There’s a relatively new class of drugs being offered to the public. They are called “biologics”. Biologics are made from genetically engineered proteins which come from human genes. They are designed to “alter” your immune system in a way that will inhibit inflammation and pain. They are given to patients who experience chronic pain from arthritis , Chron’s disease and other chronic conditions.
Unfortunately, although they do relieve pain and inflammation, they do so at a very high cost to your overall health. They have been linked to dangerous side effects and even death. According to Dr. Bruce West, they can increase your risk of getting dangerous infections and even cause flare-ups of some chronic diseases.
Dr. West recently wrote about a friend who was diagnosed with MS at the age of 70. Apparently, it is extrememly rare for people to get MS at such a late age. After doing some in-depth research, Dr. West spoke with an attorney who said he had recently won a case for a client who had come down with MS as a result of taking a “biologic” medicine. And, he said his client was just the tip of the iceberg. He estimated that there were thousands of such cases “out there” that are actually not MS, but are MS like side effects caused by neurological damage from biologic drugs.
Of course, you will most likely never hear about this from you doctor, as he is trained to overlook and minimize the importance of such information.
Here are a list of some common biologics:
Actemra, Cimzia, Enbrel, Humira, Kineret, Orencia, Remicade, Rituxan and Simpoint.
And there will most likely be many more to add to that list as time goes on. Pharmaceutical companies have 907 new biologics that they are working on to treat a long list of diseases.
The good news is.. your body knows how to treat pain and inflammation naturally. It does so every day when it regenerates broken bones, worn joints, torn ligaments, injured muscles and more. But it can only do this if it has the raw materials it needs for repair and rebuilding. You can choose to take charge of your health by working in cooperation with nature and the wonderful raw materials she has given mankind… or you can choose to hand over your health to those who are motivated by “profit” first and foremost.
Natural foods, natural high quality supplements and fresh air and sunshine are among the most beneficial medicines you can give your body. And, their side effects are nothing short of amazing!
