Supplement Guidance Q & A

What is supplement guidance?

Supplement guidance is a wellness service that helps you identify which supplements you should take according to your body's needs. 

Various nutrient deficiencies can slow down various body functions and affect your day-to-day well-being in a major way. By taking supplements, you can correct these deficiencies in the long term.

While you get most of the nutrients you need through a well-rounded diet, a dietary restriction or underlying health condition can cause a deficiency. Either you don’t consume enough of a given nutrient, or your body is unable to absorb it in adequate amounts. 

You can get vitamin injections to correct a deficiency or take supplements by mouth. Healthy Lifestyle Medicine offers daily supplements by Designs for Health® and Microbiome Labs.

How does supplement guidance work?

The team at Healthy Lifestyle Medicine performs an evaluation of your health and wellness to find out which supplements you should take regularly. They examine your health history and ask about any current symptoms or ongoing concerns. 

Various nutrients have unique sets of benefits, and the team compares notes on which conditions you have and what your most prominent wellness struggles entail. 

They can recommend various supplements based on the results of your evaluation, or recommend blood testing to confirm suspected deficiencies. 

Which supplements might I need to take?

There are plenty of supplements out there, and it can be overwhelming learning about each of them and their benefits. With supplement guidance, you can narrow your list down to supplements that will benefit you without interacting with any of your medications or worsening any underlying health conditions. 

Based on the team’s findings, they may recommend that you take:

  • B complex
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D
  • Calcium 
  • Potassium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin K

The team explains the benefits of specific vitamins to you. Some alleviate symptoms like heart palpitations or widespread pain, while others improve metabolism, nerve function, immunity, or skin health. The team tells you how much you need to take and how often to take the supplements they recommend.
