Which vitamins should I be careful with if I try orthomolecular medicine?

Which vitamins should I be careful with if I try orthomolecular medicine?

Depends...: The vitamins to be most cautious of are the fat soluble ones. The most important part of this approach is to work with a doctor who has knowledge and experience in this area. Ask what training they've had and how long they've been doing it. I prefer to do testing before prescribing anything. Having said that, there have been no deaths in the last 10 years from vitamins. ...Read more

Why are we instructed to store our vitamins and medicine at room temperature?

Why are we instructed to store our vitamins and medicine at room temperature?

Condensations: Condensation occurs with temperature extremes. If you keep a supplement refrigerated and then remove it only to return it minutes later, water droplets will form that ultimately breakdown the integrity of the capsule or tablet. Water is the real culprit. Likewise, keep supplements away from extreme heat sources. Quality supplements are actually controlled food products. They have a shelflife too. ...Read more

A comprehensive medical exam with this question in mind is the best place to start. ...Read more

I'm 34yr and i want to try having a baby, which vitamins should I take and when should I stop taking them?

Just eat healthy: Male or female, there's little reason to think that taking glitzy supplements will help you become a parent. I trust you're eating a generally healthy diet, for your own sake. A woman planning to conceive does well to be sure she has enough Folic Acid and iron on board. What you can get in a cheap drugstore-chain vitamin-&-mineral tab is plenty. Good luck & stay proactive. ...Read more

If I've gone a couple weeks without taking prenatal vitamins but would like to try again and start up again, is that ok? Considering I hadn't been

Absolutely: The data shows that prenatal vitamins should be taken before pregnancy to decrease the risk of spinal cord abnormalities in babies. Most women in the US have an adequate diet, but 50% of pregnancies in this country are unplanned, so yes, you can restart the vitamin. There is no "withdrawal' if you stop suddenly, and no risk (other than stomach upset if you had any), to restarting. ...Read more
