Feldenkrais vs. Surgery (also: ugh, Erb's prevention again)

  1. ERB'S CLASS ACTION?

    Maybe LA County DA Steve Cooley will file CRIMINAL charges to stop MDs from closing birth
    canals up to 30?

    THE SURGEON AND THE FELDENKRAIS "THING"

    FELDENKRAIS GUILD ([email protected]): LaTeesha is wondering about her two-year-old son
    Douglas with a brachial plexus injury - could Feldenkrais help. She mentioned seeing an article on
    Feldenkrais in the UBPN periodical (United Brachial Plexus Network - I hope I've interpreted that
    acronym correctly).

    Does the Feldenkrais Guild have a list of Feldenkrais practitioners who work with babies? Are you in
    contact with Anat - also mentioned by LaTeesha? It would be so nice if Anat or someone else who
    works with babies could come on erbscoollist and discuss.

    LaTeesha, Regarding Feldenkrais... I'm readinig The Elusive Obvious by the Founder, the late Moshe
    Feldenkrais. I think Feldenkrais the man was brilliant and that he passed his brilliance on to
    others... If *you* feel Feldenkrais is an alternative method that can be beneficial... Unless the
    surgery is an emergency - I would say go with your feeling about the "thing" - as your surgeon
    called it... A consultation with a Feldenkrais practitioner (one who works with babies might be
    best) could possibly be beneficial. Then again - as with surgery - there are no guarantees. That's
    the sad but true fact of the matter. Happy Birthday to little Douglas! Todd

    PS FELDENKRAIS VS. SURGERY

    (OR BETTER: GASTALDO VS. AMERICAN MEDICINE'S MOST FREQUENT SURGICAL BEHAVIORS)

    NOTE: THIS POST IS WORTH **BILLIONS** OF DOLLARS - IF DEPUTY DA BILL HODGMAN WOULD JUST DO HIS JOB
    FINALLY. (ATTENTION LA COUNTY DA STEVE COOLEY. See below.)

    READERS SHOULD NOT READ FURTHER UNLESS THEY DON'T MIND POINTED CRITICISM OF OBVIOUSLY ILLEGAL
    SURGEON BEHAVIORS.

    (Just because MD-funded/influenced law enforcement is not prosecuting does NOT mean crime is not
    occurring.)

    I think surgeons are wizards - but surgeons tend to be surgical chauvinists - anti-scientifically so
    - sometimes illegally so - sometimes fatally so.

    Here are a few examples from my post, "Sen. Frist, infant penis care," URL below.

    1. When back surgeons (orthopedic surgeons) were discovered anti-scientifically performing multiple
    "failed back surgeries," they used their political muscle to GUT the federal agency (AHCPR) that
    deigned to publish evidence of their anti-science. An AMA lap dog agency called AHRQ was born,
    see URL below.

    AHCPR (now-gutted) published scientific evidence recommending chiropractic-like spinal manipulation
    which the orthopedic surgeons had been calling "quackery."

    2. When I discovered pediatric surgeons (effectively defending obstetric surgeons) telling parents
    the lie that "babies can't feel pain" - and using phony neurology (!) to promote American
    medicine's "no medical indication" most frequent surgical behavior toward males - the California
    Medical Association abruptly ignored its own Scientific Board and declared the grisly penile
    surgery (graphically described below) "an effective public health measure." (!)

    A possible REASON why "no medical indication" suddenly got converted into "effective public health
    measure"...

    still be - "unnecessary penetration of a genital orifice."

    In American medicine's most frequent surgical behavior toward males, MDs are

    indication!

    Most American male babies are tied/strapped to "Circumstraints" - spreadeagled - to "present" their
    genitalia. Their genital orifice (called the preputial niche) is unnecessarily penetrated and
    widened by ripping foreskin from glans. This is followed by AMPUTATION of this genital orifice amid
    screams of agony - though some babies are rendered unconscious by the pain. Some babies - "only" a
    few - lose their lives and/or their penises. Again, American medicine's newest (sometimes fatal)
    "public health measure" was considered officially NO MEDICAL INDICATION until I pointed out the
    phony "babies can't feel pain" neurology...

    3. Of course, American medicine's most frequent surgical behavior toward FEMALES is a grisly vaginal
    surgery - an en masse surgical/FRAUDULENT inference that MD-obstetricians are doing everything
    possible to OPEN birth canals - even as they CLOSE birth canals - up to 30%.

    Further regarding American medicine's obviously illegal most frequent surgical behavior
    toward males...

    The most bizarre thing happened when I asked Congress to create a religious exemption from the child
    abuse laws for Jews...

    Pediatric surgeons suddenly came out against ALL religious exemptions. In the same article they
    broached the subject of anonymity for perpetrators of child abuse!

    Imagine that! MDs were telling parents babies can't feel pain (!) - American parents were going
    along with the gag - and get this: An ostensibly "anti"-circumcision group NO CIRC (Marilyn Milos)
    remained silent about my discovery of organized medicine's "babies can't feel pain" lie. NO CIRC
    (Marilyn Milos) silently went along with the CMA's subsequent "public health measure" cover-up gag!
    (NO CIRC's Nurse Milos is a mandatory suspected child abuse reporter who used to say "Child Abuse
    Begins With Circumcision." As president of NO CIRC, she conducted a vote where the NO CIRC Board
    voted AGAINST reporting this obvious mass child abuse. When I put the issue, Nurse Milos suddenly
    couldn't think of any circumcisions to report! It was the most bizarre thing!)

    As most American infants are senselessly (obviously illegally) made to scream and writhe and bleed -
    $200 million dollars per year is being wasted! Paradoxically, stopping the screams would not only
    save the $200 million dollars per year - it would PRESERVE the surgery as a CHOICE American males
    could make for themselves in adulthood!

    abuse since I pointed out medicine's phony "babies can't feel pain" neurology in 1987!

    See Sen. Frist, infant penis care, dead babies - and AHRQ 'in-hospital safety events' http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-
    list/message/2019

    I have asked Bill Hodgman my old roomate from UCLA (now the deputy DA in

    "pedo-priest" MDs (as well as other MD "pedo-priests" who are not AMA members.)

    See FBI: AMA 'pedo-priests': Will DA Cooley prosecute? http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-
    list/message/2289

    abuse in California used to be defined as "unnecessary penetration of a genital orifice" - and
    American medicine's most frequent surgical behavior toward males involves AMPUTATION of a genital
    orifice - with no medical indication - with the California Medical Association abruptly ignoring its
    own Scientific Board and declaring the surgery "an effective public health measure" immediately
    after I exposed medicine's phony "babies can't feel pain" neurology. See above.

    Bill! $200 million dollar a year could be instantly saved! And stopping the infant screams would
    PRESERVE the surgery as a CHOICE!

    LaTeesha, I mention these obviously illegal behaviors of surgeons because you said your brachial
    plexus specialist (surgeon?) called Feldenkrais a "thing" and did not give a "straightforward"
    answer. Maybe there is good science behind your brachial plexus specialist's recommendation for
    surgery - maybe not. I just don't trust surgeons very much because of my experience with their
    ongoing anti-scientific behavior - SOME of which BTW -

    slashing - and is likely causing Erb's palsy. (See MDs paralyzing babies, URL below.)

    Bottomline... My feeling about Feldenkrais is in accord with yours. I think there is something
    special about Feldenkrais in Erb's cases - but I have no scientific proof - and I doubt the
    Feldenkrais folks have any scientific proof either. I would love to hear otherwise. My guess is that
    Feldenkrais practitioners say they try to help brachial plexus injured children before or after
    surgery - and sometimes it appears they can prevent the need for surgery. I will copy this post too
    to the Feldenkrais folks at [email protected]

    One final note...

    PREVENTION

    I am wondering why brachial plexus specialists/surgeons are not meeting their ethical obligation to
    PREVENT that which they charge to treat with surgery.

    See MDs paralyzing babies; Dr. Nath to help PREVENT Erb's palsy? http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-
    list/message/2291

    I'll cc Rahul Nath at [email protected]

    From the CIVIL law end of things (CRIMINAL is discussed above), I am wondering why birth trauma
    attorneys are not yet telling juries that MDs are senselessly closing birth canals up to 30%.

    ERB'S CLASS ACTION

    I am hoping mothers of children with obstetric brachial plexus injury can be organized into a class
    action lawsuit for financial compensation and to stop MDs from closing birth canals.

    Attorney Kathleen Zellner won $3,000,000 million dollars for one Erb's baby.

    See Attorney Kathleen Zellner's birth trauma jackpots... http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-
    list/message/2290

    I'll cc Kathleen at [email protected]

    LaTeesha, I am glad you appreciated my Feldenkrais post. I hope I have not offended by taking this
    opportunity to once again speak out about prevention.

    Even as I write this, babies are being gruesomely PULLED out of (and violently PUSHED out of) birth
    canals senselessly closed up to 30%.

    It makes me sad. ALL spinal manipulation with birth canals senselessly closed is gruesome. Sometimes
    it's fatal or paralyzing...

    It's a crime what MDs are doing - but I'm still in favor of pardons in advance for MDs. MDs are just
    academic prime cuts forced through this culture's most powerful mental meatgrinder - medical school.

    I'll cc this to LA County deputy DA Bill Hodgman and his boss DA Steve Cooley again via
