Recently, it was announced that some blood pressure medications are being recalled because they can cause cancer. To see the story click HERE
This really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Most meds already have INSANE side effects that are WORSE than what you took them for in the first place.
And things get complicated even more if you are taking several doctor-prescribed drugs at a time.
It might be time to look at natural remedies to treat what ails you. For example GARLIC PILLS can reduce blood pressure.
But no one will tell you that because no one makes money off garlic.
Looking at it from a business perspective, it makes perfect sense: What is the number one goal of most companies?
To make money. To become profitable.
In order for a business to be successful, it needs customers, preferably repeat customers. When it comes to medicine, what does that mean?
It means they need a constant supply of sick people. It does them no good if you only use their product one time. Maybe it’s a coincidence that many medications we take today require a person to take them for YEARS in many cases:
- High blood pressure
The cost of taking these meds over time can add up, which makes the drug manufacturers (and their shareholders) quite wealthy. The cost of these meds and their side effects should be motivation to seek out natural health remedies that are cheaper and have few side effects.
Of course the skeptics will refuse to believe in the power of natural remedies, but the studies are out there. They just don’t get talked about because again, no one makes money off of them.
For example, one study cites the benefits of garlic supplements:
“Garlic supplements have shown promise in the treatment of uncontrolled hypertension, lowering blood pressure (BP) by about 10 mmHg systolic and 8 mmHg diastolic, similar to standard BP medication.”

The Symptom is NOT the Answer
Another concern with many medications is they focus solely on your symptoms. While alleviating the symptoms might ease our discomfort in the short term, it does nothing to prevent them from recurring.
The goal should be to take medication temporarily, and not need it anymore, but that’s often not the case.
It’s time to change your mindset when it comes to our health. Instead of relying on man-made drugs for a short term fix, it’s critical we focus on improving our overall health. This can be accomplished with a combination of diet, exercise, alleviating stress and getting to the source of our health issues.
Here are four simple, yet effective ways to achieve (and maintain) good health:
When it comes down to it, taking medication every day is something we all should do. But the question is which type of medicine are you taking: medicine from the doctor, or medicine from nature?
One medicine is quite expensive, and may have some nasty side effects. The other medication might be quite tasty, has few side effects, and is much cheaper.
The choice is yours!
Don’t wait until you’re sick to start taking better of yourself. In addition, if you’re currently taking medication, look at natural healing methods. You might be pleasantly surprised at what you find.
