Some of the prescriptive medicines mentioned in the link to this article are very old ones, still used occassionally by doctors or inquired about by people near long, along in age.
It is well known(and felt by patients-our main concern here, individual lives deserving quaility of life for what they have lost due to trauma/disease/congenital heritance) that palliative pain care nationwide has never been improved, let alone dispensed only in a bottle.Not even near, nor at the moment of death. Tolls have been taken,ignorantly, generation after generation because of families, churches, organizations, medical providers not understanding the value of human life, let alone the value of the dying phase. Shame on us! Even the Catholic Church has denounced this lack of palliative care(I have a library on death and dying care and I don't 'need' to warp-quote anyone's Bible).
Instead, we are hurrying us top species(?) toward death and NOW the death chamber(forboding Big Gov). Where is the incentive to survive, advance, imporove our species existence on this planet?
I will, otherwise, NOT endorse alternative, nor legally banned alternatives that further deteriorate moral fiber and discovery of what factual medical can add. Encourage those who can.
