Supplements are an important part of a healthy diet, especially since the Standard American diet is devoid of nutrients and high in processed and refined foods. But even if we ate an organic diet high in fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals, it would be very difficult to consume everything our body needs.  In a perfect world, we would be able to get all of our nutrients from food. However, our modern day soil is depleted of nutrients and food is usually picked before it is ripe. Additionally, most of our food is shipped from far away and stored for long periods of time. Lastly, we are exposed daily to toxins in our environment, and we need extra nutrients to combat the effects to our biochemistry.

While I believe that supplements are essential for optimal health, not all dietary supplements are created equal. There are more than 55,0000 supplements on the market in an unregulated industry. Many products have inadequate levels of important active ingredients, while others may contain harmful ingredients and chemicals that may or may not be printed on the label.  This contamination, substitution and false labeling is very risky for consumers, and it is imperative that you buy supplements form a reputable distributor. It is impossible to assess the effectiveness off alternative therapies if you are not taking the product that you think you are taking.  There are many companies that have in-house testing and use pure, natural products.  Many of these supplements are only sold to licensed health practitioners, for example, Thorne, Pure Encapsulations, Metagenics, Xymogen, Klaire, and Designs for Health.  It is worth the effort to purchase these alternative therapies from these types of companies to protect your health.

Therefore, we recommend only physician grade, tested supplements. After your assessment, recommendations will be made to benefit your health and help you reach your goals, and you can purchase supplements online through:  htps://
