Vitamin Supplements Q & A

Harmony Health MD

Why are vitamin supplements important?

Vitamin supplements help to bridge the gap between what you’re eating and the nutrients you aren’t getting.
There are 13 essential vitamins that your body needs. Although you may get some of these vitamins in your diet, many people have vitamin deficiencies because they aren’t eating the right foods or their bodies can’t absorb food nutrients effectively.

Since stress, environmental toxins, and underlying medical conditions can further deplete your body of vitamins, supplements are important for almost everyone. The 13 essential vitamins play a role in the health of many bodily functions, including:

  • Immunity
  • Skin and hair health
  • Vision
  • Metabolism
  • Hormones
  • Bone strength
  • Wound healing
  • Blood sugar

Though vitamins can’t replace a healthy diet, they're an essential part of preventing disease, feeling energized, and fighting stress.

What conditions can vitamin supplements treat?

Since vitamins can help assist many different functions and processes of the body, they are helpful when treating a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Immunity problems — colds, flus, and fevers
  • Chronic diseases — diabetes, cancer, or hormone disorders
  • Skin issues — acne, psoriasis, dry skin, or fungal infections
  • Mood disorders — anxiety, depression, or panic attacks
  • Menstrual cycle problems — PMS, cramps, or bleeding disorders
  • Chronic pain — from injuries, accidents, arthritis, or other conditions

Since many symptoms are the result of a vitamin deficiency, the right supplements can improve your health quickly.

What vitamin supplements do I need?

At Harmony Health, your physicians work with you on an individualized treatment plan that might include vitamins, minerals, or homeopathic supplements to trigger the body’s healing response.

Besides vitamin supplements, you might also benefit from vitamin infusions, which deliver nutrients directly to your bloodstream through an IV. Your treatment plan might also include specific dietary or lifestyle changes that will support your healing.

What results can I expect?

Adding vitamin supplements to your medical care can drastically improve your health, your mood, and your energy levels. Combined with the right diet, exercise program, and other health-sustaining habits, vitamins give your body the nutrients it needs to perform at an optimal level all the time.
