Creating Waves of Awareness
As a homeopath, "Do you approve or disapprove of the use of vitamins and minerals. Do they have any role for the following?"
1. Pregnant women/nursing mothers
2. Chronically ill patient
3. Dieters (Whose calorie intake may not be sufficient to supply all nutrients)
4. The Elderly
5. Those recovering from infection or surgery
Yes I do approve for pregnant women yes. Iron and Ca is a must. For chronically ill patients if we support with vitamins, minerals and iron it helps.
I am as a Homeopath approve of using minerals and vitamin supplements in only those cases where there is reasonable lesser intake of these through daily diet, also those who are eating junk food and where there is increased demand ,also in cases of elderly where there is less intake of food due to anorexia.
In all other cases one must resort to CONSTITUTIONAL HOMEOPATHIC treatment to increase the proper absorption and assimilation of all minerals and vitamins.Help of biochemical tissue remedies can also be taken in such cases.As use of Calc Phos 3X or 6X in calcium deficiency, Ferr Phos 3X in iron deficiency and Five phos 6X in general debility.
Vitamins and minerals help a lot and should be taken according to the requirement.
