The “Pop a Pill” Culture in Our Society
Did you know that it is estimated that 73.9% of all doctor’s visits involve drug therapy?
Or that it is estimated that 48.6% of people in the US are taking at least one medication?
When I look at those numbers, they are staggering to me…
While I am not anti-medication and believe that medications are at times necessary and even life-saving, when I read those numbers it reminds me that we have been culturally conditioned to just take a pill to deal with our symptoms.
We live in a “pop a pill” culture where medication is seen by doctors (along with surgery) as the answer to our problems.
Yet how many times are we told when given those medications that they will be life long and that the problem will never resolve? So that doesn’t really make them a true solution…
Over the past 10 years, I’ve had the privilege to support clients in reducing and eliminating medications (under medical monitoring as I am not a doctor)—many times medications they were told that they would be on permanently.
When we actually start to understand symptoms as intelligent communication from our bodies and we begin digging to find the roots of those symptoms, then that is when true healing can begin.
The body doesn’t have to keep talking to us in the language of symptoms and we can support giving our bodies what they really need for true healing.
If this sounds like an approach that resonates with you, reach out and let’s chat.
I work with clients on a range of health issues including chronic pain, autoimmune diseases, women’s hormone issues, digestive issues, allergies, and the impact stress and trauma is having on health.
There are REAL solutions to support your body in healing so you can feel energized and alive again, feel good in your body again, and get back to living the life your REALLY want, not a life dictated by your symptoms.
