Natural Products That Can Beat Drugs


Monday, 05 October 2020 12:55 PM EDT

Pharmaceutical drugs have very little, if any, ability to prevent disease, whereas many natural products have very powerful preventive properties. 

Most diseases can be prevented, or their risk can be greatly reduced, by consuming large amounts of nutrient-dense vegetables and some selected fruits. However, pharmaceutical drugs are designed to treat diseases once they have become full-blown. Worse still, most drugs do not address the cause of the disease, but only treat symptoms.

Dr. Russell L. Blaylock writes in his book, “Dr. Blaylock’sPrescriptions for Natural Health:” “I often hear alternative health proponents say that headaches are not caused by a lack of ibuprofen and heart failure is not caused by a lack of beta-blockers. Nevertheless, the person with a headache is thankful that the medication provides relief, and the person with heart failure is grateful for the beneficial effects of beta-blockers. But many plant extracts also treat symptoms.”

Coronary Heart Disease: 5 Tips to Reduce Your Risk

As an example, hawthorn contains chemicals that stimulate the heart muscle to contract with more effective force, just like certain heart drugs, but it also stimulates dilation of blood vessels to improve blood flow. And the herb does these things with very few adverse effects, whereas cardiac drugs can have a number of severe, often deadly, side effects. 

Unlike the cardiac drugs, hawthorn can also reduce inflammatory factors in the blood that actually cause heart failure, thereby correcting a major cause of the disease. Hawthorn’s other “side effects” are mostly beneficial, such as protecting the brain, decreasing risk of cancer, and reducing harmful overreaction of the immune system.

We see this with a number of natural compounds. Some examples: 

Curcumin is a brain protectant that also reduces inflammation in other areas of the body, has antibacterial and antiviral effects, reduces atherosclerosis, protects against radiation damage, improves cellular energy production, is a potent antioxidant, and is a powerful anti-cancer agent. 

More Than 50% of Older Americans Fail to Get Enough Magnesium

Magnesium is critical for the operation of hundreds of enzymes in our bodies, is anti-inflammatory, increases levels of our internal antioxidants, reduces blood clots, opposes allergies, reduces autoimmune inflammation, stimulates cellular energy production, protects the heart muscle, reduces atherosclerosis, and protects the brain. No pharmaceutical drug can say the same. Most drug side effects are quite harmful and some are deadly.

As always, check with you physician before stopping or replacing any drug and using these natural products.
