This blog may upset some people but I'm here to address some hard questions that need to be asked sometimes.
First thing we need to talk about is where vitamins and supplements are a good thing. Vitamins are best used for times when the immune system needs a quick boost from a cold, flu, or bug that you can not seem to shake off.
You take your Vitamin C, your Zinc supplement, oregano oil capsule and many times you can kick that illness quicker and with less complications.
So now we know the good things, here are the 3 biggest problems I see over and over with regular vitamin and supplement use....
1. IT'S A TEMPORARY FIX FOR LONG-TERM HEALTH ISSUE...
First thing you are probably thinking is how is it temporary? When we need to take something every single day to maintain a "false" feeling of health, only to have the symptoms of disease return after stopping them, then we are covering symptoms.
How can you find out? Simply stop taking your supplement and see if the reason you started taking it, comes back. If it does you are covering symptoms of disease like prescription medications do, but not reaching the cause of the problem.
2. YOUR BODY ADAPTS AND GETS USE TO THEM, RESULTING IN LESS EFFECTIVENESS
What happens when you keep doing the exact same exercise over and over again? What happens when you keep using antibiotics over and over again? In both examples you stop getting the benefits of either, and the body builds a resistance and stops responding. The exact same thing happens with using the same supplements and vitamins over and over, day after day.
3. THE COST INVOLVED OF MONTHLY REFILLS (that are a lifetime thing)
Simple one here.....Correct the health issue and you do not need to DEPEND on supplements an vitamins.
Some examples of what I am talking about.....
Patient with 15 years of extreme gas production, indigestion and burping after every meal they eat. In her own words "I sound like a man belching non stop!"
Was on probiotics, was on digestive enzymes, was on dandelion tincture to aid digestion,
But after 6 months on the homeopathic medicine called Calcarea Carbonica 200CH, it has been GONE for over 4 years.
THIS IS THE TYPE OF EFFECT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HERE!
