IHH 8: Physician Depression And Suicide

Integrative Hermetic Health with Johnny Blue Star

According to   medical doctor Louise Andrew,   in an article on Physician suicide in Medscape, for over 150  years, it has been known that medical doctors have a very high rate of suicide: It was estimated in 1977 that on average the United States loses the equivalent of at least one small medical school or a large medical school class to suicide... the number most often used is approximately 3-400 physicians/year, or perhaps a doctor a day. Of all occupations and professions, the medical profession consistently hovers near the top of occupations with the highest risk of death by suicide.” In this program, Hugo Rodier, M.D., an integrative physician, describes his awareness of the  potential dangers of depression for medical students and doctors at the beginning of his training - and then goes into  to the facts and reality of this curious situation and how to invoke change. 

A key problem leading to doctor burn-out, the preliminary condition prior to true clinical depression- is the little fact of the mammoth amount of paperwork doctors need to deal with in order to conform to the insurance companies. Doctor Rodier then describes the multiple warning signs and symptoms of depression, often somewhat masked by the psychological quirks  of medical practitioners both for associates of the doctor and the doctor  himself. If medical doctors have this kind of challenges, medical students have even more, an important topic of discussion in this program. Many other factors of this problem are discussed- as well as presenting a comprehensive way of tackling this problem, one that involves, perhaps, considerable reform of the entire system. As often expressed by Doctor Rodier, medical doctors generally vastly underestimate the value of nutrition in treating medical conditions; costs for a patient spiral because of the high cost of often unneeded specialists and pharmaceutical products that merely suppress symptoms in addition to the financial costs of using insurance companies instead of utilizing a single payer system. 

Bottom line- the medical profession has a sacred function- and the true calling card to be a doctor is a sense of compassion and desire to be of service to the afflicted. When you take away the sacred mission of a doctor by putting financial and red tape before his actual duty to the patient, you take away his mission as an individual and as a physician. Physician suicide points to a desperate problem in our overly technical and overly money-driven culture affecting the reality and happiness of all of us.

New Galaxy Broadcasting proudly presents Integrative Hermetic Health with Hugo Rodier, M.D. In this program, we explore a powerful new paradigm for heath from the standpoint of Integrative Medicine. In his practice, Doctor Rodier integrates ancient hermetic art and the enduring role of food as medicine with modern nutrition but also allowing for the wide range of important health practices including truly valuable medical discoveries, chiropractic, acupuncture, homeopathic and herbal medicine. In this program, Hugo Rodier, an expert in intestinal health and nutrition, will help the audience discover an approach that focuses on actual cures, not the masking of the elegant, simplicity of many health solutions for the sake of profit. Profit too long has been an overriding motive of the pharmaceutical companies and sometimes sadly by many in the medical establishment today. 

Some say that the history of medicine has been continually evolving since the time of the ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates. But today, some experienced and knowledgeable doctors, to differ. They clearly see, , forms of medical treatment that often serve to suppress symptoms with pharmaceuticals that have dangerous if not fatal side effects, recommendations for surgical intervention that place profitability over well-being of their patients. These doctors refuse to include in their practice the many modern and ancient health disciplines utilizing herbs, homeopathic remedies, acupuncture and, above all, the power of nutrition. Many of the most useful insights are grounded in hermetic science, developed hundreds of years ago. Hugo Rodier, M.D., author, broadcaster and practicing physician has spent his career focusing on nutrition and intestinal health. In fact, only now medical journals are coming to terms with guiding points of view he had realized decades ago. Please join with me, Johnny Blue Star, as I assist Doctor Rodier in his new program, Integrative Hermetic Health. 

That so often provides drugs to cover up and suppress symptoms with pharmaceuticals that create dangerous, if over the last few decades, a relatively small number of medical doctors have begun to wonder, looking at the vast limitations of modern medicine to actually deal effectively with the rise of auto-immune diseases and the  unfortunate dangerous and even lethal sound effects of pharmaceuticals, that perhaps we have truly lost more than we have gained- and we are glossing over symptoms.
