Quality, Potency and Purity matter when choosing to hand over your hard-earned income for supplements. The reasons people choose to take a supplement vary, and may include a recommendation from a friend, something they read online or heard about in the news, or a recommendation from a healthcare provider.

Aren't Supplements Unregulated?
This is an excellent question, and the answer is yes – and no. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates dietary supplements differently from medications. They regulate quality control and good manufacturing processes but do not ensure standardization of the active ingredients or efficacy. Supplements are regulated as a food, rather than a medication.
Ideally, nutrients should come from food. In instances where our body needs a boost or we have deficiencies caused by medications, medical treatments, dietary behaviors, etc. we may need temporary or long term supplementation. Because we have to rely on manufacturers to source high quality raw material, test for heavy metals, mold mycotoxins, potency, and residual chemicals used in the manufacturing process – it is important to purchase therapeutic quality supplements from vetted manufacturers found in the online dispensaries.
Much like medications, supplements can have contraindications (reasons for not taking them) or conflict with one another. Having a healthcare provider with access to the Natural Medicines Database is important to compare medications and supplements with one another, look for nutrient deficiencies caused by either medications or supplements, and create a customized plan for you. We have you covered, and can provide this to you at your appointment.
Testing = Data
We believe in having access to the tests you want to make informed decisions about your health. The purpose of testing is diagnostic – of course – but can also help you better understand how your body works, the role of genetics, and areas of your health that need improvement. Testing provides valuable data to help inform:
- Which foods to include or avoid
- Supplements needed to boost nutrient status
- Connection between nutrient status and pain, immune system, or osteoporosis
- Factors that influence inflammation or detoxification
- Validation for symptoms that don’t fall into a particular “diagnosis” and strategies to resolve them
… and so much more. We have numerous testing options available and we never charge a premium for tests – you pay wholesale prices every time.
Some Of The Companies We Work With
Order Labs Yourself
YES, that’s right. You can order labs yourself either because you are curious about some symptoms you have, or because your primary care provider will not order them. We believe very strongly that you have the right to know any information about your body that you deem necessary. We are here to provide guidance but ultimately the decision is yours alone. This service allows you to set up an account and order any conventional labs you wish to check such as Ferritin, or Iodine, A1c or Cholesterols. We can meet with you for an appointment to provide guidance on how to shore up any nutrient deficiencies with food and/or supplementation.
