Many people ask why they need to take vitamins and minerals instead of just acquiring them simply from pure, organic whole foods instead. Unfortunately, the times have changed, and the quality of food has deteriorated. Among the reasons are depleted soil, low nutrient crops, modern fertilizers that do not supply enough trace elements and food processing. Added to that is the use of pesticides, herbicides and hormones in our vegetables, meats, fish, and poultry. Long distance transportation of many foods further diminishes their nutritional content. Additionally, some of the supplements recommended help to expedite the elimination of toxins.
The simple truth is that you can’t always get everything you need from your diet as your body works hard to fight your daily toxic burden, overcome genetics, recover from chronic stress and reduce inflammation. Supplements are needed today to help offset the depleted and toxic food supply, improper diets and eating habits. Also, food supplements can be used to enhance the stress response, and balance body chemistry in very specific ways. Even if your diet did provide everything your body requires, you might not be absorbing those nutrients if you have a leaky gut or weak digestion.
Targeted supplements are important to help rebuild and correct your body chemistry
Supplements can also help remove all toxic metals easily, quickly, deeply and without the need for chelating agents and other less safe methods. Food supplements are an absolute necessity to science; all supplements are chosen carefully based mainly on a properly performed hair analysis.
When using supplements, it is important to discuss which brand, what dose, when to take it, how long to take it and when to evaluate whether it’s working. Every three to four months, it is important to re-test. As your body shifts and starts trying to balance itself, re-testing will show what changes are needed in the diet, the lifestyle, and the supplement program. However, there are some supplements that I believe that everyone needs indefinitely.
Anyone can follow the basic nutrition and detoxification recommendations for his or her benefit. In fact, these alone can be very powerful in helping the body to heal, but as a general rule, some supplements are required to achieve the best results. The supplements you will use are very specific in doses and combinations of nutrients which is difficult to achieve using food.
