The food we eat gives our bodies the information and materials we need to function properly.
If we don’t get the right information, our bodies suffer and our health declines. In some cases, even the wrong set of “instructions” can lead to inflammation, malnourishment and the increased risk for the development of chronic diseases and conditions.
In short, the QUALITY of the food we eat is central to the QUALITY of our health.
Chronic diseases are ongoing conditions and many can be prevented, delayed or alleviated through diet, exercise and therapy. Chronic diseases are the leading cause of death and disability in the United States with 133 million Americans – 45% of the population – having at least one chronic disease.
Now, more than ever, we have an abundance of health-related information at our fingertips – endless internet search options, online summits, podcasts, e-learning courses, local community events, books, magazines and more. However, most people are overwhelmed and tired of the “trial and error” approach that often leads to short-term results or poor results altogether. It’s like having access to all the answers you need, but still being confused about which answers are right for you.
Only treating symptoms is like killing the messenger bringing bad news. In order to achieve real, lasting wellness, the root of the problem must eventually be discovered and addressed.
