Here’s an analogy: inflation is a lifestyle disease and the FED is a drug company with old-school MDs distributing products that mask the symptoms and ignore the cause.
Most DC officials don’t seem to understand economics.
For the few who do, they must watch helplessly as the FED and its pet banks rob the people of their savings and enslave the government to debt. It leaves a tough choice that I’d imagine might keep a politician awake at night.
So pretend you’re a new DC politician who still has enough conscience left to ponder a dilemma…
- “I can stay in office by voting for more debt and more spending, or…
- “I can do the right thing for the survival of the country, vote against spending borrowed money and lose my job.”
If you doubt this represents the DC reality, imagine this: You’re an average retired Boomer with no savings, the usual medical bills, rent, car payments, and the endless one-time expenses that make it impossible to survive on a Social Security check. Would you vote for someone who said she wants to shrink the size of your SS check and replace the Social Security Ponzi scheme with something sustainable?
You realize there aren’t nearly enough young people at the bottom of the SS pyramid to fund all you Boomers at the top. But the government took money out of your paycheck and promised to give it back when you retired. The DC idiots lied about the “untouchable SS lock box.” They went ahead and spent it all, so that’s their problem, not yours. They bailed out criminal banks and left the public high and dry in the 2008 Financial Crisis. This time they can bail out Social Security and let the bankers sell their yachts.
Or imagine you’re among the working poor, surviving on minimum wage and food stamps. You’ve got two jobs, two adorable children who eat like horses and constantly outgrow their clothes. They’re starting to beg for cell phones that you can’t afford. Their biological father who abandoned you seven years ago is in prison again on drug charges. Are you apt to vote for a politician who promises to take away your food stamps as he votes to raise congressional salaries and spend billions on foreign wars?
Not so much.
The thing is, voters in similar circumstances are in the majority these days because the FED controls money in a way that’s designed to shrink the middle class and swell the poor. It’s what wealthy narcissists have done throughout history and plan to continue doing as soon as this annoying little democracy experiment is over.
This reality explains why Democrats and Republicans in DC keep raising the debt ceiling and spending the next generation’s money before it’s earned. Any suggestion of living within our means as a Nation is empty rhetoric. Nobody in DC has the slightest intention of doing the logical thing, the politically suicidal thing, the only thing that would save US democracy from the economic collapse engineered to usher in the World Economic Forum’s Marxist Reset.
We have to face the substance of our dilemma. There are no fiscal conservatives in DC on either side of the aisle. There can’t be. A fiscal conservative couldn’t survive one round of re-election.
In DC there are only hopes that our insanely debt-based economy will survive despite unlimited spending, higher taxes, and never-ending dollar dilution (via deliberate synthetic inflation).
It used to be hard to believe this, but now we know that some folks in DC, mostly on the far left it seems, sincerely hope that the US economy will crash and burn to usher in the WEF’s “reset” and a “new world order” of virtue-signaling totalitarianism with Central Bank Digital Currency micro-managing everyone’s spending, savings, and political commenting on TV, the internet, and “private” email.
“Dear Mom, In my last email I was just kidding about the president having dementia. I WAS JUST KIDDING !!! He’s so handsome and wise with that orange hair like his wonderful president father had years ago. By the way, can you loan me a thousand dollars? My digital paycheck didn’t come through after that last email. I’m so sorry I said that, Mom, and I didn’t mean any of it. I was just joking. I thought AI’s could tell when someone’s just kidding.”
Despite the circling debt vultures of the WEF, I’m still irrationally optimistic as usual. I think the elected officials in DC would totally stop their toxic borrowing and spending if only the majority of us voters on both sides of the brainless, idiotic, useless political divide could just take a minute to grasp the disease model of US economics…
Hyperinflation is like advanced Type 2 Diabetes where the disease has already destroyed the patient’s blood vessels causing serious problems like myocardial infarction, renal failure, blindness, dementia, and malodorous gangrenous diabetic ulcers requiring limb amputation. Too gruesome, I’m sorry, but I’m a retired pathologist (smiley face).
And I’m trying to believe that the US economy isn’t terminal, that we only have “significant” inflation and “unprecedented” debt, analogous to early Type 2 diabetes.
So close your eyes and click your heels with Dorothy, Toto, and me as we try to have hope…
I’m hoping the US voter is like the informed patient with early diabetes who has found a doctor that understands the cause of Type 2 diabetes and knows how to reverse it with a ketogenic lifestyle.
That is, at the symptomatic level, I’m hoping the US economy only has reversible inflation and we’re not heading into irreversible terminal hyperinflation. Similarly, at the etiologic level, I’m hoping the US still has reversible debt rather than irreversible terminal debt that will financially end us as a democratic Nation of voters.
“Wake up, Dorothy.”
An informed functional medicine doctor tries to persuade the patient to make tough lifestyle choices that reverse the cause of a disease.
As you know, the cause of Type 2 diabetes is virtually always a diet that’s so rich in complex and simple carbohydrates that vital proteins throughout the body become sugar-coated (glycated) and less than worthless, while the body’s cells become insensitive to the brave molecule INSULIN as she struggles at the cells’ gates to shove the toxic levels of sugar (glucose) out of the bloodstream and into the cells for immediate use and long-term storage as fat.
“Good luck with that in the United States of Sugar.”
A functional medicine doctor is usually not an MD. Most docs practicing functional medicine have avoided the indoctrination of the MD “education” treadmill. That failed teaching system is dominated by drug companies that control the information flow at med schools as they bribe MDs from med school to professional practice… all the way up to the FDA which is largely funded by drug companies now.
As best I can tell, the underlying cause of systemic corruption in the US is dishonesty stemming from the anti-spiritual cult of “scientific” materialism, an atheistic worldview assumption that cannot be tested but only accepted or rejected subjectively. And yet it poses as the foundation of modern science.
“Scientific” materialism, as best I can tell, is the most successful cult-level groupthink worldview on Earth.
Like modern “journalists” who are taught in school that “journalists are supposed to be political liberals,” scientists are programmed from Grade 1 to devote themselves to “scientific” materialism above all else.
Just to be clear, “scientific” materialism is a childish religious dogma that dictates a strange belief: “The universe and anything beyond are mindless at the core, composed only of unconscious matter and energy. Tap, tap, tap, no erases, no black magic.”
Sadly, in modern times, humanity has this pessimistic, depressing, untestable, faith-based assumption dominating our search for objective truth. And suicide rates are climbing because humans need meaning and purpose.
Believe in materialism if you like, but please try to be honest with yourself and admit that it’s purely a matter of opinion, not part of “settled science,” assuming “settled science” is a valid concept, which is debatable when you consider the possibility that we’re living in a cosmic holo-physical simulation.
“Scientific” materialism simply cannot be tested in a laboratory, let alone proven by the pseudoscientific fairytales that dominate scientific discussions now and are based on fossil record speculation, the epigenetic micro-evolution of finches, the nearly human genome and physical appearance of Chimpanzees, or the possibly inbred skeletal remains of “cavemen” who were almost certainly struggling to survive one of Earth’s periodic global cataclysms and/or one of our planet’s unimaginably long and dominant Ice Ages.
Yes, mainstream science currently tells us that modern humans have spent 100% of our existence in an Ice Age that began 2.6 million years ago and continues to this day. We are living in this Ice Age now. To keep the public confused, however, the brief “warm” periods within this gigantic Ice Age are called “Interglacial Periods” and the colder parts of our current Ice Age are commonly referred to as “Ice Ages.” So the term Ice Age has two confusing meanings like the term “brick” in the Tower of Babel story.
If we focus on the last 400,000 years which includes the moment when modern humans magically appeared with unbelievably complex reams of new genetic code that separate us from Apes, here’s a temperature graph of that time period:
Note that 32 degrees Fahrenheit is the freezing point of water, so it makes sense to divide the mini-Ice Ages (glacial periods) from the warm interglacial periods at about 30 degrees as shown in the right margin of this nice graph. The warm interglacial periods last only 10,000 to 30,000 years and occur within the context of our currently ongoing “true Ice Age” of 2.6 million years. The cold glacial periods, also confusingly called “Ice Ages” or “mini-Ice Ages” dominate human history on Earth which is speculated to be about 300,000 years, last I checked. These “mini Ice Ages” last from 70,000 to 90,000 years. Notice that our current political hot-potato temperatures are cooler than the average temperatures of several previous interglacial periods. This bit of mainstream science is not blasted on TV “news,” but you can read about it in Wikipedia, or at this interesting website where I found the above graph.
Earth’s historical temperatures gyrate wildly to and from the dominant freezing cycles, but for humans, this planet is usually far colder than Alaska except maybe in a narrow circumferential band encircling the equator. The existence of this narrow unfrozen zone is still debated.
So here’s my own “scientific” fairytale based on the mainstream’s temperature graph: The reason the human brain has “evolved” to be much larger and smarter than that of the Chimp, a species that is not found in the fossil records, interestingly, is that we’ve spent most of our geologic lives in extremely cold climates where very little vegetation can grow, especially not fruit trees or sugarcane. We were manly living near the coasts where temperatures are a tad warmer and our food source was almost entirely cold-water fish. Fish that can move well in extremely cold water must be loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA), the “antifreeze” of polar fish. That’s why human brains are absolutely loaded with Omega 3’s, and are known to malfunction without a diet that’s rich in cold-water fish (or Omega 3 supplements). Most of us can make some omega-3’s from vegan sources like flaxseed oil as long as you don’t carry the genetic SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) that renders that biochemical conversion pathway less effective. (I’ve got that SNP.)
Humans are Ice People. We may have landed in Africa, but our species has spent most of its existence, most of its adaptive eons on a frozen planet with very little food, mainly cold-water fish. We did not spend nearly as much time adapting to a warm, carbohydrate-rich plant favorable climate like we’re enjoying now. Therefore our metabolism is not well adapted to a high-carbohydrate diet. Since we’ve learned to refine sugar, it’s literally killing us.
But I digress.
Common sense tells us that without a compelling worldview-level reason to be honest, most people will lie, cheat and steal. Why wouldn’t we if it’s an amoral, mindless universe? And from the perspective of “scientific” materialism the universe seems to be entirely amoral with most of Earth’s mammals living dishonest, amoral lives, sneaking around in whimsically artistic camouflage provided by “mindless” nature as they hide from predators or hunt prey.
And yet science’s only route to truth in every field depends entirely upon honesty and objective insight. Honesty and objectivity must rule every step of scientific inquiry and every step of analysis, peer review, and publishing.
This insight is so glaringly obvious to everyone alive that many anti-spiritual scientists place honesty at the top of their own personal scientific identity despite the perceived “mindless nature of reality” that invites them to act like the other species and “win at all costs” in every situation, including the academic realm of job security ruled by the first law of academic life: “Publish or Perish.”
That’s why every honest anti-spiritual scientist deserves special respect and appreciation from people of all pro-spiritual faiths. Without these sterling individuals, true science could not exist today. Without their moral forebears, many of whom were spiritually oriented as it turns out, science would never have emerged in the first place.
Honest anti-spiritual scientists are like Earth’s many spiritual people who don’t believe in God or in an afterlife with rewards and punishments but still strive to do what’s right, compelled by wisdom, common sense, and compassion. Many Buddhists fall into this category, I’ve heard. In my opinion, God appreciates these people no end because they’re like God. Think about it, God always does what’s right out of compassion and wisdom, not because he/she/they believe in a higher power who will reward good behavior and punish evil deeds.
But honest scientists are not the dominant force in medical science at the National level these days. Drug companies run things there bringing us the illogical FDA decisions of recent times. For anyone who reads nonfiction in their spare time, the corruption of the FDA is as obvious as the existence of UFOs.
So for those with Type 2 Diabetes, an old-school MD may be the only doc in town who can put a Band-Aid on the problem by prescribing life-saving insulin injections. You’ll still be sick, but you’ll be strong enough to hunt down a functional doctor who likely won’t have the credentials to write insulin prescriptions but will be “allowed” to teach you how to reverse your disease at the causal level. Eventually, if you’re not too far advanced in the disease process, you won’t need insulin injection anymore. It’s happening with good regularity these days.
And personally, I hope you find a functional medicine practitioner with a pro-spiritual worldview that demands honesty, rather than just suggesting it politely. If near-death experiences mean anything, we will all someday regret the hurtful lies we’ve told. It’s not that I think we’ll be punished by God, I doubt that. But if we’re all good people visiting this limited physical realm from a truer Reality as I suspect, we’ll feel horrible about hurting other people because of who they really are and who we really are back home.
As I’ve said before, most MD’s don’t keep up with the medical literature because they’re too busy. Many try, but few succeed. Instead, MD’s tend to rely heavily on drug reps to bring them a verbal synopsis of the latest “papers of significance,” which are pharma-funded studies that show a specific relative-risk analysis favoring the company’s newest drugs. “Relative risk” is a common tool that pharma uses to grossly exaggerate the effectiveness of their drugs. Statins are the poster child of this madness. MD’s drink the cool aid because relative risk is a complex statistical thing that most MD’s are too busy to study, understand, and critically apply to the small print of pharma’s medical paper parade.
That’s not to say that drug companies have all been evil in the past or are all bad today. Clearly they’ve accomplished some great things and will likely come up with more genuinely wonderful breakthroughs as science matures. But drug companies are like everything else, given too much power they become corrupt, amoral, and destructive. For example, today they seem bent on sabotaging their toughest competition, functional medicine, labeling those who target the causes (rather than just the signs and symptoms) of disease “pseudoscience.”
MD’s still tend to think that functional medicine is pseudoscience. It’s not that they’ve read the relevant literature and developed an informed opinion, who has time for that? Instead the local standard of care tends to reject anything that might threaten the income of a drug company, and MD’s fall in line with groupthink. Stray from the “standard of care” and you’ll lose your job and possibly your medical license.
On top of that, it seems that MD’s tend to resent practitioners who deliver medical care without having spent the huge number of years they were forced to suffer through in education and training. It doesn’t seem remotely reasonable or in any way fair to the MD.
Predictably, old-school MDs mainly treat the signs of Type 2 diabetes (elevated fasting blood sugar and hemoglobin A1C) with insulin injections and the advice to “lose weight” on a traditional diet that, unlike ketogenic diets, makes a person chronically hungry due to the high carb content.
Carbs => hunger.
Inconveniently for drug companies, though, insulin was intelligently designed by “a spirit vastly superior to that of man” (as Einstein put it), to drive glucose into fat cells (lipocytes). And following the same genius logic that “accidentally” permeates nature, insulin is released mainly in response to carbohydrates, especially sugars.
If we severely cut down on carbs, we’ve eliminated the root cause of insulin spikes and thereby we can prevent Type 2 Diabetes, reverse “prediabetes,” and even reverse early Type 2 diabetes.
This is becoming so obvious now that even a few old-school MD’s are catching on.
Still, the average MD hopes that a drug company will develop an effective weight-loss and anti-diabetes pill that doesn’t have intolerable known side effects. They’ve got Metformin (Glucophage) now, but they want something more effective, anything but frustrating, lengthy lifestyle discussions that eat up their time and reduce their income. And it’s sort of understandable, I guess, because most MDs live from paycheck to paycheck. They merely spend a lot more money than average in the process of supporting their lifestyles. It’s human nature.
You may remember how MD’s were badly misled by the drug company’s deceptive “education” campaign a decade or two ago when Big Pharma promoted “non-addictive prescription opiates.” What a lie. The thousands of lives ruined and lost as a result of this ought to have awakened the MD’s to their own blindness and gullibility. But I see little evidence that they distrust drug companies at all now. Even the maelstrom of lies, corruption, and anti-logic that drove the insane National COVID response went right over most MDs heads (with a few notable, brilliant, and brave exceptions who were banned from the major woke-Marxist social media outlets).
Anyway, the old-school approach to Type 2 Diabetes is an enlightening model for understanding the FED’s approach to inflation and the National Debt. Ultimately, the FED and its crew of banks can only battle the signs and symptoms of inflation, not the underlying cause, because The Federal Reserve System is the ultimate cause of our impending economic train wreck here in the US.
The native insulin that your islets make is like the Earth’s most traditional money, gold. Digging more gold out of the ground requires immense physical work. That fact keeps the supply and demand for gold at a balance dictated by natural forces beyond manipulation. (If gold today didn’t have a futures market, it would be used to judge the “price” or value of the dollar, rather than the other way around. Instead we have price manipulation made easy for wealthy nations as they keep the price of gold down and buy bullion by the metric ton with plans of dethroning the US dollar from World Reserve Currency status.)
The synthetic, extraneous insulin that drug companies make is like the synthetic, legally counterfeited dollars that the FED churns out by adding ones and zeros to a spreadsheet on a computer terminal.
Like the old-school MD’s who inject synthetic insulin into a patient’s circulation, the FED’s pet commercial banks inject the FED’s synthetic US dollars into global circulation by lending it to the US Federal Government in exchange for IOU’s with fancy names (like Treasury Bills, Treasury Notes, Treasury Bonds, Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS), Floating Rate Notes (FRNs), Federal Financing Bank (FFB) securities, etc.).
We may hear tepid warnings from the FED about the unsustainability of current debt and the risk of hyperinflation that it brings, but just as the drug companies can’t survive in a paradigm of disease prevention, the FED can’t exist in a system designed to prevent inflation at the causal level by ending the FED’s interest rate manipulation and ending the FED’s production of synthetic (legally counterfeit) dollars (that are loaned to Congress for their drunken spending spree).
A lifestyle of eating so many carbohydrates that you develop insulin insensitivity and need synthetic insulin injections to stay alive is like the Nation’s lifestyle of borrowing so much money that we now need the FED to create synthetic money and inject it into our economic system so congress can continue living beyond its means until the disease runs it course and kills the country financially.
The final death of the economy can be either hyperinflation (not enough insulin, so the patient goes into diabetic keto-acidosis) or economic depression (so much synthetic insulin injected that the patient’s glucose levels drops to fatal levels).
In either case, the underlying cause is the same: toxic, chronically elevated debt made possible by the FED (analogous to a lifestyle of eating too many carbohydrates which chronically elevate and spike blood glucose levels causing insulin insensitivity which gradually gets worse and worse until you have type 2 diabetes and need insulin injections).
“Just give her the shoes, Dorothy.”
Toxic debt and inflation in the US are caused by:
1.) the legal fraud we call fractional reserve banking that allows all banks to hold only a small portion of the cash they receive while loaning out the rest. Worse yet, on March 26, 2020, that small reserve percentage was reduced to zero in the US. It’s insane.
2.) the FED itself is the primary cause of toxic US National debt and inflation.
The FED is a “bank” that creates money out of thin air, then loans this toxic, synthetic, legally counterfeited fiat “money” to the US Federal Government through IOU dealers and pet commercial banks, (some of which are shareholder-type “owners” of the FED). This transforms the US Government and the people into debt slaves. Simple as that, despite any government economist’s word-salad explanation to make it all seem rational, safe, fair, and normal.
The loans that the FED “gives” to the US government are made convoluted in order to prevent widespread understanding of the process, plus they’re burred in euphemism and unfamiliar large words to make the details difficult to remember.
From top to bottom, the system of global central banking was intelligently designed by brilliant sociopaths to make generational theft invisible to the public while appearing rational to government economists.
As a result, in the US the middle class shrinks and the poor swell in numbers. Most women in the US, for example, have lost the option to work full time at home raising kids, they MUST work outside the home to avoid bankruptcy and homelessness. The mainstream can sugarcoat it in “you-go-girl” verbiage, make it politically incorrect to mention at all, but it still reflects the FED’s constant theft of dollar value from the people.
These “banksters” use pretty words like, “the US government issued 500 billion in Treasuries.” It sounds sophisticated and vague. But in plain English it means, “The US has again borrowed 500 billion dollars from future generations. Most of the borrowed dollars were legally counterfeited out of thin air by the FED and loaned indirectly via commercial banks to the US Government. Your paycheck and savings have just been diluted again by a legalized white-collar criminal organization that owns and runs the US monetary system.”
But what’s so bad about that?
Your grandchildren won’t be able to make the interest payments on the National debt, let alone pay off the principal they will owe. These children of ours will be forced as a Nation to declare bankruptcy and suffer economic collapse, widespread starvation and the final takeover of the USA by tyrants, probably either the stakeholders of the World Economic Forum or the Chinese Communist Party itself. Maybe both, since they’re bedfellows at heart and purpose.
If and when this happens, hopefully the Woke people who openly claim to hate democracy and capitalism these days will vote their tyrants into power peacefully so the whole thing will be bloodless rather than a WW III with nukes and lab-grown racist mRNA bioweapons made in foreign labs at US taxpayer’s expense through FDA grants.
This debt crisis is what the World Economic Forum is counting on. When economic collapse becomes undeniable to the press, the WEF hopes to “rescue” the US with a global version of CBDC (central bank digital currency) that will give them unprecedented control of everyone’s money. They will outlaw gold, Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. With CBDC as the only legal money, the WEF stakeholders intend to rule benevolently over all surviving peons. They hope we will all be happy slaves who own nothing but feel thankful to them for saving us from the “failed” experiment of democracy and free-trade capitalism. They hope we will all quietly serve the hyper-wealthy again, as per the historic norm on this blue planet.
But until then, there’s hope of getting the message out, making it simpler, and helping voters remember the details through repetition. (There’s no other way to remember complex things but periodic reputation of the details.) So here’s what’s really going on with US debt…
“Toto, did you pee on my ruby slippers?”
Through several convoluted steps, the FED’s synthetically created US dollars make their way into circulation via the FED’s pet commercial banks, causing the buying power of citizen’s wages and their savings to plummet decade after decade. This is because dollars becomes more numerous when the FED counterfeits them, and the natural law of supply-and-demand reduces the dollar’s value (its buying power) as illustrated in the official historic graph below (from the Bureau of Labor Statistics).
No matter which political party appears to control the government, this theft of value has gone on since 1913 when the FED was secretly created and thrust upon an American public who had long rejected the world banker’s attempts to cram a central bank down the US voters’ throats. Voters understood the economy back then.
In the upper left corner of the graph (1913) via deceitful language and secrecy, the world bankers finally slid a scheme past the US voters, and “The Federal Reserve System,” was born with a dishonest title that avoids an appropriate name like “Voldemort” which means “the flight of death,” or in what I imagine might be the WEF stakeholder’s affectionate terms: “The Blood-sucking Destroyer of Nations.”
While US citizens’ buying power went down due to the FED’s deliberate inflation rate of “only” 2% (as in, relax, we’ll only rob you slowly), the overall wealth of elite bankers went from billions to many trillions.
Incidentally, these money-smart, morality deficient world bankers avoid losing their own personal buying power to inflation by spending their dollars on true assets that cannot be created out of thin air, like farmland, mines, oil fields, famous old art work, physical gold bars, and island resorts designed to entrap and control each and every politician.
Decades ago, I remember reading about a practice available to the FED that we now call “buying federal debt” with legally-counterfeited money. The author shunned and shamed the idea as a ridiculously dangerous last-ditch effort to survive, made only by struggling “third-world” countries to stay afloat before inevitably sinking into violent chaos and political revolution. The idea that a country’s central bank would loan funny money to its government was a shady and unthinkable practice that the US government would never be stupid, corrupt and desperate enough to do.
Times have changed.
Now we’re doing it with enthusiasm and have been for so long it’s become unsustainable, even in the eyes of the FED Chairman himself. And like a diet too rich in carbohydrates that creates insulin insensitivity requiring injections of more and more synthetic insulin to keep the patient alive and always getting sicker, the FED must now inject more and more synthetic dollars into the veins of the US economy to keep it alive and always getting sicker under the weight of chronically growing debt.
“There’s no place like… What now?”
A patient with early Type 2 diabetes can go to an average old-school MD (one of the FED’s pet banks) and get insulin to confront the disease at a superficial level. This MD will admit that “controlling blood glucose carefully with insulin injections” may slow the progression of the disease but it won’t reverse it. You will eventually get sicker and sicker because the mainstream dogma tells MD’s that your disease is a “chronically progressive disease” that can’t be stopped.
Or a patient who knows the truth (that early Type 2 diabetes is preventable and reversible) can eliminate the cause of the disease (analogous to eliminating the FED’s toxic debt machine), go to a good functional medicine doc, face the ugly truth about carbohydrates and insulin, and begin a ketogenic lifestyle to reverse disease progression (which is like ending the FED so it can’t keep stealing our money by synthesizing counterfeit trillions out of thin air [QE] and manipulating free-market interest rates).
Sorry if there’s too much redundancy in this piece, but I think repetition helps us remember, and besides, I had to get this post out already so I can finish a shot sf story I’m writing for you.
Please forward this article to a loved one or friend. You might add decades to somebody’s life or even flap the proverbial butterfly wing that eventually creates a bipartisan voter storm big enough to talk the US government down from the ledge of debt created by the FED and congress.
And always consult your physician before making any changes in you medications or any dietary or other major lifestyle changes.
