Some Non-Drug Solutions

An argument could easily be made that we as a society have become too dependant on drugs to solve every aspect of our lives.  From disobedient children to high blood pressure we look to prescription drugs for an easy fix.  Unfortunately, our doctors are also constantly barraged with propaganda singing the praises of the pharmaceutical solution. 

If you have any concern about the side effects or even the effectiveness of a drug you have been prescribed talk to your doctor about alternatives.  If he or she seems disinterested or does not want to take the time to talk to you find another doctor.  Many doctors are acquainted with other things to try before putting patients on medications where the "cure could be worse than the disease". 

Did you, for instance, that even major hospitals and specialists recommend acupuncture to help with pain? Some hospitals have Yoga classes to assist patients and care-givers in dealing with the stresses involved in major illness and disability.

It has been found in several studies that Valerian Root and St. John's Wort can be effective against depression, anxiety and stress.  This may or may not be true in every case.  But wouldn't you rather give this a try when antidepressants carry the highest level warning ever issued by the FDA?

Lifestyle changes can effectively be used to counter the anxieties and stresses of life that take their tolls on our health.  It's important to find a doctor who is willing to take the time to discuss your particular health situation and work with you on the safest and most effective solutions rather than just the quickest one that comes to mind which is usually that one most recently advertised in a medical magazine or pushed by a pharmaceutical rep.
