As scientific and research evidence mounts across a multitude of disciplines, it is increasingly becoming clearer that certain fundamental tenets / paradigms underlying treatment approaches to a variety of health conditions are flawed. Periodically, individual cases such as Charlie Gard who suffered from mitochondrial disease and died following withdrawal of his life-support systems explode into the public domain.

Now in its 23rd year, Positive Health PH Online continues to publish articles and research pointing out how certain conventional treatment (drug-led) approaches are apparently being based upon an incorrect disease paradigm (model). This has shed light upon alternative hypotheses / paradigms in the causes and treatments for the following conditions:

As production with Positive Health PH Online Issue 242 was underway, it was announced on 2 Oct 2017 by The Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet that the 2017 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Jeffrey C Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W Young for their discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythm.

Suppressing, ignoring and downright attacking research evidence of non-pharmaceutically derived, safe, usually natural and non-patentable herbs, nutrients, homeopathic and Ayurvedic remedies across a wide spectrum of health conditions including cancer, dentistry, cfs/me, depression, bodywork, immune resilience is no secret to readers of Positive Health PH Online as evidenced by countless articles and research updates published over the past almost quarter of a century.

In the almost 25 years since becoming Editor of Positive Health PH Online, I have never before felt as I do today such a complete polarization between the so-called orthodox / conventional and the complementary / alternative / natural treatment healthcare communities. With reference to PH Online - which covers a very wide spectrum of topics regarding health, embracing mind, body, emotions and spiritual - these schisms have been evident in treatment approaches to virtually all conditions including cancer, dentistry, cfs/me, depression, bodywork, immune resilience - almost since the launch of PH Online.

I was incredulous to hear on the news this week – Sept 2017 -  results of a five-year study of patients which reported that cyberchondria -  people researching health symptoms online and seeking medical attention - were “fuelling an epidemic of health anxiety”; psychiatrists suggested these “cases” should be offered counselling.

Editorials 238 Print Email

Issue 238 of Positive Health PH Online features Lyme Disease as the cover story, cases of which are soaring / exploding in the UK and USA as well as articles across a wide spectrum of subjects, including mental / spiritual health, eczema, nutritional, metabolic and environmental issues, and physical, exercise, sleep and cycling. The wide selection of subjects embracing divergent points of view has been a constant rationale for PH Online, postulating that diversity rather than fixed opinions / solutions encourage more questioning of ‘authority’ and ‘experts’, who have, as we have all seen, not yet arrived at the correct answers to health problems.

Having recently been invited by David Lorimer MA PGCE FRSA to write about what it has been like to edit Positive Health PH Online over more than 22 years virtually plunged me down a proverbial deep black hole of introspection; 22+ years is, after all, a quarter of a century.
