Nutritional Therapy

"The length of life is inversely proportional to the rate of exhaustion of the enzyme potential of the organism. The increased use of food enzymes promotes a decreased rate of exhaustion of the enzyme potential." -Enzyme Nutrition Axiom by Dr. Edward Howell

Health builds on the following biochemical foundations:

  • Diet
  • Digestion
  • Blood sugar balance
  • Mineral balance
  • Fatty acid balance
  • Hydration

Weakness in any of the six foundations leads to degenerative health problems that plague the modern world.

Diet

Did you know that...

  • Americans spend $110 billion on fast food each year, investing more money in fast food than on higher education, new cars and movies!
  • Most industrially grown chicken and half of industrially grown beef in America contain carcinogenic properties
  • Oranges tested in Florida by the FDA showed virtually no vitamin C

"When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need." - Ayurvedic Proverb

Do you truly know what is in your food and how it affects your day to day life?

A properly prepared, nutrient-dense diet provides ultimate foundation that leads to optimal health and wellness.

"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." - Hippocrates

Digestion

"All Diseases Begin In the Gut." - Hippocrates

Did you know that...

  • Your small intestine absorbs 80% of the nutrients from your food. If the food is not broken down properly and absorbed in your small intestine, you will not receive vital nutrients to sustain health.
  • 90 percent of Americans produce too little HCL (acidic substance released in the stomach to break down the food). The ideal PH of your stomach in order to break down your food is 1.5-3.0.
Blood Sugar Balance

Did you know that...

  • The predication for children born after the year 2000 is that 1 out of 3 will develop Type II Diabetes, lifestyle onset diabetes.
  • The average American ingests over 170 pounds of refined sugar per year, which is 14 pounds per month, and 8 ounces per day.
  • Sugar more than anything else adds unwanted pounds to our bodies, breaks down our immune system, and leads to adrenal exhaustion.
Mineral Balance

Your Nutritional Therapist tests mineral levels in order to find out what minerals are lacking.

Did you know that...

  • Minerals facilitate the transfer of nutrients across the cell membranes.
  • Minerals need to be in balance with each other.
  • Minerals maintain the proper nerve conduction.
  • Minerals are important for heart health; they contract and relax muscles in the body.
  • Zinc Therapy has been shown to improve sperm count in men with low counts.
  • 41% (9 out of 22) of previously infertile couples conceived during the course of a zinc therapy study.
Hydration

What is the nutrient most lacking in people today?

Water.

Your body survives 8 weeks without food but only days without water.

Water composes 55-60% of our total body mass! What role does water play in the body?

  • Improves oxygen delivery to cells
  • Transport nutrients
  • Enables cellular hydration
  • Moistens oxygen for easier breathing
  • Cushions bones and joints
  • Absorbs shocks to joints and organs
  • Regulates body temperature
  • Removes wastes
  • Flushes toxins
  • Prevents tissues from sticking
  • Lubricates joints
  • Improves cell-to-cell communications
  • Maintains normal electrical properties of cells
  • Empowers the body's natural healing process
Essential Fatty Acids

Do you crave French fries or other fried foods? If so, you may be deficient in essential fatty acids. A sufficient amount of fat per meal triggers the satiation mechanism in the brain, helping to curb sugar cravings.

Fatty Acid deficiency has reached epidemic proportions America, resulting in major dysfunctions in the endocrine, cardiovascular, and immune systems.

Fats...

  • Provide a source of energy
  • Make up cell membranes
  • Build good brain health

In fact, eating healthy fats may be part of the solution to shedding unwanted pounds.
