Protocols & Outcomes: Using Daily Essential Nutrients in Clinical Practice

Posted on : February 17, 2020 by Hardy Nutritionals® No Comments

Dr. Janet Settle, an integrative psychiatrist based in Denver, Colorado has a unique approach when it comes to helping patients with mood swings, focus, and anxiety.  Using a combination of methods, Dr. Settle specifically works to address the root cause or underlying reason for patients' symptoms.  One of the treatments she recommends regularly to her patients is Hardy Nutritionals® Daily Essential Nutrients.

In this video, Dr. Settle discusses the protocols and outcomes she has experienced in her practice using Daily Essential Nutrients with patients.

Dr. Settle has been in private practice for over 25 years.  She is an integrative psychiatrist and was in the first-ever class of physicians that was Board Certified by the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine.  She has written several textbook chapters on the safety and efficacy of using nutritional supplements in mental health.  She wrote a chapter surveying all the research evidence for a variety of nutritional supplements used in mental health, which is how she learned about Hardy Nutritionals' Daily Essential Nutrients.

"I routinely use Daily Essential Nutrients for anybody who has trouble with irritability, with temper, with distractibility, racing thoughts, or mood swings...I will reach for those without hesitation in almost everyone I see who comes in with that kind of symptom pattern." - Dr. Janet Settle

When it comes to dosing, Dr. Settle starts patients out with two capsules per day and increases each day by two capsules so that by day six, they're taking the target dose of 12 capsules per day.  Within the first week, she often begins to see benefits that gradually improve over time.

While patients initially recoil at the idea of taking 12 capsules per day, Dr. Settle tries to help patients get over that psychological hurdle.  She tells patients to space their doses out according to their personal schedule, such as with meals or before and after work.  She finds that patients are typically pleased to get such a positive result once they stick to the regimen. 

Dr. Settle does have some patients who take both Daily Essential Nutrients and psychiatric medications together. "One of the things I really like about the product is that I have the freedom to use both and I don't feel like I have to rush people off of their medications unless there is some medical reason that they need to be in a hurry," she says.

Throughout her decades of experience, Dr. Settle knows that psychiatric medications have their place.  She shares, "I'm not one of the integrative medicine people who's on a big crusade to eliminate all psychiatric medications because I know too well from the inside after 25 years of doing this that there's a really important place and role for psychiatric medications in all of these treatments. That being said, there's...a stigma and people all day long are saying to me, 'How can I get off these meds?'...So it's nice to have something that I can offer to people that they're happy with."

One of the reasons that researchers have demonstrated such powerful outcomes using Daily Essential Nutrients is because it contains the therapeutic levels of each essential vitamin and mineral in a highly absorbable format.  Rather than addressing a single nutrient deficiency at a time, the broad-spectrum approach supports every biochemical reaction in the brain and body all at once.

In the video, Dr. Settle explains why supplementing properly matters.  "Whether you're blinking or you're thinking, your body needs biochemistry to make all that happen and every one of those biochemical reactions is dependent on one or more minerals or one or more vitamins.  If you're just going to say well let's take these rats and take all the magnesium out of their diet and see how they do, you're really not going to understand the whole spectrum of things that go into making an organism or a human healthy."

There are very few side effects associated with Daily Essential Nutrients across all the published research which has taken place at universities worldwide. There are also no withdrawal symptoms or dependency issues correlated with discontinuing Daily Essential Nutrients.  The research behind this unique broad-spectrum micronutrient formulation can be found here.

In regards to the research behind these powerful micronutrients, Dr. Settle says, "The research on these products is really fabulous. Double-blind placebo-controlled studies, big groups of people and statistically significant results...You just can use it as a free-standing thing. You can use it as an add-on to whatever else you're doing.  You can have people take both, you can use it to do a transitional taper...I'm a huge fan."

Daily Essential Nutrients is a broad-spectrum micronutrient supplement that includes over 40 micronutrients that are essential for optimal health.  It is available online and through select clinicians worldwide.  We highly recommend working with a health care practitioner who is familiar with micronutrients before starting Daily Essential Nutrients.  For questions, or to get started, call or text us at 855-955-1114.
