That’s pretty much my default response to pretty much any pain, malady or physical condition. This approach started for me more than 40 years ago. I abused drugs as a teenager, and when I got clean, I swore off everything. Later, I discovered how much Big Pharma and many physicians are the real drug pushers and dealers of our time. So that only strengthened my resolve. Granted, this approach has its limits. I had quadruple bypass surgery five years ago; obviously I didn’t tell the surgeons to work without anesthetizing me. But when we’re talking about coping with pain, or dealing with maladies and conditions like cholesterol or glucose levels, natural is better, drugs are a (dangerous) last resort. Who’s with me?
