What NOT to eat while you are taking a drug
The first, and only, search engine in the world on the interactions between food and drugs medicinal plants
What no instructions for any medication ever told you
Drugs, foods and plants not seem to belong to completely different worlds together. Yet we assume any substance in our bodies has an effect that is independent of the purpose for which we have assumed, or food that is healing. Among drugs, foods and medicinal plants can take place, therefore, a conversation chemistry, from which, in many cases, derives a dislike such as to render the drug that assume little effective or sometimes very toxic
So it is with the pineapple that increases the risk of bleeding of anti-inflammatory drugs, those that we use for headaches or colds, or for that grapefruit potentiates the side effects of drugs against cholesterol, for milk decreases 'effectiveness of some antibiotics and antifungal agents, for the onion that potentiates the effect of drugs used in diabetes exposing yourself to risky hypoglycemia, and again for the lettuce with anticoagulants.
And so on, until you get to the more than fifty thousand interactions contained in Farmamenu, all documented in over 200 scientific papers (including texts and publications) and scientifically approved by the University of Naples Federico II.
