Natural Medicines VS Pharmaceuticals: Here's What I Tell My Patients

What I tell My Patients that Take Natural Supplements: Dr. Meredith Warner

When taking natural medicines, results can take a little longer than traditional pharmaceuticals that are formulated specifically to relieve symptoms.

Natural remedies attempt to address the root causes, or the cellular beginnings of a given problem, pain, or inflammation. 

Naturally, this will take a bit longer and be less noticeable initially. But the results are wonderful.

Dr. Warner Encourages You To Consider These Tips When You Start A New Supplement Routine:

  1. Have a mindset of wellness over time: Don’t Expect It To Feel Like A Synthetic Drug. The timeline for better health with natural medicine is longer than with synthetic pharmaceuticals.
  2. Addressing Root Cause: Natural remedies attempt to address the root causes, or the cellular beginnings of a given problem, pain, or inflammation. Naturally, this will take a bit longer and be less noticeable initially. But the results are wonderful.
  3. Few Known Side Effects: My Well Theory products are formulated with higher doses of plant-based ingredients to deliver steady results over time – without the harmful side effects found in traditional pharmaceutical applications.
  4. Get Blood Work Done: There are inflammatory markers you can check to determine your progress.
  5. I Take Everything We Make: I wholeheartedly believe in the power of natural supplements. 
  6. Stacking For Results: A supplement stack is a combination of two or more products, the goal of taking a supplement stack is to capitalize on the synergistic power they have with each other. Stacking is known to be the most effective way to get the results needed from natural supplements. When you take more than one supplement, you are taking advantage of the different healing pathways in the body. 
I take everything we make. I wholeheartedly believe in the power of natural supplements. - Meredith Warner, MD Quote

THE HIDDEN COSTS OF SYNTHETIC PHARMACEUTICALS

Synthetic pharmaceuticals are designed to deliver quick relief and normally do so effectively.

However, these methods can often have worrying side effects such as disrupting your gut biome and more. Synthetic pharmaceuticals are usually single molecule designs that produce an overwhelming response.

These can be patented and mass-produced and are covered by insurance companies.

Natural medicines use the entourage effect of a more gentle combination of phytochemicals in a given extract that provide a more gentle improvement in health.

Here’s what you can expect from my Tart Cherry Extract – and other natural medicines as well.

How Inflammation Creates Disease & Pain

Many of us carry clinically significant low-grade inflammation in our bodies that we cannot see or feel. The only way you can really know if inflammation is being produced throughout the body is to request a blood panel checking your inflammatory markers.

But just because you can’t feel it or see it – doesn’t mean that it isn’t impacting your health.

This journal asserted that “Chronic inflammatory diseases are the most significant cause of death in the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks chronic diseases as the greatest threat to human health.”

Chronic inflammation is regarded as the root cause behind diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, certain arthritic conditions, allergies, neurodegenerative problems and more.

IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH - FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Holistic methods of relief result in long-term, steady results. Natural medicines are formulated to address the root cause of discomfort, disability and inflammation and steadily relieve it over time.

These methods reduce your perception of pain by improving your well-being from the inside out.

Because of this, you may not feel the immediate relief you might be accustomed to from NSAIDs and other pain relievers – but that’s okay. Unlike synthetic pharmaceuticals, our plant-based formulation has no harmful side effects.

When Using Natural Medicine, Rethink Your Expectations

I always encourage my patients to give it time when trying new natural medicines. Tart Cherry Extract works to relieve inflammation and oxidative stress throughout the body.

Any problem areas you’re noticing will begin to feel relief over time, but your relief will last as your overall health improves.

When taking natural medicines, results can take a little longer than traditional pharmaceuticals. Lab-created synthetic molecules formulated to relieve symptoms, not the root cause of a problem, discomfort or inflammation.

Old Ways Of Healing VS New Ways Of Healing

Synthetic pharmaceuticals are designed to deliver quick relief and normally do so effectively – but can often have worrying side effects such as disrupting your gut biome and more.

My Well Theory products are formulated with higher doses of plant-based ingredients to deliver steady results over time – without the harmful side effects found in traditional pharmaceutical applications.

Give it time – usually, it takes about 90 days to feel the full effects of natural medicines.

At Well Theory and in my orthopedic wellness clinic, we don’t believe in quick fixes. Instead, we believe in holistic healing that lasts.

And we truly believe that you have the ability to make lasting changes in your overall health + well-being.
