Supplementation – Synthetic vs NaturalNatural therapies home photo

Supplements are everywhere. Self prescribing and buying over the counter supplements is not something that Noreen recommends.

Many supplements are manufactured synthetically with chemicals and do not come straight from their natural sources. These vitamins mimic how natural vitamins work in our bodies. Many of these lack very important co-factors for absorption and utilisation in the body because they are isolated compounds. These are not recognised in the body the same way that natural vitamins and minerals are which are found in FOODS.

Natural supplements are derived from WHOLE FOODS. These supplements contain other vitamins, enzymes and minerals that control the way the body recognizes, metabolizes and uses them to make what it needs. These are easily recognised by the body and able to be used immediately at the cellular level.


Brands That We Use

We only use products that we have tried ourselves and that our bodies have responded to:

Premier Research Labs, MRI, Nutramedix, Juice Plus.

Why Do We Need to Supplement

Even if you are eating a completely organic diet usually supplementation is still needed in some form. Unfortunately the soils we now grow in are not what they once were. Here in NZ our soils are very depleted in some essential minerals such as Selenium and Iodine.

The best way to know is whether you feel completely 100% vital, vibrant, healthy and free of all disease…

Of course eating a diet rich in organic vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, whole grains and fermented foods and fibre is vital…but we will put you on the right path when you come in.
