Food WheelA question we hear often is, “I don’t want to take supplements anymore, when can I get off of everything? Can’t I just eat right and not have to take supplements?”

Eating a well-balanced, whole, fresh, unprocessed diet will provide an abundant supply of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients… right?  Well, unfortunately not.

Even if you do eat the perfect diet, we are constantly bombarded by environmental stressors and toxins. Even the “good” food we have access to has most likely been grown in depleted soil, undergone extensive transport and storage, and has often times been genetically modified.  All of these things lead to a much less nutrient rich food supply.

Most of us are familiar with the concept of nutritional therapy to treat chronic or acute illness. For example juices or water fasts to cleanse, diets to lower blood pressure or cholesterol.

Using supplements, not as a treatment of illness, but as a tool to support existing health and wellness is a practice now popular in most health focused industries, but still a bit of a taboo to a large part of the population.

Utilizing professionals-only supplements in effective amounts can be the corner-stone of your overall health.  Why professionals-only?  Synthetic vitamins are processed in the body like a drug.  In fact, synthetic vitamins often do more harm than good.  Natural vitamins contain complete cofactors allowing your body to process them like food.

If you are wondering if the vitamins in your cabinet are worth taking, please read further about the important differences in synthetic vs natural supplementation here.

You may be looking for just the “basics” or a simple multivitamin, but that may mean a very different thing for your body than it does for your best friend who is ten years older than you.  It is best to make these decisions with the guidance of a trained professional.  In the long run, you will see more benefits utilizing someone
