Single Supplement Remedies
Too often I see recommendations for disorders that involve many supplements, sometimes costing hundreds of dollars per month. I wanted to come up with a list of ailments often alleviated by a single supplement, preferably an inexpensive one. Consider these recommendations are only what I would do for myself and will not recommend these for anyone else to use. It is for information purposes only and to give people a starting place to do their own research. Please contribute any reliable recommendations that you have found and I will add them to the list!
