Speaking the Truth in Science & Medicine – OHR #404

Symbol shows Speaking the Truth in Science & Medicine

Greetings all!

I am concerned.

Science and good medicine are about finding facts and that process often requires dissenting opinions until the truth is found. No one has a monopoly on the truth, but those who want only “their” truths – so they can control and manipulate us will censor honest discourse. This is being done now on a massive scale.

If you look at the history of medicine, very few of the “truths” of history have been borne out. Doctors would bleed people, claimed eggs caused heart disease, margarine is good for you, and a thousand other myths through the ages.

So regarding censorship, look at this Tucker Carlson clip and if it doesn’t scare you as much as me, you’re in dreamland.

My wife and I lost a lot of family in Nazi Germany and Communist Russia during the government purges that occurred there. Their tune was the same as the one being sung by YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Google: “We know the truth and that is what you will get. No opposing views will be allowed, so we will protect you from them.”

It’s time to speak up.

If we don’t it will be too late.

Have a great week.

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into LifeWorks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
