From her experience as a highly respected herbalist, with her background in studying natural medicine, Dr. Tieraona Low Dog places high importance on nutrition.
She recommends that women take a multivitamin to try to fill any gaps in their health and nutrition. She specifies calcium and vitamin D for bones, folic acid for our hearts, for reproduction and for babies' health. Low folate levels can be a factor in depression. Antioxidants are also very important for good health.
Dr. Low Dog believes that each woman has unique needs in terms of her health and nutrition. Each woman has her own health issues, and should take them all into consideration as she makes decisions about nutrition and supplements.
