The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease. The WHO also acknowledges that natural methods, such as nutritional, botanical, homeopathic and environmental medicine are the only realistic and sustainable approach to our global health needs.
In today's ever-demanding world, studies are showing nearly 50% depletion of atmospheric oxygen and 85% depletion of soil mineral levels in America. We are also having to deal with cancer-causing chemicals and environmental toxins in our food, air and water which compete with and destroy nutrients that are already depleted by modern food processing. Supplementation of essential nutrients and co-factors for health maintenance and restoration is needed more than ever.
Studies also show that many Americans consume a diet very low in nutritional value. The Journal of Pediatrics reported that only 1% of America's young people eat healthy diets and the majority of those ages 2-19 receive 40% of their energy from fat and added sugar rather than eating well rounded diets from a variety of whole foods.
In 1941, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration established Recommended Daily Allowances for 19 important nutrients. However, they are only a guideline for the vitamins and minerals essential for preventing deficiency diseases in healthy populations and don't reflect needs based on illness, biochemical individuality or the requirements for optimum health and longevity.
We believe that if your body is given an optimum level of nutrition, allowing it to function at its fullest capacity, it can overcome stresses and restore balanced health. Proper nutrition, exercise and a clean environment can help you achieve the wellness, energy and vitality you've been searching for.
