Drugs are generally defined as synthetic chemicals or substances that alter or change normal biochemical reactions of the body in order to achieve a desired result. For example, many street drugs act by altering the nervous system or brain chemistry to elicit feeling of euphoria, while pharmacological drugs act specifically on organs and systems to decrease pain, alter blood chemistry, regulate hormone production, or modify signal transduction pathways. Synthetic chemical drugs are available to address almost any symptom. Conditions associated with weak digestion, overburdened detoxification pathways, or altered biological terrain are now being addressed with synthetic chemicals rather than diet and exercise.
Pharmacological drugs are designed to work on a specific biochemical pathway. However, once in the body, they are able to exert effects on other pathways aside from the intended target, resulting in a variety of undesirable effects. Drugs are now prescribed to counter the side effects created by other medications a patient is taking, which further exacerbates the problem and leads to a deregulation of the normal biochemical pathways of the body.
Chronic use of synthetic chemical drugs, whether pharmacological or recreational in nature, leads to congestion and an overload of the body’s detoxification systems. These synthetic chemicals place a strain on the liver, kidney and other organs of detoxification that attempt to metabolize these drugs in the body.
