Big Pharma Interrupted

Big Pharma Interrupted  –  their profits are threatened by whole plant based cannabis medicine. The pharmaceutical industry is against legalizing the plant on the basis that it fails to protect the safety of children.  If that concern had a miniscule of truth to it, the industry would NOT prescribe their harmful psychotropic drugs to children.

The largest pharmaceutical market in the world is the U.S. – representing 35% of the global market.  Those states that have adopted a medical cannabis policy are witnessing a significant drop in prescription drugs including those for pain and for symptoms associated with chemotherapy – two very lucrative money making conditions for Big Pharma).

The pharmaceutical industry is the largest industry raking in massive amounts in revenues at the expense of people suffering from acute health challenges to life threatening diseases.  In fact, the Washington Post published specific results for reduced prescriptions including painkillers, anxiety, nausea, psychosis, sleep disorders and depression  in those states with a medical marijuana law.

What is the pharmaceutical industry doing about a plant that can reduce their revenues by at least $4 billion annually?  This industry is spending an obscene amount of money to discredit this plant as harmful, untested, dangerous and of no use, unless it is of pharmaceutical grade.

Just Say NO to prescription drugs!

What is an Anxiety Attack?

An anxiety attack is also referred to as a “panic attack” and can be brought on by real or imagined fear, often described as excessive fear.  An anxiety attack, can be characterized as having the following:

  • uncontrollable crying
  • shortness of breath
  • shaking
  • a rapid heartbeat
  • an overall out of control feeling of dread.

Unfortunately, it is said that these attacks are more common in women than in men. It is also important to note that these attacks are more often than not, usually related to some psychological factor. For example, psychological factors that can instigate a panic or anxiety attack includes:

  • work-related stress
  • family related stress
  • too much changes in your life all at once
  • anything that can make you feel overwhelmed is liable to trigger an attack.

In addition to psychological factors, other factors that can bring on an attack include the following:

  • stimulants such as coffee and sugar
  • any foods that you are allergic to
  • chemical food additives such as MSG, aspartame and even salt

OK, so what can we do about panic attacks in order to avoid them in the future, or at least alleviate their severity?
