Kennesaw Chiropractor Questions Trillion Dollar Pharmaceutical Advertising Budget

One Trillion dollars, that is one thousand million dollars is the rough amount that pharmaceutical companies collectively spend on advertising their products per year. These advertisements usually include happy, healthy-looking, smiling people. What they are attempting to sell you is health. But we know better!

Health does not and cannot come in the form of a pill, potion, or lotion. Health comes from the inside! There are no shortcuts to achieving and maintaining good health. If you wait until you have symptoms and treat them with drugs, you are already well down the path leading away from health. You can avoid this fact by taking pharmaceuticals and mask your symptom, but this is not health.

Don’t allow yourself be deceived by these fraudulent advertisements! They are not selling you health, but simply the illusion of health.The more absurd the drug campaigns become, and the bigger the list of side effects, more and more people are beginning to realize this simple truth. For some people, though, this is often a difficult point to convey, because most of us grew up in a house where our families turned to the “medicine cabinet” whenever they had even minor ailments. And all of our lives, we’ve been continually bombarded with this fraudulent philosophy, to the tune of 1,000,000,000 advertising dollars per month!

When we got “sick” as children, our parents, god bless them, out of sympathy and compassion for us, gave us medicine that would lower our fever, help us sleep, or otherwise make us a little more comfortable. What they probably didn’t know was that our bodies needed to express those symptoms, and keep our fevers high in order to fight off whatever it was we had, and by artificially lowering them, we probably stayed “sick” for longer! The health was being expressed from within, in our body’s adaptation, but by attempting to make us more comfortable, the drugs were actually working against our body’s wants and wishes, and making us less healthy.

Here are the adverse effects (effects) of a popular drug that has recently been heavily marketed. Does this sound like health to you!?

  • A sedated feeling — up to 23 percent
  • Agitation — up to 19 percent

We all understand deep down that true health can only come from keeping our bodies functioning at their best. There are many ways to do this: eating good, wholesome foods, giving your body the exercise it needs, having a positive mental attitude, and balancing our stress levels. Think of these leaves and branches on your tree called “Health”.

But the part of health that is most overlooked is the foundation, the trunk of that tree, the literal choke point for its organization and physical center. This, in our bodies, is our spine and nervous system! It is the system that is most involved with coordination of our body’s functions; therefore, it is our most vital body system. If the trunk of our tree is weak, we can’t get the most out of our leaves and branches!
