I have been a diabetic type 2 for almost 12 years. As time goes by I suffered a heart attack and a stroke therefore all the medications listed. Recently, I noticed an pain in the leg accompamied by extreme muscle stiffness on the feet
It has been recommended that I get the drug reclast for osteopenia. I have low liver function. I go to the gym three times each week and do weight exercises and walking. I do not drink alcohol or smoke. Because of my age (76) and the fact that I have precancerous esophagus, I have been told that I need reclast which is a biophosphate. I feel that I am in better shape than most others my age. Fractures do not run in my family.

This election will set the path to dramatically improve or further destroy our health system. ObamaCare has taken an already a disastrous system and made it much worse. The US has been rated #38 in healthcare where France is rated #1. Millions of Americans travel to France when they want a system that will not control their health problem, but cure it. We can have the same system in the US if the right candidate is elected for president. There is not a single politician that can improve our system without upsetting thousands of very powerful corporations and draining the Government of money. If any politicians tries, they will be forced to leave politics and destroy their own special interest groups. We have only one candidate that is not a politician and he must be elected to resolve a medical system that will continue to get worse. People choose every day to take drugs and expect them to help their symptoms without permanent side-effects. That expectation is not possible without those serious permanent side-effects. There are very few symptoms or diseases that need to be treated with drugs. More than 1/3 of the entire world population never take a single drugs and live a very health life. They only see a doctor in an emergency situation. All medical schools are now requiring medical doctors to take classes on alternative medicine, including nutrition supplements, homeopathy and herbology. In the US we now have well over 200,000 integrative medical doctors using alternative methods before prescribing drugs. Their success exceeds all other medical therapies. ObamaCare cannot be repaired and must be replaced!! One candidate is preying on the people with mental weakness, the lower class and neurological challenged. https://ehealth.me/groups/osteoarthritis/medical-lies-and-our-political-system https://ehealth.me/groups/pain/pain-depression-insomnia-depression-anxiety-fear-anger-insomnia https://ehealth.me/groups/mental-disorder/mental-illness-and-election If Americans vote for the wrong candidate, they will have to suffer the next 40 years and will get what they vote for!!
These health problems can be resolved without taking drugs that have serious side-effects. If you chose to take drugs, you are also choosing to accept the serious permanent side-effects. The side-effects are not optional and most of them go unseen until they are severe or life-threatening. Drugs did not exist at the inception of the human body, so why would you think the fix is placing a synthetic substance made by man into the body is the answer. The only thing that existed was sleep, food, herbs and water. There are no shortcuts to resolving the human condition that was extremely rare 50 years ago. Disease is primarily a concept of the 20th century. In the 19th century, dis-ease was normal, simple and often related to trauma or poisonous bites. Children are now born with serious, deadly diseases. This has only been an issue for the past 20 years. All countries in the world combined do not have the amount of disease that exist in the US. The US also consumes more drugs than all other countries combined. The US is number 38 in health care and France is number one. Figure out why and that will answer many questions. Any doctor that does not tell you there are other ways to correct these chemical imbalances, is nothing more than dishonest and corrupt. Speak up for your right to know!!
