You might think these are symptoms from a disease or condition, but you couldn’t be further from the truth. These are just a small sample of side effects from prescription medications. Many of these side effects are actually more scary than the conditions or diseases they treat. Every year, more than two million Americans suffer from serious reactions from prescription drugs of which about 100,000 will lose their lives. In fact, prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of deaths in our county. If this scares you, then consider treating your condition through chiropractic care from your New Port Richey, FL chiropractor. If you need more reasons to consider dumping prescription drugs, then read on.
Digging a little deeper, reported reactions to prescription drugs merely skims the surface. You need to understand that side effects from prescription drugs are not always recognized as such. That is, doctors often downplay these side effects or even attribute them to other problems. Just because a drug has been through a plethora of testing, when it is released in your body anything can, and will, happen.
Ultimately, it is your body and therefore your decision in how you want a condition or disease treated. Far too many drugs are over-prescribed and often unnecessary. There are many conditions that can be successfully treated with chiropractic care, a healthy diet and lifestyle changes. Be an active participant in your health and leave the horrors of prescription drugs behind.
