Don’t Use Medications as a Crutch!
Are you relying solely on medication to treat your symptoms? The “fibromyalgia medication,” Lyrica, is not a fibromyalgia medication at all! It is an anti-seizure medication or an epilepsy drug. The same holds true for Neurotin and Topamax. Ask yourself if you really think all of the medications that you’re taking are actually making your body functional or healthy. Is it really fixing your symptoms? Think about this: If you gave the medication that you’re taking to a healthy person, would they remain healthy or would they become sick? They would become sick! ALL medications have side effects
All you’re doing with medications is covering up symptoms. You’re also creating unwanted side effects, which may in the long run make you worse. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen in their eighties that started off with one or two medications in their thirties, ended up with four or five medications in their fifties, and now in their eighties, they’re taking thirteen to fifteen medications.
Don’t think that you need a medication to be healthy. And don’t get me wrong; I’m not saying to stop taking your medications this minute. But…as we test you and we’re treating you and we’re retesting you, you’re bound to improve, and, eventually, you can go back to your medical doctor, and you can ask him to take you off of these medications or decrease the dosage.
We want to work at getting to the cause of your problem. We want to reverse your symptoms. We want to get the root cause and get the problem taken care of at the very beginning.
