Here is the Good News:

Most cardiac morbidity can be avoided by timely behavioral interventions, lifestyle changes, and dietary modifications. The need for emergency procedures and surgery can be vastly reduced.

The need for many drugs can be reduced or eliminated by dietary and other lifestyle changes,
and by non-medical therapies. This holds for:

  • Anti-depressants
    (the # 2 class of drugs)
  • Stimulants
  • Anxiolytics (tranquilizers)
  • Anti-Convulsants
  • Anti-Psychotics (neuroleptics)
  • Blood Pressure Medications
  • Insulin Supplementation in Type II Diabetics

Non-medical (i.e. other than drugs or surgery) approaches are available to help with many physical conditions. Examples include:

  • Migraine
  • Incontinence
  • Pain Syndromes
  • Parkinson's
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Various Disabilities
  • Recovery from Coma

Alternatives are also available for most mental health conditions. Examples include:

  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Autism
  • Asthma
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Migraines
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Tourette Syndrome
  • and many others...

Non-medical complementary techniques exist that should be used for rehabilitation and maintenance of function. Examples include:

  • Stroke
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Dementia
  • Alzheimer's Dementia
  • Cerebral Palsy

Non-medical approaches are available for the treatment of addictions, with results so good as to invite skepticism.
