- This article explains the problems with free medical and health information.
Some people find our website and reach out to us for information. This article explains the options that are available through this website.
About Brightwork Research
The first thing to know about us is we are small. We are only a few people, and we have no corruption or alignment with any corrupt part of the medical establishment. All of our articles are about what is true not based upon some partnership or paid by pharma companies. And this is a real problem – people searching for health and medical information have become accustomed to it being free. However, the reason there is so much free medical information on the Internet is that it is mostly paid for by powerful entities. By trying to get things for free, people put themselves in a trusting position with entities that are not looking out for them or for public health generally directing people to ineffective treatments that are profit maximizing to those that fund them. WebMD, Healthline, The Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins — if they are a major site recommended by Google, they are part of the medical establishment. People do not seem to understand that The Mayo Clinic or Johns Hopkins, etc both have massive financial conflicts with pharma and other medical entities, but they are selling the exact items they are writing articles on. Naturally, they will provide this information for free — it promotes their own offerings.
That is what the expectations of free will get the public. It ends up with being directed to entities with a financial conflict.
As we are publishing what is true and are not selling out the interests of subscribers — there is no reason our information should be expected to be free.
Who Are the Major Providers of Medical Information?
If you look at significant information providers such as these sources.
- FDA, CDC, WHO, NIH, etc..
- RxList (which is a subsidiary of WebMD)
- Mayo Clinic
- Medical school websites
- Hospital websites
All of these sources provide pharmaceutical and medical equipment manufacturers with biased information related to health.
However, they have something else in common.
They all provide this information for free.
Isn’t that great? What a bunch of selfless entities completely dedicated to improving public health.
Or is it?
What they don’t tell you, and what almost no one outside of those that work at these companies knows is that they only provide free information to readers because it has already been paid for — and in many cases written by — pharmaceutical companies. WebMD and similar sites like them are the marketing front end for pharmaceutical companies and medical service providers. The information provided primarily serves the industry, not the consumer. As a test case, look at the information they provided about covid. Along with the establishment media, none of these entities provided accurate information during the covid pandemic or plandemic. They are restricted in providing true things but contradict their funders’ financial incentives.
That is because readers do not fund them. So they serve another master.
This same phenomenon is repeated across all industries. The information provider seeks other funding when the reader is not contributing to the information provider. readers think they are getting free information, but normally they do not question how this information is free or what WebMD, etc.. motivations are. WebMD is owned by a hedge fund called KKR. How can such a firm have any concern for public health or anything by maximizing the revenues of WebMD?
The answer is they can’t.
Which Medical Websites Answer Questions for Free?
There is no website in the medical space we have ever come into contact with that answers questions for free, and if they did, it would only be to direct the reader to use the product for one of the funders. That means if you are asking for websites to answer your questions for free, this is not a realistic expectation.
We provide excellent research and independent health information, which takes our time and resources to produce. We are not charging a 3x markup on chemotherapy drugs like hospitals do. Our only source of revenue is subscribers, and when subscribers hire us to perform custom research.
To go back into the pharma-controlled medical establishment Matrix, just go here to WebMD.
However, to leave the medical establishment Matrix, eee our site intro and home page to learn more.
These are the options we provide. All of these options help the medical situation of our customers. To be clear, we provide no treatment - we provide analysis.
Option #1: Subscribe to the Site
To subscribe to this website and access a steadily growing article database of non-status quo and highly accurate medical information.
Unless you don't read the articles, there is essentially no way for you not to benefit more than the subscription price. The subscription is not guided but is self-service -- that is, we don't provide support for the subscription price. Just like if you subscribe to consumer support -- there is no guidance. You can only access the site and help with logging in for this option. If you want more, we offer Option #2.
Just select the button below.
We also offer guided website support.
Option #2: Add On Guided Website Support
This offers answers to find things on the site. This is accomplished through the chat widget. You can ask us where things are, if articles on topics exist, etc... You have a maximum of 5 questions, and the service is purchased for a month, but it is nonrecurring. Once the month is up, you need to buy another month of Guided Website Support.
As with all the services, this is purchased separately from the subscription.
Option #3: Treatment Consulting Service
Some people want a completely independent analysis and feedback on their treatment. It should be noted that it is rare for patients to get anything but a second opinion -- from another MD with the same financial incentives.
This can range from shorter feedback on treatment without a supporting document to a 20 to 25-page personalized write-up and an interactive explanation where the patient is a case study that provides profiled treatment options.
All recommendations are based on a review and selection of the medical literature. There is no set fee for this service, and it depends upon the amount of effort involved. This is priced by the explanation of what the subscriber is interested in. Once you have agreed to our estimate, we will send you a link where you can pay.
How Long Does it Normally Take?
Normally all analysis is completed in less than a week.
What Would be the Price for My Issue?
To inquire about what this would cost for your question, contact us through the chat widget in the lower right-hand corner of the site.
Option #4: Cancer Center Analysis
Selecting a cancer center is stressful. In our experience, most people make a fast decision and go with one of the first cancer centers they visit. Cancer centers make assertive pitches that they can help cancer patients. Patients often "trust their doctor," however, what if that MD is recommending treatments that are low in effectiveness? Also, "which doctor."
We do not recommend a specific cancer center to you. We don't have a large enough database of cancer centers to do that yet. We analyze cancer centers that you are either currently using or ones you are considering using.
There is no set fee for this service, and it depends upon the amount of effort involved. This is priced by the explanation of what the subscriber is interested in. Once you have agreed to our estimate, we will send you a link where you can pay. We can get started quickly on your question.
