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”.
A couple years back, Masami finally convinced me to have my remaining amalgam fillings removed. These were three large, clunky, mercury-laden fillings that I received somewhere between the ages of 9 and 11, a time when cosmetic appearances didn’t seem to matter as much as patching the potholes. I’d resisted following through because a few years earlier, I’d had another mercury amalgam replaced by a traditional dentist, and the effects of that exposure had noticeably left my body weakened for years after.
