A Pill For This and A Pill For That, But Dr. Peale said "The Best and Most Efficient Pharmacy is Within Your Own System!"

Gynecology, like life and the rest of medicine has long been fairly secular. We rely on facts and figures, and tend to feel like factors we cannot explain, are just "next on the scientific inquiry to do list." Gynos do believe in the less tangible like positive thinking and reduction of stress, and the general improvement of our own ability to fight disease with the right nutrition, exercise and immune system improvements. Dr. Robert C. Peale was quoted as saying "The Best and Most Efficient Pharmacy is Within Your Own System!" Perhaps this quote can be interpreted on several levels, the "first do no harm" may be what he meant, as in don't smoke or take up health behaviors you know are harmful. Or perhaps he meant forces we cannot ever quantify. I take that middle road; for some
of us the 'internal pharmacy' has some significant chinks in the armor due to genetics, aging or disease. And for that, the best pharmacy may indeed be in a pill for this or that.
