When you consider that 98% of the atoms in your body are different today than they were a year ago, you can begin to appreciate how important it is to provide your body the basic building blocks for new cell growth. Cells are constantly regenerating. According to Dr. Deepak Chopra, every minute 10 million cells are dying and being replaced. Diet has everything to do with whether your cells are regenerating or degenerating. Cellular degeneration is associated with premature aging.

We’re designed to receive energy from the food we eat. Junk food consumes more energy than it provides, which is why a wholesome diet is so essential. For nutritional support we recommend natural whole foods and whole food supplements. Nature has the ability to put together nutrients in balanced ways that are the most beneficial to our bodies.

An ideal diet is 50% cooked fruits and vegetables, 25% raw fruits and vegetables, and 25% grains, nuts, seeds, meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy. You do not have to be a vegetarian, but many of us stress the body by consuming too much animal protein. Animal protein includes fish, poultry, beef, and pork.

Since very few of us eat enough fruits and vegetables, and because its benefits are supported by independent research, we recommend Juice Plus+, a whole food supplement that provides the nutrition from 17 different fruits and vegetables and grains. It is available in capsule or chewable form (great for kids). The research has proven that it boosts the immune system, reduces damage to DNA, and saturates the body with wide spectrum anti-oxidants. It is easy to take and affordable.

For those with greater health challenges, for healing, we often recommend a major nutrient found in sea plants called fucoidan. Fucoidan is an essential element that strengthens the immune system, reduces inflammation, and its cancer inhibiting properties are well documented. The findings of a substantial body of scientific research, together with anecdotal evidence provided by a long history of culturally-based use of fucoidan-rich seaweeds in regions such as Hawaii, Korea, Japan, Polynesia, and Tonga, indicate that fucoidan demonstrates great potential as safe, nutritional support for a wide variety of health conditions.

Depending upon your condition, more specific nutritional intervention may be necessary. Saliva and urine pH tests are available to measure your present nutritional status and indicate the best nutritional approach to take.
