Is Medicine Killing You?

Is Medicine Killing You?
Yesterday I was watching the documentary “Prescription Thugs” and it’s a subject I already knew about but I didn’t know how to bad it was until I watched that documentary, if you haven’t seen it I recommend you do, but I’m not going to talk about the documentary and I’m not just going to repeat the same stuff you can watch there, I’m going to address the elephant in the room and figure out which of these drugs do you really need and which of these can you live without…

I live in Mexico City and one of the major differences I’ve seen between Mexico and the United States is that most of the people I know in the US if not all of them take some sort of pill every single day even if it’s just vitamins, in Mexico most people only take pills if they feel sick.

And taking this a step further, in my travel to Peru I noticed that most Peruvians don’t even go to a Doctor of a pharmacy if they have a minor sickness they go buy natural herbs before even thinking about going to a hospital.

The result is that in the US hundreds of thousands of people die each year because of prescription drug abuse, in Mexico about 50 people die for that same reason and in Peru about one or two…

And it’s not that Mexico or Peru doesn’t have access to these drugs it’s about the culture around legal drug consumption…

The Doctors Perspective…

Many doctors including relatives and friends of mine have told me that in medical school most doctors never learn about 2 very basic things in my opinion, 1. Nutrition, what food does to the body… and 2. The full effects of every drug they prescribe…

You would think these 2 things would be important but most doctors are trained to prescribe drugs to fix said problem but are never informed of the Side Effects or even the addictive nature of some of these drugs. Therefore the doctor may be causing harm to his or her patients without even knowing it.

Therefore they give you pill for your heart but it causes you to have anxiety so they give you something for that and then you can’t sleep so you get something for that, then you have trouble going to bathroom so you get something else for that and before you know it you’re taking 10 pills a day just because you had high blood pressure.

Ever seen the commercials for these drugs? When they list the side effects you realize you would rather live with the problem, particularly I remember a commercial for a drug called Humira, this drug is supposed to be for joint pain however the side effects include a strong possibility of infection, tuberculosis and or cancer!

Did you know you can alleviate joint pain with marihuana? Now I’m no junkie I only smoked it twice in my life and didn’t even like it, but in Mexico the marihuana leaf has been used effectively for years with that very purpose (not smoked but as an ointment).

People tend to forget where medicine comes from, the things that make you better when you’re sick come from food and plants, these drugs are isolates of the key components in the food and the plants.

Even vitamins, where do vitamins come from? Fruits and vegetables! 

We live in a culture when we want everything fast and easy and we don’t want to have to struggle for anything, you feel sleepy? Here is a pill… You can’t focus? Here is a pill… You feel sad? Here is pill!

We want quick fixes to our problems but we don’t pay attention to what’s causing these problems…

About Antidepressants…

Antidepressants are the most addictive and dangerous drugs in the market yet doctors and psychiatrists prescribe these all the time without giving the patient any clue as to how to deal with the thing that is making them feel depressed in the first place!

I had this experience with my dad, during a rough time in his marriage he felt very depressed because he was working at a place he didn’t love, he wasn’t feeling very connected with his wife and he didn’t like where he was living so obviously he became depressed…

His doctor prescribed antidepressants and he started taking them, basically they just made him feel numb but they didn’t remove the problems from his life, but then he made the best decision he could have made for himself he stopped taking the pills, he moved to a different place he ended his marriage and met someone new and now he is happier than I’ve ever seen him all without the pills.

Because Antidepressants don’t eliminate depression or sadness from your life only you can do that, it’s like injecting anestesia to your leg and punching it really hard non stop! Once the effect wears off your leg is going to hurt like hell and it’s going to be all black and blue.

Be health conscious not sick conscious…

Most countries in the word don’t have health care they have sick care, what do I mean by this?

It’s not until you get sick that you go to the doctor, and if you go to the doctor he always assumes you are incapable of altering your lifestyle so you need the drug, you need to surgery, you need the treatment…

If you take care of your body on a regular basis, guess what? You don’t get sick as much! You don’t even need the pills!

So many people submit themselves to dangerous possibly life ending surgery to reduce the size of their stomach to avoid eating right and exercising and I’ve had friends who have done this… They got the gastric bypass and they did lose a lot of weight but guess what? Just like the antidepressants if you don’t change you habits and your environment nothing ever changes.

Those friends are now just as fat or even fatter than when they got the surgery they basically threw thousands of dollars down the drain because they were not willing to take care of their health…

Do the smart thing and take care of yourself, for you and for those around you ok?

I hope you got value out of this, share your thoughts on the comments below and make sure you check out “Prescription Thugs” I’m going to leave the trailer for you right here…

Make it a great day…
