Ohhhhh I feel a rant coming on. I just turned off my television. I can't tell you how much I hate pharmaceutical commercials. They must think we're all idiots.
Western medicine is broken. It is deadly, expensive, corrupt, inefficient, and riddled with greedy "special interest" which care more about the bottom line ($$$) than you or I. Have you really listened to pharmaceutical commercials on tv? Pay attention to the side effects and then ask yourself: Isn't there a better way?
I always ask myself who listens to the rundown of side effects on pharmaceutical commercials then runs to his/her doctor to ask for the drug. Yet as a respiratory therapist who knows many doctors I KNOW people DO THIS. It boggles the mind! WAKE UP PEOPLE!
Does our reliance on pharmaceuticals really make sense to you? Why have we forgotten God gave us ALL WE NEED to nourish our body? Do you realize the more we hear pharmaceutical commercials the more we get comfortable with side effects? How dangerous do you think that is? I think it's criminal to have pharmaceutical commercials on television.
Your body does not have a deficiency of any pharmaceutical. Drugs are poison. They rob your body of nutrients. Don't believe me? Take a look at the book, "Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion Handbook" published by Lexi-Comp, Inc. Yes pharmaceuticals have a place. They are indeed life-saving in acute situations. But they also rob your body of nutrients and in the case of most chronic illnesses do not offer a cure, but only cover up or suppress symptoms.
Remember the various drug retractions a few years ago (ie the Cox2 debacle)? These will only continue to occur. Why? Because the human body was not made to handle synthetic substances. Have you heard about the side effects of Viagra? (Google it!) You can't fool Mother Nature but we'll keep trying. We don't have disease because of a lack of toxic, synthetic chemical drugs in our body.
We have disease because vital cell function is impeded due to stress, toxins and a lack of nutrient components that only come from diet and supplementation. Disease, quite frankly, is your body crying out for what it isn't getting.
Nutrients! the modern "missing link" of wellness. We have to stop relying on pharmaceuticals for health. Drugs do not create health. Nutrients create health. Veggies and fruits of all colors. Antioxidants, vitamins, minerals! Life-enriching goodness from nature.
