Tom Brady, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant: celebrity health treatments are blasting the boundaries of mainstream medicine
By Jon Rappoport
Mainstream doctors and sports teams’ medical staffs aren’t happy.
Their sacred words from on high are being ignored by their patients. In case you missed the memo, doctors don’t like to be contradicted and disobeyed. Their god-like status must not be jeopardized.
Tom Brady is a headliner. He and unknown numbers of his Patriots teammates have gone outside the boundaries for help—to independent trainer/nutritionist Alex Guerrero. This move obviously raised conflicts with the Patriots’ medical staff. Coach Bill Belichick eventually restricted players’ access to Guerrero—the trainer could no longer fly with the team, stand on the sidelines during games, or treat players inside the New England stadium. Belichick’s dictum was apparently a mere gesture of good will to team doctors, because Guerrero has an office within walking distance of the stadium, where players visit.
As for Brady, he continues to play football at a high level, at age 40, and has developed, with Guerrero, his TB12 system for natural health and peak performance. Grossly out-of-shape sports writers tend to be irked by Brady’s longevity in the game. They enjoy predicting he’ll suddenly fall apart.
Kobe Bryant, now retired from the NBA, managed to overcome a serious arthritic knee injury near the end of his career—not through treatments administered or recommended by LA Lakers doctors. Kobe went to Germany.
Grantland reports: “[Kobe opted for] the Regenokine approach, a patented method developed by Dr. Peter Wehling, a spinal surgeon in Düsseldorf, Germany. The procedure begins with the removal of a small cup of blood from a patient, which is then incubated at a slightly elevated temperature. (The goal is to give the blood a fever.) The liquid is then spun in a centrifuge until it’s separated into its constituent parts…The relevant fluid is the middle yellowish layer — it looks like viscous urine — which is dense with agents that, at least in theory, can accelerate the natural healing mechanisms of the body. ‘The inflammatory response is normally part of the recovery process,’ says Chris Renna, one of the only American doctors administering Regenokine. ‘But sometimes the body can’t turn the inflammation off, and that’s when you get chronic pain and arthritic degeneration. The goal of Regenokine is to stop that response so your body can begin getting better’.”
“Kobe is clearly a believer in Regenokine and biologic medicine…He even recommended the treatment to Alex Rodriguez, which led the baseball star to undergo the same treatment on his knee late last year. Bryant hasn’t commented publicly on the treatment, but A-Rod has described the feelings of his friend. Bryant ‘was really adamant about how great the procedure was for him,’ Rodriguez told reporters. ‘I know that he was hurting before, almost even thinking about retirement, that’s how much pain he was under. And then he said after he went to Germany he felt like a 27-year-old again…’”
Again, the mainstream doctors on the Lakers staff, and almost all US physicians, were left in the dust. Something outside their purview and control worked. The FDA has not approved this German treatment in America.
LeBron James (33 years old, playing in his 15th season in the NBA) spends more than a million dollars a year to stay in peak shape. His home layout includes a hyperbaric oxygen chamber and a cryochamber, which is reputed to aid tissue healing by exposing the body to low temperatures. James also employs a former Navy Seal as a “biomechanist.” No one challenges James’ unorthodox methods, which obviously go beyond what his team doctors would advocate. He’s a sports untouchable.
On lower levels of sport fame and excellence, large number of athletes are opting for experimental, unapproved protocols of healing. They aren’t listening to their mainstream doctors.
Glenn Fry, of the Eagles, listened to his doctors. His death led to his wife, Cindy, filing a lawsuit against Mt. Sinai Hospital and Dr. Steven Itzkowitz.
Frey’s longtime manager, Irving Azoff told The Wrap: “The death of Eagles cofounder Glenn Frey…at age 67 can be blamed in part on the medications he was taking.”
The Wrap: “Frey died from rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and pneumonia, according to the band’s website. Azoff said the latter two were caused by medications that he was taking for the inflammatory disorder [arthritis].”
“’The colitis and pneumonia were side effects from all the meds,’ he told TheWrap. ‘He died from complications of ulcer and colitis after being treated with drugs for his rheumatoid arthritis which he had for over 15 years’.”
“Azoff declined to specify the drug in question, saying that he had been counseled by an attorney not to do so.”
“Glenn Frey initially went in [to the hospital] to get medication to treat his rheumatoid arthritis. According to Eagles manager Irving Azoff, this medication caused him to develop acute ulcerative colitis and a weakened immune system, which then led to pneumonia.”
“After gastrointestinal surgery, he was placed in a medically induced coma [!] and subsequently died of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia on January 18, 2016.”
“While patients have a right to participate in their own treatment, Mrs. Frey’s complaint claims that Dr. Itzkowitz and Mount Sinai Hospital failed to advise the Grammy Award-winning musician and his wife of the risks, purposes and advantages of doing or not doing certain procedures, the health risks associated with proceeding or not proceeding, and the risks and advantages of available alternative procedures.”
“Cindy Frey claims that the negligence and carelessness of Dr. Itzkowitz and Mount Sinai Hospital rendered her husband ‘sick, sore, lame and disabled, suffering injuries, pain, and mental anguish, was compelled to seek medical care and attention, incurred expenses thereof, and was permanently injured and disabled until the time of his death’.”
The lawsuit is ongoing.
—What will happen when a world-famous sports figure decides to reject a yearly flu shot and speaks out about it? Or announces his pregnant wife won’t take the vaccine because it contains mercury, a neurotoxin that could damage her baby for life?
Celebs—no matter what you think of them—are key figures in influencing the public. This is one reason Pharma enlists their aid and pays them well for fronting for medical drugs. Celebs must also be kept in line. The more of them who stray from official medical protocols, the more the public wakes up and realizes they are being corralled inside walls of “respectable” treatments.
Yes, some alternative treatments are expensive, and no, insurance companies don’t cover them—but this only fires the public’s demand to be let into the “inner circle,” where successful non-approved methods are being deployed, and, in some cases, health is being restored. Without dangerous drugs.
When Tom Brady promotes his system of natural health, it’s especially irking and troublesome to mainstream medical honchos, because Brady’ performance on the football field lends credence to his claims…
Ditto for Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and others.
Brady, especially, has a major target on his back, and it isn’t painted by opposition players who want to rush him and throw him to the ground. Mainstream medical top guns want him to fade into obscurity. Quickly.
Wikipedia: “Brady, alongside Boston Private and Robert Paul Properties, announced the formation of the TB12 Foundation. The purpose of the nonprofit foundation is to provide free post-injury rehabilitation care and training to underprivileged, young athletes. In March 2017, Brady moved beyond his snack line and partnered with meal-kit startup Purple Carrot to offer his own line of TB12 Performance Meals. The meals utilize whole foods and focus on providing nutrients for workout recovery. On September 19, 2017, Simon & Schuster published Brady’s first book, The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance. Within 48 hours, it had become a number one best-seller on Amazon.com. The book also reached #1 on the New York Times’ weekly Best Sellers list…”
The walls of ignorance and arbitrary authority are coming down.
