Pharmaceuticals deplete the body of nutrients

The True Vitamin Robbers: Pharmaceuticals deplete the body of nutrients

Medications known to play a role in nutrient depletion are among the most frequently prescribed medications. Antibiotics, anti-depressants, steroidal and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, cardiovascular drugs including blood pressure medications, cholesterol-lowering drugs, anti-diabetic drugs, estrogen, and tranquilizers strip valuable vitamins, minerals and friendly bacteria from the body. When any of these drugs are combined the risk of developing deficiencies increases exponentially.

The average senior receives 25 prescriptions annually - a 100 percent jump in just four years! As over-medication of seniors grows there are greater health threats. The wide variety of drug intake creates conflicting side effects which doctors treat with other types of drugs creating even more side effects. Such drug combinations rob patients of the very nutrients they need most when fighting an illness.

I am 63 and post=menopausal but I started getting hot flashes again. I use to take estrogen several yrs ago I also went on a low Carb diet ant at a jar of peanut butter every other day for protein also nuts. Thats about all I ate except salad and jello & chicken. My hand joins are hurting so bad. I was wondering if all this above did this to my hands. Should I start taking estrogen again. I have had a hysterectomy when I was 50. Is the hot flashes a symptom of something else Worried
