I take mostly NAP supplements and recently I have been wondering if I have been taking too much... I take 20 on any given day. Plus, I've started to take spirulina and chlorella for heavy metal detox, given the fact that low dose radiation is becoming an ongoing reality now.

If I am following my SWAMI about 98% of the time, should I still be taking the recommended supps like Hunter 3-pack and Type O 3-pack?

I also find the Exercise and Female packages very helpful for my particular health issues.

So far I haven't had any adverse reactions to any of them.

But, I'm just wondering if I should cut back on some because it has been rather costly!

On the other hand, I understand that the minerals/nutritional content in our food today are "never quite enough" given the condition of the soil today.

Just Rhodiola Rosea regularly, plus an occasional magnesium and Explorer Catalyst.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I take CoQ10--which to me is a miracle substance, as it is profoundly helpful in so many ways--every day.  I take between 30 to 100 mgs per day, usually 30.

Any time I'm feeling in the slightest run down or have been exposed to sick folk, I take Dr. D.'s Proberry Caps.  GREAT stuff.

I also have NAP's Redoxa (for lung health) and Ocubright (eye health), which I pop occasionally.

And that's about all she wrote.  My diet truly is my best medicine and doesn't require much, if anything, in the way of supplements, yay!  Winning!

I'm taking:

vitamin B-50 complex
calcium/magnesium/zinc (one pill, when the bottle recomends 2 per day)
topical magnesium oil
vitamin D
rhodiola

I try to get most of my nutrients from food. Daily I drink rose hip tea (and eat the rose hips) and add a little larch powder from Dr D to the cup. I'm not sure if I should count that as a beverage or a supplement.  I wouldn't take the calcium if I was consistent about drinking bone broth and/or eating fish bones daily.

I give my son a chewable "adult" multivitamin from Trader Joe's, but I don't give it to him daily. I also give him elderberry syrup in the cooler months. My oldest takes an adult multivitamin (not from Dr D, but as compliant as we can find locally and a heck of a lot cheaper) and I can't get my younger daughter to take vitamins at all. I try to sneak as much nutrition as I can into the bean/veggie soups she enjoys: seaweeds for iodine and nutritional yeast for B vitamins. Plus I feed them as compliantly as possible and encourage them to have plenty of fruits and veggies. It's a constant struggle with the younger two.

Except for a probiotic that I forget to take most of the time, I don't take any supplements.  I would order those my swami recommends, but I'm not employed right now and I can't afford them while we're living on one income.  DH would hit the roof if I started ordering $100+ per month of supplemlents.  If I were earning a 2nd income, I'd buy them.
