Z-Pak, one of the most popular and often-prescribed antibiotics in the US, can be deadly to individuals with heart disease. According to ABC news, A Vanderbilt University study found an increased risk of death from heart disease in the first five days of using a Z-Pak when compared to other common antibiotics or no antibiotics. The danger is greater for people with heart arrhythmias (irregular heart beat) and those who have low blood levels of potassium and magnesium.
Eat Food. Not Too Much. Mostly Plants.

The Raw Fusion Lifestyle aims for about 50% of your food being raw, which is a worthy way to combat inflammation and make sure that you get the maximum nutrients and enzymes from your daily food intake. Other Raw Fusion tenets include a) having at least two significant servings (1-2 cups) of greens per day; b) better food combining to avoid allergic reactions and inflammatory response; and c) meal prep should be manageable and practical so that this way of eating has staying power, which is the secret to a lifestyle vs. being on a diet.
Lettuce wraps make the ideal Raw Fusion Meal. Whenever I am able to order them in a restaurant, they are my go-to meal, and also make them often at home for the whole family. The more greens you get in and the less starch you consume (bread, rice) the better you will feel and managing your weight should be effortless.
