This is weird, I thought I had posted to this thread and it actually went to "thread662174" so I have copied my reply below:
S&F for this thread.
I would hate to think that those of us who "choose" to use natural remedies rather than "manufactured medicines" to obtain relief from our
ailments will be forced to support the large pharmaceutical companies bottom line.
It's already hard enough to eat foods that are not laced with additives, preservatives, fillers and other ingredients that the normal person cannot
even pronounce let alone explain what they are. And the truly sad thing is the foods that are best for us cost more than the 'highly processed'
I know myself that a rheumatologist had me taking Mobicox for arthritis in my knees and wrists and when I complained that I was having stomach upsets
from it he added another drug Pariat (sp) to counter the effects of the first drug. Well I took these medicines for a little over a year until the
"Celebrex" side effects issue came into the MSM. I told my family doctor that I no longer wanted to be on these drugs and was quitting them, his
comment was to try it and see how it goes. Well it has now been 5-6 years, and yes I still have days when my knees ache in the mornings and I use A535
like hand cream, but I would rather have some pain and rely on exercise to keep moving than depend on too many drugs and worry about interactions.
This same specialist wanted to inject cortisone into my shoulder to relieve the symptoms of a "frozen shoulder". An affliction that will eventually
work itself out over time if you perform exercises to keep it moving and listen to your own limitations. For some who can't, or won't invest the
time and effort , maybe that is an option--but not for me.
I guess if they can take away our herbal remedies, then they will begin to attack the massage therapists, physiotherapy and acupuncture/acupressure
practitioners, faith healers, and nutritionists,etc. Next step would be to prevent those who use the power of thought to cease and desist thinking.
Thanks for letting me vent,
NB: Those who anger you, control you.
