Good nutrition is one of the key factors in obtaining optimal health and well-being. That’s a pretty safe statement. Without the proper fuel - the proper nutrients – how can each organ of the body be expected to perform properly? Can a car function without the proper oil and gas? Certainly not well.
We think mainstream medicine is wonderful at treating disease. It’s emphasize, however, is not in the prevention of disease and disorders.
It makes a tremendous amount of sense to maximize the body’s potential to function optimally, and therefore reduce the chances of developing a preventable condition.
It’s no secret that poor nutrition is a major contributor to a wide range of health disorders. Although most people are aware of the benefits of sound nutrition, the range of conflicting information available to the consumer is often confusing. What is good nutrition anyways? Do I have a sensitivity to dairy? What about gluten? Do I have too many processed foods in my diet? Can I do anything to help my chronic condition? My chronic fatigue? My immune system?
