    The other day a non-adherent patient with high blood pressure and chronic kidney disease stage 4, with regret, asked me what interventions I suggested to avoid the kidney dialysis machine. The patient wasn't taking any of her prescribed medications and the patient's blood pressure was quite elevated.
    My advice: "Consider the following adage. The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now."
    Reflecting for a moment, the patient shook her head in agreement. She replied: "I agree. Let's do this!"
