Doctors Who Jumped Ship (Part 7: Jennifer Daniels)

Jennifer Daniels, MD, MBA this week
and Andrew Kaufman, MD next week

This video below is a special treat of two local peeps near my town who got together via zoom to chat about their ethical challenges regarding medical standards and how they stepped out on their own to provide healing care to their patients.  

Who else made the list?  Click Here. 

I met Jennifer Daniels when I was an intern in my outpatient clinic during my last year of chiropractic college. It  was the year 2000.  She was gathering information about her practice in order to face a state board complaint regarding a patient who wasn't on insulin but ended up in the emergency room after returning from a celebratory vacation, drinking heavily and ignoring dietary advice Dr. Daniels had given him.  Her patients were rallying behind her writing testimonial letters explaining how much she helped them.  

She was aware that she was on the outskirts of the medical community.  She knew that pharmaceutical reps were not pleased that she wasn't prescribing their latest and greatest, heavily marketed drugs.  Hospitals were upset that her patients weren't needing admittance.  She also informed her neighborhood of a back room political deal that would have financially harmed the tax payers  and defraud a local bank.  

At first glance you would be relieved to hear patients were not needing hospital care.  Dr. Daniels even noted her decrease in prescribing also decreased the death rate in her patient population.  People were healthier and enjoying their lives. 

But, in the medical business world, every doctor's professional actions are tracked.  It is now common knowledge that doctors who do not write a certain number of prescriptions are audited and forced to pay back insurance reimbursements.  

Countless medical doctors who offer natural treatments have anonymous complaints lodged against them even when no patient is harmed. 

In the end after much legal juggling, Dr. Daniels decided to move on with her life and gave up on getting her medical license reinstated. She was subjected to unfair rules and other professionals were afraid to risk their own professional livelihoods if they offered to supervise her.  The agreement that would slowly allow her to regain her medical license was financially burdensome.  

The biggest lesson for me as a health care practitioner who watched this happen is how regimented and oppressive the medical industry is with so much controlled by government policies.  In a profession where a second opinion is promoted as your right, the options are very limited.  In America you have so many choices of homes, clothing, cars, etc., yet your ability to choose what kind of health care you prefer is nothing of the sort.  

This doesn't bother most people until they are dealing with an unexpected health problem.  There is also a strong belief that insurance plans owe you a high quality health care experience.  Sadly, this is not the case.  

If  average private citizens don't want the surprise of an untreatable disease, or many long drawn out years of decline, they have to educate themselves on the stark difference between prevention and intervention.

This is what medical doctors like Dr. Daniels are doing now.  They spend their time educating the public on how to maintain control before a hospital experience takes away someone's ability make his or her own assertive decisions.

If you're interested in listening to Dr. Daniels' podcasts, look for her videos on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/user6590984 or her Facebook page titled "Healing with Dr. Daniels."

Next week, look for Dr. Andrew Kaufman's biography.

Doctors Who Jumped Ship (Part 6: Gary Fettke, MD

Cancer survivor barred from talking about diet to save his diabetic patients

Who else made the list?  Check here.

In Australia, the Medical Board of Tasmania told Dr. Fettke he could not give nutritional advice to his patients.  Why?  Was any of his patients harmed? No.  The complaint was delivered anonymously. 

Dr. Fettke is naturally a intriguing person.  An orthopedic surgeon, he also survived brain cancer.  (Read his cancer story here.) He says himself that he was tired of amputating the legs of diabetic patients are began promoting a low carb high fat diet to them.  He then hoped to improve the food offerings at the hospital where he worked.  

Hospital food guidelines recommend two desserts with biscuits and other carbohydrate foods as part of a normal meal for diabetics.  This is not actually healthy for anyone, diabetic or not.  If you recall in a previous blog I explained Dr. Joseph Kraft's findings that more than 90% of teenagers are already prediabetic.

When a hospital dietician made a complaint, he was informed that he was speaking outside of his scope of practice.  He soon made the decision to leave the hospital and not renew his contract.   He stated in interviews that he could not be the best physician under the rules put on him and accused the board of  bullying.

When my patients share with me their medical chart notes I still see the outdated advice of low fat, low salt diets.  Food manufacturers still add huge amounts of sugar to make low fat foods taste good and we wonder why obesity is such an epidemic.  People still think Dr. Atkins was fringe and that saturated fat will kill us. 

Old habits are hard to break.  And old lies are hard to give up.  Dr. Ancel Keys, a physiologist who was given a number of conscientious objectors to experiment on during his starvation studies during WWII, gave us the poorly studied hypothesis that saturated fat was harmful. 

It took a couple of years, but eventually Dr. Fettke was completely exonerated and given a flimsy apology.

His wife, Belinda, documents some of his story in the blog http://www.nofructose.com.  She discusses the risks imposed on free speech as well as the potential harm to patients who get progressively worse on outdated food pyramid, especially the terrible effects it has on children.  

Follow Dr. Fettke's story here.  And also check out his talks on the YouTube Channel: Low Carb Down Under.  He has remained very busy as a speaker and teacher spreading his mission to reduce suffering with simple food changes.
