“I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. “

I know what your thinking.  Food…is medicine – literally?


Yes – thanks to TMedPharma.

I was skeptical too.  Food in a little pill is like something you see is a science fiction movie.

“Medical foods” are real though, I’m am REALLY impressed.

download-1“Medical Foods” is a unique category of FDA regulated products that meet the distinctive nutritional requirements or metabolic deficiencies of a particular disease state.. Theramine® is in this category, and it is specifically formulated to manage the pain and inflammation of specific disease states, go beyond simple dietary interventions, and are specifically formulated to meet the distinctive nutritional requirements of a specific disease that cannot be met with a simple dietary shift.



That means…that this stuff is WAY more effective than your everyday nutritional supplement.

Because of my crazy medical circumstances, my nutritional needs often don’t fit the bill for a nutritional supplement I get at the pharmacy or at the grocery store.   Increased nutritional requirements can be the result of inadequate ingestion of nutrients, malabsorption, or impaired metabolism, and over the counter supplements can’t really make things better.  However, by using an FDA-regulated therapeutic product class known as Medical Foods, there is actually hope.

Sure you can take prescription drugs to help manage these symptoms, but here’s the problem – even though they are widely used by both physicians and patients and can be a very important component in the treatment of disease, they don’t address the nutritional requirements of a disease – and as the saying goes, you are what you eat.  Even worse, the standard medicines to treat these diseases can come with nasty side effects. 

Okay, so a nutritional supplement doesn’t address the medical part, and the medicine doesn’t address the nutritional part. So what do you you to deal with both?

Medical foods are the answer here – they’re safe, effective. And are the only thing out there that address both sides of the coin. IT’s the best way to holistically manage your health.  These “medical foods” can help with managing pain, sleep, and cognitive disorders without many of the risks associated with pharmaceutical drugs. 


That is why I am so excited that I discovered TMed Pharma medical foods.  It’s so overwhelming trying to manage nutrition, holistic supplements, and dietary needs, while also managing medical needs and medications.  Sometimes, I feel like I’m two different people.  TMEd Pharma offers several solutions.  Their pill Theramine is for pain management, as is Trepadone and Percura.  For sleep management, there are GABAdone and Sentra PM.  You can view all of the specific information on their website at

My Experience…


I got to try Theramine – for the dietary management of chronic pain disorders for three months to see if this had any affect on my digestion.  I also got to try Sentra AM – for the dietary management of chronic fatigue and cognitive function, and Sentra PM – for the dietary management of chronic sleep disorders. Because I hardly absorb anything with my gastrointestinal issues, I was skeptical, but after being extremely diligent about taking these medical foods, I was really happily impressed with how well they worked.  Imagine – a medicine staying true to their claims on the back of the bottle. It’s medicine, its food…and I can feel good that I’m holistically taking care of my body. 

Definitely give these products a try. They’re safe, easy, and they work.
