Why Nutrition is Important?
Our foods today are not as nutritious as many may think. In the past, it was common to grow our own foods free of pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics. We made sure to rotate our crops in order to help maintain minerals in the soil. Rotations of the crops helped crops by:
Prevents soil depletion
Maintains soil fertility
Reduces soil erosion
Controls insect/mite pests. Crop rotation as a means to control to insect pests is most effective when the pests are present before the crop is planted have no wide range of host crops; attack only annual/biennial crops; and do not have the ability to fly from one field to another.
Reduces reliance on synthetic chemicals
Reduces the pests' build-up
Helps control weeds1
Today, our foods are filled with these chemicals to prolong the shelf life of our foods. Even, insects decline from eating it. As we ingest this food, our bodies have trouble processing these chemicals which causes our bodies to become toxic. The body protects itself by forming fat around the toxins which leads to excessive body fat.
Many of the foods sold in the grocery stores and restaurants are composed of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). According to Non-GMO Project, GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”) are organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering, or GE. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.
This is why In Harmony Holistic Chiropractic Centre has a nutritional program for our patients. The program is designed to cleanse toxins from the body so excess fat can burn leading to weight loss. Our products provide patients with the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, digestive enzymes, probiotics, and fiber essential for a healthy digestive and immune systems.
