Publisher's Summary

Without any fear of repercussion or rejection, Thomas and Sarah lead you through a compelling, never-before-seen exposure of widespread fraud in mainstream and alternative medicine in Defy Your Doctor and Be Healed. This book is meant to be more than just an investigation of fraudulent medicine - it's intended to save your life. It's sure to be provocative as you'll learn much of what you're told or sold by medical "authorities" and the media can be reduced to cleverly devised narratives or pathways for profiteering. As you learn the ins-and-outs, you'll be given the tools and knowledge to take charge of your health with confidence.

As the veteran "health detectives" of Health Wyze Media, Thomas and Sarah have earned enduring reputations for asking tough questions and getting unpopular answers. They are the producers of The Health Wyze Report, a hard, in-depth look at the truth behind today's orthodox and alternative medicine, and The Cancer Report, a documentary about the cancer industry and its alternatives.

Defy Your Doctor and Be Healed is the culmination of five years of in-depth, uncompromising medical research and reporting. Its premise is simple: it approaches standard and alternative medicine from a scientific standpoint, examining their goods and ills. It also asserts that the human body has natural healing abilities and that the answers to most of our health dilemmas are so close to us that we're unable to see them.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is a treasure trove of natural health and healing info. There's so much to cover but a few things are..

    Corruption in the FDA and pharmaceutical companies. Generally just a corrupt medical system.

    Breast cancer and Pink washing. How corrupt the Susan G. Komen Foundation is.

    Prescription antidepressant drugs and there link to violence and suicide.

    Links between vaccinations and not just autism but a whole array of nasty side effects.

    Hormones and antibiotics in factory farmed meat and dairy.

    Liver and heavy metal detoxing.

    Infertility, natural birth, cesareans and toxic feminine hygiene products.

    Excitotoxins like aspartame and MSG.

    Why factory farmed meats are so unhealthy.

    Why modern farming leads to nutritionally deficient food.

    Other topics include
    Cosmetics
    Soy
    BPA
    Juicing
    Supplements
    Fluoride
    GMO's
    Hypothyroidism

    This book is extremely anti abortion, anti feminism and anti gay. It mentions "militant feminists" and is very critical of planned parenthood. Mention was made of how aborted fetuses are sold for medical research. Which as any educated person should know is a big misconception.

    A few points I really disagree with is green super foods like a Spirulina, seaweed and alge. The author states they are unfit for human consumption and marketing frauds. I am a big believer in using Spirulina and have used it for years. And there is plenty of research to back up the benefits. Also mushrooms are a wonderful healing tool that they totally disregard. Silica supplementation and HCG therapy have been proven effective many times over. They also call Vegetarianism a cult. Which is extremely disrespectful to people making a personal lifestyle choice.

    I do feel that the book demonizes doctors. They are a symptom of a corrupt system. Not the cause. Doctors on the whole are very well meaning, they are brainwashed from the get go and by the educational system and pharmaceutical companies. Which are both of course inherently corrupt.

    Im very uncomfortable with the repeated mention of "Gods medicine". This leaves me personally with a very bad impression, and a feeling that the author is biased. They aren't helping the cause by looking like a religious nuts. When you come off as fanatical it's just not believable. Also political views crept into this book. Which again suggests bias, I do not want to hear about the authors personal religious or political views while reading a supposedly natural health and healing book. The saving grace was this book was very well researched. They list references and the actual reasons behind there conclusions. The authors would have been far more credible if they had simply stuck to scientific fact.

    In the end this book was seriously overshadowed by personal religious and political views. The authors come off as fanatical. There is a lot of really great info in here. Well researched and science based. But the authors personal views ruined the delivery.

    The narrator did an awesome job.

    "Great informative book that everyone should read!"
    What made the experience of listening to Defy Your Doctor and Be Healed the most enjoyable?

    There is so much information in this book that explains a lot of health issues every family faces, why it happens and what should and shouldn't be done about it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Defy Your Doctor and Be Healed?

    The discussion about Michael J. Fox made me both sad and angry.


    Which character – as performed by Philip D. Moore – was your favorite?

    Philip did a great job narrating this book. He made it easy to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This whole book moved me. It is informative, yet very scary.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very good book. It is extremely informative and there are many things in it that made sense to me. Everyone will find things in here they can relate to, but expect to get angry and disgusted several times. It is truly scary! I have already begun making different choices and will continue to do so, thanks to this book. I have already passed on some of this information. I definitely encourage everyone to read this book. It really is a matter of life and death.
