HJ: If you take care of your body and engage in a truly healthy lifestyle (preventative lifestyle medicine), there is really no reason to ever take pharmaceutical drugs. Even if you don’t take care of your body, just about anything is reversible through the use of natural medicines and healing of belief. And if it is not (in the case of terminal illnesses), it is not going to be reversed by pharmaceuticals or alternative natural medicines. Drugs simply treat the symptoms of disease, but not the actual cause, which is always tied up in ones beliefs and spiritual attitudes. These beliefs and attitudes determine how susceptible we are to disease and sickness. If we are susceptible, then we are at the mercy to some degree of various bacteria, viruses and so on. This is an advanced understanding of the nature of disease and is most definitely not accepted by mainstream medicine, which is why they are perpetually stuck in crisis mode trying to deal with the latest wave of illness and after decades of research and trillions in funding are still no closer to a cure for Cancer, AIDS, and so on. It is because they are only treating symptoms and not the cause. Any real progress on these fronts is being made in the fields of developing highly effective natural treatments and lifestyle/dietary modifications for these various illnesses that plague mankind. The next frontier is the spontaneous healing of belief through deeper understanding and acceptance of the self and the true spiritual nature of existence.
That being said, your best shot at dealing with and mitigating the causes of disease on the physical plane is the use of natural remedies and the adoption of a truly healthy lifestyle (encompassing diet, attitude and exercise). If you are currently on pharmaceutical drugs, know that it is possible to eliminate them from your life. The guide below will help you begin to understand the true causes of many of the illnesses you may suffer from and also present natural alternative therapies for you to engage in to address the underlying issues causing the need for a pharmaceutical treatment in the first place.
The 7 Most Prescribed Drugs In The World And Their Natural Counterparts
By Dave Mihalovic, ND | Prevent Disease
We don’t have to live in a medicated world, but we certainly choose to. The crux of the matter is that we refuse to proactively think about prevention because we reactively commit to treating the symptoms of underlying health problems. This is the allopathic model. We want the quick fix so we can continue our poor lifestyle and dietary habits. It doesn’t have to have to be this way, but it is. We can blame doctors, the medical institutions and healthcare systems all we want, but self-responsibility is our only recourse if we are ever to surface from this mess. There are no excuses–if you’re taking one of these drugs, consult with a Natural Health Practitioner this week about phasing out your medication and phasing in these powerful natural foods and remedies.
