It is easier for health professionals to use drugs as a substitute for change. Alcohol, nicotine or prescription
anti-depressants and stimulants are simpler than applying intelligence and analytical skills to relationship
problems and negative emotions.
Women taking medication are wise to seek
medical advice before conceiving or immediately following conception, to lower
the risk of adverse effects on unborn children.
Which Medications are Dangerous to your Health?
Some solutions are worse than the problems. Some cures are
worse than the diseases. Some common drugs and medications cause injury, pain,
addiction, suffering and symptoms of mental health disorders.
Are your symptoms a consequence of your
Do you believe that drugs can solve relationship problems?
Many people struggling to improve their lives are
stuck in confusion, depression and insomnia. These symptoms are sometimes caused
by common foods and by common medications such as
pain relievers, stimulants and tranquilizers - both legal and illegal.
If your physician
prescribes a medication, ask about its side-effects.
Every medication contains chemicals that may cause side
effects. Some side effects are physical, such as nausea or blurred vision, and
some side effects affect mood and emotions. If someone has a mental disorder, why
not check if medication causes the symptoms? List what medications are taken, and
compare the medication history to the symptom history. Ask unbiased medical professionals
about the side effects of any drugs that were prescribed for you or your family.
Ask physicians if they would prescribe your
medication to their families!
Check the Prescription ... Notice the Effects
A study by the American Medical Association
revealed that prescription drugs kill over 100,000 people in the USA
every year, hence prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death.
Further, in each year there are over two million
serious adverse drug reactions in America alone (this means that people
required hospitalization or were permanently disabled ... or died).
Wrong drugs and wrong dosages
injure hundreds of thousands of people.
Specific concerns include:
prescribing errors, poor handwriting, verbal or ambiguous orders.
Orders not modified or cancelled, look-alike and sound-alike drug names,
wrong abbreviations, faulty drug distribution, poor labeling,
ignorance and fatigue.
Even if correctly prescribed, and packaged by a pharmacy
technician, some medications may induce delusions and mental disorders,
(as may food allergies, food sensitivities, environmental conditions and
You need not be a victim ... just observe when your symptoms
are worst! Notice which patterns of medications, food
and relationship behavior seem to precede or trigger your symptoms.
Common drugs such as Darvon®,
Demerol® and Percodan® are addictive narcotics that can impair
brain function, cause mood swings and disturb sleep.
Some medication side-effects increase the symptoms
that a drug was supposed to control. This may lead people
to take more of a symptom-producing drug in an effort to control that
symptom. Over 100 million prescriptions for mood-changing drugs are made
annually in North America alone!
If only 1% of these prescriptions are to alleviate
the undiagnosed side-effects of other drugs, that's a million meaningless
and expensive prescriptions for potentially harmful drugs every year.
But it may be acceptable by some as good business in a consumer driven industry.
Different doctors gave me very
different answers about my son's medications.
I did some research. Drug companies
provide most post-graduate training
for doctors, and doctors mostly
prescribe drugs that they know about.
I found a doctor who changed
my son's medications
with amazing results.
She discovered that my son
is allergic to a common
filler used in many drugs.
Many people who are addicted to drugs turn their lives
around in rehab programs. In the United States there are treatment
facilities like the
Colorado drug treatment
centers in every state and in most other countries. We offer online assistance
to people who want to manage their emotions and solve relationship problems.
Medication & Relationships
Many addictive drugs (especially alcohol and nicotine) are used
to control emotions created in relationship conflicts. Do you take
drugs so that you can stay in a relationship ...
perhaps in a job or a marriage?
It can be hard to find health
professionals who don't take drugs.
When I worked in xxx clinic, I was one of the few staff
smoke, drink or take anti-depressants and/or benzodiazepine daily.

Pain Control without Drugs
. Stress Disorders
Food Allergies & Mental Health
Some mental disorders are caused by allergies to common foods,
such as sugar, corn, wheat, milk products or potatoes. Many people
who are sensitive to foods experience confusion, aggression,
hyperactivity or depression, not
physical symptoms such as a rash. Other common causes of mental health
problems include intolerance to food additives or preservatives.
. Eating Disorders
Many apparent mental disorders are sensitivities and allergies to
contaminants, or triggered by vitamin deficiencies or stress. Yet the
most common cause of emotional issues seems to be relationships.
Clarifying and resolving relationship problems may bring a near-miraculous
and drug-free alleviation of mental health symptoms. See

Although medication can help treatable diseases or conditions;
