You’ve probably heard about the Opioid Crisis, which is taking the lives of about 115 Americans each day, and approximately 40,000 each year.
Yet, it’s not the abuse of street drugs that’s the primary driver behind this disaster. According to the NIH, “In the late 1990’s, pharmaceutical companies reassured the medical community that patients would not become addicted to prescription opioid pain relievers, and healthcare providers began to prescribe them at greater rates. This subsequently led to widespread diversion and misuse of these medications before it became clear that these medications could indeed be highly addictive.”
Pharmaceutical opioids are an atrocity. Did you now that Fentanyl is 75 times stronger than morphine? Can you imagine how much harder it is to ‘kick the habit,’ and how much easier it is to overdose?
That’s why natural alternatives are needed more than ever. We need pain-killers that aren’t addictive and don’t also kill the person in pain. That’s why our featured article below on cannabis as an alternative to opioids is so important, and why growing awareness around this powerful healing plant’s role in preventing and treating disease will literally save lives.
