Did you know that symptoms and diagnoses lead back to food and lifestyle? Obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, etc are symptoms that lead back to food and lifestyle. Symptoms are the body’s way of saying that what you’re doing or not doing isn’t working.
A diagnosis is simply a name given to a collection of symptoms whether they are related or not. Therefore, a diagnosis does not determine your fate.
Did you know that behavior and mood are not disorders? Depression, bipolar, ADHD, schizophrenia, anxiety, etc are symptoms and we know that symptoms lead back to food and lifestyle.
Do you, a friend or family member know of a child or an adult who is on anti-depressant or stimulant drug such as Zoloft, Prozac, or Adderall? Did you know that most if not all of the shooters such as the Columbine, Aurora Theatre, and Navy Yard shootings, were on one or a plethora of mental health drugs?
Affluent Malnutrition + Mental Health Drugs = Violence, Suicide and Homicide
Affluent malnutrition is the western world’s version of malnutrition, from the overabundance of processed foods and a stressful lifestyle that manifests itself in a variety of physical and behavioral symptoms. Eating low quality processed food does not replenish the body with the essential nutrients it needs to perform the myriad of bodily processes and functions; to think sensibly and logically, to be able to get deep sleep, and cope and manage the day to day demands of life.
An MRI, x-ray or an ultrasound cannot detect malnutrition but the symptoms of affluent malnutrition are very real. Have you or a loved one ever had a medical exam done and it comes back inconclusive yet your body is screaming with symptoms? This is a good time to come and see me.
Affluent malnutrition cannot be treated with prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) drugs.
Picture a plant in a pot of soil. The plant obtains the much-needed nutrients from the soil. The plant gets natural sunlight and water as well. After a while the soil becomes depleted. The plant eventually starts to droop and wilt. We could give the plant the diagnosis of “wiltitis” and give it a pill. Or we could surgically remove the portion of the plant that has “wiltitis”. However, if all things remain unchanged the plant will eventually, wilt and die.
The body is the same as the plant; the body needs to be “fertilized” with quality nutrients. You should not supplement poor quality food and lifestyle habits with vitamins and/or medications. (This is not meant as medical advice. Do not stop taking your medications.)
