Nutrition

Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to heal itself. To do so, we need to eat a healthier diet, exercise, and take high-quality supplements made from whole foods.

Plants are only as nutritious as the soil they are grown in . Unfortunately due to commercial farming, the soil has become depleted of many essential nutrients and minerals. Furthermore, commercial agriculture uses many pesticides and herbicides that are toxic to the human body. Eating a healthy diet simply isn't enough any more.  

We provide our patients with nutritional and dietary recommendations on a case-by-case basis. We also offer nutritional cleanses as needed to help with certain medical conditions.  

Why Do We Need Supplements?

It is almost necessary to do some form of nutritional supplementation nowadays. Why? Because the nutritional content of food has diminished over the past 40 years. Conventional farming, leveraging synthetic fertilizers and mono-cropping has stripped the soil of its nutrients. As a result, we are not getting the nutrients from our food that we used to. Pollution and toxins in our environment also create the need for an increased number of nutrients to sustain us. Furthermore we have moved away from traditional ways of eating so important foods like organ meats which provide vital building blocks are not eaten commonly any longer.

What is Whole Food Supplementation?

The goal of all whole food supplementation is to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature. After all, it is in this whole food state that nutrition is best absorbed and utilized by the body. Most vitamins available to the public are synthetic meaning they are made from chemicals that the body doesn't recognize and can't properly use.   Not only do they not benefit the body but can add to the toxic load.  

Whole food supplements supply our bodies with nutrients we are not getting from our diet—all the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients that foods possess in a way that nature intended, in a whole food form.
