Prescription Drugs

I am taking several doctor prescribed meds. One for depression, one for sleep, one for reflex disease, 3 for pain that I have in my leg from a full leg DVT after a car accident 10 years ago. The DVT took almost a year to resolve itself and left behind some permanent damage in my leg.

I am sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I take almost 20 pills, most of which don’t work and make me tired and constipated. I vomit at least twice a week and I feel like crap. I am only 56 years old and don’t want to feel like this for the rest of my life.

My cousin swears by these products. So, I need to know if these 3 products: Colloidal silver, probiotics and zeolite will cause negative side affects / interfere with my meds? I am taking a couple pills that I will need to be weened off. I can send you the names of the pills if you need them.

Thank you,

Hi Penny,
You are too young to feel anything but good. But doing so may require a lot of diligence and hard work. If you’re overweight, you can never be as healthy as you should be without reducing the weight. One must get some exercise outside in the sunshine; modest walking is good.

Just remember, disease is not a deficiency of drugs as mainstream medicine would have us believe! Another thing to remember, clinical studies are not only often fabricated by drug companies, there are almost never studies done on the effects of combinations and multiples of combinations of drugs. It is very likely that some of the drugs you’re taking to counter the side effects of other drugs. This is chemical insanity and almost never ends well for those caught up in that hamster wheel. Therefore the symptoms and side effects from taking these chemical concoctions can be almost anything one can imagine, from physical maladies to psychosis.

Sleep: The issue of insomnia is one of the most critical of issues involving both mental and physical health. You may want to read this from our Home Page, Insomnia and Sleeplessness Protocol

Constipation: Colon Klenz can often diminish the effects of constipation.

Reflux: Mainstream medicine usually treats this with ‘anti-acid’ drugs, but very often it is caused by a lack of stomach acid rather than too much stomach acid. If you don’t have enough acid, your food will not digest properly causing ‘indigestion’. A simple test is, next time you get acid reflux, take 1-2 teaspoons of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar in 4-8 ounces of water. Generally if this improves your indigestion, then that indicates you are low in stomach acid. You may also want to look at this Enzyme Healing Protocol for digestion.

Healing: Silver has been found to enhance tissue healing, taken orally and used topically to damaged tissue. Enzymes can also reduce fibrin buildup and scar tissue which might improve your leg damage. One of the secret weapons (in surgery and medicine, as well as for athletes in the Olympics) of the old Soviet Union and the Eastern block countries was the use of “Systemic Enzymes” to enhance the healing of physical damage.

DVT: Enzymes can also reduce clots, but that may then alter your anti-clotting medication needs. The best thing you could do is to find a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) who is also an MD, who can see you personally. You should not simply go “cold turkey” off of multiple drugs without close and expert supervision.

Never take Enzymes with drugs, as they will enhance your body’s absorption, causing the dosages to be too high. Enzymes taken with other supplements is usually good as they will reduce the wasting of the supplements- also aiding the body’s absorption.  Colloidal silver, Zeolite, and Probiotics should not interfere with any drugs, but to be on the cautious side, simply take them your supplements at different times from your drugs.

Prescription Drugs 62,000 Times More Likely To Kill Than Supplements

by: Tony Isaacs

(The Best Years in Life) According to data just released by the UK-based Alliance for Natural Health International (ANH-Intl), pharmaceutical drugs are 62,000 times more likely to kill you than supplements. In fact, the data collected by ANH-Intl demonstrates that food supplements are the safest substances regularly consumed by UK citizens even though they are the target of increasingly restrictive European legislation aimed at ‘protecting consumers.’

The newly released data found that pharmaceutical drugs were also 7,750 times more likely to result in death than herbal remedies. Both food supplements and herbal remedies were placed in the ‘supersafe’ category of individual risk – with a less than one in ten million risk of death.The stark contrast between the safety of supplements and mainstream medicine
By contrast, being admitted to a UK hospital or taking prescription drugs exposes a person to one of the greatest preventable risks in society. Overall, preventable medical injuries in UK hospitals expose patients to the same risk of death as being deployed on military service to Afghanistan – both of which are around 300,000 times greater than the risk of death from taking natural health products.ANH-Intl executive and scientific director, Dr. Robert Verkerk, PhD, hailed the figures as shedding new light on the question of natural healthcare’s safety. “These figures tell us not only what activities an individual is most or least likely to die from, but also what the relative risks of various activities are to society as a whole. It puts some real perspective on the actual risk of death posed by food supplements and herbal remedies at a time when governments are clamping down because they tell us they’re dangerous.”Verkerk added, “When compared with the risk of taking food supplements, an individual is around 900 times more likely to die from food poisoning and nearly 300,000 times more likely to die from a preventable medical injury during a spell in a UK hospital. The latter is on a par with the risk of death from active military service in Iraq or Afghanistan.”

According to Dr. Verkerk, the new figures should put pressure on UK and European authorities to reduce regulatory burdens on natural health products. “Governments justify the increasingly elaborate and restrictive new laws affecting natural health products on grounds of public safety,” said Verkerk. “They argue that reducing consumer access to food supplements and herbal remedies, with the consequent negative impacts on small businesses manufacturing, distributing and selling such products, is in society’s interest. But the evidence is simply not there – where are the bodies?”

Among other key points presented in the data were:

* Pharmaceutical drugs pose nearly double the risk of death than motorcycle accidents on UK roads

* While herbal medicines can both be regarded as ‘supersafe,’ preventable medical injuries in UK hospitals are in the ‘Dangerous’ category, with a risk of death greater than 1 in 1,000.

In the United States the story is much the same
In the United States, it is estimated that prescription drugs kill over 200,000 people every year. Over 105,000 of those deaths come from side effects of drugs even when they are properly prescribed and administered. By contrast, in any given year zero deaths are reported from vitamins, minerals and food supplements and anywhere from zero to only a couple of deaths reported for all supplements.

Despite the track record of safety for dietary and herbal supplements in the U.S., supplements are coming under increasing attacks from mainstream medicine just as they are in the UK. Clearly, the major risk supplements pose is to the bottom line profits of those who make the far more dangerous mainstream drugs.
