Nutritional Support

We are continuously updating the latest in nutritional therapy through the use of valid, scientific research. The most efficacious way to rejuvenate the body is through the use of whole food organic supplements, organic, whole food meal replacements and wellness and anti-aging protocols.

We carry only Standard Process* and Mediherb formulations and supplements.  Standard Process is a company that has been offering the highest standard of supplement formulations since the 1930’s.  Mediherb was founded in 1986 and provides health practitioners with superior quality efficacious medicinal herbal products that can offer life-altering therapeutic healing.  We have found no other company that offers this level of consistent clinical results.  Dr. Hersh-Kollars wrote a blog entitled: “Can Using the Right Supplement Company Really Make a Difference?”    drhersh.blogspot.com illustrating the fact that the supplements/formulations one takes can mean the difference between wellness or continued illness.

One component of nutrition that deserves significant attention is essential fatty acids (EFAs). EFAs cannot be produced by the body and therefore must come from the food we eat. They are the main structural components of our cell membranes, and keep our cell walls healthy by allowing nutrients to flow in and toxins to flow out. The three main essential fatty acids are Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9. Most people consume enough Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids in the form of vegetable oils. However, we are often deficit in Omega fatty acids that come from foods such as flax seed, fish and borage oil. Omega 3 fatty acids are known to help with cardiovascular, joint and skin health, and to improve mood. Supplementing daily with an EFA capsule, liquid oil or a vegetable-source fatty acid such as hemp hearts, is essential to properly nourish your body.

Greens

Dietary essentials for wellness include getting the five to ten servings of vegetables and fruits per day that will provide you with antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and minerals necessary for optimum functioning at the cellular level. To help you achieve this goal, we suggest a whole food phytonutrient blend, often called “green powder.” We carry a superior powder blend of phytonutrients from 40 different organic vegetables and fruits.  Of course, please remember it’s always  best for you to eat real, organic fruits and vegetables.

Protein

Protein is another nutritional foundation essential to building and maintaining muscle during every stage of life. Protein provides a number of benefits in the areas of weight management, immune support, and bone health. As you know it is always best to nourish your body with natural organic foods, but you may also benefit by adding a protein powder to your supplement routine. This is recommended especially for people who are on vegetarian diets, the elderly, and to those striving for maximum energy.

Could the Supplements You Take Be Harming You?

According to the US government research, 70% of all Americans are not getting the nutrients they need in order to avoid long-term nutrient deficiency.

Strawberries-edgedThis puts the majority of the population at a much greater risk of premature aging and chronic diseases. For those who wish to live a long and healthy life, free of the chronic debilitating conditions that plague this society, it is vital that we take the time and effort to evaluate what we eat and what type of supplements we take.

We live in an ever-increasingly polluted world: both environmentally and physiologically. The supplements we take can be just as potentially damaging as the polluted air we breathe, the chemical-laden water we drink and the foods we eat. As a result of this constant barrage of free-radical damaging chemical assault, we need to make sure we are not adding to this insult  by  taking  supplements  that  are  fractionalized  and bottled as “natural” when they have been processed with acetone and petroleum products.

Any supplement that is not of an organic, whole food source, is allowed, by the FDA, to be processed with chemicals and still labeled “natural”.  After all, petroleum is found in nature. Our bodies cannot recognize or utilize these synthetics derivatives at the molecular level. No vitamin exists in nature without hundreds or thousands of other phytonutrients. The truth is, we don’t know which phytonutrient is essential for the utilization of a vitamin or mineral.

We do know that the body sees synthetically manufactured vitamins differently than those occurring with the natural phytonutrients in whole foods.

Are you interested in obtaining the state of optimal health which prevents diseases and the debilitating dysfunctions that are associated with premature aging?

If so, we offer individualized testing to ensure that you are taking the proper supplements to obtain optimal health.
