Description
If you find there are more pharmacies than grocery stores in your neighborhood, Houston, you have a major problem!  Medication has its rightful and respectful place in our neighborhoods, but so does food. While acute situations may call for the use of medication as the 1st line of defense, chronic conditions may not.  Lifestyle diseases can be managed though lifestyle interventions i.e. diet and exercise. In today's podcast episode we interview Texan based pharmacist, Dr. Ryce Echols, who addresses why medicine as "the easy way out" is not always the best option.
