Do you know anything about pharmaceuticals?
You bet. It is very rare to see a patient that has never been on a pharmaceutical drug at some point in their lives. It is in our best interest to understand how those drugs behave in the body and what side effects they cause. Natural medicines are powerful and it is important to understand if our medicine is going enhance, compliment, or block the effect of the pharmaceutical; either way, this can impact patient's lives greatly and at the end of the day, our goal is to heal the patient and do no harm.
