You are what you eat, right? Actually, you are what you eat, digest and metabolize. Interrupting the “ease” of body function results in dis-ease. Leave things at that, and eventually “disease” is the result. Normal body function requires proper nutients and a lack of nutrients will definitely alter body processes.
This section of the site will be where we’ll ad information, supported by both research and common sense, that helps you get the scoop on food and supplementation. For now, here are some of the basics.
RESEARCH SHOWS THAT:
1.) Probiotic healthy bacteria are essential for health and well-being.
- Dietary sufficiency is necessary for the proper function of the digestive and immune systems and this for overall health is protection from illness.
2.) The North American (Western) diet is dangerously deficient in Probiotic bacteria.
- This deficiency is implicated as a casual factor in alarming numbers of preventable illnesses from infancy to old age.
3.) The only way to consume adequate amounts of Probiotic healthy bacteria is through supplementation.
- Research shows that we now consume one-millionth of the healthy probiotic bacteria that we did before pesticides, herbicides, and industrial farming.
- Much of our healthy bacteria are destroyed by eating sugars, grains, and by consuming alcohol, antibiotics, and other prescription drugs.
EPA/DHA Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Conclusive scientific evidence indicates that the Western American diet is also dangerously deficient in EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids. Research shows this is a common casual factor in alarming numbers of preventable illnesses and disease-related deaths.
Deficiencies in EPA/DHA Omega 3 fatty acids have been linked to severe illnesses throughout life:
Children: development, learning, and behavioural problems such as ADHD. Teens and Adults:breast, colon, and prostate cancers, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, depression, skin disorders, and digestive disorders like ulcerated colitis, Crohn’s disease, depression, chronic pain, vision problems, hormonal problems, and pregnancy complications. Elderly:arthritis, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s disease.
The Omega 3 Fish oil supplement that Living Well Spine Center provides is 100% natural, triple molecularly distilled, ultra-refined wild sardine and anchovy oil that is infused with antioxidants prior to bottling in Norway. People who supplement with Omega 3′s are healthier and have less chance of developing illness than those who do not have these essential nutrients in their diet.
