Sounds like a silly question doesn't it.
It's not as silly as you may think.
Every day we are bombarded with commercials about one drug or another that promises to cure whatever condition you may have or think you have. But have you ever really listened to these commercials, I mean, really listen?
If you listen carefully you will wonder why anyone in there right mind would jeopardize their health by taking these drugs. In most cases the cure is much worse than the disease.
One popular drug for Arthritis has the following side effects and more:
blood count abnormalities
cirrhosis of liver (rare)
unexplained shortness of breath
hair loss (gradual)
Another drug has the following common side effects:
Upper respiratory tract infection, nausea, abnormal liver tests, redness at site of injection, high blood pressure, bronchitis, dizziness, sinus infection, flu, runny nose, fever, cold sores, numbness or tingling.
Why would anyone take such poison?
All prescription drugs have side effects. Did you know that prescription medicine is the third leading cause of death in the US?
I don't know about you but I would rather try the natural approach before I resort to Drugs. If that doesn't work then a drug may be necessary.
Just do a search on Natural alternatives for xxxxxx. Type your condition in place of x. Example: Natural alternatives for Arthritis. You'll find a wealth of information on remedies for your condition.
Remember you should be your own health advocate. Drugs are not always the answer.
A minor adjustment to your diet, some exercise and supplementation with vitamins, minerals and anti oxidants and you can prevent most common diseases and be a healthier, more youthful YOU.
