The human body needs to be given certain things in order to fully maximize its healing potential. It needs to be subluxation free to allow for unimpeded function of the nervous system. It needs fresh air and sunlight, exercise and rest, and it needs to be fed proper foods and pure water. Steering towards diets high in raw fruits and vegetables, preferably local, and low in processed foods, animal fats, and sugar will help to ensure a cleaner running body.
‘Health at Every Size’
Medical science has finally recognized the important role of diet in optimal health and disease prevention.
Yet, something is missing…
Obesity, overeating pain around body image, emotional challenges with food, digestive ailments, fatigue, and nutrition-linked metabolic disorders are with us more than ever.
Clearly, our collective approach to nutritional health and happiness isn’t working.
It’s time for a new way of seeing things…
Current guidelines recommend that “overweight” and “obese” individuals lose weight through engaging in lifestyle modification involving diet, exercise and other behavior change. This approach reliably induces short term weight loss, but the majority of individuals are unable to maintain weight loss over the long term and do not achieve the putative benefits of improved morbidity and mortality. Concern has arisen that this weight focus is not only ineffective at producing thinner, healthier bodies, but may also have unintended consequences, contributing to food and body preoccupation, repeated cycles of weight loss and regain, distraction from other personal health goals and wider health determinants, reduced self-esteem, eating disorders, other health decrement, and weight stigmatization and discrimination.
When was the last time you talked with a health professional about your health and received the personal attention you deserve? It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to work on their nutrition and wellness goals with a trained professional.

What’s a GMO?
A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process of taking genes from one species and inserting them into another in an attempt to obtain a desired trait or characteristic, hence they are also known as transgenic organisms. This process may be called either Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM); they are one and the same.�
In 2009, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) stated that, “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. The AAEM has asked physicians to advise all patients to avoid GM foods.
