Review:

A commonsense approach to understanding how the action of medicine
can be influenced by foods and dietary supplements . it’s a must-read for anyone taking medication.”
SANJAY GUPTA, MD, STAFF NEUROSURGEON, EMORY CLINIC;
CHIEF MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT, CNN


If you plan on taking another pill in your life . . . for anything you’ll be happy you picked up this book. Madelyn and John explain so clearly the do’s and don’ts. You have to wonder why no one has done this before! Kudos, you two!”
HODA KOTB, COHOST, NBC TODAY SHOW

You have to wonder why Don’t Eat This If You’re Taking That hasn’t been
written before. It’s so obviously necessary in our take a pill for anything
that ails you’ culture. Kudos to Madelyn and John for making it so
powerful yet simple to understand.”
KATHIE LEE GIFFORD, COHOST, NBC TODAY SHOW

I’ll never take medicine again without checking Madelyn and John’s book first.”
REGIS PHILBIN, TV HOST

This is a phenomenally valuable, much-needed book; it answers questions
patients, including my own, have been posing for years and for
which answers have been incredibly hard to find. Madelyn and John have found them, and presented them clearly and comprehensively. Anyone who takes
medication, or cares for anyone who takes medicine, should own a copy.
I plan to refer to mine routinely.”
DAVID KATZ, MD, MPH, DIRECTOR, PREVENTION RESEARCH CENTER,
YALE UNIVERSITY; PRESIDENT, AMERICAN COLLEGE OF LIFESTYLE MEDICINE


"Written by husband-and-wife neuroscientists, this easy-to-understand guide gives potentially lifesaving information about foods that can interact with common prescription medicines given for hypertension, acid reflux, high cholesterol, pain relief, diabetes, migraines, and depression. Understandably, the authors couldn’t tackle every disease and drug ... Readers will undoubtedly
keep their fingers crossed for a sequel."

NBC Today Show nutrition and health guru Madelyn Fernstrom presents the ultimate guide to food and medicine interaction. While no one wants to take medication to treat diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or other ailments, for millions of people, this is a daily reality. Seven out of ten Americans take prescription drugs. But when it comes to food and medicine interactions, what you don't know can harm your health. Don't Eat This If You're Taking That takes the mystery out of food and medications, providing an easy-to-use guide for anyone taking a medication--short term or long term--that indicates foods to avoid that can interfere with the action of the medication.

We all believe a diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products is the path to healthy eating, right? Not always.Consumers can easily personalize their healthiest eating plan to work with not against their medications. Seller Inventory # AAS9781632204523
