Did you know that an average Doctor only receives 19.6 hour of nutritional education in medical school? 19.6 hours, Seriously?
Have you ever asked your doctor specific nutritional questions? What did she/he say?
I like to ask questions, I’m an inquisitive guy. and I love the nutrition topic (my wife says I am annoying at the dr.’s office) I usually get answers like; eat vegetables, take a multivitamin, eat less animal fat, eat less sugar. Hey, thanks.
These are the recommendations that I got when diagnosed with heart conditions, cholesterol, digestive issues, and general health over the years.
While those recommendations are nice, you know that is the minimal information that most people already know. I actually teach much more in-depth info to 7th and 8th graders in my Empowered Youth Lifestyle Program. So they are more well educated than some doctors. All that to point out that it is taking a Pandemic for them to finally recommend vitamin regimen to ALL patients, but especially those affected with covid or other bronchial issues.
I just hung up with a new client and we discussed nutrition as part of her program. She works for the hospital in the COVID unit and they are required to take vitamins including a minimum of 3,000 IU of Vitamin D3 (Vitamin D3 is now recommended by every health care provider for the covid support).
Yay to the doctors. At least they finally caught up, sort of, with the health and fitness profession.
The D3 is being recommended for immune system boosting. Everyone I have spoken to says their doctor is recommending it. So, it’s either their new ‘vitamin of the day’ or they finally get it. Either way, it’s good. Are you taking yours?
When you work with me and my team, we will strongly recommend that you take at minimum the Big 3. These will help bridge the nutrient gap your body needs for daily function, workout support, and immune system boosting.
- Multivitamin (close the nutrition gap for what your body needs vs what it gets from food)
- Omega oils (host of immune boosting, heart health, cell health properties)
- Vitamin D3 (immune boosting as discussed)
Please be sure you are armed with these at a minimum. And, yes our nutrition store carries all of these plus a couple of other really good products for weight management. (20% Off for January). Don’t come up short or get cheap on your nutrition supplements – it’s too important for your body and your health. Keep in mind that not all products are created equal.
