Ex-Pharma Sales Reps Speaks Out – Pharma Not in Business of Health, Healing, Cures, Wellness.

Gwen Olsen spent fifteen years as a pharmaceutical sales rep working for such healthcare giants as Johnson & Johnson, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Abbott Laboratories. She enjoyed a successful, fast-paced career until several conscious-altering experiences began awakening her to the dangers lurking in every American medicine cabinet. Her most poignant lessons, however, came as both victim and survivor of life-threatening adverse drug reactions. After leaving pharmaceutical sales in 2000, Gwen worked in the natural foods industry first as an Account Manager for Nature’s Way, and then as a Regional Sales Manager for Gaia Herbs. She is currently a writer, speaker, and natural health consultant.

The United States health care system is killing Americans at an alarming rate, even though we spend over fifteen percent of the Gross National Product (GNP) on health care. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, our health care outcomes ranked only fifteenth among twenty-five industrialized nations worldwide. Adverse effects from prescription drugs have become the third-leading killer of Americans. Only heart disease and cancer claim more lives. We trust our doctors to inform us and our government to protect us from medical malfeasance that may put profits ahead of consumer health and safety. But the fine line walked by the FDA between the interests of the pharmaceutical manufacturers and the American public has continually been crossed. The result is the unleashing of an unprecedented number of lethal drugs on the U.S. market!

Gwen Olsen learned firsthand the danger that lurks in every American’s medicine cabinet, working in the pharmaceutical industry. But her most poignant education would come as a victim and, ultimately, as a survivor.

  3. to Mrs. Gwen Olson:

    I seen a lot of people of psychiatric drugs in my
    59 years of being alive. I have friends who are dr. of
    pyschology and tell me there is quite a difference between a healer and doctor , which , you had aptly put out.
    These drugs which I call lulliby pills and kind of like billy club
    pills. The only drugs i do is toprol and hydrochlorizide drugs and has been at least 9 years or so, anyway, the
    deceptiveness of promoting these psychiatric drugs and the
    like is similar to the tobacco industry being deceptive of it’s
    product. They got nailed as you know! someone i know
    closely is on spiritdom and i feel bad for this person. Maybe
    we should make a creepdom pill for these crafty imposters!

    Good luck
    and i enjoyed your videos

    sincerely
