Worse than a Disease Diagnosis – Is the Medicine Choice!

PCOS Lady:
READ THIS PLEASE….
It effects everyone today… Take an interest in your care and the ones you love… SERIOUSLY!
~ This article proves what i have been telling you!
~ Advocates are needed for some of you, seriously!
~ I decided to post the resource list below to show the sites and who is concerned…
~
By Dr. Mercola
~
In 1776, Dr. Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, foretold a grim scenario that has now taken shape right before our eyes. He said:
~
“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution the time will come when medicine will organize itself into an undercover dictatorship. To restrict the art of healing to doctors and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic.”
~
Now, in 2012, we are very much facing this reality, as we live in an era where our medical freedom is increasingly under attack, and “healing” has been replaced with “treating” disease, most often with toxic chemicals and surgery. This drug-driven medical paradigm not only depends on the sacrifice and, some might say, torture, of animals in medical research, but also in many ways uses humans as sacrificial lambs.
~
Modern Medical Care is a Leading Cause of Death
~
There were nearly 4.6 million drug-related visits to emergency roomsi in the United States in 2009, with more than half due to adverse reactions to prescription medications – most of which were being taken exactly as prescribed…

Story at-a-glance
~ We live in an era where our medical freedom is increasingly under attack, and “healing” has been replaced with “treating” disease, most often with toxic chemicals and surgery
~
~ Conventional medical care is a leading cause of death, often causing humans to sacrifice their health instead of improving it
~
~ The drug-based medical model depends on belief that your body needs chemicals to stay well; if we all embraced our bodies’ innate healing potential, the drug-based, disease-treatment medical system would crumble
~
~ Until real systemic change takes place, your best health strategy is to employ and maintain a naturally healthy lifestyle that will optimize your body’s innate healing abilities and minimize your need for drugs, surgery and conventional medical care
~ ~ ~
~ ~ ~
NOTE:
~
You may be tempted to point your finger at your physician. After all, he or she is on the “front lines” doing most of the prescribing and advising. But whether or not doctors succeed in upholding the Hippocratic Oath — the promise to Do No Harm — is not always entirely in their own hands.
~
The conventional medical system is simply not designed to give them that freedom. It’s VITAL that you understand that regardless of their personal opinions, many times they’re simply not allowed to offer you any other alternatives than what the “standard protocol” demands. As written on GreenMedInfo.com
~
As the article so eloquently points out, none of these arguments hold up, and most are based on medical and pharmaceutical industry propaganda. If they were TRULY concerned about patient care and safety, they would not be targeting natural medicine, which has an incredibly low incidence of adverse consequences and proven successes, but instead going after their own allopathic medical practices that are leaving a trail of death and destruction.
~
Other medical associations whose claims that they exist for the betterment of public health are entirely questionable include the following:
~
~ American Dental Association (ADA)
~ American Cancer Society (ACS)
~ National Cancer Institute (NCI)
~ American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)

2004 AACE PCOS (priority) Guidelines –

Posted in AACE tagged , , , , , at 12:21 am by PCOSLady

New PCOS Treatment Guidelines…

from:  www.PCOSCoach.com

2004 AACE
~ ~ ~
Endocrinologist’s New PCOS Treatment Guidelines
~
Finally, a major medical association has stepped up to call for more aggressive treatment of PCOS also known as polycystic ovary syndrome.  This new report should help with the epidemic of uninformed doctors who still see PCOS as a minor cosmetic complaint.
~
The American Academy of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) issued a statement recently advising doctors to take PCOS seriously.   After decades of treating PCOS as a cosmetic or fertility issue doctors are now advised to address the metabolic and cardiovascular risk factors associated with PCOS.
~
“Data has been building up for the last 15 years,” said Rhoda H. Cobin, MD, chair of the AACE task force on PCOS.  “This is the first time anybody has put everything together and come forward to say, ‘we need a call to action.’ “
~
The AACE is to be applauded as the first professional society to come out with a statement pushing doctors to recognize the underlying medical risks in PCOS.   The organization is calling for “widespread case finding” of PCOS, along with screening and treatment for the hidden risks of the condition, including myocardial infarction, stroke, and the complications of uncontrolled diabetes, such as retinopathy, kidney failure, and amputation. PCOS may also increase the risk of high blood pressure and atherosclerosis.
~
Early PCOS treatment can reduce risk of early death and debilitating complications.   What are the most effective treatments for PCOS?   Lifestyle modification including exercise, controlled eating, and tobacco avoidance are very important to future health, according to the experts.
~
While metformin, also sold as Glucophage. is now recommended as the drug of first choice for treating PCOS, there are many treatments that do not have the sometimes difficult side effects of metformin.   Studies on diabetics have shown that real lifestyle changes such as exercise and diet can have a more powerful effect than metformin.   In 2001 the AACE began recommending that women with PCOS be screened for diabetes by age 30.
~
Insulin resistance occurs in at least 75% of PCOS sufferers.   The AACE recommends that women with PCOS be evaluated for insulin resistance including low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL), increased triglycerides levels, hypertension, and insulin resistance with increased risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
~
The Nurses’ Health Study followed 116,000 women aged 25 to 42 years for eight years.    Women with irregular periods had an increase in the incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus of 2.0- to 2.5-fold in women with a history of irregular periods.   About 80% of women with irregular menstrual cycles have underlying PCOS, according to the authors of the AACE position paper.   Treating PCOS effectively can make a significant difference in how women feel about themselves in addition to improving overall health.
