In a perfect world, almost none of the efforts to improve your health and longevity would be needed. Medications, Vitamins, Nutritional Supplements, perhaps even Hormone Restoration would be unnecessary. Of course, the perfect world does not exist. Man in his boundless efforts to improve nature, mostly fueled by greed, has contaminated our environment to the extreme. What we now harvest, drink, and breathe has so many toxins and harmful elements that alter our body’s processes, metabolism and overall function. The nutritional value of our processed foods has been so diminished, and replaced by these toxins, that this is one of the most destructive processes of the human body and our “Perfect World”.
Do we really need Hormone, Vitamin and Nutritional Supplementation to supply, replenish, repair, ward off disease states, and encourage longevity? Empathically, I say:
ABSOLUTELY YES, WE DO!
As with anything we put into our bodies these days, we need to be sure they are of the quality and purity to be effective. Otherwise we are just adding to our contaminant reservoir. Unfortunately a lot of these supplements are costly, and as inferred above, viewed as not necessary. If you want to succeed in your efforts to improve your health, feel the best you can, and prolong your healthful longevity, budgeting for these supplements is essential.
I do encourage and suggest the following:
- Eat organically grown foods as much as possible.
- Take the prescribed vitamin supplementation regularly, and take only Pharmaceutical Grade Vitamins.
- Eliminate plastic substances from your environment.
- Use ‘Paraben Free’ cosmetics, lotions, soaps.
We do not live in the Perfect World, but we can take steps proactively to fight the effects of our global contamination.
