Too Much Medication!
[from Third Age Health, ed. by Dr. Joan Vernikos]
According to Dr. Andrew Weil (proponent of integrative medicine and alternative healing) we are taking too many medicines. In his new book, “Mind over Meds”, he 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. He goes on to advise to “[t]ake a look at ways you might reduce the number of medications you take,” quoting Dr. Joel Wallach as saying “The sign of a good doctor should be how many patients he can get off medication, not how many people he puts on medications.”
