Dr. Hotze and Dr. Gary Null discuss death by medicine, including the overuse of prescription drugs and the neurotoxicity of vaccines.
2:42: What we did is we simply ask a simple question, does orthodox medicine in each of its different divisions, like oncology, cardiology, neurology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, does it work? It’s that simple. We found that their own studies showed that in the majority of cases for chronic care it failed miserably.
3:22: …88% of medicine not just fails, but ends up being the leading cause of death and injury in the United States.
6:03: …they took a drug, Merck, the pharmaceutical company, and they showed that it would cause an increase in heart attacks and strokes. They hid that information.
6:20: Anywhere from a low number of 60,000, but a more realistic number is 500,000, Americans died because of taking Vioxx.
7:36: …any highly acidic food or beverages, including caffeine, which is highly anabolic, can cause inflammatory cytokines. As a result, every time we eat anything that’s highly acidic, we are causing a hyper-storm, well, it’s called a cytokine storm, in our body where there’s massive amounts of free radicals. That leads to pain, that leads to inflammation, that leads to swelling, that leads to all forms of dysfunction. That’s why it’s very easy to turn off diabetes, turn off arthritis, turn off a lot of things, including aging in the brain with the amyloid plaque that leads to dementia, and one type of dementia is Alzheimer’s.
9:19: But in fact, iatrogenic illnesses are the leading cause of death, doctor-caused illnesses.
10:26: Up to 10 million children a day have to take a class 2 narcotic in the same category as cocaine in order to go to school. It’s Ritalin. That’s unfortunate because what happens is it leads to creating mood disturbances.
10:42: Now, if you look at the package insert, which I have, the number one side effect for antidepressant medication is depression, the number one side effect for antianxiety medication is anxiety.
11:44: Not a single person, when asked, acknowledged that there was any proof their brain chemical balance exists. Is there any test you can take? No. Is there any diagnostic procedure? No.
17:33: Medicine follows the dictates of the big pharma and big pharma has no interest in whether a person lives or die. They have an interest in how sick you are and how long of a patient you’re going to be.
19:09: Every vaccine has only toxic ingredients in it from aborted fetal cells to mercury, in some still and aluminum as an adjuvant. Aluminum, according to thousands of articles in the toxicological peer-reviewed literature, is a neurotoxin.
21:57: You talk about a can of worms of misinformation, everything about the COVID virus.
Stacey Bandfield: Welcome to Dr. Hotze’s Wellness Revolution. I’m Stacey Bandfield here with Dr. Steven Hotze, founder of the Hotze Health & Wellness Center. We have a fantastic show for you today. We have Dr. Gary Null and he is the author of Death By Medicine. He’s such a wealth of information – can’t wait to hear what he has to tell us today. Dr. Hotze.
Dr. Steven Hotze: Thanks so much, Stacey. Thank each one of you for joining us. I believe that you, and everyone, needs to have a physician who has the know how and wherewithal to get you on a path of health and wellness, naturally, so as you mature, you have energy, vitality and enthusiasm for life, without pharmaceutical drugs. That’s what we do here at the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, and that’s why I have these podcasts, so I can inform you and get you to understand that conventional medicine, traditional medicine, has many problems associated with it, particularly its use of pharmaceutical drugs and the disease model that it has. I like to bring you information that will help you understand how, if you’re involved with doctors that practice conventional medicine, you endanger yourself.
It’s interesting that here we have the coronavirus going on and they say over the last three months we’ve had a decline in overall deaths in America. Everybody’s concerned about COVID virus killing everybody, it’s like the plague. We’ve got less people dying in America now than we did at the same time last year. How does that happen? Well, I think one of the reasons is, is the hospitals have been empty and people haven’t been going to see their doctors, so they’re not getting drugged to death and not having unnecessary surgeries performed on them.
That’s why Gary Null wrote a book. Gary Null, he’s our guest today. Dr. Gary Null wrote the book Death By Medicine. This is a book, I think it was written…what year did you publish it? 2000 and…what year was it?
Dr. Gary Null: We did it in 2005.
Dr. Steven Hotze: 2005.
Dr. Gary Null: There were five scientists, all with backgrounds in academia and medical doctors and PhDs. It took us five years. We only used orthodox medicine zone statistics, no opinions, no subjective input. What we did is we simply ask a simple question, does orthodox medicine in each of its different divisions, like oncology, cardiology, neurology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, does it work? It’s that simple. We found that their own studies showed that in the majority of cases for chronic care it failed miserably. Where medicine worked very well, it was exemplary, was in emergency medicine. But emergency medicine, if you have a heart attack or stroke, if you are a burn victim, if you’re in a car crash, then it works, it saves lives, it’s amongst the best in the world, but that’s only anywhere between 10 to 12% of all medicine, which means that 88% of medicine not just fails, but ends up being the leading cause of death and injury in the United States.
As an example, this year we’ll have somewhere between 500,000 to, let’s say, 650,000 people die of either stroke or heart attack and then cancer is right behind that, diabetes behind that. Now, mind you, when you’ve had a war on cancer for 45 years and you have no major cures and anyone who gets any treatment and does not die, a hundred percent of the success goes to the treatment instead of anything that might be innately important, the person’s own healing mechanism. Then we see how many people die from the cancer itself, from the chemotherapy, which is carcinogenic, and the radiation, which is carcinogenic, but both are capable of limiting the body’s spread, even shrinking cancer, but then you destroy the immune system. So six months, a year, year and a half later, the cancer comes back and now you have no immune system fight it.
If you’re going to take credit for a war on cancer and telling people what great progress you’ve had, then I’m going to take a look at the last 40 years. If we take a look at the last 40 years, an average, more or less, between 400 to 600,000 people dying per year, then you’ve got to take credit for 20 million people who were toe tagged and charged anywhere from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. That’s failure. I don’t believe we should reward anyone for anything if they fail. If you take your car in to be repaired and you get it back and it doesn’t run at all, you don’t say, “Thank you and you were courageous in what you did.” No, these are not hero journeys we’re taking. These are highly perilous.
Just like COX-2 inhibitors. Now, COX-2 inhibitors were given in order to stop people with rheumatory pain, arthritic pain…
Dr. Steven Hotze: Listen. Hey, doc, let me interrupt you on that. COX-2 inhibitors are like the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories. We’re talking about particularly a drug called Vioxx, but the current anti-inflammatories on the market have the same similar problems. Go ahead and let’s talk about the Vioxx that Merck produced.
Dr. Gary Null: This is a good example of what’s wrong with medicine. If medicine was what Hippocrates and Galen were practicing, then in Dr. Kellogg, back in the late 1800s, early 1900s, that would be fine, but that’s not “first do no harm.” Instead, they took a drug, Merck, the pharmaceutical company, and they showed that it would cause an increase in heart attacks and strokes. They hid that information. It was Dr. Graham, an FDA investigator, who would later find that out. Anywhere from a low number of 60,000, but a more realistic number is 500,000, Americans died because of taking Vioxx. They paid a $5.8 billion fine. The stock value went up, the head of the company got a raise, and everybody on Wall Street was happy. Just like the tobacco industry, they paid the fine and then they went on and made more profit. In fact, for four years, even after paying that large sum out, they still were extremely profitable. That’s what Wall Street cared about.
Well, that’s neo-liberalism at its worst, because it means that all the patient is, is a profit center, instead of looking at the patient. Because the same rheumatologists who were giving out Vioxx without questioning its safety and efficacy were the same ones that I debated on WMCA Radio back in New York City, back in 1975, where the top rheumatologists representing the Rheumatologist Association came on the air and said there is no association between anything you eat or drink and rheumatism at all. I said, “But there’s a lot of evidence.” He said, “Well, we have to have the peer-reviewed journals, but right now there is no evidence.”
Well, it turns out everything that they said was wrong. That meant that any highly acidic food or beverages, including caffeine, which is highly anabolic, can cause inflammatory cytokines. As a result, every time we eat anything that’s highly acidic, we are causing a hyper-storm, well, it’s called a cytokine storm, in our body where there’s massive amounts of free radicals. That leads to pain, that leads to inflammation, that leads to swelling, that leads to all forms of dysfunction. That’s why it’s very easy to turn off diabetes, turn off arthritis, turn off a lot of things, including aging in the brain with the amyloid plaque that leads to dementia, and one type of dementia is Alzheimer’s.
We know the mechanisms by which disease occurs. We know the pathology of medicine. The trouble is we’re not willing to change medicine to first teach about prevention, because doctors, as you know, as a board-certified physician, you’re not taught about how to keep yourself healthy. You’re taught the what-to-do when your body is sick, dealing with the symptoms. Therefore, there’s always going to be a failure.
Dr. Steven Hotze: Well, that’s exactly right. Now, let’s talk about the death by medicine. This is known folks as iatrogenic disease, which means it’s disease and death caused by medical treatment, whether it be surgery, hospitalizations or medications. Let’s talk about that. It’s the leading cause of death and the conventional doctors don’t talk about this. If you look on the internet or anywhere, what’s the leading cause of death? Heart disease. That’s what they say, 650,000 people a year. But in fact, iatrogenic illnesses are the leading cause of death, doctor-caused illnesses. Let’s run through those. What are the major causes of an iatrogenic illness and death in the United States?
Dr. Gary Null: Well, for example, the number of people who are killed from unnecessary surgeries and the number of people killed from taking proper medications where their body was not able to handle it, or the older person gets the more combination of medications a person takes and then they’re taking medications to counter the adverse effect of other medications. Over-medicating is rampant. Look at the children, the number one cause of death in 10 to 14 year-old boys is suicide. When you and I were growing up, suicide just didn’t exist at all in young boys. They were engaged in life and activities. Now, when you’re taking the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors that is adversely affecting a person’s behavior. Up to 10 million children a day have to take a class 2 narcotic in the same category as cocaine in order to go to school. It’s Ritalin. That’s unfortunate because what happens is it leads to creating mood disturbances.
Now, if you look at the package insert, which I have, the number one side effect for antidepressant medication is depression, the number one side effect for antianxiety medication is anxiety. But it gets worse. You can cause suicidal ideation, you can call it suicide, you can cause psychosis, paranoia, delusions. Indeed, when I went out to Colorado to interview the friends and family of the shooters, Eric Harris and the other kid that killed the people at Columbine, they were normal kids until they started taking the psychiatric medications.
We’ve been led to believe, and you see it in every ad on television for an antidepressant, for anti-psychotic medication or antianxiety medication, that you have a brain chemical imbalance. If that’s the case, then where’s the proof? Over at the Javits Center, we went to the American Psychiatric Association’s annual conference. Now, psychiatrists come from all over the world, herein is the problem. Not a single person, when asked, acknowledged that there was any proof their brain chemical balance exists. Is there any test you can take? No. Is there any diagnostic procedure? No.
Then in the film, Manufacturing Madness, that I did, you’ll see a completely normal healthy person go into 12 different board-certified psychiatrist’s office. In anywhere from three and a half minutes to seven minutes, they would be diagnosed with a mental illness and given a prescription drug. When then met on the street outside their office and asked, “This is a completely normal person, yet you diagnosed them with brain chemical imbalance and gave them a very powerful medication.” “Well, it’s all subjective.” Well, if it’s all subjective, why not give them a sugar pill? If you’re saying that there’s no proof that it’s going to do anything, then why give them something that there is proof that it can cause physical harm?
But it’s all about the profit; it’s all about following the protocol. It’s tribal, it’s that primitive. So we’ve drugged children and now children think it’s normal to be diagnosed with ADD and ADHD. We’re not looking at the other environmental causes. We’re not looking at the fact that, as one medical doctor, one woman physician who’s a pediatrician told me, she said, “My kids stopped eating sugar and caffeinated beverages for breakfast and they stopped bouncing off the walls. They were completely normal.” Yet, she said that in all of her training, she was never taught that caffeine … as kids take these soft drinks, an average kid today could easily get 500 milligrams of caffeine in their system and that’s really destructive, but also they’re taking sugar and sugar can adversely affect behavior. In fact, that’s been proven. Dr. [Sholenthower] and Dr. Strauss both showed that, that sugar impacted emotions. It makes us more angry, makes it more volatile. She said, “It wasn’t a rude awakening for me.”
Then take the sugar out of the diet, take all processed carbohydrates out of the diet. Let a person have unrefined carbohydrates, brown rice and quinoa and millet and spelt, et cetera. Let them have a wholesome, healthy, clean diet. Suddenly, the whole biochemistry changes.
They don’t have a chemical brain imbalance. They’ve only used it as a selling tool for their drugs. They have no one that can show they’ve cured from this type of approach. But these are the same people following the same guidelines that once thought lobotomies were normal and electroconvulsive therapy is still given, causing grand mal seizures in the brain and erases memories. In fact, so bad that one preacher in Houston, his wife was having some postpartum depression, which is not unusual, and he got her to a psychiatrist who gave her electroconvulsive therapy, 34 sessions. She lost her entire memory. She didn’t even know how to brush her hair, she didn’t know how to make a meal. That was considered normal, but at least she wasn’t suffering from depression from what she had previously been depressed about. That’s similar to someone saying, “I’ve got a pain in my hand, so I’m going to cut off this hand.” Well, that doesn’t solve the problem. It only eliminates the symptoms.
We have made medicine focused with an obsessive fetish on symptom relief, not under functional reversal of the underlying condition. We have everybody taking all these medications and addicted to the medications and everyone knows this. Also, they say, “Well, a double-blind study.” Okay, how many double-blind studies published in peer-reviewed journals are reproducible? How about you can’t reproduce 67%. Now, when you consider the hundreds of thousands of studies and you cannot reproduce them then that means they’re not good studies. Even the peer-reviewed system itself is flawed.
I’ve published in peer-reviewed journals. I’ve done clinical studies, 44 clinical studies on health. I’ve reimbursed menopause in 500 women, who for a year, meeting once a week to reverse their diet, go on a healthy plant-based diet, exercise, stress management, take proper supplements. As Viktor Frankl, the great physician who survived five concentration camps, said, those who survived the concentration camps had one thing that defined them above all else and that is they still had a meaning for life greater than the punishment that they were being put through and the horrors of that experience. We’ve kind of lost focus of some of the important and salient points of Rollo May, Erich Fromm and Viktor Frankl, that what is the central core meaning of our life? What are we living for?
Well, if a person’s got pain, if they have cancer, if they have heart disease, and the number one theme in their life is, “Am I going to die?” They’re living within unrequited notion that I’m not going to have much time left. They live with this uncertainty, this angst, and instead of looking at what could reverse the conditions naturally, because we can reverse the conditions. It’s just that medicine cannot change a paradigm, even when something is found to be bad, when it’s toxic, like synthetic hormone replacement therapy, and replace it with what a good physician like yourself would use, which is natural bioidentical hormones, squaw vine, vitex, passion flower, dong quai, the most commonly used herb in the world, and Siberian ginseng, that can help rebalance hormones and balance between progesterone and testosterone and estrogen. They’re not used because they can’t be patented.
Medicine follows the dictates of the big pharma and big pharma has no interest in whether a person lives or die. They have an interest in how sick you are and how long of a patient you’re going to be. That’s what we wrote about. It was interesting. We sent 7,000 copies of that paper out to every medical organization in the United States, the AMA. By the way, the American Medical Association has acknowledged that iatrogenesis, what you were discussing, is the third leading cause of death in the United States. However, when we reviewed their paper, it was false. They did not include infections from in hospitals, like gangrene, which no one should ever die in a hospital, malnutrition and bed sores. When you add those into the equation then you see, wow, it is number one.
Also, remember, about 65% of people die in hospital, 35% die at home. How many people took their meds, got their medical procedures, went home and died because of it? They’re not included in any statistic whatsoever. Even in those that have a very high rate of failure, cancer is number one in failure. But it’s a flawed system, if you receive any orthodox therapy at all, then a hundred percent of the results are given to the therapy. That’s not any good, that’s like the flu vaccine.
Dangers of Vaccines
The flu vaccine is the garbage vaccine, it’s very dangerous. But look at the statistics. I’ve written 54 articles on the lack of science in efficacy and safety in vaccines.
I’ll give you an example. Every vaccine has only toxic ingredients in it from aborted fetal cells to mercury, in some still and aluminum as an adjuvant. Aluminum, according to thousands of articles in the toxicological peer-reviewed literature, is a neurotoxin. If you’re saying these vaccines are safe, well, why’d the Supreme Court say they were inherently dangerous? Because they are. If you’re putting inherently dangerous ingredients in a vaccine, how do you know that those ingredients won’t adversely affect a person, especially a young person’s immune system that’s not fully developed?
Certainly there should be no justification for having a hepatitis B vaccine, unless you can prove, which is easy to do, that the mother has hepatitis and could pass it on to the developing infant. If she tests negative, then there’s absolutely no legitimate scientific reason to give a baby a hepatitis B vaccine. That’s pure fraud.
But also, when you take a flu vaccine, the efficacy rate, because it morphs every year, can be anywhere as low as 16% to maybe a high up around 60%. But that’s, again, flawed science. It’s a mathematical model. What they’ll do is, let’s say for argument’s sake they give a million Americans the flu vaccine. At the end of the year, of those million Americans, let’s say 30% didn’t come down with the…
Dr. Steven Hotze: The flu.
Dr. Gary Null: … the flu. Then you say, “Okay, it was 70% effective.” Well, no. What if a person lives in Southern California, Arizona, Nevada, Florida, in Texas, where they’re getting a lot more sun than northern climates? What if they were drinking fresh juices each day, exercising each day? What if they’re taking vitamin D and zinc and selenium, all of which, along with vitamin C, are protective to our immune system? Are you saying that nothing a person does during that year except taking the flu vaccine is what prevented the flu? Well, that’s absurd. If any of my students turned in a paper, they would fail, and rightly so.
You don’t give a hundred percent of the credit to a vaccine when you haven’t done the histological and serological and biological tests. It’s all a game of math and numbers. For example, for 30 years, the CDC said that we had 36,000 people dying of flu every year. It wasn’t true. It was an out and out lie, because when we look at their actual data published on their own website, it was anywhere from a low of around 700 to a high around 2,000 people dying from the flu. The mass majority of people were dying from pneumonia. Well, you cannot conflate pneumonia with the flu. They are different conditions. Yet they did exactly that, much like they’re doing now with the COVID-19 virus.
You talk about a can of worms of misinformation, everything about the COVID virus. First, they said when it came to deaths, oh, it’s going to kill millions and millions of people.
Dr. Steven Hotze: Millions of people.
Dr. Gary Null: Well, it didn’t. Why? Because they used the wrong model. When they went to Italy and they looked at Italy, they didn’t look at the fact that the area where people were dying at the highest rate was the most polluted single area of all of Europe. They didn’t look at the fact that these people had already lived 80 years in one month, which is beyond the normal life span. These people are already suffering from co-morbidities. They had congestive heart failure from a lifetime of smoking, they had end-stage emphysema, they had cancers. Then that should have been what they died from, but because they may have had COVID, but they didn’t die from COVID, because there was no studies done in autopsies to prove that.
Dr. Steven Hotze: They died. Yes, they…
Dr. Gary Null: We were given wrong information about the number of people dying and their mathematical model of what we should do based on everyone else dying, and it was wrong. In the United States, 35 to 50% of the people dying were dying in nursing homes, assisted-living centers. The absurdity of it is when you go into an assisted-living center, or let’s say even better, you go into a hospice care. Hospice care means there’s nothing else medicine can do, you’re going to spend your last hours, days or weeks…
Dr. Steven Hotze: Yes, exactly. As a matter of fact, the nursing homes would be considered hospice light, because people that go to the nursing homes live on the average 2.3 years after they’ve been in there. 25% of all deaths in America every year occur in nursing home patients. That’s about 700,000.
Dr. Gary Null: That’s correct.
Dr. Steven Hotze: The fact that people die in nursing homes, the people, they’re dying in nursing homes. Hello? That’s why they’re in nursing homes, that’s the last stage.
Dr. Gary Null: You’re there to die. You’re not there to live.
Dr. Steven Hotze: Right. Now, doctor, I want to…
Dr. Gary Null: They’re giving the wrong credit. They said the COVID virus was the cause, but it wasn’t. All the scientific studies show that people were told and influenced by the CDC, just write COVID death.
Dr. Steven Hotze: Right, exactly, and they got paid for it. Well, doctor, we appreciate you being here with us. We need to continue the discussion.
Stacey Bandfield: Absolutely. This is so fascinating.
Dr. Steven Hotze: Fascinating. I am so very impressed. We’ve been with Dr. Gary Null, author of 70 books, but the book that I am most interested in, and you should be most interested in, is Death By Medicine. That’s the fact that conventional doctors, through the different treatments they have, putting you in the hospital, medication, surgeries, and a host of other treatments, that doctors give are the leading cause of death. When doctors don’t treat patients and patients don’t have doctors, guess what? There’s a fall on the death rate in society, which we’ve seen over the last four months.
Stacey Bandfield: Yes. Dr. Null, just quickly, how can people find you? What’s the best way to find you online?
Dr. Gary Null: The best way for people to read the articles that I’ve written, I’m writing about three articles a week and these are very profound articles on 5G technology and why it’s bad and don’t buy into the commercials and read the different articles on health, is to go to PRN, that’s PRN as in Progressive Radio Network, .fm. PRN.fm. I put up all my documentaries. I have dozens of documentaries, award-winning documentaries, they’re there free for people to watch, and everything that they need.
One last thing, I’ll throw one last quick thing at you. I think one of the worst things that’s going to happen is mandatory COVID virus vaccine sponsored by Bill Gates. Here’s the latest study. This is from Biovac 19. This is a peer-reviewed journal, QRB Discovery, it’s of a Cambridge University coronavirus collection and it’s by a physician from Norway and the foundation professor of oncology, St. George’s University of London and the Institute of Infection and Immunology of London. You’ve got some real heavyweights – Dr. Sorenson and a Dr. Susrud and a Dr. Dagleish.
Here’s what they’re saying. They’re saying that they are finishing studies on a COVID-19 virus vaccine. However, they’re designing it because they feel that this is not a naturally-occurring and evolving virus. It was man-made and even weaponized. They said that the other vaccines being made now could end up causing people to get sick and die because they’re not looking at this as if it were a genetically-altered engineered vaccines. So their vaccine against the COVID virus 19 is based upon they’re working with a manufactured one. They give all the explanations in their abstract.
Imagine now that they’re not the ones who make it to market. Imagine that one of the other ones sponsored by the Anthony Fauci crowd, the National Institution of Infection Allergy, bring one that has not been…remember, they’re fast tracking it. That means you’re not going to have the animal studies.
Dr. Steven Hotze: That’s right. They’re not going to have animal studies.
Dr. Gary Null: They’re not going to have human studies.
Dr. Steven Hotze: If you’ll remember, there’s no double-blind studies on vaccines, folks.
Dr. Gary Null: That’s correct.
Dr. Steven Hotze: Doctor, we’re going to have to close down right now. We could listen for an hour here.
Stacey Bandfield: Oh, we could go for hours on this. We absolutely could. There’s so much great information.
Dr. Steven Hotze: We’ve got another program coming on right now. In fact, I’m a minute behind.
Stacey Bandfield: But it’s so good.
Dr. Gary Null: Okay, nice to speak with you all and I look forward to our next conversation.
Dr. Steven Hotze: Thank you so much. Thank you so much, Dr. Null.
Stacey Bandfield: God bless you and the work that you do.
Dr. Steven Hotze: That’s with Dr. Gary Null. Be sure to look him up online. He is full of information about natural approaches to health and I think you’d benefit from that. Thanks so much for being with us, Dr. Null.
Stacey Bandfield: Absolutely. Thank you for joining us here today on Dr. Hotze’s Wellness Revolution.
