How To Keep Your Medicine From Stealing the Life Out
of You by Suzy Cohen, RPh (Registered Pharmacist)
can’t say enough about this book and have tried to
limit what we say here.
Here is a brief overview.
Cohen, R. Ph., is a licensed pharmacist with nearly 20
years of clinical experience. Suzy Cohen is a member
of the Institute of Functional Medicine, The
Association of Natural Medicine Pharmacists and The
American Pharmacists Association.
is this book about:
millions of people worldwide are taking medications,
this book talks about how this often means they are
being robbed of essential nutrients.
These drugs can reduce your body's stores of
vital life-sustaining nutrients.
The drug robs the body (mugs it) of these
Suzy Cohen has termed the nutrient depletion, the Drug
a drug robs your body of a nutrient you will
experience another effect of that drug, something you
call a side effect. You probably didn't know that
drugs could do that, but I bet you have experienced
the drug mugging effect first hand.
example is with antibiotics...they are drug muggers
for your normal intestinal flora and when they rob
your gut of these 'friendly bacteria' you probably get
diarrhea, cramps and nausea.
example is with statin cholesterol drugs, like Zocor,
Mevacor, Lipitor, Crestor, etc....when these
medications mug your body of Coenzyme Q10, you get
side effects like muscle aches, fatigue and cardiac
problems in the long haul. That's because Co Q10 is
found in your muscles (your heart is a muscle isn't
it?) and so when these drugs mug Co Q10, your entire
cardiovascular system and brain pay the price. Dozens
of popular medications mug CoQ10, not just cholesterol
who take hormonal replacement drugs or birth control
pills could be robbed of B vitamins (among other
important nutrients) and this causes all sorts of
problems including low thyroid, weight gain and
list goes on and on.
Knowing the information in the book, is
very crucial to your health and well-being and it
could save your life.
simple way to replenish nutrients is to eat a balanced
diet that includes foods rich in vitamins and
minerals, including leafy green vegetables, citrus
fruits, grains, nuts, seeds and...if you like meat,
grass-fed, hormone free meats. But sometimes eating
doesn't do enough to offset the drug mugging effect,

Supplement Your Prescription: What Your Doctor Doesn't Know about Nutrition
by Hyla Cass, M.D.
Similar to what Suzy Cohen's book, the subject is also discussed by a medical doctor.
Prescription drugs can rob you of the very vitamins and minerals your body needs to overcome your current health condition. Whether you suffer from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic heartburn (GERD), arthritis, diabetes, or depression, the prescription drugs you are taking can actually make your condition worse!
Why didn't your doctor warn you about this possible side effect?
Most office visits are short, and time is limited. And the truth is, many doctors have very little knowledge about nutrition and how it affects your overall health and well-being. As a result, your doctor is unlikely to tell you how to supplement your prescription.
Dr. Cass offers essential information to complement your doctor's advice. This straightforward, easy-to-use guide explains:
* How drugs interfere with your body's ability to absorb and use vital nutrients.
* What nutrient depletions and side effects you can expect with the most frequently prescribed drugs.
* Which nutritional supplements and foods can safeguard against nutrient depletion and its health consequences.
* How specific diet changes and nutritional supplements can help you take control of your condition.
* Why it's important to support your plan with a balanced diet, exercise, and other self-care basics.
* Where to go to find more information to become your own health advocate. Your medications should help, not hurt.
With "Supplement Your Prescription," Dr. Cass shows you the way to optimal health.
