Despite what drug purveyors may tell you, not all drugs are health drugs. In fact, many drugs are quite the opposite – they have can be harmful to your health. So how do you distinguish between health drugs and the drugs that can demolish your well-being? In a word, you can’t.
The average person has no idea what constitutes a health drug and what isn’t. Health drugs are used to promote health true, but it doesn’t mean that that is all they do. Almost all drugs have side effects; they can cause reactions that aren’t called for or necessary. To believe that all drugs are health drugs is just plain crazy.
The only people who are qualified to categorize drugs are those who have studied them and worked with them for a long time. This short list includes doctors, pharmacists, and herbalists. These people have had years of experience dealing with drugs, so they know which ones are health-inducing and which ones are health-damaging. Even though they are experts though, they are frequently wrong. What more the average person on the street?
People often take drugs for the flimsiest reasons. Just because someone else told you that a drug worked for them it doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for you. This is especially true with medicine that does not have a proven track record, such as the many herbal remedies that are available today. While those who sell these medicines will incessantly claim that these drugs improve health, how can you be sure? You can be certain that they’ll throw a lot of positive testimonials at you, but in the end you will have to make an intelligent decision or suffer some future pain.
When you are trying to find and use health drugs, try not to rely too much on your personal judgment. Unless you are medical professional, your opinion does not count for much anyway. Base all your decisions on facts and you will be assured of much better results.
