for nothin’ left to take…
There’s a classic line in the 1960’s Janis Joplin song ‘Me and Bobby McGee’ that goes ‘freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose.’ For the pharmaceutical industry, freedom’s just another word for we’ve got a pill for whatever ails you. But do the prescription drugs and potions they push really free you from anything?
A recent CNN Health News article reported that at her worst, Alesandra Rain was spending more than $900 a month on prescriptions, taking 12 different types of medication amounting to about a thousand pills a month, none able to cure her chronic insomnia and depression. She was slowly losing herself. When you’re on that many different prescriptions it’s hard to recognize where the pills end and you begin… Now that doesn’t sound much like freedom.
For Chiropractors, freedom’s just another word for ‘nothing left to TAKE.’ There’s freedom in knowing that if you have a clear nerve system, you don’t have to take prescription after prescription to keep your body functioning. If you know someone stuck in a downward drug spiral, tell them about the freedom they can achieve with regular Chiropractic care. Thanks for spreading the word!
