I had a dream ...
I once had a dream that medical doctors were individuals who cared about their patients with compassion and empathy.
I had a dream that my colleagues would be happy when they were presented for patients who had recovered much better than expected.
I had a dream where physicians would be passionately interested in their profession, constantly trying to improve their treatment results.
I had a dream that doctors would be curious, becoming happy and interested when presented to new promising treatment methods.
I had a dream that medical research institutions prioritized human needs before economic motives.
I had a dream that the medical authorities always would be on the search for new, promising therapies, just as football clubs have talent scouts watching the junior series in order to find the best future professional players.
In my dream doctors would feel proud, secure and independent, without fear of being harassed by media and corrupt medical authorities.
I had a dream that the encounter between patient and doctor would be looked upon as a sacred place, where only the science, intuition, love and understanding had access.
I had a dream that therapists would be rewarded rather than punished if they could cure a patient.
I had a dream of a true universal medical science, where there is no division between conventional and alternative medicine.
I had a dream, where experts speaking in public would know what they were talking about, and check facts before they speak.
I had a dream, doctors could reason logically and would be able change their views if challenged with new facts.
I had a dream, that as a doctor, you would never be forced to sacrifice the well-being and lives of your patients in order to fit into the system.
In short, I had a dream that we would have a decent health care system and medical science.
I have been incredibly punished because I tried to live up to my dream during my medical career, but I have not given up.
The Inquisition, which killed thousands of witches in the Middle Ages is still alive and kicking. It has only changed its master from the Church, to Big Pharma.
The Faust Syndrome
I dare to say that >90% of all doctors rather let 1,000 patients die a painful death than to risk their reputation by contradicting the very narrow guidelines established by the medical authorities. The remaining percentages are likely to be unemployed, defamed and without authorization ...
Like the protagonist Faust in Johan Wolfgang von Goethe's famous novel, most of the doctors have signed an agreement with the devil, where they can get power, fame and success, if they just sell their soul.
We have been degraded from being respected, independently thinking researchers to "drug soldiers". Through threats and financial sanctions, we are forced to execute orders from above without questioning, just like soldiers in a war.
Before the abolition of death penalty, soldiers had two simple options:
1. Become a soldier and obey orders without questioning.
2. Get shot as a deserter...
Doctors have to:
1. Follow the corrupted orders of the medical authorities without questioning, or...
2. Let their career, economy and rumor go to hell.
I did not choose this profession in order to be forced to become a murderer, and I am dreaming wet dreams about a society where I could practice decent medicine without risking my life and reputation. In my even wetter dreams, I would even be rewarded for it...
My own experiences...
I once attended a course on how to cure back pain by using some simple, manual techniques. You just had to release a chronic tension in two muscles in the deep pelvis. Then these muscles no longer compressed the nerves coming out from the lower part of the spine. This in turn, usually led to an immediate, dramatic improvement.
I first did not believe that it was possible to achieve so excellent results with such a simple and harmless method. Anyway, I tried it on a few patients, with to my surprise, an astonishing success. I became enthusiastic and wanted to show this to my colleagues. Only 2-3 out of 60-70 were interested. It did not matter if they saw a patient leaving their crutches behind, jogging out of the treatment room. They rather denied the obvious reality they could perceive with there own eyes, in stead of risking their reputation. Most GP.s would probably meet at least one patient every day who could benefit from this treatment.
My colleagues were not as enthusiastic as me. They did not dare to risk being punished and ridiculed by the authorities and their colleagues by trying something new.
Instead of using the method, some of them choose to report me to the medical authorities for malpractice....
Beating Big Brother in court...
At last, it all ended up in court. I collected more than 200 scientific references confirming the validity of my treatment, including state of the art double-blind studies from some from some of the most famous clinics in the world. My research also showed this method was known already 1936. We found a scientific study from Sweden demonstrating a 600 % reduction of sick leave. The medical authorities had not collected one single piece of scientific evidence. They only had their professor titles. Me and my lawyer won the case in court. If it would have been a football game, it would have ended 20-0 to us!
The empire strikes back
When they could not take me in court, Big Pharma went to Mainstream Media! They made it look like as I was only interested in finding a reason to sexually abuse patients. The fact that I had many hundreds of patients being healed from chronic pain conditions and that the method was completely harmless and could save billions of euros every year, did not matter at all.
My economy, rumor and career went down the drain. The possibilities to do anything productive in mainstream society were effectively killed.
Roots from ancient Greece
I later learned that a similar treatment ideas were used already by the physicians of Alexander the Great in the ancient Greece/Macedonia. One of the reasons that Germany won the World Cup in Rio 2014 might have been that the physiotherapists of the German national team used a similar method. I have made a simple, free instruction video on youtube on how to heal yourself and your friends on
