Nutrition

We have nutritional recommendations to meet your unique needs. After an initial assessment, one of our alternative and complimentary healthcare advisors will make recommendations that will align with your health and lifestyle goals. We will encourage you to take the steps needed to reclaim your health. Every disease label is associated with nutritional deficiencies or excesses; with appropriate nutrition, your body can return to a vibrant state.

Nutrition is the act of nourishing the whole body and mind, the act of supplying the nutrients which are necessary for the maintaining optimum health and vitality in every cell in the body. And correct nutrition has a normalizing or optimizing effect upon the body. Nutrition provides the foundation for all the body’s metabolic reactions and restorative processes. All the body’s hormonal systems, the immune system, and the energy production system are dependent upon an adequate supply of nutrients. So if the cells of the body are supplied with a less than optimum amount of any nutrient, the efficiency of the body may be impeded in some way.

It’s the natural, nourishing, normalizing and curative effects of nutrition which distinguish nutritional therapy from drug therapy. Unlike nutrients, drugs may conceal symptoms and intoxicate the body. Since drugs may stress or overload the detoxification systems of the body, they may detract from optimum health rather than contributing to it. For short term use the body usually tolerates them. Long term use may cause health challenges for some individuals. Nutrients, on the other hand, are an absolutely fundamental part of normality and optimum health.

Science teaches us that it’s within the cells and mitochondria that the countless chemical reactions occur which determine our overall level of health and well-being. It is here that your body’s need for nutrients in optimum amounts is greatest. To attempt to treat an illness by using toxic foreign chemicals, without first addressing any deviation in proper cellular nutrient levels, represents not just a departure from science; it’s also a total departure from basic common sense. In keeping with these facts, we must also acknowledge the futility of attempting to assess nutritional status by measuring nutrient levels in the blood, as if blood levels offer some kind of guarantee that optimum amounts of nutrients will therefore be constantly delivered to all the billions of cells in the body. We cannot move forward until we accept the extreme crudity of such tests and the untested assumptions upon which interpretation of such test results are based.

Over-acidity of our body chemistry may be the leading cause of many degenerative chronic diseases. As we age, our body’s ability to produce enzymes and vitamins necessary to run our metabolism and physiology in the optimal way decreases. This situation, together with our modern lifestyle and acidic diet, progressively renders our body over-acidic. Acidosis, or body over-acidity, impairs our metabolism, our physiology and our immune system, and over time it brings, as a consequence, most degenerative chronic diseases: acid reflux, arthritis, Candida infections, obesity, osteoporosis, premature aging and many more. Incorporating as many raw foods as possible into your diet, along with juicing and smoothies, may be a way to dramatically improve your health, no matter what your current health condition is.
However, you should be aware that when incorporating new raw foods into your lifestyle, you’re bound to experience some raw food cleansing symptoms. Though they may be uncomfortable for a short time, your body is getting more nourishment than it used to get, and with that nourishment, it has the strength to heal itself.

Detoxification or cleansing means removing unhealthy elements from your body. When these toxins are tucked inside your cells, they interfere with the cellular chemistry and decrease your body’s energy production. But when they come out of the cell, they come back into contact with the nerves. This irritates the nerves and you feel it!

When toxins enter the body, your body gave you a sign that something was wrong. Maybe you had a headache or a runny nose; whatever the symptom, it was your body’s way of telling you that your systems were out of balance. By ignoring that sign or taking some kind of medication to “cure” the symptom, you weren’t allowing your body to heal itself.

Over the years, more and more toxins have been added and been stored in your cells. This range of toxins, interfering with the natural processes of your body’s cells, can cause a multitude of problems, ranging from simple colds to more serious illnesses, even cancer.

When you start the process of providing your body with optimum nutrition by eating nutrient-rich food, your body may easily expel toxins. Unfortunately, as the toxins leave the body, those signs may come back. It’s important at this point to allow your body to go through the whole detox process and aid it by drinking more water to help flush them out.

Chelators are organic compounds that clean out a person’s physiology so that a more normal neurochemistry and cellular respiration can occur. Lodged within our bodies is an accumulation of residue and toxins from the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. And no amount of correct nutrition can be effective within a toxic environment, as toxins are destructive to the synthesis of neurochemistry, biochemistry and cellular metabolism. These toxic conditions leave a person in a weakened state and lead to drug cravings, anxiety, and depression. They also allow for infectious conditions to persist and have been responsible for psychosis. Through the use of chelation and other neurotoxin removal techniques, individuals can safely and successfully remove these toxins from their bodies, as well as removing the harmful toxins left behind by prescription medications or drug abuse. Common detox symptoms are cravings, fatigue, irritability and physical pains. You should always consult with your licensed healthcare provider if you have any concerns.
