At GM we encourage you to speak with your doctor about the use of your medications and have them professionally reviewed regularly for their effectiveness and need. We do not suggest you make any alterations without consulting with your doctor.
Some medications, especially those containing the stress hormone, cortisol, will directly turn on your FAT Program. Others, like over-the-counter pain medications, may compromise liver function, add to your toxic load (see FAT Program Trigger: Toxicity) and make it difficult for your body to burn fat.
GM promotes an environment where the body can use its own innate healing response and in time, reduce the need for medication.
