Good afternoon!

Did you know approximately one in five prescriptions to elderly people are inappropriate?! Some of the medications with the highest rates of inappropriate use were the antihistamine diphenhydramine, the antidepressant amitriptyline, and the pain reliever propoxyphene.  These findings were published in the online PLOS One in September 2012.

We have to remember that there is no disease, pain, or other problem that is CAUSED by a LACK of medication!  We must train ourselves as well as our communities that pro-active approach to health is much more cost effective and smart then a re-active approach.  Imagine if you waited until your engine froze before changing your oil instead of changing it every 3,000 miles??  Your body is much more complex than an engine and requires more upkeep.  Stay tuned to this blog to stay fresh on the latest things you can do to keep your motor running!

Have a blessed day!
