Your diet is the major resource for your overall health and the “thing” that supplements are completing; supporting a deficiency within; or reinforcing and making whole.
Making dietary changes takes time and often our body needs the added support of supplementation of nutrients in which one is deficient due to factors of disease or illness, farming practices, toxicity, lifestyle etc.
In general supplements should not be looked at as the only way a body receives a nutrient, but as a support for the body’s systems to function fully and possibly heal and adapt to function reducing or eliminating the need for the added supplements in time.
Caution should be used as often supplements contain ingredients which may irritate an already inflamed and damaged gut lining and interfere with the healing process. Also many supplements contain synthetic forms which are often unrecognized by the body.
What we eat daily is such a vital component of our overall well-being. Foods which are minimally processed are key. Organic produce helps reduce toxic exposure. (See environmental working groups for a listing of the produce with highest and lowest amounts of toxins.) Pastured meats from animals raised without antibiotics are also beneficial and taste great too. Finding these types of foods may seem daunting.
