Natural Nutritional Consulting

“Let food be your medicine.”
Hippocrates

Nutrition is a basic component of our health and can be a huge factor in disease. Supportive nutrition and our alignment with nature are basic components of our health and certainly factors in disease when they are not present.

Why are people nutrient deficient today when we have access to an abundance of food?

  • SAD (Standard American) diet
  • Allergies
  • Poor digestion
  • Stress
  • Lifestyle
  • Processed food/over cooking
  • Chemicals/environmental pollutants
  • Food grown in depleted soil

Nutrition is really the basis for both preventative and corrective medicine and long standing nutritional deficiencies can be corrected with diet and supplements.

  1. Fatigue

Hair Mineral Analysis:

Minerals in the body are involved in almost all enzyme reactions, metabolic activity and detoxification cycles. They are vital for the effective absorption and proper function of nutrients and vitamins. Our bodies cannot utilize vitamins and other nutrients without a correct balance of minerals, even in trace amounts. Proper mineral balance is essential to avoid chronic fatigue, weight gain/loss, headaches, depression and osteoporosis. When mineral deficiencies occur toxic metals often replace these vital minerals in the body leading to many chronic ailments. Hair mineral analysis can help establish a nutritional profile to guide in the development of an effective wellness and nutritional balancing program. Your customized results will measure 15 toxic elements and 25 nutritional elements and be documented in an easy to read report.

Sunday, Oct. 15, 1-5pm @ Red Deer, Black Night Inn

Musculoskeletal conditions may be linked to nutritional deficiencies. Have you ever wondered why some of your clients do not respond as quickly as others to manual therapies? Inflammation, pain, trigger points, fascia restrictions, arthritis, chronic fatigue and pain syndromes, muscle cramps, and poor healing of soft tissue injuries can be attributed to nutritional deficiencies. A Standard American Diet (SAD diet), decreasing nutritional value in our food, drug-nutrient depletions, and stress and lifestyle all affect the body’s ability to absorb and use the nutrients available to us.

In this course you will learn:

  1. Nutritional factors that impair healing.

  2. Drug nutrient depletions with common anti-inflammatories and pain relievers.
