In a past teleconference, Hyla Cass, MD discussed her latest book about nutrient deficiency.
Supplement Your Prescription: Many Prescription Drugs Are Nutrient Robbers!
More than 50% of all Americans take at least one prescription drug, and 20% take three or more. That means 135 million Americans are currently on one or more medications such as Prevacid, Lipitor, Zoloft, or Ibuprofen, to help manage their chronic diseases. But there’s one side effect of these drugs that’s not being addressed: nutrient deficiency. In fact, the side effects will often make the original condition worse.
Dr. Hyla Cass, addresses this new epidemic in her latest book SUPPLEMENT YOUR PRESCRIPTION: What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know About Nutrition, including the following topics:
- How drugs interfere with the body’s ability to absorb, produce, and preserve vital nutrients.
- What nutrient depletions and side effects you can expect with the most popular prescriptions.
- Which nutritional supplements and foods can safeguard against nutrient depletion and its health consequences
