”The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” — Thomas Edison
Over a lovely Italian lunch with our even lovelier wives before a recent Galveston Symphony, my friend Heber Taylor suggested writing an article about what I keep in my medicine cabinet. Heber was the editor of The Daily News who invited me to start writing this column a few years ago and has a keen nose for a good story. Heber’s suggestion made sense as I have long researched and practiced Integrative Medicine and sought to determine the proper role of dietary supplements and botanicals in promoting health and treating disease. We agreed that sharing my medicine cabinet contents might be helpful to readers.
