Review “This comprehensive review of drug-nutrient interactions—by far the most exhaustive of its kind—is an invaluable tool for consumers and professionals, integrating the worlds of conventional and alternative medicine.”—Julian Whitaker, M.D., editor of Health & Healing newsletter “An essential resource.”—Joe Graedon, M.S., author of The People’s Pharmacy About the Author Steve Austin, N.D., is a licensed naturopathic physician and Professor of Nutrition at National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon.Alan R.

Part 1 Interactions by Drug Some interactions may increase the need for the herb, other interactions may be negative and indicate the herb should not be taken without first speaking with your physician or pharmacist. Others may require further explanation. An asterisk (*) next to an item in the summary indicates that the interaction is supported only by weak, fragmentary, and/or contradictory scientific evidence. Refer to the individual drug entry for specific details about an interaction. The following list only includes the generic or class name of a medicine—to find a specific brand name, use the index. Accuretic Contains the following ingredients: Hydrochlorothiazide (page 000) Quinapril (page 000) Acebutolol Common names: Sectral Combination drug: Secradex Acebutolol is used to treat high blood pressure and certain forms of heart arrhythmia, and is in a family of drugs known as beta-adrenergic blockers (page 000). Summary of Interactions for Acebutolol In some cases, an herb or supplement may appear in more than one category, which may seem contradictory. For clarification, read the full article for details about the summarized interactions. Avoid: Reduced drug absorption bioavailabilityFood Avoid: Adverse interactionHigh-potassium foods* Pleurisy root* Potassium supplements* Depletion or interferenceNone known Side effect reduction/preventionNone known Supportive interactionNone known Interactions with Dietary Supplements Potassium Some beta-adrenergic blockers (called “nonselective” beta blockers) decrease the uptake of potassium from the blood into the cells, leading to excess potassium in the blood, a potentially dangerous condition known as hyperkalemia. People taking beta-blockers should therefore avoid taking potassium supplements, or eating large quantities of fruit (e.g., bananas), unless directed to do so by their doctor. Interactions with Herbs Pleurisy root As pleurisy root and other plants in the Aesclepius genus contain cardiac glycosides, it is best to avoid use of pleurisy root with heart medications such as beta-blockers. Interaction with Foods and Other Compounds Taking acebutolol with food slows the rate of absorption and reduces the maximum blood levels of the drug, though overall absorption is not affected. However, the blood level of an active breakdown product of acebutolol is reduced. Though the activity of acebutolol is affected by food, people taking the drug on a daily basis are not likely to experience a reduction in the effectiveness of the drug if it is taken with a meal. Acetaminophen Common names: 222 AF, Abenol, Acetab, Acet, Alisphene Forte, Alvedon, Anadin Paracetamol, APAP, Apo-Acetaminophen, Artritol, Atasol, Boots Children’s Pain Relief Syrup, Boots Cold Relief Hot Blackcurrant, Boots Cold Relief Hot Lemon, Boots Infant Pain Relief, Calpol 6 Plus, Calpol Infant, Calpol Pediatric, Calpol, Cephanol, Children’s Acetaminophen, Children’s Feverhalt, Cupanol Over 6, Cupanol Under 6, Disprol, Dom-Acetaminophen, Fanalgic, Fennings Children’s Cooling Powders, Hill’s Balsam Flu Strength Hot Lemon Powders, Infadrops, Lem-Plus Powders, Medinol, Novogesic, Pain Aid Free, Paldesic, Panaleve 6+, Panaleve Junior, Pandol, Panodol Baby and Infant, Paracetamol, Paracets, Paraclear, Paramin, Pediatrix, PMS Acetaminophen, Resolve, Robigesic Elixir, Rounox, Salzone, Tantaphen, Tempra, Tixymol, Tramil 500, Trianon, Tylenol, WestCan Extra Strength Acetaminophen, WestCan Regular Strength Acetaminophen Combination drugs: Alka-Seltzer Plus, Co-Proxamol, Coalgesic, Darvocet N, Distalgesic, Endocet, Excedrin PM, Fioricet, Lortab, Midrin, Nyquil, Nyquil Hot Therapy Powder, Percocet, Phrenilin, Propacet 100, Roxicet, Theraflu, Tylenol Allergy Sinus, Tylenol Cold, Tylenol Flu NightTime Maximum Strength Powder, Tylenol Multi-Symptom Hot Medication, Tylenol PM, Tylenol Sinus, Tylenol with Codeine, Vicodin, Wygesic Acetaminophen is used to reduce pain and fever. Unlike NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) (page 000), it lacks anti-inflammatory activity. Acetaminophen is available by itself or in nonprescription and prescription-only combination products used to relieve pain and the symptoms associated with colds and flu. Summary of Interactions for Acetaminophen In some cases, an herb or supplement may appear in more than one category, which may seem contradictory. For clarification, read the full article for details about the summarized interactions. May be Beneficial: Side effect reduction/preventionMilk thistle* N-acetyl cysteine May be Beneficial: Supportive interactionVitamin C* Avoid: Reduced drug absorption/bioavailabilityHibiscus Check: OtherSchisandra Depletion or interferenceNone known Adverse interactionNone known Interactions with Dietary Supplements N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) Hospitals use oral and intravenous N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) to treat liver damage induced by acetaminophen overdose poisoning. NAC is often administered intravenously by emergency room doctors. Oral NAC appears to be effective for acetaminophen toxicity. An uncontrolled trial compared intravenous NAC with oral NAC in children with acetaminophen poisoning and found that both methods were equally effective in reversing acetaminophen-induced liver toxicity. However, acetaminophen toxicity is a potential medical emergency, and should only be managed by qualified healthcare professionals. Vitamin C Taking 3 grams vitamin C with acetaminophen has been shown to prolong the amount of time acetaminophen stays in the body. This theoretically might allow people to use less acetaminophen, thereby reducing the risk of side effects. Consult with a doctor about this potential before reducing the amount of acetaminophen. Interactions with Herbs Hibiscus One small study found that hibiscus could decrease levels of acetaminophen if the drug was taken after the tea was consumed though it was not entirely clear if the decreases were clinically significant. Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) Silymarin is a collection of complex flavonoids found in milk thistle that has been shown to elevate liver glutathione levels in rats. Acetaminophen can cause liver damage, which is believed to involve glutathione depletion. In one study involving rats, silymarin protected against acetaminophen-induced glutathione depletion. While studies to confirm this action in humans have not been conducted, some doctors recommend silymarin supplementation with 200 mg milk thistle extract, containing 70–80% silymarin, three times per day for people taking acetaminophen in large amounts for more than one year and/or with other risk factors for liver problems. Schisandra (Schisandra chinensis) Gomisin A is a constituent found in the Chinese herb schisandra. In a study of rats given liver-damaging amounts of acetaminophen, gomisin A appeared to protect against some liver damage but did not prevent glutathione depletion (unlike milk thistle, as reported above). Studies have not yet confirmed this action in humans. Interactions with Foods and Other Compounds Food Food, especially foods high in pectin (including jellies), carbohydrates, and large amounts of cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and others) can interfere with acetaminophen absorption. It is unclear how much effect this interaction has on acetaminophen activity. Alcohol Moderate to high amounts of acetaminophen have caused liver damage in people with alcoholism.10 To prevent problems, people taking acetaminophen should avoid alcohol. Acezide Contains the following ingredients: Captopril (page 000) Hydrochlorothiazide (page 000) Actonorm Gel Contains the following ingredients: Aluminium Dimethicone Magnesium Peppermint oil Acyclovir Oral Common names: Virovir, Zovirax Oral Acyclovir is an antiviral drug used to treat shingles, genital herpes, and chickenpox. Summary of Interactions for Acyclovir Oral In some cases, an herb or supplement may appear in more than one category, which may seem contradictory. For clarification, read the full article for details about the summarized interactions. May be Beneficial: Supportive interactionCitrus root bark* Flavonoids* Geum japonicum* Rhus javanica* Syzygium aromaticum* Terminalia chebula* Tripterygium wilfordii* Depletion or interferenceNone known Side effect reduction/preventionNone known Reduced drug absorption/bioavailabilityNone known Adverse interactionNone known Interactions with Dietary Supplements Flavonoids The flavonoids quercetin, quercitrin, and apigenin enhanced the antiviral activity of acyclovir in test tube studies. Controlled research is needed to determine whether taking quercetin or other flavonoid supplements would increase the effectiveness of acyclovir in humans. Interactions with Herbs Citrus species The alkaloid citrusinine-1 from the root bark of citrus plants has been shown to enhance the antiviral activity of acyclovir. Further research is needed to determine whether taking citrus root bark would increase the effectiveness of acyclovir i...

Maurer editors and authors of this publication Health Notes has presented the latest information in a readable format without compromising the scientific opinion.

His research is thorough and impartial, and - it is highly recommended. 71 of 79 people found this review helpful. Good but not great. For a customer there are a lot of good information in this book, but I would not recommend this as a reference. First, it is ToTable: its shape makes it a pileup. It is 8 1 / 2 11 "and its page format is such that the book could have been printed with half of the paper. Appendices are added completely useless, considering the main entrances of the section at about Z will tell you exactly the same thing.Second all, the format is incompatible, adding to their research question. You are the voice as full as they did this? I prefer Meletis / Jacobs' books, and it's easy with Brinker and extensive cross references, Meletis / Jacobs wins hands down.

A customer, this book is very informative and has a lot of great solutions that are easy to make. The list of where to buy herbs are very helpful, plus it gives ideas on where else to look. It's a good book for newcomers to herbal remedies because it lists the types of herbs useful in preventive and curative measures. Generally a great resource for home. 11 of 12 people found the following review helpful. Interesting, but lacks important information Pharmiechick I really love this book. It's pretty organized, and is useful in pairing mode diseases / problems with herbal medicines. It is interesting, and I love the pictures, like many of the beauty products. I have some problems with it anyway. The book contains a list of 50 most common plants, and when the list of safety precautions has many interactions with other medicines, herbs, for example, missing Coumadin (warfarin), as the interaction is treated with willow bark in this book. Warfarin, but also interactions with Ginseng, Dang Shen, devil's claw, garlic (in large quantities) and Ginkgo biloba. Some of these drugs are still in the top 50 in this book, not to mention they can cause problems with warfarin. I think it's a really negative aspect of this book, because people without a pharmacy or medical history may not be aware of such problems, and some do not even know how herbal medicines (which they are!) Consider not know to check interactions or even to see if they wanted. Not another point, the book mentions that the FDA has no guidelines for the purity of herbal products, as it was not for the prescription and over-the-counter medication is. So can not get exactly what you think you are when you buy an herbal product if you use this book, I suggest you ask the pharmacist what brand of herbs suggest, because most of the pharmacists know which brands are most reliable other. In addition, you should always ask your doctor before taking herbal remedies if you are using, and when the pharmacist is your medication history, tell them what they are, too. Just because herbs are natural does not mean they are safe! 10 of 11 people found this review helpful.

In simple language, he explains the physiology of sexuality and how to enhance it by using particular herbs (gingko biloba, ginseng, wild oats, and yohimbe). He carefully distinguishes between folk uses of these plants and published research on the efficacy of each as well as explaining dosages and side effects. The author addresses herbs that support male and female sexuality and warns against harmful substances. He concludes with useful appendixes and a glossary. Unfortunately, Meletis does not footnote or include complete citations for all the clinical research he discusses. However, he does present a balanced, responsible, useful text on a popular subject littered with questionable publications. Recommended for all public libraries and for any library with a consumer health collection.-Mary A. Stout, Pima Community Coll. Lib., Tucson Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Meletis, ND and Susan Fitzgerald The authors of the best sex is a natural desire to respond to the claims of "reader" and the guidelines of the stakeholders of the materials from which they can make their own assessment: - Ginkgo: The efficacy and safety of the dose (120-240 mg standardized extract 24%) is well established by dozens of clinical studies published in medical journals, several of which are cited in the book. In addition, the German Commission E (which shares some of the same oversight functions that the U.S. FDA) notes in 136 pages is 138 (first edition 1998, Integrative Medicine Communications) that leads to this level, there are restrictions on known and unknown overdose pregnant and lactating women (though not recommended for women taking these herbal preparations or pharmaceutical products without consulting your family doctor).

"- Up-to-date: scientific sources of the book to draw almost exclusively on research conducted and published in 1990, cited by peer-reviewed scientific publications, moreover, the bibliography contains more than 50 books and articles in authoritative medical doctors, NDS and other professionals to support many of the arguments and observations in clinical Better Sex Naturally old references were cited in support of historic use from time to time - Credibility: .. licensed naturopathic physicians are the only primary care doctor writing in the U.S. who receive scientific training in pharmacognosy (the biochemical actions of herbs and medicinal uses) for the four years of medical school and use it in clinical practice. healthcare professionals who wish to correspond with Dr. Meletis about his sources and clinical experience in treating sex better course discussed conditions encouraged to contact him through HarperCollins. 6 of 7 people found this review helpful. This thing works! Susan Pavlovich I really do not know what to expect when I flipped through "Free Naturally Better," but it was not a chemistry lesson! This is the first book that was never explained why stress (and other things!) It's bad for me, and what are the effects on the body than the author, Dr. Meletis, the chemistry of herbs like ginseng and gingko is explained, and because they help with stress in ways that best improve sexual function, and even libido. That's what knocked me - there was a lot of voodoo, but I did used to know the folklore than scientific reasons why they work. I lent my copy to a friend, who later said he was taking gingko for a different reason, but sex was shown some improvement, and this book explains why. The book also tells a lot about how the choices every day our health and our sexual desire, and what to do about it except wear of taking these herbs. There is no shortage of books out there, "how to eat better," but there are some very compelling reasons to put them in the context of our lives together, including sex, even if you're not ready to give up are.

Critical evaluation of what works and what does not work for Midwest Book Review consciously written by an expert in sports nutrition and performance M. Shawn Talbott, A guide to understanding dietary supplements is an efficient and well-written 713-page survey of more than 140 dietary supplements, critical evaluation of what works and what does not. Summary of the claims, theory, scientific report, safety, value, and the dose of each supplement common, A Guide to Understanding Dietary Supplements is an excellent resource to consult doctors, pharmacists and interested non-specialist general readers interested in dietary supplements health and fitness. 2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. Excellent objective view, a scientist in most supplements by Dr. JJ Fenton Talbott's book strikes the reader as the best available in the area of ​​nutritional supplements is different from the mass of literature on this subject is very objective and scientific. The author's opinion on the value of each supplement on the basis of the medical literature. Using this perspective can cut the hype, commercial bias, and personal opinions that are the main driver for most of the other books in this field. Dr. Talbott has a unique gift, which is the ability to write scientific explanations for the mechanism of supplements and yet to make his writing understandable to a lay public. I have rarely read a book before that science was a pleasure to read. While the main focus of Dr. Talbott is the value (or less) of each supplement includes additional material that is also very enjoyable to read. Foremost among these information are other methods (excluding supplements), such as dietary manipulation, to obesity, to treat common diseases, etc. He also has 50 to 60 pages of introductory information on the broad field of dietary supplements and allows the reader excellent summary of the substance. There is only one criticism that I do and it leads me to the book, four stars instead of 5. It is the fact that the book is now 8 years old. This would be a minor concern in some areas, but we are dealing with a rapidly growing area. The book is a need for re-editing, and I really hope that Dr. Talbott is a new edition to write. If you only read one book in this area, do it here. See all 2 reviews ....

I ordered for chemical dependency to prescription drugs, such as benzodiazepans. The book was cheap .. but not worth a dollar. Dietary supplements are available, commonly known ... and not a comprehensive description of the treatment or dosage. It was just a waste of the price of the book, taxes and shipping. I would come again and will take the seller and the Amazon, because I ordered this book useless. Recovery of drugs is a serious and life threatening. It seems that the book was written to people in need who are desperate to attract ... a convincing argument for many jobs and make money ... that would be nice if it did even one iota of what it promises.

Do's and Don'ts for Martin Asina More and more consumers are willing to recognize that medical science can not have the last word on the treatment of common ailments ranging from asthma to allergies. Part of the problem in an explosion of health in a country that boasts the best health care in the world is that many Americans consistently bad choices on dietary supplements , food and medical assistance. Add in the supplement SHOPPER Gregory and Maile Pouls that the fault lies far more in the medicine than with the Powers That laziness or short-sightedness of those who suffer from common diseases in order to overcome this trend in a country where poor health to poor preventable health is excellent, the first Pouls beat that almost anyone can take over the control over his or her own health. To rely only on the advice of doctors is that they believe not enough to simply optimize to health. The first step, which they see is that a prospective patient should doctors as a starting point and not be seen as an endpoint for a health care professional. Alternate health texts, such as the Pouls', then be viewed as a complement or supplement and not substitute for the care. The Poul's writing in a prose that is halfway between the technician jargonese physician in standard medical texts, and what is in the reader's Digest condensation, ensuring maximum understanding of the overall objective reader of this text is to find the right nutritional supplement to a disease clearly identified.

Supplements Exposed: The Truth They Don't Want You to Know About Vitamins, Minerals, and Their Effects on Your Health

What if just about everything you thought you knew about supplements and health turned out to be... absolutely wrong? Nutrition expert Dr. Brian Clement, director of the world-famous Hippocrates Health Institute, explores the various myths that have made supplements a "buyer beware" industry.Supplements Exposed strips away layers of deception to reveal the truth about what millions of supplement users each year have taken for granted. For the first time, you will learn how:* Nearly all supplements sold in the United States and the world are synthetics created in pharmaceutical industry labs. As a result, they can be toxic to your health.* There are distinct differences between natural (plant-derived) supplements and synthetic (chemically-derived) supplements and how they each impact your health.* Nearly all medical science studies of nutrients and human health have used synthetics rather than natural nutrients, which throws the accuracy of all negative laboratory results into serious doubt. This provocative book guides you through the minefield of choices you face every time you buy vitamins and minerals. It shows you how to decipher product labels that are otherwise deceptive, how to choose naturally occurring (plant-derived) supplements, why recommended daily allowances spread confusion, and much more.

Most helpful customer reviews 44 of 48 people found the following review helpful. Everything you thought you knew about food was wrong! By Susan Schenck In this provocative, well researched book, Dr. Brian Clement challenges everything we think we know about dietary supplements. The first myth is that it shows that we have no nutritional supplements, only food. He quotes a U.S. Senate report from 1936 which showed that the Earth is depleted in nutrients, and explains that while organic farming is not enough! He continues to give us the story of vitamin production, and the more you read, the more you realize that it sounds a bit better than the drug companies! Another misconception is that synthetic vitamins are just as natural nutrients, or even more effective or totally absorbed. (! In fact, many vitamins are found in amorphous pots Port) As director of the Institute of Hippocrates, he examined the blood of more than 11,000 customers who used synthetic supplements and has shown this to be true, but here is where it gets tricky Synthetic vitamins may label their products as whole foods or a food source for legal loopholes - while in fact just a base of yeast, bacteria or algae or other food that medium was enriched with synthetic vitamins! Sorry all you network marketers - even multi-level supplements usually come from the same source, same producers of synthetic vitamins. Our best option is to buy "products on the label that its powers or vitamin or mineral nutrients came from" natural power "and on the label, what exactly are these food sources. In addition, products bearing vitamin NOS (naturally present in the standard) logo is safe and guaranteed to have the power to only vitamin comes from real foods, whole "(p 161). Myths are subjected to further studies of vitamin reliable, and are given a list for five reasons. We learn not to trust the label "natural" for what it may contain toxic additives. additives commonly found in dietary supplements contain fillers, binders, disintegrant, lubricant, flavoring agents, coloring agents, preservatives and coating materials. There is a whole chapter about the fallacy of fish oils. Brian says that the fish will be toxic, and this creates pollution lipid peroxide. It's been a lot of propaganda to take fish oil, especially for its benefits DHA (the brain is 60% DHA). I do not agree with Brian that most people their omega-3 from flax seed, chia seeds and nuts to get, and that the body is converted to DHA and EPA, that the brain is so urgently needs people who are over 30 (it unless they have been vegan most of her life), ill, toxic, or have a history of taking medications often have to DHA and EPA directly or --- fish, seaweed or eggs from hens fed flax or chia seeds. A chapter in depth about the role of certain vitamins made available, and another about the most important minerals. Appendix A gives us food sources of these nutrients. These chapters make this book great resource! The end of the book contains information on Codex alarming. My goal (since 1962) was that pharmaceutical companies (December 31, 2009!) To the vitamins again, making them available (except minutes ineffective doses), as prescribed by your doctor. And is likely to become more expensive drugs! Who knows if they are still taking the vitamins NSA? We lose our freedom of health, because the mainstream media (owned by pharmaceutical companies almost) silent about this update: I just saw the author of this book a speech last night. Brian said he just learned that Codex does not, then we will continue to have our supplements and health freedom (relative) for at least 2 years! 7 of 8 people found this review helpful. For those who want the truth about vitamins .... By Cam This book is the best and most factual that I have ever read.

Amazon Sales Rank: #127613 in Books Published on: 2002-05-21 Original language: English Number of items: 1 Binding: Mass Market Paperback 336 pages Review The boom in nutritional supplements has been bewildering to most health-conscious people. One camp, made up mostly of traditional scientists and nutritionists, says that supplements are unnecessary, that you can get all the nutrients you need from a well-balanced diet. Then there's the group that says a normal diet can't supply all the super-duper stuff that researchers of varying degrees of credibility discover on a regular basis. Which set is right? Earl Mindell, for one, is solidly in the latter, recommending virtually everything you'll find on the shelves of your neighborhood nutrition store. He answers questions you might have about supplements you've heard of but don't understand, and he explains what all the excitement (if any) is about. From DHEA to cat's claw, bovine tracheal cartilage to chromium picolinate, he endorses all. About the Author Earl Mindell, R.Ph., Ph.D., is the bestselling author of Earl Mindell's New Herb Bible, Earl Mindell's Vitamin Bible for the 21st Century, Earl Mindell's Peak Performance Bible, Earl Mindell's Food as Medicine, Earl Mindell's Secret Remedies, Earl Mindell's Anti-Aging Bible, and Earl Mindell's Soy Miracle. He is a registered pharmacist, a master herbalist, and a professor of nutrition at Pacific Western University in Los Angeles; he also conducts nutrition seminars around the world.

By Frank de Monbrun ( Dr. Mindell handling of the issue of supplements is not only a blanket endorsement of each item available on the shelves of your local health food store. He leads you through an explanation of the appendix with examples and references to germane research (if it publishes any), assessments of the myth and hype surrounding its use, and then give a cautious recommendation to use or well-founded argument for abolition. After extensive research to try on my own, to find the "truth" about dietary supplements, found Dr. Mindell's book is like finding a nugget of gold in the information wilderness. Read and enjoy! 26 of 30 people found the following review helpful. Hmmm. Not so fast. To BookGuy is a source of information is good, but it seems Mindell has not complied with a supplement that will not support one way or another, but with a caveat or two that I was "researching" supplements for a long time, too, but I was with a different interpretation of working as advertised. I would not go so far as to say that this is a "bible". See "Physicians' Desk Reference for Nutritional Supplements" if you want to read the real "bible" of supplements. The PDR does not cut the facts to fit a lifestyle. Do not get me wrong, Mindell is not to deceive, but your medicine cabinet should only be filled with bottles of herbs, vitamins and other things, and his brother, who does not need all these things to live a healthy life. A handful of supplements ... OK, but not all supplements under the sun, trying to be thinner, smarter, sexy, etc. They can not all be good for you, and there are other research claims out there that says that some are not, and can be more harmful than is generally benign, Mindell book for additional drives. If you are not a member of the choir is still reaching for the aforementioned PDR before you jump in. 10 of 11 people found the following review helpful. Valable health information beyond vitamins. By Earl Mindell, DR Schryer is rightly famous for his best selling book, Earl Mindell's Vitamin Bible (currently available as Earl Mindell's Vitamin Bible for the 21st century). Thousands - perhaps millions - of people have their health and even their lives to include the information in Earl Mindell's Vitamin Bible. Dr. Mindell has now written an equally well-written and authoritative book on dozens of dietary supplements that are not typically covered in books on vitamins. Many supplements discussed in this new book - including coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine, and DHA, to name a few - are important to human health as vitamins are If you are seriously interested in learning about the wide range of nutritional supplements that are currently available, I will not be without this book.
