Guest Post: Natural Nutrion by Teddi Lee

Natural Nutrition has always been a passion of mine, for many reasons. Proper nutrition can not only increase your energy levels and make you feel better, but it will physiologically optimize your health by preventing certain diseases and assisting your body to rebuild and improve any current health conditions. I chose to focus specifically on the role of nutrition in chronic disease, including possible prevention or remediation by addressing nutritional deficiencies. I really want to get this point across as I don’t know if many people actually believe it: Most health conditions can be prevented or alleviated with a proper healthy diet! Period!

Unfortunately, our Pharmaceutical companies are making a pretty penny as they feed us pills that mask our symptoms and don`t even address the cause or cure of the problem. These synthesized medications can often cause more harm than good as they tax our kidneys and livers and create toxic build-up in our systems, creating further problems. I was pleased to research many amazing and naturally grown foods that can create the same positive effects of pharmaceutical drugs without the unhealthy side effects. As a disclaimer, it is important to note that in some instances, the use of pharmaceutical medications is necessary to support life, so consulting with your Physician is recommended.

After researching the true causes for many chronic diseases, it was evident that nutritional deficiencies played a major role in illness. Therefore, it can also be said that by rebuilding these deficiencies, many diseases can not only be alleviated but prevented. This would decrease the need for pharmaceutical medications and even eliminate it altogether.

This is great news! Unfortunately, the food quality today is not the same as it was back in the 1960`s. Due to National overproduction and nutrient-depleted soils, even our naturally grown or organic foods no longer contain the nutrients our bodies need to thrive. As our society becomes a more fast-paced culture, ``fast food`` and processed foods are alarmingly on the rise. All of these solutions to providing more convenience have created a drastic increase in Chronic Diseases and Cancers.

It is no longer an argument that supplementation is necessary to counter the above realities. When it comes to supplementation, proceed with caution; they are not all equal! Just like the medications we buy at the Pharmacy, many over-the-counter multivitamins contain man-made mineral blends that can be very detrimental and cause more harm than good. Some, if overdosed, can even be fatal. The absorption rates of pills vs. capsules and capsules vs. liquids vary dramatically. What`s the use in taking a solid multivitamin pill when studies have shown that only about 15-20% is being absorbed into your bloodstream? Did you know that a liquid supplement has a 98% absorption rate? It is important to be fully informed when choosing the most safe and effective supplements.

Natural supplementation is the only way that our Nation can ensure that we are safely consuming all of our needed vitamins and minerals necessary for the majority of our body functions. With proper supplementation, we can improve, cure and prevent illness and optimize health and well-being.
We would love to help you make a change for the better! For more information on what to look for in a supplement or on specific supplements recommended by the Nutrition Nurse, contact us at: contact@thenutritionnurse.ca
