Lately, I've been doing some in depth research regarding natural ways to heal the body while boosting the immune system. The American culture has taken the processed way to treat and heal the body's immune system. Sad to say, the process of healing could be expedited with a more organic way of treatment. Pharmaceutical sales for 2016 made an estimated $450 billion and OTC (over the counter) medication brought in a estimated $34 million. I understand that's how the working class continue to stay in labor but, what if you knew you could save yourself hundreds of dollars per year by going natural? Let's be honest, majority of the pharmaceutical and OTC medication has been processed and diluted with synthetics. This is what causes allergic reactions to certain medications or our bodies become immune to the forms of treatment. Having a natural allergic reaction to herbs is very understandable, by doing research and finding other alternatives that comes directly from the earth. The FDA has to approve certain medications as a form of treatment before it can be sold on the market for consumers to purchase. Doesn't that tell you something? There are side affects to most if not all man made pharmaceutical drugs and they are revealed last once you have been convinced that the medication will help treat your form of illness. Drugs Involved in U.S. Overdose Deaths* - Among the more than 64,000 drug overdose deaths estimated in 2016, the sharpest increase occurred among deaths related to fentanyl and fentanyl analogs (synthetic opioids) with over 20,000 overdose deaths.
