Drug Industry Responds to Opioid Scourge With Even More Pills

The epidemic of opiate painkiller abuse represents one the greatest failings of modern medicine. A generation of addicts has been created and the result is an unprecedented increase in death rates for middle-aged Caucasians. One might think that the tragic cost of these pharmaceutical interventions would serve as a cautionary tale that would curb the allopathic medical establishment’s addiction to writing prescriptions as a palliative for every ill. Unbelievably, The Washington Post reports that this is not the case.

The opioid epidemic has opened up a new market for even more powerful drugs. These are drugs designed to treat various ills that the prescription drugs are entirely responsible for! This creates a seemingly unbreakable cycle of prescription, side effects caused by the prescription and new prescription to treat the side effects. Opiates have myriad side effects and this market promises to be profitable.

With all the dangers posed by opioid painkillers, there is a pressing need to develop safer treatment options for pain management. One emerging alternative is medical cannabis. Recent research has shown that medical marijuana reduces prescription drug use. It poses a threat to Big Pharma’s bottom line. This may explain why a dangerous narcotic like OxyContin is legal and marijuana is not.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a drug-free approach to pain management. It borrows from the principles of acupuncture and can help balance your subtle energy system. It also helps resolve underlying, often subconscious, negative emotions that may be exacerbating your physical pain. I strongly urge you to exhaust every possible option before resorting to opiate drugs.
