How a Society Dependent on Medications Affects You

Posted on Jul 29, 2016


Prescription PillsSeven hundred eighty-three thousand nine hundred and thirty-six or written out 783,936. That’s quite an overwhelming number if you think about it. Not bad if that’s your take home from winning the lottery the night before. Not bad if that’s the value of your house. Not bad if that’s the number of people who follow you on Twitter. But if that’s bad, real bad, when you realize that’s the number of people who die every year from our “health care” system. That’s right. 783,936 husbands, wives, children, and friends in 2003 alone, maybe someone you know. According to the report “Death by Medicine” authored by two PhD’s and three MD’s, it’s scary to think that regulatory agencies go on pretending that alternative health care like chiropractic/supplements/homeopathy are dangerous, yet ignore published statistics showing that government sanctioned medicine is the real hidden hazard. Crazy to conceive and even more mind boggling when questioning why it’s rarely reported on the news/television/internet. Where are the demonstrations? Marches? Undercover TV investigations? In fact, the only thing you hear everyday is the sound of medicine and the pharmaceutical companies carrying on “business as usual”, leading us to our ever-declining health and lifestyles. Check out these numbers:

Adverse drug reactions: 106,000 deaths costing 12 billion dollars
Medical errors: 98,000 deaths costing 2 billion dollars
Unnecessary procedures: 37,136 deaths costing 122 billion dollars

Overwhelming to say the least, but there’s another way! It lies within you! It’s called your nervous system! Listen, for your heart to beat, for your lungs to breathe, for your kidneys to function, you have this amazing power cell surrounded by your spine called your nervous system running you. Taken care of, maintained properly, it can allow you a lifetime of health, wellness, and most importantly freedom! So how do you know if your nervous system is functioning like God intended it to? Don’t wait until you hurt, receive a terminal diagnosis, or feel like a burden to your family, get it checked today! Visit our website at www.lakewoodschiropractic.com or call us at 651-464-0800 and get on the road to not being another statistic! If you currently receive chiropractic care, then tell others…today!

By far the best chiropractor I’ve ever used. They customize a plan just for you and don’t use a one size fits all approach. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!! Thank you!!!

I have been experiencing low back pain for at least 10 rememberable years and decided on a whim to try chiropractic care at Lakewoods. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no expectations that it would work or not but after just my first adjustment I had instant relief for the first time in 10 years. I have since been super impressed with how everything has been explained to me and how my care plan has been formed. The staff are all very kind and have been very helpful as well!
