Has Pharmaceutical Propaganda Brainwashed You?
If you think that Traditional Chinese Medicine is quackery; then Big Pharma has done their job of brainwashing you into believing that drugs are the only answer to health problems.
Big Pharma has purchased congress.
They have more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than there are congressmen and senators combined.
They have ‘their people’ in the FDA
They write the medical books used in Universities.
So, it’s no wonder that your local doctor won’t prescribe you a natural remedy for your pain or ailment… it’s because doctors have been programmed to use their prescription pad!
A study published by Mayo Clinic revealed that 70% of Americans take at least one daily prescription medication. The same study showed that 20% of Americans are on five or more daily medications.1
These prescriptions cause side effects… and over a period of time, they cause serious health problems that require another daily drug. And another… and another.
This cycle is called: ‘prescription cascade’ (also known as ‘polypharmacy’) and it’s an epidemic that can take 10 years off the average life expectancy.
Retiree’s at most risk - Studies show that prescription cascade is responsible for accelerating the need for aged care… due to these common side-effects2:
- Decreased physical functioning
- Delirium and dementia
- Urinary incontinence
- Recurring falls
- Reduced ability to absorb vitamins and minerals
Hi I’m Emily J. Parker.
My mother was a victim of prescription cascade, and I was also travelling along the same path.
Side-effects from my medication would cause me to wake up every morning with a crashing headache and terrible nausea...
I'd lie in bed thinking, "how the heck am I going to make it through the day?"
“Is this what the rest of my life is going to be like now?”
I started to gain weight uncontrollably, and I was becoming more tired every day. I wanted to work out, but I was too exhausted from the medication.
One day I took a good look in the mirror. My eyes were yellow, bloodshot, and surrounded by dark rings.
"Life is going to pass me by if I keep living like this" I thought.
After three months of this torture, my body couldn't take it anymore.
Near death accident reveals healing force of nature
It was a Wednesday that altered my life forever.
I remember looking at my watch: it was 2.57pm… I was running late.
My prescription had made me feel nauseous and faint all day. And although every cell in my body told me to stay at home; I still had to go to school to pick up my daughter… and grab some pizza for dinner.
I was driving just three blocks from my house when I felt something start to go terribly wrong.
My vision blurred… sounds became distant… and I felt that something awful was happening.
I blacked out at the wheel. Like a bad dream, I woke up on a stretcher in an ambulance.
I was confused. My shoulder, chest, neck and back were pounding in agony.
My head was throbbing and in a painful fog. I could feel blood caked to my hair.
Long story short; my car had drifted left and ploughed head-first into a lady driving an SUV!
Luckily, there were no kids in the car, and her injuries were minor.
But I suffered severe whiplash, a fractured vertebra, two broken ribs, and my left collarbone was shattered.
All because of the side-effects of prescription pills...
... pills that were supposed to help me!
Just before being discharged from the hospital, my doctor asked me what would become a life-changing question.
"Would you like some medication for the pain?"
I begged; "Are there any natural alternatives?"
But the doctor kept sidestepping the question.
To shut me up, he told me my only option was painkillers.
I was astounded that he STILL wanted to shove pills down my throat; despite the irony that pills were the reason for my car crash in the first place!
So I said no... but I hadn't thought it through.
The pain was already unbearable, but I would have to tough it out and find another way.
