Oh, but what if one changed to a 100% organic, grass-fed, free-range and wild game foods?
It's better, but unfortunately, it's still not enough.
The degradation of vital nutrients in our soils in the past century is due to industrialization of farms (even organic farms) and changes in fertilizing practices.
"Insufficient vitamin intake is apparently a cause of chronic diseases. Recent evidence has shown that suboptimal levels of vitamins (below standard), even well above those causing deficiency syndromes, are risk factors for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis. A large portion of the general population is apparently at increased risk for this reason." ~ Dr. Robert Fletcher and Dr Kathleen Fairfield, Harvard Researchers
Better would be to have your own traditional farm in which all ecosystems work in synergy. And to not have access to "so-called food" that deplete the body of nutrients (examples):
- sugar (paralyzes the immune system)
- alcohol (impairs many body systems)
- fast food (rancid oils - thickens the blood)
- packaged foods (rancid oils, preservatives)
Improper digestion is usually caused by a shock to the system, and part of that shock may be psychological (another topic for another time), or is due to a physical shock to the system of ingestion of content that was not designed for the system in the first place.
When our body is working with degraded food, nutrients that are lost in the digestion process must be pulled from other areas of our body such as the muscles and the bones. This is how our body becomes imbalanced over a long period of time.
Supplementing provides a base foundation so the body has immediate access to nutrients it needs on the fly instead of resourcing it via atrophy.
If you have any questions about supplementation, or would like to go over all the products you are already taking to make sure they are safe, feel free to reach out.
Safe supplementation for optimal health is just as important to know!
This is why I trust USANA supplements. They are "Supplements for Dummies", and are safe to combine products within the USANA brand without worry of imbalances due to their scientific expertise in knowing exactly what the cell needs to function optimally.
When working with clients, I know exactly what they are taking and how it is affecting them based on USANA's excellence in safety, potency, purity and safety.
If you are interested to learn more about the difference in USANA products and how they can jump you to the next level in your health regime, contact me.
Want to go through the supplements you are already taking to see if there are any concerns you might not be aware of...I can help you with that as well.
Yours in Health,
