My Philosophy on Health

DoYouBelieveNutritionMatters.com is based on the principles of homeostasis - when the body is balanced it is in a self healing mode, and when it is out of balance it is on the degenerative disease path.

Many factors influence homeostasis, including the foods we eat and our ability to handle stress. When we eat whole foods the way they are found in nature and not processed foods full of chemicals and preservatives, the body is fed at the cellular level. The result is health, well being and vitality restored.

The Standard American Diet is meat, dairy, white flour, white sugar and caffeine. These foods are all acid foods that contribute to the rise in heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity. Disease lives in an acid environment. When we eat foods that are more alkaline, like fruits and vegetables, our body chemistry changes and we are less susceptible to disease.

When we focus on building our immune system with a healthy lifestyle, our body is better able to resist disease. We need to shift our focus from disease care to preventative health care. This is achieved by living a healthy lifestyle. Our choice of foods and nutritional supplements play a major role of that equation.
