For many people this would have been a great solution. Pop some pills and the problem is gone. For me though, at 18 years old, I just could not bring myself to believe that I would need to be on a prescription medication for the rest of my life. It just did not make any sense. As a result, I took control of my health. I started reading, I started learning, I started asking my health care providers more questions rather than simply listening. I started working with holistic practitioners and I changed my ill-fate.
