We will give some examples of certain medications, their value, and adverse side effects (losses of ions/vitamins) and how to correct their imbalances. For example, many people take certain medications (drugs) for various conditions, but do not realize that it may cause a loss of ions and vitamins, which are important for optimal and ongoing cellular health. Therefore, when taking such medications you need to eat and drink more of certain foods and drinks.

Did you know that certain medications you take cause you to lose key vitamins and minerals, which if not replaced, will lead to health problems? Proper eating, juicing and using supplements can replace these.
