Prescription for disaster?Submitted by paul4won on Wed, 01/28/2009 - 07:54
I was on Rx thyroid supplements for 10+ years, was told I would have to take them the rest of my life. It took a LOT of digging, but I found another way. I have been off supplements for over a year, my weight has FINALLY stabilized (I just got fatter and fatter on the prescriptions.) Not everyone can get off their Rx meds, but I urge you to look BEYOND the person who prescribed them for options. It is funny, doctors are supposed to give you risks, benefits and alternatives to any treatment they recommend. But their idea of "alternatives" is letting you pick which drug to take... that is their indoctrination from the AMA who runs all the medical schools. Rockefeller founded the AMA, if you were not aware.
The pharma industry can fail, too. At least KNOW a non-prescription alternative, in case the day comes that your prescription is not available. This is going to be a HUGE problem if people on ssri's or other drugs for "mental illness" are suddenly cut off. The withdrawal can include extreme psychotic episodes. Up to 25% of the population may be suddenly without their "numb me, dumb me" pills. Yippee.
