Are we getting addicted to medicines?
Are we so paranoid about illness that we tend to consume medicines in a manner which makes us sort of addicted to them? Why are people so dependent on medicines for the slightest form of illness?
Medicines if we talk about, are very important to cure diseases. If its a highly effective disease or if it is a minor one. Medicines like God gives us the best cure from it. Just like we say "Doctors are our second form of God." And that role played by doctors are actually played by the medicines that are there and they recommend us.
Medicines are getting used in our daily lives just like our usual things. Any illness and we have the medicines in hand. Even before we get any disease, seeing just a symptom of it, makes us to take a particular medicine. If we are sneezing or a normal cough and cold, we go and just take the medicines, the most common names are cetirizine, dcold cough syrup, paracetamol, crocin. These are the basic ones if I talk.
Even the children today know the names of these medicines as they have got so much used to of it. Because of having a lot of cough and cold.
Lastly, if you prefer to go to a doctor, you will surely be coming back with 4 to 5 tablets in your hand, I can guarantee. One for the fever, other for a headache, another one for sneezing, other for cough. Anyway, doctors here will try to make their money.
My question is "Are we so lazy and we so dependent on these medicines to cure yourself." I am talking about small diseases first like a cough, cold, fever. These diseases automatically will take 2 to 3 days to cure. So, if we take some herbal things like Tulsi leaves in tea or try some herbal stuff, and try and avoid these medicines. We can still cure ourselves.
It is just that we get worried a lot and are not able to be patient. So, we take up the medicines. If you undergo a really dangerous disease, then there is obviously no choice except the medicines.
But in this case, if we can try some good things for curing, then why not?
Just because of the thought that medicine will cure us, will not get us anywhere. Rather it is impacting us, without our knowledge. Just think about it.
