I see many patients in my consultations who manage to stop taking traditional medicines due to different problems.this Headachethe use of analgesics such as acetaminophen, or more potent drugs derived from opioids; painful problems of the musculoskeletal system, taking anti-inflammatory drugs two to three times a day; mood disorders caused by serotonin reuptake inhibitors ( Also taken daily for several months) is also a cause of gastritis, such as damage to the gastric mucosa.
To painful problems we add gastritis or ulcers. With NSAIDs, renal metabolism is affected due to changes in blood filtration and elimination of toxic substances, leading to acute renal failure, a serious disease with a poor prognosis. Therefore, many times, similar examples occur with other types of illnesses secondary to self-medication.
Many people think that they can continue to take medicine when they are sick. While this is true, on the other hand, you should also know that these measures should only be taken if absolutely necessary. Always try to avoid them, but there are obviously difficult exceptions, such as infectious processes, where our lives are at risk if not administered orally, intramuscularly or intravenously. Thus, at the beginning of the 20th century, the discovery of penicillin broke everyone’s expectations. Due to lack of infection management, people die before the age of 30 to 40 years. We know that bacteria quickly colonize bronchial secretions and without the right treatment can cause complications in the lungs that can kill anyone within weeks. The same thing happens with things like intestinal and skin infections.
Therefore, physical therapy becomes an important tool to enable patients to resolve painful issues. Therefore, ultrasound, magnetic therapy, interfering currents and low-intensity lasers help reduce muscle, tendon, bone and joint problems and many other problems. In this way, the drug consumption during the rehabilitation process of musculoskeletal injuries is greatly reduced, and the amount used is less than 70% of the drugs that should be used during the rehabilitation process. This is a daunting thing.
Taking cold showers, stretching, and practicing breathing exercises can help us better oxygenate our central nervous system, thereby reducing the possible consumption of medications for mood disorders or depression. Additionally, the number of visits to a psychiatrist will be significantly reduced. Psychology has contributed a lot in releasing thoughts or tensions in the mental realm that reduce our quality of life and lead patients to take sleeping pills frequently. So there are many other examples of how you can avoid taking medications in insignificant ways without worrying about getting stuck in side effects.
