Are you suffering from a nutrient deficiency? Very likely yes!
Food is the fuel that energizes our body for work, play and healing. It is the source of our vitality and contains all substances necessary for the regulation of all our bodily processes.
Human life has advanced for eons using nothing more than natural foods from plants and animals, along with freshwater and clean air. But our environment has become very polluted. Most people live far removed from farms and have no gardens. Food is processed to allow for long distance transportation and a long shelf life, not nutritional content. Synthetic compounds are used to increase crop yields, to add flavor and to preserve food. Then we use synthetic vitamins and medications to treat deficiency diseases caused by depletion of life giving nutrients. What a vicious cycle!
What are synthetic compounds? Synthetic compounds are basically chemicals produced in a laboratory that are fake and artificial. They are not found in nature, they are the result of man-made alterations to nature. It seems that sooner or later most, if not all of these things that are compounds are found to cause some type of symptom pattern or disease. Even miracle drugs are found to be the cause of disease, degeneration and sometimes death, sooner or later.
People are suffering and taking medication to stop the suffering. Medications come with long list of side effects. One of the side effects appears to be nutritional deficiency. When a person is suffering from a nutritional deficiency or the side effects of pollution of our air, water or food, wholesome food is the answer, not more synthetic compounds. Better to treat the cause, not the symptoms!
Only 50 years ago, baby formula was considered equal to mother’s milk. Now it is laughable to think that people actually believed that a laboratory could make something equal to or better than Mother Nature. There are hundreds of nutrients, enzymes, co-enzymes, vitamins and minerals in mother’s milk. Things scientist don’t even know about yet and could not create if they did know about them are in mother’s milk and in all natural foods.
The point is mother’s milk is an example of nature’s perfection in the feeding of human babies. After we are weaned from our mother’s milk our nutrition quality goes downhill fast. Junk and fast foods don’t support health, only wholesome foods will.
I suspect that much of our suffering, disease and health deterioration is due to low quality nutritional support. We need to understand this and begin to make better choices which will build our health rather than tear it down.
The solution? Whole foods and whole food concentrates. We are now using only these types of products in our practice. We just came back from the actual organic farm in Wisconsin where these products are grown and produced. It was an amazing experience to say the least! If you need support with nutrition or suspect you may have nutrient deficiencies, please just ask, we are here to help!
