AVOID PRESCRIPTION DRUGS WHENEVER POSSIBLE TO AVOID BRAIN DISEASES SUCH AS DEMENTIA

Some Common MISDIAGNOSIS
Can Land You In A Nursing Home!

HERE’S HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR LOVED ONES

It’s absolutely heartbreaking. All over the world, nursing homes are filled with frail, feeble residents suffering from dementia. In many cases, these folks are so far gone they don’t even recognize their own children.

But I’m going to let you in on a dark, dirty secret: Many of these patients do not have dementia at all.

Their memory loss, confusion, and delirium are caused by prescription drugs!

And so are many of their other problems.

This is not just speculation on my part. It’s fully documented in the medical journals. In fact, it’s so common that there are even medical terms for it. Like “polypharmacy,” which means giving a patient too many different drugs. And “iatrogenic illness,” which means any illness caused by doctors.

According to the medical journals, polypharmacy and iatrogenic illness are rampant throughout the globe.

  • One study determined that one of the major causes of falls in nursing homes is the side effects caused by medications.
  • Another study found that 97% of nursing home patients take at least one drug, with 17% taking 5 or more!
  • Yet another study concluded that many drugs can cause Parkinson’s-like symptoms and concluded that “drug-induced parkinsonism is frequent.”
  • And still another study listed 22 different categories of drugs that can cause symptoms that mimic Alzheimer’s… plus 14 differentover-the-counter drugs that can cause those symptoms!

Here’s a typical scenario. A healthy person goes to the doctor for a checkup and is told his cholesterol or blood pressure is high. So he starts taking medication, which causes side effects. This leads his doctor to give him a second drug to treat those side effects. But, of course, that second drug causes new side effects. So the doctor prescribes a third drug to treat the side effects of the second one!

Before you know it, the person’s health is spiraling downward and  soon needs people to take care of him. And everyone just chalks it up to “old age.”

But you can fight back against this system of medicine prescriptions becoming rampant.  First of all, make sure you always try natural remedies first. Pharmaceuticals should be a last resort, not a first option. Secondly, if you have a loved one in a nursing home, talk to a naturally minded physician about possibly weaning them off the drugs. This single step may make a huge difference to their health and well-being.
