Some people have the myth that all diseases are curable with medicines, for ultimate healing! And no need to do anything by themselves. They think that no need to follow the correct lifestyles, there are medicines there are cures! These ideas are not true in fact. Where is our chance to change our lifestyles? Physicians also give emphasis on medicines! So, medicine producing companies and representatives of the pharmaceutical industries always keep themselves busy to motivate the doctors and physicians. This is a business style now. Doctors and patients both sides consider that taking medicine is easier than to make changes in lifestyles.
According to the American Center for Disease Control in every month, about 48% of Americans are taking some kinds of medicine through prescription and the percentage is continuously rising for the last decades. In fact, Americans expanded 234 billion dolors in the year 2008 against prescribed medicines.
Chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, cancer etc are nowadays called lifestyle diseases.In lack of physical exercise habit, it’s almost impossible to control diabetes. About 25 million people of America are suffering from diabetes. It wasn’t possible to cure all diabetic patients even they were detected as diabetic. Medicament was given to those patients. Insulin was given to those patients to make them healed. Diabetic food menus are also suggested to them and they are given advice for physical exercises but these suggestions seem to be less important than medicine. Medicine is not the ultimate solution of these problems.
Patients are to give emphasis to the overall lifestyles of themselves and necessary changes in their lifestyles should be done immediately without late.
