From a young age, I was aware of side effects of the different medications I had been exposed to. Having heard my parents talk of the loss of a baby with deformities thanks to thalidomide, some of my earliest health memories were the fears discussed on a regular basis. By age 6 I’d already suffered a cardiac/respiratory arrest due to the side effects of an anæsthetic, and by age 18 I saw the side effects of various vaccinations and even OTC medicines.
Rather than just accept them as a rather sick game of Russian roulette, I have spent my adult life seeking ‘others’ aka effective options – both orthodox and alternative – to things that I simply wont consider using.
In my family alone, we have seen medication side effects ranging from minor to fatal –
- Thalidomide deformity
- Cardiac/respiratory arrest
- Blindness threat
- Heart failure
- Infantile brain bleed
- ARV drugs are simply banned chemotherapy drugs, deemed to toxic for a cancer sufferer to use as it was causing more deaths than the actual cancers it was used for. As HIV has a dark cloud over it, and the general belief that ‘they are dying anyway’ apparently it’s okay to use this chemo cocktail because there is no other way. Forget AIDS has never been proven to even exist.
- Within cancer research, it is a well known fact that chemo kills more than all the cancers combined, yet ask anyone and they will say that modern medicine has cured most cancers. Why? Clever spin and manipulation of the heart strings.
- Thalidomide, for 50 years has been considered one of the evils of modern medicine. It has simply been repackaged and is now used as chemo under another name.
- Doctors and dentists push one of Hitler’s waste products as a healthy option. Fluoride – google its history. How educated experts still believe a nerve gas ingredient can possibly save oral health is one of today’s great medical mysteries.
- Vaccines are currently clogging up the legal system. Despite millions of recorded side effect cases ranging from rash to death, twisted truths and propaganda keep the public living in fear and brainwashed into thinking they are doing the right thing by pumping an otherwise perfectly healthy infant with toxins. Yet billions are paid out every year – hush money. And no one is held liable – not your doctor, not your pharmacist, not the manufacturers – perfect Catch 22.
- Prozac, arguably linked to more suicides than common depression, was facing the biggest lawsuit (and still is) in history. Rather than ban it outright, it went silent for a few years until the patent ran out, then it was dipped in a pretty mauve dye, repackaged and sold as a miracle cure for a newly invented disorder (pre menstrual dysphoric disorder) aka PMS. Sales went through the roof while depression, PMS and suicide is recorded in higher levels than ever before in history. But don’t worry folks, at least those poor gals have their diagnosis…
