There has long been a raging debate in the natural health care profession concerning the issue of whether a person should get all their nutritional needs from Whole Foods or is it ok to take highly dense and specific nutrient supplementation?
I love listening to experts in this debate… I get to hear and discern the opinion of nutritional PhD plant based medicinal biochemists and PhD’s liked me, as well as the opinion and Wisdom of Traditional doctors of Naturopathy, again like me. I love to listen to my peers. In the end you will have to decide for yourself what you feel and come to know is best for you.
I am always being told by various factions that my two areas of some 30 plus years of expertise in natural medicine and science do not mesh, and you know what, sometimes they don’t, but far more often they do mesh very elegantly.
A hundred years ago, I would say all you need to do is eat lots of whole raw foods and drink plenty of water, get some moderate sunshine so your body can make Vitamin D and you should live a long and healthy life. The proof that I would be correct is that folks from that time like my grandmother grew up on a farm and had access to plenty of raw foods lived to be 100 old. If we look deeply into this subject we will find that people who lived on farms a 100 years ago and folks who lived near farms and could buy their foods directly from very local farms, lived long and healthy lives.
A hundred years ago farm lands were rich in top soil and contained all the micronutrients like selenium; perhaps the most cancer preventing agent ever discovered; but unfortunately that was a very long time ago. Today all the farms are owned by massive corporations and farming is now both mechanized and assembly line industries. There are no micronutrients left in the soil anymore, they have all been leached out by the methods of modern day over farming of the land. Everything has been sprayed with synthetic chemical herbicides and pesticides so as to glean maximum yield. Even the Macro minerals are missing from the soil in most cases so that we now have the richest country on earth, but we have an entire population of people with nutritional deficiencies; one would expect to find in a very third world country.
There is a sector of the economy in the USA which is growing even faster than the big Pharmaceutical companies which is the Natural Health food and Nutrient, Nutraceutical industry. I wonder why?
I take a fantastic Multi-Vitamin, Mineral, and Anti-Oxidant formula every day made by a real Bio-Technology company which only specializes in nutritional and Nutraceutical supplements.
With both ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 Lab. Certification they are my number one choice in the world for purity and potency and integrity in how they make their supplements. They have over 1000 separate supplement formulations so I almost have after 30 plus years in this field a one stop shop that I can always Trust. I use no more than 7 companies for my particular needs and I will be naming them and showing you how to purchase from them soon.
The other reason for Supplementation is if you are in the care of a true expert in this field, you can have a custom made program of Nutritional and Nutraceutical supplements to protect your cells and your body from diseases caused by all of the toxins in our foods and in the air and soil. The toxic level of environmental pollutants on land and sea is so high that one needs to know how to deactivate them with proper supplements made from all natural sources…which means bio-medicinal plant based supplements.
Much more on this subject will be coming to you in the days and weeks ahead so keep coming back to the place where NATURAL HEALTH WISDOM is the difference which makes all the difference.
