Whether you believe in Global Warming, the need to ‘Go Green’, or other pro-environmental issues or even if you lean the other way and don’t believe that Miami will be under water in 10 years, does not matter here. What does matter and is agreed upon by 99.9% of the scientific world is the fact that our environment IS polluted and harmful. The air we breathe, the water we drink, all the foods we eat, the man-made materials we touch, microwave, the chemicals in cleaning products, hair shampoo, medications are among the list of thousands of materials that contaminate our world and us.
The nutritional, vitamin supplementation, antioxidant business has boomed into a multibillion dollar industry. There are thousands of products to choose from, and just as many businesses that will take your money and run! These nutritional additives are desperately needed by our bodies, but what ones? How do I know I can trust this product? Most of the supplements are not covered by health insurances, since insurance companies only pay for sickness. This can become quite costly……. A lot of dollars spent perhaps on something that you do not see or feel the results of.
Late night television has infomercial after infomercial. “Buy this product and get 2 free!” or “Guaranteed to melt the pounds right off!” or “These tablets are amazing, you will feel 20 years old again!” It goes on and on. Naturally most of these products are ‘snake oil’ and you should fall asleep watching these infomercials, one of the treatments for insomnia we utilize!
As with most anything, there are good supplements and there are ‘snake oil’ supplements. We are in the healthful business that is preventing illness, where good and appropriate supplements are most definitely needed. Our current environment can cause us to become ill or have other life altering things happen due to the lack of appropriate nutrition, vitamins, or other supplements that have been proven to be beneficial. We evaluate many products but only recommend those that are healthy and will perform as advertised.
There are products that will help you lose weight, age more gracefully, restore energy without harmful effects, or provide the required anti-oxidants our bodies sorely need to fight all the pollutants, i.e. free radicals, we encounter every day. There are approved vitamins and minerals that take the high road and help the body function healthfully, instead of taking the low road to bad health by not taking advantage of these vitamins and supplements. Yes, they may cost a few dollars, and in today’s financial troubles a few dollars is important. In the long run though, “At the end of the Day” when age 65 rolls around; you will want to feel healthy and alive, full of energy.
Yes, hormone balancing is the critical step, the one we cannot do without for good long term health. The supplements, vitamins, etc. that we recommend are the next step to prolonged good health. For example, did you know the body does not make Vitamin D or Calcium? They have to come from external sources. Yet both are needed for good bone health and many other things. They come from Supplements. I am not going to name all the additional products we recommend as they are various and individualized to each client’s situation of health. Be assured though, that what is recommended has been researched thoroughly and is worth it. They do work to promote good health, energy, weight loss, and all the other claims the late night infomercials repeatedly drum unto your head.
We recommend using nutritional & vitamin supplementation for the defense of, or the assault on your body from our environment, as well as hindering the inevitable process of aging. It takes work to be healthy and feel good at age 65 or so! The attack on us is real, and the products we use have been proven to be beneficial. I believe I am now going to research “Virgin Himalayan Salt Crystals”. Really! I have read that they are mined from the Himalayan Mountains and have been untouched by industrial civilization. They were frozen well before our pollutants had a chance to invade the salt. Salt being an essential part of our body, replenishing your body’s saline (salt content) with clean Himalayan salt crystals reportedly does miraculous things. We will see!
