When Medications Work And When They Don’t

On Thursday, I made a rather outlandish claim on Facebook to see what the reaction would be and to get a conversation going. I stated: “It it’s illegal it works, if it’s legal, it doesn’t” – in the context of medications for illnesses. It was after I attended an evening on the medicinal properties of cannabis, mushrooms, ayahuasca, LSD and MDMA. It caused a small backlash – as well as lots of people agreeing with this statement. So here are my thoughts on when medications work and when they don’t.

Let me explain what I meant by that. Whilst drugs can save lives, and they can’t be beaten in emergencies, in my opinion, for illnesses related to inflammation and autoimmunity, they’re ineffective. They simply manage symptoms, allowing the individual to live symptom-free, but never treat the root cause, which is inflammation in almost every case. When this is left untreated, it worsens and we now know that chronic inflammation quite literally the foundation for EVERY chronic disease – including type-2 diabetes, most forms of cancer,  cardiovascular disease (heart attacks and strokes), metabolic syndrome, autoimmune diseases and more. Not only that, but the drugs come with nasty side effects and cause further problems down the road. Who would want to let that be untreated? 

I believe pharmaceutical drugs have their place for emergencies and for anaesthesia and in a few cases of illnesses to make them manageable – such as Type-1 diabetes, when your pancreas does not produce sufficient insulin. Type-1 diabetics therefore need to take insulin or they’d die. For type-2 Diabetes, drugs are ineffective, toxic, cause side effects and further complications down the road. They do not HEAL the body. This is really what I mean by suggesting legal drugs don’t work. They do not heal the body. I created a program specifically for type-2 diabetes here. Please share with anyone you know it will benefit. Treating type-2 diabetics with medications it the equivalent of treating alcoholics with vodka and suggesting pain killers to moderate head aches. Type-2 diabetes is a disease of insulin resistance – too much insulin resistance, when your cells are no longer responsive to the hormone, insulin. Yet conventional medicine says to take more insulin, and moderate blood sugars with Metformin. Hmmm.

Do you know of anyone who’s been taking medications who has healed and reversed their illness and come off the medications? I struggle to think of a single example. Who takes high blood sugar medications and then comes off them because they have solved the problem (without changing diet or lifestyle)? Do you know of anyone on statins who has been taken off them because cholesterol is back to normal? I struggle. 

On the other side of the coin, I know of tons of people who have healed their bodies of just about every condition you can think of, by coming off medication, and healing their bodies with nutritional and lifestyle changes – and by managing emotions, namely stress and trauma. (Chronic stress is highly toxic to the body and trauma that has never been dealt with can quite literally build the foundations for inflammation and chronic disease to develop.)

What do you think? What are your thoughts on this? I’d love to hear them. I can only speak from my own personal experience of helping others, interviewing lots of people. and my copious amounts of research and obsessing over this subject matter!

Personally, I’ve helped people come off medications and helped people heal their bodies of pre-diabetes, type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, rheumatoid arthritis, IBS, skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis and in one particular case, someone’s symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease disappeared when she was reversing her type-2 diabetes with my support.

Some of my interviews with people who have healed their bodies are on my podcast. These “incurable” conditions include multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, psoriasis,  chronic pain, endometriosis, gastro paresis (paralysis of the stomach), osteoporosis, prostate cancer and more. Check them out here.

What do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts. This is for discussion!
