The Nutraceutical Diet

Back To The Basics

With the advancement of research concerning the science of nutrition and a growing nutritional awareness, there is an explosion occurring of many different types of diets. Have you ever wondered which diet is the best one for you, but it was too overwhelming to decide? Even with the positive advantages of many diets, it is simply best to go back to the basics of a natural, organic, whole foods diet, rich in nutraceuticals.

The Nutraceutical Diet is simply a lifestyle choice, consisting of non-toxic, nutrient-dense, non-processed, unrefined, natural and organic whole foods. It is a balanced diet providing all of the foundational nutraceuticals necessary for cellular health, balance and therapeutic results, as also provided in the SOS Nutraceutical Kits.

Food for Thought

Does your diet contain all of the nutrients you need? Do the foods you choose to eat regularly consist of natural, pure whole foods? Are you experiencing unwanted symptoms such as a lack of energy, weak immunity or allergies, digestive challenges, aging effects, stress, pain and inflammation, genetic weaknesses?

Don’t wait – jump on board! The Nutraceutical Diet is a launching deck for you to create your own pharmacy of foods and nutraceutical extracts, which support your personal wellness, quality of life and longevity. Everyone can agree that allopathic medicine is appropriate in numerous cases, such as emergencies, while the obvious remains, that we need to be integrative in our approach with foods and herbs that contain valuable nutraceuticals which are useful as preventive medicine. In other words, by using The Nutraceutical Diet, coupled with the SOS Nutraceutical Kit of your choice, you have an extraordinary tool available for personalized holistic medicine. This powerhouse protocol of nutraceuticals supports proper digestion and detoxification, while improving your body’s eco-system function, improving alkalinity and balance, along with better nutrient absorption and utilization simultaneously.

With over 60 trillion cells in the body that make up body tissue, organs and body systems, each cell is dependent on a synergy of interdependent essential nutrients, enzymes and a healthy cell environment. Natural, organic, unprocessed, unrefined whole foods and raw foods provide the nutritive, medicinal compounds our bodies need to create optimum cellular health and function.

Power To Choose

With every choice will come an effect, and then a result. This principle applies to the diet and lifestyle choices we make daily. We can “accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative” by replacing over-stimulating, processed, refined and toxic foods with fresh natural, organic, seasonal whole foods. Eating a rainbow of colored vegetables and fruits daily, provides the nourishing and protective benefits of many phytonutrients and antioxidants.

Consider eliminating refined white sugar, bleached white flour, white rice, too much caffeine or alcohol, preservatives, anything artificial, such as sweeteners, canned fruits and non-organic, sulfured dried fruits. Also important, is to eliminate all meats and dairy which contain synthetic hormones and antibiotics. Additionally, eliminate all hydrogenated oils or trans fats and over-consumption of refined table salt.

Do include in your personalized Nutraceutical Diet more enzyme-rich raw vegetables and fruits, nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts), seeds (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia) and wild-caught deep sea fish, rich in Omega 3, such as Salmon (not Atlantic farm-raised).

When poultry, beef, eggs and dairy are consumed, be sure that they are raised naturally, grass-fed, free-range and cage-free. Yes – it is a huge advantage to include freshly extracted vegetable juices and green super-foods, such as included in the SOS Nutraceutical Kits!

Consider delicious, fresh, plant-based milks, such as almond, coconut, cashew, hemp and simple, but gourmet fruit creams, made in your juicer, with frozen bananas, strawberries or blueberries!

Use cold-pressed, unrefined good oils and fats, such as extra virgin olive oil, virgin coconut oil, flaxseed oil, fish oil and avocado oil. Non-irradiated spices and fresh or dehydrated herbs are the best choices. The Nutraceutical Diet also includes different types of beans, sprouted legumes, soaked oats and raw muesli (instead of processed, boxed cereals). Create your own soups and nourishing broths. Control your choices while dining in restaurants by choosing the healthiest options available. Enjoy creating your own natural, low-sugar desserts, such as fruit smoothies, fruit pies and raw or natural cookies. Vegetables fill the highest percentage within The Nutraceutical Diet, both raw and cooked (steam, roast, sauté). Increase your consumption of raw, fermented foods, such as fresh sauerkraut. Try making your own salad dressings, appetizers, main courses and side dishes.

Think seasonally (spring and fall), in regard to digestive and body cleanses. You can adapt The Nutraceutical Diet as needed to a plant-based diet to support cleansing and healing.

Think healing, as you can adapt your personal Nutraceutical Diet protocol to support healing processes, such as in regard to the needs of a cancer patient, allergy conditions, cardiovascular health, autoimmune disorders, immune weaknesses, joint or bone problems and more. Various foods and nutraceuticals are well researched, while advisement may be available, by a certified, natural nutritional expert.

Why Do You Need The Nutraceutical Diet?

“The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease”, once said Voltaire.

Pathology (chronic disease) is linked to poor diet choices, stress and poor inflammation responses. Natural nutraceuticals provide us with immune-builders and boosters, such as Zinc, Vitamins A, C, E and all of the B vitamins, essential fatty acids, protein, trace minerals and many other nutrients.

Depleted minerals in the soil, such as calcium, manganese, zinc, copper, magnesium and many others, contribute to weaknesses and diseases in various parts of the body, such as in the blood and blood vessels, bones, bowel, brain, nerves, heart, lungs, skin, hair, nails and more. Through generations our topsoil is being lost by water and wind erosion when plant cover is removed. Erosion can occur rapidly, leaving a layer of soil with lower amounts of organic matter and minerals. Fortunately, topsoil and bio-diversity are rebuilt by using the principles of organic farming methods, such as with crop rotation. The plant immunity and root size is increased with organic farming. Likewise, our bodies are strengthened when we consume foods grown organically.

Traditional allopathic medicine teaches that germs are the cause of disease; however, holistic medicine teaches that disease is the symptom of a sick or weakened body system. Natural treatments, such as choosing to eat The Nutraceutical Diet and supplement with a SOS Nutraceutical Kit help to correct the causes of disease, such as malnutrition, the long-term negative effects of pharmaceutical antibiotics and drugs, toxicity and a poor immune system.

Getting Started

As we circle back to the fallacy of being stuck in one strict ideology, I hope it makes more sense to you that there is no one type of diet that is right for everyone, all the time.

A great starting point with beginning The Nutraceutical Diet is by removing all processed, toxic foods and replacing these items with natural, whole foods, herbs , spices and the SOS Nutraceutical Kit (Detox & Alkalize).

For further assistance on an individual basis, a natural nutrition expert can advise you as needed, in how to make diet and lifestyle changes for the better.

Each individual can learn to make the best choices and manage their own wellness by choosing a natural diet and lifestyle which daily includes more clean air, pure water, sunshine, exercise, spiritual renewal and natural or organic whole foods. As your body utilizes more of the health-promoting ingredients it will crowd out the cravings for non-foods and stimulants and nutrient-depleted, toxic, processed foods.

The importance of food, home-cooked meals, family, friends and eating together is underrated, except probably by most Italian families. A social and cultural journey has been proven to activate more taste of good food, which increases the enjoyment of nourishment. When parents regularly prepare and share good food for their family and friends, it is like a blanket of love to a child, embraced with all of the senses for a lifetime.

A French doctor, Nicolas Venette, in 1683 wrote, “Ripe fruit is not harmful”, in a work devoted precisely to “the use of tree fruits for maintaining good health or as treatment in the case of sickness”, an excerpt from Cheese, Pears, and History in a Proverb, translated by Beth A Brombert. “When desire conflicts with health” we have a problem, but it can be corrected with the right choices and actions.

Manage your own diet, lifestyle and wellness. We can reverse body weaknesses and disease by choosing life-producing choices and eliminating negative choices. It has been noted that it takes about twenty-one days to develop a habit, whether it is a good or bad habit!
