This book is easy to read and very informative and helpful about common conditions for which most of us take medication. Really does tell you things your doctor doesn't know so you can make better choices for treating illnesses.

The Author, Dr. Hyla Cass, has focused most of her attention on main stream prescription drugs and the nutrients they destroy - and how to replace these nutrients. While Dr Cass doesn't think much about taking supplements first - to avoid medications that mainly treat only symptoms - the readers should consider such possibilities. It also may be that Dr. Cass's other books explore this area. I haven't read any of her other books.

Her recommending the American DASH Diet (except for the high volume of breads and grains that DASH recommends), Dr. Cass also mentions the value of some other popular diets and exercise. She is good to mention these thiings - really good!

I especially like it that this book is organized so that the reader need only read the first two easy reading chapters and then skip the chapters that follow - except the ones that describe the medical conditions and drugs that interest the reader most. For example, if your not even at risk from diabetes, readers can skip that chapter and just go to the chapters that focus on disease they are being treated for. But the whole book is a good read. It is only 184 pages - including the index. It is to the point. No long narratives and no boring patient testimonials.

One thing, however, the reader should keep in mind that much of the suggested dietary remedies have not had a lot of scientific double blind testing. That's one reason most doctors ignore these types of remedies. The trouble is that there is no profit motive to inspire such research - not to prevent disease or to complement prescription medicine. Financial profit is the Motor driving not only the medical industry but almost all industry.

This book was recommended to me by my mother, who researches everything thoroughly. I take various medications for various conditions and had no idea what other effects they were having on me until I read this book. What an eye-opener! Anyone who has been prescribed medications should review the information Dr. Cass has given. It will be a smoother ride to the management of and recovery from their illnesses.

Dr. Cass lists numerous drugs and tells us specifically what nutrients they affect.

Diabetics on metformin should be aware B12 deficiency can be a problem. PPIs also mess with B12 absorption and can cause real problems. There are many other drugs & supplements listed as well.

If you are taking ANY drug, get this book and read it.

I love this book. She makes recommendations of what nutrients are depleted from taking certain medications
My preference is always natural where possible. Very easy to understand, I've bought this book 2 times and kindle version to share the knowledge. She explains how one medication gives you side effects that many doctors will just write you another script.. She'll recommend supplements dosages, pros/cons, etc... Worth the money!

This was very informative. The supplemental suggestions explained the reason for so many of the Rx side effects. For example, warning in typical hand-out mentions prolonged use of meds like Nexium and Prilosec can lead to bone fractures. Well, the reason for that is that low or no stomach acid inhibits the absorption of calcium and magnesium along with B-12 from food sources resulting in possible deficiencies. There's many other problems with PPI's, but I digress. If someone has no choice but to take them, they must supplement with Ca and Mg citrate as well as B12 sublingual for best absorption. I wish even more about the medications and side effects was explained as well as withdrawal symptoms that doctors deny or are unaware of, but maybe that's for another book.

I have seen Dr. Cass give presentations in connection with Safe Harbor in Los Angeles. I have bought other books of hers as well as this one. She is a great presenter and has a wealth of knowledge which is really reflected in this book as well as her others. It is absolutely well worth buying, as are all of her works. I've talked with her personally and she has been quite, helpful and professional. I was a bit surprised though about something. While in Santa Monica attending a lecture by Dr. Dr. Hans Gruenn at the public library she came into the back of the room, sat down, and when there was a space in the conversation she introduced herself, spoke briefly about a book she just finished and left. I believe it was this book. I didn't think it was appropriate to use his lecture to promote her book unless she had prior approval and he introduced her to the audience from the podium.

This book is good as a reference book for those who research the meds ordered for them. It tells what those meds do for you and what minerals and vitamins should be taken with those meds to enhance the value of them.
