Treat Supplements Like Medicine

In certain cases, supplements can be a valuable prescription as part of a full-spectrum program.  Thus supplements may be recommended as part of your individualized program.  But, just because supplements are available without a doctor’s prescription, doesn’t mean that you should take them without medical supervision.  We must face the fact that there are challenges involved in selecting and using supplements.  As a practical matter, supplements aren’t required to undergo the same rigor in manufacturing and testing for effectiveness, interactions, and side effects that medications go through.  Thus, we treat supplements like medicine and involve your doctor, so that you get the best care available.
