The only side effect of our nontoxic natural medicine is feeling better.

Nutritional Supplementation

Nutritional, intravenous therapies of vitamins and minerals replenish those lost in chronic digestive disorders as well as macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, chronic fatigue syndrome, cancer, and candida to mention a few. This therapy is cost effective, and beneficial to the body without the side effects of prescription drugs.

Objection #1 – “Supplements are unproven without scientific evidence.”

This is simply not true. Every year, thousands of studies are published on the use of vitamins, minerals, and other supplements in the prevention and treatment of disease.

There are textbooks and periodicals on this subject, and thousands of well-referenced books. Our own government’s National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements maintains a huge database of bibliographical citations and abstracts from published international scientific literature on supplements. And if you search the U.S. National Library of Medicine’s website, you’ll find tens of thousands of abstracts on nutritional supplements.

Objection #2 – “Using supplements is dangerous.”

Supplements are exceptionally safe – in fact, they’re infinitely safer than prescription drugs. In a typical year, more than 100,000 Americans die of adverse effects from medications used exactly as prescribed.

Guess how many die from “dangerous” supplements? Zero.

Objection #3 – “If supplements work so well, why aren’t all doctors using them?”

Just because conventional physicians aren’t widely using supplements doesn’t mean they aren’t effective. Doctors are trained in the use of pharmaceuticals, not nutrients, so many of them are unaware of the benefits of supplements. Others are simply biased against them.

Then there’s the profit factor.

Vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, and anything else found in nature cannot be patented. It they could be patented, they’d have been claimed by the pharmaceutical industry and marketed as expensive drugs long, long ago. Because natural therapies have no patent protection, there is no financial incentive for them to be picked up by the drug companies – so they never make it into conventional medicine.

Objection #4 – “You get all the nutrients you need from a good diet.”

The most recent National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey reveals that most Americans are deficient in one or more essential nutrients. Daily multivitamin and mineral supplements engender health by helping to protect against nutritional deficiencies. Targeted supplements are used in therapeutic doses to treat specific health conditions.

Remember: Although it may be reassuring to have your physician’s approval, you don’t need his or her permission for using supplements. Your health is your responsibility, and you control what goes into your body.
