Drug Chronotherapy

Aloha Everyone,

Drug Chronotherapy is tunes to body's rhythm regarding when to take your daily medications to get maximum effect with the lowest risk of unpleasant side effects.

Michael Smolensky, adjunct professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Texas, Austin, states, "The body doesn’t respond to medications in the same way at different times of the day."  "Some drugs are not as effective or as well tolerated if they're taken at the wrong biological time.  It's not the they're not effective at all, but they're certainly much less effective."

Successful treatment of diseases may depend on the time of day or month that a medicine is taken or surgery performed. Asthma and arthritis pain are examples of conditions now being treated by the clock or calendar.

CAUTION:  Please consult your doctors or pharmacist before changing the timing of your drugs.

Namaste -- Cathi
