Removing Obstacles to OPTIMAL Health

Many drugs are prescribed to cover symptoms caused by nutrient deficiencies.  And many nutrient deficiencies are caused by drugs. Without balanced nutrients we cannot be healthy or even get healthy even if the right medications are prescribed to us.

​Nutrients are to health what glues and mortar are to the foundation of the house.  You cannot have a house if you do not bind the bricks with mortar or 4x4s with glues and nails.  Similarly, health will be alluded with just carbohydrates, proteins and fats. 

While they are important, human cells cannot repair and renew themselves without vitamins and minerals, aka nutrients.  Overwhelming scientific evidence and published medical research documents the role that essential nutrients play in achieving and maintaining good health.

The same evidence links nutritional deficiencies as a contributing factor to chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and arthritis. Nutrient deficiencies are common: 90% of people are deficient, and 50% of those are already taking supplements!

Micronutrient deficiencies can be caused by commonly used prescription and over-the-counter medication. This is why I made it my life mission to help people maintain a nutrient balance by scrutinizing their medicine cabinet.

Whether you take one or 20 medications, you may optimize your health by:

  1. Assessing why you needed the medication in the first place?
    • Was it nutrient deficiencies? what caused those deficiencies? Was it a faulty gut?  Poor absorption? Infections? Heavy metals? Parasites? Mold?
  2. Assessing if your medicine regimen is further making you sick by inducing nutrient deficiencies

It has been estimated that about 30% of side effects from medications are related to drug-induced nutrient deficiencies.

Nutrient deficiencies caused by common drugs such as antacids and acid blockers (Pepcid, Zantac, Protonix, Prevacid, Mylanta, and Maalox) can lead to ailments such as anemia, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, hearing loss, heart and blood pressure irregularities, tooth decay, hair loss, brittle nails, weak immunity, poor wound healing, sexual dysfunction, birth defects, and even increased cancer risk. This is JUST ONE type of medications and their consequential symptoms caused by nutrient deficiencies!

Whether you take one or 20 medications, I can help!  I can assess if there are any dangers lurking in your medicine cabinet and help you achieve OPTIMAL health with a personalized approach!
