Supplements costing an arm and a leg

3 posts in this topic

I notice that a lot of people on the holistic health forum are into supplements. I think that's great, I credit diet and supplementation with clearing me so much that I hardly ever think about my skin any more. What I notice about some products, though, is that they are incredibly expensive. Who can afford even one bottle of Primal Defense let alone ongoing dosage? I can't, and I'm sure many others can't as well. Even if I was able to, I don't know if I'd want to. I feel like a sucker, shelling out money to a company that is making a killing. Now, the Garden of Eden people want us to follow the "Maker's Diet," which conveniently enough, includes tons of their products. In His infinite wisdom, I'm sure God in Heaven created this company so we could follow the kind of diet He intended us to.

I see homeless people in the street, with nothing to eat and nowhere to sleep, while the CEO of GOE and Greensplus are sleeping on beds of money and many women. I don't feel guilty in the slightest for taking full advantage of the various companies' money back guarantee, I give greens+ away and I'm laughing all the way to the bank, not paying for their overpriced products.

wow, that was a weird rant

Plaquoid-mucous cleansing-type junk, liver flushing, colloidal silver, coral calcium... these are definitely NOT part of my regimen

They're just as bad as the drug companies with prices, if not worse(they don't have to put in billions to researching suppliments because the info is already there).

Oh yeah health and physical "beauty" , one way or another, can usually be obtained by any wealthy person.

These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.

Stage 1 (Treatment):

* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)

* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.

Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002

* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)

* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.

Stage 3 (Correction):

* Strengthen/Repair GI - Immune health


* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).

* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.
