THE DANGERS OF SELF MEDICATION
Most Americans self medicate. We take aspirins or over the counter cough medicines,etc. Everything that we ingest has a chemical composition, even food. The wrong combination can produce fatal consequences.
Several years ago I flew to a nutritional clinic to obtain the combination of herbs that would not cause an illness, but cure my many symptoms. I was aware that self medicating has a terrible downside.
Many individuals who are fighting extreme pain decide to use street drugs which besides being impure can create undesirable side effects. Youngsters trying crack (cocaine) are not aware that continued usage of crack can alter the brain and cause Schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is the breakdown of the brain so that delusional and hallucinations of the paranoid quality will destroy ones sense of peace, harmony, and contentment. Paranoia is pure fear. Fear that someone is out to get you. Fear that your loved one is cheating on you. Grandiose ideas of being better or more successful than others, having more rights than others is not grounded in reality but in the Crack mind. Agitation, sleeplessness, and other disagreeable warning signs creates bodily and social discord.
Think more than twice, in fact think forever about trying a recreational drug or self medicating. No matter how good the reason might seem to take a street drug, a poor choice leads you to a private hell that you will want to escape. If you need medication, go to a doctor. If the doctor prescribes something that is not effective for you, tell him. There are many medications available and only the physician can decide what is the best approach when one medicine does not work for you.
