What You Should Know About Mixing Medications and Diet...

I had a call the other day from a potential client in a serious situation. He was young and had been diagnosed with CAD (Coronary Artery Disease), suffering from extremely high blood pressure and cholesterol, his doctor had put him on a medication that was suppose to lower and control these symptoms, and he had been on this medication for over 2 years.

During this time, this 24 year old man had developed a blockage in his hand that had become inflamed and eventually ruptured, causing the possibility of amputation. The situation was brought under control using anti-inflammatory means, but he remained on his cholesterol medication without adjustment even after this incident. About 6 months later, this young man was suffering from another blockage, but this time, it was in a critical area that couldn't be treated without specialization and the local doctors did not have the experience to treat him. These doctors told him that there was no one in the 4 state area that could serve him, he was desperate and afraid, and turned to me for help.

When he first called, I asked him some questions to help me understand his situation.

How old are you? (25)

Do you suffer from High blood pressure or high cholesterol? (yes)

Does your family have a history of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes or insulin resistance? (yes)

Does you family have a history of bowel problems, colon cancer or colon polyps? (yes, my twin brother)

What is your Ethnic Origin? (English)

Are you physically active? (yes, when I can be)

Has your doctor put you on any medication (yes, and he named it)

At the time that you were put on this medication, did your doctor recommend a glycemic, low fat, low sodium diet? (no)

What kinds of foods have you been eating while on this medication? (regular foods, meat, vegetables, potatoes, you know, stuff in restaurants and stuff that is easy to fix at home)

With the condition that you currently have, do you suffer from loss of vision or blurred vision? (yes)

Are you suffering from Migraine headaches? (yes, constantly)

Are you suffering from the loss of motor skills, have difficulty walking, chewing, swallowing, lifting? (yes)

Are these symptoms constant, or do they come and go? (Constant)

Is this blockage behind your right eye? (yes)

What has your doctor recommended? (they have recommended that I be treated elsewhere, because they do not have a specialist here)

Have they recommended a place you should go or a specialist that you should see? (no, they can't even tell me what kind of doctor I should get)

My recommendations were for him to seek help immediately, within the next week.

I suggested that his doctors give him a letter of recommendation to see a Cerebral Neuro-Vascular Surgeon. He and his friends got on the Internet and found some specialists that could fit him in in the next few days. My fear was that the situation had gone on to long, and that he was in imminent danger. I told him that when he returned from his surgery, that he should call to make an appointment with me so that we could get his blood pressure and cholesterol under control, so this would not happen again.

He asked me why this had happened in the first place, he had taken his medications like they had been prescribed. I explained that when medications are used in the body, they have to not only act, but they are also acted upon.

When you use medications designed to reduce something in the body, you shouldn't add things that would cause the medications to have to compete or work harder to accomplish the goal. A cholesterol medication to control the fat in your blood, and then eat fat, or things that create fat. A diabetic medication to control blood sugar, and then eat sugar or carbs that convert to sugars. A medication used for the treatment of gout, then eat things that are high in acid or create acid. These kinds of things can make the medications ineffective, and a waste of time and money.

He said that he had been on this medication for two years, and that the cholesterol numbers had never been affected by the medication. I told him that there is a way to lower his cholesterol effectively, using a restrictive diet, exercise, and a few supplements along with his prescription, and that as soon as he returned with relative health, we would start him on his program.

For most people, when they become ill, they go to their doctors in search of a quick fix, a pill or a shot that will make things better instantly, that doesn't require any effort or discomfort on their part. The sad truth of the matter is that "possession" requires "responsibility", and "responsibility" requires "action".
