Polypharmacy Raises Drug Side Effects Exponentially
Limit your exposure to toxins of all kinds. The number of toxic
chemicals and their sources is so large, addressing them all could easily
require an entire library, but I believe you can help you keep your toxic
load as low as possible by becoming an informed and vigilant consumer. This
includes tossing out your toxic household cleaners, soaps, personal hygiene
products, air fresheners, bug sprays, lawn pesticides, and insecticides, just
to name a few, and replacing them with non-toxic alternatives.
Get plenty of quality sleep. Scientists have discovered that your
circadian rhythms regulate the energy levels in your cells. In addition, the
proteins involved with your circadian rhythm and metabolism are intrinsically
linked and dependent upon each other. Therefore, when your circadian rhythm

example, research has also linked disrupted sleep cycles to serious health
problems like depression, coronary heart diseases, and even cancer.
If you have any kind of sleep problem, whether you’re having trouble
falling asleep or staying asleep, my article 33 Secrets to a Good Night's

circumstances -- such as with a drug that has gone through unbiased,
stringent, long-term testing -- anything can happen when a drug is released
into the uncontrolled environment of your body. It may interact badly with
another drug you're taking, or perhaps a food you eat causes an unforeseen
reaction, or maybe your genetic makeup, metabolism or the state of your
immune system will cause it to have an unpredictable impact.

In the case of prescription medications, the “product” is a potentially
dangerous chemical that may do more harm than good. This is certainly the
case with statins. One in four Americans are now taking a statin, when the
