Okay so you get a runny nose, or a cold, hardly going to kill you, but tv blasts you with adverts to take medication to get rid of it as soon as possible, a headache, nothing major but most people will reach for the pill box rather than thier inner strength.

Is it any wonder why we have a problem with microscopic organisms getting use to the medication, and it doesn’t help our self defense system either, if they rely on the medication doing all of the work for them your white blood cells are going to become lazy and just not bother.

The only times you should really take medication is when you’re suffering from something that your body cant heal, and you’d be surprised at the injuries your body can heal without medication. Dont give in to the pharmaceutical companies who just want you to buy thier products, they dont actually care about your health. Take a day off, lie in bed and recover with a nice warm drink, its not going to do any harm if you have a day off and relax a little to recover.

I think there should be a call for all over the shelf medical products to be capped, so that only people with a VALID reason for needing medication can obtain it, it would also reduce abuse by drug addicts.

You will have a stronger more healthy body if you dont rely on over the shelf medication.
