The Latest on Harmful Drug-Supplement Interactions

At Doctors Health Press, we enthusiastically promote natural medicine. But, there are important health considerations when it comes to how drugs and supplements can interact, as they sometimes do so dangerously. A new study, which looked extensively at the subject, offers a clear and accurate picture of what drugs and supplements should never be combined. Continue reading

Big Pharma’s Profiteering Has Reached the Breaking Point: 45 percent of Americans Can No Longer Afford Prescriptions

Drug companies have gotten so greedy, and the American public so financially distressed, that nearly half of all Americans under the age of 65 who normally take prescription drugs are no longer doing so because they allegedly cannot afford it. This is according to a new report compiled by the Consumer Reports National Research Center (CRNRC), Continue reading

Read This Before You Take That Arthritis Drug

opiodOpioids have been around a long time. The opium poppy has been used for its therapeutic benefits almost as long as humans have been around. Opioids have one special ability: to block pain. They do this by decreasing both the perception of, and our reaction to, pain. Opioids also have the ability to increase pain tolerance.

As many as four million Americans may be taking opioids regularly to manage their pain. Most of these people are suffering from either low back pain or arthritis. Drugs like “Vicodin,” tramadol and “Darvocet” all purport to help ease Continue reading

BEYOND ANTIBIOTICS

Beyond Antibiotics is the title of a book by two medical doctors, Keith Sehnert, MD and Lendon Smith, MD.  These gutsy authors challenge one of the most sacred cows of conventional medicine, the widespread use of antibiotics.  I have found antibiotics are very rarely needed, and most often they are very harmful.  I have drawn information from the book to write this article.

Doctors prescribe antibiotics at what can only be termed an incredible rate.  According to several studies done Continue reading

How to Detox Aluminum and why it’s Necessary

We are in the “Age of Aluminum”, this according to a lecture by Dr. Chris Exley, PhD at a January 2011 vaccine safety conference in Jamaica. A common expression among those who deflect aluminum’s toxicity issues is that aluminum is prominent throughout the earth’s crust. What they fail to mention is that aluminum (Al) wasn’t widely bioavailable to humans until the latter part of the 19th Century when it began to be mined for creating metals and medicines.

Now we have aluminum appearing in cookware, wrapping foils, beverage and food containers, underarm deodorants, tobacco, over the counter (OTC) and prescribed medicines, and as adjuvants in vaccines. Al is highly reactive with other chemicals and creates antigens to stimulate immune system antibody responses in vaccines. But the mechanics of these reactions are not understood by Big Pharma.

Remaining Healthy in a Toxic World

Life in a toxic world has grown complex: Our cosmetics, food, water and air are all filled with contaminants that inflame our immune systems and cause serious health issues. Limiting your exposure to these chemicals and cleansing them from your body is essential for better health.

Scientists have come up with various, complicated names for the distasteful pollutants that threaten our health. Xenobiotics are what they call one class of unnatural chemicals that enter the body through the skin, lungs and digestion and set off troublesome immune reactions. These substances include prescription medications, dioxins, PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and many other synthetic molecules Continue reading
