Which foods to avoid with certain medications?

We all have heard of the risk of ‘drug-drug-interaction’ when people are taking more than one medication for different ailments. Most of us are also aware that taking herbal supplements in combination with allopathic drugs is hazardous. But only a few people know that there are certain, potential food-drug combinations, which clash each other, reduce the effectiveness of the drug and cause adverse reaction and complications. So keeping a close watch on the foods and drinks that you tend to binge on would be ideal in such circumstances. Discuss it with your doctor. If you know which foods to avoid with your medications, you can receive the maximum benefits of your prescription while avoiding harmful complications.

    Very Good article… Ladies don’t know how important it is to eat right and have a clear mind… Stress is a huge cause of fibroids which is a very common thing for women. Always use what you know and expand your mind always to create a better life for yourself. change takes sacrifice. Oh and don’t forget that Life is a beautiful journey. Live life to its fullest and enjoy all that it has to offer. Planting flowers and watching them grow and sitting on my back porch every day reading and drinking tea makes me feel so much better and so much more at ease with life. Do little things that make you as a person feel worthy and naturally you will feel fulfilled. Look within for that deep love and happiness. It takes balance with all that the world is going through. Blind faith that everything will be alright
