Supplements? I’m getting everything I need from my diet…
14 March 2018
No one can deny that what we put into our body matters and most people are in agreement that what we eat affects our health. Our body is designed to heal itself but if we have nutritional voids in our diet, our bodies are unable to repair themselves and stay healthy. Addressing nutritional deficiencies affects our whole well-being – physically, emotionally and spiritually.
In the modern society, it has become difficult to get the right nutrients completely from food due to a combination of various factors including busy life and modern diet that includes a lot of processed food.
The right balance of nutrients in our food can help us enjoy life more and get sick less. Toxins and environmental pollutions have contributed in the depletion of our soil and it cannot produce the right amount of mineral and vitamins that our bodies need to stay strong.
The body needs vitamin and minerals, omega fatty acids and of course water is essential to avoid dehydration too. But, have you considered that each person’s body has a different need in terms of nutrition too?
I see clients that have experienced improved concentration, less mood swings and more happiness simply by reducing sugar from their diet. There are clients who were told by their doctors that they suffered with IBS turned up that what they needed was detoxing either form parasites or metal toxicity.
Personal stories, where you live, the type of life you lead has an impact on our system and it should be addressed individually.
Take, Amy, for example. Amy is a young student that for years has been suffering from IBS, at least that were the symptoms and her GP substantiated the diagnosis. She was about to go to university in a different town and was scared. She didn’t know what to do as nothing seemed to improve this “IBS” and so she sought alternative help. Her IBS symptoms went by cleansing the parasites and increasing her Vitamin C level.
I always emphasise to my clients the importance of well-sourced quality supplements as well as good balanced diet.
There are so many supplements you can buy over the counter in the supermarket or in high street chains and pharmacies, but all to often what you pay for is what you get. The cheaper vitamins and supplements have very little of the goodness in them and are full of binders, powders and fillers.
Good quality supplements can be a big cost on a family’s budget and it can feel like an unnecessary expense. But remember, just because we cannot quantify the savings in future and potential health costs, it doesn’t mean it isn’t important and a good investment in yourself and well-being.
Our bodies require a variety of other nutritional elements to remain in balance. Nutrition is just one of the elements that affects the balance in our bodies and energies.
Kinesiology can identify deficiencies and imbalances in the body including nutritional deficiencies. When addressed, balance can be restored and you are able to live a healthier and happier life.
