NUTRITION

Everyone knows they are supposed to eat healthy, but many people don’t know exactly how and what to do. Dr. Leff will take you thru a plan to slowly implement your new eating habits.

Most foods today are depleted of almost all nutritional value. For example, one would need to eat twelve apples today to equal the nutritional value of one apple from less than forty years ago. There are only two things people in our modern society can do to avoid malnutrition; eat only organic foods, and take dietary supplements. With the use of today’s refined foods, stress, smoking and alcohol, malnutrition is even more of a reality. Although most people do not think they are deficient in certain vitamins and nutrients, the longer you go without them, the more likely more serious diseases will follow. Long term subtle deficiencies lead to very serious diseases later in life. An example would be a calcium deficiency in a female leading to osteoporosis, or a zinc deficiency in a male leading to prostate cancer.

Every part of your body requires millions of chemical reactions to function properly. Missing one key element can start a chain reaction which leads to disease. Simply eating a balanced diet is often not enough. We mentioned the inadequate vitamin and mineral content of today’s food, but even the best food and supplements in the world won’t correct your problems if your digestive system is unable to absorb and assimilate them. The first step in balancing the body is insuring your body’s ability to absorb and tolerate what you put into it.

Everything that is ingested must pass thru the stomach, which bathes the food in acid (HCl). This process begins the breakdown of food into the tiny chemical pieces the body needs. HCl stimulates the pancreatic release of enzymes that break down proteins and carbohydrates, as well as the Gall bladder’s release of bile which breaks fat into absorbable sizes.

Without this sequence of events, the food you eat is not broken down properly, you gain no nutrition and the food rots in the intestines. This causes: gas, bloating, reflux, food sensitivities, and sleepiness after eating, to name but a few. The body is now unable to rid itself of its waste, and becomes toxic. This toxicity is often felt as chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia. This is a simple example of how the body functions as one unit. If one part of the body isn’t working properly, a seemingly unrelated sequence of events and symptoms arise. The diagnostic methods employed by Dr. Leff uncovers the hidden meaning of what your body is trying to tell you.
