Drugs and the Ederly

The elderly generally take more medications than younger people, and these medications can pose a real risk because their aging livers and kidneys are less efficient at eliminating drugs from their bloodstreams. As a result, the drugs' active ingredients reach higher levels and remain longer in their bodies. In some cases, the elderly take drugs which impair cognitive function with resulting confusion, memory loss, and other insidious symptoms that are often mistakenly passed off as natural consequences of aging. The fact is, however, that there is nothing natural about drugs. If aging adults want to take a natural approach to their health, they are invited to learn about chiropractic — the drugless healing profession.
