No thanks. ” What is the difference between some conventional doctors that push a plethora of prescriptions versus a naturopathic doctor that pushes a plethora of dietary supplements? A good review with a patient with or at high-risk of a medical condition covers lifestyle changes and supplements (to take or not) and prescriptions (to take or not). The goal again is less pills, or lower dosages of the existing medications. I have reviewed this elsewhere in this book, but I believe this point needs reiteration because I find that it is becoming very relevant.

Supplements with higher concentrations of the active ingredients, PAC-A (proanthocyanidin A), need more research [77, 78], but are arguably an option being utilized currently for antibiotic-intolerant patients based on benefit over risk ongoing research [25, 77–79]. Looking for reasonable priced supplement with a higher concentration of PAC or especially PAC-A is important since there is no stand out product from a major clinical trial (numerous products exist in Europe such as Anthocran, Cysticlean, Monoselect Macrocarpon-enteric-coated that are regulated).

Oh, and I also added a celebrity endorsement to promote the product with real verve. And this is exactly what has been done by some (small number but vociferous and profitable) companies in the supplement business, but one would hope that patients and clinicians would be wise enough to simply just recommend low-cost aspirin? ” Thus, in this example I would simply just recommend beta-sitosterol from food or the lower priced single ingredient or primarily generic “plant sterol” supplement pill compared to any other product, and this would save the patient a large sum of money and would follow the research and it would appear to be the most ethical route.
