The Problem with Most Prescription Medications

Are the medications you're taking really that necessary? According to John & Dr. Bens, the most likely are not. They say most prescriptions should mostly be avoided altogether! 

You've probably had an experience much like John's, where you head to the doctor with a complaint, he hands you a prescription, and when you pick it up at the pharmacy, along with the pills are pages and pages of warnings and side effects. Most of us probably just throw them out, but it's time to give those pamphlets a readthrough.

Once you block something with a prescription, then the body has to try to find a workaround. And then with the workaround, we end up getting a lot of side effects and things that really weren't intended for the body when it was first designed.

this episode touches on the problem with most prescription medications, what the media isn't telling you,  misleading commercials, and if you choose to stay on your prescriptions, our hosts offer some supplements to take to balance out the effects of the pills.
