Healthful Living, Page 244

herself, aided by the common blessings of Heaven, has been made tenfold worse by introducing drug poisons into the system, which cause of themselves a destructive disease, forcing into extraordinary action the remaining life forces to war against and overcome the drug intruder.—How to Live, 57.

1042. Sick people who take drugs do appear to get well. With some there is sufficient life force for nature to draw upon to so far expel the poison from the system that the sick, having a period of rest, recover. But no credit should be allowed the drugs taken, for they only hindered nature in her efforts. All the credit should be ascribed to nature's restorative powers.—How to Live, 50.

1043. Powerful poisons are often administered, which fetter nature in all her friendly efforts to recover from the abuse the system has suffered.—How to Live, 49.

Results of Drug Medication

1044. Drugging should be forever abandoned; for while it does not cure any malady, it enfeebles the system, making it more susceptible to disease.—Testimonies For The Church 5:311.

1045. There are more who die from the use of drugs than all who would have died of disease had nature been left to do her own work.—How to Live, 61.

1046. Medicines have no power to cure, but will most generally hinder nature in her efforts.—How to Live, 62.

1047. Medicine deranges nature's fine machinery, and breaks down the constitution. It kills, but never cures.—How to Live, 57.
