Taking a supplement to fill a gap when you’re recovering from something can be highly beneficial and can also have other life-producing effects on the body if taken properly at the right time. But, when and how do you know if you’re caught in a supplement trap? Quantum Techniques (QT) practitioner Dr. Kristin Killops weighs in on this issue in The Supplement Trap.
In this video, you’ll learn that the supplement trap isn’t whether taking a supplement is good or bad for you, it’s about attitudes. It’s the erroneous attitudes Dr. Killops says that get people caught up in the supplement trap.
One of the attitudes Dr. Killops says to watch out for is the belief that the body is not able to heal itself without taking a drug or a supplement to produce a change on the inside. The other attitude is that it’s necessary to spend two to three hundred dollars worth of supplements each month to be healthy. The other most common attitude is that without these extras, the body can’t heal itself or isn’t going to get better. According to Dr. Killops, that is not true. She’ll talk about where your true source of health comes from later on in the video.
And, although it also sounds like Dr. Killops is against supplements, she’s not. “I’m not saying that supplements are bad,” Dr. Killops stated. “The right supplement at the right time can be really helpful for short periods of time.”
It’s just that not all supplements are good for you. For some people, certain supplements may actually be toxic. At QT, there is a way for practitioners to test supplements to make sure that they are good for you.
“At Quantum Techniques, we test various supplements because what we find is that a lot of supplements are challenging to the body,” Dr. Killops said. “[T]hey can actually be toxic to certain people or act as an energy toxin as well or it might work for one and might not be appropriate for another.”
If the supplements are toxic, they add to your body’s toxin load making it harder for the body to do its job. Some supplements are just downright not harmonizing with your body’s constitutions and energies. Rather than gaining any real benefits from the supplements, your body ends up working harder to assimilate and digest the supplement into a form the body can use.
So what do you do if you know you really need to take a supplement but you’re not sure if it is good for you? As mentioned previously, QT practitioners have a way of making sure that what you’re taking is highly beneficial and that the supplements work in harmony with your body.
How Dr. Killops, QT founders and the rest of the QT staff practitioners test supplements for their clients is through muscle-testing, also known as applied kinesiology, where practitioners access the body’s higher intelligence to detect whether a product tests as an energy toxin that causes a disruption in the person’s energy field or not.
Not only that, Dr. Killops mentions in the video that QT practitioners also use a number scale from 1-10, with 10 being significantly helpful and 1 being significantly not helpful, to gauge whether the supplement will benefit the clients in any way.
If the supplement tests at a 3 or 4, it’s not worth spending the money on and taking something that’s not highly beneficial. However, if it’s a 9 or 10, it is worth considering to help get “your body back on track,” Dr. Killops said.
The objective of a practitioner is not to tell you whether to take a supplement or not, but to help you test for one that is absolutely best for you if you decide to take supplements. Existing QT clients who are familiar with the process usually have QT practitioners check what they’re taking, including new ones to be sure that they are not inadvertently adding energy toxins to their bodies after working so hard to reduce the toxin load.
To avoid the supplement trap, Dr. Killops strongly advises that you watch any attitudes you might have that tell you that you can’t be healthy or that you won’t be healed without taking something from the outside. To add to this, Dr. Craig Hopp of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), said: “There’s little evidence that any supplement can reverse the course of any chronic disease. Don’t take supplements with that expectation.”
This does not mean that you shouldn’t take supplements if you need them. It means to view a supplement for what it is: a supplement. A “supplement” based on Oxford Dictionary’s definitions are: a thing added to something to enhance it and a “substance taken to remedy the deficiencies in a person’s diet.” Knowing these definitions is important in the understanding that supplements are just that, to supplement and are not in any way a substitute for anything else especially eating real, whole, and fresh foods; foods you’re not sensitive to, of course. You may be deficient in a particular vitamin or mineral, but, often, the root cause is rarely a supplement issue.
Your true health, Dr. Killops says, comes from the Divine. It is Divine energy, which permeates all things that gives us our health. “It’s good to think about our body as being the effect of our mental/emotional energetic state as opposed to the cause of the problem,” Dr. Killops stated. So watch those attitudes. “At QT, we test what is truly necessary.” As for the rest? Dr. Killops said to “let your body do it. Your body really knows how to heal.”
