What do a Neurologist, the head Dietitian at a major teaching hospital,A world class body builder, and a man 200 lbs overweight have in common?
They all were sick and tired of hearing commercially designed promises to help them meet their Optimal Health.
What did they do about it?
They all made a 90 day commitment to Health Flex's custom Optimal Health Plan.
Why were these people not smart enough to figure it out on their on?
Well they probably are, it has only taken us at Health Flex thousands of hours of research, and a unique knowledge of anatomy, physiology, neurology,nutrition,well being, coaching, sports training, therapy and natraceuticals* to develop a strategy that helps individuals become the healthiest they can become without the use of drugs.
How do you help people, especially if they have illness or take medications?
That is a great question, at the core of our wellness philosophy is that the immaculate design of the human body and mind and it's phenomenal ability to heal itself.The body wants balance and uses a process of homeostasis to maintain balance. If we use the right fuels(foods and nutrients) to provide sustenance and we play and have a positive mental approach to life, exercise to stay fit we can obtain an Optimal Health.
That sounds overly simple, what about people who have autoimmune diseases,or diabetes and hypertension?
Did you know that before 1954 there were only four cases of autoimmune diseases reported? This coincides with the explosion of Convenience foods and the first chemical additives used in foods. In his book about the major processed foods companies called Sugar, Salt, Fat , Michael Moss details the industries knowledge that these substances actually become addictive and in the process of making them convenient they are stripped away of their nutrients by bleaching and chemical washing.When you see fortified on a label that means they have added back a synthetic version of the vitamins and nutrients that were removed.
What is wrong with making food quicker to cook, easier to go from the freezer to the microwave?
In theory nothing, however the danger is three fold.1.The processing has made them empty calories that convert too quickly into glucose , quickly going through the digestive system and being recognized as blood sugar almost immediately.When ever sugar is present in the blood, insulin is produced to help convert it to ATP for energy. The cells in the body can and will only use the amount of glucose needed as the demand for energy arises. The extra glucose is stored as adipose tissue or fat.The fat is designed to be synthesized and used for energy when the body calls for it after the energy from the meal is gone. At one time there were no sedentary jobs and the demand for energy was much greater.The next meal of simple carbohydrates and processed foods comes and the blood is bathed in insulin again. . Adipose tissue will not be burned if there is insulin in the blood and that is why you see being over weight as an associated symptom of diabetes type II.The hormone leptin signals the synthesis of fat and also is responsible for telling the brain when you are full. Most people who are more than 15-20 lbs are Leptin resistant.
Secondly,aside from the high blood sugar and fat , the nutrients that have been added back are synthetic versions of the natural vitamins. The cells in our body have receptors that work like a lock and key for the vitamins and needed nutrients,The synthetic versions fit but not perfectible and are either cast aside or depending on their function causing regulating and signaling degradation.In many cases they have been found to be carcinogenic.An example is the vitamin B-12. The form used almost exclusively in foods, and even so called healthy vitamins is cyanocobalamin .This form has been banned in the UK and European Markets because it has been found to do more harm than good. The cyano part is two molecules of the toxin cyanide, The process of methylation used to clean toxins from our body is already over worked due to the 80,000 man made toxins, increased mental stress and ever evolving viruses, this form of B-12 actually robs from this [process and puts additional stress on the liver to reduce the cyanide to waste.B-12 in the bioavailable form of methylcobalamin is the only form that can be used by the body, yet companies who pro-port to be health and vitamin companies throw it in because it is cheap and is more for marketing than well being.
Third, eating whole raw foods activates many designed health benefits essential to well being that can not be obtained in other ways.Research has proven that eating certain vegetables can kill cancer cells.These substance are called ITCs,( isothiocyanates) and are activated when chewing , or blending these uncooked foods.The research is clear and can be reviewed here. Another example is dietary nitrates being converted to Nitric Oxide a vital signaling molecule that is activated via the salivary pathway as the probiotic bacteria on the tongue convert the nitrates to nitrite.
Ok, so eating clean whole foods is important but isn't that common sense?
