Gerald Roliz — author of The Pharmaceutical Myth — pulls back the curtain on the pharmaceutical sales industry, revealing how he was trained to use fear, pressure, and gifts to “buy out” doctors who would prescribe the medications he represented. Plus, what made him walk away from it all to help people heal naturally.
