What will medicine look like 30-50 years from now?
Do you think all of your problems could be solved? Will the cure to cancer exist?
Will we be perfectly healthy, happy creatures?
What would access to medicine 30 years in the future do for you?
PLOT TWIST: THE FUTURE IS HERE!!!
Mainstream medicine is 30-50 years behind new medical advances and technology.
Diagnoses, cures, and all the likes already exist.
You just haven’t heard about it.. yet (if ever).
Mainstream medicine, government organizations, and lobbying corporations all prevent you from receiving the medical care you need.
Source: I’ve dealt with chronic pain for the past 1+ year. I’ve unfortunately had to do lots of research to treat myself, and the truth is shocking…
In today’s article we will break down why you haven’t (or won’t ever) hear about cures, treatments, and other new medical advances, and what you can do to get around that.
Mainstream Medicine is Regressive and Counter-Productive
It would seem that for whatever reason, people can’t handle change.
I’m not sure why this is. I guess when you’re perfectly healthy, you don’t have to be open to new ideas.
Having dealt with chronic pain myself, I can admit that I’ve tried some crazy shit just to be healthy.
People are suffering, but the healthy aren’t motivated to fix them.
Or, there could be $ involved, or people are just inherently fucking stupid. I don’t know, but for whatever reason, people tend to not accept change.
Question for you: When was PTSD officially recognized as an official medical issue?
Was it after World War I?
Perhaps World War II?
C’mon, definitely not the Vietnam War, right?
Hint: Mainstream medicine is regressive, and resistant to POSITIVE CHANGE.
The first moon landing was in 1969.
The Vietnam War ended in 1975.
Oh, but PTSD wasn’t officially recognized until 1980.
Despite millions of combat veterans and other trauma victims suffering from PTSD, the APA (American Psychological Assocation) didn’t recognize PTSD until fucking 1980.
23.5 MILLION Americans alone served in WWI, WWII, and the Vietnam War.
There were more than enough people to study, diagnose, and treat PTSD, but mainstream medicine did not help our poor young men during these times.
Until 1980’s, PTSD “didn’t exist.”
The same government that sent young men to wars failed to support them upon their return.
Unfortunately this is a world-wide issue. The same is true for Germany, Russia, the UK, France, and every other country that sent young men to fight.
Don’t Trust the Masses OR Your Neighbor
Do a bit of research. PTSD for example was “controversial” when it was first announced.
What the fuck? 2 world wars, a never-ending Vietnam war, and we somehow can’t recognize PTSD?
This type of insanity is exactly the reason you should never trust the mainstream.
Imagine telling a soldier off for having PTSD. You’d get punched in the face, and everyone around you would join in on the beating.
But tell a soldier off for having PTSD 50 years ago, and the same masses agree, as if somehow the soldier is “weak” for having watched his brother’s brains get blown out.
This post isn’t about the past. We need to practically apply this knowledge IN THE NOW.
What conditions exist now that people deem “crazy?”
What treatments may already exist (cure for cancer??) but are being suppressed by huge government organizations?
I don’t know about you, but I’m not willing to wait 50 years for cures.
I want perfect health NOW.
The point of this article is NOT to aggravate you about a fucked up past.
It’s to remind you that medicine is at least 30-50 years behind, and so if you or a loved one are suffering, the diagnosis/treatment already exists.
You’ll just be called crazy for going against the mainstream (until everyone changes their mind 50 years from now).
Comfort > Newness, the Brains of the Masses
Most people crave for comfort over happiness, success, and abundance.
I’m not entirely sure why people aren’t 100% open-minded to new treatments and diagnoses, but the fact is they are.
So we gotta deal with it.
The only thing I can speculate about is that people crave comfort.
Diagnosing people with PTSD changes the mass’s view of the world.
It forces humanity to confront the reality that hmm…. maybe the world isn’t such a perfect place, and it does need change.
People couldn’t admit that war could be that bad perhaps. I don’t know.
The thing you need to take away here is that the mainstream is 30-50+ years behind.
Why that is, I don’t know. But it is as it is.
So if you want to do great things, or are suffering from a complex condition, don’t expect the mainstream to support you.
Now of course, if you have something basic like a common cold, then the mainstream will fix you up.
If your condition has been extensively studied for 50+ years, odds are the mainstream will take care of you just fine.
Even then though, I warn you to be cautious.
Walk into a psychiatrist with “depression,” and you may get drugs with nasty side-effects that don’t cure you but help to worsen the problem.
New treatments for depression are suppressed, even though the condition has been well-documented for decades.
Even if you’re suffering from something in the DSM or medical book, there might be a newer, better, and more effective treatment that exists.
But you won’t hear about it unless you do the work to find it.
Economics Prevent Cures + Effective Treatments
I think Capitalism is a wonderful thing, but in the world of medicine, it is not effective.
I’m not proposing a change or suggesting any other system because I don’t know what would be better.
The governments certainly can’t be trusted with our health, as we learned in the case of PTSD.
The only person you can trust with your health is YOU, no matter the system.
Here’s a hypothetical scenario that proves why cures are hard to come by:
Person A & B both have good intentions. They want to treat PTSD!
Person A discovers a rare cure that near-instantly gets rid of PTSD. The treatment profits him $500 per client. He has a 99% client satisfaction rate.
Person B invents a pill. This pill sometimes helps PTSD sufferers, and it profits him $100 / mo.
The average client takes the pill for 1 year before giving up and looking for something better.
So per customer, Person A makes $500.
Person B on the other hand makes $1,200 per customer.
Person A found the cure, but Person B banks the cash.
When it comes to marketing, Person B can outspend & outbid Person A.
Person A can spend $300 to acquire a customer and keep $200. Person B can spend $700 to acquire a customer and keep $500.
Do you see the problem in this?
Huge pill companies dominate the games and lobby the government because they have serious cash flow to do so.
I personally don’t think these companies have good intentions because they tend to hide studies and create BS propaganda.
Even if they did have good intentions and were clueless of Person A’s cure, they still dominate the space.
It’s more profitable to “help” people, not “cure them.”
Another reason for this is that Person B’s treatment is more affordable in the short-term.
If Person A wanted to compete, he could charge a one-time fee of $1,200.
Even though both would charge the same, many people would still choose Person B because they’re skeptical of Person A’s claim.
Furthermore Person B is asking for significantly less $ in the short term. The profit comes out to $3.33 per day, whereas Person A’s one-time cure is an instant profit of $1,200.
Many people are stupidly worried about their finances to the point that they’d take a less-effective treatment “to save money.”
Despite your health being invaluable, many people aren’t willing to spend $ to cure themselves.
Many of the Masses Prefer Symptom Management
A little bit of symptom management is what they’d prefer, and so that’s what they get!
In the case of PTSD, actual recovery is fucking tough.
Taking a few pills with a few side effects to prevent flashbacks in the short-term is a lot easier than spending 3 months doing the tough work with someone a bit more expensive.
The same is true of say depression.
Instead of fixing the diet, setting goals, moving around often, engaging socially, and sleeping perfectly, it’s a lot easier to take a pill (5 seconds of effort) to slightly increase serotonin receptors.
Symptom Management Isn’t BAD, It’s Just Risky
I’d like to add that I’m not 100% against pills or symptom management.
I’m writing this on Kratom because my physical pain + PTSD (yes I have this myself) has been a bit bad past few days.
Kratom completely prevents flashbacks, and allows me to focus and engage with life.
HOWEVER, it is only a cure-enhancing drug I’m using.
I’m not using Kratom AS the cure, but rather as something to help me manage until I get cured.
When shit hits the fan, you honestly do need a bit of a “pick me up” to get you through the day.
If you are severely depressed for example, it may not be a bad idea to get a little “booster,” only if it helps you do the groundwork to doing better.
For example if you remain severely depressed, you might struggle motivating yourself to eat healthier to improve your mood.
If you use a “pick me up” drug for the sake of eating healthier, you will soon be able to quit the drug and cure yourself from there.
In general though, I prefer to deal directly with the cause.
Focusing too much on treating symptoms is a dangerous path because it’s more profitable ($$$), and a short-term solution to what you can fix in the long-term with substantial effort.
I see too many people get addicted to drugs like Kratom because they aren’t willing to do the groundwork to healing their physical pain or depression or whatever.
That’s not the way to go.
Treat the symptoms if you are struggling, but never forget the ground-work.
Moving Forward: Finding Cures, Optimizing Life
Now that we know mainstream medicine is regressive, and oftentimes ineffective because $$$, how can we move forward?
This article might spark some anger, but the point is not to be angry at governments or mainstream.
It’s important to know that the governments & mainstream aren’t on your side, but don’t try change them.
It’s not worth the energy getting angry. Focus this on YOU and YOUR LIFE.
Have you ever seen a successful riot? Nope.
So shut up, put your head down, and focus on your own life.
Step 1: Persistence
It’s a bit cliche to say “never give up.”
But when it comes to optimizing your life, seriously, NEVER GIVE UP.
An important question to ask yourself is,
“Has someone else with my exact problem solved it before?”
Yes. There is a 99.99999999999% chance someone has, and won.
People have literally fallen out of planes and made a miraculous full recovery.
Riches have been made from rags, and it all comes down to your mindset.
The notion that you have an issue no one else has ever faced and succeeded is ridiculous.
Someone has definitely suffered your pain, and has overcame it.
The hard part is finding it.
Be persistent and keep a clear vision of your future. This is where visualization techniques, affirmations, and prayer help.
Expect to spend a LOT of time on Google. Expect a lot of TIME being spent learning, studying, and trying.
You may fail a few times, or not always win.
In my case of dealing with physical pain, I’ve been to so many doctors in 2017 I lost track.
There was a time I was on a bridge- I didn’t go there to kill myself, but instead to contemplate what it would be like if I jumped or if I pushed through to it.
I was brutally exhausted, tired of stupid doctors, failed treatments, and lost $.
There were a few months in 2017 I spent living below the poverty line because literally every $ was going to medical treatments.
I imagined two scenarios:
In the first, I fell. I went where we all end up, which was a bit scary, but all the physical and emotional pain would’ve ended.
In the second, I suffered for another 5 years.
I traveled the whole world and didn’t enjoy one bit of it because I was dealing with so much physical pain.
I never enjoyed sex, athletics, or anything else young men should enjoy- because my body hurt SO MUCH.
But finally at the age of 24, I found the cure.
While I would be upset at having missed out for so long, I’d get to spend the next 20 years of my life in perfect health because of everything I learned.
In that moment I realized that it was more than worth the struggle.
No matter what you’re going through, it’s worth fixing it, or solving the problem.
Optimizing your life for fulfillment is infinitely worth it.
We’re all headed to the same direction, and I’m not sure what’s next, so please at least enjoy this life as much as possible.
It’s worth a bit of persistence. Visualize your future, and all the good that can come WHEN (not if) you win.
Step 2: Open-Mindedness
Persistence is worthless without open-mindedness.
I once suggested to someone that eating a better diet could cure their depression.
Scientific evidence was even provided in addition to my personal self-studies on diet’s effects on depression.
The people in the online chat FLIPPED OUT.
Scientific evidence was apparently not enough to change their minds.
If you’re not willing to be open-minded, you minus well give up now.
This individual could by now be living a happy, full life, if they fixed first their diet then a few other things.
But they were too close-minded.
I think a lot of doctors have great intentions, but the fact is they’re clueless to effective treatments.
They follow the book, and the book is broken.
You have to be open-minded to treatments in the case of health that other people have tried and succeeded at.
You’ll have to be careful not to get scammed, but at the same time, there are some very weird treatments that are quite effective.
Apparently me not having a doctorate’s degree disqualified me from giving advice.
This thinking is dangerous- a doctorate’s degree means you gamed the system (Uni) right, and isn’t necessarily a true declaration of intelligence.
You MUST be open-minded to new ideas.
I’ve an acquaintance that suffers from very similar chronic pain as I do.
I have been trying a new treatment not well-documented by mainstream medicine and it’s been working miraculously.
However I had to stop staying in touch because he was never open to this new idea.
He was persistent indeed, but more like a chicken with its head cut off.
Your beliefs are dangerous. Really, really dangerous.
If you identify with certain beliefs that define your personality, you’re destined to encounter roadblocks.
Your brain’s RAS (Reticular Activation System) will automatically shut out or suppress any information that doesn’t fit with your beliefs.
So if you find a solution to a problem that is outside your current belief systems, you may unconsciously become angry, or not even notice it…
Be open-minded. This is easier said than done.
Step #3: Be Your Own Scientist
The theory of university and “degree’s” is amazing.
It is in a way a screening process- in general, people with degrees will be more intelligent and successful than those without.
Problems arise when the system breaks.
The current system of education does not account for new information.
It is based on past discoveries, and rarely allows for innovation.
Again, I think a lot of doctors have amazing intentions. However when they’re blind to new problems, they will never be able to effectively treat it.
In the case of PTSD, it took decades of research and convincing for the diagnosis to officially hit the medical textbooks.
Does that mean that PTSD didn’t exist before 1980?
Or did it exist, but it wasn’t officially recognized?
I’m going to go with the latter. I think WWI soldiers suffered from severe PTSD, but mainstream medicine failed to acknowledge it.
This means that most doctors would not be able to effectively treat soldiers suffering from flashbacks, psychosis, angry outbursts, and an in-ability to focus.
Before 1980, each condition was treated separately.
Instead of treating the cause, each symptom was treated as a cause in and of itself.
The depression was treated as depression instead of something stemming from changes in brain function following a severely traumatic event.
PTSD, and every other medical issue, existed BEFORE it was officially recognized.
A HUGE problem in modern society is we fail to recognize new ideas that aren’t on the official textbooks.
How the fuck do new diagnosis’s make the textbook if we are unable to acknowledge something exists until it hits the textbook?
There are some good wo/men out there doing the hard work.
If you’re suffering from a problem (medical or not), you need to become your own scientist.
You don’t need a degree to learn about cell reproduction, muscles, the nervous system, and other principles of health.
If you want to treat yourself, you need to educate yourself. In the case of PTSD, survivors had to educate and treat themselves before 1980 because mainstream doctors followed a book that didn’t yet recognize their problem.
You must be open-minded and persistent, but also your own scientist.
If mainstream medicine fails you, or you suffer from any problem that mainstream can’t solve, then it’s on YOU to create the diagnosis.
Then determine a treatment plan.
While I focus primarily on medicine, the same principle applies in say business. You need education to win, but that doesn’t mean Uni will supply you properly.
Expect a lot of backlash from friends, family, and mainstream. People are, for whatever reason, anti self-help, and will berate you for ignoring mainstream advice and creating new ideas and treatment solutions.
Most people don’t want to be great, or they don’t have non-mainstream problems, which is why they berate you.
Going against the flow will be the toughest part of all of this.
It’ll be infinitely worth it when you succeed.
As I write this, I feel a deep pain in my chest. I’ve had to cut so many people out. So many people have tried so hard to drag me down because I couldn’t accept that I’d live in pain.
You will feel completely alone. You will feel unsupported most likely.
That’s the hardest part about success. It’s a transformation on every level imaginable…
Step #4: Consistent Execution
You MUST be willing to act, test, and try.
Ideas are inherently worthless.
Do you know how many times I’ve heard of a “good business idea?”
And of every person I’ve met that has the “idea to travel the world,” only one other friend has done it (maybe 2?).
I like to say now that “every idea is inherently worthless until tested.”
Cool, you have an idea to make a million dollars.
Ideas are worthless until put into practice.
If you want to succeed in business, health, or anything, you have to be willing to test your ideas.
Step #5: Be OK With Losing…. A LOT
A lot of people don’t test their ideas because they don’t want to lose.
In my case of trying to solve chronic pain, I’ve lost a LOT of money.
Like….. A LOT A LOT.
It was worth it though because being perfectly healthy is worth it.
I had theories, I tested the theories, and most of the time things didn’t get better.
But that’s OK.
It helped me narrow things down to where I am now.
I didn’t speculate, I tested. I attempted. I “failed,” but these failures brought me closer and closer to success!
Moving Forward: Taking the Dark Road
When it comes to living life fully, you will be walking down a dark road that few others have walked down.
It’s easy to do something when everyone approves of it.
Mainstream is comfortable, and winning is scary.
I don’t think people never try because it’s “too hard.” I think they never take action because the path isn’t well-plotted out; the effects of going against the grain are dramatic.
It’s worth it, for me at least. Maybe for others they’d rather live comforted by the masses. Their choice…
It’s always been scary for me.
How do you build a digital marketing business online and travel the world?
The information is out there, but it’s not near as clear, stable, and approved-of as going to Uni and getting a 9-5.
Building my business is significantly more fulfilling, and gives me financial AND time freedom that my former high school peers will take years to enjoy.
Dealing with my chronic pain and staying focused on a full recovery so that I can be 100% healthy is also scary.
I’ve tested drugs on myself. I’ve rejected doctors.
Just like not everyone does their job right or perfectly, many doctors are only average, or even fail.
But our society puts docs on a pedestal and suppresses the individual for testing, researching, and experimenting.
Even though my experiments have all been safe, and I’m seeking to educate myself quite a bit, many people do not support it.
Like parrots of their peers, I can expect them to say the exact same things when I talk about nerves, fibers, and neuroscience.
Apparently not having a degree makes me incapable of self-teaching medicine only to apply to myself.
I wish that my issue was well-documented in mainstream medicine, and I could be given a clear diagnosis with a clear treatment plan.
But it isn’t.
When I write about how fucked mainstream & governments are, I’m not doing so to agitate you.
I’m doing it to bring awareness to the individual, to the self, to you.
We have the power to live lives we want to live, and achieve whatever we want.
The possibility is there, but will you take it?
Our society is fabricated security.
I’ve been traveling the world and it’s the same everywhere.
Fabrication is a tool we humans use to avoid the harsher realities. Humanity couldn’t accept that suffering to the magnitude of PTSD was possible until 1980.
What else can’t we humans accept in the now?
Do cures to cancer exist?
Is it possible to work 4 hours a week, making 6 figures, and live anywhere in the world?
Can you live life exactly as you dream?
Can dreams become reality?
The answer to YOUR desires lay within you.
