SHOULD WE PAY ATTENTION TO THE SIDE EFFECTS WHICH ARE LISTED ON THE MEDICINES WE ARE USING?

Everyone is aware of the list of the side effects every medication comes with.
The list is a part of the small print on the box the medication comes with. Most people do not even look at it.
Recently I was asked to write about those side effects and how real are they since most people do not experience any of them. This is true but many people do.
So if you are using a medicinal drug and you want to know if it is important to read about those side effects, my answer is, not at all.
This may have surprised you so let me elaborate a bit about my answer.
Let us use some references.
The most popular drug worldwide is the aspirin. It is estimated that 40 thousand tons of aspirin are consumed yearly. This would let us believe that aspirin is safe and harmless drug wouldn’t it?
Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) suppresses the cellular production of prostaglandins and thromboxane in our body.
What are prostaglandins?
Prostaglandins are proteins made by our cells that control the variety of chemical reactions. Because of this, prostaglandins are involved in;
– constriction or dilation in smooth muscle cells of the blood vessels
– sensitize the spinal neurons to pain
– decrease the intraocular pressure
– regulate the calcium movement
– regulate the hormones
– acts on the thermoregulatory center to produce fever
– acts on the kidney cells to increase filtration
– inhibit the acid secretion in stomach cells
– regulate the inflammation
– cause the contractions of the uterus…

When you know what prostaglandins regulate and you use a drug that suppresses their production in your body there will be a variety of problems caused that your body will have to overcome so that it can function efficiently.
So when you use aspirin because your doctor told you that it will thin your blood and this is what you need, or you want to suppress a fever or a headache, you can see how many other changes will this create in your body.

When our body produces a chemical compound, it produces it locally and only one area of the body will get affected by it. When we use the medicinal remedy, it will bet absorbed and affects the whole body. This throws the body out of a balance.

Decreased production of the stomach acid, decreases the production of sodium bicarbonate in your stomach so a stomach pain related to acid burns is to be expected including a stomach ulcer.

Thinning the blood actually means to prevent it from coagulating so prolonged hemorrhaging may be expected. This can lead to cerebral strokes as the small hemorrhaging of the brain persists and contributes to the accumulation of blood in one area of the brain. This increases a pressure on the brain tissue preventing it from oxidation. Doctors call this a stroke.

The suppression of prostaglandins reduces kidney filtration and contributes to the kidney failure.

So is it necessary to look at the list of the side effects?

Would you decide not to use aspirin if you would have been told what are the consequences of using this drug? Most likely you would use aspirin because your trustworthy doctor has recommended it so why bother reading about the “possible” side effects at all.
The question is not if the drug will create the side effects. The question is only if you are going to feel the symptoms of those side effects or not. More toxic is your body, higher is the probability that your body will show more symptoms that were caused by the suppressive action of the medication in question.

I have used aspirin to demonstrate what medicaments do to our body but aspirin at least lowers the pain, fever, and headache so it will make us feel better. But what about those completely unnecessary drugs like statins which suppress cholesterol synthesis in our body?

Three different types of statins available in the UK, Atorvastatin, Pravastatin and Simvastatin Stock Photo
The cholesterol that you eat in the form of animal saturated fats will break down in your digestive tract into fatty acids and amino acids. So this is what your body will actually receive. From this, your body decides how it will utilize those elements. If your cells demand cholesterol, this is what your body will produce and send through the circulation so that the cholesterol can reach the needy cells.
What is cholesterol being used for?
30 % of the cellular membranes of the animal cells are composed of cholesterol.
Within the cell membrane, cholesterol also functions in the intracellular transport, the cell signalling and the nerve conduction.
The cholesterol is necessary for the synthesis of vitamin D and in the synthesis of many hormones.
The cholesterol also plays very important part in the biliary fluids.
Extremely important is the role of the cholesterol in providing the necessary proteins and fats for the production of the myelin coating around the neurons.
The false interpretation of LDL and HDL cholesterol as a good and bad cholesterol just show you how disconnected the doctors are from the reality. The fats are the same only the protein is different and what protein will be manufactured depends strictly on the cellular demand and has nothing to do with cholesterol creating a health problem.
On the contrary, interfering with the cholesterol production prevents the body to supply the cholesterol that was demanded by the cells and now our body has to decide where it will use the available cholesterol and were not. This causes multiple health issues as the body cannot function normally when it is deprived of the necessary building blocks.
People on statins drugs will experience muscle problems including heart attack, mental problems like depression, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, hormonal imbalances, eye problems….

There is not a single benefit that comes from using statins and they should never be prescribed, never!!!

There is not a single health problem caused by elevated cholesterol, no matter how high the blood cholesterol may be.

There is no need for me to continue describing the health problems caused by other medicinal drugs since all of them are undesirable by our bodies and the body wants them to be eliminated as fast as possible. For this reason, all medicinal remedies induce diuretic effect lowering the amount of water in our body. About the consequences of dehydration, I wrote many times. Dehydration is the major reason for the acidic body especially on the cellular level and it is the number one reason for allergies and other chronic diseases humanity suffers from.

So is it important to read about the side effects of medicines?
Not at all. If you are naive enough to use the medicinal remedies for extended periods of time, be prepared to suffer the consequences and as I have demonstrated, the consequences are general and affect everyone who uses the medicinal remedies. There is no such a thing as mild medicine if it is used prolonged time.
I know, many of you will remind me of their necessity to control pain or another symptom.
Medicinal remedies are useful as a temporary solution to an acute health problem but they do not promote healing. So if you are using a medicament to suppress a symptom, you will use it for 1-3 days. As soon as the symptoms (the pain or inflammation) are gone, you should stop with the medicine and start with the healing process. No healing is possible while the body is poisoned by the medicinal remedies.
If you use medicine for a short time, you do not have to be concerned at the collateral damage and the side effects that medicine is producing. The collateral damage and the side effects of the drugs are all cumulative and require extended usage of the medicinal remedy. The more toxic is the body, earlier and more symptoms of ill health will show up. It is a simple math.
Eat correctly, hydrate and avoid stress. This is the best medicine one can take and I promise, no health problems will occur.
Love and light.

  1. Dear Darko, great info. How about change of personality? Could mixing all these chemicals like aspirin, sleeping aid, statins, bp meds, just to mention some.
    Not thinking dementia, but more irritable and not thinking the way they used to.
    Have a great day! Love

    • Birgita, as those foreign chemicals affect cells, they affect the neurones as well. There is no question about if they affect our behaviour or not. Of course they do.
