I’m a Holistic Nutritionist student.
Recently during an assignment I was asked to familiarize myself with the epidemic of proton pump inhibitor ( PPI ) use and statin drugs.
Specifically to learn to recognize the side effects; soon I’ll learn how to help my clients no longer need their drugs at all. An honor I Greatly look forward to.
Anyways, I thought I’d share my lesson summary here with you because it’s such a valuable comparison.
How do PPI’s and statins stack up against real healing, and more specifically in this post, hemp-derived Cannabidiol ( CBD )?
Yikes. And that’s not all. These are the current medically-touted solutions to issues with acid production? Good thing gut damage and mitochondrial dysfunction isn’t the only route available…let’s continue.
According to a secondary search, I found that in the year 2017 the total spent on PPIs was $9.5 Billion, and in 2012 Nexium alone brought in a total of $6 Billion. Wowza. Scary numbers right there.
In addition, according to my research the top 5 most common side effects of Statin Drugs are as follows:
Muscle pain and damage
Increased blood sugar levels ( insulin resistance, or, pre-diabetes )
Type 2 diabetes
Neurological side effects
And according to Mercola, about $29 Billion is spent globally on
SatanI mean statin drugs very year, and in 2010 here in the U.S. we made up almost $19 Billion of that all on our own.
This country is in dire need of an army of compassionate and informed holistic healers. Hold onto your hats, World, because here we come.
– Ashley Gregoire
Indeed, a tribe of healers is being raised up. Out of pure necessity. We come armed with compassion, truth, and CBD oil to boot.
What’s that, you ask?
Can hemp-derived CBD oil help combat acid reflux and high cholesterol?
Absolutely, according to my ongoing research.
The CBD industry may threaten to cut right through statin drug profits…but with no side effects, wouldn’t you take that trade off any day?
I know I would. I have. Look out
Harma I mean Pharma; we’re coming back to nature for our solutions now. You are no longer the sole provider.
Certain drugs are beneficial or necessary for some individuals at some times; but certainly not all. And certainly not most of the time for most people, as it is within the healthcare model today.
As always I’ll end by saying this: you are free to be healthy. You may need to invest in unlearning some things along the way.
If you can shed the fear-based conditioning that says drugs will make you healthy, and anything else is quackery, you’ll be well on your way my friend.
Hugs, health, and a sense of empowerment,
