Why Big Pharma Is Lying To You About Pain Meds

Pain Medications Kill Thousands a Year: Why Big Pharma is Lying to You

Who should be making decisions about your health? The government, Big Pharma, your healthcare provider or you? More importantly, do you feel you should have the right to make your own choices concerning your health?

What is Big Pharma?

When it comes to medical treatment, there are a lot of factors that play a role in your recovery, including pharmaceutical companies (Big Pharma). Because there is a demand for pain relief, this billion dollar industry helps regularly supply Americans with pills, form relationships with physicians in getting them to prescribe their medication and now, are a huge player in the growing drug addiction crisis.

In fact, recently The New York Times reported that Purdue Pharma knew early on that the drug they marketed, OxyContin, was widely abused, but continued to market it as less addictive, concealing that information from the public. This goes directly against their previous claims that they were “unaware of the powerful opioid growing abuse until years after it went on the market.”

So, how is it that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is approving drugs that are often abused and/or unsafe for consumers? Below we dive into Big Pharma and their relationship with the FDA and the dangers they pose to you, the consumer. We also discuss another alternative — stem cell therapy — to treating various injuries and illnesses.

FDA and Big Pharma

What is the relationship between the FDA and Big Pharma? They, in fact, have a very symbiotic relationship. Big Pharma companies need approval from the FDA to sell the drug, while the FDA needs more drugs in circulation to help fund their organization. According to drugwatch.com, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) receives two-thirds of its budget from pharmaceutical companies — through application/user fees. So, in the end, both need each other in order to prosper.

As such, critics have found that Big Pharma uses many manipulative tactics to help sway the FDA, lawmakers and the public to approve and buy the drugs.
These tactics include:
Drugs produced via counterfeit methods—putting less effective products in circulation.
Drugs are registered with insufficient information or incorrect information.
Royalties collected through manipulation.
Ghostwriting clinical trials.
Influence multiple healthcare realms, including medical researchers, medical schools, and teaching hospitals.
Paying doctors to participate in surveys of medicines they have never prescribed before.
Pharmaceutical companies buying positive reviews of the drug’s safety and effectiveness to reputable medical journals.
Because of this, the Big Pharma industry and its corruption can hinder your health and it’s important to thoroughly research options and discuss them with your healthcare provider.

Dangers of FDA Approved Over-The-Counter Drugs

Last year, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that a third of the drugs the FDA approved between 2001 and 2010 were “involved in some kind of safety event after reaching the market.”

Another danger involves speeding up the FDA’s drug approval process. In the Journal of the American Medical Association study, one of the study’s authors, Joseph Ross, discussed the concerns about accelerating the FDA process as they found that the drugs that were previously accelerated through the process were associated with higher rates of postmarket safety issues. He explained that this accelerated approval process has “the potential for compromising patient safety.”

As such, not only are some FDA drugs unsafe, one side effect of being an overprescribed nation (nearly 70 percent of Americans are on at least one prescription drug) is overdose deaths. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) analysis of 2016 U.S. drug overdose data shows that America’s overdose epidemic is spreading geographically and increasing across demographic groups. Drug overdoses killed 63,632 Americans in 2016 and 66% involved a prescription or illicit opioid. That’s more lives lost than the lives lost for the entirety of the Vietnam War. Additionally, prescription drugs are the third most commonly abused category of drugs, after alcohol and marijuana.

Luckily, there are other options out there besides pharmaceuticals when it comes to treating various conditions. Take stem cell therapy for instance. Using adult stem cells from the patient found throughout the body — including bone marrow, blood, muscle tissue and adipose tissue — stem cell therapy makes it possible for the body to regenerate and heal itself after an injury or illness. Think about that. The body can be used to heal itself!

Moreover, the side effects of stem cell therapy are minimal compared to side effects from prescription drugs or surgery. Stem cell therapy is a simple, noninvasive procedure and has little or no side effects. However, it’s important to note that some patients may experience pain and irritation for a couple of hours after the procedure. These are the same minimal complications that you would experience with any other sort of noninvasive injections.

The FDA is increasing enforcement on stem cell therapy and is actively trying to stop stem cell therapy from progressing. As such, there needs to be more of a discussion about how stem cell therapy eliminates the need for prescription drugs and the part they play in healing from illness and injury. If people could heal themselves with their own cells, then there wouldn’t be as big of a need for prescription drugs. Better yet, the profits of drug companies would also decrease.

At NSI Stem Cell, we have helped almost 15,000 patients and their various ailments through stem cell therapy and hope the FDA will take the right steps in order to support safe and effective stem cell therapies.

The 4 Basic Stem Cell Types: Knowing The Difference

Understanding Stem Cell Types And How Each Are Affected By Stem Cell Ethics

Stem cell ethics and medical ethics go hand-in-hand. Legitimate stem cell medical facilities have been in the U.S. for many years now. But there are still some in the general public that believe regenerative medicine remains in the shadows of moral code. This is largely because many people are unaware of the practices used today based on advancements that resolved the dilemma of stem cell ethics decades ago. These modern methods use stem cell types that eliminate ethical concerns. Continue reading “The 4 Basic Stem Cell Types: Knowing The Difference”

Is Stem Cell Treatment FDA Approved?

Is stem cell treatment FDA approved? Is it “legal”? Questions like these open the floodgates to some of the largest hesitations people have about receiving stem cell treatment – which is a shame because if more people knew the truth, a lot more people would be suffering less.

The Answer

The simple answer to this question would be this: The FDA does not approve nor deny the use of autologous stem cells (stem cells derived from the patient’s body). This is because the FDA can only approve or deny drugs and medical devices – autologous stem cells do not fall into either category.

At NSI Stem Cell, the cells we use in our facilities are harvested from the patient and delivered back to the patient in a same-day procedure. There is also minimal manipulation of the patient’s cells before it is delivered back to them.

Our procedures are all compliant within the guidelines listed in the FDA Code of Federal Regulations 21 Part 1271. They fall under the category of physician’s practice of medicine governed by state licensure, meaning that the physician and patient are free to consider their chosen course of treatment.

Why Does the FDA “Warn About Stem Cell Claims”?

As we mentioned, all of our procedures are compliant within the guidelines listed by the FDA. This is what the FDA wants patients to follow-up on when considering any type of stem cell treatment and why they “warn about stem cell claims.”

It’s also important to note the differentiation between autologous stem cells and “stem cell-based products.” The FDA does regulate stem cell-based products because they are manufactured and marketed. These cells are cultured and have been processed by a lab; not to mention that they are not autologous stem cells and may come from a variety of sources.

Patients and every-day individuals who are aware of these issues have also expressed their overwhelming concern about what it might mean to regulate autologous stem cells.* You can see on this forum here that many are disgusted with the idea of putting barriers and restrictions on what patients are permitted to do with their own biological material.

For instance, Christopher French comments, “What is of my person is mine and mine alone. Anything else is a perversion of self and an erosion of my rights. My stem cells are for me to do with whatever I wish.”

We have helped thousands of patients find pain relief because of our stem cell treatments. We ensure all of our patients that they are in safe, ethical and legal hands. Our goal is to improve their life for the better by administered the proper treatment and care.

We know that stem cells cannot treat any condition, but we have seen great success with patients suffering from back pain, knee pain, multiple sclerosis, COPD, and many others.* So, if you are an individual who is considering stem cell therapy, or another type of treatment, get educated first. First and foremost, you must be comfortable with your treatment. Our medical professionals will be glad to talk to you about all the ins and outs of our stem cell procedures.

What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic

When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.

The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.

 

What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:

1. Highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and team members who have performed stem cell procedures on thousands of patients with incredible results.

2. Cutting edge procedures utilizing all that regenerative medicine has to offer for many chronic degenerative conditions.
