[Alert] Controversial Meds DESTROY Your Immune System

If you’re a longtime friend or reader, you already know my take on opioid meds.

They’ve been linked to everything from addiction… to deadly overdose… to debilitating heart conditions… but still, mainstream docs just KEEP HANDING THEM OUT!

It’s maddening…

Like they don’t even CARE that we’re in the middle of a drug crisis.

But now, the latest research could FINALLYmake them take notice…

Because a brand-new study has found that on top of leaving life-ruining addiction and abuse in their wake, prescription opioids are quietly DISABLINGyour immune system and leaving you DEFENSELESSagainst disease…

So, if the drugs don’t kill you, something else will.

Let’s look at the research… and see if we can’t get some peopleto face the facts.

In the study, published in JAMA Internal Medicineearlier this month, Yale University-led researchers analyzed the medical records of 25,000 American veterans who received care or treatment through the Veterans Health Administration.

And they found some shocking results.

Patients prescribed medium or high doses of an opioid painkiller were at DRAMATICALLY increased risk of community-acquired, hospital-grade pneumonia…

Again, that’s PNEUMONIA, the advanced respiratory infection that KILLS about 50,000 people per year!

Compared to folks not on an opioid, even just the MINIMUM increase was ASTRONIMCAL…

And depending on what kind of drug they were taking, the risks only went up from there.

Experts seem to agree this occurs because many opioids – notably codeine, fentanyl, and morphine prescribed for pain – have immunosuppressive properties.They actuallylimit the body’s ability to fend off and fight existing infections, like pneumonia, by inhibiting cough, mucus production, and other processes that help expel foreign bacteria.

It’s like the painkillers flip a switch and shut off those all-important immune functions…

But there’s an easy way to turn them back on.

All you have to do is talk with your doc about stopping your current opioid regimen.

I know it can seem daunting, especially if you think you NEEDthe drugs to manage intense chronic pain, but studies show that tons of alternative treatments can also do the job – WITHOUT fear of addiction or life-threatening pneumonia.

Supplementing with ginger or curcumin(the substance behind turmeric’s golden hue) can help ease joint and muscle aches caused by damaging inflammation, while acupuncturehas been used to relieve pain for centuries.

Just don’t turn to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (or NSAIDs) like ibuprofen or aspirin, because as I told you last week, they come with their own risks of infection.
