Do You Have a Drug Pusher or a Doctor

It's crazy how not many people are questioning this culture of pill popping within our healthcare system. It seems that the only differences are, whom we are receiving the drugs from and the environment in which the transaction happens. It was noticeable with the opioid pandemic, but it became more evident recently with Ozempic, a medication created for diabetes. I had a client, 3-mos. shy of her wedding come to me for holistic treatment. She was in excellent shape but had some inflammatory responses that altered her appearance. The client was referred to me by a physician who knew I could help her. Less than 6 weeks before her wedding she was extremely happy with her results and was coming to me for (1)last visit. However, within that timeframe, unbeknownst to me, she went to a physician who prescribed her Ozempic to lose a few extra pounds for her wedding. Inside of 2 weeks from taking it, the client started experiencing inflammatory flare-ups again and began to panic. This is the drug abuse that is going on in our healthcare system. There are service providers prescribing medication to stimulate brain sensory, triggering signals that keeps patients dependent and coming back for more. Since when was it proper medical practice to prescribe medications that have nothing to do with the issue the patient came in for?

Did you know the basic role of a doctor is to teach? The literal root meaning of the word doctor is 'teacher', look it up! However, not enough of that is going on in mainstream medicine and there are a lot of questions going unanswered. People are taking pills left and right, meanwhile no diagnosis is being properly treated. This is not the practice of every provider, but you must know how to tell the difference. Here are a few ways to determine what type of service provider you have:

1.     They are thoroughly explaining their actions of treatment, including the drawbacks: You can make more informed decisions on which direction you should go when you have a larger field of view.

2.     They are also providing you with preventative care or connecting you to another professional to acquire preventative care: It's important to address the practices that contributed to your current condition. What good is the 'ointment' to help heal the knee if you keep re-injuring it (with the same practices)?

3.     They ensure a strategy that provides a finish line insight with your medication (this is possible more times than not): No FDA approved medication has been tested and passed on the notion that patients will be on it indefinitely, or for prolonged periods of time for that matter. They are approved based on them achieving their objective goal, with the impression of the benefit outweighing the risk.

To make sure your service provider has your best interest you must become educated. Learn more about your bodily functions and the effects your choices have on it, so that you can ask more informed questions at your next visit.
