The system of prescriptions plays a vital role in the regulation of medicine, particularly of medications that can cause serious harm when not taken as instructed by a physician. A person who abuses prescription painkillers (and other kinds of drugs as well) can seriously harm their health — or in a worst-case scenario, die. What’s more worrying is the recent data published by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, a department of the National Institutes of Health.

According to data collected by the National Institute on Drug Abuse from 2001 until 2014, there was a shocking three-fold increase (exactly 2.8 times) in the number of deaths attributed to the overdose of prescription drugs. There were also increases in overdoses from controlled substances. Here are the stats: [1]

– Deaths from Opioid Pain Relievers: 3.4-fold increase from 2001 to 2014.
– Deaths from Benzodiazepenes: 5-fold increase from 2001 to 2014.
– Deaths from Cocaine: 42-percent increase
– Deaths from Heroin: 6-fold increase

The graphs published on the NIH website show a continuous upward trend, leading to as much as a 6-fold increase in the number of deaths due to drugs. From deaths of 5,000 annually attributed to drug overdose to close to 30,000 deaths annually by 2014 — this signifies a problem that has continued to grow in recent years, and appears set to continue to grow in the future.

A report by the CDC also showed similar trends in mortality, wherein mortality rates for eight out of ten leading causes of death went up — reducing the nation’s life expectancy, which has not been seen in twenty years. [2]

While painkillers can take away serious pain when taken as prescribed, they can also do a world of harm when abused. So instead of turning toward ongoing or increased amounts of pills to manage your pain, there are a lot of natural methods you might wish to investigate instead. Herbs like chamomile, chili, and ginger have all been demonstrated to benefit pain, and even fever and inflammation. Relaxation techniques like meditation, yoga, and rhythmic exercise can also be effective in managing pain.

A study in 2012 by Busch, et. al. found that deep breathing exercises were able to modulate pain control and perception, causing an increase in detection and threshold levels. Jeitler, et. al. in a recent 2015 study concluded that a special kind of meditation called “Jyoti Meditation” was able to assist with the management of chronic neck pain through pain reduction and improved coping.

Because of the threat posed by overdosing on prescription pain killers, going natural when it comes to pain management maybe a better option that won’t put your health at risk. [3][4]

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:


Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.
