People often believe that just because certain nutrients are healthy, that the more we take the healthier we will be. But this is not necessarily the case. In fact, taking too many supplements, or the wrong combinations or in the wrong timing, can work against your health efforts. For all the money you are spending and the effort you are putting into trying to be healthier, you can actually be making yourself sicker.

Taking supplements safely and effectively is a highly misunderstood nutritional art and science. For example, there are acidic vs. alkaline supplements. How you take them, even the timing of when you take them with food, matters. There are also “pro-oxidative” and “anti-oxidative” nutraceuticals. A balance between the two may make a huge difference in your healing journey and efforts to become well or stay well.

On this show Drs. Brownstein and Berkson share their combined 70 years of clinical experience with using supplements in functional medicine practice. This is a power packed show with empowering knowledge that many patients and doctors alike are not educated about.
