Pharmaceutical companies dream of huge profits from coronavirus
- Why you might have to pay through the nose for a covid cure
- Why Big Pharma doesn’t care about you
- Natural alternatives to common drugs
The hunt is on for a coronavirus cure.
A good and noble ambition you might imagine.
After all, if we can find a successful treatment, everything can go back to normal.
Or whatever counts as ‘normal’ these days.
This is why we should pull together as a human race to find that cure, or preventative.
Great in theory.
But in reality, we’re not quite all pulling together.
When it comes to finding a cure, there are some who are only interested in one thing… money.
And by ‘some’ I mean Big Pharma.
They’ve been up to their old tricks again, blatantly showing their disregard for public health and insatiable hunger for the most profit imaginable.
You see, there are UK companies like AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKlein who are working right now on treatments for covid-19 and if they find them, they want to profit from them.
They have no apparent interest in making any treatment widely available at an affordable price or allowing anyone else to make the remedy themselves.
And here’s the proof…
The plan to profit from the covid cure
At the beginning of this month, the British government said they wouldn’t support a World Health Organization initiative to share research on coronavirus treatments between different countries.
They also refused to promise that if we found a cure, it would be patent free so it could be used across the world, by even the poorest countries.
Why would the government do that?
Because of Big Pharma pressure.
The giant company Pfizer called the WHO proposal “nonsense”, and the director of the lobbying group, International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations, said he was “too busy” to attend the launch of the proposal.
They’re not interested in sharing the cures and treatments they find with anyone else.
Because they want to make money.
And that’s probably unsurprising because they are corporations.
The whole aim of a corporation’s existence is not to share or care but to make more profits for themselves and more money for their shareholders.
The product might be medicine but they treat it no differently than if their product was cars, beer or anti-wrinkle cream…
They want people to need what they have… rely on it… be addicted to it… and pay as much as possible for it.
Why Big Pharma doesn’t care about you
The idea of genuinely curing diseases and ailments is not really at the forefront of Big Pharma thinking.
They want to make a fortune by creating drugs for chronic problems, over which they have monopoly protection so nobody else can possibly ever make them.
Think about that for a second…
If you’re the only company selling something that millions of people desperately need, you can pretty much charge what you like.
You make lots of profit, guaranteed, and you don’t even need to worry about little issues like ‘nasty side effects’ including addiction, stomach problems and organ damage.
If you remove the moral issue from this, what a great racket to be in!
There aren’t many kinds of business where you can charge massive mark-ups, have zero competition, and still have flaws in your product without losing clients.
For instance, there is a medication for hepatitis C, produced by Gilead, which costs $5 per course to make but is on sale for $18,000 per course.
That… is… just… ridiculous.
It doesn’t matter what side of the political spectrum you are on, that can’t be right can it?
So what can we do about it?
Well, you cannot go up against mega-corporations on your own.
But you can take more control of your own health…
Finding natural alternatives to common drugs
The key is to keep finding ways you can control and avoid common health problems, so you don’t end up being pushed onto these drugs in the first place.
Of course that’s not easy, but there are alternatives to some of the common Big Pharma products that we can use to help keep us out of the doctor’s office.
Take, for example, COX-2 inhibitors, which are given for inflammatory problems like arthritis, including celecoxib (Celebrex) and etoricoxib (Arcoxia).
There is a natural ingredient that also does the same thing…
Curcumin has been shown to inhibit the COX-2 enzyme without any horrible side effects. It also inhibits something called the ‘nuclear factor kappa beta’ which is another substance involved in inflammation.
You get curcumin in the spice turmeric which has been used for centuries in Eastern Medicine to prevent inflammation and ease joint pain.
It’s also one of the key ingredients in this full spectrum natural anti-inflammatory: Doluperine
Or let’s take the example of statins, a drug that reduces the level of bad cholesterol in your bloodstream to lower your chances of heart disease.
GPs prescribe them to any patient with a 20% or more risk of developing heart disease, which even the deputy chairman of the British Medical Association, Dr Kailash Chandhas, claimed was “a commercialisation device and not in patients’ best interests.”
However, there is an alternative for that too…
Bergamot is lemon-orange hybrid that grows in Southern Italy. It contains special compounds that block one of the key enzymes in the production of cholesterol.
In other words, it works just like statins.
You can take it through a natural supplement like BergaMet. More details on the webpage here.
Even drugs for fungal infections can have serious side effects, including liver and kidney damage.
So in the next post I’m going to tell you about a natural way to control infections caused by candida and other fungi and bacteria.
This is something brand new, which I don’t think you’ll have seen before. And it’s thanks to the seed of one fruit which has powerful qualities indeed.
