Nutrition

"Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food."  Hippocrates

 

Good nutrition is vital to health. It gives the body the necessary components to rebuild itself. The importance of a healthy balanced diet has never changed, but the ability to achieve this goal has become more difficult.

Frightening To Contemplate - Important To Know 

'Todays nutrient-depleted soils produce fruits and vegetables with substandard levels of vitamins and minerals. Irradiation, pesticides, GMO's and preservatives have altered our food.  Cooking, canning, freezing and micro-waving lead to further nutrient depletion.  Foods are devoid of enzymes and nutrients.  The body is left lacking.'

I become a vegetarian in 1975 and am mostly vegan.  Eating organically is on the top of my list.  I didn't take any nutritional supplements until 2005.  At that time I had a nutritional microscopy, a live blood cell analysis, and though I received high marks, I took the recommendation to add supplements.  I'm glad I did.  My energy levels increased and the incidence of colds and the flu didn't just decrease, they disappeared.

My recovery from multiple health challenges due to environmental toxins included a de-toxification process.  Using high quality supplements to get the bad out and put the good in, I have had excellent results.  I continue to feed and nourish my body to maintain, flourish and thrive.    

I don't consider nutritional supplementation as something 'extra.'  As organic whole-foods, they are part of my grocery bill.  And, as an investment in my wellbeing, they are part of my health insurance policy.

Not all supplements are created equal, which is why I've included a lot of factual information here.  In fact, taking no supplement is better than taking a poor one. Why?  Poor supplements often contain fillers, such as shampoo, glue, powder and sawdust.  These toxins are linked to causing cancer and other conditions. 

Balance is best.  Eat consciously and healthfully.  Use high quality, organic-based, wholefood supplements to fill in the gaps and target specific needs.    Read on....

 

 

Did you ever notice that other than fresh produce, much of what's in the grocery store is simply another form of fast food?  Did you ever finish a meal only to be hungry 30 minutes later? Our bodies are craving nutrients not food. The USDA reported that 92% of Americans do not receive sufficient nutrients from their food for optimal health."

 

"As a population, we are over fed and under nourished. Calories are ever plentiful, yet nutrients are not."

Types Of Supplements

  1. Synthetic Supplements are entirely man made. They are often referred to as "isolated" or "fractionated" pieces of the whole and they do not give the full benefit that is necessary for vital nutrition.
  2. Natural Supplements involve extracting various compounds from natural sources. While the source of the vitamins may be natural (calcium from milk and vitamin C from oranges) the extraction process subtly changes the molecular structure of the product and it is no longer in its natural state. If "some" of the product is natural, even if there are synthetic components added, the product may be labeled "natural" without labeling the synthetic ingredients.
  3. Whole Food Supplements give the benefits of the WHOLE food, which includes ALL of the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes that are naturally occurring. The bulky fiber and water from the fruit, vegetable or plant are removed in a way that does not disturb the balance and synergy of the natural product.
  4. Pharmaceutical Grade refers to the strictest manufacturing standards for purity and concentration that prescription medications are required to meet - 98% accuracy as tested by an independent laboratory. Other supplements (food grade) often have less stringent testing and varying levels of concentration and potency have been found from pill to pill.
  5. Bioavailability ensures that your body absorbs an optimal amount of nutrients. Better nutrient absorption means greater health benefits.
