Warning about Five Pharmaceutical Drugs

In nowadays, in order to fight the germs and diseases that attack the human’s body, the people rely on the pharmaceutical industry. Developing new medications is the constant goal of the researchers, trying to find the best option to help the people to remain healthy.

Even though that nobody believes that the pharmaceutical industry would sell harmful products, there are cases that showed the opposite. The fact that the pharmaceutical industry is one of the most powerful industries in the world and the attitude of the competition between the pharmacists, sometimes they are doing wrong things and selling drugs that are dangerous. The producers have sole control over what medications and drugs are released and sold to the public.

Some problems with the medication are caused because of the dependence on it, which for example happens when taking the painkillers.

In this article below we are presenting you the top 5 pharmaceutical drugs that immediately harm your health.

1. Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI)

The PPI helps reduce the creation and production of acid by blocking the enzyme in the wall of the stomach in case of the formation of most ulcers. By using PPIs can be increased the risk of developing kidney disease, dementia, and even heart attacks. For those who are constantly suffering from heartburn and have been prescribed for a PPI, it is recommended to speak to your doctor about the potential alternative treatments. You should be focused on the causes of your acid reflux.

2. Prednisone

This steroid you can use in preventing the release of substances that cause inflammation, as well as if you suffer from lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. It actually suppresses the immune system and by doing this it is actually compromising the body by making it more vulnerable to infections. Some side effects of taking it can be insomnia, mood swings, headaches, and dizziness. In order to avoid the side – effects, you can use some natural ways to reduce inflammation that doesn’t compromise the immune system. Consult your doctor and find out some natural alternatives.

3. Statins

In order to manage the cholesterol, many people use statins, which are most common drugs being taken by adults. In case of the short-term use, the people may experience muscle aches, insomnia, headaches, and nausea. However, in case of the long-term use, they can cause serious consequences, which is linked to the depletion of the CoQ10 enzyme. This enzyme is vital for the human’s body and required for energy and cardiovascular health.

4. Antidepressants

The CDC reports that 1 in 10 children over the age of 12 are taking antidepressants, and what’s is really shocking is that 60% of those children have been taking it a longer period of time (for at least two years). Their effects can vary and do work for some people, but for others, they have no effect. They are even killing and harming their brain in the process. For instance, the antidepressants such as Prozac are known for increasing the serotonin levels. However, the side effects are occurring after a few weeks of taking it, because the brain responds to it by making less serotonin.

A study conducted by the University of Liverpool, including 1,800 New Zealanders whit a particular dose of the antidepressants, concluded that half of the people suffered psychological symptoms once they stopped taking them.

5. Opioids

Opioids help in relieving the pain immediately and are usually prescribed by the doctors for an acute pain. However, many studies showed that they may not be the best solution for chronic or acute pain. One of the biggest concern about these drugs is that the people become addicted to them. When the people become addicted, they start abusing the drug and that can lead to severe health issues, such as liver damage.

Alternative Treatments

– In case of constantly feeling pain in one of your muscles – put down the opioids and go get a “special touch.”

– If you trick the brain into thinking the pain is gone it can be the only temporary solution.

– It makes more sense to seek a specialist like a chiropractor

The high cholesterol can be regulated by the proper diet, so you should be concerned about what you’re eating, not about the drugs you’re taking. It is recommended to add olive oil, oats, and garlic to your diet, as they reduce inflammation and can even lower your bad LDL cholesterol. They are also good in increasing your good HDL cholesterol.

The bad acid reflux can be treated by using an herbal relief instead of pharmaceutical drugs.
