Should Pharmaceutical Drugs Always Be Used to Treat Disease?

It is common in our modern society to limit the treatment of disease to approved pharmaceutical drugs, but that method is neither logical nor justified. The truth is that other treatment methods have been successfully utilized to improve human health for centuries, often without the side effects that we witness with pharmaceutical drugs. Overall, the universal doctrine of treating diseases only with approved pharmaceutical drugs simply cannot be justified on scientific grounds.

The Food/Medicine Contradiction

For centuries and through countless ancient civilizations, food was considered a functional treatment for disease and a remedy for specific conditions. Yet somehow, our current medical society denies the application of food as medicine despite the fact that many plants comprise the “active ingredients” of some approved drugs. The obvious medical properties of foods used to be recognized in treatments of disease, but the rise of the pharmaceutical industry changed that.

Modern Science Has the Ability to Prove Food’s Value As a Medicine

The contradiction continues in the fact that food was used as a medicine long before scientists had the ability to complete the analytical chemistry to prove food’s usefulness. Today, the means exist to identify the interdependent nature of the organic chemistry of plants and physiological biochemistry in humans. So why is the scientific community not more adamant about finding natural, safe, and effective alternatives to dangerous pharmaceutical drugs?

The Side Effects of Pharmaceuticals

The common occurrence of drug “side effects” is further evidence that pharmaceutical drugs do not support the body’s true health. Issues of drug safety beyond clinical test experiences indicate that these drugs have not been scientifically established as completely safe, despite hundreds of millions of dollars being spent for that purpose.

What’s the Solution? 

Foods like plants and herbs should be accepted as treatments for disease as distinct from actual “cures” and made available to the public without commercial restraint. Manufacturers should be allowed to promote those treatment options without being punished for “illegal drug” status, and specific claims that a food can “cure” a condition should always be backed by clinical test verification.

If this were to occur, then CellQuest’s use of the Musaceas plants could benefit even more people in need of natural treatments. The musaceas plants are actually herbs and include plantain and banana trees that grow in tropical parts of the world. The pseudostems of these plants provide a reservoir of defense compounds that assist the human immune system in maintaining the healthy division of cells.
