People in America are taking far more Rx drugs today than people in other countries. In fact, America comprises a mere 5% of the worlds population, yet it consumes nearly 75% of all Rx drugs in the world!* (*UNODC 2011).
You might think that the overall health of Americans is improving. Yet sadly, in spite of all the Rx drugs being dispensed and consumed, the rate of diseases continues to climb upward and the health of the American population ranks far below that of other developed countries with no end in sight.
Why is that? In addition to slick direct to consumer public relations and marketing campaigns, many medical doctors are compensated and rewarded for actively promoting the use of Rx drugs. The Rx drug industry is one of the richest industries on earth and that industry simply doesn’t make any money from a healthy population. The Rx drug industry isn’t interested in creating cures, it is interested in cultivating and maintaining customers, for life.
Since the people who control the Rx drug industry, and those involved in the distribution and sales of said drugs have more to gain by reinforcing the status quo, they actively and harshly suppress natural alternatives to over the counter and Rx drugs. Even though many alternatives had long been proven effective before Rx drugs were developed.
Medicine is defined as “the art or science of restoring or preserving health”. With or without Rx drugs. Medicine has also been used as a synonymous term for Rx drugs.
We have great appreciation for the value and benefits provided by Rx drugs as they have certainly helped a great number of people. Their value is especially important in the areas of crisis management and emergency medicine. We are not against Rx drugs, we even prescribe them as needed. But people should be made aware that options exist.
It’s also important to understand that illness and disease are not caused by a deficiency of Rx drugs!
High blood pressure is not caused by lack of beta blockers, diuretics or ACE inhibitors. Diabetes is not caused by a deficiency of metformin flowing through your veins. Depression is not the result of an SSRI deficiency. Arthritis and inflammation are not caused by a lack of NSAID’s and constipation is not caused by a deficiency of a laxative.
Although Rx drugs can be helpful to manage symptoms, they do nothing to address the true, underlying root causes of your illness or disease.
During the past 15 years we have proven that “Medicine without Drugs” is more than just a provocative catch phrase. It’s a proven form of medicine that is proactive rather than reactive. It promotes health and wellness, it manages symptoms while seeking to resolve and cure disease, rather than merely creating a dependant customer for life.
