It is not that medicines are unimportant and have no role to play. They are life saving, essential in many instances, and must be used with awareness. But they should not be employed indiscriminately or arbitrarily. They should be used with caution and care, and prescribed only where there is a real danger to the organism. The body cannot be treated like a stupid child. A deeper understanding of the body is mandatory. It is a learning for every human being and cannot be restricted only to health care professionals.
