Fatigue, dry mouth, weight gain, nausea, liver damage, stroke, heart failure. Every year tens of millions of Americans suffer from such unwelcome consequences of over-the-counter and prescription drugs. Most believe these side effects are the inevitable price they must pay for restoring health. But that is not the case. Drawing on cutting-edge scientific research, The Side Effects Bible reveals that up to thirty percent of drug-induced side effects are caused because the drug saps the human body of essential vitamins and minerals€”everyday nutrients that can easily be replaced by following the simple, healthy dietary and supplement guidelines outlined in this first-of-its-kind reference guide. Even minor deficiencies of necessary nutrients can bring on major difficulties, and The Side Effects Bible will tell readers what to eat for every drug they take.

From the Inside Flap:

Fatigue, dry mouth, weight gain, nausea, liver damage, stroke, heart failure. The list of side effects caused by over-the-counter and prescription drugs is seemingly endless, and every year tens of millions of Americans suffer from such unwelcome consequences of their medications. Most believe these side effects are the inevitable price they must pay for good health. But that is not the case.

Bringing to light the most cutting-edge scientific research, The Side Effects Bible explains to readers how up to thirty percent of drug-induced side effects are caused because the drug saps the human body of essential vitamins and minerals–everyday nutrients that can easily be replaced by following simple, healthy dietary guidelines. This first-of-its-kind reference guide outlines the specific foods and supplements to take to counter the side effects of over 300 common medications. For example:

· Eat leafy greens to replenish folic acid depleted by oral contraceptives and over–the–counter pain relievers like ibuprofen or aspirin.
· Take coenzyme Q10 supplements to guard against the effects of antidepressants like Elavil and cholesterol–lowering statin drugs like Lipitor.
· Eat bananas when you use laxatives to prevent irregular heartbeat, muscle weakness, and nausea caused by potassium depletion.
· Salmon, sardines, and egg yolk's contain Vitamin B12, which can counteract the risk of anemia and nerve damage caused by Zantac, Pepcid, and other ulcer medications.
· Eat parsley to help prevent problems with blood clotting caused by penicillin and other drugs that rob you of Vitamin K.

The Side Effects Bible is an essential—even lifesaving—guide that tells readers exactly what to eat for every drug they take, as even minor deficiencies of necessary nutrients can bring on major difficulties.
