Is it toxic?

Do you know if the medication you are taking to reduce pain or to improve your overall health is bad for you? Here are some healthier alternatives.danger sign and barrels of toxins

The most frequently prescribed medications in the United States treat four conditions: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, pain, and a low-functioning thyroid. Here are some alternatives to those prescription drugs.

To lower blood pressure
• Adopt the DASH diet—fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains and limited quantities of meat, fat, dairy, nuts, salt, and sweets
• Increase your Coenzyme Q10, magnesium (almonds, avocados, bananas, cashews, dark chocolate, flaxseed, kale, pecans, pumpkin seeds, soy, spinach, tuna) , and potassium (apricots, bananas)

To lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol
• Change your diet—eliminate the highly processed, fried, sugary, fatty foods and replace them with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, olive oil, garlic,  oats, and small amounts of dark chocolate and red wine

To alleviate pain
• Consult your homeopath to determine the best homeopathic remedy to match the kind of pain you are experiencing
• For face, jaw, and mouth pain, visit your dentist to rule out dental problems
• If you suffer from migraines, eliminate foods that may trigger headaches including aged cheeses, chocolate, citrus, fermented foods, MSG, nitrates, wine
• Try acupuncture, chiropractic treatment, and/or massage

To counteract a low-functioning thyroid
• Consult with your homeopath to rule out an underlying disease or medical condition causing lethargy, cold extremities, and other symptoms of hypothyroidism
• Make sure your diet is rich in foods that contain iodine (bananas, baked potatoes, cranberries, iodized salt, shrimp, tuna, turkey),  iron (beans, beef, broccoli, fish, ham, poultry, tofu, and foods enriched with iron), and selenium (brazil nuts, beef, chicken, oysters, pork, sunflower seeds, tuna, whole wheat bread)

None of these solutions are toxic. Why not give them a try?
