HASH(0x9d211abc) out of 5 stars Excellent- a masterpiece March 12 2002
By Ben Paleo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has truly vastly surpassed my expectations. It has several indexes- one comprehensive index, one for drugs, one for nutrients and the drugs that affect them, monographs on all the nutrients, and then the piece de resistance, the abstracts of the medical literature to back it all up.
Written by a team of pharmacists, it is very even handed and lists the negative literature as well as the positive. Thus one can ascertain which nutrients are affected by which drugs, and vice versa and quickly review some of the medical literature to make up one's own mind. I've found it helpful.
Some good examples are that omeprazole reduces B12 absorption around 70%, that simvastatin reduces Q10 production significantly, HRT reduces B vitamins, anticonvulsants reduce vit D folate and calcium.
Unfortunately it doesn't deal with anesthetic gases- N2O depletes B12 and halothane causes oxidative stress on the liver.
I still have more to learn about this book, but it is one of my best purchases.

HASH(0x9cc3751c) out of 5 stars Outstanding resource Jan. 29 2010
By Freedom of health choices advocate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a must for anyone coaching or advising any one on medications. Too bad it is out of print as I bought 2 copies for my offices in 2007 for $29.99 and they are now only available for $299! I don't let my copies out of my sight! I contacted the publisher for a third edition and as of 2008 no takers. We need to get this updated and back in print.(This is the 2nd edition).

HASH(0x9cc37a80) out of 5 stars What your MD doesn't know is killing you! Jan. 30 2007
By Thomas L. Taliaferro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book needs to be in every medical office and pharmacy nation wide. Instead of killing over 200,000 Americans every year, this book may save millions by just letting them know how drugs deplete our bodies of essential nutrients.

This is an integral part of my practice and I wish I had this years ago.

This allows me to make more informed recommendations for glyconutrients, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, etc.

If you or a loved one is taking one or more medications, then this book must reside in a handy location. Find out which nutrients your medications deplete from your system. Exhausted and dragging when you're on an antibiotic? Find out why. Then you can supplement your body with the appropriate nutrients, vitamins, minerals, etc. Feel like your normal self again. Get the benefits of your meds and know what you need to do to replace what those meds take away from you. An absolute must if you're in the health and nutrition distribution business, as well!
