Diet Tip #27: Don’t Rely on Supplements

Dr Michael Finkelstein board-certified internist and certified holistic physician and founder of the healthy living concept Skillful Living says, “It is important not to allow ourselves to become romanticized by the fantasies that one, two or a combination of 10 supplements will resolve our underlying issues. The ‘dependence’ on supplements, instead of an approach that is more holistic leads people down a path of greater reliance on outside forces to keep their life in balance. People lose touch with more reliable ways of caring for themselves and often get stuck.” That means eating a healthy well-balanced diet that provides the nutrients you need and only then take a multi if you think your diet is falling short.
