Last month when i was in kerala i made a big mistake, i spoiled a record in the making. Now its not some serious record but a personal one. When i was in 5th or 6th class i became terribly sick i couldn’t stop shitting, it went on for some 2 months. I had loose motions for a whole month, i would shit in bed itself without knowing, or on the way to toilet, slowly cough type of thing i was shitting, then i was shitting blood. It was pretty serious i had almost became a cage of bones. A doctor was being consulted all this while, he kept on giving different medicines but none will have any effect on me. At last it got cured with some medicine. Now every other day i was being taken to the doctor and he would charge his consulting fee. After a week he stopped taking fee, and when i was totally cured he gave back all the fee that was given to him. He said in this kind of case ppl generally change their doctors but since you trusted me through all these period i cant take the fee.
Now i had taken a whole lot of medicines during this period and none of them worked this incident asked me to question “The pill” does it really work?. After that for a long period i didn’t fell sick i would sometime have fever or head-ache, cold has always been a permanent disease. I stopped taking medicines for above mentioned normal illness. If i had headache or fever i would just suffer it out, and i would be back to normal in 2 – 3 days. I never went to doctor, i mean i never got any serious illness, the only time i went to doctor was when i would get fractured i.e. 5 to 6 times both my hands and both legs had been fractured, mostly in bike accident. The last was when i fell from tree and broke both my legs.. The doctor would also give medicine but i wouldn’t eat. And when we were into drugs one day all of our group decided to quit, most of them went for rehabilitation, those who didn’t had to go to hospital and get admitted as everyone had high temperatures, cold, pain in body, loose motion these are the normal withdrawal symptoms.. I alone suffered it out a home.
Now when i was in kerala, i was having gand phadu fever, i pulled along for a week with fever, now a week is the threshold. i wondered if its malaria, dengue or chicken guniya because there were a lot of mosquitoes there, also i was at a different place so i lost my conviction and took a paracetamol. Bhenchod! within half an hour the fever was gone. My first expression “Oh shit! pills do work, second expression “fuck, i shouldn’t have eaten it, my record is gone” All these years of chemical free body has just got it first consignment of chemical”.
All these years, i had fever, head-ache, pain in the testicles, vomiting, loose-motions, pain in ears, bleeding gums, back pain, also i went mad one time (this story later) and many other things, but what i learnt is that if u can wait, it will go away on its own. And with every disease my conviction to not see a doctor or take medicine grew stronger. Don’t we have our own defense system against disease in our body, why do we have to pop that pill at the fall of an hat. Why do we have to go to the doctor, hasn’t the billion years of evolution made any arrangement for this. I m no doctor, and not some one who has a bit of knowledge of this field, but i have a mind that thinks, that questions do we really need to reach for that pill. We are taking the short-cut but as they say short-cut never works, u will repent a short cut. When we get sick the body fights the disease, and the next time its much more easier for the body to fight, it has now got experience in fighting so the chances are the next time you wont have the same disease, because now your body is immune to it, but if we take that pill, next time you will need the pill again + in more quantity. Now what will happen if u take pill every time the body will loose its natural defense system because it knows that u r going to pop a pill. The best thing to do is to allow your body to develop your own vaccine rather than making urself a chemical dump ground. Even the mosquitoes develop immunity to a repellent within some time, have u noticed that they dont die any more. Doesnt our body have the capacity to resist the disease.
I am not talking about not taking medicines for serious illness, but normal illness. We can decide today what is right, and i m sure these normal over the counter medicines will cause problem and lead to other diseases later in the life. Slowly the results are getting out, you can see the number of medicines that were the craze before getting banned these days. It will happen with all the medicines that we are taking today in future. And let me tell you normal home remedies works.
i have lot to say but will keep it short.
