I’ve come across a lot of people who use supplemental vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in hopes of improving their health.
On one hand, this is great, because I am a huge health advocate – I am pro anything which improves your quality of life.
On the other hand, what a lot of people don’t realise is that supplements CAN change our biochemistry. That’s what they’re supposed to do.
True, the effects aren’t as immediately potent as those derived from pharmaceuticals, but make no mistake; most supplements aren’t something to play with. They interact with receptors, bacteria, hormones and all the rest of it, the same way that medication does.
Now, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take them or that they’re bad for you.
What I AM saying though, to ensure your longterm health and safety is not at risk, you should be seeking the advice of an expert before embarking on your own journey down the supplement isles of your favourite health stores – or on amazon.
A nutritional therapist is able to professionally assess what you really need, not what you think you need. They will also be able to look at you holistically, taking into consideration lifestyle, dietary, medical history, genetic factors -even your financial situation comes into play.
Nutritional therapists also know about supplement formulas and ingredients, and can advise on brands which have the best quality ingredients & most suitable preparation for your individual situation.
I’ll be dedicating some posts this week about supplements, so if you or your loved ones are self prescribing supplements, make sure you check these out – especially if you want to know which supplement can make you feel like you’re experiencing psychotic episodes!

True like pharmaceuticals, most people tend to abuse nutrient supplements. Too much of anything is toxic!!
