As a holistic healthcare provider, my approach is to treat the whole person and get to the root cause of dysfunction to get my patients better. This complex practice realizes that our body systems all work together and are affected by the food we eat, the toxins we encounter and the stress we face.
The supplements I carry are chosen based on their effectiveness to improve my patient’s health and in many cases change important lab values. They are chosen based on their purity, label claim and efficacy. The professional lines of products we carry in the office and on our virtual storefront are formulated at the strength needed to make the changes needed in my patient’s health.
When patients take their chances in retail, it increases the probability that their treatment plan will not have the outcome we are looking for. Not all of retail is bad, however many lines use poor raw material selection and dosing that is below the needed therapeutic levels.
In a recent 2013 study of Vitamin D by the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers who tested vitamin D pills sold in stores found they contained from 9% to 146% of the doses listed on labels. Though none of the pills was likely to be dangerous, (in this case) some contained too little of the vitamin to effectively treat someone with a deficiency.
As an expert in nutrition, part of my role is to research companies and bring in the best products from only the top physician lines. The product lines we use here are researched to be the highest potency and using only the best raw materials. They are tested both in house by the manufacturer and using 3rd party validation.
The treatment plan and product combinations we use are structured to limit any reactions they could have when taken together. When patients self-medicate, the possibility of a reaction increases. We do all of this to ensure the best patient outcomes and to ensure your safety.
Proper supplementation takes collaboration and teamwork from the doctor and patient for the best outcome. Thank you for your cooperation and choosing to join me on this path of wellness.
