A Pill for Every ILL!

A Pill for Every ILL!The old adage; "He who markets best wins!", has never been demonstrated better than with the success of Big Pharma pitching and selling a philosophy of health and healing that supposedly comes from outside in, in the form of a manufactured pill, shot or drug. Imagine being sold a pill which often has side effects identical to what that pill is prescribed for, such as suicidal tendencies from antidepressants, or a pill that is designed to kill pain but often kills you in the process, such as from opioid painkillers? That's some good marketing or brainwashing, either one, it's an astounding feat!
Consider today's (June 20, 2013 CBS News) headline: 70% of Americans are taking at least one prescription drug, 50% take at least two prescription drugs and 20% were found to be on five or more prescription drug! Wow, America's real drug problem is not from illegal, but from legal drugs, heavily pushed by a legal drug cartel made up of the some of the world's most successful fortune 500 companies, often collectively referred to as Big Pharma.
After chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes, the second most common prescribed drug was antidepressants with nearly one in four women ages 50-64 found to be taking an antidepressant. That is 13% of the overall U.S. population on antidepressants. Have we become a nation that's mentally ill? Expenditures on prescribed drugs in the U.S. have reached an astronomical $250 Billion in 2009, accounting for 12% of America's total "Health Care" expenditures. According to the CDC in Atlanta, the percentage of people taking at least one prescription drug in the past month increased nearly 50% between 2007 and 2010.
To avoid you and your family becoming one of these statistics, you must become informed with correct knowledge and information, starting with true healing principles. Drugs do not heal only life heals. Drugs can definitely stimulate and inhibit physiology keeping you from dying or suffering pain but not healing. Not convinced, try applying some medications to a cadaver in the anatomy lab and see what happens. You must have life in your body to heal, from the inside-out and not from the outside-in. Eighty percent of all disease is considered lifestyle induced or in other words, we do it to ourselves. The lifestyle one chooses often determines our future health path. The human body is designed to be well; it's given an innate healing ability; it's always striving for homeostasis or balance; and it's not designed to be chronically sick and die-out prematurely. The laws of health and healing are designed to be obeyed and not broken. The five laws of nutrition, exercise, rest, mental thought, and a free flowing nervous system will determine your future quality and quantity of health. Violate or neglect any of these laws, knowingly or unknowingly, and you will have negative consequences. Likewise, following these laws will ensure your positive health potential for a lifetime.
Don't be discouraged if you find yourself in a health crisis, it's never too late to change the forecast and start healing by actively working on these health laws. Be encouraged, your body is designed to heal, no matter what age, symptom or disease you may have, when given the right opportunity. My job is to direct and provide that right opportunity for you to once again rise up, heal and be drug-free to pursue your God-given health potential once again!
