Supplements - When They Are Not Safe

I received this article from HeadWay, my migraine info connection. He has ssome excellent tips, the article is pretty universally applicable. Always remember to please be sure to consult your physician before trying any supplements.

He touches on:
- Supplement Regulations
- Natural does not mean safe
- The Number of Ways a Supplement Can Be Dangerous
- Drug enhancement

TIPS - see article for details

  • Talk to your doctor first.  

  • Recognize that not all supplements are created equal. 

  • Look for supplements recommended by sources that you trust.  

  • Do your own research. 

  • Don't adopt a "might as well" attitude. 

  • DO try supplements. 

  • Please remember to consult your physician before trying anything new. I am not a doctor and no information I provide here should be considered medical advice.The information I share on this website is not intended to replace a one-on-one relationship with a qualified health care professional and is not intended as medical advice.  It is intended as a sharing of knowledge and information from my research and experience. Links to other sites are provided for ease of research. Information on those sites is the opinion of those who publish the sites and is NOT necessarily that of FibroChick. I offer what I can as help. I believe in educating myself on all my medical issues and being my own advocate, for no one else will do that on my behalf. I recommend we all do the same! I encourage you to make your own health care decisions based upon your research and in partnership with a qualified health care professional.
