We use prescription medications too much, neglecting simpler, safer and more effective options. Conventional and alternative therapies provide relief, but neither is as powerful as the essential health habits. No prescription drug, herb, or supplement can replace those habits. Nearly every health problem can be improved or even cured by making simple changes. This is the way to feel better now, while becoming healthier at the same time. Throughout his career, Michael Carlston, MD, has encountered many patients with chronic health issues who continue to suffer in spite of carefully following their doctor's orders. He has seen those same patients overcome their ill health and reduce or eliminate their need for prescription drugs by implementing practical lifestyle changes.
