Dietary and nutritional imbalances are responsible for and contribute to a great number of disorders and illnesses which are prevalent in today's society. The top killers such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer have all been linked in numerous ways to diet and nutrition. Research shows that 70% of your immune system is controlled by your gastrointestinal (GI) system and the nutrition you put in your body.
Our nutritional plans focus on the true principles of nutrition that have sustained human life for thousands of years. These principles can be seen today in cultures around the world that are free of the chronic conditions plaguing North Americans.
The Standard North American Diet
The typical North American diet is not working, as seen by the skyrocketing statistics of heart disease, diabetes, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and obesity.
(It is these five chronic diseases that North Americans are most likely to die from.) To avoid becoming a statistic it is essential that you avoid the 3 Dangers that compromise health:
Sugar is cheap and addictive and a primary risk factor for diabetes, heart disease and cancer. When too much sugar is consumed, as is the case in the Standard North American Diet, excess sugar not usable for energy is stored as fat. With too much sugar in the bloodstream, insulin becomes constantly elevated leading to Type II diabetes. Sugar also fuels cancerous cells, and impedes the immune system.
North American studies which have linked fat consumption with disease have primarily evaluated the impact of damaged fats on the body, and have overlooked the incredible benefits of healthy fats. Damaged fats such as trans fats (hydrogenated oils), vegetable oils, and canola oil have been denatured through heat and chemical changes, causing them to oxidize and form free radicals which are hazardous to your health. Healthy fats such as olive oil, coconut oil, nuts and seeds provide your body with nutrients to build cell membranes, absorb vitamins and lower inflammation.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved approximately 3,000 food additives, preservatives and colorings for use in the food supply. The average person will ingest 140-150 pounds of additives and chemicals every year, creating a serious imbalance within the body. Because toxins from food and household products are fat-soluble, the body will naturally create fat to safely store the toxins and protect the body. This toxic fat will block nutrients, rob your energy, contaminate your cells, affect your moods and contribute to a host of symptoms and disease.
Doctors of chiropractic receive thorough training in the areas of human diet and nutrition. We can design a personalized dietary or nutritional program to minimize the risk of developing life threatening conditions and to assist your body in achieving and maintaining optimal health and superior wellness.
The Fundamental Plan
This plan is for everyone. The three core nutrition principles are the foundation for the Nutrition Plans, regardless of age, gender, genetic background, or medical history. Following this plan results in healthy, thriving families.
The 3 Fundamental Principles:
|Fat:||Healthy Fats vs. Damaged Fats||Eat More Healthy Fats; Eliminate all Damaged Fats|
|Protein:||Naturally Raised vs. Unnaturally Raised Animals||Go Organic and Natural for all Animal Products|
|Carbohydrates:||Whole Carbohydrates vs. Refined Carbohydrates||Eat More Vegetables, Eliminate Refined Grains & Sugars, Limit Fruit Consumption|
The Forward Plan
This plan can be used for short- term management of weight, disease, or detoxification, or may be used on a long-term basis for those who are genetically suited for it. The Forward Plan has been researched and formulated to maximize your body's full potential for health, energy, recovery, and cognitive power. It is designed to reduce inflammation, restore cell membrane function in order to aid detoxification, regulate hormones, and promote the use of fat (instead of sugar) as the body's primary source for energy. This is why it works so well, and so quickly.
Some indications you may need this plan are as follows:
- Autism Spectrum Disorders Obesity
- High Cholesterol
- High Triglycerides High Blood Sugar
- Low Blood Sugar
- High Insulin High Blood Pressure
- Heart Disease
- High Leptin Chronic Fatigue
- Cancer Digestive Dysfunction
- Genetic Intolerance to Grains Inflammatory Disease
The 4 Forward Principles:
Follow the 3 Principles of the Fundamental Plan along with the following modifications:
|Fat:||Increase your intake of healthy fats|
|Protein:||Moderate your intake of protein|
|Carbohydrates:||Eliminate all grains, sugars, and most fruits|
