Prescriptions Can Be Hazardous To Your Health

An anemic patient is unable to recover because he isn’t taking the prescribed amount of the supplement given to him by his doctor because he received confusing prescription instructions from the pharmacy.

A mother guesses at the dosage of an antibiotic to give her 8- year- old feverish child because she could not understand the prescription she was given.

We have all heard about or received confusing medical information. Just imagine how difficult it must be for someone who doesn’t speak English, the language used in most prescription information inserts and documentation.

According to the National Health Law Program, approximately 4 billion prescriptions are written every year in the United States and many of those are written for the 24 million who do not speak English or who are limited...

Why People Use Drugs

Because many drugs act on the brain’s pleasure pathways, the user experiences intense euphoria followed by related emotional highs.

People are dying from drug abuse and it is not always the drugs sold on streets that are to blame.

This did not sit well with me as a spiritual person who believes that natural is better.

Following my reincarnation and with a strong link to the Spirit of the Universe, the real God, it commissioned me to tear down the barrier that religions have created...

Only the Strong Rest

Are you resting enough between your sessions? The last thing anybody wants to do when you are busting your butt to get in shape or shatter your personal goals is to take a day or two off to rest. A big misconception is if I take time off from exercising I am not improving, but this statement could not be any further from the truth.

What Is Functional Medicine?

Rather than treating just the symptoms of any disease, functional medicine focuses on the underlying cause of disease by using an approach that focuses on the body’s systems and their primary functions. Practitioners work to engage the patient in a partnership that will lead to overall better health and wellness.

Functional medicine practitioners focus on the whole person, rather than just the isolated constellation of symptoms. This shifts medicine from traditional sick care to a more patient-centered approach. These practitioners spend a great deal of time with their patients and listen to histories, while also evaluating the environment, lifestyle, and genetic factors that may play a role in long-term health and the development of chronic disease...
