Nutritional supplements

Maintaining optimum health in today’s fast paced world is hard to accomplish without some help. This usually comes in the form of nutritional supplements to fill in what we are missing in our diet. But not all supplements are made alike and so often a supplement review is a good way to determine if you are taking everything you need and in the most beneficial form.

If you were to take a close look at what you eat each day, chances are you would discover that you are missing some key minerals and trace elements. Even people who are careful of their diet and take good care of their bodies find this is true. It is also true that as you get older, your requirement for particular nutrients actually increases. This is because your body is not able to produce or absorb as much as it once did.

But the only way to truly understand what your body needs to perform at its best is to have a full supplement review based on dietary history as well as laboratory testing, in the context of taking a full health history. As part of your initial consultation at Shine Clinic and also during subsequent follow up visits, this is exactly what will be happening.


Skin Care and Supplement Review Strategies

In addition to simply finding the best supplements to ensure you are healthy, many skin care regimes will be enhanced with the right supplements as part of the treatment. Promoting healing and encouraging the development of healthy collagen is only a part of why we encourage you to consider including a supplement review and strategy as part of your planned skin care treatment. Many of our treatments are more successful when done as a complement to the right supplement strategy. One of our most popular treatments, MedContour, is more effective when supplements to promote lymphatic drainage and the metabolising of fat are included in the treatment series.

Why Quality Matters

Here are Shine Clinic we use only pharmaceutical grade supplements for all of our programs. This is important because we want you to know exactly what you are taking and you can only be assured of this when taking the best quality supplements. While off the shelf supplements may be less expensive, the brands that we stock are guaranteed to be of the highest quality. These include:

  • Metagenics
  • Thorne
  • MD Nutritionals
  • Orthoplex.

By supplying you with only the highest grade of supplements we can ensure that the program we devise for you will have the best possible outcome.

Who can have this treatment?

While taking supplements, especially vitamins, is a fairly widespread practice these days, it is never a good idea to do so without first consulting a medical professional. Some supplements can be harmful when taken in excess or can interact with certain prescription medications. Some people have allergy considerations. At Shine Clinic, we take into consideration all aspects of your health and do not recommend supplements unless it is safe and there is evidence to do so. It is important for any supplement program to be simple to follow and not too complicated.

What should I expect during treatment?

A supplement program is usually part of an overall treatment plan. We are aiming for optimal health and energy levels. Initial recommendations may be modified as requirements change and deficiencies are corrected.

Are there side effects or risks involved?

It is very rare to have any side effects to any supplements when prescribed by a medical professional. However, occasionally allergies can cause problems as well as gastric intolerance to certain components.

Complementary Treatments

Many of the treatments we perform at Shine Clinic are enhanced when the correct supplements are taken along with the treatment. MedContour, as well as all of our skin rejuvenation treatments can achieve improved results when the right supplements are taken in conjunction with the treatments. To know exactly which supplements enhance which treatments, contact us for a consultation with Dr Kathy Gallagher today.
