Nutrient Rich Whole Food Is Nature’s Medicine

There is a difference between nutrient rich foods and isolated chemical nutrients. Have you ever thought about this? Nutrient rich foods are naturally grown, minimally processed, and enjoyed; isolated chemical nutrients are made in a laboratory and sold in a bottle with the word “nature” or “natural” on it along with beautiful images of nature. People purchase chemically isolated nutrients because they believe that vitamin A, B, C, D and/or E can help them. The problem is that chemically isolated nutrients are not natural at all and are not absorbed and utilized by the body like vitamins and minerals found in whole food form. Science cannot outsmart Mother Nature.

Why do we need whole food supplements

Lacking in the Basics

Our Western diets, high in processed foods and low in vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, keep our bodies from getting the nutrients nesecary to thrive. Deficiencies decrease our health and increase our risk of disease. One of the tenents of Functional Nutrition, a  a common-sense approach to health based on the philosophy that food is medicine, is that diseases are caused by nutritional gaps in our diet. An example of this is from the 1800’s when the British Navy added limes and lemons to the diets of their sailors to prevent death by scurvey? This is why sailors earned the name “Limeys”. 

Today, we are fortunate to have the legacy of Dr. Royal Lee, the founder of Standard Process, an organic farm in Wisconsin that specializes in nutient rich supplements made from organic whole food ingredients. “One of the biggest tragedies of human civ ilization is the precedence of chemical therapy over nutrition.” – Dr. Royal Lee, Founder of Standard Process.To learn more about this brilliant man, who was a champion for the nature first, drugs last philosophy, enjoy reading this booklet, The-Story-of-Dr-Royal-Lee

Healthy Eating from Early to Late Summer

Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM is all about balance. In this ancient system, the key to health is to move through the world in such a way that our bodies can remain in homeostasis, in balance. This idea connects to sleep patterns, what we eat and ultimately the flow of Qi, or energy, throughout the body. For that reason, healthy eating in summertime, according to TCM, is all about using cooling foods to balance out how hot it is outside. In other words, we can find homeostasis from the inside out. continue reading »
