The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human body, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease”.
Which diet is good for us?
Food can be positively good for us, it can be problematic, or it can be neutral. Because we are not all identical, some people can handle eating certain food and others cannot. Some people have sensitivity or intolerance to elements/chemicals found in food. Unlike an allergy, an amount of the food identified may be able to be eaten without producing illness but they may experience bloating, digestive disturbances, skin reactions, headaches etc but if it is eaten long term may develop into an allergy.
Intolerance to salicylates, amines, lactose and gluten are examples of intolerances to natural elements/chemicals.
We use kinesiology muscle testing techniques to identify sensitivities to food, personal products and our environment. Kinesiology techniques can also strengthen our body reaction system, balance our energy and identify specific digestive aids to help us heal.
There are literally hundreds of books about diet and nutrition on the market, most of which suggest a diet low in fats and high in plant foods and complex carbohydrates. Some writers recommend large amounts of lean meat while others suggest a completely vegetarian diet. One school of thought promotes all raw foods; others recommend various systems of food combining. The authors of these books present many theories to explain why these diets should work, but in practice, the typical modern diet systems presented in our popular books have never been used by traditional groups of healthy human beings.
A diet that is based on traditional foods and that is nutrient dense is what we recommend.
- Eat whole, natural foods.
- Eat naturally raised grass fed red meat, wild caught fish and seafood, organic poultry, and organic eggs.
- Eat whole, naturally-produced milk products from pasture-fed animals, preferably raw and/or fermented, such as whole yogurt, cultured butter, whole cheeses and fresh and sour cream. Many people cannot tolerate cow dairy products and for those people goat and sheep products are often a much better option.
- Use only traditional fats and oils including butter, ghee and other animal fats, extra virgin olive oil, and organic extra virgin coconut oil.
- Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables, preferably organic.
- Use whole grains, seeds and nuts that have been prepared by soaking, sprouting or sour leavening to neutralize phytic acid and other anti-nutrients.
- Include enzyme-enhanced lacto-fermented vegetables, fruits, beverages and condiments in your diet on a regular basis.
- Prepare homemade meat stocks from the bones of organic chicken, beef, lamb or fish and use liberally in soups and sauces.
- Use filtered water for cooking and drinking.
- Use unrefined Celtic sea salt and a variety of herbs and spices for food interest and appetite stimulation.
- Make your own salad dressing using raw vinegar or lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil.
- Use natural sweeteners in moderation, such as raw honey, organic maple syrup, organic coconut nectar sugar and stevia powder.
- Cook only in stainless steel, cast iron, glass or good quality enamel.
- Get plenty of sleep, exercise and natural light.
- Think positive thoughts and minimize stress.
- Practice gratitude and thankfulness.
Kinesiology muscle testing is a wonderful tool for determining food intolerances or sensitivities through bio compatibility testing of different foods and substances.
