#050: The Other Pill with Sarah Morgan, M.S.

Any type of drug can cause side effects in your body and birth control pills are no exception. Headaches, decrease in sex drive, weight gain, acne breakouts and fatigue are just some of the most common side effects from hormonal birth control and there are reasons for this.

Nutrient deficiencies caused by pharmacologic medications often create a host of unwanted symptoms. Although they occur reliably with onset of taking a new medication, most people are not counselled proactively about the need for targeted supplementation and fail to receive information about this issue when problems do occur. They remain in the dark, untreated and suffering.
