Excellent post and all true. I'm 70 and walk 11 miles per day, 5-6 days a week, do 700 military pushups as well, do my yard and garden, but at a lower level than you do, take some supplements, and just watch what I eat, indulging myself on occasion with pecan pie and/or ice cream. I'm 5'10', 176-184 and have been for many years. Played all types of sports and surfed all over both coasts, Mexico, and Australia, and like you, have had my share of injuries, but none serious, just dislocations, broken bones and torn muscles.

Like you, I wish I had all those hundreds of thousands of dollars I paid in premiums so I could have disposed of them any way I wanted and buying just catastrophic coverage. But insurance isn't about health, it's about power and greed. You've written mightily and accurately about this scam and genocide over the Wuhan virus. "Health care" by the socialists has only been partially about that: it's about control and those who administer it can play God and and at the same time, get rich.

Thanks again for writing the truth and sharing it with those of us who will read and think about your points. Slowly, populations everywhere are realizing the harm pharma/government/health industry industries have caused and it is writings like yours that expose it.

In my entire life, I have never had a primary care physician (PCP). Did I, here and there, "go to the doctor"? Yes, but with perhaps one exception, it was always "one and done" for a specific reason. Did I list a PCP for insurance purposes, but never see the person? Yes. I went for 𝒚𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒔 without having a doctor or seeing one -- and as a woman, I'm 𝒔𝒖𝒑𝒑𝒐𝒔𝒆𝒅 to have my parts checked year in and year out, doncha know? Honestly, decades ago, I began to see doctors as weirdos and started calling them "disease hunters." Really. I began to think that there was something wrong with 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒎. I think the Covid® operation has proved my hypothesis beyond doubt.

Thank you for another great piece, Mark.

Conversation with my primary who I see once a year:

Doc: your cholesterol is too high and you need a statin.

Me: I will never take a statin. I’ll change my diet and take a few supplements. See you in three months.

Doc: *rolls eyes* fine, but everyone says that and never does it.

Me: I’m not everybody

THREE MONTHS LATER

Doc: well, your cholesterol came down 75 points.

Me: see, I told you I’d get it down.

Doc: it’s still too high (202) you need a statin.

Me: *walking out the door* I will never take a statin.

Doc: See you in three months

Me: No, you won’t.

***I’m 65-years-old, 5’10”, 148, walk five miles six days a week and work out at a power lifting gym with a personal trainer three days a week. My body fat percentage is 19%. I take zero meds. And she still looks for problems and issues. I guess I’m just too healthy for her?

Agree. Avoid all medicine (pharmaceuticals, physicians, "healthcare") as much as possible. Use critical thinking and not preventative medicine flow charts produced by big Pharma for the government.

Our society's idea of "preventive" care is is to subject the body to pills and procedures that cause the problems in the first place. There is no reverence or even respect for the awe-inspiring creation that is the human body, just the engrained belief that we cannot survive without all of these interventions, from birth onward.

It’s probably about high time I see a doctor for a checkup but I have lost all but maybe 1 percent of faith in anything medical related. Admittedly I took a flu shot from 1996-2019 but never will again. I won’t take any kind of OTC medicine. The whole plandemic has completely flipped my way of thinking that even my wife- who was stridently against any Covid shot or an annual flu shot for that matter- thinks I’ve gone too far. Ok, maybe I’m paranoid. I told her I trust no one and demand veritable and concrete proof of results before engaging in any activities recommended, suggested, advised, proposed or ‘mandated’ by so-called experts. A couple or few capital letters after your name mean nothing to me. My trust is gone forever. And I don’t forgive. Sorry.

When it comes to the blood glucose serum test, part of your metabolic panel, it is like a snapshot. It freezes the moment in time of the blood draw.

The A1C test, however, is like a movie. It indicates how your body has been processing sugars long term.

My glucose test always bumps the high end of the scale but my A1C is perfectly normal. So no worries. Yours is likely the same.

I had a family doc I liked. He understood me and we got along well. He left his practice. Stuck. I picked a guy I’d heard good things about. “He’s not seeing new patients” said the gatekeepers. So I wound up throwing a dart. Regretted it.

This new doc didn’t even open my EMR to look at my test results which echo yours when he started pressuring me hard to take Statins. He tried every trick on the book to scare me. I was very uncomfortable, basically told him to pound salt and never saw him again.

So I phoned a buddy who is also an MD. Well he used to be my pal for over 25yrs until we had a falling out over covid but that’s another story. I explained my strange encounter to him.

He told me that Doctors were being pressured hard to prescribe Statins to patients over 50 regardless of test results. He said they’d been told “studies show” a supposed major health benefit. He didn’t buy it. Neither did I.

Among the laundry list of Statin side effects one of the top is tiredness and muscle pain. People are obese enough. So they’re going to put society on a drug that turns them into couch potatoes then scold them for not getting exercise and being fat. Brilliant. I suppose then they’ll prescribe Ozempic.

“Jane, get me off this crazy thing!” comes to mind.

As a sidebar to the obsession with Cholesterol I used to work at a major cardiac hospital. Best in the country, probably the world. Our cardiac surgeons had reached the point where they’d become very skeptical of the notion of cholesterol as a marker for heart disease.

Point is we’d been beating the cholesterol drum for 50 years and heart disease is still the number one killer. Treating cholesterol hasn’t done anything to curb mortality.

Internally the focus was changing to inflammation as the root cause of atherosclerotic disease.

The new theory that supplants cholesterol is that everyone’s body goes through inflammatory cycles which are normal. Without inflammation your body cannot heal itself. However, too much inflammation over time roughens the smooth walls inside vessels causing plaques to build up and calcification to ensue.

Many of our docs were touting the Mediterranean diet rich in olive oils and staying away from refined sugar and processed foods to their patients. I trust these guys (and gals) because surgeons, unlike their counterparts in Cardiology, have little skin in the pharmaceutical game.

When it comes to vaccinations hospitals insist on them for their staff. Because a little known fact is our illustrious government snuck a little tidbit in Obamacare whereby if they don’t achieve 80% compliance their Medicare reimbursement is cut 5%. I’m unsure if similar “incentives” trickle down to patient compliance. But it wouldn’t surprise me.

Lastly, were you aware there is an ICD10 code for being non-covid vaccinated? Z28.310. So we are being tracked. Never has there ever been a tracking code for non compliance of any vaccine or drug. Ever. Your guess is as good as mine for why this was deemed necessary. Personally I find it extraordinarily creepy.

Medical insurance doubles or triples the cost of health care (if you can call it that). If my forced medicare coverage ever demands I need a yearly physical, I am out. The modern stone age medical mafia is a plague upon the existence of mankind. It may be only viable in an emergency and just enough to keep you alive so you can re-exit the system before they murder you.

Mark - Dr. Mercola had an article recently about sun exposure. It’s much more beneficial than what we’ve always been told. https://takecontrol.substack.com/p/sun-exposure-health-benefits

I go to my PCP once a year in the fall. On my last visit a few weeks ago, flu, shingles and tetanus* shots were suggested. No, no and no thank you. She hasn't mentioned the clot shots since 2021 when I told her I will lose my job before I would take it.

*They sell you on a tetanus shot but there is no tetanus shot. If you comply, they give you a DTaP shot instead.

Good for you for saying no to the BP, cholesterol and other "helpful" Rx that only cause problems and are totally unnecessary. I have high cholesterol- it's a familial trait. My parents were on statins for years and they felt awful. They still live to be in their early/mid 90s- probably would have lived longer if they had not been on Rx for this- I just had my check up also. I was asked three times by two assistants and the Dr. if I had my flu shot. No, no, and no. Thankfully covid was NEVER brought up. I turned 70 a couple of months ago- had hip replacement 7 weeks ago and am getting ready for a 20 mile mountain bike ride this morning ( did the same thing on Tuesday). Walked 3.5 yesterday and swam a mile and a half on Monday and will do the same tomorrow. I weigh 130 and get into the weight room 3x week. Have been doing this since I was in my 20s and have hada some setbacks this last year as I had a brain tumor removed (acoustic neuroma)- but I feel my fitness level helped me recover so much quicker than had I been sedentary. My Dr. bought into (literally) the covid scam- he's from India and actually said "people are dying in the streets" early on. I kept my mouth shut but he knows where I stand and I know HE knows I was right all along...so we get along. Keep up the great body and mind work! :-)

How long will it be before all medicine deemed appropriate from the powers that be, will be REQUIRED if you want to eat! Never in my life time did I think this control over our lives was possible.I'm living in the twilight zone.

Insurance, any kind of insurance allows people to transfer the burden of their stupidity to everybody else that participates in the whole mess.

Stupid drivers, stupid homeowners, stupid health choices......insurance is just plain stupid.

OAN, In my area, we've had numerous car/Amish buggy crashes, all in daylight and all the fault of the vehicle drivers.

As a friend, I'm personally involved in two of them trying to get the insurance companies to pay for the totaled buggies.

In one instance, I've called the company three times to request that they visit the people that were hit in order to make an assessment and settle for the amount of the repairs.

We've been waiting for a year and a half and no agent has shown up.

I suspect that the scumbag insurance company knows that ultimately, the Amish won't pursue legal action and are waiting for them to give up.

Ditto Mark. Well said. My husband and I concur.

During the plandemic we were thrown out of a hospital for refusing masks. Our doctors refused to see us if we didn’t muzzle up so we said “see ya!” We found two nurse practitioners with their own practice who weren’t on board with the plandemic lies and who hired nurses fleeing from the corrupt disease management system. Naturally our medical insurance doesn’t cover the cost so we pay for our insurance plus our HEALTH care.

Thanks for another great post. May you and your wife have a blessed Thanksgiving.

Another great read Mark.

Some great quotables in here: "conduct based insurance nullification." I like that.

Rember also, that the powers that be isolated and wrecked the lives of the elderly as well.

Terrifying them and isolating them from their friends and relatives, or making them die alone and in fear.

Those in power should never be forgiven for that, nor should the dcotors and nurses who enforced it.
