Prescription drugs continue to dominate in the health and wellness world, no matter how much warning people receive. Instead of finding ways to prevent illness and disease through their underlying causes, we turn to prescription drugs that promise us a symptom free lifestyle.
The truth of the matter is, there are natural replacements for prescription drugs. Every time you fill out a prescription, there is a cheaper, healthier, safer alternative that won’t put money into the pockets of money hungry drug companies.
Before we start, here’s a statistic to rattle your chains! Each year 4 billion prescriptions are written, and the United States and Canada makes up for 80% of that number!
Natural Replacements For Prescription Drugs
1. Hydrocodone (Acetaminophen/Vicodin/Oxycontin)

How it works: This drug is an oral narcotic and analgesic
