I don't take any of the following:
- Over the counter medication
- Prescription medications
- I don't have 'regular checkups"
I shun almost everything that modern medicine has to offer and, I don't get sick!
I should predicate this by saying that most of my work has been overseas in developing countries. I eat from roadside food places often, drink the water on hand, travel in airplanes with recirculated air and germ producing passengers.
I'm a firm believe in the "hygiene hypothesis".
Now there is a place for modern medicine. Acute medical care, such as trauma care, is needed. You won't heal compound fracture with good diet and herbs.
But most of modern medicine is focused on treating pre-diseases and it is done with chemicals (prescription and OTC drugs), medical procedures, etc.....all high-profit of course.
However, that is just me. Your mileage may very.
