Special: Real Medical Dilemmas for Doctors & Patients (airs April 27, 2015)
Every day, millions of people use blood-thinning drugs to prevent blood clots. Every day, millions are given statins to “reduce their cholesterol”, even though statins reduce vitality, immunity, and well-being. Every day, patients are told that they will die unless they take drugs endorsed by the medical field and promoted by a high percentage of doctors.
What if your family thinks you’re crazy because you don’t wish to follow what the medical field suggests you do? What if, despite inconclusive tests, a doctor insists that you should be taking aspirin, statins, and anticoagulants? For an unwell person – for example, someone who is experiencing debilitating angina symptoms, or taking medications such as Coumiden for blood clots – it can be difficult to know who to listen to. Who is correctly interpreting the evidence? It is a serious medical dilemma.
What if the current standards for taking blood pressure are wrong, and the established infrastructure and methods are giving us the wrong readings? Furthermore, what is the true cost of getting the wrong readings – and who do you talk to for the right ones?
Thankfully, if and when we discover that the standard practices are outdated and incorrect, there are pioneers who have developed more advanced ways to get your real blood pressure data.
It's Rainmaking Time!® has delved deeply into the health and wellness arena for many years. Sometimes it is not enough to hear from different guests about their different solutions: we need to bring them together to offer definitive solutions to people in need. To that end, we have invited the pioneers of our time to guide us through this medical dilemma: Dr. Gary Gordon, Dr. Marc Sircus, Dr. Thomas Levy, Dr. Steven Hickey, and the father of cardioretinometry, Sidney Bush.
