Abuse of painkillers and other medication is sending as many people to the emergency room as the use of illegal drugs. In 2008, ERs saw an estimated 1 million visits from people abusing prescription or over-the-counter medicines — mostly painkillers and sedatives. That was about the same number of visits from those overdosing on heroin, cocaine and other illegal drugs. Only five years prior, illegal drug visits outnumbered those from legal medications by a 2 to 1 margin.
Drug use, both illegal AND legal is risky business. Pay close attention to the side effect warning in every drug commercial and you’ll agree. The medical philosophy of ‘better health through better chemistry’ is flawed, unpredictable and dangerous at best. Instead, Chiropractors advocate a safer approach ‘better health through better Power.’
Your body wasn’t built to be a dumping ground for every pill, potion and shot that comes along. There’s an intelligent regenerating Power within you, capable of keeping your body’s chemistry in perfect balance. As long as it flows unrestricted through your Nerve System, you’ll enjoy health. But if it becomes suppressed (Subluxated), you’ll grow sickness and disease. Drugs do NOT create health. Health comes from “Breaking Bad Subluxations” and giving your innate Power a chance to do the job.
