WELLNESS IN MARCH
 by Dr. Bridget Ross, ND / office upstairs at MYD / www.bridgetrossnd.com
What Should I take?  These are my “Top 5” supplements:
Every person is unique. Naturopathic medicine is rooted in individualized medicine, which means tailoring a person’s health protocol to their unique needs & health picture. That being said, there are some common supplements that a naturopathic doctor may opt to prescribe for you. A naturopathic doctor is trained in appropriate dosing along with effectiveness, bioavailability, & brand quality. Though its a good idea to speak with your naturopathic doctor before beginning anything new, the following are my top 5 supplements for general health purposes.
1. Vitamin D: Also called the “Happy Vitamin” because it plays an important role in mood, immune health, bone health & anti-inflammation.
2. Probiotic: The gut is also known as the “second brain” because a healthy gut helps to make a healthy mind. It also helps with a variety of gastrointestinal concerns including bloating, constipation, & IBS.
3. Fish Oil: The all important anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acid. This will keep your cells nice and flexible as well as feed the brain & improve digestion.
4. Multi-Vitamin: Sometimes in life its important to cover your bases with a multi vitamin to ensure you are getting all the minerals & vitamins that you may be missing from diet. Certainly a multi-vitamin with folate is crucial leading into & during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
5. B Complex: This complex is super helpful for stress & adrenal fatigue. B vitamins play a crucial role in energy production pathways. Ensuring our B vitamins are sufficient will help keep us energized throughout the day.
