This review is from: Drug Muggers: Which Medications Are Robbing Your Body of Essential Nutrients--and Natural Ways to Restore Them (Paperback)
This is a very good book which I will refer to frequently. It covers a large amount of synthetic drugs and their possible interactions with supplements and nutrients in your system. Certain synthetic drugs will deplete these nutrients in the body, so sometimes you'll need to add more than the usual dosage.

I personally like the chapters on the Vitamins and trace minerals. The Selenium chapter is a good read although I would have added to this chapter that Selenium is important for conversion of T4 to T3. These are thyroid hormones needed for the proper functioning of your thyroid gland. All in all, it's a good purchase and I'd buy one for your parents or anyone else who needs an up to date look at drugs and vitamins.

Kiwi, I bought this book, also. Excellent for referencing. I also enjoy her website.
By the way, sounds like you live in NZ. Love that awesome country. My son has been living in Wellington for almost six years and works for WCC. He has decided to move back to the states. He's sad, but has his residency so he may move back at some point. He had planned on living in NZ a year. His stepdad and I came down three times. We got hooked on that incredible country. Where do you live?
The earthquake was horrible and Justin said that they felt it in his workplace.

Take care and best wishes. (when I see the word 'Kiwi', I just have to check it out!)

Hi Bookgirl...lovely to hear from you...
I am in New Mexico, but have several friends in NZ. The earthquake was really terrible and I'm still lighting candles everyday for the safe recovery of those who were harmed. NZ is a beautiful country and I love the people there.....I'm sure your son will miss them terribly.
She did a good job on this book and I am going to recommend it everyone.
Looking forward to Spring in the States !!!
Cheers,
Kiwi

Thanks for responding. You had me convinced you were a Kiwi, except for the spelling. i.e. flavor/flavour.

I love N.M. Ny son went there with his dad when he came home last Sept. (Santa Fe). When he moves back next month, he will be looking for a job (he's been in journalism) and going to Boston, NM and Texas (Austin) who knows? But he hasnt lived here in OK here since college. Can't blame him. (Tulsa is a family town)

Anyway, thanks again and best wishes in the land of enchantment!

Thanks a lot, Kiwi. The last thing I needed this Sunday morning was yet another book to read. Regardless, I absolutely must buy this book--base on your book review--for my own knowledge if or nothing else. Fortunate 70 year old without need for medication other than a low dose beta blocker and amour thyroid. I'm am totally onboard with vitamins and trace minerals, esp magnesium and I use lots of sea salt on everything (don't believe hypertension is cause by too much salt but rather by a lack of base nutrients that are systematically leeched out of our food supply). Some months back I even stopped taking Mobic (NSAID--pain med) because of the increased risks for heart disease and kidney damage. I own my pain and will live with it. I believe my own adage I give my patients: "less is best" and "no-drug is the best medicine." Hillbilly

I'd say your being divinely guided Hillbilly....those of us who believe in self treating and natural products usually are.... We entered a new paradigm and in doing that we've stepped away from all the synthetic drugs which do nothing more than put us in a downward spiral. Once we are sure of our footing we can go on to teach others and that's extremely beneficial for all.
Good heath and happiness to you my friend !

Does this book contain any info on Cimzia or is Cimzia too new of a drug from when this book was published? Thanks for any input.

I don't see this drug listed in the index. Are you using it for inflammation?

R2D2 says:
Yes my son is using it for his Crohns to control inflammatiin. It's a similar injectable to Humira and I believe it is in the same classification as Humira. The non brand name of it is certolizumab pegol but the brand name is Cimzia. Thanks you for replying.
