Doctors Die Differently From You and Me

Near-death experiencer Dannion Brinkley (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show) once said, "In the US, we TORTURE our old people to death." But doctors know this, which is why most of them eschew extreme treatments when they get serious diseases.

In the Wall Street Journal, Ken Murray writes: "What's unusual about them is not how much treatment they get compared with most Americans, but how little. They know exactly what is going to happen, they know the choices, and they generally have access to any sort of medical care that they could want. But they tend to go serenely and gently."

When reporter Joseph J. Gallo researched physicians' end-of-life decisions, he found that 64% of them had created an advanced directive laying out what steps should and should not be taken to save their lives should they become incapacitated. Only around 20% of non-physicians in the US have done this.

Are YOU on the "way out?" If that's the case, put the Dreamland Festival on your "bucket list." But even if you're slim and healthy, there's reason to hurry. We keep it small so we can keep it intimate and get a chance to talk with everyone, but what this means is that we sell out every year and have to turn people away.
