Supplement Your Life
Alternative Medicine food retailers recognize the demand for healthier food is increasing. Many major brands are changing their ingredients and using cleaner sources. Retailers are creating more space for “natural” brands, and according to the Retail Grocer’s Association, almost 95 percent of chain supermarkets employ a nutritionist or wellness advisor.
Which brings me back to this particular issue of Alternative Medicine. While we acknowledge the benefits of supplements, it is important to realize they are just that—supplements. No multivitamin or combination of herbs can replace day-to-day wellness habits like a healthy diet, regular exercise, or the strategies that Richard Louv promotes in his article on page 44. In this issue you’ll learn about the benefits of truly powerful routines—from getting the elusive vitamin N and staying hydrated to, yes, taking a dietary supplement.
