Could the cure be creating the disease?

I'm writing about the cause of the ever-growing cost of our National Health Service and its degeneration.

My case history of ankylosing spondylitis was of a calcified repetitive strain injury (RSI) of the spine. My condition may have been generated by RSI, but was sustained by a pharmaceutical drug that made it impossible for me to recover my health naturally.

Conventional, or allopathic, medicine must be the cause of the growth of chronic conditions such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease throughout the 20th century.

This school of medicine has succeeded as a business because it relieves the early symptoms. However, in the long term, it produces a chronic spiralling exaggeration of the original symptoms, and then causes a biological addiction because the body's natural reaction against drugs is to fight back with the opposite biological effects - which are, of course, the symptoms that the drugs are suppressing.

MS and Parkinson's, as we know them, must be illnesses caused by allopathic addiction. Important aspects of this form of addiction are a susceptibility to the symptoms, a long-term reactive effect of the drugs and the autosuggestive effect of allopathic diagnosis.

The causes of the original problems in these conditions are quite easy to determine. In the case of MS, it appears to be stress shock or stress fatigue (to which those who get it are susceptible) and, in Parkinson's, it is the other way around. This disease occurs in people who have adapted successfully to a high-stress situation over many years (for example, the former world-heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali) and whose health has become dependent on it, and who then have this stimulus too-suddenly removed for their health to adapt successfully.

This explanation is supported by an experiment carried out in Honolulu, which found that drinking coffee prevented Parkinson's. Naturally, such a mild stimulant could not prevent the chronic symptoms of the disease, but it would artificially sustain the stress stimulus that prevents them from occurring.

I think that the history of the NHS' spiralling costs justifies an investigation into the cost of allopathic-medicine addiction. It seems to me that everyone would benefit from a full, public investigation into this subject. - David Dixon, Letchworth, Herts
