Nutritional Supplements + Wellness Way Herbs
Take the Guesswork Out of Your Diet
We all have this in common, we need to eat every day to survive. Nutrition plans and dietary programs are all over the internet including the Keto, Paleo and Atkins diet; all offering a solution to everyone’s problems. While none of these plans are bad, it doesn’t mean that every nutrition plan is right for every person. So how do you know what you need to eat to feed your body? We recommend an anti-inflammatory diet, and these guidelines are important for everyone, but may also be used in combination with your food allergy issue, diabetic issues, or whatever you individually need.
When we look at your labs, our recommendations are different. Each person is different, and each person can also react differently to certain foods. You need to choose your nutrition based on your individual body. Here at The Wellness Way we test and then give our recommendations based on what your body is telling us is right for you.

Not All Supplements Are Created Equal. Quality over Quantity
With a huge demand for supplements across numerous pockets of the population, the market of manufacturers and suppliers continues to grow. Due to the growth of the market, sometimes shortcuts are taken. Nutritional supplements have an impact on the body. That is, after all, why people take them. Because of this, it is very important to know what is in your supplements as well as what isn’t. Dosage, contraindications, purity, and best timing to take supplements are all important factors to consider when using supplements.
Supplements are not regulated in the same way as other health products are. The standard held for these products isn’t “safe and effective,” it’s simply, “not harmful.” The concern comes, then, when these products are poorly manufactured, are taken in the wrong dosage or alongside other products they may interact with, or whether they are actually doing more harm to the body than good because the body doesn’t need the particular supplement being taken.
Sourcing of supplements is a huge factor in quality. Are they chemically produced in a lab, or from plants and other natural sources? Are those sources clean and pure, or are they conventionally farmed and possibly contaminated with numerous chemicals, all of which may be concentrated in a small tablet or capsule? We’ve all seen the huge bottles on the shelves of big box stores that look like a deal when compared to quality, bio-available, sources the body will easily use. Would you rather be paying for what your body is using, or what you are simply consuming only to flush out? Fillers and binders, or wholesome, nutrition?
Some vitamins and nutrients are water soluble and others fat soluble. It’s important to know the difference so that you aren’t taking in too much of a potentially good thing, only to make it harmful.
