"Many drugs -- both prescription and over-the-counter -- have the potential to affect nutritional status. A large number of drugs can alter food intake by decreasing appetite; by changing the sence of taste; or by causing dry mouth, nausea, or, in some cases, vomiting. In addition, drugs may interact adversely with the nutrients we take, ( vitamins, minerals, and food supplements ), reducing absorption, distribution, activation, or utilization, and possibly increasing nutrient excretion. For this reason, nutrient replacement can greatly benefit the patient who is taking drugs.

The following table is a listing of the vitamin and mineral deficiencies that may result when we take some of the most commonly used drugs, when we smoke, or when we consume alcoholic beverages on a regular basis. Substances that appear in parentheses indicate either a second name by which that drug may be known, or similar drugs in that drug class. In some cases, deficiencies result only when the drug is used daily or on a long-term basis. These cases have been noted in the table. Naturally, before increasing your nutrient intake, you should discuss the proper dosage with your health care provider.

However, larger doses of B-6 can be given to patients taking Sinemet, a combination of levodopa and carbidopa.

When considering Vitamin and Mineral supplementation, especially with new breakthru's in technology, knowledge of the effects of such supplementation is essential. New breakthru's in the absorption of these products, especially with the effectiveness of TEN products, requires professional assistance when you are currently taking drugs. It is normal for the medical professional, when prescribing drugs, to monitor their patient for effectiveness of the drug, and adjust the dossage accordingly.The effectiveness of drugs many times depends upon age and physical condition.

The key to health and well being can be found in maintaining proper nutritional foundation, as a deficiency in any of the mineral elements needed in human nutrition could account for most disease symptoms. The words and studies of Dr. Linus Pauling attest to this fact. The reality of our fast food society is that it is very difficult to follow a healthy diet today, and even more difficult for our body to digest, absorb, and metabolize the foods we eat into useable elements necessary for proper body function. The problem is compounded by the many fruits and vegetables that are are picked green before they absorb the proper nutrients and the fact that our soil is largely depleted of the essential elements, as documented by the 1936 Congressional report on the subject.

Since every disease takes time to develop ( the damage to our bodies ability to heal itself ), eliminating disease and enabling the body to heal itself also takes time. Pharmaceutical drugs created in a laboratory are designed to treat the symptom, in our belief, and more often than not, cause side effects that range from uncomfortable to severel.

When we understand that we are not getting the mineral nutrition our bodies need from the food we eat, we begin to understand the need for mineral supplementation. Our bodies are made of the same basic minerals that the earth is made of. Specific minerals facilitate specific functions in the organs and tissues. As with everything in life, balance is important. Inadequate or excessive supply of the essential nutrients required for proper body function can result in a body imbalance leading to a wide variety of disease. But, the importance of nutritional supplements is widely recognized in the scientific community and among nutritionally oriented physicians.
