October is "Talk About Prescriptions" Month

NCPIE is a coalition of over 125 diverse organizations whose mission is to stimulate and improve communication of information on appropriate medicine use to consumers and healthcare professionals. NCPIE is the nation's leading authority for informing the general public and health care professionals on safe medicine use through better communication. Better medicine communication can lead to better health outcomes and improved quality of life.

The Healing Project would like to urge its community to educate itself about the benefits of pharmaceuticals and their proper uses. Further, natural substances, nurtriceuticals and supplements are often contain powerful chemicals that can have adverse effects and negative interactions with ethical drugs. Take the the time to read labels, consult with your doctor and speak to your pharmacist. Finally, THP would like to remind you to take antibiotics sparingly. The overuse of antibiotics has caused the rise of powerful resistant strains of bacteria that threaten uncontrollable epidemics of lethal diseases.
