~ Food Has Power ~
Where do I begin...?
I've found that many people are overwhelmed with which healing "diet" to choose and where to start. And the diets often have 'rules' for sequencing food introductions and HUGE food elimination requirements, and can contradict each other. Additionally, there are many detoxification and nutrient deficiencies overlooked in some of them, in my opinion. Plus many rely heavily on (very expensive) supplements.
I believe we can nourish and heal our body with whole foods. However, if someone has such a messed up gut that they need intensive nutrient support, Dr. Amy Yasko's site is an amazing resource, as is Andy Cutler and "Amalgam Illness" regarding chelating mercury (a common gut imbalance variable).
As a result of the above, I coined a short version of the highlights, 14 Steps for Healthy Guts.
These are nutrient-dense, healing foods which we can easily include in our normal diets for optimizing our health and strengthening our immune system. And they are the most cost effective alternatives because they are whole food nutrients.
Whole foods work in synergy to provide nutrients which science hasn't even isolated and defined yet. And they are in bio-available forms in combination so that our body can safely support our detoxification system at the same time.
Most cost effective alternatives are whole food nutrients.
Total cost about $4 per day.
The other four ingredients to avoid as much as possible are artificial colors, preservatives, HFCS and MSG.
And avoid anti-microbial products in the home.
Those simple ideas could help more people than all those other diets put together, in my opinion, because they are practical.
