I gave up purchasing nutritional supplements long ago. The more I read, the more I realized I was ingesting the synthetic version of health, from a bottle, rather than from the foods I ate. What I was reading suggested a vast difference between supplements and their food sources, so I decided to stop plugging the nutritional holes in my diet with pills. Instead, I focused on adding more whole foods to my diet, the optimal way to bolster health. My schedule, however, didn’t always allow me to have as many vegetables as I needed in a day, which left me lacking vitamins and minerals etc.  Not knowing what to do, I did what many people do, I ignored the issue.

Fortunately, five years ago, a trusted healer/herbalist recommended I add Standard Process (SP) products to my healing regimen. At the time I was having bouts of very dry, itching, and oozing skin, also known as eczema. I knew my diet was likely the key to healing it, but how to get enough of what I needed and fast! The SP products worked for me and continue to play a key role in abating my skin condition, as well as other issues that have popped up over the years.

I’m very happy to now offer SP products, the very best whole-food nutritional and herbal supplements on the market. In fact, you can’t get whole-food supplements of this quality through retail outlets. You also needn’t be an acupuncture patient to use them (but you do need to be a licensed health professional to sell them). I love these products not only for their results, but because they affordably enhance my treatments when I can’t regularly see my own healers.

For this time of year, I’m recommending what I call Core Nutrition. Let’s face it, much of our food supply is crap, either stripped of valuable nutrition or of questionable content altogether. SP owns a certified organic farm outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin where they take what they grow and make it available in easy to digest pill or capsule forms. If it’s something that can’t be grown on their farm, they source organic and sustainable ingredients from around the world. The company has been in business since 1929 and stand behind their products 100%.

One of the four products I recommend as part of this Core Nutrition is Catalyn. Catalyn is a whole-food multivitamin. This product contains 15 different food sources, and every food in Catalyn provides vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.  You receive nutrients in whole-food form, rather than in incomplete, isolated compounds from the food. If you currently take a multivitamin, find out where the nutrients come from. Do you recognize them?  Are they comprehensive?  Are they man-made? SP is transparent on where their ingredients are sourced and why they are important to your health. For example, one of the ingredients in Catalyn is carrot root. Did you know that carrot root alone contains 200 known nutrients and phytonutrients that are vital to your health (all are listed on their brochure and website)? Sweet!

For more information on the remaining three products in the Core Nutrition package I’m recommending, please contact me. I’m happy to see if the SP products are a fit for your wellness plan. Oh, and if you’re wondering about cost, I’m very pleased that the price point for their products is excellent. For example, for many of their products a three-month supply is $10.  You get a lot of value for your health from Standard Process.
