Food-Drug Interactions

Hey everyone and happy Monday!

First of all, I’d like to thank all of you that commented, shared and “Liked” the launch of the new website! Not only were your comments thoughtful and useful, you gave me ideas for future blogs that speak to what you most want to have answers to. Thank you!

What came across loud and clear is that you want more videos! I love making them too, so you can be sure there are more to come. While I can’t do a video every week, and will continue to post written blogs, it is good to know you enjoy watching as much as reading.

Today, I have an important video for you, especially if you take any pharmaceutical or over the counter medications on a regular basis. You may know that most drugs can interact with other drugs and cause adverse and sometimes dangerous effects. Did you know, though, that some medications can interfere with foods as well? Often times, very healthy foods that one would imagine would be great for their health. They may not be though, if you take certain meds.

Once you’ve watched the video, I’d love to hear from you! Have you ever experienced a food-drug interaction? Has your pharmacist or doctor warned you to stop eating a healthy food because of the effect on your medication? Or were you able to find a way to continue to include your favorite food while being on your meds that didn’t disrupt it’s efficacy? Let me know in the comments below.

As always, it’s a privilege to be with you on Monday’s. I hope you have an excellent day and a fantastic week!
