Why are we taking so many medications? Is there a better path to healthier and happier lives?
Just as Americans are embracing new ways of healing amid uncertainties in healthcare, a national opioid epidemic, and a rise in lifestyle-related diseases, Dr. Andrew Weil released his 15th book, Mind Over Meds: Know When Drugs Are Necessary, When Alternatives Are Better – and When to Let Your Body Heal on Its Own.
Balancing prescription drugs with integrative medicine, Dr. Weil explores how natural approaches – from acupuncture and Chinese herbs to meditation and breathing techniques – can help treat common ailments like high blood pressure, allergies, mood disorders, and the common cold.
Dr. Weil is a pioneer in the fields of health, wellness, and integrative medicine. Internationally recognized for his views on healthy living, aging, and the future of medicine, Dr. Weil was named one of “the world’s 100 most influential people” and one of “the 25 most influential Americans” by TIME.
Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, he founded the Arizona Center in 1994 to include courses on mind-body interactions, nutrition, herbs, and botanicals. His books, including the international bestsellers Spontaneous Happiness, Eight Weeks to Optimum Health and Healthy Aging, have sold over 10 million copies.
