The much anticipated documentary ‘Doctored’ hit the theaters last September, where the film premiered in New York City on Sept. 21, at the Village East. Now being released on dvd/bluray, director Bobby Sheehan and producer Jeff Hays have created a well-researched, enlightening yet concise expose on the inner workings of the American healthcare system. Unbeknowst to many Americans, pharmaceutical companies do much more than simply provide objective literature to busy doctors offices–incentives for the doctors to prescribe to their particular drug trail not too far behind a brochure. A synopsis on the official website for the documentary reads:
A visit to the doctor can be traumatic enough. Now we learn about the “influencers” – the people you never see, but whose job it is to turn you into a compliant, pill popping, revenue generation unit. And at all costs. Medical Inc. reveals the unseen tactics of these “influencers” in an investigation that leads to the highest levels of the American Medical Association (AMA) and reveals an alarming portrait of deception and criminality. Along the way we wonder:
- Is much of what we “know” about modern medicine just slick marketing from companies that profit when we’re in pain (or by putting us in pain)?
- Why aren’t we being told about the successes of natural therapies?
Is it because the “Medical Monopoly” spends millions a year attacking, ridiculing, and trying to discredit these natural therapies? The answers are almost beyond belief, until Medical Inc. takes us into the courtroom with five chiropractors who, having been labeled “an unscientific cult,’ fought back and won a landmark verdict.
Their heroic story forms the backdrop of one of the most personally compelling documentaries ever. Because of their bravery, the medical industrial complex is no longer blocking access to safe natural alternatives, pill popping is giving way to smarter preventative care, and purveyors of sickness are being shoved aside, resulting in a healthier life for us all.
An article on setyoufreenews.com summed it up best:
Of course, mainstream medical care has its place, like in caring for a patient with broken bones or victims of a car accident. Popping pills, however, won’t cure everything – or hardly anything. Through interviews with chiropractors, osteopathic doctors, MDs, pharmaceutical sales reps, and champions of holistic healing like NBA Hall of Famer John Stockton, Doctored makes two very simple things clear:
1. The public has the right to all, not just mainstream (read: most well-funded) viewpoints on health, and
2.One’s health is more about personal responsibility than trips to the doctor Here are just 4 simple ways to improve your health now.
Pharmaceuticals pushed by mainstream medicine produce more deaths than traffic fatalities. While the U.S. only makes up 5% of the world’s population, the citizens are consuming more than 50% of the world’s pharmaceutical drugs.
