Too many Americans are taking too many drugs -- and it's costing us our health, happiness, and lives. Prescription drug use in America has increased tenfold in the past 50 years, and over-the-counter drug use has risen just as dramatically. In addition to the dozens of medications we take to treat serious illnesses, we take drugs to help us sleep, to keep us awake, to keep our noses from running, our backs from aching, and our minds from racing. Name a symptom, there's a pill to suppress it. Modern drugs can be miraculously life-saving, and many illnesses demand their use. But what happens when our reliance on powerful pharmaceuticals blinds us to their risks? Painful side effects and dependency are common, and adverse drug reactions are America's fourth leading cause of death. In Mind over Meds, bestselling author Dr. Andrew Weil alerts readers to the problem of overmedication, and outlines when medicine is necessary, and when it is not. Dr. Weil examines how we came to be so drastically overmedicated, presents science that proves drugs aren't always the best option, and provides reliable integrative medicine approaches to treating common ailments like high blood pressure, allergies, depression, and even the common cold. With case histories, healthy alternative treatments, and input from other leading physicians, Mind over Meds is the go-to resource for anyone who is sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Recent studies show that the number of people suffering with seasonal allergies has been skyrocketing and is expected to continue increasing into the foreseeable future. And in the United States alone, 65 million people suffer with seasonal allergies on a regular basis. In Dr. Psenka's Seasonal Allergy Solution, author and naturopathic physician Dr. Jonathan Psenka tells readers they can--and should--aim for a cure. Readers will discover how people often attempt to manage the symptoms of their seasonal allergies with pills, sprays, drops, and even painful shots. But very few of these medications treat the cause, so symptoms are likely to return year after year. Dr. Psenka has developed a highly detailed, fourstep plan, so readers will finally target the root cause of their seasonal allergies and be free of allergy medication. By following Dr. Psenka's advice on how to use natural remedies before, during, and after allergy season, readers can finally wave good-bye to their pesky runny noses and scratchy throats.
