this “alternative agenda” is a bad one? Please correct me if I am wrong (supporting local clean farmers/restaurants, exercise, optimizing vitamin levels (due to our food not being nutrient dense), having a clear/as stress-free brain as possible. I take your rude comment on my agenda personal as this is what is wrong with Western medicine. I make a comment about TRUE health and you lash at me about having some agenda like I am Hilter. Come on man, you are wise enough to think outside the box and know that this is NOT a “alternative agenda.” These tips I gave you can help pre and post cancer, disease, etc. This is not treating a disease, it is healing the body. That is the difference. Again, I am sorry you took my words the wrong way and hope you can tell I am coming from a place of love and care, nothing else. P.S. there are two sayings I like; “What gets measured gets managed” and “Genes load the gun but your environment pulls the trigger”
  12. I agree. That is why I see Functional Medicine as solving these problems, not just maintaining a disease. History and time is very important to eliminating a disease. "Crazy people have issues too."
  13. Don't know your entire story and frankly sounds like you would never allow "alternative medicine" to help you since there is "no proof" of it. Living in a state of uremia is from a cluster of symptoms, we just put a fancy name to it (a diagnosis) but not is the root cause(s). Root causes and basic functional approaches was all I was talking about, not treating symptoms and trying to optimize, not normalize your body (i.e. a Vit D level 40 is normal, but not optimal to most peoples health). I didn't even mention about genetic testing, SNPs, etc. but sounds like we will get no where with this discussion so I will end it here. The best of luck to you!
  14. Great read! I hope you keep seeking answers. Never give up. I agree that if the doctors and other providers don't have a name for a "symptom or symptoms" then they deem it not real which is such a ignorant thing anyone could do. One should learn from past history and not keep repeating it by this manner. I would encourage you to look into further testing such as food sensitivities (we do eat all day ever day; leaky gut/leaky brain/leaky liver), heavy metals, mold, infectious/stool (CMV, EBV, tick borne, parasites, bacteria), dental (amalgam, cavitations from root canals or improper pulled teeth) would be a great start. Functional Medicine and Biological Dentistry could help you. Duckduckgo search engine my afford you more answers than other search engines as well. I hope this truly does open some doors and you find help. You are always welcome to PM me as well. Keep up the writing. I truly enjoyed reading that.
  15. Try Functional Medicine, look into the root cause of the issue, not trying to figure out a diagnosis from a cluster of symptoms....
