Nutrition/Lifestyle

Nutrition is the foundation of our health, and the cornerstone of our treatment plans. Everything we put into our mouth in the form of food or drink, including drugs and supplements, results in changes in our biochemistry and physiology that will either contribute to health or disease. Today, people eat far too many of the foods that lack adequate nutrition, such as processed, dead (lacking enzymes), pre-packaged, or GMO ladened foods. We call this the Standard American Diet (SAD).This style of eating contributes to nutrient deficiencies, and is a major causative factor in a variety of preventable diseases, including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer.

"The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison"
