Does Crime Pay? You Decide.

Recently GlaxoSmithKline, the international pharmaceutical giant pleaded guilty to alleged criminal activities and agreed to resolve civil issues “including promotion of certain prescription drugs, its failure to report certain safety data and its civil liability for alleged false price reporting practices.”

The drugs involved were Paxil, Wellbutrin, Avandia, Advair, Lamictal and Zofrann.   Various serious breaches were indicated.

So besides the serious side effects (direct effects) of drugs-the fact that drugs can never heal you-only hide symptoms, here are a few more troubling facts; medical doctors are receiving kickbacks, there are sham advisory boards, Dr.’s using medications not recommended for children under 18, and promoting medication for symptoms that have not been approved by the FDA…

What is the answer?

From my perspective as a holistic practitioner with over 30 years of clinical experience and 200,000 + patient visits, the answer is clear…

Use medication sparingly for life threatening conditions and all other conditions need to be addressed by taking personal responsibility in our 6 essential choices.  Or you will become one of the statistics of people suffering from the many side effects (direct effects) of giving your power (of choice) away to a drug.
