America: Home of the Drugged & Deceived? Part 4: Pharmaceutical Industry

It’s no secret that pharmaceutical drugs carry many dangerous side effects, especially now that drug companies are required to list them in their advertising.

In fact the side effects are often more severe than the ailment the drug is intended to treat. And when patients are forced to take multiple medications to treat multiple side effects, expensive and dangerous chemical cocktails can result.

Unfortunately, most people take whatever drugs their doctors prescribe them with little questioning, and doctors are inundated and even bribed to push new drugs all of the time, which is why they have been called “legal drug dealers.” In fact, many medical schools are now sponsored by pharmaceutical drug companies, and feature a mere two hours of nutritional training total.

Pharmaceutical drug statistics

  • Prescription drug abuse is the nation’s leading cause of death, contributing to nearly 40,000 deaths annually
  • Prescription drug addictions are most common with painkillers, depressants, and stimulants
  • Enough painkillers were prescribed in 2010 to medicate each American adult every four hours for one month
  • Seven of the top ten drugs used by kids in twelfth grade were prescription drugs
  • About 7 million Americans abuse prescription drugs: 2 1/2 times more than all those using cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens and inhalants
  • The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that close to 20% of people over the age of 12 in the U.S. have used prescription drugs for non-medical purposes

Pharmaceutical drugs deplete minerals

Many people do not realize that their prescription drugs actually deplete minerals in the body. This is because all prescription drugs have an acidifying effect which your body corrects by pulling alkaline minerals to neutralize the acids.

Here is a list of some of the common drugs and what they deplete, as reported by Natural News:

  • Anti-inflammatory drugs: Calcium, potassium, zinc, iron, Vitamins B6, C,  D, K, folic acid, chromium, glutathione, Vitamins B6, C, D, and K
  • NSAIDs:  Folic acid, melatonin
  • Aspirin/Salicylates: Vitamins C, K, B5, folic acid,  calcium, iron and sodium
  • Corticosteroids: Vitamins A, C, D, B6, B12,  folic acid, calcium, magnesium, potassium, selenium and zinc
  • Cochicine (used for gout): Vitamin B12, calcium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus,  Beta-carotene
  • Statins (Lipitor, Zocor, Crestor, etc.): Coenzyme Q10
  • ACE Inhibitors for hypertension (Lisinopril, etc.): Zinc

Pharmaceutical drugs create toxicity in the body

Pharmaceutical drugs are loaded with chemicals and artificial and toxic ingredients, but considered “safe” in small doses. However, we all know that an overdose can result in death, and that many of them are habit-forming and highly addictive.

If you are taking a prescription or illegal drug, especially over a long period of time, that drug is bound to build up in your system, creating an acidic environment that is prone to disease.

Our bodies are designed to thrive with an alkaline internal environment, and the two causes of disease are toxicity and deficiency. So by taking toxic drugs which deplete the body of its natural alkaline minerals, we are setting ourselves up for disease and other ailments, perhaps even the every issues we are attempting to treat with the drug.

Try homeopathic remedies instead of pharmaceutical drugs

The FDA states that only a DRUG can “treat, prevent, or cure” a disease, despite the fact that homeopathic remedies have existed eons longer than anything the drug companies cooked up in a lab. This illustrates that the pharmaceutical industry has a hold on our government as well. They either have, are currently developing, or plan to develop a “pill for every ill.” Clearly, it is all financially-driven.

Ever notice how the majority of prescriptions don’t actually cure the disease? They are designed to cover up the problem, and only work if you continue taking (and thus paying for) the drug. Conventional doctors don’t recommend natural remedies because the pharmaceutical industry can’t patent or make money off of them, not because they don’t work.

Homeopathic remedies are almost always cheaper, safer, and better for your body than pharmaceutical drugs. You don’t need to be a hippy tree hugger to adopt them, and to turn away from prescription drugs.

The next time you have an ailment, try a quick internet search for a homeopathic solution. You will likely come away with several solutions that may work.

For example, many people don’t realize that dehydration is an underlying cause of many aches and pains, including headaches and backaches. The next time you have a headache, try reaching for a glass of water–preferably ionized alkaline water–instead of an acidifying pain killer.

By addressing the root of the problem instead of consuming drugs which merely cover up the problem, you are arming your body with what it needs to heal itself naturally.

America: Home of the Drugged & Deceived? Part 2: Cancer

Did you know that one in two men and one in three women are now predicted to contract cancer during their lifetime?

It’s a growing epidemic that interestingly enough did not begin to boom until after World War II when processed foods, additives, and pharmaceutical drugs became mainstream.

The Truth About Cancer

We all know that after decades of research, chemotherapy, radiation, and invasive surgery are still the go-to treatments recommended by conventional doctors. Yet, chemotherapy is only effective in 2% of cases, and both chemo and radiation actually poison and weaken the body, contributing to the disease!

Most of the time, even when doctors claim that they have removed all of the cancer cells via surgery, the cancer will appear in another area of the body, because surgery does not remove the root cause of the disease: over acidity in the body.

So why do doctors continue to poison, maim, and kill their patients year after year, when the odds of curing them are so severely stacked against them?

Money.

For every one person who has cancer, there are eight people making money off of them.

A natural cure for cancer exists, and has been known for decades. But there’s no real profit in it, so the cancer industry–yes it is an industry, led by the American Cancer Society–has done everything in their power to conceal this information so that they can continue to benefit on the conventional cancer “treatment” methods.

They have gone so far as to smear the allopaths as snake oil salesmen, prevent American doctors from recommending natural treatments, cause nothing but a drug to be legally allowed to claim to “treat, prevent or cure” a disease, tamper with studies to show false hope for conventional cancer treatments, and even assassinate people who have tried to expose the truth.

But I’m here to tell you the truth, and to arm you with the information that can prevent you from losing yet another friend or family member to cancer.

The Real Cause of Cancer

Cancer is not something that happens to you at random, nor is it truly inherited through genetics. Cancer is a lifestyle disease and a mutation of cells caused by toxicity and deficiency.

We live in an over toxic world and are exposed to more toxins in one day than our ancestors were in a lifetime. Because of this our bodies are constantly struggling to stay in pH balance. In fact, if our blood becomes too acidic we die, and our bodies will actually rob alkaline minerals from our bones, muscles and teeth just to regulate our pH.

The problem is that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is extremely acidic. When we aren’t consuming enough alkaline minerals to offset the acidity in our diet and lifestyles, we become both mineral deficient and over-toxic (over-acid).

This sets us up for all forms of disease including cancer.

Natural Cures for Cancer

Disease cannot thrive in an alkaline environment, so the key to preventing and even reversing cancer naturally is to detoxify and replenish your alkaline mineral supply daily. There are many ways to do this, and here are some suggestions to get started:

#1. Eat more alkaline foods

Alkaline foods tend to be the natural plant-based foods that you inherently know are good for you, while processed, pre-packaged, fast foods and junk foods are acidifying to the body. Start introducing more organic fruits and veggies, nuts and seeds into your diet and try to crowd out the bad with the good. Daily juicing and green smoothies are a great way to increase the amount of fruit and vegetable servings you consume, however stay away from the really sweet fruits. Ideally you will want to be eating 80% alkaline foods and only 20% acidic foods.

#2. Switch to alkaline ionized water

Dr. Keiichi Morishita M.D., author of The Hidden Truth of Cancer says, “Drinking water that has a high alkaline pH, because of its de-acidifying effect, will help in preventing cancer. In Asia, alkaline water is regularly served to patients, and is considered a regular part of treatment.” Proper hydration is extremely important in the body and a great way to flush out toxins. Aim to drink at least half your body weight in ounces of ionized alkaline water from an electric water ionizer daily.

#3. Reduce your exposure to household toxins

Living a green lifestyle is a great way to reduce the amount of toxins in your home. This includes switching your cleaning products and beauty and skin care products, most of which are loaded with toxic chemicals. Ionized acidic water from an electric water ionizer is an all-natural and antibacterial fluid that can replace many of these products including glass cleaner, floor cleaner, all-purpose spray, hand sanitizer, facial toner, mouthwash and much more.

#4. Filter your tap water

Tap water is loaded with cancer-causing chemicals like chlorine, chloramines and fluoride. Even if you aren’t drinking your tap water, a drinking water filter is necessary if you use tap water when cooking. Many of the chemicals in tap water are actually inhaled when you take a shower, flush the toilet, and use the dishwasher or washing machine, so a shower filter and/or whole house filter can also reduce the amount of toxins in your home.

#5. Try natural detoxification methods

There are many detoxification methods that have been proven to be effective against cancer including infra red saunas, coffee enemas, hydrotherapy, colon cleanses, natural clay baths, and fasting, so implementing one or several of these methods can clean out your system and speed your recovery process.
