Integrated Nutrition Improves Wellness
A natural food diet is imperative in order to be healthy. Natural foods that I recommend are:
- Fresh chicken that is free-range and is raised without the use of growth-hormones or antibiotics
- Beef, in small quantities, that has also been allowed to freely graze and has been raised without the use of hormones or antibiotics
- Fresh fish
- Fresh vegetables
- Fresh fruit
- Fresh-squeezed juices
- Herbal teas
Highly processed foods and foods containing sugar substitutes such as aspartame are considered toxic. They have been known to cause health problems including aggravating the symptoms of gastric reflux disease and fibromyalgia.
Medical problems such as food allergies, sinusitis, and tinnitus
, can be treated and cured by following a holistic therapy process that not only includes natural chiropractic cures and treatment, but also incorporates Chinese therapies such as acupressure, exercise such as static yoga, and dietary changes that incorporate the principles of integrated nutrition.
Each person who comes to me for nutritional counseling
will be given a diet based on his or her lifestyle. I realize that dietary changes can be hard to make. We will work with you to plan a nutritional regimen that is not only healthy, but one that tastes good also.
Not everyone can go strictly organic due to the rising cost of food. That is why I am trained to know which foods are affected by processing and hormones. Working with this knowledge, we will help you plan a food budget that is within your means.
Another thing I can help you with is teaching you how to prepare fun, healthy, meals that encompass the therapeutic value of this approach to nutrition. Today's society has become too dependent on fast-food and convenience foods. Learning how to quickly prepare simple, healthy meals will not only save you and your family money, but will also improve your health.
I take a holistic treatment approach to treating all our patients, and approach each patient with the understanding that we need to focus on more than just the complaint, illness or injury. We also need to take into account a patients' mind, body, and spirit as a whole. Rather than just treating a specific part of your body, I treat you as a whole person and as an individual. All health problems are combined and the best treatment to any problem or illness is contained within combined mental and physical aspects of the body. Nutrition therapy exists, just as physical and mental therapy exists.
When humans were created, our genetic code was designed for us to eat and process and use as energy, whole grains, nuts, fruits, berries, fish, fowl, and beef that was grown naturally without the use of pesticides or methods to increase the size of our food. As technology developed, foods began to be processed in order to give food a longer "shelf-life."
Processing enabled food to be safely stored. Then processors began to add things to our food in order to mass-produce more food at a time. They added fillers, hormones, antibiotics, chemicals, and nitrates to our food. We began to consume imitation fruit, imitation nuts, imitation sugars, and suddenly cases of cancer, diabetes, food allergies, blood pressure, and heart disease increased. Our genetic code was never designed to handle and process artificial ingredients.
