I am often asked what I think about nutritional supplements. As a doctor who specializes in a more ”natural” form of medicine, it is fair to say that the use of supplements is a significant part of my medical armamentarium. I use nutrition and directed supplementation in the care of my patients because I think that it is in their best interest. I believe that this approach is safer than conventional allopathic drugs. Certainly conventional drugs have a place in a comprehensive medical practice. But in contrast to the treatment options offered by a “regular” doctor, the approach to rectify errant metabolic processes with a food or supplement is generally safer in the long run, and more lasting.
