In the movie The Matrix remeber the Red pill and the Blue pill?
They were symbolic of the characters desire to wake up or remain asleep. Basiaclly to live or die. Aside from the actual properties of the pill for many taking medication is symbolic of the desire to live.
For others the meds may symbolize defeat or weakness. What do medications symbolize in your mind. If they have positive connotations for you I suspect, given a beneficial med will allow you to become 'better' if not quite well.
Taking medication that is at least somewhat beneficial for my condition gives me a symbolic focus while the more subtle psychological healing is working away in the background.
I am one to light colored candles to help manifest the desired result (ex. pink for love, grean for growth etc.) A friend asked me once "Do you REALLY think those candles are doing ANYTHING? I said that of course I din't think burning colored wax had any inherent power, but that I thought my mind did and that they served the pupose of keeping my mind focused to my intent.
What we focus on does manifest and I am so highly distractable.
The candles my be of questionable value but so long as you do not set fire to your house why doubt that they may have subtle powers that aid your cause?
Avoid overtly damaging tools and make the most of the gentle.
