Similasan: Why use medication when you can treat your allergies with...well, nothing?
So this woman was prescribed eye drops, but she "started worrying" about all the chemicals she was putting into her eyes....you know, at the recommendation of an actual licensed physician. She doesn't tell us that her doctor "started worrying" or expressed any misgivings about the Actual Medication he had prescribed. No, SHE just woke up one day and decided oh gosh maybe it's not a great idea to put "harsh chemicals" (what us normals call "Medicine") into her eyes.
More likely she was approached by a cousin or an old friend she hadn't seen in years but who now really really wanted to get acquainted and who Oh By The Way was dying to tell her about Herbalife.* Or Essential Oils. Or doTerra. Or whatever. And in fifteen minutes she became convinced that doctors are all CIA agents being paid off by Bayer and Beatrice Foods and the Illuminati to peddle mind control drugs and to Stop the Information from Getting Out that Nature Is All You Need to Heal.
So now instead of paying $12 a month for medication she used to pick up at the local pharmacy, she's paying four times as much for 2 ounces of sterilized water from Switzerland which is of course not covered by her Evil Big Pharma-controlled "health" insurance (more like "sick" insurance! Those companies WANT YOU TO STAY SICK!) which she can also find at the local pharmacy, in the "Natural Foods" section. And feeling very Woke about it, I'm sure. Stupid, but Woke.
*This actually happened to me, about a dozen years ago. I got an email from an old High School friend I had not seen since the 80s who wanted to "catch up" at a local coffee shop. Within three minutes of sitting down he was peddling some $40 per month Miracle Vitamin Regimen. I declined to purchase. Haven't heard from him since. I doubt I'm missing much.
