Public awareness that lifestyle changes can make a vast difference in our health. 2. Media’s news of problems with many medications . Causing doubt in our minds and a desire to find a more effective answer.3. Politics & Bottom Line profits seem to be the guiding force in government and pharmacy companies, not our safety and well being.4. Realization that many recommended surgical procedures and medications are not the safest and most effective way to handle many problems. .
