Having said that, I encourage all of my patients to make a clear distinction between general metabolic and tissue support and using supplements to correct a known clinical illness.
Lab testing is the only way to certain that you know what you need, why you need it and how long it should take to restore your health.
I always ask new patients to bring in ‘whatever’ they have been taking so we can make some precise and tactical choices. You would be amazed at how many people come into my office with a suitcase full of supplements, wondering why all of that effort and money isn’t working.
Most supplements are essentially concentrated food. They get used making up for a poor diet. Once people are on a focused and nutrient-dense protocol, it gets a lot easier to make the right choices and get some tangible results.
Each phase of the Ancestral-AIP can be augmented by, or may depend on, the right combination of nutritional supplementation.
If we have not met and I have not seen your lab work, I cannot make any precise or predictably effective recommendations for you. However, as you read through this website, ideally Phase by Phase, I will make some general recommendations that you can confirm with your health care team.
