Freedom from Big Pharma

You may begin by asking the question, "what is Freedom from Big Pharma?"
As a pharmacist who is now liberated from the Big Pharma chains, I am happy to share my thoughts and expertise to help you live in liberation too. Let’s dive into how to live free from Big Pharma.
For those who read my chapter in The Next Wave is Brave, you know the detailed story of what I saw take place behind the pharmacy counter. To give a brief background, I witnessed many providers over prescribing and missing the opportunity to help the individual discover the root cause of their health concern.
This process did not begin with the provider, it stems back into the Big Pharma agenda.
In order to understand, we need to step back in time. In 1910, The Rockefeller Foundation and The Carnegie Foundation paid a gentleman, Abraham Flexner, to deliver a report to Congress where our present-day medical establishment ideas originated from.
Through this report, “Rockefeller Medicine” emerged and the control over the medical education system began. Natural remedies were now being phased out and pharmaceuticals became the new treatment approach and standard. Holistic institutions were no longer being funded and unable to continue, while the modern medicine institutions were receiving not only funding, but accreditation as well. There became a rise in health conditions through the years, for example heart issues, cancer, and more illness. These modern medicines were intended to eliminate these issues, not increase them. Why were they on the rise?
Follow the money trail. The foundations listed above had a stake in the new modern medicine of pharmaceuticals. Any other form of successful treatment was a threat to their new industry. With the monopoly on all areas, media, education, and now medical, these individuals gained control and had complete power. To these financial elitists, a patient cured was a profit lost.
Today, individuals enter the medical field with the intention of helping people live in optimal health and wellness. But the education one receives, believes as truth, and delivers to their patients - unaware of any alternative - sometimes causes more harm than good. It’s time we break free from this harmful cycle.
Freedom from Big Pharma begins with each individual seeing this cycle for what it is and saying no more. If you are wondering about your prescribed medications, have a question about alternative treatment options, looking to improve your wellness, then you have come to the right place.
