Nutrient Depletion Caused By Prescription Drugs

Nutrient Depletion Caused By Drugs You Take:

nutrient depletion causedWhen taking pharmaceutical drugs we most often worry about the numerous & dangerous side effects but we also need to know the nutrient depletion caused on by these drugs.  Yet any consideration of side effects or nutrient depletion is secondary to a pharmaceutical drugs main purpose.

In other words they are not made to be safe, they are made to be effective at relieving symptoms no matter the cost to our health.  After interviewing Dr. Michael, one of only 600 neurological chiropractors in the world, my fears were confirmed; most medical Dr.s know little about the biology of the body and how nutrients are imperative to our health.

Frightening to think that we are trusting drugs to regain the health that nutrition is supposed to provide & these drugs are depleting our bodies of even more vital nutrients that sustain life.  It is a vicious circle but one we can put to an end with a little education.

Nutrient Depletion Due To Medications Is Criminal Negligence

In my opinion to prescribe a drug which depletes the body of essential nutrients borders on criminally negligent.  Unfortunately this is the state of modern drug therapy.  I am being very bold in stating this but consider listening closely to the next drug advertisement and think about it…

If that drug were a supplement, let’s take Prodovite (a whole food, nutrient dense gluten free supplement) for example and the first part of the commercial was all about the benefits, then the last 20 seconds were the warnings that it may cause bleeding from the eyes, headaches, diarrhea, suicidal thoughts, high blood pressure & drowsiness…would you even for a second consider taking this supplement?  Let alone ask your Doctor about it??

HECK NO, you would turn the manufacturer in and warn everyone NEVER to take it.  So why are we asking our doctors about drugs that actually do cause these dangerous side effects as well as further nutrient depletion, causing more health problems?

Our doctors are not going to advise us to take any supplements to prevent further nutrient depletion so it falls on each one of us to make sure we are protected & replenishing needed vitamins and minerals.

Nutrient Depletion Caused By Drugs: Where Education Beats Medication

As a independent nutritional consultant and holistic wellness advocate, I would like to share with you what certain prescription drugs do to our bodies, how they deplete VIABLE NUTRIENTS our bodies need in order to HEAL.  For many years my husband took prescription drugs and had no idea they were nutrient depleting drugs that were causing more degeneration and disease in his body.  Is the medication you are taking, killing you?

Antacids, such as: Pepcid, Tagamet and Zantac, deplete our bodies of Vit. B12, D, Folic Acid, Calcium, Iron and Zinc.
Prevacid and Prilosec depletes our body of Vit. B12.

Antibiotics, such as: General Aminoglycosides (gentomycin, neomycin, streptomycin), Cephalosporins, Penicillins, depletes our bodies of B Vitamins, Vit. K, and Friendly Beneficial Intenstinal Bacteria.

Tetracyclines, depletes our bodies of Calcium, Zinc, Magnesium, Iron, and Vit. B6.

Anti Diabetics, such as: Micronase and Tolinase, depletes our bodies of Co-Enzyme Q10. Glucophage, Vitamin B12, and Folic Acid.

Anti-Depressants, such as: Adapin, Aventyl, Elavil, Tofranil, Pamelor, Sinequan, Norpramin, depletes our bodies of Vit. B12, Co-Enzyme Q10.

Anti-Inflammatories, such as: Aspirin and Salicylates, depletes our bodies of Vit. C, Folic Acid, Iron and Potassium.

Advil, Aleve, Anaprox, Dolobid, Feldene, Lodine, Motrin, Naprosyn, Orudis, and Relafen, depletes our body of Folic Acid. Betamethasone, Cortisone, Dexamethasone, Hydrocortisone, Methylprednisolone, and Prednisone, depletes our bodies of Vit.C & D, Folic Acid, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Selenium, and Zinc.

Corticosteroids: Prednisone, Dexamethasone, Triamcinolone,
Betamethasone, Beclomethasone, Flunisolide, Fluticasone deplete the body of Calcium, Folic Acid,Magnesium, Potassium, Selenium, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc

Cardiovascular Drugs, such as: Apresoline, depletes our bodies of Vit. B6 and Co-Enzyme Q10. Catapres and Aldomet, depletes our bodies of Co-Enzyme Q10. Corgard, Inderal, Lopressor, Betapace, Tenormin, Sectral and Blocadren depletes our bodies of Co-Enzyme Q10 and Melatonin.

Cholesterol Lowering Agents (Statins), such as: Lescol, Lipitor, Mavacor, Zocor, Pravachol and Crestor depletes our bodies of Co-Enzyme Q-10. Colestid, and Quetran depletes our bodies of, Vit. A, B12, D, E, K, Beta Carotene, Folic Acid, and Iron.

Your body is a MIRACLE machine made to be fueled by these nutrients.  Every cell depends on nutrition for life & needs super-nutrition to perform its miracles and rebuild itself.  These drugs only treat symptoms and mask the cause.  Super saturated nutrition can and will prevent and/or repair many of the diseases we currently face.  My husband has been in remission for 5 years, using natural methods, no nutrient depleting meds.  He lives free of the limitations of Sarcoidosis and is in better health than he was in 2004 when he was first diagnosed.

nutrient depletionIt is important to supplement your diet with concentrated nutrition that is formulated with fulvic acid (not folic acid).  The fulvic acid chellates every vitamin and mineral so your body can then assimilate and use them.  Without this process the supplements are useless and nutrient depletion will continue.

Anti-depressants and Lipitor were the most prescribed drugs last year and after reading about how they cause nutrient depletion I would like to know why Dr.s don’t recommend that people supplement to prevent further bodily damage and disease.

A quote comes to mind, from world renowned chemist and Nobel prize winner Linus Pauling

“Every ailment, every sickness and every disease can be traced back to An organic trace mineral deficiency.

Are your cells starving? As I always say “Wellness is the connection of paths between knowledge and action.”   I hope we all learn that our bodies were never meant to survive on synthetic drugs, they were and always have thrived on vital nutrients found in nature.
