Nutrition and diet therapy, one of the best ways to take care of yourself! It is fun, easy to learn and to integrate into your life. Eating foods that support your body's system are known to help those who suffer from:

  • Digestive issues -  acute and chronic -  such as: irritated bowels, bloating, gas, belching, upset stomach, nausea and other digestive issues.
  • Poor circulation
  • Fatigue and low energy
  • Low libido
  • Poor immune system - auto immune disorders
  • Allergies

The food we choose to eat, especially matters when you are suffering from any kind of physical and/or emotional discomfort. The  sooner you remedied the discomfort the less likely it will become deep and chronic.

Essential Nutrients Necessary for Excellent Health

Do you know certain nutrients are heat sensitive?

Heating and overcooking food above a wet-heat temperature of 118F (50C) and dry-heat temperature of 150F (65C) deactivates enzymes and also destroys heat sensitive vitamins, especially antioxidants, essential fatty acids (EFAs) and amino acids (which are proteins).

Eating a combination of cooked, lightly cooked, raw, with a pungent flavor and fermented foods ensures you are receiving the enzymes and all nutrients necessary for strong digestion and optimal cell health.

  • Wet heat cooking methods include water, liquid or steam to transfer heat to food. Common wet cooking methods: poaching, simmering, boiling, braising, stewing, pot roasting, steaming and en papillote (cooked and served in a paper wrapper).
  • Dry heat cooking methods include grilling, pan-frying, and broiling and baking in an oven. It even includes deep-fat frying.

Without essential nutrients, our cell health is affected, creating over-all ill health. Therefore, the food choices you make are vital to ensuring you have strong digestion and a healthy mind!
