Core Four Supplementation Guide

Core Four SupplementationAt Thrive Chiropractic our focus is to improve nervous system function through our unique Neuro-Tonal approach. By correcting the underlying problem, our patients experience improvement in many secondary conditions. To further support optimal health and the process of healing, we highly recommend eating a nutritious diet and taking high quality supplements. Having the proper nutrients and building blocks of health will exponentially increase your results!

Unfortunately, even the most carefully selected foods can leave nutrient voids in today’s world. Through overuse and improper practices, the soil does not have the same nutrients that it used to. An apple today is not the same as it was 100 year ago! (As a side note, this is another reason why we would encourage you to support local organic farmers when at all possible.) When also considering the highly processed and artificial nature of much of the standard American diet, it’s easy to see why we can greatly benefit from the use of some basic supplementation to fill these gaps and bring balance.

We refer to these Core Four supplements as the baseline that we take and recommend as a starting point for our patients. The goal of these supplements is to support optimal function and improve health, not treat any specific disease or condition. We are simply providing the body what it needs in order to heal and thrive so that you receive the greatest results from your care at Thrive. While different and more specific supplements can be utilized to support the specific challenges someone is facing, this is always our starting point.

In order to ensure that our patients are receiving the highest quality nutrients, we offer what we know are high quality sources of each of these Core Four products.


A multivitamin provides a wide range of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that are needed to support optimal health. It is crucial that a multivitamin provides the nutrients in their natural forms and is free from artificial colors and fillers. We don’t want our supplements to contain ingredients that are harmful to our health! We have a specific product for each phase and age of life.

Adult Male: PhytoMulti 2 tablets/day with food
Adult Female (menstruating years): PhytoMulti w/ Iron 2 tablets/day with food
Prenatal: Baby & Me 2 tablets/day with food
Pediatric (4+ yrs): Kids SuperNutes 2-4/day with food


Omega-3 supplementation (often referred to as fish oil) is both a requirement for optimal health as well as important in the prevention of illnesses such as heart disease, arthritis, ADHD, depression, cancer, diabetes, eczema, learning and cognitive development problems, and more. It is crucial to have an Omega-3 supplement that is in its natural form and has been purified to remove any toxic materials. We offer Innate Choice Omega Sufficiency in either liquid (refrigerate after opening) or capsule format.

Dosage: ½ teaspoon or 2 capsules per 40 lbs. of body weight
*** Liquid Omega Sufficiency can be easily added to younger kids’ foods without them noticing!


Did you know that our body contains at least as many bacterial cells as it does your own cells? The specific types of bacterial strains that are proliferating in your gastrointestinal system play a large role in the function of your nervous system, immune system, digestion, and symptoms such as feeling bloated. Since our diets don’t contain many naturally occurring probiotics (such as would be found in fermented foods), it is important to support the proper growth and development of the beneficial strains through supplementation. The products we offer from Klaire Labs contain high quantities of the most beneficial strains.

Adults: Ther-biotic Complete 1 capsule/day with food
Pediatric (2+): Ther-Biotic Children’s Chewable 1 tablet/day 30-60 minutes after food
Infant: Ther-Biotic for infants until 12 months: 1 scoop/day; 12+ months: 1 scoop 1-2x/day

Powder can be mixed into beverages or room temperature solid foods. Nursing mothers can add powder to expressed milk or place a small amount on the nipple.

Vitamin D

The more research that is done on vitamin D, the more we realize how crucial and impactful it is. While we would all be best off receiving our daily dose of vitamin d by spending ample amount of time in the sun with a significant portion of our skin exposed, that is not reality for most people. This is especially true for those of us living in a northern climate where very little time is spent outside for much of the year. As inadequate levels of vitamin D has been associated with conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, colds, autoimmune disorders, arthritis, fibromyalgia, depression, chronic pain, and more, it is highly important to maintain sufficient levels. Innate Choice D Sufficiency provides a high quality vitamin D in an economical and easy to use fashion.

Adults: 5,000 IU/day with food
Children: 1,000 IU/day per 25 lbs. of body weight, taken with food
Infants: 1,000 IU/day (drops can be placed on nipple)
