This webinar is an introduction into the evidence that even well-chosen prescription agents push patients into disease states.
While Americans continue to break records in spending habits for prescription drugs, our health statistics are steadily declining. The disease states we see all too commonly—hypertension, cholesterol issues, type II diabetes; depression, anxiety, sleep disorders—can actually be caused by pharmaceutical agents designed to combat one of the other problems.
- Identify commonly presenting complaints and the drugs that likely caused them
- Appreciate how insidious and widespread a problem using pharmaceuticals to cover symptoms is
- Recognize the importance of thinking critically—and naturopathically—to keep patients safe
- Understand the concept of drugs begetting the next disease state
