Amounts that are on the label are for maintenance.

Herring's law of cure - "All cures start from within out, from the head down, then in reverse order as the symptoms have appeared."
Develop a Schedule and Stick to It
Many people are accustomed to western medicine and expect immediate results. Drugs do not work on the cause of the problem; they only mask the symptoms and usually have side effects. Understand that time is your friend as your body goes through the healing process. Your symptoms will disappear as the causes are dealt with. Please don't get discouraged!
Most supplements you need to take 3 times per day, just like you eat three meals a day. Certain supplements may be used for energy to help the body get through the day. These will be what you will take only in the am and maybe at lunch.
It is easy to establish a routine. You may want to set up your supplements the night before or do them for week at a time. You can make some little cups and label them for AM, LUNCH and PM. If you need to take them with you place them into "Ziploc" baggies and mark with a permanet marker. This helps keep you on schedule.
Example: After taking your morning regimen before leavinga for work or another activity, take your lunch portion with you. When you get home take the PM portion with dinner. Taking them before or with meals helps them go down more easily. Remember that supplements cannot withstand heat or direct sunlight. Cool, dry places will work very well, so be careful where you store them - especially probiotics which should be kept in the refrigerator or freezer.
Things Always Change
Growing older, moving into a new environment, new job stress, traveling more, diet and other situations (positive or negative) may constitute change. Constantly monitoring your progress towards existing goals can give you the flexibility to progress towards consistent or increased health. Call your health care professional for help in making these assessments on a periodic basis.
One last note: absorption of supplements may be a problem for some people. By taking a digestive enzyme such a Food Enzymes and/or PDA could be the answer to this problem while on your supplement plan.
By following these steps and educating yourself on your situation and the best supplements for you will go a long way toward getting you better health.
