“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates

We will review your diet and suggest simple ways to improve it, based on your specific health needs, so you can learn how to support your body’s natural ability to heal and live your life to the fullest.

Supplementation of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other nutrients may also be suggested.

Personalized nutrition plans can be helpful for:

  • Anyone suffering with a health issue such as fatigue, trouble losing weight, digestive upset, headaches, allergies, food sensitivities, and much more.
  • Someone with one or more health issues that are acute, or have become chronic, and are impacting their quality of life.
  • Anyone ready to make a positive improvement that will put them back in charge of their own health.
  • Women and men planning to start a family and looking to support their chances of a healthy conception.
  • Anyone who is healthy, but is confused on what nutritional supplements would be the most beneficial for them.

Americans are overfed and undernourished.

As a nation, we eat poor quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. We do not eat enough fresh produce and quality protein. The foods we eat, such as sugar, refined flour, genetically modified and processed foods, are not providing our bodies with the nutrition they need to survive and be healthy. The depletion of minerals in our soils and medications we take, also leave us lacking many important nutrients and minerals, therefore our bodies are starving and we are sick.

Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability of healing itself.

Food is medicine and nutrition is essential to reaching optimal health. Nutrition is part of the foundation for which your body is able to function, and making dietary shifts can have a profound impact on your overall well-being. If properly fed and given the right nutrients, the human body is designed to repair itself. To do so we need to eat a healthy diet, exercise, and take high quality supplements.

Benefits of a whole food diet:

Whole Food Supplements

“One of the biggest mistakes that medical science has ever made is to provide drugs to people who are starving. A starving man doesn’t need drugs. He needs food. And if he gets food he recovers. If he gets drugs, he doesn’t.” –Dr. Royal Lee 

Only whole food nutritional supplements complete the nutrition gap

Whole food supplements are made by concentrating foods. When concentrated correctly, the foods supply a multitude of nutrients. These nutrients work synergistically, or together, to provide you with optimal nutrition for good health.

Whole food supplements do not contain anything chemical or synthetic, so they are digested, absorbed, and utilized extremely efficiently within the body. By giving the correct balance of whole food supplements, complete with their synergistic components including minerals, co-factors, enzymes, organic materials, and plant and animal constituents, individuals experiencing imbalance or disease can correct the effects of deficiency and overcome many acute, chronic and degenerative conditions. They are generally very safe for everyone, including children, elderly, pregnant and breastfeeding women, and do not interact with medications or produce side effects.

Professional Grade Supplements

In addition to whole food supplements we recommend a variety of professional grade supplements. These high-quality supplements are made with the purest ingredients to ensure proper potency and bioavailability. We only promote companies with honest labeling, that follow standards of current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP).

When choosing a supplement, quality is more important than quantity.

We do not use or recommend over-the-counter supplements, because we simply cannot guarantee the quality, potency, and effectiveness of the ingredients

Herbal Medicine

“For every human illness, somewhere in the world there exists a plant which is the cure.” –Rudolf Steiner 

Acupuncture stimulates the flow of energy and blood, but if deficient organ systems are contributing to your health problems, acupuncture alone may not be enough. By using herbs to strengthen and enhance normal body functions, a general sense of well-being can be restored. 

Herbal medicine consists of plant, animal, and mineral substances. 

You may even find some of these in your kitchen and garden! Herbs can have a direct impact on your metabolic system, endocrine system, immune system and other systems which may be malfunctioning and contributing to a pathologic state. 

Herbal medicine can nourish, support, increase and enhance your organ systems, to promote healing and balance for your specific conditions. Each person is unique; therefore, herbal formulas will be selected based on your individual constitution and symptoms, in order to treat the root of the issue. 

Herbal medicines are prescribed singularly or in a formula, to assist in general health maintenance, disease prevention, and symptom reduction. From “seed to shelf,” we only use companies that prioritize safety and potency in their herbal extracts by following standards of current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP).
