I think there aren't only two sorts of people (who do everything they can to find alternative ways to cure stuff, and those who trust the doctors no matter what), and that those of us who feel a little better when they go to the doctor believing that they may help us in life saving ways, well...
So, do you ever worry when you go and get the prescribed drug, afraid that you could take something without the "criminally implemented" side effects (put into the drugs to make you have to use other ones to generate more money to the drug industry), but not knowing what else you could use, so you just hope that you are taking a "least harmful" kind of thing - already knowing how many times people had their health ruined because of the medical industry? :S:S:S
Absolutely. I've come to put no trust or faith into doctors and yes, I am always hesitant/reluctant to taking just anything they give me. Here's basically plenty of reason for me:
-My OB/GYN prescribed me anxiety and pain meds (4 each a day). How the hell do I focus on just one a day, much less four each? I cannot hold my head up or remember people being at my house when I've taken the anxiety meds.
-All that time on those meds and the surgery for nothing, yet there was a simple, $9 solution to all my health problems: aloe vera. Healed me right up yet a doctor had me on all kinds of shit and too much of it. Sure, some help with anxiety and pain is totally fine and great when it is helpful, but there are reasons to be cautious. I do still have my flare-ups, but I went from years of being a severely ill, 70 pound girl to a healthy, happy, life-living 95 pound girl in less than 5 months once I began eating my aloe!
I think doctors are mostly in it for money. That is all they see (most anyway). These days, I trust nothing but a natural doctor, one that focuses on natural ways to heal, they're often far more effective. However, it's hard to find a naturopathic dr.
I agree and I applaud you for being so educated on this matter. At one time I thought 'well, if a dr. says so, do so.' Not anymore. No, I don't think all doctors are bad, but I feel like we're being screwed in general, and in a lot of cases, just as you pointed out, we're being put at high risk for something we don't need to be put at risk at all for most of the time.
Don't even get me started on shit like vaccines. Lol
