Nutritional Therapy and Regenerative Detox
What is Nutritional Therapy?
Less than 15% of physician visits include nutritional counseling (source). With more chronic disease and ailments originating from nutritional deficiencies than ever before, our healthcare climate is in dire need of an alternative solution.
Nutritional Therapy takes a foundational, holistic approach to wellness that focuses on the importance of a nutrient-dense, whole food diet paired with a balanced lifestyle and supplements*. It values the body’s own feedback system and its incredible capacity to restore and correct itself — when given the tools and nutrients to do so.
Nutritional Therapy addresses three broad categories of “disease”: allergies, toxic overload and nutritional deficiency, and is complimentary with naturopathy, homeopathy and other forms of alternative healthcare.
Nutritionists who adhere to the alternative philosophy of diet generally believe there are certain foods and dietary exposures that should be minimized if not eliminated in their entirety. They believe that many of modern society's health problems result from weaknesses in the body's physiological foundations brought on by poor nutrition.
What is Regenerative Detoxification?
Regenerative Detoxification, pioneered by Dr. Robert Morse, N.D., takes Nutritional Therapy one step further. While we do believe in the same nutritional approaches, we work entirely with whole-food nutrition and botanical medicine. We don’t use *supplements which are often synthetic isolates, made in a lab and not recognized by the body (the body actually eliminates those as waste, opposed to using them for nutritional deficiencies) (source).
The main aspect of Regenerative Detoxification is cleansing and detoxifying the organs and body systems from acids, toxins and pesticides, and starting the process of cellular regeneration that leads to true healing.
The lymphatic system is the “sewer system” of the body and also what can be understood as the body’s immune system. For most people, it is more or less congested and unable to fully eliminate cellular and metabolic wastes (acids) and toxic chemicals and metals that have been ingested.
We are chronically dehydrated (source). Our choice of acidic foods (which is pretty much everything the Standard American Diet has to “offer”), toxins, pesticides and stress make our body systems acidic which often leads to systemic acidosis, toxicity, chronic inflammation and a host of “diseases” down the road. A congested lymphatic system is where ninety percent of all disease processes begin.
Regenerative Detoxification is the practice of detoxifying, cleansing and regenerating organs and body systems. We believe that cells, tissues and organs will heal and regenerate when they have been cleansed and detoxified.
