Discontinuation or medication reduction in chronic patients is often derived from fear and the attending physician's response.

A medicine cabinet.

It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop."

Confucius (551 BC – 479 BC) was a Chinese teacher, politician, and philosopher. By Simran Khurana (Updated March 18, 2017)

A sharp reduction in the use of drugs is essential for the long-term rehabilitation of the immune system. Most chronic patients have an uncontrollable fear of stopping medication or reducing medication intake, especially when it comes to severe and prolonged chronic illnesses.


Prolonged use of drugs can interfere with self-healing processes.

The main difficulty stems from the lack of support from the medical establishment and the attending physician, particularly for a sharp reduction in drug use. Often the patient is even warned not to stop taking medication! Therefore, personal responsibility and courage are required to make decisions contrary to medical advice.

  • Most chronic patients receive massive medication, including a wide range of drugs, such as antibiotics, steroids, painkillers, sedatives, antidepressants, sleeping pills, hypertension medicines, Lipitor, anticoagulants, receptor blockers supplements, minerals, and more.
  • I took about 100 pills a day at the height of the disease and other various preparations in drops. My condition only got worse. Following a recommendation from my attending physician in China, I discontinued all drug treatment immediately! Stopping drug treatment involves fear and requires courage on the patient's part to take responsibility for himself.
  • The treatment of the self-healing method for chronic patients usually lasts months, up to years. Most patients suffer from bouts of acute symptoms during the recovery period that may send the patient back to the medicine cabinet! (Wrong decision) 

Only when the patient believes and understands that the drugs only cause him long-term harm will he withstand the suffering of discontinuing the drug treatment.

Valuable tips on how to stop or gradually reduce your medication intake.

It is essential to take extra care when reducing or stopping the medication. It is advisable to reduce a different drug each time and test the effect.


  • Paradoxically, most doctors are not in a hurry to recommend a sharp reduction or complete medication cessation. So I stopped asking for their advice and took full responsibility for my actions. (Otherwise, I would not have been alive for a long time!) I go to the doctor to perform various laboratory tests to assess my condition and improve my feel.
  • It is essential to understand the self-healing method principles because you will be asked by family and friends why you are endangering yourself! Although the opposite is exact.
  • A healthy diet and a lifestyle will significantly reduce the inflammatory reactions involved in stopping taking the medications.
  • Try using naturopaths and switch to herbs instead of prescription drugs. Herbs have side effects and contraindications but are usually less harmful; the active ingredients' composition is usually lower than pharmaceuticals.
  • Massage for its various types is very relaxing and helps in better sleep.
  • Controlled sun exposure has the potential to reduce various types of pain significantly.
  • Acupuncture may be painful, but it is an excellent painkiller. (Usually, several treatments are required)
  • Drinking freshly squeezed juices is an excellent recipe for reducing inflammation in the body and a quick recipe for significantly relieving various pains.


The first period is usually the most difficult mentally. Physically, there may be painful periods during the recovery.

When the improvement is already felt, the option of the medicine cabinet no longer exists.


Frequently asked questions and answers:
Are there drugs that cure chronic diseases?
To the best of my knowledge, there is not even one drug that cures acquired chronic diseases. The philosophical explanation is that drugs are meant to alleviate the symptoms and cannot strengthen the immune system and act against the causes of any chronic illness.
Why does taking medication to interfere with self-healing mechanisms?
All drugs are broken down and neutralized in the liver, which is already overloaded due to the inflammatory disease. The body's physiology works with refeeding mechanisms that go wrong with long-term medication.
According to my doctor's advice, I continue taking prednisone at a lower dose. Can I start self-healing physical therapies?
Steroids prevent an inflammatory response of the immune system but do not cure the disease from which you suffer. An anti-inflammatory diet is recommended. Mechanical detoxification should be postponed until you feel further improvement in your condition.
I admit that I have not been able to convince my close friends to abandon drugs to treat chronic diseases.
Although I was able to convince my close friends who suffer from chronic diseases that they only treat the symptoms of the disease, and have no chance of recovery, most of them were unwilling to consider stopping the medication! A phenomenon I call the "fear effect."
Is it advisable to stop drug therapy at once or in stages?
The answer to the question is not uniform for everyone. I abruptly stopped taking about 100 pills a day! At the same time, caution is required. Sometimes, a sudden break can cause unnecessary damage. I recommend exercising discretion.
Is it mandatory to have a medicine cabinet at home?
Most people keep a stock of medicines at home. (sometimes excessive inventory) I do not use drugs, always keeping at home plasters, lemons, grapefruits, extracts of essential oils, bentonite clay, yogurt (goat), and more. A potent analgesic can be needed, but an entire medicine cabinet only invites addiction.
