Why Whole Food Supplements?



Once your practitioner has identified what organs or areas of your body are under stress, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet to bring about better health.


In most cases these nutrients come from supplements which are concentrated whole food, in a tablet, capsule or powder, prepared using a unique manufacturing process that preserves all the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as Nature intended.


These real food supplements have been designed to match the needs of the body, as determined by the assessment preformed by the Nutrition Response Testing practitioner. These are nutrients you are simply not getting, or not assimilating, in your current diet.


These deficiencies may be due to your past personal eating habits and routines, but it is for sure due, to a large extent, to the lack of quality in the foods commercially available in grocery stores or restaurants today.


An example of a whole food could be carrots. Carrots are high in Vitamin A Complex. A "complex" is something made up of many different parts that work together. Synthetic Vitamin A does not contain the whole "Vitamin A Complex" found in nature. So, if we were looking for a food high in Vitamin A, carrots might be one of our choices.


If you were deficient in any of the components of Vitamin A Complex, you would be wise to seek out a supplement that was made from whole foods that were rich in this complex -- not from chemicals re-engineered in a laboratory to look like one little part of the Vitamin A Complex that has erroneously been labeled as "Vitamin A."


Over-the-counter vitamins are pharmaceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. These cannot be used in lieu of whole food supplements in a designed clinical nutrition program. The label "natural" is misleading when applied to nutritional products, as the FDA will approve such a labeling based on a small percentage of naturally sourced components. Such products don't correct existing imbalances and may introduce new ones.


Your vitality and energy are derived from live food.


Most foods available today are dead, or are not really foods at all: boxed cereals, canned vegetables, soda pop, etc. You can readily understand the difference between dead, devitalized pseudo-foods, with the synthetic or isolated vitamins on one hand, and "Designed Clinical Nutrition" and a diet of real foods on the other.
