Food Allergies / Intolerances

A food allergy is an immune system response. It occurs when the body mistakes an ingredient in food as harmful and creates antibodies to fight it. A food intolerance is a non-immune system response. It occurs when something in a food irritates a person's digestive system or when a person is unable to properly digest the food. Food intolerances are more common than food allergies.

Nutritional Supplements
A Healthy Diet

A healthy diet doesn't mean eating foods that are bland or unappetizing. A healthy diet simply means eating nutrient-rich foods from all the food groups to supply the body with the energy it needs to function properly.

 

A healthy diet isn't as overwhelming as people imagine; eat a wide variety of foods consisting of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, low fat dairy, lean meat, poultry and fish.

Nutritional supplements are not a replacement for proper nutrition. They should be used in conjunction with your diet to ensure you get the nutrients that you need. Nutritional testing is necessary to ascertain the levels of deficiency in specific vitamins and minerals.

 

 The key to safe nutritional supplementation is to determine what your vitamin and mineral deficiencies are, learn how to make healthy dietary and lifestyle choices, and to supplement appropriately.
