Are your prescriptions driving micronutrient deficiency? Want to know more about how prescription medications can drive imbalance? Curious how you can support the body while taking certain medications or avoid them altogether with strategic supplementation? Tune in to hear Ali and Becki discuss common drugs prescribed in the US from birth control to PPIs to statins to antidepressants and beyond.
In this episode, Ali and Becki discuss how prescriptions can be used as a band-aid approach, often neglecting underlying issues and worsening health over time. This is only compounded by polypharmacy or the use of multiple medications with 70% of Americans on one medication and 20% taking 2 or more! While it can be tempting to prescribe a pill to fix an ill, functional medicine interventions can actually get to the root cause of dysfunction and support whole body health. Learn about the most common nutrient deficiencies, why prescriptions fall short of solutions and how focusing on strategic supplementation can eliminate the need for medication in the first place.
