(Natural News) President Trump announced last year that the opioid epidemic was a “public health emergency” and called for the medical community to look for alternative therapies to battle the growing crisis. The President cited the most recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics which places drug overdose as the leading cause of injury death in the United States, outnumbering both gun-related deaths and traffic crashes. It is estimated that 175 people die each day in our country because of a drug overdose.

The class of drugs most commonly being abused is painkillers or opioid analgesics prescribed to treat chronic pain. Of those who are given these drugs, medical professionals have stated that the elderly (or those 65-years-old and older) are the most at risk of overdosing. Doctors have warned that while older Americans represent only 14 percent of the total population, they comprise 30 percent of all those who use opioids.

This has prompted several health institutions to look for better and more natural ways to treat chronic pain.

A new study conducted by researchers from the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev(BGU) and the Cannabis Clinical Research Institute at Soroka University Medical Center concluded that medical cannabis could be the answer. Authors of the study observed around 3,000 elderly patients suffering from chronic pain brought about by various conditions including cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis, among other things. More than 60 percent of patients were prescribed medical cannabis to alleviate their pain.

The researchers saw that in only six months, 93 percent of patients reported a significant reduction in the amount of pain they felt. Moreover, 60 percent of the participants claimed that their quality of life was raised from “bad” or “very bad” to “good” or “very good” within the same time period. Seventy percent likewise reported moderate improvement in their condition.

More importantly, 18 percent of all participants lessened, or completely stopped, their prescription to their opioid analgesics.

It was concluded that medical cannabis therapy can be a safe and effective treatment for chronic pain and can serve as a way to lessen the dependence people may develop to prescription painkillers. (Related: A look at the evolving relationship surrounding medical marijuana vs. opioid deaths.)

Understanding medical marijuana

Medical cannabis is still considered to be a Schedule I drug by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) which covers a wide range of substances deemed to have no currently accepted medical use. Despite that, the drug has been reported to offer a series of health benefits — not least of which is alleviating certain age-related ailments including chronic pain.

Observational studies have been difficult to conduct, with the DEA’s pressure to limit its use in the public.

As explained by Dr. Kenneth Mukamal, associate professor of medicine at Harvard-affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center: “Unfortunately, there are almost no uses of medical marijuana that have been subjected to the kind of rigorous testing you’d want for a pharmaceutical. This does not mean that it has no benefits, but only that the lack of human studies prevents us from being sure if medical marijuana can really help.”

Even so, countless number of patients have reported the efficacy of medical cannabis in reducing certain symptoms, especially those related to anxiety, pain, stress, and sleeping disorders. (Click to Source)

Incredibly disturbing animation reveals how vaccines are really made… WARNING: this will turn your stomach

vaccine-e1490289003447

(Natural News) Isn’t it interesting how so many people scrutinize the ingredients in the groceries they buy, yet they allow themselves to be injected with vaccines without having any clue what ingredients they contain?

Vaccines are deliberately made with all sorts of bizarre ingredients, the CDC confirms. These ingredients include toxic heavy metals, animal blood components, human fetal tissue, monkey kidney cells, inflammatory chemicals that harm nerve cells, chemical preservatives, taste-enhancing chemicals (like MSG) and much more.

3 Polio Facts That The CDC Wishes You Didn’T Know

polio

Many people I talk to agree that the current CDC vaccination schedule is appalling. These same people commonly acknowledge that vaccines for HPV or the flu are ineffective and cause much more harm than good.

However, many of these seemingly intelligent people fall into the “But, Polio” crowd.

Despite evidence that polio was on the decline long before the introduction of the vaccine, and that sanitation and plumbing improvements are likely the reason for the decline of the disease as opposed to a carcinogenic syringe filled with neurotoxins and environmental pesticides, far too many people still hail the polio vaccine as one of the greatest accomplishments of 20th century medicine.

If you are one of those people who has ever stated“but, what about polio?”, this is for you.

1. The first polio vaccine was developed by Dr. Jonas Salk. Human experiments using this vaccine were conducted purposely on orphans in government/church run institutions because they were vulnerable and didn’t require parental consent signatures, as they had no parents.

The vaccine was “declared safe” (as they always are), but tragically, that vaccine gave 40,000 orphans polio and permanently paralyzed hundreds of others. At least 10 children died as a result of vaccine-induced polio. All injuries and deaths were under-reported of course by the same authorities who orchestrated the atrocity. (This is known as The Cutter Incident.)

“In retrospect, a good deal of the blame for the vaccine snafu also went to the National Foundation (for Infantile Paralysis), which, with years of publicity, had built up the danger of polio out of all proportion to its actual incidence, and had rushed into vaccinations this year with patently insufficient preparation.” ~Time Magazine: Monday, May 30, 1955 (Click to Article)

Despite getting the vaccine, this 8 year old relies on prosthetic limbs after losing his legs to meningitis

vaccines-poison

(NaturalNews) If vaccines are really responsible for eradicating communicable disease as is often claimed, then why did eight-year-old Kye Vincent lose his legs and left hand? This is the poignant question some are asking after reports of Kye’s successful prosthesis went public, indicating that, despite young Kye’s compliance with childhood vaccine requirements, he still contractedmeningococcal septicaemia, more commonly known as meningitis.

According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail Online, Kye developed meningitis earlier this year, even though he had earlier received a vaccination for meningitis as recommended by public health authorities. The disease ravaged the poor boy’s body, forcing his doctors to put him into an induced coma to increase his chances of survival. Kye survived, but the deadly bacteria took both of his legs and one of his hands, all of which had to be removed.

It was a terrible time for young Kye and his family, as there were deep concerns that the boy might ultimately lose his life. Fortunately he didn’t, and his family is deeply grateful that not only did Kye live, but he was also able to get the implants he needed to allow him to walk and use both of his hands.

“Kye is the bravest person I know,” his mother Cheryl told the media. “There were times when we thought we’d lose him, but he’s a fighter and he’s not letting his disability hold him back. I’m just glad I noticed the signs and called the ambulance when I did. If I’d left it any longer, he might not be here today.” (Click to Article)

The shocking ingredients in flu vaccines

flu-vaccine-injection-needle-arm-skin

(NaturalNews) The push for widespread flu vaccination is something that happens year after year. In fact, it seems as though the mainstream medical community is becoming even more demanding and aggressive about their vaccination agenda than ever before.

Just this past September, the CDC updated their flu vaccination guidelines so they could encourage people with egg allergies to get the flu vaccine. As many people are aware, in the past having an egg allergy exempted you from having to get the vaccine because this particular shot contains traces of eggs. Seems perfectly reasonable and logical, doesn’t it? Well, they’re throwing logic out the window with their new suggestions.

People with minor allergic reactions, like hives, are called upon to be vaccinated as usual, at any location of their choosing. For those with more severe reactions – like anaphylactic shock, which can kill you – it is suggested that they get vaccinated at their doctor’s office, a hospital or other medical facility. That way, when the person’s throat closes up, hopefully someone will be able to save their life. That seems perfectly reasonable to ask someone to do, don’t you think?

Apparently having a life-threatening food allergy is no longer enough to allow people to be remiss in their civic duty to be injected with harmful substances. (Click to Article)

Former Salesman For Vaccine Maker Merck Would Never Vaccinate His Kids

“If you believe what you are told by the AMA and the CDC and your doctor, you’re not doing enough research.” Those are Scott Cooper’s own words. The former Merck salesman says that vaccines are NOT safe and are NOT effective and pleads with the public to do more research.

So then why, when people who have inside knowledge and nothing to gain, tell us these things do we not listen? Creating friction and yourself between Pharmaceutical companies is not a comforting experience, nor is it the path to making more money in life. Pharma has all the money, all the opportunity and it would be a much easier path to just stay quiet. But that’s not what’s happening anymore. People do have a conscience. People are speaking out even when it isn’t beneficial to them personally. (Click to Article)

 

Your body is owned by the government: Hillary Clinton supports mandatory vaccines

editorial-use-hillary-clinton-face

(NaturalNews) As the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announces their new plan to detain individuals and medicate them against their will, the government is stating very clearly: your body isn’t yours. Individual rights no longer exist. You are our subject.

This is the antithesis of freedom, a mockery of personal liberty, and an open invitation for abuse.

A Clinton CDC would initiate a witch hunt against those who seek health freedom and natural immunity

Make no mistake about it. These new CDC police state powers, under a Hillary Clinton presidency, would be procured, endorsed, and set into motion. This is because Clinton believes in mandatory vaccinations. If Clinton takes control of the CDC, then there will be a covert war against individuals who seek freedom from the medical system.

Those who do not comply with rigorous CDC vaccine schedules will be tracked down as if they are vector of disease, a menace to society. Those who rely on their own immune system to ward off illness will be stalked and hunted down like they are witches. Just like in Nazi Germany, the officers will just do their jobs and follow CDC orders.

A Hillary Clinton presidency will inevitably unleash a culture of forced healthcare. We’ve already seen this kind of force initiated with the passage of the Affordable Care Act, which now coerces individuals to pay into the health insurance industry or face erroneous fines for failing to comply. A Hillary Clinton presidency would further depart from individual liberty, taking away a person’s right to treat themselves how they best see fit.

A Hillary Clinton presidency will unleash a culture of authoritarian vaccine pushers who suddenly gain the so-called authority to arrest people and have them forcibly vaccinated. A preview of this atrocity is already being carried out on children. Governments, hospital authorities, and vaccine pushing pediatricians’ already try to project authority over parents, using the “Child Protective Services” to kidnap children from parents who may simply want a second medical opinion for their child. This is why it’s important to stay armed and trained in self defense. It’s no coincidence that Clinton advocates for government control over your body and government control over firearms, drastically limiting your rights to self defense. (Click to Article)

Chemtrail Blanketing To Be Used As Zika Warfare Is Known To Cause Autism

miamispray

Florida’s Zika scare has reached new heights, literally. Florida now intends to fight Zika in the air by mass spraying communities in and around the Miami area. This means if you live near Miami, the buzzing you hear from above you is likely the presence of falling insecticides. According toReuters, the chemtrail zone is a 10-mile area.

Officials have warned pregnant women to stay away from parts of South Florida. Residents have been living in complete fear ever since the warnings of an “outbreak” were made public. Businesses are suffering. And now, to make things worse, people and their children will be exposed to poisons and carcinogens from above. Here are actual shots that residents saw above them last night. (Click to Article)

Severe flu season straining the resources of ERs around the country

flu-season5_0

With more than half of U.S. states experiencing high levels of flu-like illness — and flu activity continuing to rise, ERs across the country are seeing a surge in business — and some are struggling to keep up.

Currently, 29 states and New York City are reporting high levels of influenza-like-illness (ILI), and another nine states are reporting moderate levels of ILI. This season, 18 children have died from flu-associated deaths.

This year’s predominant flu (76 percent) is very similar to a type that caused a severe season in 2003-2004, when the flu shot wasn’t a good match and there were more than 40,000 associated deaths, said Dr. Marc Siegel, a member of the Fox News Medical A Team.

Illinois has been hit the hardest, according to the Illinois Department of Health; and 11 Chicago-area hospitals are now on bypass status, meaning they are so swamped with flu patients, they have to turn sick people away.

Melaney Arnold, spokeswoman for the Illinois Dept. of Health, said nearly 150 people have been admitted to intensive care units with the flu this season, and five have died.

Northwestern Medical Center in Chicago is one example of a hospital on bypass status. So if you’re in an ambulance because you have the flu, this hospital will have to turn you away. That doesn’t mean people can’t walk in there and still get treatment if they’re OK to do so, but it’s going to be a long wait.

The Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, Ill., reported that its emergency room has up to a three-hour wait, and a Good Samaritan doctor described the situation as “chaotic.”

“It’s not like you can just see them and out the door they go. They’re here for a while unfortunately, getting treatments,” said Dr. Tom Mullin of Good Samaritan. “Most of them we can fortunately discharge them home and treat them as an outpatient. But, it’s wreaking havoc on every emergency department in the city and the suburbs, I’ll tell you that.”

Doctors are advising patients to take anti-virals, like Tamiflu, as soon as symptoms start. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, fatigue, nasal congestion and muscle aches.

According to the CDC, it is likely the increased flu activity will continue for a while.  Based on the last 10 flu seasons, ILI remained at or above baseline for about 12 weeks – and up to 16 weeks during the 2005-2006 season. ILI remained above baseline for 19 weeks during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.

Mary Anderson, infection control manager at Edward Hospital in Chicago, said the hospital normally sees an average of 200 cases per season. But as of last week the hospital already has seen more than 260 confirmed cases.

In Rockville, Md., emergency room visits are up 20 to 50 percent, according to Dr. Michael Kerr, chief of staff and chairman of the department of Emergency Medicine at Medstar Montgomery Medical Center in Olney, according to wusa9.com. Kerr said the problem is area-wide, and extra doctors and nurses are on-hand to deal with swamped waiting rooms.

In Pennsylvania, Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest has set up a ‘flu tent’ to treat the overwhelming amount of patients coming through, according to nbcphiladelphia.com.

Terry Burger, hospital director of infection control at Lehigh, said, “If we can remove them from the main ED and put them in environment where everyone is masked and everyone can be protected, it’s safer for them and certainly safer for the staff.”
