Too many pills?

HAVE you ever thought you may be taking too many tablets? One for blood pressure, one for gout, one for pain, one for cholesterol, one for heart, one for inflammation and so on? The modern medical approach of “a pill for every ailment” has become very commonplace.

Then we start by needing pills to counter-balance the negative effects of the others and we start adding vitamins and other “natural medicines” that we read about on the internet or in popular magazines.

The problem starts with believing that we are as healthy as our numbers: blood pressure, sugar, cholesterol, BMI and so on. We become distracted with this notion, and forget that we are a complete system that is designed to work in harmony.

However, our modern approach leads us to believe that we are merely a physical body with separate organs that apparently are just suspended in “some stuff”. Sounds easy, but how does it all fit together? Could our lungs possibly be affected by what we eat or our heart be affected by how we think? If so, then why a separate pill for each apparently “separate” ailment? Is it possible that the way we think and react in situations could possibly have anything to do with the chronic pain in the neck, or the high blood pressure?

Furthermore, how many of the pills we take are merely suppressing symptoms of a body out of balance? If we take a pill to cure one problem, such as blood pressure, then the origin of the problem, let’s say bad diet and unresolved anger, may present itself later in another body system, perhaps gastritis or ulcers. Another pill to cure that, we think it’s gone away, and it rears its head elsewhere again, perhaps with arthritis...

A really holistic or integrated approach to your overall well-being could reveal some interesting connections between your various physical complaints. You may not need all those pills.
