Naturalists all around the world believe our bodies create everything that it needs to heal and live healthy.

IF that is true, why do we have so many doctor prescribed drugs on the market? What do you think?

  • I think that the answer is that while the prescription drugs are not evil, they all come with some side effects and should only be taken as a last resort, and when they are really needed. Doctors are to quick to prescribe and patients are to quick to trust their doctors.

  • It's the Dr's that over prescribe certain meds ie oxycontin, oxycodone etc. that are evil. You would be AMAZED at how much a Dr. over prescribes. I depend on meds for my Epilepsy, but I take personal responsibility on what I take, some people aren't able to do this. To them the Dr. is GOD!

  • Not true. I have early onset arthritis and have to take medication for it. Maybe they should live a few weeks with what I have then make that statement.

  • We should ask those in great pain or those who have mental illness. Medication allows me to be a functioning member of society and most importantly, a good mother.

  • Not true. If it weren't for my prescription heartburn medication I would not be getting any sleep, nor would I be able to keep any food down. I would be absolutely miserable.
