Is it possible to thrive without antipsychotics, high-powered painkillers, and statin drugs?
More importantly, are natural alternatives really as ‘dangerous’ as mainstream health officials claim?
Sure, there have been some great advancements in the field of medical science, but profit mongering and a blatant disregard for public health has driven big pharma giants to throw science to the wind and unleash a variety of harmful yet profitable pharmaceuticals.
It is thanks to this motive that pharmaceuticals have now led to more deaths than traffic fatalities in the United States.
Vitamin D , which can be obtained by simply stepping outside, has been found to slash your risk of cancer, obesity, and the flu . Of course, unless you are supplementing thousands of times over the safe limit of vitamin D, there are virtually zero side effects to accompany these benefits.
Meanwhile, statin drugs have been linked in peer-reviewed research to more than 304 diseases conservatively.
This information directly challenges and disproves the claims of many supposed health ‘experts’ that pharmaceuticals and invasive mainstream medical interventions are the only answer to treating (certainly not curing) disease. If we were to see a medical paradigm shift into natural, or at least integrated medicine, we would see a dramatic slash in cancer rates simply from educating the world about the benefits of free vitamin D. Some estimates place 70% of U.S. children  in the vitamin D deficiency category, as well as a large number of adults. Imagine if health officials were to adopt more integrated health principles, such as the consumption and supplementation of a spice known as turmeric.
Turmeric is known to positively affect over 573 diseases  according to peer-reviewed research. Why have the governments of the world not recommended these free or inexpensive supplements to their citizens, potentially saving billions in healthcare costs per year? Instead, government organizations like the CDC and the FDA push pharmaceuticals on the public while suppressing many health-promoting supplements like turmeric.
The truth of the matter is that big pharma cannot profit on free vitamin D, or extremely inexpensive turmeric. In a nation where public health was truly a concern, these substances would be readily available and replacing harmful pharmaceuticals that contain 70 negative side-effects on average .
Hospitals, which offer no form of prevention against disease, would slowly begin to disappear as the need diminishes. Citizens would optimize their health through avoiding toxic ingredients likemercury-containing high-fructose corn syrup , BPA , and genetically modified  ingredients after they were all outlawed from domestic and imported food products.
Currently, we live in a very unnatural society. You are not meant to feel sick, broken down, and rely upon invasive surgeries and damaging pharmaceuticals to sustain your health. It’s time to shift to a new health paradigm, where natural living is paramount.
