Dr. Royal Lee, father of nutritional therapy in the U.S., said that using prescription medications to treat functional illness is akin to using poison to treat the symptoms of starvation. But today’s medical culture is so lost in looking for the “silver bullet” that it has forgotten the simplest of strategies to restore health.
The body requires high quality replacement parts to grow, restore and maintain itself. And it has evolved over millions of years ~ along with the appropriate food sources that support it. Unfortunately, the corporate world with its money, influence and willing “scientists,” has convinced most folks that Big Gulps and Ding Dongs are harmless dalliances. But nothing could be farther from the truth.
We can’t blame the cow for soggy cornflakes. You have to know the nature of the beast and work around it. No one blames a lion for killing a wildebeest because that’s the lion’s nature. No one should blame corporations for marketing products in an effort to make money unless, of course, those products are inherently dangerous. And it’s my contention that processed food products are just that ~ inherently dangerous.
The human body cannot function well when it consumes today’s highly processed foods. It is an established fact that cooking alters a food’s nutritional value. Add to that: pesticides, herbicides and fungicides; chemicals to prolong shelf life; color and flavor enhancers ~ and what you have is NOT FOOD! It’s a chemical stew that eventually causes the breakdown of a body’s organs and glands, preventing them from performing their function and resulting in disease.
Symptoms like migraines, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are just the tip of the iceberg. Most autoimmune diseases are a result of poor nutrition and the toxic environment we’ve created.
As a practitioner of acupuncture, herbal medicine and nutrition, I have helped sufferers of many chronic functional illnesses by simply returning to the basics of proper nutrition. And along the way, most of these people are able to dispense with their medications ~ prescribed drugs that were not the answer in the first place.
It doesn’t matter whether or not you believe me. After all, 500 years ago, most people believed the world was flat. But we pioneers do what pioneers do. We forge ahead. For those of you who feel their health is important and are willing to change their habits, I invite you into the world of Nutrition Response Testing. It is a proven technology that reveals the body’s state of health and provides a strategy to restore it.
