LEVER 5: What Drugs You Take
In modern day medicine, every age group, from children to seniors are at risk for being diagnosed with conditions they may not actually have and prescribed medications they probably do not need. Most physicians follow standards of care that are designed largely by pharmaceutical companies to treat the symptoms of their disease, but rarely if ever address the underling cause.
If you watch any television at all in the U.S., you have seen the advertisements for medications along with a long laundry list of potential and often fatal side effects from many pharmaceutical drugs. Often times these side effects are more dangerous than the original condition being treated.
Vioxx, an anti-inflammatory medication used to treat musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritis was eventually pulled from market after studies demonstrated that those taking it experienced a much higher risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attack and even death. Unfortunately by the time Vioxx was withdrawn from the market, an estimated 60,000 plus Americans had died from the drug.
Many patients are required to undergo monthly blood test to monitor organ function in order to stop medication damage if a problem is detected. In few cases the use of medications are warranted and may help improve your situation but they must be used cautiously and judiciously. It is far better to address the underlying physical cause of the condition to alleviate the issue than it is to mask the problem by subduing the symptoms.
Many causes of disease can be linked to an unhealthy lifestyle and food choices. We have talked about the correlations between food, diet, toxins, air quality, water quality, EMF’s and Blue Light toxicity and poor health & disease. As a reminder, here is a list of some of the most dangerous foods and lifestyle habits that correlate to most diseases affecting our society.
- Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup, and other high sugary foods.
- Refined and process carbohydrates.
- Consumptions of excessive carbohydrates.
- Consumption of processed and refined oils.
- Poor ration of Omega 6 Fatty Acids to Omega 3 Fatty Acids.
- Too much protein.
- Eating Non Organic Foods
- Pesticide and Herbicide Use on Food Supply (Glyphosate)
- Exposure to heavy metals in Water, Food and Air.
- Exposure to Zeno Estrogens (Plastics).
- Exposure to high amounts of EMF’s
- Blue Light Toxicity.
- Not enough Sunlight.
- Lack of exposure to nature.
- Geo Engineering Exposure.
- Poor Water Quality.
This is not an exhaustive list, however, its the most important items causing disease.
My recommendation is to find a physician that looks at alternatives to correcting the cause of disease rather than treat the symptom. Once you start down the road of medications, it becomes a slippery slope and before long, one medication leads to the use of half a dozen or more. There is a plethora amount of information and research available to you today. Take the leap of faith and fix yourself by changing your diet, changing your lifestyle habits and learning to detox from todays poisonous society,
