Polypharmacy Raises Drug Side Effects Exponentially

       Limit your exposure to toxins of all kinds. The number of toxic
chemicals and their sources is so large, addressing them all could easily
require an entire library, but I believe you can help you keep your toxic
load as low as possible by becoming an informed and vigilant consumer. This
includes tossing out your toxic household cleaners, soaps, personal hygiene
products, air fresheners, bug sprays, lawn pesticides, and insecticides, just
to name a few, and replacing them with non-toxic alternatives.

        Get plenty of quality sleep. Scientists have discovered that your
circadian rhythms regulate the energy levels in your cells. In addition, the
proteins involved with your circadian rhythm and metabolism are intrinsically
linked and dependent upon each other. Therefore, when your circadian rhythm
is disrupted, it can have a profound influence on your physical health. For
example, research has also linked disrupted sleep cycles to serious health
problems like depression, coronary heart diseases, and even cancer.

        If you have any kind of sleep problem, whether you’re having trouble
falling asleep or staying asleep, my article 33 Secrets to a Good Night's
Sleep is packed with great tips to help you finally get some good rest.
It Takes Personal Involvement to Stay Healthy in a Sick System

    Ultimately, it's your body, and the decision to medicate yourself for an
ailment is yours alone. However, I urge you to research any drug your doctor
prescribes before you take it. Do not just take your doctor's word for its
safety. Most physicians have little information to offer you aside from what
they've been told by their drug reps.

    Also remember that no drug is completely safe. Even under the BEST
circumstances -- such as with a drug that has gone through unbiased,
stringent, long-term testing -- anything can happen when a drug is released
into the uncontrolled environment of your body. It may interact badly with
another drug you're taking, or perhaps a food you eat causes an unforeseen
reaction, or maybe your genetic makeup, metabolism or the state of your
immune system will cause it to have an unpredictable impact.

health announcements!

    In the case of prescription medications, the “product” is a potentially
dangerous chemical that may do more harm than good. This is certainly the
case with statins. One in four Americans are now taking a statin, when the
odds are greater than 100 to 1 that you don’t need it! Please understand that
unless you have familial hypercholesterolemia, you do NOT need a drug to
normalize your cholesterol. This can easily be achieved via diet and exercis

Polypharmacy Raises Drug Side Effects Exponentially

 Continued From Last Post.

Polypharmacy Raises Drug Side Effects Exponentially

    According to the latest statistics from the Kaiser Health Foundation,7
the average American aged 19 to 64 now takes nearly 12 prescription drugs.
The average senior is on 28. The word 'polypharmacy' means "many drugs," and
essentially refers to these instances where an individual is taking multiple
drugs -- often because more drugs are prescribed than are clinically

    This is a significant problem, as the more drugs you mix together, the
greater the chances of serious side effects. And, if the average American is
taking a dozen different prescription drugs, and the average prescription
drug carries 70 side effects… do the math! That's an average of 770 potential
individual side effects but the drug to drug interaction is far higher and is
likely one to two orders of magnitude greater. To me, this is simply
unacceptable, especially considering that most drugs people take are for
conditions that can be better treated, and prevented, using natural methods.

Take Control of Your Health

    Anytime you’re considering taking a drug, whether you’ve succumbed to a
seductive drug ad or your doctor wants to prescribe one for an ailment you’ve
presented, please do remember that you carry the ultimate responsibility
here. Don’t trust blindly; ask questions about the drugs prescribed to you,
such as:

        Do I really need this drug?
        Is it prescribed appropriately, or is it being prescribed for an
        off-label use?
        What are the side effects?
        Is it addictive?
        What are the natural alternatives?

    In the majority of cases, you’ll likely find that you can prevent or
resolve the condition not by taking a drug, but by following these basic
tenets of optimal health:

        Eat a healthy diet focused on fresh, whole foods (ideally organic
and/or locally-grown). Try to eat a large portion of your food raw.

        You want to pay careful attention to keeping your insulin levels
down, which means avoiding sugars and grains of all kinds, and replacing the
lost carbs with healthful fats. Also be mindful of your protein sources,
making sure they’re of high quality (ideally organically-raised and pasture-
fed). A high-fat, moderate protein, low-carb diet is likely to improve the
health of most people. My optimized Nutritional Plan can guide you, whether
you’re at a beginner’s or advanced level.

        Consume healthy fat. The science is loud and clear on this point:
omega-3 fats are essential for optimal health. Unfortunately most fish
commercially available today are polluted with mercury, PCBs and other toxic
substances, which is why I recommend you take a supplement like krill oil
instead of getting it from your food. Other healthy fats include coconut oil,
avocados, olives, olive oil, butter and macadamia nuts. All these fats are
low in protein and carbs and will not impair insulin, leptin or mTOR.

        Make clean, pure water your primary beverage, and steer clear of all
sweetened and/or flavored beverages, including those that contain artificial

        Manage your stress.

        Exercise regularly. Ideally, you want a comprehensive fitness regimen
that includes stretching, high intensity interval training, core
strengthening exercises and strength training.

        Get plenty of appropriate sun exposure to optimize your vitamin D
levels naturally. UV exposure also has additional health benefits beyond
vitamin D production.

        A robust and growing body of research clearly shows that vitamin D is
absolutely critical for your health. The D*Action project has been initiated
by GrassrootsHealth along with 42 leading vitamin D researchers to
demonstrate how health can be achieved right now with what’s known about
vitamin D with a combination of vitamin D measurement and health outcome
tracking. To learn more, please see this recent article.

        I encourage you to participate in the D*Action Project, which has
multiple concurrent vitamin D programs going on. Not only will you be able to
take control of your own health by participating, you’ll also become part of
one of the most profound public health projects of the 21st Century. To
participate, simply purchase the D*Action Measurement Kit and follow the
registration instructions included. As a participant, you agree to test your
vitamin D levels twice a year during a five year program, and share your
health status to demonstrate the public health impact of this nutrient. There
is a $65 fee each 6 months for your sponsorship of the project, which
includes a test kit to be used at home, and electronic reports on your
ongoing progress. You will get a follow up email every six months reminding
you "it's time for your next test and health survey."

 Ninety-Nine Out of 100 People Do Not Need Statin Drugs

 Continued From Last Post.

    That these drugs have proliferated the market the way they have is a
testimony to the effectiveness of direct-to-consumer marketing, corruption
and corporate greed, because the odds are very high — greater than 1000 to 1
— that if you're taking a statin, you don't really need it. From my review,
the ONLY subgroup that might benefit are those born with a genetic defect
called familial hypercholesterolemia, as this makes them resistant to
traditional measures of normalizing cholesterol.

    Even more importantly, cholesterol is NOT the cause of heart disease. If
your physician is urging you to check your total cholesterol, then you should
know that this test will tell you virtually nothing about your risk of heart
disease, unless it is 330 or higher. HDL percentage is a far more potent
indicator for heart disease risk. Here are the two ratios you should pay
attention to:

        HDL/Total Cholesterol Ratio: Should ideally be above 24 percent. If
below 10 percent, you have a significantly elevated risk for heart disease.
        Triglyceride/HDL Ratio: Should be below 2.

    I have seen a number of people with total cholesterol levels over 250 who
were actually at low risk for heart disease due to their elevated HDL levels.
Conversely, I have seen many people with cholesterol levels under 200 who had
a very high risk of heart disease, based on their low HDL. NMR testing is
another important new lipid assessment you can now take to determine your
risk for heart disease.

    Remember, your body NEEDS cholesterol — it is important in the production
of cell membranes, hormones, vitamin D and bile acids that help you to digest
fat. Cholesterol also helps your brain form memories and is vital to your
neurological function. There is also strong evidence that having too little
cholesterol INCREASES your risk for cancer, memory loss, Parkinson's disease,
hormonal imbalances, stroke, depression, suicide, and violent behavior.

Turn Off the Tube and Tune in to Your Body’s Innate Wisdom


    These ads are now on your TV, in magazines and on the Internet, so it’s
difficult to eliminate your exposure. What you can do, however, is keep a
healthy air of skepticism about you whenever you do see a drug commercial.

Really listen to the side effects and ask yourself if cancer is an acceptable
risk for a drug to treat an embarrassing skin condition, for example.

    If you think you might need the drug, first seek out an unbiased source
of information to see if you truly do. The internet can frequently be a
helpful tool here.

    Also check for the truth about side effects. The average drug comes with
a list of 70 potential reactions, according to researchers who used a
computer program to analyze 5,600 drug labels. If you take one of the more
commonly prescribed drugs, the potential drug reactions rise to about 100 --
and some drugs even carry over 500. Given that, it’s not so surprising that
more than 700,000 people visit U.S. emergency rooms each year as a result of
adverse drug reactions. Not only that, but according to the U.S. Food and

Drug Administration (FDA), adverse drug reactions from drugs that are
properly prescribed and properly administered cause about 106,000 deaths per
year, making prescription drugs the fourth-leading cause of death in the US.
