Hi everyone! It’s Linsy from LTYG. Being involved in natural healing can sometimes mean taking a LOT of supplements. If you know – you know!! And if you’ve already read Jini’s post on how to navigate around confusing supplement schedules, you know there can be a lot to remember. When do you take which supplements? Do you take on an empty stomach or with food?

Well today I’ve got you covered! In this video I created for you, I’ll be showing you all the tricks and tips that I use to navigate my supplement routine – and make it EASIER.

Here are the supplements I mention in this video:
Natren Probiotics
Wild Oregano Oil
Olive leaf 
Aloe Vera
Slippery elm
Marshmallow Root
Elemental Diet/Absorb Plus

4 Tips to help simplify your supplement schedule:

#1) Put your schedule on paper! It’s important to have your goals on paper, as it can help you remember when to take it. For example, you can write out something like, “9 am supplement x, y, and z with breakfast!” Writing it down helps it stick in my head.

Either way, do what whatever you need to remember! Make a physical copy, or save your text in your phone/computer so you can refer back to it as needed.

#2) Know your strategy. What I mean by this is you need to know basic information regarding the supplement(s) you are taking, as well as how you can build it around your lifestyle. Here’s an example from Jini, but once you get familiar with the do’s and don’ts you can take them on a schedule which works best for you:

  • Probiotics need to be taken completely on their own, at LEAST 2 hours away from any antibiotic or anti-pathogen (such as wild oregano, potentized garlic, olive leaf, etc). For maximum efficacy, take your probiotics 20 minutes before food or 2 hours after food – UNLESS you are using Natren 3-in-1 Healthy Trinity.
  • Healthy Trinity capsules are not powdered. They contain 3 strains which are individually encapsulated within an oil matrix formulation, so they need to be taken with food to help break down the capsule and distribute the good bacteria.
  • Wild oregano oil is best taken on an empty stomach, and it can be combined with any healing type of substance that also requires an empty stomach (aloe vera, MucosaCalm, slippery elm, marshmallow root, etc.). It also needs to be taken 20 minutes before food, or 2 hours after food – but make sure it is taken at LEAST 2 hours away from probiotics, or it can kill off the good bacteria.

Note: Immune booster herbs like astragalus are most potent on an empty stomach. They can be taken together with wild oregano, aloe vera, MucosaCalm, etc., but make sure to take away from probiotics.

#3) Set alarms on your phone. Setting alarms on your phone can help when you are beginning your healing journey, as remembering everything can become overwhelming.

#4) Find ways to simplify! One great thing about Absorb Plus is that some supplements can be added directly into your shakes. For example, if you are supplementing with Udo’s oil (which Jini recommends when exclusively on an elemental diet, as Absorb Plus is very low in fat), you can actually open the capsules and dump them in the blender with your shake, saving you time – and also saving from having to swallow another pill!
