Diagnose Diseases and Health Conditions
Many online sources are available as educational tools for the average person to research diseases and health conditions prior to seeing a physician, but these sources are not to be considered a substitute for a professional medical checkup, evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment. Many doctors prefer a patient who is well informed to discuss his health problem, but some would just rather the patient knew nothing.
The following website provides an excellent resource for investigating a possible disease or health condition based on the input of symptoms. Some medical online references only give a superficial review of the major ailments related to a group of symptoms, but this website gives a long list of possible causes, including those that are very remote.
The Isabel symptom Checker
"The Isabel Symptom Checker is very different. For the first time, it gives you access to a highly sophisticated medical diagnosis tool that is much more powerful than previously available symptom checkers. Using the latest searching technologies, the system can take a pattern of symptoms in everyday language and instantly compute from our vast database of 6,000 diseases, the most likely ones."
The following website provides an overwhelming amount of information about diseases, pathogens, drugs, and dosages that are not available from most medical references.

The following website gives manufacturers' data or fact sheet information but does not provide recommended dosages for treatment of any disease. Dosages are available in the website above. The following site allows the input of a wide range of drugs and a check for conflicting drug interactions that can be very important. The site also has reviews for many of the drugs from patients who have given their experience after taking the drug. The information is sometimes better than that provided by manufacturers who list a broad range of possible side effects without identifying the side effects that many patients complain about in the reviews.

Online Drug Purchases from International Sources
The battle continues among patients, doctors, insurance companies, drug manufacturers, and government agencies over the rapidly growing international market for pharmaceuticals. The United States allows the import of a great many prescription drugs from international suppliers as long as they are not forbidden illegal narcotics. Some websites ask health question that are reviewed by a physician before accepting an order. People who travel worldwide often see doctors in foreign countries but order drugs when they arrive back in the United States. The patient must be cautious to insure that the drugs come from a major worldwide pharmaceutical manufacturing company. This is easy to check by researching the company's website before placing an order. The drugs are usually packaged in tamper-proof foil with better assurance of authenticity than drugs from a neighborhood pharmacy.
Prices for drugs on the international market can vary greatly, but most can be obtained for less than the co-pay on many insurance programs. One should place a large orders and combine different drugs on the same order. The best shipping method is EMS express because a tracking number is provided. People with a deadly disease or condition who depend on a drug for their life should consider a large quantity as insurance in case of a national disaster or to self medicate in cases of emergency or crisis. A supply of several antibiotics are the first step. Recommended antibiotics are Cephalexin (Keflex) 500mg, Bactrum DS, Ciprofloxacin (Cipro) 500mg, Tetracycline 500mg, Metronidazole (Flagyl) ER 500mg, Azithromycin (Zithromax) 500mg, and the anti-fungal drug Fluconazole (Diflucan) 200mg.
People with the experience and training in self-administering drugs can purchase drugs online without a prescription for personal use on the following International websites. The drugs must be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States. The FDA does not prevent importation when the drugs do not appear to present a serious risk. Previous orders placed with these pharmacies have been completely satisfactory.

Example Drug: Eplerenone blocks the actions of the hormone aldosterone in the body. Aldosterone is important for the regulation of blood pressure. Eplerenone is used to treat congestive heart failure after a heart attack. Eplerenone is also used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Eplerenone helps people who are sensitive to table salt (sodium) where dietary salt causes an increase in blood pressure. Many people with hypertension have this condition. Unfortunately, very few cardiologist neither address this problem in patients nor prescribe eplerenone as the solution even though it is very effective with no side effects. The drug is discussed in my book, Reversing Heart Disease and Preventing Diabetes.
Human 2016 Medicare Plan - Eplerenone is a "Tier 4" drug whereby Humana does not pay anything. The patient must bare the entire expense at the cost of $215 per month for one 50mg tablet per day.
LeeHPL Ventures - Eplerenone cost is $0.50 per tablet or $15 per month. Shipping add about $5.00 per month for a total cost of only $20 per month. This is based on a minimum order of 200 tablets.
Are Internet Drugs Safe? The manufacturer of a drug that can be purchased over the Internet should be reviewed to insure the quality of the company. Search for the manufacturer's website before placing the order. The drugs received should be packaged in special bubble wrap packages with the manufacturer's name, drug name, and dosage clearly printed. The complexity of the package and the printing indicates authenticity. Receiving tablets or capsules that are packaged loose in a plain bottle or simple box is totally unacceptable. Some of the suppliers above ship high-quality generic and name brand drugs from multibillion dollar international pharmaceutical companies such as Ranbaxy Laboratories (India), GlaxoKlineSmith (United Kingdom), CIPLA, Limited (India), Sun Pharmaceuticals Industries, LTD. (India), Surya Pharma (India), Unichem Laboratories Limited (India), Mega Fine Pharma (India), Ind-Swift Limited (India), Dr. Reddy's Pharmaceutical Company (worldwide), and Stada Arzneimittel AG (Germany). Avoid all drugs made in China.
Are Prescription Drugs Bad for Us? Most people have become extremely resistant to taking prescription drugs until they are faced with the choice between taking a drug or certain death. Most doctors hesitate to prescribe antibiotics based on the false logic that drugs create drug-resistant bacteria. The doctors would rather sacrifice the patient for what they feel is the higher good of society. Another example is the hesitancy of most doctors to prescribe an antibiotic when the patient is suspected of having common food poisoning. The physicians use the false logic that the patient's immune system is sufficient to make him better in a few days. The doctor may also fail to test for the pathogen which could later be found to be deadly. A common e-Coli bacterial infection can cause permanent liver damage and death. Food poisoning causes 4,000 deaths in the United States every year.
Some prescription drugs have been found to cause death, and many have been pulled off the market by the US-FDA. Other drugs have serious negative side effects, but the bad drugs should not be used as a blanket to label all drugs as unacceptable. Many drugs are awesome. As an example, I ate some raw green pepper for lunch one day that was contaminated with a pathogenic bacteria, and resulted in typical food poisoning symptoms. I immediately took one 500 mg Cipro tablet. Some doctors avoid prescribing Cipro because of negative side effects; however, the food poisoning symptoms soon dissipated, and I ate a full prime rib dinner without any recurrence of the symptoms. Placing a blanket rejection label on all prescription drugs can be dangerously unhealthy.
Are Generic Prescription Drugs Safe? Generic drugs purchased from your local drugstore may not be as safe as Internet drugs even though you purchased them with a doctor's prescription. In some cases you may not know the origin of manufacture. The drugs are handled in bulk rather than safety bubble wrap. They may have come from China where impurities in food, supplements, and drugs are common. They could contain heavy metals, carcinogens or toxic trace chemicals. Don't assume you are getting the best quality drugs simply because you purchased them with a doctor's prescription from your local pharmacy on your health insurance.
