Asheville, NC (PRWEB) August 10, 2008
One of the country's most foremost authors and speakers on the subject of integrative medicine, Dr. Hyla Cass will appear on the August 13th Access to Health Experts teleseminar series. She will discuss the importance of using nutritional supplements when taking prescription medications to prevent your body from losing essential nutrients.
According to Dr. Cass, prescription drugs can rob patients of the vitamins and minerals their bodies need to overcome many health conditions. Since most doctors have little knowledge about nutrition and how it affects your overall health and well-being, it is unlikely that they will inform you how to supplement your prescription. Dr. Cass reports that whether someone suffers from blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic heartburn (GERD), arthritis, diabetes, or depression, the prescription drugs they are taking may actually make their condition worse.
Dr. Cass believes that a doctor should no longer be viewed as an authority figure, but as a health partner. The dynamics of healthcare can be changed through self-education, self-care, and shared responsibility.
At this informational teleseminar you will learn:
- How prescription drugs can rob you of essential vitamins and minerals your body needs to heal
- How to supplement your prescription to avoid unwanted side effects
- The real story behind many chronic conditions
- How to become your own health advocate
- And of course, much more
