itsnotjustlyme- You are very perceptive indeed! What you are saying may very well be true!
Once again the old adage applies here- different things for different people. Each patient should be tested to see whether their body needs it. A supplement that appears to be the missing link for one patient may create a roadblock for another patient. Also, a supplement that initially is indispensable for one patient may be a hindrance to that same patient a few months later after it has done its job. Another important issue to consider is dosage. As you say, excess often causes problems. The appropriate dosage can also be determined by proper testing.
When Heather was very sick I took things into my own hands to make her well. I took notice of the type of things that people said were helping them. I took notice of so many things that Heather was taking as many as 70 different herbs and supplements at one point. We brought them to the Hansa Center with us when she was treated there. Dr. J. tested for compatibility and only a few were found to be necessary! I realize now that we blew thousands of dollars on unnecessary supplements.
The human body has certainly been created with the innate wisdom to know what is good and what is bad for it. IMO failure to acknowledge this principle is one of the biggest errors of modern healthcare. I am amazed that many physicians are not familiar with this fundamental of doctoring!
