I use supplements in the clinic each and every day, but Cecelia was keen to discuss this topic with somebody who really knew because it’s a little difficult to really know sometimes.
Dr Corey Schüler is a ‘generalist’ and knows a little about a lot. He knows supplements inside out, works in the supplement industry for over a decade. Corey has more credentials than I can fit on this page (ok, jokes but there are a LOT, he’s impressive) and is a wealth of information. This episode digs into the facts – do supplements really work?
3:50 – Cecelia asks the question, do supplements really work or are we just creating expensive and nutrient rich pee? Corey shares his thoughts, in which he somewhat agreed and discussed efficacy.
4:44 – But to suggest that all supplements are a waste of time and money is like saying all medications are horribly dangerous and should be avoided…. the reality is there is context.
7:26 – It’s all about the dosage. I share a patient story where one supplement changed a woman’s life who had severe anxiety.
9:07 – How as a child both Cecelia and I were both sickly children and the varied approach that was taken with regards to treatment.
9:45 – Corey spills the beans – why we do or do not need supplements and where they may work best.
11:35 – Tailor made medicine. Treating the root cause – why what we do day to day counts most and looking at why our body’s aren’t working well for long term solutions.
12:41 – Can we get enough nutrition from food? Corey’s answer surprised me!
13:45 – SIBO. Corey shares “you can’t eat yourself out of SIBO.”
15:30 – PCOS. How you CAN eat your way out of it….
17:00 – Cecelia shares her Doctors advice as to how to live healthy, simply.
19:00 – Corey spills the best diet for PCOS and/or fertility but the challenges that come with it.
20:10 – How to choose quality supplements.
23:55 – We asked Corey what his favourite supplement was. I guarantee it’s not what you think!
