MUST Listen if you take acid reducers!
 Watch on Youtube.com Welcome to today's episode of Heal Thyself Radio, this is Dr. Eric Madrid. Today we are going to talk about acid reducers and how they may rob your body of essential vitamins and minerals.   DISCLAIMER: The material I cover in this video is for informational purposes only and not intended to be medical advice for your unique situation. Consult with your own personal physician if you have questions.  As you know, prescription medications and many over-the-counter drugs, that is those medicines which can be purchased without a prescription, can play an important role in symptom management and treatment of chronic health conditions. However, they are not without potential side effects.  While the U.S. population accounts for only 4.3 percent of the world’s 7.5 billion people, Americans consume 25 percent of the world’s pharmaceutical drugs. No bueno!  This does not mean we are the healthiest! Far from it.   Despite the high use of pharmaceutical prescription drugs, citizens of the United States rank 31st in the world with an average lifespan of 79.3 years according to Wikipedia. Costa Rica is #30 and Cuba #32. Japan is at the top of the list, with a lifespan of 83.7 years, while Japanese women live for an average of almost 87 years. Minimizing one’s need for both prescription and non-prescription drugs and choosing better nutrition and a healthier lifestyle should be the goal for all people who want to improve health. Depending on your current health status, acid reducers may be absolutely needed. However, lifestyle changes, diet modification and routine exercise may improve one's acid reflux and overall digestive issues.  Lets talk about  Acid Reducers- A poor diet is the main reason many develop acid reflux symptoms. Acid reflux is also referred to by some as GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease) or heartburn.  Both refer to the same condition.   Sometimes, a person may have a hiatl hernia, which results in acid reflux, no matter how clean their diet is. Again, this can be very troubling if present. If you have persistent acid reflux, consulting with a gastroenterologists should be done. Ask your family doctor for a referral. The sale of acid-reducing medications has become a billion dollar market industry worldwide. In 2013, prescription acid reducers generated over 10 billion U.S. dollars in sales.  Unfortunately, these medications give people “permission” to eat foods they should not eat. These medications frequently block the symptoms which would otherwise notify a person to avoid this food or that food. The FDA originally approved these medications to treat stomach ulcers and symptoms of occasional acid reflux. However, they are supposed to be given for only 4 to 8 weeks. This is all the time it takes to heal a bleeding stomach ulcer, in most cases. Despite this, Many take acid reducers for many months, years and possibly even decades, unnecessarily. Let me be honest, There is sometimes a good reason to take the medications. Those with precancerous changes in the esophagus, a condition called Barrett’s esophagus, should take the medication as long as advised by the specialist.  Also, there is a rare condition called Zollinger-Ellison where excess acid is secreted. When present, long term acid reducers are advised.  In these situation, the benefits outweigh the risk in these situations. However, I assume in time, even those with Barretts will be told otherwise.  There are Two Main Classes of Acid Reducers  First, there are Histamine (H2) b

Can birth control pills deplete nutrients?
Can birth control pills deplete nutrients?   The answer is yes.   Watch this podcast on YouTube.com Birth control pills  are made of synthetic hormones, were first approved in 1960 as a means of preventing pregnancy. When used appropriately, they are 99.7 percent effective.   Worldwide, over 100 million women take them.    These pills can deplete B vitamins and magnesium, so if they are prescribed to you, consider taking a daily prenatal vitamin at a minimum.    Most women on birth control pills will also need to supplement with magnesium, especially if muscle cramps, headaches, and heart palpitations occur.   Nutrients depleted by birth control pills include the following:   Calcium  Magnesium  Vitamin C  Zinc  Folic Acid  Vitamin B2  Vitamin B6  Vitamin B12  Vitamin D   Ideally, a well balanced diet rich in colorful fruits and  vegetables can help one get most of these nutrients.  Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D may need to be taken separately.    If you choose to Supplement, here are the doses to consider:  -Calcium 500 mg daily (one needs adequate vitamin D to ensure absorption of calcium)  -Magnesium chelate -125 mg to 500 mg daily  - B-Complex multivitamin  - Vitamin C-500 mg daily minimum  - Zinc-10 mg to 25 mg (also present in a quality multivitamin)  - Vitamin D-2,000 IU to 5,000 IU daily   Lastly, If you have any concerns about whether your medication is affecting your nutritional status, consult with your physician.  Remember, this information is not routinely taught to us physicians in Medical School.       Also, realize that there are other side effects to birth control pills.  These increase high blood pressure, blood clots to name a few.  Sources:  Drug Muggers: Which Medications Are Robbing Your Body of Essential Nutrients--and Natural Ways to Restore Them by Suzy Cohen.   DISCLAIMER: The information in this video is for informational purposes only.

Do Blood Pressure Medications rob vitamins and minerals from your body?
In this podcast,  we  discuss  a common blood pressure medication class  and it's  affect on your vitamin and mineral levels.  Watch on youtube The blood pressure class to which I refer are Diuretic  Medications.   A diuretic is a type of medications that helps one eliminate excess sodium and ultimately water, from their kidneys.   Diuretics are frequently used as first-line therapy for the treatment of high blood pressure.   These medications do a great job for most in lowering blood pressure values.  I frequently prescribe them to patients when diet and lifestyle changes are not enough to lower their blood pressure.   It is important if you are on this type of medication, do not stop taking it.  High blood pressure is also a dangerous condition which can increase  your risk for a heart attack, stroke and kidney disease.   Diuretic blood pressure medications include:   -Hydrochlorothiazide   -Triamterene-hydrochlorothiazide (Dyazide, Maxzide)  -Chlorthalidone   -Spironolactone (aldactone) and    sometimes furosemide  also known as lasix.     Fortunately, these medications do a great job for most and lower blood pressure to safe levels.   However, regular use can result in low blood levels of sodium, potassium and magnesium.  In addition, they may caused dehydration in some if water intake is inadequate.   Other Nutrients depleted , in addition to sodium, potassium and magnesium include:   Calcium (Ca)  Vitamin C  Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)  Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)  Zinc   Low levels of sodium can cause weakness, fatigue, dizziness and sometimes even mental confusion.  Low levels of potassium and magnesium can cause muscle cramps and in some cases, irregular heartbeats, which may or may not cause symptoms.   Consider asking your health care provider if alternative blood pressure medications can be considered.   However, do not stop taking your medication unless advised to do so by your physician.   Some studies show Co-enzyme Q10 and Hawthorne Berry supplementation may help lower blood pressure.  Magnesium may also be helpful.  Low levels of vitamin C can result in easy bruising while low levels of zinc can weaken the immune system, lead to skin rashes, and result in chronic diarrhea.  If you are are taking a diuretic, try to get these nutrients from your diet, which is the preferred method.    A diet high in fruits and leafy green vegetables may be helpful.  Also, the  following supplements may be considered, especially if you are unable to get adequate amounts through diet.   Calcium 500 mg daily (one needs adequate vitamin D to ensure absorption of calcium)   Magnesium chelate-125 mg to 500 mg   Potassium (also present in a quality multivitamin)   Vitamin C- 500 mg daily minimum   B-complex as directed on the label   Zinc-10 mg to 25 mg  (also present in quality multivitamins)   Also, follow me on instagram and twitter @ericmadridmd  DISCLAIMER- the information in this video if for informational purposes only.  I am not providing you with medical advice.

Does Metformin cause a Vitamin B12 Deficiency? MUST LISTEN IF DIABETIC!
Watch this video on youtube.com  If you or a family member have diabetes, chances are metformin is being taken, or at least has been taken in the past.    This medication is metformin, also known by the brand names Glucophage, Glumetza, Fortamet, Riomet, and Glucophage XR. The brand names may vary depending on where in the world you live.  If you or a family member is on this drug, you will want to make sure you are aware of this common vitamin deficiencies it can cause. Although metformin does a good job lowering blood sugar, by making your insulin more efficient, it may cause various nutrient deficiencies, including a Vitamin B12 deficiency.  Ironically, vitamin B12 deficiency is associated with numbness and tingling in the lower legs, feet and toes. This is something doctors call peripheral neuropathy or diabetic neuropathy in those with diabetes.  Low vitamin B12 levels can also affect the memory so optimizing blood levels is important.  However, it is important to realize that diabetes and elevated blood sugar readings can also cause neuropathy symptoms, so don't assume your neuropathy is 100 % due to vitamin B12 deficiency.   It is possible that   both diabetes and the b12 deficiency are contributing to neuropathy symptoms.  Likewise, diabetes can also affect memory and appears to be a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease. If you are on metformin, ask your physician to measure your blood Vitamin B12 level at least once per year. Most laboratories report vitamin B12 levels between 200 pg/mL and 1100 pg/ml being in the normal range. Many integrative medicine doctors and  even many neurologists recommend blood levels of 500 pg/mL or more to optimize nerve and brain health. Vitamin B12 deficiency can also be tested by measuring one's homocysteine level or one's methylmalonic acid level. Both will be elevated when vitamin B12 is suboptimal.  Although sometimes, the vitamin B12 blood test itself may be in a normal range.  Other Nutrients depleted by metformin include Vitamin B6  and  Co-enzyme Q10 Both of these are important for brain, heart and nerve health. Vitamin B6 and C0Q10  also can be measured doing a blood test. However, depending on one's insurance, the costs may not be covered so one may consider simply taking the supplements without doing a lab test. The recommend dosing for these Supplements are as follows: Vitamin B12 (500 mcg to 1,000 mcg daily ) Vitamin B6 (25 mg to 100 mg daily) Co-enzyme Q10 (50 mg minimum) These nutrients may be present in a quality multivitamin but chances are, not at the doses advised so a separate supplement may need to be taken.

Dr. Madrid discusses 9 signs and symptoms of a magnesium deficiency and which common medications may be the cause.   Doctors estimate up to 4 in 5 people have low magnesium levels.  You can also watch the video version of this on www.youtube.com These symptoms include:   -Eyelid twitches  -Leg cramps  -Heart Palpitations  -Menstrual Cramps  -Overactive Bladder  -Constipation  -Tension Headaches  -Migraine Headaches  -Esophageal Spasms (?Chest pain)    Many supplement with magnesium chelate  (ie magnesium citrate, mag malate, mag fumarate, etc.)  at a dose ranging from 125 to 400 mg per day.  Magnesium oxide is not usually advised most of the time due to it's overall low absorption. Although, magnesium oxide is helpful for many with constipation.

Embrace Failure, It is Necessary for Success
Embrace Failure “Doubt Kills More Dreams than Failure Ever will” Dr. Madrid discusses how many people are living their lives fearful of failure. Dr. Madrid explains the importance of failure and how without failure once will never succeed. The most successful people all have stories of failure. However, doubt and fear of failure keep millions from achieving their dreams. Failure is not negative! Failure is excellent! NBA Game Winning Shots: Michael Jordan has 19 game winning shots, he is second to Kobe Bryants 25. Kobe Bryant actually has more MISSED game winning shots than Michael Jordan. In either case, both players are amongst the greatest because they were willing to fail in front of millions.  Major League Baseball Home Run Leaders: Barry Bonds holds the Major League Baseball home run record with 762 but is Number 23 with on the list of strike outs. Hank Aaron is currently second with 755. I misspoke in the podcast, he is not in the top 100 in strikeouts! However, the lesson does not change. Reggie Jackson actually has more strikeouts than any other MLB player, despite this, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1993.

Interview with Mushroom Expert, Jeff Chilton
Dr. Madrid interviews Jeff Chilton, mushroom expert and “Fun guy”. They discuss the health benefits of specific mushrooms and how they can help enrich your life, lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation.  In 1983, after 10 years of commercial mushroom growing experience, Jeff co-authored and published the classic, bestselling book on small-scale mushroom cultivation, The Mushroom Cultivator. That same year he moved his family to British Columbia to start a mushroom spawn laboratory and small speciality mushroom growing facility. By 1989, after much research, it became clear that many of the specialty mushrooms had medicinal properties and this was the wave of the future.  In 1989 Jeff made his first trip to China to attend the International Society for Mushroom Science’s (ISMS) conference in Nanjing and he discovered the depth of mushroom knowledge and production capacity that China offered.  The relationships Jeff built over the next 10 years laid the foundation that made Nammex (www.nammex.com) a leader in the new category of medicinal mushrooms. This same year, 1989, Nammex was founded.

Control your emotions, it can be the difference between life and death!
Controlling one’s emotions can be difficult at times. As the saying goes, 10% of life is what happens to you while 90% of life is how you react. We can choose the 90%. Many people spend their life blaming others for their problems. If you blame someone else for your problems, you are in essence giving them the power and expecting them to fix your problems. You are now a powerless. Take responsibility for your life, take the “power to fix” back, make smart but frequently hard choices and you’ll see your life will improve. We each have one life to live, create the life you want. Don’t expect somebody else to create your life for you.
