Statins are gateway drugs for Big Pharma: Take one and you’ll need four or five more prescriptions for the side effects

image_statinsOne out of every three American adults take statins, and if you think that sounds like good news for statin manufacturers, you’re missing the bigger picture. All of Big Pharma benefits when people take statins. In fact, statins can really be thought of as gateway drugs. After all, they have so many side effects that you will likely end up taking several other medications after you start statins just to deal with them.

What can happen to you if you take these dangerous drugs? They suppress your body’s immune system, rendering it less able to fight off infections. They also inhibit production of coenzyme Q10, which helps to regulate your immune and nervous system and maintain a healthy heart and blood pressure. There’s also a higher risk of neurological diseases when you take statins, with many patients reporting forgetfulness, confusion and memory loss. But don’t worry – whatever happens to you, Big Pharma has a solution for that, too!

Statins also increase your risk of diabetes, so much so that the FDA has required that a warning label be placed on the package informing people of the link between statins, higher blood glucose levels and diabetes. The risk is especially heightened if you are an older woman. An Australian study found that elderly women who took high doses of statins had a 50 percent higher risk of developing diabetes. This could mean you’ll end up on diabetes medication for the rest of your life.

And for what benefit are you placing yourself at so much risk? According to research published in BMJ, taking statins over the course of two to five years adds just 3.2 days to a patient’s lifespan on average – if the side effects don’t kill them first. Yes, they’ve been approved by the FDA, but how many times has the FDA had to pull drugs after initially approving them as their dangers became too obvious to ignore?

Statin alternatives

If all this make you want to keep your distance from statins, you will be pleased to know there are some great alternatives. Dr. Jack Wolfson, a Phoenix-area holistic cardiologist, believes that a wellness model needs to be followed rather than a sickness one.

In an interview with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, he pointed out that cardiologists sometimes fall into the easy routine of blindly prescribing statins as Big Pharma tells them to and collecting a paycheck. After all, they’ve got medical school loans to pay off.

Dr. Wolfson asks why people would want to choose statins, which can reduce the risks associated with high cholesterol slightly yet put them at risk of many other problems, when they could take safe actions that bring their risks down to zero? He said that nobody says they feel better when they take statins and blood pressure medications. In contrast, those who turn to evidence-based supplements often report feeling great, losing weight, and having more energy.

Some of the alternatives he mentioned in the interview include beetroot powder, magnesium, and Omega 3. He says that we can make such a big difference in our health through food., and he also points out how powerful the sun can be in keeping us healthy. He also suggests that people get more physical activity, such as walking or gardening.

When your health is less than optimum, Dr. Wolfson says, your body is deficient in nutrients, not pharmaceuticals. Drugs might be good for emergencies, but when it comes to prevention, you can’t beat a healthy, well-rounded and nutritious diet, physical activity, and good old-fashioned sunshine. What do you have to lose by trying it?

WHAT ‘IF’ YOU HAVE A CONDITION THAT IS GETTING WORSE AND SEEMS HOPELESS? COULD IT BE IATROGENIC (DOCTOR CAUSED)?

What if… just what if… you were given a wrong diagnosis? Did you know that in a shocking study, it was found to be that 88% of the time, second opinions rarely agree with your first diagnosis?  Were you also aware of the fact that If you are a female, statistics reveal that you your chances of being misdiagnosed are greater than a male. What if you even got several 2nd opinions that agreed or disagreed with your original diagnosis? What if the meds you were given have side effects that have been attributed to your diagnosis, yet were actually caused by the medications or treatment you were given? What if those side effects caused even more problems that were also blamed on that diagnosis and now you are taking more medications and going through more tests… perhaps even getting treatments that don’t seem to be making you any better? You’re getting worse and getting worse fast. Now, you have that original and potentially wrong diagnosis plus have been given an iatrogenic (doctor caused) disorder by ‘polypharamacy’. Polypharmacy means a disorder caused by too many drugs negatively interacting by causing too many additional conditions that were never there in the first place. Perhaps all of this is upsetting to you and you have revealed that upset to your doctor.  Chances are that your doctor will now treat you for secondary depression, anxiety, insomnia or even psychosis, from your ‘reaction’ to all that is supposedly wrong with you.  Now what? M

Have you ever considered that, maybe, just maybe, nothing is wrong with you at all and that whatever condition you may have had would have  possibly run it’s course on it’s own or could have been easily treated with a natural alternative method?  Could you have possibly been sucked into the vortex of iatrogenic harm (harm by doctors)? Have you been misdiagnosed and now this misdiagnosis has possibly snowballed you into hell where there are no answers… nothing makes sense even to your doctors… and you are now being treated only symptomatically with drugs that are making you worse?  Could you now be suffering from something ‘doctor caused’ – aka an Iatrogenic disorder?

When you are sick, it is not always easy to find the right path forward. When your regular health care provider recommends surgery or a major treatment, it might be a good idea to get a second opinion after the Mayo Clinic reported that your doctor is wrong 88 percent of the time.

Even though the path to becoming a physician is long, with four years of college to get a bachelor’s degree, another four years of medical school, and three to seven more years of residency and fellowship training, experienced and well-trained doctors may still not get your diagnosis right. A second opinion may give you not only peace of mind, but also a second chance at survival.

When it comes to your health, two brains work better than one

The Mayo Clinic researchers examined 286 patient records of individuals who had decided to consult the Mayo Clinic’s General Internal Medicine Division in Rochester for a second opinion between 2009 and 2010. The group consisted of patients referred by nurse practitioners and physician assistants, along with an equal number of randomly selected physician referrals.

To determine the extent of diagnostic errors, the team compared the referring diagnosis to the final diagnosis. The researchers found that only 12 percent of patients received a correct first diagnosis, while nearly nine out of ten people (or 88 percent) who go for a second opinion, walk away with a refined or entirely new diagnosis from what they were first told. In 21 percent of all analyzed cases, the diagnosis was completely different than the first one, while 66 percent of patients walked away with a redefined diagnosis.

“Effective and efficient treatment depends on the right diagnosis. Knowing that more than 1 out of every 5 referral patients may be completely [and] incorrectly diagnosed is troubling — not only because of the safety risks for these patients prior to correct diagnosis, but also because of the patients we assume are not being referred at all,” said lead researcher James Naessens, Sc.D., a health care policy researcher at Mayo Clinic, in a statement.

Medical errors, now the leading cause of death in the US

According to a controversial study from Johns Hopkins University, medical errors, including misdiagnosis, are the leading cause of death in American hospitals. ProPublica, however, noted that this number might be higher since doctors don’t list medical errors on the death certificate, so the actual number of fatalities might be inaccurate.

With thousands of diseases, some with similar symptoms, it is not always easy to get a straightforward diagnosis from the first doctor’s visit, hence why a second opinion is so crucial to one’s health and survival. If we can learn anything from the Mayo Clinic’s study, then it is the fact that medical practices and diagnosis should be a more collaborative process. Doctors and other health care providers should work more closely together to make sure patients get the right diagnosis and proper treatment as fast as possible. 

Despite the pervasiveness of diagnostic errors, which could be fatal, little attention has been given to improving the system of referrals. Dr. Naessens stated that referrals to advanced specialty care for undifferentiated problems are an essential component of patient care. While getting a second opinion might push the diagnostic costs up, a misdiagnosis could lead to delays in treatments and complications, which may result in the death of a patient.

Dr. Naessens, however, is pleased to see that the National Academy of Medicine is taking steps to improve diagnostic processes and error reduction. They called for dedicated federal funding and plan to further investigate the occurrence of diagnostic mistakes and find new ways to improve the process.

America has collapsed into a PHARMA STATE run by government-protected drug cartels

Much like a “narco state” that’s run by narco terrorists, America has now collapsed into a pharma state run by “legal” drug cartels protected by a hopelessly corrupt government.

The evidence is all around you: How the drug cartels control Congress, universities, medical schools, science journals and of course the entire fake news media (previously known as the “mainstream media”).

The pharmaceutical industry has more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than any other industry, including the weapons industry. Similarly, Big Pharma is routinely caught committing felony crimes involving price fixing or bribery “kickback” schemes such as the GlaxoSmithKline criminal bribery network that involved over 40,000 U.S. doctors.

IT’S OVER! America is now collapsing into a Pharma state from NaturalNews on Vimeo.

Big Pharma is a massive criminal racketeering enterprise with a devastating cost in human lives, suffering and financial bankruptcy. If the parasitic drug cartels are not stopped, they will destroy America by obliterating its financial solvency, human health and even human freedom.

Already, the drug cartels are pushing for mandatory vaccination laws — a form of medical tyranny and violence — that allow the government to forcibly inject you (essentially at gunpoint) with anything the drug companies demand, no matter how dangerous. This includes, by the way, human fetal tissue, DNA from diseased animals, toxic heavy metals, brain-damaging chemicals and other ingredients confirmed by the CDC as being used in vaccines. (See The Truth About Vaccines documentary series for more details.)

No meaningful medical reform can ever take place under the current pharma regime

As a pharma state, America cannot extricate itself from the corruption and malfeasance of the pharmaceutical industry, which is exactly why no meaningful Obamacare repeal or reform can ever succeed: There’s too much money at stake for the drug cartels that wield monopoly influence in Washington.

Both the FDA and CDC have become “captive” agencies that serve primarily to protect the monopoly interests of the pharmaceutical giants, and even the FTC obeys Big Pharma by seeking out and destroying producers of natural products that might compete with Big Pharma’s high-profit drugs.

In the same way that Colombia existed as a narco state, America is now a pharma state, meaning that pharmaceutical interests now control the government, the media, the universities and even the “science” (which means it isn’t really science at all).

Like a dangerous parasite, this pharmaceutical infestation of nearly every institution in the nation will, of course, bankrupt and destroy America’s financial solvency, leading to a collapse and “reboot.” It is vital that when the reboot comes, Americans reject the drug cartels that destroyed our nation, our health, our financial solvency and even our minds in many cases (with mind-altering chemical medications).
