- The Most Common Allopathic Drugs: Their Effects and Importance
Many of your patients will be taking one or more allopathic drugs. You need to be familiar with the different categories of drugs and their effects on the living organism. Some drugs may be safely discontinued, while others are more critical to maintaining life until more effective and curative treatment can be undertaken. Written by a wholistic pharmacist for the dynamic physician, this material is unique in its approach and in the quality of information and knowledge about drugs it offers for the non-allopathic practitioner.
- The Study of Common Herbs: Their Effects and Importance
Equally many patients today will be taking one or more herbal products, and it is imperative for you to know their effects, both positive and negative, so you can discuss with the patient the advisability of their continuance or discontinuance during treatment. Written by one of the few pharmacists in North America with a comprehensive training in herbs and a deep understanding of the principles of Heilkunst.
Drug/Herb – Nutrient Interactions
Written by a wholistic pharmacist with a deep understanding of drugs, herbs, their interactions and their impact on the nutrient depletion of the patient, this Module gives you the basis to determine what nutrients need to be supplemented because of drugs or herbs being taken by your patients. In the absence of the necessary nutrients, the healing reaction of the Living Power will be less effective and sometimes unable to be completed. Also, the patient will be affected by chemical interactions between drugs/drugs, herbs/herbs and drugs/herbs. For example, many patients will take antidepressants and try St. John’s Wort, which have a similar pharmacological action. This is new information not available anywhere else in such a comprehensive and integrated form.
