Aside from business savvy, a purpose, the desire to be successful, proper funding, marketing knowledge, management skills, the humility to know that failures always bring you closer to success, and the wisdom to see it through, starting any business will, most probably, be a slam dunk. Uh oh! Did I mention you need ‘product’? Well, you do. If you want to open up a jeans shop, you’re going to need jeans in all sizes. If you want to open a restaurant, you will need food. If you start an online store, you’re going to need items to sell. Are you getting it. Did you realize that when doctors begin a medical practice, they need sick people and lots of them? As a matter of fact, they’re going to need chronically ill patients so that you keep coming back.
Talking about doctors, how will they keep you coming back? Addictive medications is one way. Another way is by offering you medications that have side effects; this way, they will have to treat those nasty side effects with more medications. To top that, you’re going to have to keep coming back to get new prescriptions. Do you seriously believe that your doctor or psychiatrist want to tell you that you are healthy and don’t need them? Really? OK, I’ll admit that there are some…a very small minority, that aren’t test and medication happy; however, I’ve yet to meet one. I was a nurse for 27 years, working with doctors all the time. Over all that time, I met just one with compassion and balance. That doctor, however, had compassion on doing needless female exams when women didn’t need them. He was a pervie with compassion. Just remembered another one who was doing a D&C on a woman and commented to all of us in the OR…….he said, ‘she’d be loving this if she were awake’ (as he was inserting an instrument inside her). Now that I think about it, there was this one other doctor…no 5 other doctors…wait a minute, there were dozens of doctors that shocked me by their indifference, greed and promoting sickness, suffering and more sickness.
If any of you trust your doctor, you are on a very dangerous road if you don’t do your research and don’t get other opinions.. Medications that are life saving, are, unfortunately, a necessity. Those that addict you are not! It’s your doctor keeping you sick and snowballing you right to death. It happened to me and all the people who come to our ministry…those individuals we help for free. Please do your homework. If you have pain, anxiety or depression, there are wonderful alternative therapies to antipsychotics, antidepressants, benzos, sleeping meds and others. Please be an informed consumer with your medical and psychiatric care, remembering always that doctors and psychiatrists need patients in order to keep their businesses alive and kicking. Don’t be a victim.
