In today’s world, it is nearly impossible to obtain all the necessary nutrients your body needs from food alone. Supplements provide the missing link between what is necessary for optimal health and what is missing from our food supply. Supplements are an important part of a healing protocol, but should never be the first step. Purchasing supplements can be a waste of money if you haven't taken the time and effort to identify which supplements your body truly needs. Knowing which supplements are necessary to improve your health is where the professional advice of a FDN® practitioner comes into play. I tailor supplementation to each individual in order to address specific healing opportunities.
3 basic functions of supplements:
- These supplements replace something that is currently missing in the body or lacking in production. An example might include digestive enzymes.
- These supplements stimulate organs, glands and systems in the body to do their jobs. An example might include vitamins and minerals.
- Support is an important function not to be overlooked. Supplements that provide support are short-term aids to the body while function is being restored. An example is adrenal glandular supplements which help the body respond to stress.
FDN's are not supplement salespeople! I never suggest anything that is not indicated in my individual assessments. I do utilize supplements to support the changes that need to happen. Once your health is restored, many supplements will no longer be needed and I will work closely with you to monitor your changing needs.
