I was just wondering if I;m the only one feeling the same, but would like to hear from othes in the same proverbial boat: i don't want to take any medication. I've always only ever reluctantly taken a paracetamol for only the worst of headaches, but now I don't even want to take my asthma medication, on the thought that I just don't want to have chemicals screwing with my system, basically! I am a bit of a hippy admittedly, but even so I just do not feel comfortable with this.
I was ok (just about) with taking ventolin and then seretide, but as my seretide dosage is constantly being upped, and now being on montelukast, i just don't like the idea of these chemicals stopping what seems to be a natural reaction for my body.Does anyone else feel like this?
The meds DO help, but I am not a particularly severe asthmatic, and don't think I'm at any great risk. My boyfriend is very understanding and says that I really should take them ( he's seen some pretty bad attacks come out of me!) but that it is my choice.
Are there any ""less harsh""/less steroidal meds out there? Any homeopathic/alternative remedies? And am i the only one to think this way?
Thanks in advance
