Too Much Medication!
[from Third Age Health, ed. by Dr. Joan Vernikos]
According to Dr. Andrew Weil (the well-known proponent of integrative medicine and alternative healing), we are taking too many medicines. In his new book “Mind over Meds,” Weil talks about how doctors are contributing to the overuse of drugs, and why many of the medicines we buy at pharmacies and supermarket may be harming our health. Take a look at ways you might reduce the number of medications you take. In Dr. Joel Wallach’s words, “The sign of a good doctor should be how many patients he can get off medication, not how many people he puts on medications.”
