Common Med Depletes Key Nutrients

From eNewsletter 4/11/2022

DID YOU KNOW we have always recommend that our clients who take statins supplement with Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) because statins deplete the energizing enzyme? This was confirmed in a new The Journal of Nutrition study that states CoQ10 supplementation, added to conventional therapy, is safe and offers benefits clinically and at the cellular level. While we always suspected it, but did not have the data to back it up, a new study from The Journal of Nutrition discovered that CoQ10 is not the only beneficial agent that statins deplete. The researchers purport that statin use may lower blood concentrations of iron, zinc, magnesium, and potassium. Alternatively, ezetimibe (another cholesterol lowering medication) may increase serum calcium and retinol (vitamin A) concentrations and the new class of cholesterol lowering medication, PCSK9 inhibitors, may increase serum vitamin D levels, which is a good thing.

Still Getting Allergy Shots?

Steve: If you still get allergy shots for environmental allergies, are you living in the dark ages? For years now, we have recommended that our clients seek out sublingual allergy drops to replace allergy shots, with great success. The major issue was lack of availability. Mounting data have confirmed the efficacy of these drops for myriad allergens, so many more allergists warming to them, although not as rapidly as we would like. Unfortunately, market-driven healthcare makes it hard to practice allergy medicine with the patient's best interest in mind. Procedures for diagnosing and treating allergies cater to insurance companies' reimbursement policies. Thus, allergy shots are still allergists' bread and butter. Once sublingual drops become as profitable, allergy shots will be a thing of the past. Until then, if you are an allergy patient, you must seek out an allergist, or at the very least implore that your current allergist, use sublingual drops. Most sublingual drops for environmental allergens are FDA-approved, so they should be reimbursed by insurance. Sublingual drops for food allergies are not approved as of yet (except for one for peanut), so allergists who dispense these type of sublingual drops will charge you directly. Many clients have found the expense worth it for ease of use, no weekly travel, and you won't feel like a pincushion!
