The worst part of losing a loved one isn’t the grief. It’s all the hucksters who come out of the woodwork to prey on you and your family…
Seems like EVERYONE is trying to take advantage of you, from bogus debt collectors demanding cash, to fake insurance hucksters offering a too-good-to-be-true payout.
Even many funeral homes will try to con you into badly overpriced coffins and out-of-control fees for the service.
Well now, you can add one more to the list…
This one’s coming from a place you’d NEVER expect: Mainstream medicine.
Big Pharma’s now making a push for your doctor to DRUG YOU for grief!
Protect your heart from grief after the loss of a loved one
There are A LOT of drugs on the market seniors hate… but two are right near the top of the list:
2) Beta blockers
The first one could leave you bleeding like you’ve been stabbed from the inside; the second can leave you hazy, dizzy and prone to a fall.
Either way, plenty of folks have made it their mission to avoid these drugs.
And the mainstream HATES it.
They’ve made it their mission to get you on them… by hook or by crook… and now they think they may have found a way in as a new report claims that grief is tough on the heart.
Of course it is. It’s tough on EVERYTHING.
You’re grieving, for crying out loud!
It’s a normal part of human existence – but now they want to put you on pills for it!!
The report claims aspirin and/or beta blockers will cut blood pressure and ease anxiety after loss.
That, they say, could potentially save lives by stopping the “broken heart syndrome,” or the elevated death risk seen in the weeks and months after the loss of a spouse.
So… how many people were saved by this approach?
Let me tally up the numbers for you: ZERO!
This study didn’t track who lived and who died. It only followed who got small benefits in blood pressure and anxiety levels – benefits you could get in any number of OTHER ways.
Yet based on that report, you can bet they’ll start passing out the prescriptions anyway.
Let me give you two REAL tips for life after loss:
Tip #1: No meds can give you the comfort you seek. Turn to loved ones… your church… and don’t forget to care for yourself. It’s easy to lose sleep, eat poorly, and struggle with stress — all of which can be a bear on your heart.
Do your best to watch for those pitfalls, or at least surround yourself with friends and family who can watch over you when you can’t.
Tip #2: It’s not just Big Pharma hucksters looking to scam you. Be skeptical of ANYONE you have to deal with in the days and weeks after a loss.
And watch out for things you’d never expect – like robberies and identity theft. Shady characters scan the obits pages so they can rob homes during funerals and even attempt to steal the ID – and benefits – of the deceased.
