Toxicity is a challenge for everyone these days, regardless of age. Our bodies can only take so much stress and toxic overload before they begin to break down faster than they can heal.
People often say to us, “You’re Nutritional Therapists—is there a perfect diet for everyone?” As much as we’d like to say yes, it’s simply impossible to come up with a single one-size-fits-all diet. In fact, the word “diet” comes from an ancient Greek word, “dieta”, which essentially means “all that you do in a day”.
Nutrition IS about food choices—make no mistake about that! What we eat does matter—its quality, source, cleanness, and balance of nutrients. But so does what time we eat, how much we eat, how we’re feeling when we eat, who we’re eating with, how we digest what we eat, how we use the energy we consume, and so on.
In the United Stated, through a complex legal framework that allows a certain degree of smoke and mirrors in advertising, manufacturers can make claims that border on blatant untruths. If there is ever and asterisk indicating teeny-tiny fine print at the footer of a food ingredient ad, please take that as a huge red flat that there is a) an overstatement of its nutritional value or health benefits, and/or b) that there is a gross oversimplification of the “science” behind such claims.
