Medication – Pushed or Prescribed?
Do we know if we are being pushed or prescribed into addiction?
Big Pharma may have just taken one of the greatest rock voices in our generation, from medication that is “supposed” to better your health. Medication, we’ve all been prescribed something at some point. According to his wife, Chris Cornell lead singer and songwriter of Soundgarden, a rock band, was acting unusual. “When we spoke after the show, I noticed he was slurring his words; he was different,” his wife added. “When he told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two, I contacted security and asked that they check on him.” Later they would find Chris dead from an apparent suicide.
HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?
Ativan (lorazepam), a prescription medication used for anxiety and insomnia, list among its possible adverse effects the following: Can cause paranoid or suicidal ideation and impair memory, judgment and coordination. Maybe just enough of a reality shift to cause someone so talented, in the prime life, with a loving wife and children, touring with close friends, adored by millions to just end it all. It makes complete drug sense…Why not get to the root cause of the insomnia or anxiety?
WILL WE LEARN FROM THIS?
Prince (fentanyl), Michael Jackson (propofol), Scott Weiland (cocaine and amphetamines) all died from drug overdoses – drugs KILL, whether pushed or prescribed, whether you’re famous or unknown. Although it takes more work and effort, it’s far safer to face and fix the cause of your suffering than chemically running away from it. Life is best lived CLEAR rather than under the influence. Chiropractic is a safe alternative to medication. Get to the root of the problem, don’t just cover up the symptoms with medication, try Chiropractic Care.
