Understanding the interactions between drugs and medication is an important skill that few of us stay up to date with. Keeping abreast of current medications including interactions is critical to ensure we protect patient safety and maximise our clinical outcomes.
Considerable harm can result from drug-herb interactions and from drug-induced nutritional deficiencies. We need to be fully aware of these effects and what to do about them. Also, adverse drug reactions and side effects are often surprisingly due to induced nutritional inadequacies that we can address very simply.
This Masterclass comprehensively covers the requirements you need to safely and most effectively combine your treatment strategies with the largest classes of pharmaceutical drug therapies.
We cover the specific mechanisms of drug-herb interactions and drug-induced deficiencies, and then we look closely at each of the major drug classes and the issues we face with these. You will develop a clear understanding of how interactions affect your patients and how to reduce these to reduce adverse drug effects.
