Holistic Nutrition Consulting
Staying healthy in our modern industrialized world can be a difficult and confusing affair. Many people have experienced a genuine disconnect to our dependance on nature as the source of our nutrition, resulting in a society plagued with chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and fatty liver disease.
The food we eat, the environment we live in, and the physical and emotional stress we experience on a daily basis have a cumulative effect on our health. Chronic health issues do not arise quickly, they are slow to develop and often even slower to manifest in our daily lives, and when they do they are often complicated by other health issues that arise because the body has been taken out balance. Often these health issues are worsened as they are masked by medications that are not designed to treat the root cause of the issue, but rather mask the symptoms.
"When a plant's leaves are turning yellow, you don't paint the leaves green. You look at the cause of the problem. If only we treated our bodies the same way!"
Dr. Frank Lipman
Understanding the healing power of nutrition is fundamental to good health. For millions of years our ancestors thrived on the foods of the earth and the nutrients they supplied to keep their bodies and minds healthy. It is only in recent history that our diets have been altered to a point that many of the foods we ingest are not food at all, but rather "food like" products that are manufactured and sold for the benefit of the processed food industry, not the people consuming them.
Eating natural foods and living a balanced lifestyle are the keys to maintaining good health, but this isn't always easy in our hustle bustle world. Food decisions are often based on convenience rather than nutritional content, and the lack of time to dedicate to our physical and mental health all contribute to health issues that could be avoided. We are exposed to more information than ever to help us in our quest to be healthy, but our society is sicker than ever.
Your health is an investment, not an expense. Although ,it will become an expense if you don't take the time to invest in it now.
