De-Prescribing Pharmacy Series 2019 with Fleetwood

10 hours Pharmacy CE – approved by OBNM and AANP

Following in the same pattern as last year’s “Diseases of the Drugs” series, we’ll look at the same Top 100 Drugs in Sales and Top 100 Drugs in Volume, the same diseases for which these drugs are used, but now with an eye to treating those disease states (rather, the people who happen to be experiencing dis-ease) from a vitalistic, naturopathic standpoint. Once the patient is SO STINKIN’ healthy, it becomes clear— through both Subjective and Objective measures—that the patient is over-medicated! This series is designed to help the practitioner know how to safely remove the drugs in question.
