Nutritional Supplements Q & A

Why would I need a nutritional supplement?

Common supplements include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and herbal products. Supplements are useful in filling in gaps in your diet. The team at The Miami Center for Holistic Healing can determine if you have nutritional deficiencies from a physical exam, review of your symptoms, and specific screening tests.

Deficiencies can affect your appearance, your energy, your immunity, and your overall health. Supplements calibrate your nutrient levels so your body functions more efficiently. The right types of supplements can help discourage cravings, help you lose weight, balance digestion, and optimize organ function.

Why do I need guidance when it comes to nutritional supplements?

Supplements are available without a prescription and aren’t regulated by any governmental bodies. They make claims on their labels, but you can’t be sure of their quality or purity. Lots of promotional material, rumors, and poor advice is also available on the internet. This makes choosing a supplement brand and type especially confusing.

Dr. Eklund can help you navigate the confusion that surrounds supplements. Not everyone needs to take supplements, so it’s important to meet with your provider to determine if these products may help you or if other interventions would be better to boost your health.

Some supplements can cause side effects, too, especially if taken together or combined with other medications. Dr. Eklund can guide you to take the supplements that benefit you and won’t cause harm or waste your money.
