Many people assume when they go to the doctor, the odds are they are going to walk out with some sort of prescription. Whether it is for an acute problem, such as a cold (and a corresponding antibiotic), or a chronic condition, such as pain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, or any other number of problems, the answer is usually going to be a drug. This is, often the best modern medicine has to offer, regardless of the situation. 

In many cases, prescription drugs play a vital role in keeping people’s health problems from worsening. Take antibiotics, for example; what were once fatal infections before the invention of these drugs are now easily cured, and they have undoubtedly saved millions of lives over the last century. Or, take drugs that treat high blood pressure, or diabetes; these conditions that can usher in an untimely end for many millions of people can now be controlled with drugs, preventing much unwanted misery. 

Sometimes, drugs are the answer; they save lives and prevent much pain and suffering. But should they be the first thing you decide to use to combat health problems?

Take the issue of type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a condition that is controlled by drugs should you be diagnosed with it. Many classes of drugs might be used in the case of diabetes. But if you have been diagnosed with diabetes, or if you are on the brink of it––like so many people are––have you considered other factors before deciding to take prescriptions?

Eating the right foods to feel great bookDiabetes is known as a lifestyle disease; in other words, it is heavily influenced by factors such as diet, exercise and all the other lifestyle factors that science continues to affirm play a very real role in the health we do or do not experience. And while drugs may pick up the slack, personal choices about what you eat and how much you exercise can very much influence your health outcomes. Very often, however, lifestyle choices are downplayed. 

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, as they say; have you tried changing your diet? Implementing an exercise regimen? After you do those, have you integrated some supplants into your regimen? Made a conscious effort to get enough sleep and control your stress levels? Even in the case of acute problems, like a cold––have you tried supporting your immune system with rest, plenty of water, and good nutrition? 

Sometimes drugs are necessary. But they should not necessarily be the go-to modality when it comes to your health. Work with your doctor, ask questions, and make a conscious effort to be in control of your health.
