Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia and Smoking

Ya, we all know smoking cigarettes is not good for us but how do we quit?

Cigarette

Cigarettes are not good for anyone but if you have a chronic illness like Fibromyalgia you are adding a major blow to your health. If you lead a sedentary life and smoke, you are inviting all kinds of disaster into your life.

When I saw the commercial of a surgeon slapping down a major artery and squishing the white, thick, gunk that had totally filled the major aorta to the heart of a dead 32 male, I changed the opinion of my passion for smoking. I will never forget that image and I don’t think they should have take the commercial off the air, talk about reality biting you in the ass! I searched the internet and found a similar commercial. See for yourself.


I quit with laser therapy, which worked for me but I am worried about the long term effects of the lasers as it is fairly new and something that was passed by the FDA?????????? How many drugs did they approve that ended in disaster. It is also very expensive but if done right, it can work..

Be careful as they are also passing off a lot of lasers that aren’t really intended to work for quitting smoking. Kind of like the fake Louis Vuitton, Prada and Coach purses. So if you decide to do laser, make sure it is reputable because you
will be wasting about $300.00 on a fake laser that will have you back smoking in no time.

The patches are full of chemicals as well as the cigarettes so are we just trading up addictions? More toxic drugs for the already sick body!

Zyban gave my husband serum sickness, his body swelled up and went toxic, nasty!! The drugs really aren’t the answer, they only add another possibility of addiction or side effects.

I know that quitting smoking is one of the hardest things to do, definitely in line with heroin and sugar. Whether it is drugs, cigarettes, alcohol or food, an addiction is an addictions. We are all human.

There are real options now!

The Health Ranger recommends 14andOut.com if you are looking to quit smoking. Shawn Cohen has found a way
to do it successfully and is helping thousands. It is also at an affordable price right now. It is regular $59.00 on sale at the time of this post for $39.00. How many packages of cigarettes would it take to pay for that? 

This is the most comprehensive smoking cessation program ever, and it only takes 60 minutes to learn.

What? 60 minutes? You are worth it! If I were still smoking, I would give this a try.

 

Why not give it a try?

What have you got to lose? Cigarettes, smelly breath/clothes/house/car, toxins, addiction, breathing difficulties, scrounging for money to buy cigarettes, risk of lung cancer, heart disease, bronchitis, emphysema, asthma or dying.

 

 

What have you got to gain? Your life, your health, money in your pocket, better health, keep smelling fresh and clean all day, no addiction or chain to drag you into a winter storm for a drag, fresh breath, breathing period and most of all, YOUR FREEDOM! I felt like I was chained to my pack of smokes.

I can tell you something else too, my friends who have stayed smoking have grey hair and I don’t. You also wrinkle up and age your body and skin a lot quicker so you really are giving up your youth and vitality to smoke.


http://premium.naturalnews.tv/14AndOut__TV.htm

Smoking is not the cause of your Fibromyalgia but it is not helping either. They really are a limiting belief, you tell yourself you can’t live without them because, believe me, you can life a far better life without them, change your thinking.

Consider your poor thyroid, brain and lungs and how many toxins you are giving them with every drag. Smokers lose teeth too!

Is your body and your pocket book worth the expense of smoking? I think you are worth the consideration of butting out.

What it comes down to is, you have to be ready. Good luck!

If you are suffering from Fibromyalgia, I can help.

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

Just released from Ottawa, March 27, 2013.

The Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse (CCSA), in partnership with the National Advisory Council (NAC) on Prescription Drug Misuse, today released a comprehensive 10-year, pan-Canadian strategy, First Do No Harm: Responding to Canada’s Prescription Drug Crisis.

The strategy highlights the action required to address the devastating harms associated with prescription drugs in Canada in the areas of prevention, education, treatment, monitoring and surveillance, and enforcement.

Harm such as addiction, overdose and death associated with certain prescription drugs.

– opioids

– sedatives

– tranquilizers

– stimulants

They are a leading public health and safety concern in Canada that has now reached crisis proportions,” stated Michel Perron, Chief Executive Officer, CCSA and NAC Co-Chair.

The number of opioid-related deaths are increasing, emergency room visits are on the rise and there are increased demands for treatment.

Canada now ranks as the world’s second largest per capita consumer of prescription opioids, with the United States ranked as number one (International Narcotics Control Board, 2013).

Canada‘s rate of use increased by 203% between 2000 and 2010, an increase steeper than in the United States

(International Narcotics Control Board).

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

The FDA – Do they really have your best interest at heart?

I was just reading from the Health Ranger that they have shut down yet another
natural healer, I went to the FDA’s website to check things out. Upon the last       paragraph that I read:

FDA, an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

  • protects the public health by assuring the safety, effectiveness and security of

  • human and veterinary drugs

  • vaccines and other biological products for human use

  • medical devices.

  • FDA also is responsible for the safety and security of our

  • nation’s food supply

  • cosmetics

  • dietary supplements

  • products that give off electronic radiation

  • regulating tobacco products.

I am in awe of this statement when in fact they allow all kinds of products on the      shelves that will indeed harm us. They even block out products that help heal and         even fight cancer and herbs and natural medicines that have been healing people for thousands of years because they can’t profit from them.

There are no regulations on cleaning products or personal care products and they            are filled with many toxic chemicals that can indeed harm you. They allow chemicals, preservatives, dyes, aspartame, msg, and genetically modified chemicals into your         food chain without your knowledge. They allow mercury in vaccines and all kinds               of drugs onto the market that are later pulled off because of severe side effects or        death. They allow them there to begin with, then they play the hero of pulling them          off the shelf to protect us when they find out they cause harm to humans? Vicious         little circle.

I include everything on my website that I want to keep in my collection. These             videos show the other side of the FDA and the Drug Companies they don’t want               you to know about. Proof that they are causing harm to humans. We have been               kept in the dark too long and I believe we are putting our trust in the devil. You                  be the judge and make your own informed decisions:

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

 

I did some research on only the top 12 drug companies revenue in 2010 which totals 445.3 billion dollars, 210.75 billion was made in US alone. This is not even
including therapeutic devices. Bribery, cash and gifts to push their products:

Johnson & Johnson – U.S. 61.9 billion

Pfizer – U.S. 50.01

Roche – Switzerland 47.35

GlaxoSmithKline – United Kingdom 45.83

Novartis – Switzerland 44.27

Sanofi – France 41.99

AstraZeneca – UK/Sweden 32.81

Abbott Laboratories – U.S. 30.76

Merck & Co. – U.S. 27.43

Bayer HealthCare – Germany 22.30

Eli Lilly U.S. – 21.84

Bristol – Myers Squibb – U.S. 18.81

There are 153 drug companies in the incomplete listing so one can imagine how much money is made in the drug industry.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_pharmaceutical_companies

Are we seeing the whole picture here? Why do we have such a sick world? Why is there that much illness that we are needing billions of dollars worth of drugs and it keeps increasing yearly? There is something wrong here.

The more chemicals we introduce into our food chain, personal care and cleaning products, the more illness we are seeing.

Dr Mercola has a great article on the bribery, fraud, illegal activities, mistakes
and get out of jail free of these drug companies. Why do they keep getting to
repeating their criminal activity? If it were you and I we would be out in jail
and out of business. We are being jailed for selling natural milk and healing
people. The more drugs you purchase, the more you are supporting these corporate criminals to keep hurting people and raking in the big doe while doing it.

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/11/18/drug-companies-are-ranked-in-the-top-100-corporate-criminals-of-the-1990s.aspx

Horrified scientists discover GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is responsible for causing an up to 1700 percent increase in narcolepsy among children and teenagers under 17 years of age from their H1N1 Swine flu vaccine in 1990.


http://www.naturalnews.com/035501_vaccines_narcolepsy_children.html

Isn’t it really just all about money? Pharmaceutical bribes uncovered – Jon Barron reports.

Pharmaceuticals are the #2 unintentional deaths in the US

Drug companies make contributions to doctors and medical organizations

eg. – Pfizer paid more than $20 million to 4,500 doctors or medical professionals for consulting and speaking on their behalf

Pharmaceutical corruption drives companies to:

– lavish gifts

– lunches

– samples

– discounts

– contributions

– club memberships and more to sway doctors to prescribe their products and speak on their behalf

– 25% of all physicians accept cash gifts from drug companies

– 75% routinely accept in-kind gifts for meals, entertainment and the like

– physicians are the biggest gift recipients

– department chairs and professors of psychiatry at numerous universities routinely accept gifts worth up to tens of thousands of dollars for lecturing on behalf of drug companies

– examples

1. Charles Nemeroff, Chairman of Psychiatry at Emory University, who earned more than 2.8 million from various drug makers between 2000 to 2007 

2. Dr Frederick Goodwin, former director of the National Institute of Mental Health pocketed more than 1.3 million for giving marketing lectures on behalf of  drug companies to physicians.

Perhaps that explains why antidepressants are the most commonly prescribed medication in the US, despite the fact that their track record is downright depressing.


http://www.jonbarron.org/natural-health/pharmaceutical-corruption-sunshine-act

Thank you Jon for providing those facts for us. This is the US alone, compile this problem world wide and it is a very serious problem.

Do these facts and statistics sound like they have your best interests in mind or more their pocket books? Do you see now why they are trying to crush Natural healers and why they don’t want you to become healthy? How do we know which doctors are prescribing for profit? Quite frankly it is frightening and it makes me sick how they have involved children in their profit circle. What has this world come to?

This website is designed to help inform those who are looking for health without drugs. I have been there, done that and it only led me to frailty, despair and near death. If you want to keep informed on what is really going on out there and to finding wellness, sign up for my newsletter and rss feed. If you are looking for health in a pill bottle, then this website isn’t for you.

My mission is to restore my natural healing and to help you find yours!

Do you ever pay attention to aspirin and tylenol commercials? Doctor prescribed so it is okay to take an aspirin a day. People enjoying their life once again dancing around, running, doing sports again, all because of these great pain killers. Like this magic dust that covers our insides with goodness and joy so we can live once again!

I think it is misleading the younger generation and they are taking them like candy because of false beliefs that they are good for you, they won’t harm you or if one is good, two, three, or four must be even better. They mix them with other pills, this new red bull craze or alcohol. How else can we spell disaster?

We need to follow those commercials with the side effects, liver failure, addictions and death statistics that these pills lead to. Get the facts! Please read these facts:

The FDA has admitted that Opioids such as Oxycondone, Morphine, Methadone and Fentanyl are a major public health crisis for  addiction, misuse, abuse, overdose and death. Very widely used for Fibromyalgia, arthritis, cancer, dental and all kinds of pain. Largely sold as a street drug and very addicting.

From their own website

http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/

Opioids are at the center of a major public health crisis of:

– addiction

– misuse

– abuse

– overdose

– death

FDA is taking action to protect patients from serious harm due to these drugs.  This action represents a careful balance between continued access to these necessary medications and stronger measures to reduce their risks.

On April 7, 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned the public about the use of over-the-counter (OTC) products containing benzocaine, an ingredient used to reduce pain in the mouth and gums. Benzocaine use may cause a rare, but serious condition where the amount of oxygen that can be carried through the blood stream is greatly reduced.

The problem with treating the symptoms of Fibromyalgia is that is it not addressing the root cause of the problem. How do you know we aren’t making things worse by the medication or pain killers if we don’t know the cause? What if the drugs they are using are depleting a chemical or damaging neurotransmitters?

Putting all these chemicals in your body has to be doing something. The proof is starting to show that some drugs are causing organ damage, cancer, side effects, death and illnesses. It is probably a matter of time before they find out Fibromyalgia is caused from some immunization, birth control, prescription, food additive or who knows what.

The treatments that are available haven’t been successful for me or from the sounds of hundreds of other women, they are still in the same pain. They try one drug and move on to the next in a desperate attempt to get rid of the pain.

I prefer they work on getting to the root of the problem, not make another drug to mask it. Only to find years later that the drug causes liver or kidney damage. How many of these drugs have proven to cure anything? If heart pills cured heart disease they wouldn’t need to still be taking the drugs. They aren’t getting to the cause of heart disease, only taking care of the symptoms.

I think the best approach we could take would be to start eliminating some of these toxic chemicals that we have been exposed to through medication, pesticides, foods, GMO foods and everyday health care products. The best place to start is demanding they quite allowing these toxins into our food and health care product chain!

No matter what chronic illness you have or even if you are healthy, they will eventually affect you in some way. Why else do we have so many diseases and sick people these days? What about the premature aging, obesity, mental illness, suicides, crime and violence?

We are not a healthy world so lets not pretend it is. We can change though, lets all start today!

I did some research in the Canadian Institute for Health Information. I am trying to avoid being one of these statistics. Keep in mind how much Alzheimer is in seniors, could there be a connection?

Drug Use Among Seniors on Public Drug Programs in Canada, 2002 to 2008 used
data from our National Prescription Drug Utilization Information System Database to
examine the claims of more than one million seniors across six provinces. It found
that nearly two-thirds of seniors were using five or more drug classes in a year, while
one in five were using 10 or more types of prescription drugs.

Could this be why seniors get Alzheimer disease?

Wow, read this, sad but true article.

Worldwide, Students Suffer From Internet ‘Addiction’

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/susan-moeller/technology-internet-addiction_b_845172.html

Susan Moeller

Director, International Center for Media and the Public Agenda

I read a few articles in theglobeandmail.com site about sugar, maple syrup, corn syrup and fructose. Are you confused what is good for you and what isn’t? Your not alone, especially when we are mislead by the media in so many ways. Depending on who does the study varies what kind of results we hear. The best thing to do is get the facts from people who are genuinely concerned about your health, not their pocket book and work on making changes to eliminate as much sugar you can out of your diet. Here is what we do know.

Sugar is:

glucose

fructose (fruit sugar)

lactose (milk)

sucrose (table sugar)

maltose or malts (rice malt and honey)

jam (contains concentrated juice, which is high in fruit sugar)

maple syrup

corn syrup

palm sugar (used in macrobiotic cooking)

the very deceiving organic brown sugar (not all that different from white sugar)

alchohol (even a sugar)

No wonder we get so much of it, it is in everything!

Nancy Appleton, PhD, clinical nutritionist, has compiled a list of 146 reasons on ‘how sugar is ruining your health’ in her book Lick the Sugar Habit. Here are some of the problems that sugar can cause or can contribute to:

* decrease growth hormone (the key to staying youthful and lean)
* feeds cancer
* increases cholesterol
* weaken eyesight
* drowsiness and decreased activity in children
* interfere with the absorption of protein
* food allergies
* diabetes
* eczema in children
* cardiovascular disease
* impair the structure of DNA
* hyperactivity, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and crankiness in children
* reduction in defense against bacterial infection (infectious diseases)
* greatly assists the uncontrolled growth of Candida Albicans (yeast infections)
* osteoporosis

Isn’t that enough to make you think twice about that double, double from Tim Horton’s or Dunkin’s? Mix that coffee with your burger and fries and you get a double whollop of

“Ultimately we have found that fat and caffeinated coffee are impairing the communication between the gut and the pancreas, which could be playing a role in why participants couldn’t clear the sugar from their blood as easily,” said Beaudoin.

Referring to the impact coffee had five hours after consuming the fat drink, Beaudoin added, “This shows that the effects of a high-fat meal can last for hours. What you eat for lunch can impact how your body responds to food later in the day”.

So they have found maple syrup to have similar benefits of superfoods like berries and flax seeds. I personally wouldn’t be drowning your pancakes in it because they say it is healthy for you. Too much of anything isn’t good for you and because it is still a sugar, it can cause all kinds of problems such as diabetes, candida (yeast) overgrowth, heart disease, obesity and on and on. It isn’t the harmless sugar we once thought it to be.

The next study showed that it helped cancer grow. I believe it, through experience, I watched my Mother die of breast cancer. In her last year as the cancer advanced into stage 4, her appetite for sugar continually increased. She used more and more syrup on her pancakes, more brown sugar in her oatmeal and more and more chocolate. The more she ate, the more frail she got. She became a mere shadow of the woman she was. It seemed the more sugar she fed her body, the more it fueled the cancer. It was hard to watch her die, she was a trouper though, she fought for 5 long, hard years. Her father died of lung cancer and neither one like to eat vegetables, ate lots of fish, white flour and dairy products.

Scientists from the University of Rhode Island have discovered Canadian maple syrup may have similar health benefits of superfoods, like berries, tea, red wine and flax seeds. Read the story here:

Fructose can trigger cancer cells to grow faster, study finds

Leslie Beck

Now, a study published last week in the journal Cancer Research adds to the growing controversy over the potential health risks of fructose, a form of sugar added to thousands of foods and soft drinks.

According to researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles, the sweetener triggers pancreatic cancer cells to grow more quickly.

The major sources of fructose in our diet are sucrose (table sugar) and high fructose corn syrup, a sweetener found in soft drinks, fruit drinks, candy, cookies, ketchup, salad dressings, cereal bars, frozen dinners and countless other processed foods.

While it’s widely known that cancer cells use glucose to fuel their growth, last week’s findings were the first to link fructose to cancer growth. The cancer cells grew at fructose concentrations easily attainable in our North American diet and they did so at a similar rate to glucose.

The trouble with fructose is that the body delivers it to the liver, where it can lead to a buildup of fats and contribute to diabetes, heart disease and other health issues. But as Ms. Butler writes, the problem isn’t whether we’re getting our fructose from sugar or corn syrup; it’s that we’re simply consuming too much of it.

The final word? “In high-enough quantities, they’re both poison,” pediatric endocrinologist Robert Lustig of the University of California San Francisco tells Ms. Butler.

***What isn’t in this study is that most corn syrup is that it is made from genetically modified organisms which can cause a host of problems.

It did, however, reveal higher blood triglyceride levels among those who consumed the most sugar. Triglycerides are made in the liver from the foods you eat. A blood triglyceride level higher than 1.7 mmol/L is considered elevated and usually means you eat more calories than you burn or you drink too much alcohol.

So there you pretty much have it. So all the above sugar all contributes to ill health. Where do we go from here? Two sugars that you can use without risking diabetes, heart disease, yeast infection and all the above. The herb Stevia and Xylitol have been proven to be safe and work great together.
