A key aspect of good nutrition is understanding that food should be eaten in it’s whole, relatively unprocessed state. However, there is a lot more to staying healthy and/or recovering from a health challenge than eating whole foods. Ironically, most “health-food stores” are packed with unhealthy foods and many “health-nuts” are digging graves with their own teeth just as surely as ‘junk-food junkies”. Understanding how food works in your body and drives your energy pathways puts you in the driver’s seat!
Our goal is to empower you with guidance and knowledge about: Detoxification, Fat-Burning aka Nutritional Ketosis, as well as Whole Food Supplements & Herbals.
Imagine that when you were born, your parents bought you a new car. They taught you to wash it, put it in the garage at night, and what basic fuel was required to make it go. But, they never mentioned the filters! Now you have driven this car your whole life and probably never cleaned the filters. Do you think the performance might be effected?
Detoxification is the process of clearing your body filters which include your liver, kidneys, lymph, and lungs. This does not need to be a scary process. It does take some time (at least a month) and some discipline, but we hear people say “that was easier than I thought!” all the time.
At Whole Food Medicine, we will guide you through an effective detox that will improve your energy, decrease your inflammation, and resolve multiple issues including digestive, hormone, and skin concerns.
Nutritional Ketosis (Fat Burning)
Most people do not realize they are a dual fuel hybrid! Your amazing body can burn sugar or fat. However, in these modern times, most people are sugar burners. Sadly, sugar is a very dirty burning fuel causing lots of inflammation and cell damage. Inflammation is the common denominator of virtually every chronic disease known to man including: obesity, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, auto-immune…the list is long and painful.
Learning how to transition your body from burning sugar to burning fat is what “keto-adaptation” is all about. Becoming keto-adapted is a fascinating, rewarding journey. At Whole Food Medicine we teach you how to access your ancestral blue-print; burn fat instead of sugar and reap the rewards!
