You are what you eat...

by Jared Lien RN Licensed Acupuncturist

Have you ever heard that expression. You are what you eat? This is more true now than ever before. We are constantly bombarded with toxins every day in life.The water we drink, air we breath, food we eat, life saving medicine and vaccines, all contain toxins that our body must filter out. Organic food used to be called fruits and vegetables. Now we have a special area of the grocery store for our special vegetables and fruit. Plants are packed full of phytonutrients and minerals that help our body function properly. The fiber filters through our gut detoxing our intestines and blood simultaneously. Get rid of all the toxic junk food and sodas packed full of sugar. Pick up some fruit for a snack. Try out some new vegetable recipes. Making your own hummus is really easy and cheap. Try it. Experiment and add in whatever you want. Food network

If you have trouble eating a proper amount of fruit and veggies get yourself on some whole food supplements. My favorite is Juice Plus. They take the fruits and veggies and juice them for you. They pull off the sugar, water and most of the fiber and keep all the yummy phytonutrients from the food and encapsulate them. Check out the website for more information or to order some vitamins or nutritional shakes. Juice Plus Are you located in San Diego?
