As doctors, we need to uncover the source of the symptom instead of dashing off yet another prescription that hides the cause.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 30, 2011
As the founder of OIM, an accomplished provider of integrated health solutions in midtown Manhattan, Dr. Ilan Bohm has announced a public awareness campaign against today's dangerous culture of overprescription called "Think Before You Pill."
A leading specialist in neuromuscular skeletal conditions, Dr. Bohm seeks to provide patients with a more integrated and informed approach to health care. "In today's culture of quick fixes, overprescription is reaching epidemic proportions, and can increasingly prove dangerous or fatal," comments Dr. Bohm. "As doctors, we need to uncover the source of the symptom instead of dashing off yet another prescription that hides the cause. I'm simply advocating for better awareness, to diminish the chances of side effects or dangerous drug interactions." Statistics have shown prescription drug death rates skyrocketing in recent years as a leading cause of unintentional injury deaths in the U.S. (Source: "Unintentional Drug Poisoning in the United States," Centers for Disease Control, July 2010).
"Traditional Western medical care offers valid approaches to treating illness, and responsible medication can be a necessary part of treatment," emphasizes Dr. Bohm. "But overmedication can have serious consequences for patients, solving one problem and producing many more. This point of view has resulted in a population that is toxic and overmedicated, while their actual underlying health conditions remain unaddressed."
Dr. Bohm's skills in applied kinesiology, a specialized diagnostic tool, enable him to address the primary imbalances that may develop into symptoms that correlate to organs and muscles, establishing patterns of stress that are in conflict with the body. Dr. Bohm's ability to piece together these imbalances allows him to draw together various techniques to bring about relief care and reversal of the illness process.
"An informed and educated patient has a greater opportunity to cure illness and 'dis/ease,' and to maintain his or her long-term health," he explains, "and at the end of the day, as doctors, we need to provide 'health care, not sick care' to our patients."
