Do you ever find it interesting that the medical establishment, an organization that is in the business of getting us healthy, recommend diet, exercise and nutrition only after prescriptions are suggested? Traditionally around the world, diet is always one of the first stops on the healthy journey, and supplementing the diet just seems to make better sense in those regions of the world. To me, diet, exercise and sleep as well as a positive attitude and healthy living are the most vital part of adding to our quality and quantity of life.
The last time I looked, a deficiency in our bodies usually occurs because the foods being consumed are of very little nutritional value and or the individual is stressed out. Many times the digestive systems are compromised, and it could also be a lack of nutrients the body is needing to function properly. The daily things we should be doing every day adds to our health, but they are the things we usually cut corners on. These things like good food, great supplements, exercise, sleep and a great positive attitude, things we should want to do are seriously ignored. I am sometimes amazed that people actually think they have drug deficiencies and have convinced themselves of this. I am not sure of a single study where a deficiency is created from not having your drugs, a withdrawal symptom when you are out of it, maybe.
I think it all comes down to getting back to basics, keeping it simple, consistent and healthy!
