FREE 15 Minute Nutrient Supplementation Consult

The alarming fact is that foods – fruits, vegetables and grains – now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contain enough of certain needed nutrients, are starving us – no matter how much we eat of them.

— US Senate Document 264, 1936

This statement was made over 80 years ago and the situation has not improved. Additionally, the Standard American Diet is filled with processed foods void of nutrients, high in sugar and low in fruits and vegetables. “Even with a perfect diet, the combination of depleted soils, the storage, transportation and genetic alterations of our food, and the increased stress and nutritional demands results from a toxic environment, make it impossible for us to get the vitamins and minerals we need solely from the foods we eat.” – Dr. Mark Hyman. Statistics also suggest that as much as 66% of all chronic illnesses can be associated with a nutrient deficiency. Evidence shows that to insure optimal health, supplementation of key nutrients is necessary.
