Hema laments the growing trend of people taking dangerous medications for even the most common of colds, and prescribes some natural alternatives encouraged from Quran and Sunnah.
So, here’s a worrying fact I heard the other day: 1 in 6 people in the UK are depressed. Even more worrying is the amount of people that are being prescribed anti-depressant drugs, despite the evidence that they don’t work for everyone. I’m not just blaming doctors or the medical profession here. The public in general want a quick fix to their problems, and believe doctors can solve everything through giving them a “magic” pill. How may of these people have tried to sit down and work out the cause of their problems instead of relying on pills?
