As the population increases, there is a greater demand for prescription drugs of all categories.

Patient vigilance is necessary to eliminate these errors that could result in serious or fatal consequences. In The Slim Book of Health Pearls, authors Sheldon Cohen and Megan Godwin offer advice on how to promote long-term health through the benefits of exercise as an alternative or adjunct to medication. They discuss how many different ailments can benefit from the simple act of exercise, especially with a well-designed program completed with physician supervision. Cohen and Godwin list the many symptoms and illnesses that benefit from exercise, detailing the research and the reasons why these benefits occur. With examples included, The Slim Book of Health Pearls discusses how following a physician-designed exercise regimen on a regular basis may obviate the need for medication and will also provide lifelong benefits.
