Nutrition

Nutrition is something that simultaneously intrigues and confuses most of us. It is hard to know what to eat and how to properly supplement your diet when there are so many conflicting experts out there. Should I be vegan? Paleo? Low carb? Low fat? Will saturated fat cause a heart attack? What diet does Chinese medicine prescribe? My doctor says not to eat….

Yes. It’s confusing! There are lots of opinions and a lot of conflicting research. Unfortunately, many health care providers take no more than one very basic class in nutrition. Good nutrition advice comes from practitioners who continuously study nutrition and stay current in their studies. In this nutrition section, you will find one consistent message, “Eat real food, not food products; choose diverse, fresh, nutrient-dense foods; and supplement with whole food supplements (not conventional synthetic vitamins) to fill in the gaps.” This goal can be accomplished with many different dietary strategies. If you are not sure where to start, schedule a personalized dietary therapy session with us today!
