Stay Away from Pill Mills
When you are experiencing any type of pain, whether it be back pain, neck pain, knee pain, or chronic headaches, it can be extremely tempting to jump at any possible solution that will eliminate this pain and help you feel normal again. Individuals who suffer from pain and feel this way are the main customers from which “pill mills” thrive and derive most of their business.
What are Pill Mills?
Pill mills are centers which dispense a wide variety of prescription medications to patients that do not actually need the medication. These centers can be extremely dangerous to the health of the general population because they encourage patients to overuse and abuse prescription medication that is unnecessary to heal their pain or ailment.
Furthermore, these pill mills can cause patients to build up a tolerance and immunity to prescription drugs, thereby causing these drugs to fail to function properly when they are actually needed. Unfortunately, pill mills are often difficult for the average individual to recognize and avoid because they are not run by criminals or other unprofessional figures. In fact, they are primarily operated by licensed medical professionals, including doctors and pharmacists, whom most people automatically trust and attribute credibility.
Fortunately, there are several alternative medicine solutions that can help you eliminate whatever pain you’re enduring without forcing you to visit a dangerous and harmful pill mill.
All-Natural Regenerative Medicine
All-natural regenerative medicine can be an excellent alternative to pill mills for those who are experiencing chronic pain in some part of their body. Regenerative medicine is a natural method which helps the body regenerate damaged tissues and organs that can cause extreme pain. It helps return your body to its normal state at which it can function properly and without pain. All-natural regenerative medicine can be used to treat a broad range of pain conditions and other diseases.
Spinal Cord Stimulation
Spinal cord stimulation is another form of alternative medicine that does not require any prescription drugs or other medicine which is commonly dispensed at pill mills. This type of alternative medicine is generally used to treat chronic pain in your back or in any of your extremities. In spinal cord stimulation, skinny wires and a small generator are inserted into the back. Once they are inserted, these devices help block signals that cause chronic pain and thereby eliminate pain sensations by sending electrical currents into the spinal column. Although it is considered a form of alternative medicine, spinal cord stimulation is becoming increasingly accepted due to its excellent success rate in patients suffering from chronic pain.
