Hey guys, Don't get mad at me...I'm just saying what my son's doctor told him! My son has had 5 different doctors in the 10 years and not one told him to take vitamins,,no kidding!! I was surprised because I just assumed they were great to take. But most doctors will tell you that if you eat the right foods you get ALL the vitamins you need. You can actually have a toxic affect from some, like Vitamin A for instance. If you check the cereal box, they have every Vitamin you need, and that is just breakfast. Have a banana with it and you had a good meal. Yep, I do eat junk food, and I swear, my blood pressure is perfect, arteries clean, HDL is 85 and my doctor tells me whatever I'm doing, keep it up. ???? I tell her,
"I don't do anything special." I do go to a gym 3 times a week, and I nibble on walnuts, almonds, eat fruit, and drink a LOT of Green tea.
Plus ice cream,, chocolate bars, and occasional chips..
But I get all my nutrients from actual food, not a pill. AND... save money that I spend on actual food. But, again, this is NOT coming from me, the DOCTOR SAID IT! As I said earlier,, I notice you folks who take all the Vitamins still get flares, so it really doesn't heal your colon.
But, I guess the vitamins can help you if you don't eat balanced meals and look for them to give you what you need in other parts of your body. Also, my daughter in law, asked her pediatrician what Vitamin to give her sons, and he said, NONE, just give them good food. Now that surprised me because I gave my sons Vitamins growing up to form good bones etc. But, her doctor said not too.
Please don't thinik I'm trying to start a feud here,,, I was just passing on info from doctors, not me. But you gotta admit, on TV all you see is advertising for Medicine, and Vitamins..hmmm, makes you wonder why all of a sudden just plain good food isn't good enough anymore. Like some other Grannie on the board said, she read that doctors get some kinda kick back from all these meds.
Ok, enough. I wish you all the best of health, no matter how want to achieve it.
