Adrenals – The cause of damage is the link to major chronic illnesses. If you have kids between the ages of 10 and 23 years old, you definitely need to watch this! The following top 4 medications could potentially cause problems with the adrenal glands and cause permanent damage. Please share this information!
One of the biggest myths lurking our society: Just because a medication can be purchased over the counter or by prescription, it is safe. Many people are prescribed medication by their doctor without doing research. What’s more, we’re giving them to our children. Accutane, Cortaid, Prednisone and Cortisone are all reaping havoc on you and your children’s health.
The Top 4 Medications:
Accutane causes a condition called Permanent Cell Apoptosis in the hypothalamus gland (cell death). Without the health of these cells, your hypo-thymus gland cannot communicate with your pituitary gland. This gland in turn cannot successfully communicate to the adrenal glands.
In addition, Prednisone and Cortisone create cortisol. This leads to the adrenals to stop making cortisol naturally. When this phenomenon occurs, the adrenals shut down and eventually become damaged.
Adrenal damage is linked to many chronic illnesses. These illnessess include thyroid disease, Addison’s disease, autoimmune disease, and obesity. My calling for nearly 20 years is to encourage people that with any ailment, we absolutely can be helped. By targeting the cause of the symptom, you do not have to necessarily succumb to medication that hurts you. Please keep this in mind before you choose to put harmful medications inside of your children.
