What the Drug Companies Won't Tell You and Your Doctor Doesn't Know

The Alternative Treatments That May Change Your Life--and the Prescriptions That Could Harm You

About The Book

Reimagining how we treat illnesses, Dr. Michael T. Murray reveals information about pharmaceutical treatments that will change the way you think of over-the-counter and prescription drugs.

Adverse reactions to over-the-counter and prescription drugs are currently estimated to kill more than 100,000 Americans a year, making it the fourth leading cause of death in the United States behind cancer, heart disease, and stroke.

Drawing on more than twenty years of scientific research, Dr. Michael T. Murray reveals how the pharmaceutical treatments of the most common diseases that plague our society are often ineffective and result in serious, widespread side effects—and then explains how natural treatments can help us avoid them.

What the Drug Companies Won’t Tell You and Your Doctor Doesn’t Know makes clear that we must radically reevaluate the way that we take care of ourselves, and Dr. Murray provides clear guidance on the steps necessary to help you lead a fitter, happier, and healthier life.
