bodies seem to work best when we give them the proper fuel. Think natural,
whole, fresh, unprocessed, no chemicals. Its simple. Most of eat
too few veggies, fruits, and whole grains. Stay low on salt, sugar, white
flour products, animal fats, stimulants (tea and coffee), and alcohol.
Drink lots of water. Be reasonable and loving to your body and it will
function optimally for you.
The way I work with my patients nutritionally
is first with whole foods. Gradual diet changes, so your mind, body and
feelings can adapt. All plans are individualized and might include detoxifying
or cleansing diets, fresh juices, fasting if you are inclined and able.
The next level would be with herbs (American,
Chinese, Indian), essential oils applied externally and taken internally
and so-called power foods (i.e. bee pollen, wheat grass, probiotics),
then vitamins, minerals and special nutritional products developed in
laboratories from whole foods (olive leaf extract, Co-enzyme Q, essential
fatty acids, mushroom extracts, pycnogenol/antioxidants/proanthocyanidins
I also work with people who have eating
challenges: overweight, underweight, undernourished. I work with food,
and also the Option Dialogue and the Work of Byron Katie in many cases,
as there are reasons we say we want change, but dont change.
So we work together. I suggest and support.
You make changes if you wish.
