Do not stop taking any medications on your own, without appropriate advice from your healthcare provider. Many patients are able to eliminate certain medications or cut the dosage after they have completed the plan because various symptoms and health complaints have disappeared.

The McCombs Plan tends to help the body function more efficiently and the body absorbs and uses the nutrients from foods more effectively; this also applies to medications. Work with your doctor if you need to adjust your dosages accordingly. In addition, the plan leads to improvement in your body’s detoxification processes and patients often report fewer and less severe side effects from medications.

Ideally, your primary healthcare provider will note that prior health problems are alleviated and, therefore, medications are unnecessary and, eventually, the bottles of prescription medications that have become a part of your life become a thing of the past. I have seen this transformation take place many times.
