Are You Taking Any Medications?

Real food nutrition is powerful! It has the ability to fuel disease or improve our health. With that said, if you are taking medications, especially if you take any for blood sugar/diabetes, high blood pressure, or a blood thinner, it's important that you speak with your prescribing physician before making dietary changes. The needs of these meds could drastically change in just 24-48 hours for many, and if not properly adjusted can result in reactions that could be medically problematic.

If you are not happy with the advice of your current medical team, now is as good of time as any to get a new primary care physician. You might begin looking at IFM.org for a functional medicine doctor in your area. These are those medical professionals who have been trained in what's referred to as "root cause medicine", where the goal is finding the imbalance and not just the symptom.
