Episode 22:27 Side-Effects May Include…
Most people know that EVERY drug carries with it the potential for negative side effects.
Unfortunately, what most people DON’T know is that severe illness and/or death is oftentimes one of these side effects.
In fact, more Americans die each year from pharmaceutical drugs than from ANY other condition other than heart disease and cancer.
Sad, but true.
What’s even sadder is that many conditions can be treated WITHOUT pharmaceutical drugs and, therefore, WITHOUT the corresponding side effects.
It’s called Holistic Medicine and it is an approach that focuses on using NATURAL remedies to restore a person’s health.
Unfortunately, most medical doctors, and the medical profession as a whole, ignore all things “natural’ and limit their treatment options to “a pill for every ill.”
WHY they do this is a subject for another time.
For now, just know that the use of pharmaceutical drugs is VERY profitable which is why you see these pills advertised on TV commercials, magazines… and all across the internet.
You also see, at the end of these advertisements, a warning stating “side effects may include…”
Listening to the list of side effects is scary as they are oftentimes WORSE than the actual condition they are supposed to be treating!
On this episode we talk about the use, and misuse, of pharmaceutical drugs with an emphasis on how harmful many of them can be… even when used properly.
We also discuss one particular drug that is marketed specifically as a treatment for the side effects of other drugs.
(Yes, there is a drug that is promoted as a treatment for the side effects of other drugs!)
Be sure to give this episode a good listen.
