Placebo’s: They ‘ain’t’ what They Used to Be!

Image

I received my usual HSI Newsletter from Jenny Thompson this morning and instead of sending it to trash because it contains so much pushy sales stuff, I actually read it and more supportive information shared and this blew me away, because something that was shared that I never even thought could be possible and that is that BIG Pharma would/could tamper with the placebo or sugar pill itself, to manipulate the outcome of a double blind, placebo controlled drug test. I have written extensively about placebo’s right here on this blog. However, if you have put your confidence and your very life in these peoples hands who conduct these tests, please read this:

The placebo is part of the hallowed halls of medical  science and professionals everywhere. How often to do we see the term “placebo-controlled and think WOW that has got to mean something important?

To these so called ‘evidenced based’ afficianando’s, they mean to make you believe, you can trust the results…in a nut shell, that their new drug has been compared to a “sugar pill” and this therefore proved how good it is.

There’s a lot people out there that don’t know about drug trials. And this is a very important aspect: we definitely should not trust entirely the placebo-controlled results. And that’s because we can’t trust the placebo itself for one of myriad reasons. Well, who in Big Pharma can we trust? So this comes as no surprise. However, the placebo pill or sugar pill is one of the dirty little secrets in the drug industry.

Big Pharma wants you to believe it’s only a “sugar pill.” But that’s just the generic way they refer to placebos. In fact, few — if any — actually contain sugar.

So what DO they contain, was the very good question that Jenny poised?

The answer she suggested is  that they reveal the outright myth of this “gold standard” in drug research.

Think of how placebo results are used in advertising alone…

Jenny reminds us: “A few years ago, there was a TV drug ad with this voiceover: “The most common side effects — including headache, drowsiness, fatigue and dry mouth — occurred about as often as they did with a sugar pill.”

A sugar pill? How does a “sugar pill” cause headache, drowsiness, fatigue, and dry mouth?

Now think of all the times we’ve seen drug companies hide harmful data, manipulate numbers, or pay prestigious doctors to lend their names to research they didn’t do.”

Think of all that, and then consider this little-known fact:

Those very same drug companies design the “recipes” for placebos used in their own clinical trials. And they aren’t required to include the contents of the placebo in their study results.

In some cases it’s believed they even use lower doses of the drug being studied. How else would a sugar pill or cornstarch cause the level of side effects of a chemical concoction?

Placebo researcher Dr. Beatrice Golomb reports that placebo contents are never revealed in nine out of 10 drug studies that appear in major journals.

That leaves a lot of room for drug companies to tweak placebo ingredients to get the results they want without anyone ever knowing.

For additional reading to help get a clear picture of the ‘believing is seeing,’ notion which further explores placebo’s and their new cousin the ’nocebo’ read this wonderful excerpt from Bruce Lipton’s book, Spontaneous Evolution. 

The addition of MOXXOR for both people and animals (see our holistic health care books and products for dogs and cats here) along with a healthy, organic, gluten free, low carb, mostly raw diet;  one that includes quality protein along with moderate daily exercise, such as walking with BungyPump walking poles and daily use of the BEMER (for improving impaired microcirculation and NanoVi devices for the benefits of bio-identical signaling, (see the images below)NanoVi-front-reclining-on-sky-1024x768 is just about the best advice I can share with you! Contact me for information on these re-evolutionary protocols and order MOXXOR at http://www.MoxxArt.com/ . I have also done a blog here that helps us understand the benefits of MOXXOR Omega-3 over fish oil.

My MoxxArt.com website includes additional links for your perusal, videos, our documentary film Femme, etc., however for the BungyPump walking poles see http://www.Zfit.com or call 310 892 0202 and just say Celeste sent you for special prices and a free BungyPump/BEMER/NanoVi demo at our Pacific Palisades, CA Studio.
