The Drug Body Count Rises – Dr. Carolyn Dean MD ND

The Drug Body Count Rises

June 3, 2017

While a few doctors, mostly in university or large clinic settings, demand “scientific” evidence to prove that ReMag is as good as I say it is, patients on scientifically researched prescribed meds and OTC meds are dropping like flies! Doctors have been told to treat nutrients as if they were drugs and don’t use their commonsense to see that magnesium is a food that is absent from out diet and needs to be replaced.

When it comes to drug side effects, doctors are woefully ignorant of the possible harmful interaction between and among medications. Drugs combinations are never tested in the lab or in clinical trails. You do the testing and you are the experiment when you swallow a handful of pills, and you are the one that suffers the consequences. That’s what happened just this week to Tiger Woods and musician Chris Cornell.

Tiger Woods was arrested for DUI behavior while driving his car – but was negative on breathalyzer testing. Woods, who has had 16 major injuries and surgeries as documented by ESPN was recovering from his 4th back surgery for spinal fusion April 2017. He told the police that he was taking three drugs, Soloxex, Vicodin, and Torix.

Soloxex doesn’t come up on a Google search and Torix is only available in the UK and Australia. A drug similar to Torix called Vioxx was pulled from the market 13 years ago for causing upwards of 139,000 serious heart attacks and deaths. Tiger Woods said he took that drug up until a year ago.

Vicodin is a whole different story. It’s an opiate pain killer – think opium! There is a huge scandal exploding right now about the over prescribing of opiate pain killers by medical doctors leading to addiction and killing more people than heroin and cocaine.

When doctors don’t use IV magnesium during surgery and when they don’t prescribe therapeutic levels of non laxative magnesium (think ReMag) after surgery, people don’t heal and they get addicted to pain medications with horrible side effects up to and including death.

Vicodin is a 2-drug combination of hydrocodone/acetaminophen, so Tiger Woods was actually taking 4 medications for his chronic pain.

The common side effects of Vicodin include: The common side effects of Vicodin include: lightheadedness, dizziness, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, drowsiness, constipation, headache, mood changes, blurred vision, ringing in your ears, dry mouth, difficulty urinating.

Also, there may have been an additive effect of his symptoms with the other two medications. We know that Vicodin may interact with other narcotic pain medications, sedatives, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, other medicines that can make you sleepy or slow your breathing.

Woods appeared lightheaded, dizzy, drowsy, and “moody” in the police videos of his breathalyzer test; these are all side effects of Vicodin.

The media is in a frenzy about the Tiger Woods story and many factions are using it as a vehicle to critique opiate pain medication side effects, to recommend that people not drive when they are taking opiates, and to speak out about the ineffectiveness of spinal fusion. Of course I’m using it to point out that Tiger Woods is in Total Body Meltdown and needs to be on the Total Body ReSet program!

Musician Chris Cornell meds also seemed to be for pain with a psychological overlay. However, the coroner’s report said that Cornell hung himself, he did not die of a drug overdose. But commonsense says that a cocktail of his drugs likely drove him to suicide. Butalbital is a barbiturate for sleep and can be prescribed with pain meds. Naloxone (Narcan) is used to block the effects of opiate drugs. Perhaps he was addicted to drugs that he was trying to get off. Pseudoephedrine is a nasal decongestant but also can be used as a simulant. Lorazepam (Ativan) is an antianxiety medication. I guess you could say that Cornell was on uppers and downers.

If you simply just scan your memory or the Internet for prominent suicides, sudden deaths, school shootings and other homicides and scratch beneath the surface, you will come up with a history of prescription medication use among the persons involved. Most people see this pattern but even though the body count keeps rising, nothing will be done about it unless, you, as an individual take charge of your own body and don’t allow yourself to get into the trap of taking drugs.

Meanwhile doctors ignore these horrific side effects, which I document in my Death by Modern Medicine book and governments support mandatory vaccinations and mandatory well child medical examinations, which puts medical labels on children at a very young age.

Please take charge of your own health since the disease-care system seems to have abandoned us!
