Recommended Supplements For Readers in the USA
This is a basic supplement programme you can start as part of the Actions in Chapter 12 of my book, to begin to improve your nutritional status.
If you decide to consult with a Nutritionist or Functional Medicine doctor, they will fine-tune and personalise your supplements, according to the outcome of the full consultations you have with them and your individual needs and test results.
If you are on prescribed medications, I advise you to seek professional help prior to taking any supplements, by contacting the manufacturers (see links below) to ensure there are no contra-indications with the medications you are taking.

For further information on these supplements and to discuss any contra-indications to your prescription medication, you will need to contact these manufacturers. If you are on medication, do not take any of the supplements before speaking to them. Visit their websites for information of local stockists where you can purchase their supplements or how you can order on-line direct from them.
