Autoimmune Diseasaes – So many drug commercials

Do you turn off the drug commercials on TV?

It is interesting as the majority of these commercials fall currently under three categories migraine, psych drugs (and their side effect tardive dyskinesia and autoimmune diseases.. None of these drugs go to the cause of the problem and are just band aids that come with side effects

I like to talk about them all but the one that i notice the most are the autoimmune medications. The ones about you skin being clear, or your arthritis, or IBS or….. All of which are autoimmune problems.

And what they are selling is a medication which lowers your immune response, thus lowers your immunity.    Per Drugs.com….. “affects your immune system. You may get infections more easily:. The ad on TV states you may be unable to fight infections

Yes, and one says it lowers the large amount of eosinophils – which are white blood cells. So the disease creates a strong immune response, but the medication lowers it.

Now interestingly, there is apparently a “link” with autoimmune and migraine per studies and research done.

We will address migraines in another article as well as tardive dyskinesia which is actually a side effect of the drugs they give for “mental health”. TD as they now call it, is connected with a lack of B12. Yes we will get to that article as well.

But autoimmune seems to be the number one target …people do suffer from the itchy, blotchy skin problems as well as digestive problems, etc. all of which are really autoimmune problems.

To address these issues – build health.

Here are some pages that talk about this including skin problems,

“See Me” Medications? Are you risking your health?

I understand that problem.    It’s embarrassing to have ugly patches of redden skin and you feel you have to cover up which is harder in the summer..   The “see Me” medication also emphasizes the fact that people see the rash and judge the person – or so it seems.   It does look like it might be  contagious.

The solution is medications that unfortunately has a lot of side effects )I think I’ve seen at least 4 commercials for similar drugs.  The information on these  drug say that it “may lower the ability of your immune system to fight infections and may increase your risk of infections” This is pretty uniform on any medication that fights an autoimmune problem.   Lower the immune response and relieve the symptoms of you health challenge.

In this time of vaccines being important due to the flu pandemic, it doesn’t see wise to risk your health for clearer skin.’

I would think a better solution is something natural that work by addressing the inflammation aspect of the conditon.

For skin inflammation, MCVitamins recommends Inflammation Relief. Learn more about addressing skin problems naturally.
