Single Supplement Remedies

Too often I see recommendations for disorders that involve many supplements, sometimes costing hundreds of dollars per month. I wanted to come up with a list of ailments often alleviated by a single supplement, preferably an inexpensive one. Consider these recommendations are only what I would do for myself and will not recommend these for anyone else to use. It is for information purposes only and to give people a starting place to do their own research. Please contribute any reliable recommendations that you have found and I will add them to the list!

It is generally recommended to drink plenty of water, preferably as in the Water Cure. Drinking enough water is crucial to many of the recommendations below.
