Staying Healthy in Today’s Environment
The evolving model in the field of nutrition and wellness is that our genes do not pre-determine our health, and through nutrition, we can impact how our genes express themselves. What this means is that there is some level of control we have over genes that turn on and genes that turn off. This control is influenced by the quality of the foods we eat, by our supplements, and by our exposure to environmental pollutants. Good nutrition results in good genes being activated to produce good proteins, good enzymes, good anti-inflammatory products, and good cellular function. On the other hand, 'bad nutrition" results in bad genes turning on, ones that produce factors that promote pain, inflammation, fatigue, obesity, and poor cellular function.
Nutritional therapy is an additional and essential line of defense in the prevention and management of disease and the promotion of optimal health.
With new harmful compounds and pollutants being produced each year, infiltrating our environment, exposure is an unavoidable fact of life. Our bodies are designed to be able to process and remove many of these harmful compounds via the GI tract, liver, and kidneys. However, individuals with compromised health may have difficulty keeping up with the demand and can benefit from nutritional support to boost their bodies ability to remove potentially harmful compounds.
With a safe and effective metabolic detoxification program and nutritional supplements of unparalleled quality, targeted to your specific needs, you can greatly enhance your body’s natural ability to provide short and long term wellness, keeping you feeling your best.
