Another common scenario I see is over supplementation. Heeding too much of the “take this, take that” advice can lead to one walking through my door with a bag overflowing with supplements. Supplements are excellent to take when deficient or helping the body to regain balance, but ultimately we are creatures that were created with mouths – openings in our face with which food was meant to enter, be digested, absorbed, assimilated, and nourish our body for the promotion of health.
That is why I am recommending you read what has recently been written by a colleague of mine, Dr. Melanie Deschatelets, who I know, respect, and agree with. She’s pared the supplement controversy down to the top 3 that she would recommend if one were to “self-supplement” in her Minimalist Guide to Supplements; Top 3 You Can’t Get From Food.
Read for yourself, and enjoy!
