Drugs have saved millions of lives, no doubt about that, and we can’t turn a blind eye to people who have been saved by drugs. But it might surprise you to know that all drugs have side effects.
As a naturopathic organization, we advise the use of drugs only in life-threatening conditions. We also don’t advise people to be on drugs for a long time or even for a lifetime e.g. BP and diabetes drugs and many others.
And at this, it should be used for a short time and a natural approach should be used to help the body to heal itself instead of suppressing symptoms with drugs.
Reasons Why You Should Use Drugs Sparingly
1. Drugs don’t cure diseases
Drugs are suppressants and they never actually cure diseases. They just change the location and even the form of the disease. They seem to be beneficial for a short while but later, adverse side effects start occurring.
One of the main side effects of drugs is that the disease manifests in another form. The disease which you are taking drugs for might go away but it will surely re-appear in another form.
This new form of the disease might reappear in the form of ulcers, painful joint disease, skin disease, compromised immune system, and even cancer. And some drugs have death listed as their side effects.
When you take drugs, your body keeps struggling and you suffer from a lot of ailments. This continues until your body can’t bear it anymore, it finally breaks down and death follows.
2. Drugs obstruct the healing efforts of nature
All kinds of diseases are actually an effort by the body to heal itself. Nature is at work when you feel symptoms and at this stage, you should support the body in its healing process and not suppress it with drugs.
You incur the wrath of nature when you do this, and though, you might feel better for a while, the side effects will surface sooner or later.
When we use drugs to obstruct nature’s healing response, you cause more damages, prolong the ailment, and shorten the life of the patient.
A lot of people might not die as a result of using drugs for a long time or even for a lifetime. But from what we’ve seen, they become useless, their system has been wrecked, they are also hopeless and gloomy.
They become a burden to themselves and their families as they suffer miserably. This happens when you obstruct nature’s work and suppress symptoms instead of removing the root causes and set the right preconditions for the body to heal itself.
3. Drugs have side effects
I wish it were so in real life. All drugs have side effects including the painkillers like acetaminophen that are easily accessible to everyone without a doctor’s prescription.
All medicines leave behind an injurious effect on the body even though they relive the present suffering temporary.
4. Drugs complicate issues
One thing with taking drugs is that the number of drugs prescribed to you increases as you choose to stick to it. When you start having side effects, more drugs will be added to suppress the side effects.
Every additional drug given will worsen the case and make the patient suffer more. Recovery will look hopeless. Agreeing to take drugs in the beginning causes all these.
Every time you feel symptoms, it is nature waking up to heal and overcome any illness. She will win if you leave her to herself and just support the process.
But when you obstruct this healing process with drugs and more drugs, you simply complicate it X10. In this case, the body stops the healing process and uses it remaining energy to fight off the drug which it sees as an intruder.
What Should We Do When Sick?
Nature responds to Natural remedies because they help the body heal while drugs do the opposite.
It is diet that cures and nothing else. Herbs just help the body handle symptoms and remove the root causes. And you must also know why the disease happened in the first place so that you can prevent it from happening again.
If you don’t do this and jump straight to suppressing the symptoms with drugs, you exhaust your life forces and exhausted nature will simply give up the struggle.
You can prevent this by making wise use of nature’s remedies. In addition, you should also pray and ask God for wisdom and discipline to help you heal.
There are no side effects if you use nature’s remedies correctly. About 9/10 of complaints are created by people’s actions which include taking drugs.
The more drugs you introduce into your system, the more you interfere with the laws of nature and cause the diseases you are taking drugs to avoid.
You also pet a disease and yield to its power when you choose to take drugs instead of removing its root causes. You weaken your system and even have a high risk of passing transmitting a weak immune system or other diseases to your children.
From this, you’ve seen why we shouldn’t use drugs except in life-threatening situations, and at this, it should be for a short while. The best way to heal the body is to use safe and effective natural protocols to detox and set the conditions the body needs to heal itself.
Many people have died from the long-term use of drugs and they would have been alive if only they had left nature to do her work.
