Summary

If you're either taking, or thinking of taking, vitamins or herbs along with your prescription and non-prescription medications, then you and your family must have this book! Millions of people, just like you, use both without knowing that some combinations are beneficial while some can be downright dangerous. Based on the information fromHealthnotes Onlinedatabase,theA-Z Guide to Drug-Herb-Vitamin Interactionsis written by a highly respected team of natural medicine experts --medical doctors, naturopathic physicians, and pharmacists-who have created a natural health information resource that is both comprehensive and user-friendly. TheA-Z Guide to Drug-Herb-Vitamin Interactionshelps you learn which drugs can deplete your body's essential nutrients; which supplements can help your prescriptions work better, or reduce drug side effects; and which herbs and drugs should never be taken together. Did you know that: ·Along with bad bacteria, antibiotics kill good bacteria that need to be replenished? ·Birth control pills deplete the body's stores of folic acid? ·Asian ginseng may help your flu vaccine work better? ·Ginkgo can help reduce Prozac-induced sexual dysfunction? ·Vitamin K can destroy the drug action of Warfarin®? "TheA-Z Guide to Drug-Herb-Vitamin Interactionsis presented in a very clear and concise manner--making it accessible to both health professionals and consumers. It is an indispensable resource for people who take medications, as well as those who prescribe or dispense them--and it's especially useful for anyone concerned about nutrition and herbal therapies. It will be an essential resource on my bookshelf."--Joe Graden, MS, AuthorThe Peoples' Pharmacy "This comprehensive review of drug-nutrient interactions--by far the most exhaustive of its kind--is an invaluable tool for all consumers and professionals, integrating the worlds of conventional and alternative medicine."--Julian Whitaker, MD, Editor, Health & Healingnewsletter "The use of this excellent book can do so much to improve a person's general health and knowledge.
