The Dangers of Medications

According to statistics, in economically developed Western countries, medication-related deaths rank fifth among all causes of premature death. Surprisingly, people are more likely to die from medications than from many serious diseases! This fact vividly demonstrates the dangers of substitute therapy. When we talk about medications, we often say that they “cure one thing and harm another,” referring to the side effects of their use.

Indeed, the modern pharmaceutical industry does not produce medications without any side effects. Antibiotics, for example, commonly used in the treatment of chronic and acute inflammatory conditions such as cystitis and respiratory diseases, can cause significant harm to the body.

Frequently used medications can lead to dependence. As a result, the dosage needs to be continually increased, leading to the use of more potent drugs, which subject the body to even stronger negative effects. Hormonal treatment for bronchial asthma serves as an example.

Substitutive medication therapy does not guarantee the absence of complications and disease exacerbations. It only addresses the symptoms of the diseases, without eliminating their root causes. For instance, treating arterial hypertension with antihypertensive drugs cannot prevent blood pressure spikes, which can potentially result in a stroke.

Another danger of medication use is the risk of overdose or improper prescription. This is especially true for self-medication with painkillers, sedatives, anti-inflammatory drugs, and others. Trying to treat ourselves based on random advice or advertising promises, without relying on medical knowledge, can have unfortunate consequences. For example, is there a universal remedy for joint pain when the cause can be either arthritis (an inflammatory condition) or osteoarthritis (a degenerative process in the joint tissues)? In the first case, anti-inflammatory therapy is needed, while in the second case, it is completely ineffective. Treating osteoarthritis requires the use of thermal procedures, which are strictly contraindicated for arthritis.

On the other hand, accurately identifying the cause of certain pains can allow us to alleviate them without medications. For instance, taking analgesics for headaches without realizing that the cause lies in spinal problems. The side effects of such treatment are evident, and its effectiveness is zero. Only by treating cervical osteochondrosis can cervicogenic headaches be eliminated without any pills.

Often, long-term, improper use of medications can lead to surgery. However, surgical intervention is not a panacea. For example, treating intervertebral herniation with surgery can result in disability if the nerve endings responsible for leg movement are damaged during the surgical procedure.

All of these problems can be avoided by accurately diagnosing the underlying condition and starting timely treatment using restorative, rather than substitute, medicine. Tibetan medicine provides ample opportunities for this approach.
