I regularly prescribe medications, both as maintenance and in conjunction with other treatments, until those medications can be reduced or eliminated. Overall, the goal of treatment in my practice, in consonance with homeopathic principles, is the restoration of health, which is incompatible with long term medication treatment in most cases. Therefore, for those looking for long term medication management, and who are uninterested in avoiding, reducing, or eliminating their medications, I respectfully suggest that they make an appointment with a different physician. The long term disease management approach to treatment, while widely accepted in our culture, is appropriate for certain conditions, but I do not believe it yields the best results in most types of health problems.
