Keep people sick is the business for the pharmaceutical industry

The pharmaceutical market exceeds profits from arms sales or telecommunications. For every dollar invested in making a medicine, you get a thousand of profit.

Globalization has allowed to extend their power by which they decide which diseases and which patients deserve cure. 90% of the budget dedicated by pharmaceutical companies for the research and development of new medicines is destined to diseases that suffer 10% of the world population
The pharmaceutical industry has turned the disease into a business. Globalization has allowed to extend their power by which they decide which diseases and which patients deserve cure. 90% of the budget dedicated by the pharmaceutical companies for the research and development of new medicines is destined to diseases that suffer 10% of the world population (cancer, osteoarthritis, diabetes, lipid disorders, hypertension, etc).

These companies seek to achieve fabulous profits, resorting to often questionable strategies that thanks to their power usually enjoy great impunity, crushing smaller competitors and pressing governments. The prices they set are very high, which makes them inaccessible to a large part of the world population, while some of their products damage the health of the sick.

Among the main strategies used today by the pharmaceutical industry to obtain its billion-dollar profits, it should be highlighted:

1. They make a great propaganda pressure on the medicines they manufacture, even if they are not useful and can be harmful to health.

2. They exploit to the maximum the medicines in the form of monopoly and in abusive conditions that do not take into account the objective needs of the patients nor their purchasing power

3. Reduce research on diseases that mainly affect poor countries, because they are not profitable, while concentrating on the problems of populations with high purchasing power, even when they are not diseases (such as the proliferation of “medicines”). “Anti-aging”

4. They force national and international legislations to favor their interests, even at the expense of the health and lives of millions of people

STRATEGIES TO INCREASE THE SALE OF MEDICINES

In order to face the decrease of profits that the reduction of the pharmaceutical cost on the part of the governments supposes, the laboratories are putting in practice different measures:

1. Redefine and increase the prevalence of certain diseases: There are reports that indicate that female sexual dysfunction reaches 43% of the total.

2. Promote the treatment of mild or medium-serious problems as signs of more serious illnesses: Irritable bowel syndrome or anxiety disorders.

3. Transform health risks into diseases: Osteoporosis or testosterone deficiency syndrome.

4. Stimulate concerns about future diseases in healthy populations. Osteopenia or Alzheimer’s.

5. Convert personal and social problems into diagnosable health disorders and in need of treatment: Turn shyness into social phobia.

6. Consider certain diseases as epidemics of extraordinary spread and lethality: Influenza A which was a milder flu than the seasonal one promoted the application of strict protocols (with the use of suits and isolation areas, the use of antivirals such as Tamiflu efficacy unproven and mass promotion of the vaccine).

Until recently, it was common for large pharmaceutical companies to pay bribes to doctors to prescribe their medications, although it is a practice that is generally frowned upon and in many places is illegal. With the increase in controls over the prescribing doctors, the laboratories are developing strategies to support economically, organize congresses and meetings with the Sick Organizations to seek support from them and pressure governments to finance certain drugs, although not your need is justified or have adverse effects.

if you have been diagnosed with a chronic disease and the doctor only treats the symptoms and does not look for the cause of the disease, natural medicine can be a great alternative for you.

Amazing benefits of Maca

Maca is a source of fibers, proteins, essential amino acids, also the vitamins of the B complex (B1, B2, B6 ..), it has minerals such as calcium, iron and phosphorus among several others that are essential for the body. Due to these components and properties of maca, we can identify it as a very important source of health.

How to consume maca?
Eating powdered maca may be more useful if we need to better control the dose we take, the idea is to start with less dose and try their effects, but as we have already mentioned, consultation with a specialist is appropriate. We should also take it always in the morning.

It is best to consume the maca root with a meal, especially in the stages when your body is only getting used to supplements like maca. No matter what mode of consumption you decide to use, maca powder or maca pills (maca capsules), start with small doses if it is new in your body and gradually increase it.

There are people who do not care about the taste of maca powder that approximates a nutty flavor, so you can add it to yogurt, juice, smoothie or salad.

Many of its benefits can be noticed immediately, however if we want it to have more profound effects (as an endocrine regulator for example) it is recommended to take it at least three months and then assess it together with a specialist. Keep in mind that it has prolonged effects even after you stop taking it

Before starting to use natural supplements or make any important changes in our diet and eating habits is important to consult a specialist to guide us to take the best decision. In this case we must be alert in cases of hypertension without control, and control the dose a lot in cases of over excitation of the immune system.
