Origin and Definition of The Word Pharmaceutical
- Apharmakós in Ancient Greek religion was the ritualistic sacrifice or exile of a human scapegoat or victim.
- The term “pharmakos” later became the term “pharmakeus” which refers to “a drug, spell-giving potion, druggist, poisoner, by extension a magician or a sorcerer.” A variation of this term is “pharmakon” a complex term meaning sacrament, remedy, poison, talisman, cosmetic, perfume or intoxicant. From this, the modern term “pharmacology” emerged
- Bible usage of Pharmakeia: the use or the administering of drugs; poisoning; sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it
- Pharmaceutical (adj.): 1640s (pharmaceutic in the same sense is from 1540s), from Late Latin pharmaceuticus “of drugs,” from Greek pharmakeutikos, from pharmakeus “preparer of drugs, poisoner” (see pharmacy).
- Pharmacy (n.): (13c.), from Medieval Latin pharmacia, from Greek pharmakeia “use of drugs, medicines, potions, or spells; poisoning, witchcraft; remedy, cure,” from pharmakeus (fem. pharmakis) “preparer of drugs, poisoner, sorcorer” from pharmakon “drug, poison, philter, charm, spell, enchantment.”
Big pharma creates a web of disease – no patient can escape
For the pharmaceutical delivery device industry, understanding the core of human factors engineering (HFE) is designed to look at the context of how a human interacts with the world. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has offered recommendations for medical device design optimization through human factors analysis testing and validation. Using in-depth statistical analysis, data, aggregation and a thorough understanding of the potential users’ behaviors, motivation and needs means disease management can become a permanent fixture in the lives of patients.
One (major) theme emerging in conventional medicine is that early treatment and acclimation to a medically-managed condition equals a “healthy” solution. Yet, no one bothers to ask why a toxic (often lethal) prescription drug is needed to be healthy? Pharmaceutical companies develop compelling marketing and sales campaigns; product launches; and compliance studies to produce the world’s most manipulated population.
Understanding the truth will free you of drug addictions
- Big pharma produces chronically ill patients by creating a dependency on drugs to only alleviate symptoms, not the underlying cause of disease. And, let’s not forget the serious (negative) side effects of taking these poisonous chemicals.
- The FDA just issued a drug-safety communication for the first time that ties incretin mimetic drugs used for type-2 diabetics as contributors to pancreatitis and precancerous cellular changes.
- Incretin therapy increases pancreatic mass and beta cell mass potentially putting patients at risk for malignancies which would entail using a whole slew of chemotherapy drugs. This puts in perspective the saying, “with managed care a patient can become a patient for life.”
- A study reported in JAMA Internal Medicine found a significant rush of hospitalization for acute pancreatitis, while Peter Butler, MD of the University of California Los Angeles and colleagues found an increased risk of both pancreatic and thyroid cancer from these diabetic drugs.
- This is just one example of how long-term use of prescription drugs cause more harm than good.
A better way – no drug company wants you to understand
- Diabetes, heart disease and cancer are complex pathological conditions that conventional pharmaceuticals will never cure. There is a way to prevent devastating, long term dependence on drugs through simple changes to lifestyle habits. Evidence is providing a new model for studying the interaction between diet, gene expression, physiological response and disease.
- There are published papers in Cell by A.J. Marian Walhout, PhD, co-director of the Program in Systems Biology and professor of molecular medicine who describe how metabolism and physiology are connected to diet. Her work describes how different diets produce differences in gene expression – which can be linked to crucial physiological changes.
- We already know that diet affects the bacteria in the human digestive system, which are linked to physiological changes. The digestive system houses most of the immune system – our primary defense against disease. In addition, diet is now being connected to the length of telomeres – which are intimately related to a long, healthy life.
- Diet also changes insulin signaling pathways and gene expression which is what practically inhibits type-2 diabetes from occurring and reverses its progression naturally. By the way, if you suffer from diabetes – I encourage you to investigate the successful work of Dr. Gabriel Cousens. He’s curing diabetics without the need for toxic drugs.
- The bottom line – the pharmaceutical agenda is to provide temporary relieve, not to support a real return to health. Their definition of health includes regular doctor and pharmacy visits just to survive. Drugs are being positioned as a reliable partner for all stages of human existence including infants, toddlers, teens, adults and seniors.
Lifestyle factors are extraordinary powerful at preserving youthful functioning and supporting favorable gene expression. There is an abundance of scientific data to suggest that a low-cost, dietary approach can produce unprecedented breakthroughs in cellular performance and health.
No drug formulation can produce the benefits of a plant-based, natural (chemical free) diet. Make every effort to be healthy and live the life of your dreams.
PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS ARE EXPENSIVE AND UNHEALTHY
Did you ever wonder how much it costs a drug company for the active ingredient in prescription medications? Some people think it must cost a lot, since many drugs sell for more than $2.00 per tablet. We did a search of offshore chemical synthesizers that supply the active ingredients found in drugs approved by the FDA.
A significant percentage of drugs sold in the United State contain active ingredients made in other countries. In our independent investigation of how much profit drug companies really make, we obtained the actual price of active ingredients used in some of the most popular drugs sold in America.

The Laws of the Pharmaceutical Industry
The main principles governing the pharmaceutical “business with disease.” It is not in the financial interests of the pharmaceutical industry to prevent common diseases – the maintenance and expansion of diseases is a precondition for the financial growth of this industry.
The pharmaceutical industry is an investment industry driven by the profits of its shareholders. Improving human health is not the driving force of this industry.
The pharmaceutical investment industry was artificially created and strategically developed over an entire century by the same investment groups that control the global petrochemical and chemical industries.
The huge profits of the pharmaceutical industry are based on the patenting of new drugs. These patents essentially allow drug manufacturers to arbitrarily define the profits for their products.
The marketplace for the pharmaceutical industry is the human body – but only for as long as the body hosts diseases. Thus, maintaining and expanding diseases is a precondition for the growth of the pharmaceutical industry.
A key strategy to accomplish this goal is the development of drugs that merely mask symptoms while avoiding the curing or elimination of diseases. This explains why most prescription drugs marketed today have no proven efficacy and merely target symptoms.
To further expand their pharmaceutical market, the drug companies are continuously looking for new applications (indications) for the use of drugs they already market. For example, Bayer’s pain pill Aspirin is now taken by 50 million healthy US citizens under the illusion it will prevent heart attacks.
Another key strategy to expand pharmaceutical markets is to cause new diseases with drugs. While merely masking symptoms short term, most of the prescription drugs taken by millions of patients today cause a multitude of new diseases as a result of their known long-term side effects. For example, all cholesterol-lowering drugs currently on the market are known to increase the risk of developing cancer – but only after the patient has been taking the drug for several years.
The known deadly side effects of prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death in the industrialized world, surpassed only by the number of deaths from heart attacks, cancer and strokes (Journal of the American Medical Association, April 15, 1998). This fact is no surprise either, because drug patents are primarily issued for new synthetic molecules. All synthetic molecules need to be detoxified and eliminated from the body, a system that frequently fails and results in an epidemic of severe and deadly side effects.
While the promotion and expansion of diseases increase the market of the pharmaceutical investment industry – prevention and root cause treatment of diseases decrease long-term profitability; therefore, they are avoided or even obstructed by this industry.
Worst of all, the eradication of diseases is by its very nature incompatible with and diametrically opposed to the interests of the pharmaceutical investment industry. The eradication of diseases now considered as potential drug markets will destroy billions of investment dollars and eventually will eliminate this entire industry.
Vitamins and other effective natural health therapies that optimize cellular metabolism threaten the pharmaceutical “business with disease” because they target the cellular cause of today’s most common diseases – and these natural substances cannot be patented.
Throughout the more than one hundred year existence of the pharmaceutical industry, vitamins and other essential nutrients, with defined functions as cofactors in cellular metabolism, have been the fiercest competition and the greatest threat to the long-term success of the pharmaceutical investment business.
Vitamins and other effective natural health therapies that effectively prevent diseases are incompatible with the very nature of the pharmaceutical “business with disease.”
To protect the strategic development of its investment business against the threat from effective, natural and non-patentable therapies, the pharmaceutical industry has – over an entire century – used the most unscrupulous methods, such as:
(1) Withholding life-saving health information from millions of people. It is simply unacceptable that today so few know that the human body cannot produce vitamin C and lysine, two key molecules for connective tissue stability and disease prevention.
(2) Discrediting natural health therapies. The most common way is through global PR campaigns organized by the Pharma-Cartel that spread lies about the alleged side effects of natural substances – molecules that have been used by nature for millennia.
(3) Banning by law the dissemination of information about natural health therapies. To that end, the pharmaceutical industry has placed its lobbyists in key political positions in key markets and leading drug export nations.
The pharmaceutical “business with disease” is the largest deception and fraud business in human history. The product “health” promised by drug companies is not delivered to millions of patients. Instead, the “products” most often delivered are the opposite: new diseases and frequently, death.
The survival of the pharmaceutical industry is dependent on the elimination by any means of effective natural health therapies. These natural and non-patentable therapies have become the treatment of choice for millions of people despite the combined economic, political and media opposition of the world’s largest investment industry.
Pharmaceuticals offer only “treatments” never the cure
CURE: something that stops a disease and makes someone healthy again
TREATMENT: the techniques or actions customarily applied in a specified situation
A treatment is defined as a set of techniques or actions applied to a specific situation that does not have to end with the patient being cured. When you visit a doctor they are going to treat you according to the specific procedures they have outlined according to your illness.
- Doctors by law are required to treat patients with certain approved methods (that almost always include pharmaceuticals), but doctors are not required to cure or heal patients by law.
- The medical industry makes its money by “treating” patients with toxic chemicals and then re-diagnosing them with new diseases that were caused by the first round of drugs.
- The medical system is not required by law to provide you with treatments that lead you to being healed and cured of your issue.
- Drug companies cannot patent natural plants or fruits so they use synthetic chemicals to create drugs that can be sold for profit.
- Drug companies cannot make money off of natural cures because substances found in nature cannot be patented for medical use.
Use medications as little as possible and get cured by eating healing foods and living a healthy lifestyle.
