Prescribed Drugs

Drug taking, whether prescribed or ‘social’, is a complex issue and presents difficulties for practitioners, patients and the general public. Many patients attending holistic practitioners take prescribed drugs. This complicates treatment and case management as drugs alter symptoms. In some cases, they may lead to further deterioration in health. The regaining of health may involve their reduction or removal.

The key issue for holistic practitioners is how to safely manage a patient who takes prescribed drugs. Such cases tend to be more complex to diagnose, treat and manage. With careful thought and analysis it is possible to clarify the most appropriate course of action in any individual case. In this way, the course of treatment can be guided to be smoother and more beneficial. My textbook, The Prescribed Drug Guide, is an excellent account of how to navigate these issues.

So, to this end, I offer a number of solutions. Firstly, is supervision (sometimes called mentoring) where you are able to discuss cases with me which are complicated by the use of prescribed drugs. This clinical support smoothest the course of treatment and aids your management of the case.

A further source of help is with educational seminars. I offer a number of online courses on prescribed drugs – overview of case management, specific drug types, how to safely manage prescribed drug withdrawal (with an emphasis on tapering of drug dosage), liaison with other health care practitioners and so forth.
