What is your poison?

I know I can be a bit of a herb and supplement junkie, and I am always on about fish oil, magnesium, multi's etc, however I though it was time to post about another of my must haves; herbal tonics.

I prescribe tonics for most of my clients, and have them go to a Naturopath to get specialised tonic made for them. I have to admit they don't taste the best and most of my client's refer to them as "poison".

I recently ran out of my tonic and after about 1 week I was feeling a little flatter than usual. It didn't occur to me at the time that the 2 were connected, however after getting a new concoction made up it was obvious that my tonic does provide that "little bit extra" that I need to get through my life with utmost energy.

My Naturopath changes my tonic every 2 months or when I need different types of support. If I am going through a stressful time she adds adrenal support herbs, and when the need is more physical she pulls out the big guns like tribulus to make me strong.

If you have never tried a tonic, and think you could do with that "little bit extra", I suggest you visit your local health food store and order a tonic!
