This seminar educates healthcare professionals on the use of commonly prescribed medications and compares the action and efficacy of these drugs to specific nutritional supplements in regards to the mechanism of action, adverse side effects, clinical efficacy, and contra-indications. Many practitioners are aware that nutrition, exercise, and targeted supplementation interventions may, in some cases, reduce or eliminate a client’s requirement for certain medications, or act as complementary agents to enhance the management of the client outcomes. This program provides an evidence-based review of this subject comparing drugs and supplements that are effective agents in the management of common health conditions.  DC’s and other health practitioners routinely ask clients about their present use of prescription and over-the-counter medications during the intake exam and thus, clients expect them to know how drugs influence the physiology of the\
