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.
Before, I've been taking two supplements. One is Multivitamins and another is Omega 3 Fish Oil. But i change my supplements i take last month. Now I'm taking MX Stress Protect, a natural supplements with the most stress relief. By the way, do you know any supplements good for the kids? Thanks. I will wait for your reply guys..
Azure Agony, You are not alone! I have been taking half of my supps for a long time! All from NAP: Basic pack for BT A (polyvite,flora, cal deflect) cortiguard proberry caps helix (snail) Quercetin genoma derma ...and I take D3 and fish oil from my local health food store.

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.
