Contradiction of ‘Consensus’
A lobotomy is a surgical procedure which involves drilling through a human skull to severe the nerves connecting the prefrontal cortex to the thalamus.
The inventor of this barbaric experimental procedure was even awarded the Nobel Prize in 1949. Yes, that recently!
Miraculously, a few patients survived this medieval treatment but most patients died or were left permanently disabled. Despite such disastrous results, however, the lobotomy remained an approved treatment across the developed world for decades.
Time magazine published an article in 1936 entitled Lobotomy: Cutting the ability to worry out of the brain. And The New York Times ran glowing reports on the ‘operation to cure insanity’ in 1939.
By that point it had become professionally risky for doctors to question the use of lobotomies; after all, every ‘expert’ and ‘scientist’ universally agreed that the lobotomy was a safe and effective procedure. But without them, would we still be lobotomizing?
Why are doctors silenced, censored and discredited for sharing an unpopular medical opinion or warning about a treatment that contradicts the ‘consensus’? It is too easy nowadays to call someone a quack.
Surely we should encourage multidisciplinary collaboration in treatment of disease, as this can only benefit! We need to ask the questions around potential conflicts of interest among physicians, researchers, and funding sources.

Creating Conditions for Adrenal RegenerationTable of Contents ↑|
All chronically ill people have adrenal dysfunction and the adrenals regenerate in most cases when all relevant oxygen-related elements are addressed. Adrenal support (supplementation) is often necessary for months, sometimes for longer periods, during adrenal recovery.
