Most physicians don’t realize that “fewer than half of the patients prescribed some of the most expensive drugs actually derived any benefit from them,” according to GlaxoSmithKline Worldwide Vice President of Genetics Allen Roses.

To work, a medication has to be properly metabolized, absorbed and utilized. How you will respond to a medication is as unique as your fingerprints. Only a test that tests how your genetics affects a medicine, called pharmacogenetics (PGx for short), can forecast how you will be affected by hundreds of medications.

Fortunately, today there is a way you can find out if you are at risk from your medications. This is done by getting a simple pharmacogenomics test (PGx) through a cheek swab. Much of the information in this piece is taken from the website We have nothing to gain financially from this recommendation.

What I do want you to know is that medications can be vital in many circumstances and may not be able to be avoided. So, if you have to rely on medications, at least be safe.

I also know that PEMFs do not carry any of the genetic risks of medications, and, based on my experience as an MD, are much safer, less potentially toxic and can be as or more effective. In addition, PEMFs can frequently actually help to heal or strengthen the tissues that can cause the health problems.
