IS PHARMACEUTICAL MEDICINE A FORM OF HUMAN SACRIFICE?




"...Many modern diseases are, in fact, created by fiat (not unlike modern currencies): age-old symptoms of nutritional deficiency or chemical poisoning are repackaged and renamed in Latin and Greek as would-be monolithic disease entities, and subsequently rolled out to the consumer as new markets; each disease representing a veritable gold mine of "treatable" symptoms; each symptom providing justification for the prescription of a new set of patented, toxic drug-commodities.

The "medicines" themselves are often devoid of intrinsic value, being nothing more than rebranded and re-purposed chemicals, intended (though all too often failing) to be administered in sub-lethal concentrations. Indeed, many of these chemicals are too toxic to be legally released into the environment, much less be administered intentionally to a human who is already sick...

Within the present dominant medical system, healing has not simply been forgotten, but intentionally exorcized, as it represents the antithesis of perpetual profitability which requires the incurability of the human body. Were the truth to be told, and the body’s self-regenerative capabilities acknowledged, the entire superstructure of drug-based medicine and hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue it generates annually, would crumble overnight.

When a handful of turmeric has more chemotherapeutic activity than any drug yet to receive FDA approval, or an enzyme from pineapple is superior to a 40-year-old blockbuster chemotoxic agent, one begins to understand why the hundreds of studies proving natural substances can destroy cancer are never discussed. You can’t compete with free, effective and safe in a medical marketplace dominated by expensive, ineffective and unsafe...

Given this unseemly state of affairs, some believe we are on the precipice of a medical end-of-times or “Pharmageddon," if you will, where medicine is no longer directly associated in any way with healing, but rather is a form of mass control and a highly organized means of simultaneously defrauding the public of its wealth and health...

After all, is there any greater absurdity than a medical model that treats the symptoms of disease with sub-lethal dosages of toxic chemicals and in which there is no attempt to uncover, understand or remove the causes of those imbalances?

After all, what disease has ever been found to be caused by a lack of a drug?

Is acid reflux caused by a lack of proton-pump inhibitors?

Is heart disease caused by a lack of statin drugs?

Is osteoporosis caused by a lack of Fosamax?

Is cancer caused by a lack of chemotherapy?

Is depression caused by a lack of Paxil?

Absolutely not!

Then why would anyone consider it sound practice to use potentially toxic chemicals as a first-line treatment for conditions that are not caused by a lack of a chemical? To the contrary many diseases are caused exactly by culminative exposure to toxic chemicals that not unlike drugs are biologically alien to the body. We are treating poisoning with poisons!

Can we dignify this approach by calling it medicine? Or, is it more accurately described as a form of sorcery?...


The Greek word, Pharmakon has the following meanings: “drug, poison, potion, charm, spell, enchantment." But the origin of the word goes back much farther:

A Pharmakós (Greek: φαρμακός) in Ancient Greek religion was a kind of human scapegoat (a slave, a cripple or a criminal) who was chosen and expelled from the community at times of disaster (famine, invasion or plague) or at times of calendrical crisis, when purification was needed. [Source: Wikipedia]

The sacrificial dimension of the Pharmakós carries on in the nostrums and potions later named after this ritualistic object:

The term "pharmakos" later became the term "pharmakeus" which refers to "a drug, spell-giving potion, druggist, poisoner, by extension a magician or a sorcerer." A variation of this term is "pharmakon" (φάρμακον) a complex term meaning sacrament, remedy, poison, talisman, cosmetic, perfume or intoxicant. From this, the modern term "pharmacology" emerged..."
