Nutrition is the basic foundation for nourishing our bodies. Without proper nutrition many other modalities become less effective. We now know from studies on epigenetics that our diet and lifestyle choices have a huge effect on our DNA, therefore we have to understand how to make smart choices each and every day. In this day and age we also have to consider what type of food we are eating, where the food came from, what chemicals may be added to the food, and the option of adding nutritional supplements.
We use nutrition here in our dental office to help you feel your best throughout your dental treatment. Weston Price showed us through his research that you can support healthy teeth and gums and eliminates gum disease with proper nutrition. It will also support healthy growth and development of the jaw structure. Therefore, it is important to consider proper nutrition before conception, during pregnancy and during your infants early years. We also use detoxification remedies for mercury filling removals and beneficial supplements to improve post-surgery recovery time.
When it comes to eating, it certainly is difficult to know what the best diet for your body is when there are hundreds of them being exposed on TV, the Internet and through friends or family. Before we get into this topic, please understand that a diet does not have to mean strict eating or eating bland food. A diet should be a way of life that is incorporated in order to get the most nutrients in a joyful way. Here we will discuss many of the mainstream diets including the Paleo Diet, Macronutrient, Metabolic Typing, Raw, Vegan, Pritikin, South Beach, and many more. We hope to give you some insight on how to discover the best way of eating for your body!
