Prescription drugs are the 4th leading cause of death in the world. If that’s not enough to make you shriek, I’m not sure what will.
The pharmaceutical industry is committing a silent holocaust around the globe. It works like this: People are sick because they aren’t getting proper nutritients. Then they are covering up their sickness with a doctor-prescribed pill. But this is causing some serious side effects, leading their doctors to prescribe more pills to conceal those side effects.
Rinse and repeat.
The following is a list of the 7 most dangerous and heavily promoted prescription drugs with some natural alternatives.
1) Prednisone or Cortisone
What’s the deal? Used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, asthma, allergies and many other conditions. Corticosteroids mimic the effects of hormones your body produces naturally in your adrenal glands, which sit on top of your kidneys. When prescribed in doses that exceed your body’s usual levels, corticosteroids suppress inflammation.
What are the side effects?
- High blood sugar, which can trigger or worsen diabetes
- Increased risk of infections
- Thinning bones (osteoporosis) and fractures
- Suppressed adrenal gland hormone production
- Thin skin, easy bruising and slower wound healing
Alternatives: Raw whole food diet.
