Does Your Doctor Recommend Supplements?

A survey shows that 79% of physicians and health care professionals do recommend dietary supplements to their patients. Find out what conditions top their list.

According to a survey of 900 physicians and 300 registered nurses and nurse practitioners in the US, bone, joint and heart health are among the main health conditions for which they recommend dietary supplements to patients. Maintaining overall health and wellness and a healthy cholesterol level also figured highly in the survey.

The top five conditions (by percentage of physicians recommending) were:
• Bone Health 33%
• Overall health and wellness 32%
• Joint health 29%
• Heart health 26%
• Maintain healthy cholesterol 22%

The physicians were not asked to recommend specific supplements in the poll, which was conducted by the Council for Responsible Nutrition. But what do they actually take themselves? 72% of physicians use dietary supplements; of those, 87% used a multivitamin, 78% use vitamin C, 63% use B vitamins, 59% use vitamin D, 58% use vitamin E, and 58% use calcium.

Female physicians are more likely than male physicians to take single vitamins or mineral supplements. They also take more calcium and iron. Male physicians are more likely to take fish oil. They are more likely to cite heart health and maintaining healthy cholesterol as reasons for taking dietary supplements.

Our Pathway to Healing line of supplements has complete, natural products, such as Basic Nutrient Support, Bone Support, Joint Support and Cardiovascular Support, that address the top five conditions mentioned by the physicians. Talk to your doctor about supplements – and maybe you can even recommend one to him/her yourself!

Are you ready to face eternity? If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life and desire to make that commitment now please repeat the following prayer:

Lord Jesus be merciful to me a sinner. I realize that I have sinned against you and come short of your glory. I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and I believe in my heart that God has raised him from the dead. I pray for your forgiveness and ask that you save me now and accept me into your kingdom. Give me eternal life today.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
