  1. In the majority of situations no Rx interaction profiles are undertaken nor are reviews of the nutrient depletion caused by Rx. Also to be considered is a thorough review of side effects and risk of developing other conditions as a result of taking a drug.

    Our Health Forensics (c) model covers these concerns as part of the health coaching we have done for 30+ years.
