When most people hear the word “supplement” they immediately think Yes! or NO. Keep in mind, they are not saying this out loud. Their subconscious has already formed an opinion, typically based on past experience, that determines how they view this multi-billion dollar industry. The YES group is enthusiastic. They haven’t lost hope. They want to feel better, look better, function better and know that there’s an answer out there somewhere.
By contrast, the NO group has lost all hope. They have been misguided by the latest and greatest multi-level marketing scheme, they have swallowed more “horse pills” than they can count, they’ve spent hundreds of dollars trying to find their way. The various paths they have taken have led them to a place of disbelief and frustration. My heart goes out to this group. I want to grab each and every one of them and give them a big hug and say “Let me help you!” Why? Because I was one of these people.
I spent years looking for answers and finally gave up. What I didn’t realize was that I was looking for answers in the wrong places. My friends seemed to know more than my doctors and the information I was finding online was understandably questionable. It wasn’t until I started looking at basic science that things started to make sense. Here’s what I learned that started me down the right path:
- If there’s a problem, there’s a problem. It’s not in your head, you’re not making it up, and you don’t have to “just live with it.”
- Basic science – you are a great big giant collective group of cells. Individually they are not complicated, collectively they are quite complex. Don’t get lost in the complexity.
- Every cell has nutritional gaps. When you feed your body, you’re feeding your cells. Your mitochondrion, ribosomes and nucleus can only do so much with the reserves you have. You’re not going to die tomorrow if you don’t fill the gaps. The questions becomes “How much more can I accomplish if I do?”
- Focus on one problem at a time. Doing something is better than doing nothing so give yourself a break.
Any amount of effort you put in to filling the gaps will pay off, even if it’s just one multi-vitamin twice a week for the rest of your life. Trust me. Your collective group of cells will thank you.
