Medical Meds For Six Months, And Doing Great!

Until four years ago, when we had a six-way
heart bypass, we had never taken any medical drugs. As a
long distance runner in our youth, no drugs of any kind
could be used.
We grew older, and our body was so healthy it didn’t
need medical drugs, and by 79, it was still untouched by
That was when the doctor said, “This is what we prescribe
for everyone with your condition,” and we started
taking our first blood thinner.
Not good. The drug drove us to the edge of insanity, and
Still, we believed the doctor could not be wrong, and continued
to take the drug long after our body and mind said “STOP!”
As part of our recovery, we turned to psychotherapy to find
out what was the problem. Doctors found nothing.
Our second bout with medical drugs was two years later after
finding out we had cancer of the colon. Once again, medical
drugs were advised, not one but two or three to balance
out. These drugs were also being given “to everyone,”
but with a long list of possible side effects.
Within three weeks, we felt our body and mind change dramatically
and stopped taking the drugs. We went through withdrawal,
which sent us to a mental clinic, and while in the mental
clinic we were forced — against our will by a judge!
— to take medical drugs.
Those drugs had not cleared our body when we left this country
for Mexico last year. Since the drugs were then hard to
get anyway, we stopped taking all drugs! Our therapy was
simply: Sun, fresh air, exercise and low stress.
That was over six months ago, and we have not taken a medical
When people ask how we are doing, we tell them 100 percent!
And we are not lying.
This business of telling people that “this is the
drug which we prescribe for everyone with your condition”
is wrong. Every single person in this world is different.
Every single person is made up with different genes, and
their bodies respond to drugs differently.
We blame the drug makers and those who peddle the drugs
for the problem. No drugs should be prescribed without proper
check ups to see that the drug is really doing what it is
supposed to. That list of possible negative side effects
is real and the warning needs to be heeded.
In one case, we had ordered a prescription and when we went
to pick it up, the pharmacist said it would be three days
before we could have the prescription filled. We asked if
we could pay for the drugs with cash. They said “yes,
the price will be $1,200 for one month’s pills.”
Now with that kind of money, one would think $200 could
be spent on seeing that the drug is actually doing what
it was supposed to do …
Let’s stop this crazy, drug-cure world!
Yes, drugs can be effective, but not in the way “one
serves all.” Drug companies are making a killing at
our expense, and they are actually killing people from the
