Americans are overfed and undernourished.
At our office, we believe that given the proper nutrition, your body has amazing capabilities of healing itself. We also believe that nutrition should be individualized to meet each patient's needs. To be healthy you need to eat a healthier diet, exercise, and take high quality supplements.
As a nation we eat poor quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. We don't consume enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Many of us get our whole grains from instant rice, refined wheat breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre made meals. One quarter of Americans eat at fast food restaurants each day.
The foods we eat are not providing our bodies with the nutrition it needs to survive and be healthy. We are starving our bodies of proper nutrition, while gorging on low nutritive foods. We suffer from diabetes, heart attacks, obesity, and the list goes on.
Plant based diets can change your health for the better. A study showed that in 1939 Norway had a very high incidence of heart disease, the Nazis took over in 1939 and used all their meat and dairy for the army. They basically forced the nation of Norway to eat a high plant based diet. By the end of the war in 1945, Norway had lowered their heart disease rate to near 0. But the year following after reintroducing meat and dairy, the heart disease rate soared back to almost what it was before the war.
Meat and dairy can be a part of your diet, but largely you should be eating fruits, vegetables, roots, nuts, seeds, etc. Because most people inour culture don't eat this way. Standard Process has done research to concentrate whole food into supplements.
At Triangle Chiropractic, Dr. Tsakos can take time with you to evaluate your nutritional needs and recommend a healthy diet and specific whole food nutrients from the Standard Process line to nutritionally support your individual needs.
