Pharmaceutical Production And Ingredients
Proteins are a part of every cell in the body. They help the body to build and repair cells and tissues.
Proteins are responsible for nearly every task of cellular life, including cell shape and inner organization, product manufacture, waste cleanup and routine maintenance.
Proteins are made up of hundreds or thousands of smaller units-molecules, called amino acids, attached to one another in long chains.
They are coded by our genes and form the basis of living tissues.
Genes And Chromosomes-videos / Molecule Examples-videos / Images
There are 20 different types of amino acids that can be combined to make a protein. The sequence of amino acids determines each protein’s unique 3-dimensional structure and its specific function.
Proteins play a central role in biological processes. They catalyze reactions in our bodies, transport molecules such as oxygen, help maintain a healthy immune system, transmit messages from cell to cell, receive signals from outside the cell and mobilize inter/intra-cellular responses.

*Pharmacists Will Say; That, “Different Brand-Opioid Prescription Products, Are All The Same And That There Is No Difference Between Them.”
That’s, A Lie!
*The Same Drug/Prescription Medication
From A Different Manufacturer
Has Different Side Effects.
*Opioid prescription products made by different drug manufacturers always look different, generic or brand name.
The packaging looks different. Brand name and color of packaging different.
This is because of the different, in-active ingredients, that are used.
Pharmacists are referring to; the active ingredients, in the medication being the same.
Prescriptions/products made by the same manufacturer, or one of the manufacturer’s subsidiaries, will also, look different.
*With Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, There Is The Use Of, An Extensive Selection/Variety, Of In-Active Ingredients
These In-Active Ingredients Are Blended, With The Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients, To Create The Final Blend That Is Used For The Finished, Solid Dosage, Form.
Ethyl Alcohol Is The Most Common Type Of Alcohol Used In Medication.
Ethyl Alcohol Is Sometimes Referred To As Grain Alcohol. (Not, correct. It can, be produced from grains, corn, wheat. How we commonly identify alcohol being naturally manufactured).
*Instead; as a substitute, in pharmaceuticals, ethyl alcohol is used. Synthesized, from natural gas.
The majority of ethyl alcohol is produced, from ethylene. Ethylene is a hydrocarbon. It has four atoms of hydrogen bonds that are paired with carbon atoms with a double bond.
*It’s a process of manipulating the molecules of some chemicals; to create clone type, pain drugs. Different shaped molecules, react with the body differently.
Molecules are made up of atoms that are held together by chemical bonds. These bonds form as a result of the sharing or exchange of electrons among atoms. The atoms of certain elements readily bond with other atoms to form molecules. How Atoms Exchange Electrons/Carbon Atoms Videos
Danger Of Ethanol “Rhetorical Question?”
Ethanol-Ethylene, Is A Poison To The Body!
Ethanol Is A Central Nervous System Depressant.
Ethyl Alcohol A colorless, volatile, flammable liquid C2H5OHa. The intoxicating agent in cheap “rot gut” liquor. Used, as a preservative in pharmaceutical preparations.
Lot of demand for natural gas. Apparently, it’s used for more than heating homes or running a stove. Marcellus Shale Reality Tour What will they all do when the gas and petroleum, runs out? (Natural Gas Reserves By Country 2021).
There needs to be a complete overhaul concerning the transparency about the contents of “opioid” pain medications, by Doctors and Pharmacists with Patients.

Before Taking Pain Type Or Any Medication: Discuss With Your Doctor-Your allergies, medical history, surgeries, medical conditions, (family history-allergies, medical conditions). Any medications or over the counter drugs you take, and how to safely use the medication prescribed. Questions To Ask Your Doctor Or Pharmacist About Your Drug Prescription / Drug Side Effects Explained
Find and keep a good Doctor. Someone you can get to know and trust. A yearly checkup is a smart idea. Preventive medicine is so important, and you build a relationship with the Doctor. Then, they are not just some random person who doesn’t know you, or you, them. Same goes for developing a relationship with a good pharmacy. Communication In Healthcare
A problem with the miscommunications in prescribing pain medications is stereotyping. A fixed general image, generalized belief, set of characteristics that are accepted as true, to represent a particular type of person or group. It is presumed they will all behave in a particular way. An opinion. A fixed general idea. Videos

Prostaglandins are a group of chemicals that are produced by the cells of the body and have several important functions. Prostaglandins (PG); Physiologically active lipid compounds called eicosanoids.
They have diverse hormone-like effects. Prostaglandins, are like hormones in that they act as chemical messengers, but do not move to other sites. Working within the cells where they are synthesized.
Prostaglandins are found in almost every tissue in humans and other animals. They are derived enzymatically from the fatty acid-arachidonic acid. (Physiological-consistent with an organism's normal functioning). Essential Fatty Acids-Functions/Animation Youtube auto-plays
Prostaglandins: promote inflammation that is necessary for healing, but also results in pain and fever.
Prostaglandins support the blood clotting function of platelets and protect the lining of the stomach from the damaging effects of acid.
They are produced within the body's cells by the enzyme cyclooxygenase (COX).
There are two COX enzymes, COX-1 and COX-2. Both enzymes produce prostaglandins that promote inflammation, pain and fever.
Only COX-1 produces prostaglandins that support platelets and protect the stomach.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) block the COX enzymes and reduce prostaglandins throughout the body. As a consequence, ongoing inflammation, pain, and fever are reduced.
Since the prostaglandins that protect the stomach and support platelets and blood clotting also are reduced, NSAIDs can cause ulcers in the stomach and promote bleeding. medicine.net

The Synapse Is The Point Of Communication-Between One Neuron And A Neighboring Neuron, Muscle Cell, Or Gland Cell.
At A Synapses, One Neuron Sends A Message-To A Target Neuron, In Another Cell.
There are trillions of synapses in the brain. Each one of more than 100 billion neurons may be connected to hundreds of other cells by as many as10,000 synapses.
At a chemical synapse, an action potential triggers the presynaptic neuron to release neurotransmitters.
Other synapses are electrical. In these synapses, ions flow directly between cells.

Drugs Interfere With The Way Neurons Send, Receive, And Process Signals via Neurotransmitters. The Science Of Opioids Youtube auto-plays
Neurons talk to each other using special chemicals called neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are like chemical words, sending “messages” from one neuron to another neuron.
There are certain types of proteins called receptors. Receptors are large protein molecules embedded in the cell wall or membrane.
Receptors embed in cell surfaces. They receive chemical information from other molecules, drugs, hormones or neurotransmitters outside the cell. These receptors can be enzymes, nucleic acids, or proteins that are bound to special membranes. Pharmacogenetics Of Drug Receptors
Drugs work by interacting with receptors on the surface of cells or enzymes within cells. Receptor and enzyme molecules have a specific three-dimensional structure that allows only substances that precisely attach to them.
A drug receptor is a specific target macromolecule that binds to a drug and mediates its pharmacological process. They are composed of thousands of covalently bonded atoms. Many macromolecules are polymers of smaller molecules called monomers.
The formation of drug-receptor complexes leads to biological reactions. The intensity of the reaction is proportional to the number of drug-receptor complexes.
Both Endomorphins and Tetrapeptides can be found in certain areas of the brain. Tetrapeptide
In the midbrain, endomorphin-1 can be found in the hypothalamus, thalamus, and striatum. Within the telencephalon, endomorphin-1 has been identified in the nucleus accumbens and lateral septum.
In the hindbrain, more endomorphin-1 reactive neurons have been detected compared to endomorphin-2.
Endomorphin-2 is predominantly found in the spinal cord, specifically in presynaptic terminals of afferent neurons in the dorsal horn region.
It has been found co-localized with calcitonin as well as the pain-conveying neurotransmitter, substance P.

Protein is present in many different forms in the body and has many different functions. Each protein has a specific function and is specific to the type of cell on which it functions. What Proteins Do
Despite this wide range of functions, all proteins are made out of the same twenty-one amino acids, combined in different ways.
The way these twenty-one amino acids are arranged, dictates the folding of the protein into its unique final shape.
Since protein function is based on the ability to recognize and bind to specific molecules, having the correct shape is critical for proteins to do their jobs correctly.
There are Different Receptors For Different Types Of Cells.
Liver cells have different receptors than heart cells.
The receptor binds to other proteins and chemicals outside the cell, which, in turn, changes how the cell functions.
Proteins also work on drug targets. For a drug to take effect, it must be protein-bound. It can be considered a lock and key system.
Once the drug is attached to the receptor, it can have two important effects on the cell. It can produce a change in the response from the cell, or stop a normal response from the cell.
If a protein produces a change in the response, this will be called agonist, and if it stops the response, it will be known as antagonist.
Agonist Drugs A drug or substance that binds to a receptor inside a cell or on its surface and causes the same action as the substance that normally binds to the receptor.
Antagonist Drugs An antagonist is a drug that blocks opioids by attaching to the opioid receptors without activating them. Antagonists cause no opioid effect and block full agonist opioids.
Receptor Blockers; Stop, All Naturally Occurring Endorphin Functions.

An Holistic Approach To Addiction Treatment. A Whole Person Approach, To Health Care. Simultaneous Focus On The Mind And Body For Complete Healing. An opportunity for patients to better attend to both their psychological and physical needs.
I agree with the Holistic Approach, except for some procedures. No acupuncture. I do not believe in using needles, except when absolutely necessary, given by a trusted, Doctor. Acupressure is better. No hypnosis (unsafe). Never let anyone mess with the mind. They could leave a post-hypnotic suggestion.

Doctors say they don't want to prescribe too much opioid meds because they could kill.
Then, these doctors, prescribe the fentanyl, with more chemicals. Adding drugs, so strong, they can definitely kill, all on their own, without fentanyl! Even when, not misused. Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) To Avoid
Many Patients who need pain care are either treated like “drug seekers,” or stupid. Our pain, often dismissed.

Drug Seekers Profile (I was an “easy mark,” 17 in 1967). Or so, they figured.
Can either explain their medical history completely or is very vague about medical history. I can give details regarding my medical history and I’m not a drug seeker.
Not interested in their diagnosis and has no interest in further testing or referrals. Besides three mri’s, I even had that test where they stick electrodes in your body and there’s an electrical shock. To check muscle something. I have no idea. But hurt.

I had a torn rotator cuff and an injury to the 4th, 5th, and 6th, cervical vertebrae. And a partially slipped cervical disc. With 3 MRIs to prove it.
The Doctors never told me about the bulging disc, They, never even gave me a neck brace. I found out, when the disc slipped back into place about 5 years later. I was carrying a gallon of water in each hand and stepped up a curb, I felt my head, neck, go up and down, like a pez dispenser.

Say they have psychological symptoms, depression, insomnia, or anxiety. Symptoms like this, are often caused by the in-active ingredients in some opioid prescriptions.
Back in NJ I was getting clinical depression from the pain medications the doctors were prescribing. It’s horrible! Like a light goes out in one’s brain and no matter what they do, can’t get it to go back on!
Say that over-the-counter pain relievers don't work, or that they are allergic to them.
*My problem Had my gallbladder removed in 2003 and since then, I’m allergic to all the pharmaceutical salts, acids, ethyl alcohols, nsaids too-(put me in a coma practically). They all, inflame my entire body. Hives, liver, kidney, irritation and many other side effects.
It’s Basic Biology The gallbladder is a small hollow organ, that holds bile salts from food, or anything else ingested in the body, either orally, or transdermally.
Bile is released into the stomach when food is eaten to aid digestion. The reason most oral prescription drugs say, “take with food.” Images Bile Duct-Gallbladder
Without a gallbladder, bile salts drip into the stomach continually. Digestive System Parts And Functions
I had severe adverse-allergic reactions to all the pain pills prescribed. I gave at least, 25 full bottles of these opioid pain prescriptions, with two or three pills used, back to the Doctors in NJ (believe it or not). Either the prescriptions did nothing for the pain, just got me disoriented, or they inflamed my entire body.
Fentanyl Patch I found out about the fentanyl transdermal patch from a Rite Aid Store Pharmacist after I told her how I was having such severe reactions to all the pain pills. She was a good Pharmacist. One; that a Patient could have confidence in.
*There is a version of the fentanyl patch, without all the, in-active ingredients. It contains only Fentanyl and the silicone patch is made of. Ask your Doctor about it. It’s a Mylan-brand generic.
Problem With fentanyl patch is; as with prescription oral drugs, (pills). There are, many different versions and various brands, that contain, many different types of additional, harsh, in-active ingredients. Fentanyl transdermal patches especially, do not, list all the in-active ingredients.
I had the just fentanyl patch first prescription and then the Doctor (Neurosurgeon in NJ), changed it, to one with heavy-duty in-active ingredients NSAIDs.
FYI-Medical Definition Of Black Box (Black Strip)
A Warning “Attention” To Serious Side Effects! Serious Or Life-Threatening Side Effects Possible.
Highlighted by a black border on a prescription drug's package, accompanying literature. Found on over 600 prescription medications packaging. ie On bottom of a fentanyl transdermal patch box.
The “Black Box” Strip, Is Also To Indicate; Contains, NSAIDs.
The FDA took the following actions on all prescription NSAID labels, adding a “black box” warning highlighting the potential for increased risk for cardiovascular events and serious life-threatening gastrointestinal bleeding, ulceration and perforation. Images
A "Black Box" Warning Is The Most Serious Warning, Placed In The Labeling Of A Prescription Medication!
The FDA requires the boxed warning to provide a concise summary of the adverse effects and risks associated with taking the medication.
A Patient and Physician need to be aware of this information. Example Naproxen Black Box Warning
NSAID drugs and ethyl alcohols have no place in a transdermal, fentanyl patch. They are too strong.
The pharmaceutical salts and acids contained in the pill form, helps to, evaporate them.
With transdermal, it’s a constant drip. Didn’t work for me. Even if I could tolerate these in-active chemicals physically, which I cannot. I was practically comatose; the adverse reaction was so severe.
*What HCL On A Prescription Bottle Means “HCL” stands for Hydrochloride, the most common salt used to formulate medication.
Hydrochloric Acid Aqueous (water-based) solution of the gas, hydrogen chloride. A compound of the element's hydrogen and chlorine. A gas at room temperature and pressure. A solution of the gas in water is called hydrochloric acid.
Hydrogen chloride may be formed by the combination of chlorine CL2 and hydrogen H2, by the combination of chlorine and hydrogen gas.
Some Doctors act as if It should never be, that a Patient get pain relief without additional, more dangerous and mind-numbing chemicals.
Paradoxically, ignoring the side-effects, discomfort and destruction the in-active ingredients cause!
I often wonder what medications these Doctors would prescribe for themselves, or for a person, they cared about?
Seems like some Doctors skipped class, the day they taught the Hippocratic Oath in Medical School.
My Story Still impossible to get pain relief that I could tolerate physically.
After dealing with Doctors in NJ for three years, I gave up and went around, still in chronic pain, from 2003 until 2014. I moved to another state and tried again, to get help.
In pain all these years, my second try with Doctors and Pharmacists.
This time: without telling me, a certain, Pharmacy/Pharmacist(s), began switching around, with all the numerous, different versions of this fentanyl patch.
Switching from an original, no alcohol formula prescription, to one with 2% ethyl alcohol contained in the patch. Doctors and Pharmacists think the fentanyl patch, is what drug seekers want. So they load them, with all the NSAIDs, Ethyl Alcohols and other in-active ingredients.
I have had painful, violent, side-effects and adverse, physical reactions on and off. Severe edema, several times. I advised the doctors and pharmacy (pharmacists), of this problem. Finally, after they’re being forced to return to my original no alcohol version, fentanyl patch, they dropped me. Said, pharmacy was not purchasing/stocking, my brand medication anymore.
I always followed prescription instructions. It’s good to fear all these drugs, they are, deadly.
Two Examples Drugs I Had Severe Adverse Reactions To
Generic “Duragesic“ Fentanyl Patches-Loaded with synthetic alcohols. The system contains an external backing layer, a reservoir of fentanyl and ethyl alcohol, USP gelled with hydroxyethyl cellulose, an ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer membrane and a protective liner.
Translation “synthesized natural gas, synthesized natural gas, synthesized natural gas!”
Tramadol It May Be A Class 4 Narcotic, But Tramadol Is Perilous!
A Doctor prescribed Tramadol to me once. After 3 days and only 3 pills, in total, I felt like my brain was melting, literally! My brain didn’t feel right, normal for a long time, months, a year.
I immediately stopped taking the Tramadol. This is a drug I most certainly, would not, want to fall into anyone’s hands. I flushed the rest of the bottle. Even though they say, not to flush drugs, I couldn’t get back to Doctor or Pharmacist, to return the prescription and had no other choice. Drug Disposal Take Back Locations. The best way to safely dispose of most types of unused or expired drugs Tramadol Side Effects
At least with pills they have names and one can look them up in a directory of pain meds.
With pills, if a Patient has a reaction, they usually know immediately. Unlike a transdermal drip, where allergic reactions may take more time, doses, to appear and then be so severe, they’re debilitating. I still can’t tolerate these chemicals, even, transdermally (patch). No matter how ingested, it all exits the same way. Through the stomach, liver, pancreas, kidneys. I’m not even a Doctor and I know that.
I gave these Pharmacists a list of my allergies, (as I provide to all Doctors, etc). Alcohol, penicillin, sulphur drugs and glycerin are at the top of the list.
Some people have medical identification bracelets. I have a list-of extreme allergies. Free Alert Bracelets.
Either these un-scrupulous individuals didn’t care, or they have no idea what they’re prescribing/dispensing. It’s hard to believe that they aren’t aware of the dangers, since some Pharmacists go to College studying pharmacological medicine, for up to, 8 years!
Pharmacists have a lot of unseen power. They can scrutinize Doctors and ban them. Refusing to serve any of their Patients.
*Unless the Doctor specifies prescribe as written-do not substitute, or medically necessary; Pharmacists are allowed by law, even negligently, to change a Patient’s prescription to a different brand. Disregarding, other in-active ingredients contained in the varying brands. Pharmacists are not, required to disclose the switch/difference, to the Patient.
This is Called Therapeutic Substitution. Also called, Drug Switching and Therapeutic Interchange.
Replacing a patient's prescription medications, in-active ingredients, with chemically different in-active ingredients (drugs). These replacement drugs are expected to have the same clinical effect.
This “Drug Switching” Is Not Ok. Should Not Be Allowed!
The FDA doesn't dictate which drug products may be substituted or dispensed for one another. Regulations vary, State to State in US.
Supposedly, if there’s less than 2% in-active ingredients contained in the formula, they’re not required by law to disclose this information about which, in-active ingredients are in the medication. It’s written on that tiny print insert, in with the medications.

Prescribing Authority Some states allow Pharmacists to prescribe medications, adjust drug therapy, administer vaccines, and perform lab tests. Some have standing orders, while others require an advanced license for Pharmacists.
Pharmacists take home a sizable salary. On average, Pharmacists make $121,500 annually. The lowest 10% an average of $89,790, the highest 10% earn more than $154,040. Pharmacy Technician $31,750.
Apparently, Doctors and Pharmacists don’t comprehend a Patient’s pain. Would think their training should enable them to identify-recognize, a Patient in pain?
I noticed that back in NJ. I was like; ”they have to be able to look at me and see the extreme pain, I’m in.” Nope. It took 3 Doctors, 3 years to even notice, my gallbladder was falling out besides, my injuries were never resolved.
Now, I just found out that, NJ Doctors (2000-03), left me walking around all these years, with a dislocated arm.
I know; because the Nurse who recently treated me, pushed it back in place. She had one of the other Nurses do it. Probably when they were taking my blood pressure and I was distracted.
A few days later, I heard a pop in my shoulder and another, in the arm. Now the screaming nerve pain I’ve had for over 20 years, is gone.
Then, this nurse practitioner, proceeded to almost kill me with the NSAID drugs. Meanwhile, lying all the time. What was the purpose of this? To continue to prescribe these drugs when she knew the dangers, being a nurse. I asked her why the black stripe, she gave me some evasive lie again.
I kept telling her they were putting me in a coma like state and for months she lied and told me “She understood about my drug allergies and this time, the prescription contained, only the types of ingredients I could tolerate.”
After 5 months more, of violent side effects and my blood pressure skyrocketing to 210 final reading, “kiss yourself goodbye levels,” I finally realized this nurse(s) and clinic doctors were more sadistic , crazy medical practitioners! They all think they’re special, because they control the medications, that control a person’s pain.
Now after a year shoulder and arm feel better but am suffering from these drugs side effects and insides all inflamed. Legs and feet still swelling and burning. And I stopped taking any of these drugs over two years ago. Can’t eat food without burning reaction (legs and feet swelling).
Besides I’m pretty sure, I had two mini strokes (according to Google) and I actually fainted once. All from the NSAID drugs she prescribed.
This nurse knew I have a college degree. She was from NJ. Went to college 4 blocks away from mine. That I was not a typical drug seeker.
Hubris is the word to describe these supposed, medical types.
My Sister was a RN (Registered Nurse). She always said, “One Doctor, will never criticize another Doctor.” So, just pushing my arm back in place, was the easy way to fix my arm.
My Sister also said, “Some Doctors, have a God Complex,” True. I’ve learned; some Pharmacists, do, too. Very Important. Know Your Pharmacist As Well As You Know Your Doctor.
She would be 93. She was a very strong personality. An all-around Nurse; Hospital (assisted in the operating room, treated patients, etc). She was also a Visiting Nurse, in Asbury Park, NJ and a Nursing School Teacher.
Before that, she was a Volunteer Ambulance Driver, in Southern NJ for over 20 years.
*My Sister also told me, Patients Have The Right To Refuse Any Medical Procedure.
When I was getting MRI’s (NJ 2001) the Technician, very forcibly, aggressively, tried to convince me to have, what he called, a nuclear scan. For a torn rotator cuff and a partially bulging cervical disc? No, I Did Not!
I grew up trusting Doctors. I’ve known so many of the best. My Pediatrician who refused, to remove my tonsils as a child. Said they were needed, and I do have a very good immune system, still at my age (71).
Our family Doctor. One of the nicest people anywhere.
Our Eye Doctor. Such a nice man. His Son (also an Eye Doctor), saved my vision twice. I tried to clean with ammonia and got a cloud of it in my face and a different time I got pink eye.
Our longtime friends, Pharmacists, wonderful people and I grew up hearing, about many other Doctors my family knew.
Unfortunately for me, I was 50 years old, when I got hurt and they had all retired.
Then, I met, “Doctors, who supplement their incomes, treating pain” These Doctors, might be good surgeons, etc, but they know nothing about these pain drugs they're prescribing. Or they wouldn't prescribe 90% of them. There are, safer products-(oxymoron).
The reason, for all this research and post. So, these alleged, “professionals,” don’t pull this on and hurt, anyone else.
Against all the odds, being a teenager in the sixties, I’ve survived and I’m not going to let incompetent people, kill me now!

Honky-Tonk Bud-jailhouse poem (read slow, with bop style rhythm)
A Cautionary Tale.
Honky-Tonk Bud the Hip-Cat Stud, stood diggin’ a game of pool.
Now Honky wasn't braggin', but his bags was baggin and he was feelin' pretty cool.
It was the 15th frame, of a nine ball game, as Honky stood digging his play,
when with a sudden shrug, he suddenly dug, this strange cat coming his way.
This cat, was a funny time cat and he wore a funny time hat.
He wanted to know where Joe was.
Honky said, “Joe’s not around, his bags are down and he ain’t feelin’ too cool,
But if you’re wantin’ to cop some sigh, I’ll cop for you,
Cause I’m Honky-Tonk Bud, the Hip-Cat Stud, from Venice Avenue."
And in five seconds flat, Honky was back, pourin’ out smack from a cellophane sack.
Honky looked at the funny lookin’ guy and says, “Jim, I’m high."
Jim says, “That’s Cool, Cause; Dig Honky, It's The FBI."
After three long years at San Quentin, Honky-Tonk Bud the Hip-Cat Stud was again, diggin’ a game of pool. Now Honky wasn't braggin' but his bags was baggin' and once again, he was feelin' pretty cool.
It was the fifteenth frame of a nine-ball game when, out the corner of his eye,
who should he spy, but that same funny lookin’ guy. He wanted to know where Joe was.
Honky says, “Joe’s not around, his bags are down and he ain’t feelin’ too cool. And if you’re wantin’ to cop some sigh, I’ll tell you right now, Jim, You A Damn Fool! ”
I researched and wrote this, so people can easily see, how drugs kill (video auto plays).
To illustrate, how drugs interfere, with the body’s natural functioning.
Killing; Immediately-overdose, quickly-misadventure, or over time-with the corrosive, ingredients.
Most people don’t have a clue, about what they’re doing, putting, in their bodies.
I read fentanyl, along with heroin and many, many, other drugs, was a big problem on the streets. That opioids are addicting and killing many young people and older ones too.
Heroin may stop the heart, but pharmaceutical drugs also, stop the brain and that’s a lot harder to start up again.
Besides Death, Another Terrifying Occurrence Would Be, A Stroke!
Statistics indicate, some of these pharmaceutical opioid and other similar drugs, could have a causal effect. Hemorrhagic Stroke / Ischaemic Stroke / Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) Mini Stroke
Pharmaceutical drugs travel in the body through the spinal cord, into the brain stem and cerebellum, where all brain functions are controlled.
The spinal cord is a complex organization of nerve cells responsible for movement and sensation. It carries signals between the brain and the rest of the body.
For instance, this is the process of any type of sleep. Deep sleep happens through signals from the pons, which is located at the base of the brain. This is, where signals to the spinal cord shut off. Pons Videos
It seems apparent that an overdose, especially with pharmaceutical-pain and sedative type drugs, is, quite problematic!

These Prescription Opioid Drugs Are Unstable And Unsafe!
Petrochemicals are used to manufacture analgesics, antihistamines, antibiotics, antibacterial, cough syrups, creams, ointments, salves, and many gels. Petrochemicals are used in radiological dyes and films, intravenous tubing, syringes, and oxygen masks.
So many caustic chemicals, included in these substances! Almost all pharmaceutical pain drugs contain Ethyl Alcohol or NSAIDs, with more Ingredients. like pharmaceutical salts and acids. The list of harsh chemicals, is endless!
Caustics are usually hydroxides. Sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide are the most widely used caustic agents in the pharmaceutical industry. Alkaline chemicals, that can destroy soft body tissues, if amounts are not scientifically controlled. Resulting in a deep, penetrating type of burn. In contrast to corrosives, that result in a more superficial type of damage, via chemical means or inflammation.
Drug Salts And Acids Used In Pharmaceutical Manufacturing; hydrochloride (15.5%), sulfate (4%), chloride (1.8%), acetate (2.5%), phosphate or diphosphate (1.9%), potassium (1.6%), nitrate (0.9%), aluminum (0.7%), maleate (1.4%), calcium (1.3%,), mesylate (1%), tartrate (0.8%), gluconate (0.7%), citrate (1.2%)-A citrate; is a derivative of citric acid,-the salts, esters, and the polyatomic anion found in solution. (IUPAC Name) beta-hydroxytricarballylic acid.
So many pharmaceutical versions and formulas. One can never be certain what it is, they’re getting in these drugs. It ain’t nothing good, for sure! Countless, horrible, different, in-active ingredients.

Reasons For Pain
Why Opioids Make Pain Worse/Videos Use of opioid pills for more than 4 weeks, makes the body more sensitive to pain. That makes the pain worse.
Opioids provide relief by blocking pain. But then, the body reacts by increasing the number of receptors to try to get the pain signal through again.
When the drug wears off, a person will experience more pain. If they continue to take opioids, the pills become less and less effective.
The pain keeps increasing not because of an injury, but due to the opioids themselves.
Probably caused by all the synthetic chemicals, starting to destroy and deplete the body’s natural chemicals like calcium, hormones, cells, molecules, etc.
Different genetics, weight, body chemistry, physical health condition, and other factors, could result in differences in how medications are absorbed, metabolized and eliminated from the body.
Homeostasis A Balance Among All The Body Systems. It is needed for the body to survive and function correctly. A property of cells, tissues, and organisms that allows the maintenance and regulation of the stability and constancy needed to function properly.
A healthy state that is maintained by the constant adjustment of biochemical and physiological pathways. An example of homeostasis is the maintenance of a constant blood pressure in the human body through a series of fine adjustments in the normal range of function of the hormonal - neuromuscular videos - definition / cardiovascular systems.
These adjustments allow the maintenance of blood pressure needed for body function despite environmental changes and changes in a person's activity level and position. Homeostatic Mechanism / Homeostatic Imbalance
Metabolism The molecular basis of how the body self-regulates. Disturbances in balances can lead to disease. Cardiovascular exercise (running, swimming, aerobics, walking), stimulates your metabolism.
Hormones Chemicals that coordinate different functions in your body by carrying messages through your blood, to your organs, skin, muscles and other tissues. These signals tell your body what to do and when to do it. They are chemical messengers released from endocrine glands that influence the nervous system to regulate the physiology and behavior of individuals. Hormones affect nearly every process in your body.
The Endocrine System Is made up of several organs called glands. These glands, located all over The body, create and secrete (release) hormones. The endocrine system continuously monitors the amount of hormones in a person’s blood. Hormones deliver their messages by locking into the cells they target so they can relay the message. Videos
The Pituitary Gland Senses when your hormone levels rise, and tells other glands to stop producing and releasing hormones. When hormone levels dip below a certain point, the pituitary gland can instruct other glands to produce and release more. Videos

Natural Victorian Cure For Drug Addiction From 1890. To rid yourself of a drug addiction, eat an orange every morning half an hour before breakfast. Do that and you will want neither liquor nor medicine, they will, even, become repulsive. Not that it takes much too be repulsed after having to take this garbage, called pain medications. Educating oneself as to what type of poison this stuff really is, should be enough, to repulse anyone!
I tried it. Works really good. First orange; I felt a click in my brain, top left side of my head. I continued; an orange a day, (sometimes two), or whenever, I felt ill. I was much better and emotionally comfortable, during prescription fentanyl .25mcg, cold turkey withdrawal-Symptoms. I presume most people would be properly detoxed first.
I like the mandarin, clementine oranges. They’re small, sweet and easy to peel. Navel oranges are sweet too. All oranges should be soft, to be ripe and sweet. Grapes are good also. A glass of water; an hour before breakfast has many health benefits.
I found that a cup of black style tea, is very soothing and it’s very beneficial helping to eliminate toxins and fluids from the body. . I drink my tea straight, no milk or lemon. Sweetened with sucralose. I don’t use green tea, I always found it somewhat harsh and had allergic reactions to it.

How To Deal With Psychopaths
Run Away Immediately! They never expect you, to run.
A Kossack told me once, it’s better never to put yourself in a situation, where you need to run. True; Common Sense, Rules.
Since we cannot control everything that happens. I still say, if one feels endangered, just take off in a run, fast!
Don’t run, from Police, obviously. With them; just stand there, with your hands up and hope you don’t faint, or make any erratic movements.
Anytime, anywhere, be aware of your surroundings (check where all the exits are, if inside) and know when to run, not just, if a psycho is chasing you.
Running saved my life, several times. Here are a few examples. Space does not permit recounting all the times, just running, saved me.
I think two guys in a car tried to mug me once, back in the eighties.
Right off Second Avenue; the middle of 8th St, in NYC’s Greenwich Village.
Scenario It’s daytime and I’m walking down the street, a million dollar or more-per apartment, building, condo, to my left, when this car stops for the red light. Going east (a drug area).
Two guys in the car. The window’s open and the one on the passenger side, calls or motions to me. I start to walk over, stupid, I know. It was, broad daylight, about 4pm, warm sunny day, rush hour. Streets full of people. Then, I see the guy, reach down towards the floor, under the seat.
I Instantly; turned and ran, in the opposite direction. That guy could easily have been reaching for a gun and told me “stick em up,” and took off, with the light changing.
Another time I was walking down the street. NYC again and I see this car being towed by a chain, not a regular tow bar.
My mind said, “that’s unsafe” and I took off running. My mind was right. Not 2 minutes later, the chain towing the car broke and the car went careening into the sidewalk. Exactly, where I would have been standing, had I continued walking. I was a quarter of a block away, by then.
Another time I was walking, when I heard a wizzing sound. I looked up and see this glass soda bottle falling from a very tall building 10 floors at least. Looked like a 7up bottle but I didn’t stick around long enough to investigate.
Again, I took off running. As the bottle crashed to the sidewalk behind me. (NYC, uptown).
Life is dangerous enough, without adding drugs or alcohol. Sometimes, one might need to be alert and fast!
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
Fire Safety And The Dangers Of Artificial Fragrances; In Everyday, Household Products.
Air fresheners can be flammable, depending on how they are used.
Air freshening chemicals themselves are not usually flammable, but some use propellant chemicals that are highly flammable.
So, if you use a spray air freshener, it is probably flammable and can catch fire.
It’s important to check the packaging on any air freshener you buy and see what exactly it says about flammability.
It is always best to assume that a product is flammable unless it explicitly says otherwise. How Fast Does Fire Spread? Firefighter Insider
Never try to put a candle out with water! Smother it with a lid.
Fire Cannot Exist Without Oxygen.
Always keep a small all-purpose fire extinguisher nearby. Don’t use water on electrical oil, or grease, fires. If it’s an appliance cord, in a smoking outlet, unplug it, leave the house immediately and call 911.
To put out a grease fire when cooking, Put A Cover On The Pan, Immediately! An open box of baking soda near the stove is good too, to help smother it.

VOCs within diffused essential oils can affect indoor air quality causing the same pollutant effect as air fresheners, scented candles, and incense. Essential Oils That Are Harmful To Pets
Fragrance’ is an umbrella term and can include many, many chemicals that are mixed together, usually to mask the smell of the other gross toxins in the product.
How fragrance harms our health: Fragrance is linked to allergies, asthma, other respiratory concerns and hormone disruptions.
Formaldehyde is a chemical used in many household products and building materials. It’s also used as a fungicide, disinfectant and preservative in medical labs.
How formaldehyde harms our health: Immediate reactions might include skin irritations, coughing, burning in the eyes, nose and throat, or nausea. But the long-term effects can be much worse.
The Environmental Protection Agency says that chronic exposure can be linked to allergic contact dermatitis, respiratory lesions and even cancer. More specifically, the National Cancer Institute outlines studies where researchers have found links between formaldehyde and leukemia.
Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is an additive found in a wide variety of processed foods, but it’s also used in cosmetics, cleaning products and in petroleum products.
How BHT harms our health: The David Suzuki Foundation outlines a wide range of effects BHT can have on us. It can potentially damage our livers and kidneys. It can mimic the effects of estrogen and inhibit male sex hormones. And it can promote the growth of tumors.
While this compound is found naturally in nature and is produced by the body, it is also used synthetically in perfumes and dyes, as a preservative in fruit and fish, and as a solvent in the rubber, tanning and paper industries.
How acetaldehyde harms our health: This ingredient, according to the Environmental Working Group, is connected to allergies, asthma, cancer and skin and respiratory irritation.
According to a study conducted by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), 86% of air fresheners tested contained phthalates.
Phthalates, which are also found in many plastics, aerosol sprays, paints, pesticides, cosmetics, and fragrances, are known to be, extremely disruptive to the body.
Dangers Of Endocrine Disruptors. Phthalates are on the State of California’s list of toxic substances.
The NRDC The Natural Resources Defense Council warns that airborne phthalates can cause allergic symptoms and asthma. Even trace amounts of phthalates can accumulate to cause these harmful side-effects.
What happens if you breathe in essential oils? When you inhale essential oils, the odor molecules trigger thousands of receptors in the olfactory membrane inside your nose. These molecules then travel along the chemo-sensory pathway, immediately triggering the limbic system, also known as the “emotional brain.”
I’m The Canary In The Coal Mine, Regarding Chemicals.
One whiff and I’m intoxicated. Some of these scents cause a feeling of severe pressure in the arteries in my brain, like they’re, taking my head off.
With further exposure, my brain stem gets numb and the numbness travels all around the outside of my head and my nose gets numb. I lose strength in my muscles, get wobbly and my balance becomes problematic.
I immediately start to yawn, have trouble breathing and then I get totally overcome and sleepy. When I sleep feels more like being unconscious.
Continual exposure and I have episodes when my heart races and I get sharp pains.
Yes, in my mis-spent youth and generally growing up in the sixties in NJ, an hour away by bus and path train, to NYC Manhattan, it’s a miracle I’m alive. “Lucky,” is my gift. That and all the good people I met along the way who helped me.
Consequently, I have several head injuries, no gallbladder. And a doctor told me I was diabetic. Probably to cover-up, nj doctors incompetence and they're almost killing me with those, “only a chemist really, knows what they are,” pain meds.
Then recently, with my last try to get help from doctors, they totally destroyed my insides. This bunch were stupid enough; to put synthetic, ethyl alcohol in the prescriptions. Besides, all the other chemicals. As previously detailed earlier in this post (above).
I kept telling them, “I always heard that diabetics shouldn’t use alcohol?” And they kept ignoring me, arguing and lying.
Now, I’m the “poster child,” for chemical sensitivities and food allergies And I’m here, telling the world. So, this doesn’t happen to anyone else.
I think the chemical ingredients-information, about what is actually, contained in these products, should be enough to let everyone make an informed decision.
