We are creatures that seek comfort. This makes it easy to market a pill to fix a given symptom. We are taught this at an early age. Have a headache; take an aspirin. This approach does not take into account the reason for the headache. Your headache could be the result of too much sun, over exertion, dehydration, stress, hormone imbalance, elevated blood pressure, liver dysfunction, or constipation. So if you have the occasional headache, perhaps taking an aspirin is the solution. However, with continued discomfort, it would be better to solve the real problem.
You cannot effectively treat a condition without first understanding the cause. After all, there are a lot of prescription drugs designed to suppress symptoms but they do not bring the body back to a state of health. Once you discontinue the prescription the problem quite often returns or reappears as a variation of the original disease. My perspective is that the body was created with the ability to heal. The approach is to identify the road blocks to healing. Most individuals experience improvement which varies from small improvements to spontaneous remission.
A consultation starts when you complete a questionnaire. This includes your individual health goals, a list of your symptoms, prescription drugs, supplements and diet. As the consultation progress, I get some idea of the person with the health problems. It is important to understand the person with the health problem. The other approach is to understand the disease and either recommends drugs or supplements for that disease which is not always successful.
Consultation services provided by Lowry Drug Co., Inc. are designed to provide information and education to help you make informed decisions about your health. We focus on health education to create an environment conducive to good health. We will assess your overall situation and make suggestions consistent with your health goals. Recommendations are intended to support the individual to reach the optimal expression of their health. Suggestions may include dietary, vitamin and herbal supplements, homeopathic, prescriptions, and lifestyle counseling. Any prescription recommendations will be made to your physician for his/her review.
Evaluations, screenings and laboratory tests may be recommended and are for the sole purpose of identifying needs that may prevent you from optimizing your nutritional and health goals. The laboratory tests are not meant to diagnose or treat any disease. Diagnosing illness is the job of your physician and involves the classification of your symptoms into an illness category.
You are responsible for any decision you make regarding recommendations as well as any follow up care. You are responsible for obtaining professional medical assistance.
All information obtained during consultations and follow-ups are considered confidential and will not be shared with anyone without your express permission. You are encouraged to share any information concerning our services with your physician. Some recommendations may include services not provided by Lowry Drug Co. If a prescription change is recommend, your physician will be contacted in writing.
Consultations are available for any health related area including:
“Attention Deficit Disorder”
Prescription Medication Management
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement for Women and Men
Chronic Illness such as Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, or “Lymes” Disease
Initially you may need additional support to deal with the root cause of the problem but as the body restores itself to health, the need for other medications will be less likely. The Health and Wellness questionnaire will help pinpoint the core of the problem and you will be on the road to better health. You can choose to treat the symptoms forever or the cause for a while.
