Hello Baria
We never recommend that you stop any medication. It would depend on your age, lifestyle and diet.

Reflexology does help to bring your body to a balance - that depends on the individual what that 'balance' is.

Reflexology also cannot harm - which is a good thing. So if you want give it a try - i would receomment that you go to a registered reflexologist.
You can find one on the Allied Health Council of SA website or this website
