My response to this question is based upon my personal experience with several of my clients with Hypothyroid,Type 2 Diabetes, and/or Depression conditions. This group of clients were all female in their early fifties to mid sixties. Over the course of several sessions in which I combined the therapies of Lymphatic Drainage and Craniosacral these woman experienced an improvement in their overall health resulting in their doctors decreasing the dosages of their medications treating these conditions. In my foundation training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy we were taught to recommend to our clients who are on on medications under the care of physician that they ask their physician to be actively assessing their medications on a regular basis while coming for therapy. Why? Because as the health of the individual increases their need for medication decreases and so needs to be actively regulated by their physician to avoid being overmedicated. My own personal experience as described above really hit home to me the validity of this recommendation.
