“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates
Who can benefit from clinical nutrition?
- Anyone suffering with a health issue such as fatigue, trouble losing weight, digestive upset, headaches, allergies, 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 made from whole food.
Benefits of a whole food diet:
- Balanced hormones
- Less fatigue
- Less inflammation, aches and pains
- Improved digestion
- Increased ability to focus
- Weight loss and management
- Enhanced well-being
- Decrease in many symptoms
Whole Food Supplements
Standard Process whole food nutritional 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 breast feeding women, and do not interact with medications or produce side effects.
Research suggests that single vitamins, taken out of the food complex, may not be as effective in promoting health as eating the whole food. Each whole food ingredient offers its nutrients, plus synergistic co-factors, to provide you with the strongest, natural, and most well balanced nutritional supplement.
Animal tissues provide nutrients and support to stimulate the corresponding tissues in humans, enhancing natural cell and tissue repair. (We do have some vegetarian options)
Phytonutrients are the important nutrients found in plants that are necessary to maintain a healthy body.
These products are derived from plants grown on their farm in soil free of pesticides and chemicals. The machinery to process these products is made of glass and stainless steel only. The temperature used in processing the harvested plants is never raised above 90 degrees Fahrenheit so that the active ingredients are not cooked and remain active and alive.

Where do the nutrients in your supplements come from?
Are they truly doing a good job of replacing the nutrients missing from your diet? Look at the ingredient list, just like any other food label, you should be able to recognize and pronounce most of the ingredients.
When choosing a supplement, quality is more important than quantity.
I do not use or recommend over the counter supplements. They are generally engineered chemical fractions of a vitamin structure reproduced in a laboratory. A small amount of a whole food vitamin is more beneficial to the human body than a large dose of its manmade counterpart. Supplements comprised solely of single manmade vitamins supply only a fraction of the whole vitamin complex, creating a shortage of many crucial nutrients. This imbalance can actually lead to health issues.
