Common Antibiotic Linked with Heart Deaths

Recently, researchers have been going back to study "time-tested" drugs only find inherent risk. For instance, a common heart drug always believed to be inherently safe is now believed to increase cardiac death. Some antibiotics were recently shown to alter immunity and lead to respiratory disease susceptibility later on.

Clarithromycin, a common antibiotic - lauded by WHO and used for wide variety of infections like gastritis, skin, lung, throat and lyme - can now be added to the list.

It belongs to a group of antibiotics known as macrolides. Macrolide antibiotics prolong the duration of electrical activity of the heart muscle (known as the QT interval) and are therefore thought to increase the risk of potentially fatal heart rhythm problems.

Recent concern and other studies led Danish researchers to believe that the cardiac safety profiles of each macrolide need to be studied in greater detail to help guide future clinical decisions.

So the team decided to assess the risk of cardiac death associated with clarithromycin and another macrolide called roxithromycin - they compared it with penicillin V, an antibiotic with no known cardiac risk. 

Using national databases, they identified over 5 million treatment courses among Danish adults aged 40-74 years from 1997 to 2011 (160,297 with clarithromycin, 588,988 with roxithromycin and 4,355,309 with penicillin V). Excluded from the list were people with serious disease or those who may be at high risk of death.

A total of 285 cardiac deaths were observed during ongoing use with the study drugs, 18 of which occurred during use of clarithromycin and 32 during use of roxithromycin.

After further adjustment, over all, clarithromycin was associated with a 76% higher risk of cardiac death compared with use of penicillin V. Or, 37 cardiac per 1 million courses. They did not find a risk for death after treatment ended.

Even with the previous numbers, they conclude no increased risk of cardiac death was found with ongoing or past use of roxithromycin. Perhaps that conclusion has to do with their elimination process.

They write:

Our study expands on the available knowledge of the cardiac safety of macrolides, being the first large scale population based observational study to show significantly increased cardiac risk with clarithromycin and the relative cardiac safety of roxithromycin.


They note:

clarithromycin is one of the more commonly used antibiotics in many countries and many millions of people are prescribed this drug each year; thus, the total number of excess (potentially avoidable) cardiac deaths may not be negligible.

They stress that the absolute risk is small but conclude that, before these results are used to guide clinical decision making:

...confirmation in independent populations is an urgent priority given the widespread use of macrolide antibiotics.

While the risk of cardiac death may sound small, there are other side effects to clarithromycin like vomiting, diarrhea, insomnia and abnormal liver function. Here are many more side effects.

During acute crises, a person needs to decide their best course of action. In the long run, though, it may be best to also focus on the immune system and have some high-power antibiotic herbals in their arsenal.

How to Trigger the Powerful Healing Force of the Heart Field Tags: health freedom spirituality the awakening

Michael Forrester, Prevent Disease
Waking Times

Every cause of disease first begins with an imbalance in the body’s energy systems, specifically, the interaction between how the heart communicates with the brain and the body. Fix that and there is no disease, ever. The heart can produce an electrical field 100 times greater than the brain and a magnetic field 5000 times greater. Which one are you using to heal?

Emotions are vibrations which influence consistently our reality. We not only think and work our way through a day, meeting, assignment, but also feel and believe our way through it. The outcome depends on both.

Simply put, the number one cause of health is your energetic and emotional state. How you connect emotionally to your overall wellness and wellbeing is more important than any supplement, food, exercise or health treatment. There is only one cause of disease and that has to do with the energy and frequency imbalances that exist within your body. Rectify that, and disease cannot exist…it would be impossible.

All the emotions are varieties of two: fear and love: Fear/stress is contagious and causes contraction: inhibits creativity, brain activity, inhibits the immune system,selective perception and over extensive periods of time leads to breakdown. Love (positive beliefs and emotions) has high impact and causes expansion: creativity, physical and mental endurance, more productivity in shorter time because we take decisions quicker because we are receptive and highly perceptive. This a question of Math, HeartMath (as per the contribution in this field of the HeartMath Institute): when one has accurate information, takes better decisions.

The quality of the field one creates with his heart influences his experience and reality.

The research behind the evolution of HeartMath came from the idea that the body’s emotional response to events do not always occur from “top-down” processing (i.e., the brain sends signals to the heart and other organs, and the body responds accordingly). Rather, it has now proven that often times our emotional state triggers our heart to send out its own signals to the brain and other organs, and the body then responds accordingly. For instance, while two-way communication between the cognitive and emotional systems is hard-wired into the brain, the actual number of neural connections going from the emotional centers to the cognitive centers is greater than the number going the other way. Have you ever: Made a “rash” decision? Done something dangerous on impulse? Taken a risk because you believed in it? This research helps explain the influence emotions have on our ability to think and act.

In fact, researchers at HeartMath have determined that the physiology and nerve centers of the heart are so complex and active, that they constitute a “brain” all on their own, termed a “mini-brain.” We now know that the heart contains cells that produce and release norepinephrine and dopamine, neurotransmitters once thought to be produced only by the brain and ganglia outside the heart. Even more remarkable is the discovery that the heart produces oxytocin -the “love hormone” – in concentrations that are as high as those in the brain.

7 Simple actions to create positive feelings:

1. Think about the colleagues who helped you today. Thank them in your heart. Think about your current assignments. Know that they will work out well and work from this space.

2. What is it that you would like to have professionally? A new project? With whom? Think about it in detail, be specific and imagine you are already working on it.

3. Entertain the feeling of celebration that arises in your heart. From this space take the appropriate actions to make it happen.

4. Find ways to help your colleagues, or make them feel that you care. Do one (in)visible act of kindness per day or more if you want to

5. Before starting your work day give thanks and envision it the way you want it to be.

6. When finishing your work day give thanks and clear it of negative emotions (which come out of fear that we know now is illusion). Do not take them at home or preserve for the next day.

7. Smile - The time of crisis is literally here: there is the fast pace of our world, the assault of too much to do with too little time and resources. Being in the present moment is just a concept for most of us and has little translation to daily life practice. Fear is wide spread and is polluting us on a very cellular level: hypertension, autoimmune diseases, cancer, infertility, chronic back problems, anxiety, and depression; the list could continue forever. The difference is how we interpret crisis because we can be at complete peace in the midst of chaos.

Can we live the life we want? Can we be authentic in our speech? Can we identify and release our underlying limiting beliefs so that we begin a new commitment towards genuine compassion, abundance, love and connection. Your commitment will show in your body and intentions.

You Would Have to be Insane to Follow MSM Medical Advice Tags: globalist agenda health freedom natural health

by Melissa Melton

Nutritional Anarchy

SaturatedButtermagcover

TIME declaring scientists were wrong about fat for decades…how many millions of people suffered for it?

We’ve all heard that coffee is bad for you. Or is it good for you? Butter and eggs used to be bad for you, but now they’re good…or are they?

The mainstream media is constantly reporting on new scientific medical studies, dishing out more advice than a doctor on what (and what not) to consume to maintain our health. One month, something will kill you, the next month, it’ll save your life.

Take this recent example. A couple weeks ago, The Telegraph reported that, based on a new scientific study, all adults over the age of 50 should take aspirinevery single day as a preventative measure to stave off cancer and heart disease.

Everyone.

Are you over 50? Is your mom? Grandma? Well according to The Telegraph’s reporting on this new study, you better be taking a daily aspirin every day for a decade. The outlet reported:

Middle-aged adults should take aspirin every day for ten years, according to scientists who found it could save more than 6,000 lives a year by preventing cancer and heart disease

Daily aspirin can prevent up to one third of cancers of the bowel, throat and stomach and can halve the risk of dying in some cases, according to the the largest, most comprehensive analysis of the drugs use.

The article goes on to downplay the risks associated with taking a daily aspirin:

It comes after previous research raised concerns about the side effects of aspirin, which include bleeding and ulcers. The new study found that while there was a small increased risk of a stroke, stomach bleeding and ulcers, the benefits of taking aspirin made it a “good bet”.

A “small” increased risk of a stroke?

Hm. That must be why the exact same media outlet was reporting back in December that, “A daily aspirin may do more harm than good,” noting that researchers at that time were claiming that regularly taking aspirin led to a 37 percent increased risk of internal bleeding and 38 percent increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke.

So which is it? Aspirin is good to stave off heart disease, but only if you want anearly 40 percent increased risk of suffering a potentially deadly hemorrhagic stroke? How is that even remotely a “good bet”? Anyone?

But yeah, listen to The Telegraph and go ahead and take aspirin every day for 10 years, you know…just in case. Never mind that while the study claims it will save 6,000 lives, it’s on record that drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration kill 100,000 people every year who took the drugs as prescribed.

Oh, and by the way, The Telegraph reporter doesn’t declare this little factoid on the aspirin study until the very last line of her article:

Several of the authors of the analysis declared that they have worked for the pharmaceutical industry connected to aspirin but that the findings and conclusions in the study do not represent their respective organisations. [emphasis added]

Oh really?!

What. A. Shock.

This is the other side of “science” — the bought-and-paid-for “science” conducted to paint the proper picture for whatever industry is funding it.

Sadly though, most people do not read articles all the way to the end. Most casual mainstream media customers will read a headline and if it grabs them, they might skim the first few paragraphs, meaning they’ll never even get to the part where the industry itself is essentially paying for the so-called “science” to propagandize people that these products are good for them.

Surely greed and fraud have nothing to do with “scientific advice,” do they?

And this is just one example. This happens all the time to the point no one can even keep what’s healthy or not straight anymore if basing it on mainstream media standards.

This isn’t to say that science gets everything wrong, obviously. It’s to illustrate that science can be paid for by corporate interests to say what those interests want it to say. Either way, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Dr. Russell Blaylock is a board certified neurosurgeon, author and lecturer who has dedicated his work to actually looking at the root cause of health issues so they can truly be cured with natural means, rather than patching over problems with potentially harmful pharmaceutical treatments that are never actually intended to “cure” anything in the first place (because there’s no real money to be made in cures).

Writing on aspirin as a blood thinner in his book Health and Nutrition Secrets, Dr. Blaylock says that strokes are a huge concern with taking a daily aspirin, noting, “One of the largest stroke-prevention studies using aspirin, the Physician’s Health Study, involved 22,000 physicians and found that patients taking aspirin had twice as many brain hemorrhages as those who did not take aspirin.”

Dr. Blaylock went on to point out that that the problem with just taking a daily aspirin to prevent strokes and heart attacks is that it doesn’t do anything to strengthen the actual blood vessels themselves, something people who are concerned with heart issues should definitely take into consideration.

Basically a weak blood vessel carrying thinned out blood is the perfect set up for a stroke. Makes sense.

Blaylock goes on to say that the herb Gingko Biloba not only thins the blood, but helps strengthen the collagen and elastin in blood vessel walls. In addition, flavonoids contained in Ginkgo biloba protect from free radical damage.

That’s in addition to other numerous Ginkgo biloba health effects reported by numerous other natural health sites, including:

  • Enhances memory
  • Uplifts the spirit
  • Strengthens the eyes
  • Relaxes constricted blood vessels
  • Improves circulation
  • Acts as an energy restorative
  • Provides antioxidant boost
  • Relieves tension and anxiety (source)

But Ginkgo biloba isn’t a manufactured chemical some guy started producing for Big Pharma company Bayer just over 100 years ago. It’s just a plant that’s been around for millions of years and been used medicinally since long before the guy who created aspirin’s grandparents were even a speck in their grandparents’ eyes. What does nature know?

By now we should all be asking ourselves how anyone anywhere lived to be over 60 ever in the history of humanity before they were told to take aspirin every single day.

For more scientific explanations on how to enhance your health naturally with supplements, vitamins, and just simply paying more attention to what you’re eating and drinking and how it effects your life, check out Dr. Blaylock’s bookHealth and Nutrition Secrets.
