Suzie Cohen says,
"As a pharmacist for 22 years and a newspaper columnist with 20 million readers each week, I have devoted my life to helping you feel better. I've written several books which are powerful resources to help you regain vibrant health.
Prescription drugs have an intended effect on the body but they may be reducing vital nutrients in your cells causing all sorts of annoying and dangerous side effects.
For example, cholesterol-lowering statin drugs mug you of Coenzyme Q10, which powers your heart beat and keeps you from becoming weak, or developing leg cramps. Estrogen-containing drugs mug you of certain nutrients, leaving you hypothyroid, depressed and tired. Diabetic medications mug a certain B vitamin that protects you from stroke & heart attack.
There are hundreds of medications included as well as drug-food interactions (like grapefruit, oatmeal and cheese interactions that could harm you)… AND as a BONUS, this book includes a special chapter to teach you how to buy the highest quality supplements you can afford.
Protect yourself from side effects and potentially catastrophic health consequences with this amazing one-of-a-kind resource. Learn about absurdly inexpensive vitamins and minerals that can help you feel better and solve your problems once and for all. "
Suzie Cohen also writes about Biotin (Vitamin B7) and how it ' makes you more beautiful. If you have britlle nails or slow-growing, dull hair, there's a good chance you're deficient'. She goes on to say that some biotin can be made in the intestinal tract that is healthy and flourishing. Antibiotics are 'drug muggers' for both probiotics and biotin. What's in her closet to counteract this concern? at the top of her list she recommends Dr Ohhira's Probiotics 12 PLUS.
The book has 320 pages and is written in the English language.
