Prescription Drugs Ads Always pushing new Drugs to many Ads. They want you to self Diagnosis then tell your health care provide you need new drug. Then all the side effects are worse than your original symptoms were.
Why do we need Drs. because they sign prescription pads.
Then the big Drug stores cant refill prescription fast enough. They text you it’s almost time for refill If you don’t answerer they call you. I’ve told clerk at drug store counter don’t take that Med. any more. Then they still call trying to refill.
We need more preventive options . Maybe holistic or natural choices.
But the big drug companies discredit and persecute anything like that. Because it might work and it’s much cheaper. It might hurt their bottom line when they can’t paten it or charge over $100.00 a pill.October 31, 2018 at 5:30 pm #1142victorjParticipant
I’ll say it. WTF! I’m not buying it.
My impression is the less visible literature says, small problems turn into inflammation or basically tissue not working correctly. That turns into acute problems which can be treated early. If the acute problem festers or persists, it turns into disease.
I suspect drug companies favor chronic problems and disease because it leads to prescription or as-i-call-it “subscription” revenue. IMHO (in my humble opinion), holistic choices and wellness are a better way to go.

There seems to be a pill for just about anything these days. But I’m more a proponent of food being your medicine most of the time. Yes, I think a lot of what we consume can be beneficial — to reduce a lot of allergies, get rid of pain and inflammation, help our mental mood — and that’s why I tend to be quite healthy for my age. Plus, knowing a lot about nutrition makes me a better informed person.
Prescription drugs may be necessary in some cases but I usually take pains to find out what’s really behind the hype. And, mostly, it’s not good. We keep treating diseases and NOT curing them. Ask yourself this: when was the last disease “cured?” It’s not polio, by the way. Or smallpox. There are vaccines for those and others but try a Google search and you’ll find out some misinformation and real information in it.November 4, 2018 at 10:09 pm #1214BonniedebParticipant
I try not to ruffle feathers but I have known the truth about the medical field for a few years now. Modern medicine is disease management. They cure nothing. That industry only prospers if you are sick and stay sick. Please stop poisoning your body with the flu shot. You do not have to listen to your doctor. Your doctor does not love you. They are incentivized for everything. This nurse here speaks the truth. She even mentions my favorite immune boosting, natural remedy, Elderberry syrup. The only true medicine that heals is from the earth. I say this all not to upset anyone but with hope and love. 🙏💖
