Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these Mind Over Meds: Know When Drugs Are Necessary, When Alternatives Are Better – and When to Let Your Body Heal on Its Own I can get now!
I was suspicious at first when I got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited I found this online library....many thanks Kisses
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
so many fake sites. this is the first one which worked! Many thanks
wtffff i do not understand this!

Great health and medication reference
Every day we see countless advertisements for medications. We go to the doctor and expect that we will leave with a prescription that will make us better. But do all of these drugs really make us better? Dr. Andrew Weil in Mind Over Meds helps readers make informed decisions on medication use.
Mind Over Meds goes through most of the commonly prescribed medications in the United States: antibiotics, statins, medicine for Gerd, antihistamines, cold/flu medicines, sleep aids, steroids, psych medicines for adults and children, and several other categories of popularly used medications both over-the-counter and prescribed. Dr. Weil also has writes chapter on over-medication for children and over-medication for the elderly. The last chapter covers medications with a pharmacist, whom Dr. Weil says is an underutilized medical person in the management of medications. All of these chapters were written with other medical personnel who specialize in these areas since Dr. Weil says he is not an expert in each of these areas.
Mind Over Meds could be used as a reference book by reading just the areas that apply to the reader's situation or it could be read straight through like I did. I learned a lot by reading this book and I know I will also use it as a reference book based on that knowledge.
I'm not one that likes to take medications but I think there are times it is necessary to do so. I am also an Andrew Weil fan having read most of his books and followed his anti-inflammatory diet. I like that he is an integretive medicine doctor and works with patients from a holistic perspective and I wish more doctors followed this model. I found Mind Over Meds to be quite interesting. I like that Dr. Weil writes in layman's terms and his books are easy to understand and apply. I would recommend this book to every one to have as a reference and to make informed choices should the need arise either in your own situation or to help your children or elderly parents.
I read an advance reader's edition of Mind Over Meds through Net Galley and Little and Brown publishers. I also purchased a hard copy of this book to keep for future reference.

Profit Motive And Medicine -- A Bad Combination
By Bill Dolworth
I don't have most of the conditions that this book focuses on, but I found it very informative just the same. A major theme of the book is how the profit motive of the pharmaceutical industry is influencing both doctors and patients to rely too much on prescription and over the counter medicines as cure alls. TV advertising for prescription drugs is ubiquitous and the public is often misled. Dr. Weil doesn't fully discount the value of mainstream medications, but instead believes that they are most effective when used in the short term and that possible risks from side effects should be more of a serious concern.
Dr. Weil advocates what is known as an integrative approach to treatment. That is, incorporating into a treatment plan: natural supplements and non-drug, mind-body techniques such as meditation, biofeedback, and breathing exercises. Unfortunately, in my home state, finding a physician who practices integrative medicine is a bit like finding a needle in a haystack. Using the University of Arizona Center of Integrative Medicine search engine, that he recommends, I found only one doctor practicing integrative medicine in the entire state of Massachusetts.
The descriptions of the pros and cons of popular prescription drugs are excellent. A weakness in the overall treatise of the book is that many of the natural supplements cited, come with caveats. It seems that the studies have not conclusively proved that many of them actually work. In a nod to the lay reader, each chapter has two case studies, which kept me engaged in what can be somewhat dry subject matter.
The two best chapters are on the overmedication of children and the elderly. I've read about these issues before, but here it's especially well elucidated.
I learned a lot from Mind Over Meds. it's the first book that I have read from this author. I will go back to it for future reference.

The Truth about Meds
I have always thought prevention toward illness was better than getting sick and taking medications. I have health issues that cannot be
controlled with non-medication means. However, I have health issues that I have been able to prevent medication through diet and life-
style changes. There is a lot of material on the market about drug abuse - legal and illegal. As a senior citizen I am more cautious about
taking any medications because I understand most medications tested today do not include seniors and women (one of which I am). Dr.
Weil's book is right on target with where we are in America today and that too many people are on too many drugs and the sad part is, they
don't know it. Health and education are the keys to better health.
