Confessions of a former RX Rep
In a video by Gwen Olsen, a former pharmaceutical sales representative, the truth comes out that Big Pharma is not in the business to get people well. In truth, their role is to simply put “disease maintenance and symptoms management.” In other words, they are controlling your symptoms with drugs in order to maintain your health in a perpetual state of disease, in order to insure their prosperity.
I had suspicions that this was true for many years, and appreciate Ms. Olsen coming out and stating these facts for us. I had also heard, though cannot quote my source, that Big Pharma has a goal of getting every person, at least in the United States, addicted to 3 drugs per person. This is evident with many people who are prescribed one drug, then having side-effects due to taking one drug are prescribed another drug and so forth. Doctors are being trained to administer these drugs to the masses in this manner.
The main populous is being duped into believing that the doctor has their health and healing interest in mind, but that is not true either. Doctors really are not chemists and do not understand what is happening inside your body when you take this drug and another, nor their combined side-effects. But I am sure you hear about this in published ads on the television that the drug may help your Crohn’s disease, but may also give you some forms of cancer or heart disease.
I am sorry to say that insurance will even help the pharmaceutical companies stay in business by defraying the cost of drugs that are prescribed to maintain your illness, and will not help in any way to pay for vitamins or supplements that may help you actually heal from disease.
Never fear, there are ways that you can be proactive in your health, and it does not matter about Big Pharma, and may even help put them out of business. First, talk to a natural health professional, such as myself, a licensed Doctor of Naprapathy or a Naturopath. I know there have been changes in the laws recently, but there are several good nutritionists and resources to help you regain your health without your medical doctor’s approval.
Second, change doctors. There are a few doctors who are more educated about natural resources including supplements and diets that help heal nearly a dozen diseases without the use of drugs or surgery.
Third, do your own research. You will not have the same resources that a doctor may have, but some resources are open to the public. For instance, you are welcome to go to the nearest medical school library and peruse the many medical journals and stacks that contain current and past research and information. You may not be able to check out any of the books or journals, but you can read them at your leisure, make copies of necessary information, and arm yourself with good information. Never rely on hearsay, and never just take the word of your doctor.
Finally, change your lifestyle. This is the one key to a healthy body, mind and spirit. Food is medicine. Exercise is medicine. Together they will help you regain your life, and yes you can avoid taking any drugs or undergoing unnecessary surgeries.
I am very disappointed in Obama Care. I had thought that there would be a provision to include paying for necessary supplements, vitamins and protein powders at least, and to include those that every individual is free to purchase at a local health food store, as well as those recommended to them by either a doctor or natural health practitioner. That is unfortunately not the case. We are being forced to purchase insurance, and Big Pharma will continue to thrive, while the citizens in the United States are subject to being guinea pigs to all sorts of research.
Well, be your own laboratory, and find out what makes your body healthy. Noone can stop you from experimenting on yourself. This has been my motto since I began my journey into herbalism, aromatherapy, and nutrition, some 33 years ago. I will try something on myself, before I try it on others. I do not practice medicine on others; I use empirical data that has been practiced by natural health professionals long before the Western allopathic physician came on the scene.
I have a few examples of success stories where patients were able to reduce and eventually remove their dependency on drugs that were prescribed by their primary care physician. I personally view each of us as our own primary care physician and encourage everyone to begin listening to their own body, and quite putting doctors on fragile pedestals. One such story involved a woman in her 70s who was a patient of mine during my internship. She was stooped over, on several medications for heart pressure, including potassium pills and anti-hallucinogenics due to the side effects of the heart medication. One day she called me to say she was having pain on her right side. She had called her PCP and was told she would need to have her gall bladder removed in one week, and to discontinue taking all medication.
I was shocked at this. He had not given her any tests; no blood tests or ultrasounds were performed. He had blatantly decided to use her as a guinea pig, remove her gall bladder, and who gives a damn about the woman’s health after that. I could only imagine he was thinking of the money he would make by cutting into her. I appreciated that he gave her the proper command to stop taking the pharmaceutical drugs, making my job a lot easier. I asked her to come in and let me examine her. Her symptoms were simply a pain on her right side, which does indeed indicate a problem with the gall bladder, but her doctors blatant disregard of scientific protocol was paramount to malpractice.
I suggested that she begin a three-day gallbladder flush. It is a simple procedure and could not hurt. I instructed her to purchase apples, and apple juice, as well as olive oil. The Gall Bladder Flush involves eating apples throughout the day, along with water, and to avoid caffeine or other foods. Then in the evening take 1/4 cup of olive oil in 1/4 cup of apple juice before bed. The body enjoys the apples and they dissolve any stones that may have formed. The olive oil lubricates the valves to allow passage of the smaller stones and works in about three days. She began her flush right away, but thinking she would be undergoing surgery had started making meals for herself that she would freeze and have for later. However, by the third day she felt a small pang as if a gas pain in her right side, and noticed that she was feeling very much better.
To my surprise, she called her doctor and canceled the surgery, then called her son and scheduled a plane trip to go visit him. Well, that was more than I could have asked for. She felt great. Not only did she avoid surgery, but she had her doctor’s permission to get off the medications. When she returned from her visit she scheduled a follow up visit with her PCP and he found that her blood pressure was normal, and she did not resume taking any medications. The Naprapathic treatments that she was undergoing were beginning to remove the tension in her spine, and thus the unusual pressure on the baro-receptors in her neck, helping to regain the normal heart health. She was standing taller than ever, and was a great deal more alert now.
I saw her for regular visits for a few more weeks and she continued to improve.
Drugs are toxins. If you are taking prescribed medications, you need to be asking yourself what harm are they doing? Is there an alternative that will help your body heal from the condition, or are the drugs just maintaining your diseased state? How do you feel when you are taking the drugs, and is it possible you would feel better if you were taking a more natural substance?
Toxins need to be flushed out of our systems on a regular basis. How often is your PCP telling you to employ a detoxification regimen? I doubt that they even understand the process. We should detoxify our bodies regularly. Not because we take drugs, but because waste happens every day. Our cells excrete waste daily and bacteria feed upon waste. Waste causes an acidic environment within our body tissues, and causes illness and disease. Our bodies must remain alkaline so that we can fight off disease, and taking drugs contributes to the acid environment. The least you can do for yourself is to detox your body whenever possible if you are not strong enough to stop taking the drugs.
If you need help, please let me know. I can guide you through a program that is not difficult, and will help you live longer and live a healthier life. I promise.
Warm regards, in health,
