Supplementation – the right way

Supplementation – the right way 1

Technology and the fast paced world that we live in allow us to experience a whole lot more than previous generations were able to enjoy. There are unfortunately also many factors that contribute to a more stressful and harmful environment for us to live in, which can ultimately damage our health.

Perhaps the most compromised in these modern times is the food that we eat. Years ago food provided the nutrition we needed, exactly the way mother nature intended, but today a lot of our food is highly processed, genetically modified, affected by pollution and unfortunately not providing us with the nutrients that we need. Poor food preparation adds to this challenge.

On top of the list of factors impacting our health is stress – it takes an enormous toll on the body.

The body requires high quality nutrients to achieve and maintain good health. What some may consider a good health plan will in many cases be insufficient to remain healthy.

Fortunately many of these factors can be minimised by taking dietary supplements – products intended for ingestion that contain a dietary ingredient that adds further nutritional value to the food diet. These may include vitamins, minerals, herbs or other botanicals, amino acids and other essential ingredients.

Dietary supplements may be found in many forms – some help ensure that you get an adequate dietary intake of essential nutrients; others may help you reduce your risk of disease.

At Health Renewal, the practice of integrative medicine (an approach that uses hormonal restoration and nutraceutical supplementation to prevent diseases, before they even begin) is firmly built on a patient-specific evaluation. A detailed clinicical history and examination, as well as blood tests and stool analysis or CDSA (Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis) will give the doctors a precise guideline on which deficits or problems exist in the body. These deficiencies will then be corrected with the necessary nutraceuticals (supplementation), lifestyle changes, traditional medication and if needed intra venous (IV) detoxification. A holistic, specialised approach to attaining ultimate health and wellbeing.

The dietary supplements that the team of medical doctors at Health Renewal include as a part of the overall health plan are natural, top quality, science-based nutritional supplements.

The team is constantly kept up to date with developments in this area, to ensure that only the best products are prescribed to clients to achieve maximum results.

  1. I get sick much easier if I do not take supplements. They do help even if it does not feel like it sometime. We do not always consume all the food groups or necessary vitamins therefore a supplement is just wonderful.

  2. Can we please get more information? It sounds very interesting. I’m not too sure about the iv detox though.
