Many or most over the counter supplements have nasty side effects (especially long-term use) and often block important nutrients. We generally prefer to pop a pill then listen to our body- but what if we could both listen to our bodies and get back to work? Luckily, we have alternatives that help just as effectively and these “medicines” yet truly “do no harm” and instead benefit the body as well as treat the symptom. As always, check with your functional medicine doctor before consuming anything that is new to make sure it is compatible with your body. After all, one man’s cure is another man’s poison.
