There are times when drugs are necessary, but the bottom line is that most of the time they aren’t.
Unfortunately, when you buy into the mindset that you need a drug to “fix” you, two things happen that begin to feed on each other, creating a never-ending loop of deteriorating health.
First, you are taking in a toxic substance. All drugs are toxic.
Second, drugs lie to you – drugs tell you that you are healthier but you aren’t! Instead you are just unable to feel an uncomfortable symptom.
Drugs don’t make you healthy
Over 100,000 Americans die each year from taking properly prescribed prescription drugs. Many people take more drugs to deal with the side effects from the first one, followed by another one, and another … ?
In 1929, the average American received less than two prescriptions per year. The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics report “Health, United States, 2013” found that 48% of people said they were taking a prescription medication, compared with 39% in 1988-1994.
About one in four children took one or more prescription drugs in the past month, compared to nine in 10 adults 65 and older, according to the study.
Take a dose of chiropractic care instead
Chiropractic helps reverse that trend – by helping your body, your natural drugstore, make every drug you need to live a healthy life. Avoid being another medical drug statistic – chiropractic care is natural healthcare for you and your family.
