Many of the people I work with as well as many of my peers and friends are on various medications. I’ve even witnessed clients in their 20’s on up to 5 medications for various ailments prescribed by different doctors for different issues. We need to start looking at the body as a whole and not separate parts.
Let me start by saying I do believe in medication IF absolutely necessary. To me that means you’re in an emergency situation, or you’ve examined the underlying causes of your problem and made significant changes in your diet and lifestyle to reduce inflammation and see if that shifts anything for you BEFORE you resort to taking pills. We live in a society where there is a magic pill for everything, yet sadly all these pills are just acting as band-aids and not truly fixing the underlying issues. AND, as you’ll read in Dr. Lipman’s article below, they cause many more symptoms too. I had many meds suggested to me by various doctors many years ago when dealing with my own symptoms, before I discovered the root cause and changed my life. You can read more about my story here.
Many patients who see me are on two or more medications. Often, the negative effects of the first medication lead to the prescription of a second drug.
Leo came to see me because he felt that his current array of doctors—an internist, a cardiologist, a rheumatologist, and a psychiatrist—just weren’t making him well. A lawyer in his mid-50s, Leo had gone for a routine physical and was found to have high cholesterol and mildly elevated blood pressure, two conditions that had led to a veritable cascade of medications.
