Making the US 99% of WE THE PEOPLE feel going back to STONE AGE medicine where MEDICAL SPAs sold the only public health-----that was BATHING, WASHING HAIR, TRIMMING NAILS, OILING SKIN.
So, our US 99% will be OK not being able to access any metals for ordinary tools in this case for medicine because we can go out and dig up OBSIDIAN FLINT for our tools.
LOOKS LIKE THOSE NEOLITHIC 3000BC STONE AGE CITIZENS WERE QUITE THE BARBER SURGEONS.
Stone Age surgery discovered after 7,000-year-old man found with expertly amputated arm
By Daily Mail Reporter
Updated: 07:58 EDT, 26 January 2010
Evidence of surgery carried out nearly 7,000 year ago has emerged – suggesting our Stone Age ancestors were more medically advanced than first thought.
Early Neolithic surgeons used a sharpened flint to amputate the left forearm of an elderly man, scientists have discovered.
And, more remarkable yet, they ensured the patient was anaesthetised and the limb cut off cleanly while the wound was treated afterwards in sterile conditions.
Scientists unearthed evidence of the surgery during work on tomb discovered at Buthiers-Boulancourt, about 40 miles south of Paris.
It suggests an incredible degree of medical knowledge was available in 4900BC and the revelation could force a reassessment of the history of surgery.
Researchers have also recently reported signs of two other Neolithic amputations in Germany and the Czech Republic.
It was known that Stone Age doctors performed trephinations, cutting through the skull, but not amputations.
‘The first European farmers were therefore capable of quite sophisticated surgical acts,’ said a spokesman for the French National Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research.
Cécile Buquet-Marcon and Anaick Samzun, both archaeologists, and Philippe Charlier, a forensic scientist, discovered the Neolithic surgery while researching the tomb of an elderly man.
The man, who lived in the Linearbandkeramik period, when European hunter-gatherers settled down to agriculture, stock-breeding and pottery, was clearly important.
His grave was 6.5ft long - bigger than most - and contained a schist axe, a flint pick and the remains of a young animal, which are evidence of high status.
The most intriguing aspect, however, was the absence of forearm and hand bones.
Tests showed that the humerus bone had been cut above the trochlea indent at the end ‘in an intentional and successful amputation’.
Mrs Buquet-Marcon said that the patient, who is likely to have been a warrior, might have damaged his arm in a fall, animal attack or battle.
‘I don’t think you could say that those who carried out the operation were doctors in the modern sense that they did only that, but they obviously had medical knowledge,’ she said.
A flintstone almost certainly served as a scalpel.
Mrs Buquet-Marcon said that pain-killing plants were likely to have been used, perhaps the hallucinogenic Datura.
‘We don’t know for sure, but they would have had to find some way of keeping him still during the operation,’ she said.
Other plants, possibly sage, were probably used to clean the wound.
‘The macroscopic examination has not revealed any infection in contact with this amputation, suggesting that it was conducted in relatively aseptic conditions,’ said the scientists in an article for the journal Antiquity.
The patient survived the operation and, although he suffered from osteoarthritis, he lived for months, perhaps years, afterwards, tests revealed.
Despite the loss of his forearm, the contents of his grave showed that he remained part of the community.
‘His disability did not exclude him from the group,’ the researchers said.
'Obsidian can be used to make sharp cutting tools. It is a hard stone to work, but the thin flakes can be shaped and turned into very effective knives. It is more brittle than metal, but it keeps its cutting edge longer. Obsidian is so sharp, it was used to make surgical knives until fairly recently in modern western medicine. They were used to remove cataracts on the eye, but lasers have replaced them around 1980'.
But don't worry, global banking 1% are working as hard as they can to deplete even OBSIDIAN FLINT as stone natural resources----because after all what makes a tennis shoe sell faster than PRETENDING OBSIDIAN flint coatings will extend the life of a shoe. All of our vital OBSIDIAN FLINT being squandered by global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS.
The US 99% WE THE PEOPLE will not even be able to find the occasional FLINT MINE for our medical surgical tools.
We think VANDAL is a good product name for NIKE ---the top gun of global banking FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONE enslaving global factories sucking our US citizens' dry with profiteering prices. No global corporations should have DEVIL'S HORN freemason signs as advertisement more than NIKE.

In the AFFORDABLE CARE ACT having as that goal of taking 99% WE THE PEOPLE back to DARK AGES medicine there are lots of GORILLA concerns-----the one the stands out throughout THE PHYSICIAN is ROB Js talent for giving a physical exam that allowed him to assess whether a patient would live or die. The central theme of THE PHYSICIAN was how critical it was for a REAL PHYSICIAN to not only come to the profession with these 'GIFTS' ----but how critical it is for a physician to be the BEST to believe in his/her talents and experience KNOWING the HUMAN BODY not only through dissection ----but the aura of energies that run through each individual's body----we call it LIFE FORCE for one.
THERE IS NOTHING TODAY HAVING BEEN DEVELOPED OR IS ANYWHERE NEAR BEING DEVELOPED IN TELEMEDICINE THAT DOES THIS THROUGH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.

The Cole Trilogy: The Physician, Shaman, and Matters of Choice Kindle Edition
by Noah Gordon
Noah Gordon’s acclaimed trilogy, spanning one thousand years in the lives of one uncommonly gifted family
In The Physician, an orphan in eleventh-century London, Robert Cole, becomes a fast-talking swindler. As he matures, his strange gift—an acute sensitivity to impending death—never leaves him, and he yearns to become a healer. Arab madrassas are the only authentic medical schools, and he makes his perilous way to Persia. Christians are barred from Muslim schools, but by claiming he is a Jew, he studies under the world’s most renowned physician, Avicenna. Cole’s journey and love for a woman who must struggle against her only rival—medicine—make The Physician a riveting modern classic.
In Shaman, Dr. Robert Judson Cole, nineteenth-century descendent of the first Robert Cole, travels from his ravaged Scottish homeland, through the operating rooms of antebellum Boston, to the cabins of frontier Illinois. In the wilderness he befriends the starving remnants of the Sauk tribe, who have fled their reservation. In the process, he absorbs their culture and learns native remedies that enrich his classical medical education. He marries a remarkable settler woman he had saved from illness. The Cole family is drawn into the bloody vortex of the Civil War, and their determination to survive in the midst of wilderness and violence will stay with the reader long after the final page.
In Matters of Choice, Roberta Jeanne d’Arc Cole is the latest first-born descendant of Dr. Robert Cole. Favored to be named associate chief of medicine at a Boston hospital, she is married to a surgeon and owns a trophy residence in Cambridge as well as a summer house. But everything melts away. Her gender and her work at an abortion clinic cost her the hospital appointment. Her marriage fails. Crushed, she goes to her farmhouse in western Massachusetts, thinking to sell it, and finds an unexpected life. How she continues to fight for every woman’s right to choose, while acknowledging her own ticking clock and maternal yearning, makes this prize-winning third story of the Cole trilogy relevant and unforgettable.
What is clear today in MOVING FORWARD our 99% of US WE THE PEOPLE back to having NO REAL INFORMATION---being exposed to only COMMONER CORE-----taken back to those superstitions to explain natural events-----ROB J was unable to practice being a REAL PHYSICIAN because LONDON/EUROPE was still so tied to pagan religious belief those BARBER SURGEONS being able to frame him as WITCH.
Now, as distant as MEDIEVAL EUROPE was from what was then the intellectual world of the MEDITERRANEAN-----PERSIAN MEDICAL SCHOOLS were known by global 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS in Europe and UK------they in fact brought those real PHYSICIANS graduates of these ARABIC MEDICAL SCHOOLS to treat their royal families. So, those BARBER SURGEONS playing to not knowing the current medical discoveries mostly tied to those royal families often used SUPERSTITION in literally killing the competition. Labeling a practitioner of healing whether HERBALISTS or graduates of ARABIC MEDICAL SCHOOLS filled the DARK AGES and deliberately fueled the 99% of citizens back then with FAKE SUPERSTITIOUS information regarding real medical benefits.
'"People who try to seek their own fortunes are deceived by these. The devil loves these herbs and mingles with them.”'
Global 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS promote pagan superstitions knowingly------that is the goal of MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION where only the global 1% receives REAL PHYSICIAN medical treatment and our 99% of WE THE PEOPLE are exposed to all kinds of pagan superstitions that will make families actually work against attaining MODERN ORDINARY HEALTH CARE FOR DISEASE VECTORS able to be treated for little cost.
Please think about the goals of global 1% and their control over the corruption of our 99% early religions. Those medieval BARBER SURGEONS were mostly tied to royal families------directly or indirectly---and many were tied to being FAKE religious leaders who without coincidence were the source of all that was SUPERSTITION surrounding the advancement of MEDICINE throughout the DARK AGES. It was not RELIGIOUS texts that created hardships in medical advancement---it was GLOBAL 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS trying to keep these advancements to themselves.
MOVING FORWARD CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA now TRUMP has our US cities deemed FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES moving back to 1000BC DARK AGES deliberately creating societal conditions for our 99% to be killing themselves softly through believing SUPERSTITIONS.
Superstition and Medieval Medicine
Updated on July 8, 2017
Rebecca Graf is a seasoned writer with nearly a decade of experience and degrees in accounting, history, and creative writing.
The Power of Superstition
Science did not have the power that superstition had over Medieval society. The unknown allowed superstition to fill in the gaps and give explanations for events: “a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation.”
Much of medicine involved a measure of superstition as much of anatomy was unknown leading to high levels of superstition. The limited amount of anatomical knowledge made prognosis “reduced to lists of signs or divination.” Chemistry was also not completely understood which meant the use of herbs and medications was open to superstitious beliefs. Charms and words used as incantations were mixed with the use of herbs in the belief that they gave the medicine extra power.
Science was a Mystery
What was not understood was that there was science behind these acts. Even the religious incorporated these practices as “prayers and charms are offered without apology.” The naïve beliefs of many of those in medicine can be found in many of the texts that survive. Very knowledgeable and intelligent people believed in much of the folklore and herbal lore that existed at the time.
In an attempt to understand the menstrual cycle or menses of a woman, the medicinal teaching said that “on account of the excessive heating of the blood caused by bile pouring out from the gall bladder, which makes the blood boil to such an extent that it is not able to be contained in the veins.” They also believed that a “burning cupping glasses [should] be placed between the breasts so that they draw the blood upwards.” Superstition was considered a science by many.
St. Hildegard was a renown German nun in the twelfth century. Throughout Europe and the church community, Hildegard was known for her wisdom and knowledge of herbs. She taught many how to use herbs and wrote a manuscript on herbs of such a size that had never been seen before. She reviewed the properties of grain, plants, and flowers as well as the many uses. She stated that certain herbs have the virtue of very strong aromas, others the harshness of the most pungent aromas. They can curb many evil, since evil spirits do not like them. But there are also certain herbs that hold the form of the elements. People who try to seek their own fortunes are deceived by these. The devil loves these herbs and mingles with them.”
Even one as wise as a saint looked at the superstitious and spiritual use of herbs. In describing Ginger, St. Hildegard described it as “injurious and should be avoided as food by both a healthy person and a fat person because it makes the person unknowing, ignorant, lukewarm, and lustful.” Folklore was not exactly forbidden in the Church. It was when folklore went deeper into the spiritual realm that the Church began to fear that aspect of medicine.
Many of these superstitions led to the use of witchcraft in medicine. Charms and incantations were used in the administration of medicine as well as a belief in demons and witches causing diseases. Numerous Medieval people saw diseases being caused by “the entrance into the body of demons or evil spirits.” Many accused witches of looking at individuals with the ‘evil eye’ to cause diseases or to push the demons into the body. There had to be an explanation for the disease. If God can cure a disease, then the devil must be able to cause it.
During the Crusades, German knights saw God as giving power to herbs, objects in nature, and even in the words spoken by the knights. This allowed the knights to use incantations to help in the healing of wounds that occurred during battle. Much emphasis was placed on the magic of herbs.
The belief that the herbs contained such power brought the tabooed form of magic into the field of medicine, but many like the knights saw the incantations as being Christian in origin which made them acceptable. God made nature which meant that power could be found in nature when the right words called forth the power.
The Church took this need of having the supernatural involved in healing and made a version of it acceptable within the church. The veneration of saints brought the focus of miracles back to the Church and God. Saints were thought to give victory in war, help in everyday life, miracles, and even to cure people. This was encouraged by the Church. The focus was taken off the medical professional and nature.
As the practice of venerating saints increased, shrines were erected. Anyone who desired to ask the saint for a cure or a special favor would take a pilgrimage to the shrine no matter how far away it was. Upon arriving they gave gifts to the monasteries where most shrines were located. Obviously, the Church would not discourage such practices.
What we see today in all global banking 1% media outlets is this------don't worry, our US PHYSICIANS will not be replaced with ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE when in fact that is the global MOVING FORWARD AFFORDABLE CARE ACT.
REAL left social progressive academics last century shouted that our US FARMERS were losing touch with natural events critical for growing food when they allowed GLOBAL BIG AG and the far-right wing global banking GREEN REVOLUTION killed our American standards of food growing along with killing the natural ties to crops----soil bacteria----pollinating insects----. Our US citizens lost touch with knowing NATURAL WEATHER PATTERNS to know what crop to plant when to plant them. We don't look to the sky to figure what our seasons will look like---we cannot often even navigate by STARS and CONSTELLATIONS.
We shouted when CLINTON GLOBAL BANKING NEO-LIBERALS pushed calculators in our US public schools as early as elementary school causing our US students to lose touch with basic math skills-----our cell phones are killing our ability to think for ourselves---to know how to research for real information----we cannot even memorize telephone numbers----we simply push buttons.
This is what has already begun to occur for our US medical students being trained to be BARBER SURGEONS. They are completely losing that natural GIFT of diagnosis because they are told to simply push buttons and rely more and more and more and more----on artificial intelligence. What happens for our 99% WE THE PEOPLE when all of our US DOCTORS no longer have that basic medical knowledge---what happens when our K-UNIVERSITY stops educating our 99% WE THE PEOPLE on basic medical and anatomy ----because that is what MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION where only the global 1% have access to ordinary modern health care.
'“We need to find solutions that scale the capacity of existing doctors to serve more patients at the same or cheaper cost,” says Jay Komarneni, founder and chair of Human Dx'.
Remember, our once strong US medical institutions filled with TRAPPER JOHN/HAWKEYE----ROB J THE PHYSICIANS-----released medical data that was public interest----it was peer-reviewed to assure it met with the strongest of scientific method. These few decades of CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA installing BARBER SURGEONS working for predatory profiteering gateway medicine has that data corrupted. So, SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN-----SCIENCE----NATURE all top global medical journals are now filled with global banking FAKE DATA.
No one knows better than these 5% global banking player BARBER SURGEONS-----that our 99% of citizens are NOT BEING SERVED with first world developed nations last century modern health care

Can a Crowdsourced AI Medical Diagnosis App Outperform Your Doctor?
The Human Dx platform aims to improve the accuracy of individual physicians
- By Jeremy Hsu on August 11, 2017 Scientific American
Shantanu Nundy recognized the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis when his 31-year-old patient suffering from crippling hand pain checked into Mary’s Center in Washington, D.C. Instead of immediately starting treatment, though, Nundy decided first to double-check his diagnosis using a smartphone app that helps with difficult medical cases by soliciting advice from doctors worldwide. Within a day, Nundy’s hunch was confirmed. The app had used artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze and filter advice from several medical specialists into an overall ranking of the most likely diagnoses. Created by the Human Diagnosis Project (Human Dx)—an organization that Nundy directs—the app is one of the latest examples of growing interest in human–AI collaboration to improve health care.
Human Dx advocates the use of machine learning—a popular AI technique that automatically learns from classifying patterns in data—to crowdsource and build on the best medical knowledge from thousands of physicians across 70 countries. Physicians at several major medical research centers have shown early interest in the app. Human Dx on Thursday announced a new partnership with top medical profession organizations including the American Medical Association and the Association of American Medical Colleges to promote and scale up Human Dx’s system. The goal is to provide timely and affordable specialist advice to general practitioners serving millions of people worldwide, in particular so-called "safety net" hospitals and clinics throughout the U.S. that offer access to care regardless of a patient’s ability to pay.
“We need to find solutions that scale the capacity of existing doctors to serve more patients at the same or cheaper cost,” says Jay Komarneni, founder and chair of Human Dx. Roughly 30 million uninsured Americans rely on safety net facilities, which generally have limited or no access to medical specialists. Those patients often face the stark choice of either paying out of pocket for an expensive in-person consultation or waiting for months to be seen by the few specialists working at public hospitals, which receive government funding to help pay for patient care, Komarneni says. Meanwhile studies have shown that between 25 percent and 30 percent (pdf) of such expensive specialist visits could be conducted by online consultations between physicians while sparing patients the additional costs or long wait times.
Komarneni envisions “augmenting or extending physician capacity with AI” to close this “specialist gap.” Within five years Human Dx aims to become available to all 1,300 safety net community health centers and free clinics in the U.S. The same remote consultation services could also be made available to millions of people around the world who lack access to medical specialists, Komarneni says.
How It Works
When a physican needs help diagnosing or treating a patient they pen the Human Dx smartphone app or visit the project’s Web page and type in their clinical question as well as their working diagnosis. The physician can also upload images and test results related to the case and add details such as any medication the patient takes regularly. The physician then requests help, either from specific colleagues or the network of doctors who have joined the Human Dx community. Over the next day or so Human Dx’s AI program aggregates all of the responses into a single report. It is the new digital equivalent of a “curbside consult” where a physician might ask a friend or colleague for quick input on a medical case without setting up a formal, expensive consultation, says Ateev Mehrotra, an associate professor of health care policy and medicine at Harvard Medical School and a physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. “It makes intuitive sense that [crowdsourced advice] would be better advice,” he says, “but how much better is an open scientific question.” Still, he adds, “I think it’s also important to acknowledge that physician diagnostic errors are fairly common.” One of Mehrotra's Harvard colleagues has been studying how the AI-boosted Human Dx system performs in comparison with individual medical specialists, but has yet to publish the results.
Mehrotra's cautionary note comes from research that he and Nundy published last year in JAMA Internal Medicine. That study used the Human Dx service as a neutral platform to compare the diagnostic accuracy of human physicians with third-party “symptom checker” Web sites and apps used by patients for self-diagnosis. In this case, the humans handily outperformed the symptom checkers’ computer algorithms. But even physicians provided incorrect diagnoses about 15 percent of the time, which is comparable with past estimates of physician diagnostic error.
Human Dx could eventually help improve the medical education and training of human physicians, says Sanjay Desai, a physician and director of the Osler Medical Training Program at Johns Hopkins University. As a first step in checking the service's capabilities, he and his colleagues ran a study where the preliminary results showed the app could tell the difference between the diagnostic abilities of medical residents and fully trained physicians. Desai wants to see the service become a system that could track the clinical performance of individual physicians and provide targeted recommendations for improving specific skills. Such objective assessments could be an improvement over the current method of human physicians qualitatively judging their less experienced colleagues. The open question, Desai says, is whether the “algorithms can be created to provide finer insights into an [individual] doctor’s strengths and weaknesses in clinical reasoning.”
AI-Assisted Health CareHuman Dx is one of many AI systems being tested in health care. The IBM Watson Health unit is perhaps the most prominent, with the company for the past several years claiming that its AI is assisting major medical centers and hospitals in tasks such as genetically sequencing brain tumors and matching cancer patients to clinical trials. Studies have shown AI can help predict which patients will suffer from heart attacks or strokes in 10 years or even forecast which will die within five. Tech giants such as Google have joined start-ups in developing AI that can diagnose cancer from medical images. Still, AI in medicine is in its early days and its true value remains to be seen. Watson appears to have been a success at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, yet it floundered at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, although it is unclear whether the problems resulted from the technology or its implementation and management.
The Human Dx Project also faces questions in achieving widespread adoption, according to Mehrotra and Desai. One prominent challenge involves getting enough physicians to volunteer their time and free labor to meet the potential rise in demand for remote consultations. Another possible issue is how Human Dx's AI quality control will address users who consistently deliver wildly incorrect diagnoses. The service will also require a sizable user base of medical specialists to help solve those trickier cases where general physicians may be at a loss.
In any case, the Human Dx leaders and the physicians helping to validate the platform's usefulness seem to agree that AI alone will not take over medical care in the near future. Instead, Human Dx seeks to harness both machine learning and the crowdsourced wisdom of human physicians to make the most of limited medical resources, even as the demands for medical care continue to rise. “The complexity of practicing medicine in real life will require both humans and machines to solve problems,” Komarneni says, “as opposed to pure machine learning.”
