Nearly 70 percent of adults take medications. Despite their benefits, however, you may be surprised to learn that they may, also, be depleting the body of much-needed nutrients. In fact, the continued depletion may make the condition worse, interfering with immunity, digestion, energy levels, brain function, blood sugar and heart health. During a typical surgery visit with one's doctor, there is seldom time to cover this essential information. Some examples of the medications that impact nutritional health and overall wellness are: * Antidepressants: can cause anxiety, poor sleep and sexual dysfunction. * Cholesterol-lowering drugs: can cause fatigue, bodyaches, and increased risk for heart disease. * Acid reflux and heartburn drugs: contribute to decreased levels of calcium, thereby increasing the likelihood of bone fractures. * Diabetes drugs: can lead to deficiencies in vitamin B12, in turn increasing the risk for cardiovascular disease. * Arthritis drugs: strip away folic acid and vitamin D, often resulting in muscle pains and an increased risk for bone fractures. Readers will be given safe, natural ways to restore healthy levels of the necessary nutrients while taking prescription medication.
