7,000 deaths occur each year due to medication errors in hospitals!
12,000 deaths occur each year due to unnecessary surgery!
20,000 deaths occur each year due to other hospital errors!
80,000 deaths occur each year due to nosocomial (this word pertains to a hospital or infirmary) infections in hosptials!
106,000 deaths occur each year due to adverse effects of properly prescribed medications!
This equals 225,000 deaths due to “iatrogenic” causes, which means that these deaths were caused by surgeons, hospitals, drug prescribing physicians and prescription medication. Iatrogenic causes are the third leading cause of death behind Heart Disease and Cancer!
These statistics were published in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and was originally written by Barbara Starfield, MD, MPH.
So What Can You Do? Seek options to prescription medications, avoid surgery if possible, and stay out of the hospital because that is where the sick people are! (NOTE: please do not stop taking your medications without the guidance of a skilled physician).
Medications are important as they have saved countless lives and help people by managing symptoms of disease and illness. However it is important to note that disease and illness are not caused by a deficiency of prescription medication!
We are trained and experienced in the art and science or helping people manage their medications and we even write prescriptions when necessary. But we are also successful at helping people reduce or eliminate those medications, as this is a goal of most of our patients.
There are many safe and effective treatments available for most all conditions that are not associated with drug related adverse side effects. Why take a second drug just to treat the side effects of the first? This approach is not “Health” care at all, it is technically “Disease” care. Drugs are fine for short periods of time to get symptoms under control, but in many cases the long term use of drugs is simply not necessary.
In order to experience real “health” care it is important to visit a physician who is trained and experienced in Integrative medicine. This type of medicine combines the best of naturopathic, homeopathic and conventional medical methods for optimal benefits and results. This is the best type of medicine and is provided daily at Arizona Prohealth.
