Today I'm chatting about supplements. Many conversations out there about supplements, so I'll just start by saying that I believe in taking supplements because every day we face many hurdles to our health + wellness:
-nutrient deficiencies caused by diet
-lack of exercise and quality sleep
-exposure to toxins
If we do not meet our daily nutrition requirements this can lead to problems, or make existing problems worse. I am not willing to chance it because there’s a very good chance that my needs are not being met simply by eating a healthy diet.
Does a nutrient dense diet filled with whole foods help? Absolutely! But let’s be honest, who really eats a ‘perfect’ diet every meal of every day. Supplements do not replace a wholesome diet, but they work with that diet to provide your glowing wellness. So I supplement to promote overall wellness and address person health issues (hello, vestibular disorder). I want to know that I am doing everything I can to nourish my body. Because this is my body – the only one I got – and I deserve to feel better than just ok, I deserve to glow. And my friend, so do you.
When I got hit with vestibular neuritis, I wasn’t supplementing consistently. I started to do my own research (countless hours looking for answers) and as I took a look at my holistic approach, I felt there was a hole. Enter: supplementation.
I’m going to share with you the supplements I take and tell you why, and then I ask that you take a look at your current wellness routine and determine whether it could use a boost. This is about uncovering what is best for you and to do that you have to consider how you’re nourishing your body now, and what changes may be needed.
I'd love to hear what works for you (or doesn't). These are important conversations to have in order to level up our wellness.
