OIL & MEDICINE?
Commentary by Theresa AuCoin
Would you believe the OIL INDUSTRY directly shaped our current medical system? James Corbett produced a brilliant investigative journalism piece which revealed the immense extent to which the oil industry shaped and is ruling the world as we know it. Here are some points from the documentary for you to ponder.
First, Bill Rockefeller, with the fictional name, “Dr. Bill Livingston,” was a “snake oil salesman” in the early 19th century. This is a true story. Rockefeller, known as “Devil Bill” traveled around the country conning people into buying his elixirs as a tonic for cancer. The concoction was a mixture of laxative and petroleum that had no affect on a person’s health at all, according to Corbett. It was “snake oil!” Keep this in mind as you read on.
One of Bill’s numerous children from one of his (at least) 3 baby moma’s was John D. Rockefeller, who founded Standard Oil and became the world’s first billionaire. John’s father, going by the name of Livingston after being indicted for rape, bragged about his parenting techniques. He said “I cheat my boys every chance I get. I want to make ‘em sharp”… According to Corbett, the world we live in today is founded on ‘Devil Bill’s’ image, including treachery, deceit, and taking advantage of a naive public. That is, of course, Corbett’s opinion.
By age 40, John D. Rockefeller controlled 90 percent of the global oil refineries. Soon he also controlled 90 percent of the marketing of oil. Rockefeller’s worth grew to nearly 2 percent of the total US economy.
Corbett details how John D. Rockefeller donated $180 million to the establishment of the General Education Board so that he could control the education of future Americans. His educational goals included “having people yield themselves with perfect docility to our moving hand; not to raise up actors, orators, poets, or men of letters, nor to raise up lawyers, doctors, preachers,
politician, statesmen, of whom we now have ample supply.” I think you’ll agree, this is quite a disempowering focus.
At this time, naturopathic-based herbal medicine was accepted, normal and largely effective. Rockefeller shifted the medical industry toward using oil-derived pharmaceuticals. Rockefeller established the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in 1901. He hired Simon Flexner to write a report on the state of the American medical education system. This “Flexner Report” coupled with the hundreds of millions of dollars showered on medical research, changed the medical system. Any competitive medicinal system was deliberately eliminated. Naturopathic based herbal and homeopathic medicine fell into those ranks, as well as chiropractors, as they did not include using patentable pharmaceuticals. Therefore, only drug-based allopathic medicine using expensive medical procedures was considered worthy. The fortunes of Rockefeller, and Carnegie and Morgan financed surgery, radiation, and synthetic drugs, many of which were oil based.

Today, thankfully, there is a resurgence of the naturopathic systems. Chiropractors are now respected. Herbalists are in demand. Essential oils are a focus. Integrative MD’s and Functional MD’s are becoming more and more the top choice. Allopathic traditional MD’s are overall unhappy with their practices because they see so few improvements. After nearly a century of brainwashing the public into thinking the only worthy treatment of disease was a prescription, the tide is turning back to the realization that no one is having a deficiency of prozac or a statin or any other prescription. Although there is a definite place for life saving prescriptions, we know definitively that lifestyle choices dictate our overall long term health more than anything.
