Vitamin use can be extremely helpful when and if you know what you are doing. To just walk in a health food store after reading a book and buying their suggestions can ultimately end up in failure to produce the results you are seeking. When watching TV shows such as Dr. Oz because he has endorsed a particular vitamin, mineral or herb may not work on every body type. I have had many people stop in to buy the 100mg 7-Keto Dhea that has been touted to be so fabulous for losing weight only to hear complaints of feeling jittery, anxiety and inability to sleep. Believe me, it is not the only piece to weight-loss. If you do not work on what I call the base supplements that provide your energy, you will burn out quickly on something like dhea. Many become a little more confrontational or experience “road rage”.
Working with vitamins is a little more intricate. Reading article after article and then associating your symptoms with all their descriptions you start to relate to every affliction they list. You randomly self diagnose and take a trip to the health food store to purchase the 15 items you compared and related to on all those lists you were offered as the “best of the best”. What I find is that most of you are buying too many items that work on the same area. Too much or too little when it comes to dosages does the same thing. Many think okay, if this small amount gave me relief maybe a larger amount will help more. Most find that the original symptoms return instead the answer would have been to lower the amounts. They give up and complain that they spent a lot of money on supplements and they don’t work. If you would just put in the one more element and call to be muscle tested (even when you think you know a lot about taking supplements) you would improve so much faster without duplicating your efforts. Give me 3 months to improve your quality of life even if it is to reduce your fatigue level or intestinal problems. Hearing how many people take things such as Humira to reduce inflammation of all kinds is scary to me. Even I don’t muscle test myself and I have over 30 years experience.
