We have some interesting and heartbreaking news in the world of medicine these days. There are references you should put on your “keep me updated list.”
You know, it was 1993 when the pharmaceutical world secured the right to advertise direct to the public and the growth of television advertising of drugs increased 4,000% by 1999. With the networks dependent on the revenue from these companies do you feel you get a fair, unbiased reporting of the news in the medical field? Do you think the demand from patients to their physicians for the latest and greatest “drug ad” change the way physicians treat their patients?
If you want information that is factual you have to dig for it and you have to be interested. If you fail to take the responsibility for checking out your medical choices you could drastically affect the outcomes you hoped for. In the case of vaccinations for children the most explosive news in years has gone unreported in the television media. A CDC scientist, William Thompson, went public with the news that he and his co-authors cooked studies on the MMR vaccine; they hid the fact that there was a connection between the vaccine and the occurrence of autism in vaccinated children. We knew this was the case from the hundreds and thousands of parents that observed the connection in their families. Add to your “keep me updated list” an investigative reporter Jon Rappoport to keep current on these facts and more with his site nomorefakenews.com.
A new diet drug has been released that has a hidden anti-depressant in it and suicide risk as a side-effect. You can find news like this with The Alliance of Natural Health USA, www.anh-usa.org. Dr. Maulfair advises his patients wait at least five years before taking any new drug as the release of the drugs into the population is, in itself, the research of side-effects. The clinical trials run by the manufacturers themselves open the door for false interpretations of the results and the trials are small and short lived. When the drug hits the American marketplace the side effects start appearing in the FDA data base, waiting five years gives you more security in determining if the risk of the drug is worth it’s use. Obviously if you had a serious health crisis it may make sense to try a drastic measure of taking an experimental drug. Dr. Maulfair also recommends some “old” tried and true medications whose complete list of side effects are well known and those that have far less risk.
For those of us who want to take more responsibility for the outcomes of health care choices The Alliance of Natural Health gives you a directory of organizations of physicians for you to search for their help in your city. Beyond self care there are health professionals and doctors who offer a wide range of treatments that are not drugs.
Citizen’s Council for Health Freedom, cchfreedom.org will bring you the latest in the changes in health care and Obama care updates. This is the news you will not see in the common media and the legislation that is proposed. This site is really a survival tool if you want to make your choices fully informed. Along with our friends, the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons, www.aapsonline.org, you will learn how doctors are changing the choices you have and opening clinics that are cheaper per procedure than those offering covered services. AAPS also gives you intelligent articles and updates on the legal status of various aspects of government health care.
One TV network reported the linkage between artificial sweeteners and adverse health problems. In line with our counseling of patients they explained these chemicals can ruin your digestive tract and are considered by the body as any toxin would be. Avoiding them is key to good health. There are low glycemic choices.
We find that the smartest choice at this point are health savings accounts combined with very high deductible plans for emergencies. Finding independent doctors in your town can be tough as the hospitals are employing most but it is still possible to find an independent physician through these resources.
We wish for you great health. Your best hope for a happy life is being healthy and not needing any invasive interventions.
This is different, not the same old “disease care”.
I want to introduce our services to you. I am an independent physician providing care to my patients for over 40 years utilizing many medical anti-aging and cutting edge treatment modalities. The only thing missing in our center is a heavy reliance on pharmaceutical drugs as a treatment; we do not need them as we stress health and returning the body to normal function. We treat underlying causes of health problems. We relieve symptoms, but symptoms are the road signs pointing the way to the underlying problem, not the health problem itself.
I understand the problems of aging, I have been taking care of people who want to be vital, full of energy and in charge of their lives as they age and face normal problems of approaching menopause, andropause and chronic illness. You need a medical philosophy and practice you can count on to work and IMPROVE your condition, without merely tolerating illness.
My father, also an osteopathic physician who was a founding doctor of the Allentown Osteopathic Hospital, now St. Luke’s Hospital, stressed the importance of vitamins and minerals and osteopathic manipulation in our home. When I finished medical school I was trained to diagnose, recommend the proper medication and do osteopathic manipulative therapy as well as minor surgeries, I was not trained in the importance of nutrition and nutrients. After some years in clinical practice and further training in radiology, I realized my patients were coming back with the same complaints. Drugs and surgeries did not address the real cause of their health problems. I decided to study and train from a different perspective. Health. A novel idea. What does the body utilize to maintain health and fight off the problems of aging and disease? I found numerous “alternative” “complementary” treatment choices I could offer my patients and actually see them return to health and maintain it.
My own parents became my patients for the last decades of their lives and lived independently and in good health until they were 93 when they each died after short months of care. They lived long lives in health without intense medical interventions.
This is the life I wish for my patients, my family, and myself. Join us, we have room for you.
Thanks to Jon for the exposure this news, it is vital for every family.

Update: CDC whistleblower in touch with members of Congress

August 27, 2014
In a recent video interview with Brian Hooker, Gary Franchi of nextnewsnetwork.com has elicited several pieces of vital information.
Franchi’s interview is headlined: “CDC Responds: Admits Omitting Vaccine Data.” It is available at nextnewsnetwork and at YouTube.
Brian Hooker, PhD, Franchi’s interviewee, is one contact for CDC whistleblower William Thompson. Hooker has published a re-analysis of the CDC’s fraudulent work on the MMR vaccine, showing that the CDC indeed buried the connection between the vaccine and autism.
In the interview, Hooker states that whistleblower Thompson is in touch with members of Congress.
Since Thompson was a co-author on a crucial 2004 study exonerating the vaccine, and since Thompson now readily admits that study was a fraud, a few members of Congress might actually listen to him and then make noises about the need to…

Our summer has been in the way of updating our posting and letting people know more about our very special patients and activities. We are always aware of how courageous and brave our friends and patients are when they reach out to change the course of their health and take the bull by the horns and actively seek to help themselves improve their lives. I have always said that my husband, Conrad is the bravest man I know. He practices medicine with active research and a willingness to find answers for his patients. He takes to heart..”first, do no harm.” He, we, have a lot of fun with our medical center and watching people change their health status. Our staff is great, life is good.
We joined a new group recently and became part of a lecture series that is so easy to access. Donna Kasuska, ChemConscious.com, is a chemical engineer who has taken her vast experience in the direction of helping people understand and change their relationship to chemicals in their lives. She included us in the WISH Summit series of bodyenlightenment.com on Spring Cleaning. They offer a wonderful series on the influence of chemicals in our lives in the collection of interviews and make them so easy to download and take with you to listen as you can. Listen while you make an organic meal for your family! Donna’s interview link is http://www.bodyenlightenment.me/blog/2014/06/welcome-to-our-wish-spring-cleaning-summit-first-up-how-much-toxicity-can-our-bodies-take-interview-with-donna-kasuska/ and my interview is http://www.bodyenlightenment.me/blog/?s=Colleen+Maulfair.
We hope your summer is full of family and friends and good food, good times. We visited Harper’s Ferry and saw the film America last week and recommend both to you. A very good start to month of America’s birthday.
Grab a Cup of Coffee – long article but worth it if you have diabetes or heart disease or want to prevent them.
IS CHELATION THERAPY AN OPTION IN THE TREATMENT OF CHRONIC DEGENERATIVE DISEASE SUCH AS ATHEROSCLEROSIS, DIABETES AND ARTHRITIS? Dr Conrad Maulfair, D.O.
Chronic degenerative diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes and arthritis are called chronic degenerative diseases because they persist over a long period of time. Once the diagnosis of arthritis, diabetes or atherosclerosis is made it is generally accepted by patient and professional that the disease will be present for the rest of the patient’s life. What may escape notice is the disease process began long BEFORE symptoms were present and the diagnosis was made. A particularly salient example of this is atherosclerosis. Often the first “sign” or “symptom” of this disease is chest pain, if the disease is occurring in the arteries in the heart, or leg cramps, if it is occurring in the arteries in the legs. It could also be a stroke or strokelet if the disease is present in the carotid arteries. Subsequent to appropriate diagnostic procedures the patient is declared to have coronary artery disease, or peripheral vascular disease (blocked arteries in the legs) or carotid artery disease (blocked arteries in the neck). While the symptoms may seem to appear suddenly and the diagnosis made in a relatively short period of time, the arterial disease process, which resulted in the symptoms and the diagnosis, started 20, 30 or 40 years earlier.
Let us briefly examine the important parts of this chronic disease process. Our body is composed of approximately 10,000 billion individual cells. They are designed to perform specific functions. There are heart muscle cells, designed to contract and pump blood throughout the body. There are blood vessel cells present in numerous layers including cells that line the inside of the arteries, muscle cells and elastic fiber cells, designed to transport the blood, carrying nourishment to every cell. Keep in mind that the muscle and elastic fiber of the artery pumps blood along with the heart. These cells, fibers can become stiff, thus hardening of the artery. There are liver cells and kidney cells designed to clean the blood. The health of our individual cells is important then, is it not? If our cells are healthy, we are healthy, if they are not, we are not. When numerous cells and other substances in the body incur damage over a long period of time, a disease, for example, atherosclerosis, is diagnosed. Damaged cholesterol, for example, is deposited in artery walls and is an important part of the atherosclerotic disease process. This process is ongoing for years and years before it becomes a problem and before obvious symptoms occur. The result of this damage is the cell’s inability to function normally, a decreased ability to protect itself and perhaps even death and destruction.
Damaged cholesterol is the main ingredient in plaque, NOT undamaged, normal cholesterol. Medical science has been studying this damage and destruction for many years. It is known that a significant portion of this damage is caused by something called free radicals. Free radicals are reactive molecules that cause damage to cells and tissues by robbing them of electrons. This can happen to the lining of your arteries. It can happen to cholesterol. It can happen to the genetic material, the RNA and DNA within the cells. Virtually anywhere free radicals are present, damage to cells or tissue can result. Damage from free radicals left unchecked day after day, week after week, year after year results in the inability of cells and tissues to function normally. Eventually destruction, decreased function and death can result. The symptoms of disease processes then become obvious.
It is doubtful there is a person in the United States over 40 who does not believe, with certainty, that cholesterol is bad and that it causes blocked arteries. Most people regard high levels of cholesterol in the diet and in blood akin to a death sentence from atherosclerotic disease. People believe high levels of cholesterol result in an increased risk of heart attack and stroke when it is only true that a certain type of cholesterol makes up a significant part of the plaque that blocks arteries. This is the LDL type of cholesterol. It is not generally understood that it is not the amount of LDL cholesterol in the body that causes the plaque build up, but rather DAMAGED LDL cholesterol that makes up the majority of the plaque.[i] In other words, when LDL cholesterol is damaged by free radicals, it is much more likely to stay in the artery wall. If the LDL cholesterol is not damaged, it is less likely to be deposited in the artery wall. One of the primary effects of a comprehensive chelation therapy program is the potential to reduce free radical damage thus protecting the cholesterol.
Calcium is an important mineral nutrient. As we all know it is an essential ingredient in healthy bones and teeth. It is also an important factor in properly functioning cells including muscle cells. It is well known that calcium becomes an important part of the plaque structure contributing to making it “hard”, hence “hardening of the arteries”. This form of calcium is called metastatic calcium. A study from 1944 in the Journal of Pathology discovered evidence of calcium in the walls of arteries, where it should not be, long before there was any plaque formation.[ii] Although calcium is one of the many nutrient substances is essential for a healthy body it can be destructive. Another important mode of action of a comprehensive chelation therapy program is lowering of minerals in the body including the metastatic calcium deposited in the body tissues where it does not belong.
Free radical damage can be accelerated significantly if the minerals iron and copper are present in the area where the damage is occurring. Toxic metals such as lead, cadmium, and arsenic can also contribute to accelerating the disease process and are also carcinogenic. Another mode of action of the comprehensive chelation therapy program is the removal of toxic metals and excessive iron and copper.[iii]
In summary, there are numerous damaging reactions that occur within the body at the cellular level resulting in the development of many chronic degenerative diseases including atherosclerosis. A comprehensive chelation therapy program is individually designed for each patient to treat or prevent the disease processes.
Let us explore the component parts of such a program. A properly prescribed, dispensed and monitored chelation therapy program is composed of three basic parts. The first part is the intravenous chelation treatment, which removes the metastatic calcium and the iron and copper which accelerate free radical damage. It also removes toxic metals such as lead and cadmium. The second part of the program includes specific nutrients, taken orally, that are essential for healthy cell function, and antioxidants as well as other substances to support and enhance the immune system. Mineral nutrients must be replaced. The third part of the program is diet and exercise. Educating oneself about the effects of free radicals and reducing free radical exposure is essential.
Numerous studies, evaluations, and medical papers have been written about chelation therapy over the past 40 years. Intravenous chelation treatments have been used for over 30 years with children to remove lead from the soft tissues of the body. It is extremely safe. Saunders medical textbook, Cardiovascular Drug Therapy, published in 1996, has a chapter dealing with chelation therapy and references 65 scientific articles.[iv] A recent study published in Evidence Based Integrative Medicine 2005; 2 (1), Insert footnote mark clearly shows evidence of the benefits of a comprehensive intravenous chelation program. People who had intravenous chelation therapy for vascular disease were followed for three years and experienced fewer cardiac events than people treated with bypass surgery, angioplasty or conventional medical therapy.
Studies have shown that millions of Americans are seeking alternative medical choices and relying less on the usual drugs and surgical medical modalities. It is encouraging to see that segments of the medical establishment are beginning to agree. A 1998 article in the American Journal of Medicine states “coronary arteriography (heart catheterization) is inadequate for assessing the severity of diffuse (many vessels) CAD (coronary artery disease)”. The authors also said that the adverse outcomes of invasive procedures such as bypass surgery and angioplasty outweigh the benefits when performed on patients who have good heart function. Their conclusion went on to say that this knowledge, which they gathered from 183 references, “… provides the basis for a shift in the management of CAD from an invasive procedure oriented viewpoint currently dominant in cardiology toward a non-invasive orientation.[i]
Chelation therapy is a safe, non-invasive treatment for, and prevention of, chronic degenerative diseases.

Vital information for all families…we get calls from people wanting off these drugs every week. People know they do not help and they are the source of many ailments they did not have before the use of psychiatric meds. Please pass this on to your friends. Jon has many interesting articles on this subject!

In court, the tide may be turning against psychiatric-drug damage.
A recent jury decision, in which Dr. Peter Breggin testified as an expert witness, highlighted the extreme danger of the drugs.
The civil case was filed on behalf of a boy diagnosed with autism, who was then dosed with antidepressants and anti-psychotic medications (Risperdal and Zyprexa).
The boy developed two conditions, called tardive dyskinesia and tardive akathisia. Dr, Breggin’s website (www.breggin.com) depicts these conditions:
“Tardive dyskinesia describes a group of persistent or permanent movement disorders caused by antipsychotic (neuroleptic) drugs including Risperdal, Zyprexa, Invega, Abilify, Geodon, Seroquel, Latuda, Fanapt and Saphris. In addition to typical tardive dyskinesia spasms and twitches of his face, eyelids, and tongue, the youngster developed a severe case of tardive akathisia involving torturous internal agitation that drove him into…
