Hello everyone. I am thinking of ordering the Gatherer supplement pack. I am a little nervous because I am very sensitive to supplements, herbs, medications.
Does anyone have experience with this?

Thanks

I found them to be great for uplifting moods and concentration, especially felt good after the oil one whatever it's called.


when my status changed to explorer  it took a while to get a similar effect perfered the gather supps, so enjoy.

if you're sensitive do what i always do start slow half the dose or even a quarter and incease a bit each week, if comfortable stay on half a dose for a while. let it all happen slowly.

kind regards and more positive hugs oxo

I did very well with the Gatherer supps when I followed the Gatherer diet before I got SWAMI and found out I am an Explorer. The supps made me feel calm and helped me shed the last few pounds I wanted to lose. Part of me almost liked them more than the Explorer pack but that was because that pack was addressing liver issues.

Thanks Dianne. I would like to do Swami at some point, I can't afford anything extra at the moment, and I think I'll stick with Gatherer for a while. Yes, addressing liver issues isn't always pleasant :-)

I often (usually) take less than is recommended for many of the supplements.  Others, I end up taking more as needed.  Best to start with smaller dose and work up if you are concerned.

If money is tight, you may want to skip the supplements altogether (taking the money you'd otherwise have spent on them into a fund to save up for SWAMI) and just follow the diet for now. Not everybody *needs* the supplements, and if you think that maybe you'd have a bad reaction to them, you may do better without them.

Get some magnolia. You'll love it. Excellent for your profile.

I have tried not using supps at all and find that even a small amount helps so i would perhaps reduce to one cap a day but if i stop i don't feel so good especially the phytocal one.

even if i'm in a cash flow situation i still take one cap of phytocal and one cap polyvite a day or (exakta). and that cash flow is taking a hiding at the moment...

If Histona contains magnolia bark, then yes. Excellent for Gatherers.

The Gatherer supplement pack is $69.85, while SWAMI Xpress is $69.95

It seems silly to me to spend money on supplements that you may or may not tolerate, when for ten cents more you can get SWAMI and be able to fine-tune your diet. Then, if you want to order supplements in the  future, you can double-check all the ingredients with your SWAMI list and be better able to avoid those supplements that don't sit right with you. You also may find out that you're a Hunter or Explorer, and need an entirely  different set of supplements than the ones you're thinking of buying right now.

Also, be aware that the Gatherer 3-pack does NOT include some "basics" like a multivitamin, multimineral, and probiotics. You might do better taking the type O supplements rather than the Genotype supplements. SWAMI will help you figure out which supplements are most needed right now.
