Americans are among the unhealthiest people on earth and this situation continues to get even worse. Learn to get healthy the nutritional way.
The reason is clear why this unfortunate situation continues to be so frightening. You cannot get well by taking prescription drugs to resolve your ailment. I don’t understand why the general public is so gullible to think this is the way to wellness.
If you have a persistent ailment that has been going on for months or even years for some people, why wouldn’t you want to get it solved as quickly as possible? People keep going to the same doctor, month after month, year after year and yet they never get totally well. The doctor keeps subscribing useless prescription drugs and yet people still believe that is going to help them get well.
However here’s some good news. According to the Star-Ledger online newspaper in New Jersey, growth in prescription drug sales in 2007 began to drop. It was lowest since 1961 but it was still $286.5 billion.
This was the weakest growth in more than four decades. The industry has entered a new era, it’s characterized by more modest growth due to the continuing impact of new generic products, fewer and more narrowly indicated medications and closer scrutiny of safety issues.
At the same time big selling, high profit drugs were coming off patent. New medicines represented just $ 441 billion of total sales in 2007, reflecting the slowest period for product launches in the past three decades.
Even though safety issues contributed to significantly lower than expected sales for products, it only accounted for approximately 10 percent of total prescription sales.
Here’s what is very disturbing to me. Look at this information
Heart Drugs
• Lipitor – tops the list at $8.4 billion in sales for high cholesterol
Brain Drugs
• Zoloft – tops the list at #3.1 billion for depression
Blood Drugs
• Epogen – tops the list at 3.0 billion for anemia
Stomach Drugs
• Nexium – tops the list at $4.4 billion for heartburn
Respiratory Drugs
• Advair – tops the list at #3.6 billion for asthma
Joints (aging related)
• Enbrel – tops the list at $2.7 billion for rheumatoid arthritis
The fastest growing drugs
Vytorin – tops the list at $917 billion for high cholesterol
Here’s the facts, ladies and gentlemen. The eventual need for these drugs may be avoided by changes in diet NOW. Here’s just a few of the many drugs, just mentioned.
Heart drugs – Most heart problems are caused by diet. Radically decrease your intake of fast food, which are loaded with saturated fat, hydrogenated vegetable oil, partially hydrogenated oil vegetable oil, and trans fatty acids, all of which lend to clog arteries.
Stop eating the crud – Get off your behind and start exercising – Don’t expect a pill to save you. The drug side effects are frequently worse than the original ailment.
Brain Drugs – In the past people had a normal range of emotions. Now, if you are sometimes happy, and sometimes sad, you have a “bipolar” disease that must be treated by a pharmaceutical drug. The real remedy is, achieve a positive outlook. Deal with your past, stop taking mind – bending drugs, strive for a positive attitude. Remove yourself from negative peo0ple who will bring you down. Once again, don’t expect a pill to save you.
Stomach drugs – I would guess that 95% of all stomach problems are related to what you eat. You know what I’m talking about. You know that when you eat certain foods, you get heartburn. Has it ever occurred to you that your body is talking to you? Have you ever considered the obvious? Don’t eat the offending food.
The pharmaceutical companies want you to ignore the message your body is sending you. They want you to just eat some of their chemicals so you won’t notice the discomfort and continue ignoring what you continue to put in your body. Don’t you think this is idiotic? Why would you seek a pill, so you could eat things that make you uncomfortable?
Joint Drugs – Many people have experienced great improvement for their joints by using chondroitin and glucosamine. The pharmaceutical companies will NEVER say anything good about these products. They cannot patent them, and squeeze you for money so they degrade them.
Look folks, medicine is a business, not a science. Become aware medicine is a business of treatment, not curing. Be realistic, if an ailment is cured, there is no reason for treatment. If there is no treatment, there is no way for pharmaceutical companies to make huge profits.
Take responsibility for your own health. Don’t be lazy, and relay on “medicine” to cure all your ills. If you are lazy and go to the doctor, you may be doing yourself more harm than good.
