    • Synopsis
    • In Sick to Death! filmmaker Maggie Hadleigh-West exposes her own disturbing, yet determined, thirty-year struggle to regain her downward spiraling health. After seeing hundreds of doctors who either disregarded her symptoms, misdiagnosed or under-treated her, Maggie discovers that her life-long thyroid problem was a fully understood medical issue as early as 1914, yet it’s been obscured by systemic medical corruption, pharmaceutical greed and physician negligence, leaving more than 750 million people sick and suffering worldwide.

      Follow Maggie as she courageously uncovers the vast medical corruption and negligence that obscures medical practice – only to find yet another disturbing personal revelation. Sick to Death! is both a call-to-action and idiosyncratic film, which seeks to understand and change this disturbing medical reality.
