A great book entitled “Pills That Don’t Work” lists over 120 ineffective drugs that have been on the market for at least 20 years.
The drugs detailed in the book were deemed to be ineffective 12 years ago by a panel of experts from all over the country.
To date the FDA has not removed these drugs from the market. How dangerous are ineffective drugs?
Dr. Wolfe says, “People don’t realize that pills can do as much damage as surgical operations. Surgery is always thought of as a more explicit kind of violence in terms of its ability to damage people.
The adverse reactions to a lot of drugs are just as serious.”
Dr. Wolfe estimates that 170 million prescriptions a year are for drugs that lack evidence of effectiveness. And the over-the-counter drug area is even worse.
Some of the drugs he reports, “actually prolong the healing process.”
In light of these findings, it behooves us all not only to carefully scrutinize the drugs that we may be taking, and also to seek alternative methods of achieving health.
Chiropractic is such a method.
The aim of Chiropractic is the proper functioning of all the organs and parts of the body. Yet, rather than depending on drugs to mask symptoms, Chiropractic enables the body to maximize its own curative abilities.
This is achieved by eliminating blockages to the spinal cord and nerves, called subluxations, thereby allowing the nervous system to carry out the functions that it was designed for.
It is a safe, natural health-care program that assists rather than hinders nature. And fortunately, its only ‘side-effect’ is a healthier, happier you.
