The Truth About Supplements

The Good. The Bad. And the Unnecessary.

You begin taking supplements with very good intentions; you want to make sure you are getting the necessary vitamins and minerals for optimal health. Unfortunately, there is so much new information about supplements that you may fall victim to the “kitchen sink approach.” You keep adding more supplements to your regimen as you read about them or hear about them on TV or the Internet.

It’s a common myth that more of a good thing is even better; in truth, more can be toxic or even deadly. That’s why Dr. Abernathy asks you to bring all of your medications and supplements, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines and natural products, to your initial consultation.

Your customized supplement program.

Dr. Abernathy will spend time carefully reviewing your supplements and identify which ones are good for you, which ones are bad for you, and which ones are redundant or unnecessary. Her goal is to streamline your program so that you use only top-quality supplements that benefit your health most. In the process, you’ll spend less money, take fewer supplements each day and derive greater health benefits with Dr. Abernathy’s customized supplement program. Every supplement Dr. Abernathy recommends is carefully chosen; nothing is random. The manufacturers may be different, but they all share in common the fact that their supplements represent the best quality on the market for the best price.
