Nutrition Wellness to heal the body withinby Dr. Steve Perman
If you are reading this, you are intelligent enough to appreciate that virtually everyone needs to do a better job when it comes to what we put in our bodies. Eating a so called “balanced-diet” has become a very controversial subject since authorities are not in full agreement. It is well accepted that there are vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that are needed daily in order to not only survive, but to thrive. Ideally, these substances are available through the foods we eat. But the truth is that we don’t all eat properly, and even with good intentions and good food choices, many of us fail to get all that our bodies need. This is because our food sources may be unreliable, that is, the soil our fruits and vegetables are grown in may be depleted of necessary nutrients and many foods have been treated with chemicals, dyes and preservatives which further reduces or destroys the available nutrients. Animal products usually contain residues if drugs, such as antibiotics, and hormones that are routinely given in the agriculture, dairy and livestock industries.
For these reasons, even if we eat “well” (that’s a big IF for most of us!), it makes good sense to reinforce our diets with NATURAL supplements, particularly the ones that our body consumes rapidly such as Vitamin C-Complex and B-Complex. Furthermore, each of us should be increasing our available mineral intake and taking nutrients from the chemical family known as ANTIOXIDANTS. This last group keeps all the nutrients in the body from breaking down before they can properly be used. Extensive research on these substances has been ongoing and it is well accepted that they directly and indirectly influence your health and longevity.
You should receive a thorough nutritional evaluation to determine your specific needs in the areas of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, herbs, enzymes and diet. Please feel free to inquire for yourself as well as your family members and friends. This is a crucial aspect of your health and should not be overlooked! Since so many illnesses, including allergies, digestive disorders, glandular imbalances, menstrual irregularities, chronic fatigue, stress-related syndromes and headaches to name a few, can be helped through changes in diet and supplementation, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to find out what you need to know in these critical areas.
