Why are so many so quick to take drugs instead of trying to fix things more naturally?
So many drugs out there have horrible side effects but yet we take them instead of trying to see if we can fix the problem naturally first (don't get me wrong I know some people need to take drugs).
My MIL has high blood pressure, her Dr told her to change her diet, exercise & lose some weight (she is over weight) she did nothing bc she could take a pill to control her BP.
My mother was borederline diabetic, she did nothing to change that. She didn't lose weight or even try to & she has high BP as well.
I have problems w/my feet & shoulders, when I moved my new Dr refused physical therapy (which I was going through back home) and gave me Percocet & Flexiril. Seriously? My issue can be helped more naturally w/therapy.
All these drugs can & have caused other issues in many other people.
Those are just a few examples. It just seems I am seeing a trend here. Someone has a problem & they pop some pills when other things could have been tried first. Why? Do people not care about what they put into their bodies? Do people really trust pharmaceutical companies & the Drs completely?
And no I am not talking about people that absolutely need to take something or have tried everything & in the end they still need some help from a man made drug.
I just don't get why Drs are now pushing drug after drug after drug & people are ok just popping so many pills all the time.
