Refined Foods Cause Nutrition Deficiencies

Natural foods contain many healthy vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. However, over time, those substances can degrade. Manufactured foods are made with refined sugar, salt, flour, and oil.
 
The refining process removes those healthy vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, leaving a food product that is devitalized.
 
Why would manufacturers refine foods? Because foods that are refined can sit on the shelf for a very long time without spoiling. This longer shelf life ensures a higher profit margin.
 
The purpose of eating is to supply the body with raw materials in order to fuel the natural processes of life. The enzymes, vitamins, and minerals found in natural foods provide the body with that fuel, and can also be broken down and stored for later use.
 
A devitalized food source does not provide that fuel. Instead, the body must use up its stores of nutrients to fuel itself. That’s why over time, eating a predominately devitalized diet will result in multiple nutritional deficiencies.
 
Over the last 20 years, I have been checking my patients for nutritional imbalances. I can assure you that the vast majority of patients, both sick and well, have nutritional deficiencies. Generally, the more ill a person is the more nutritional deficiencies they have.
 
How can you change this cycle? Eat a healthy diet that supplies the body with the raw materials it needs to function optimally.
 
Avoid any food made with refined flour, sugar, salt, or oil. Your best bet is to eat whole foods that contain Mother Nature’s own nutrients. This includes organic food sources that have not been contaminated with pesticides and synthetic hormones. Organic fruit and vegetables along with free range animal products such as eggs, meat, and butter are good choices.
 
Fish can be a wonderful source of nutrients if it is wild-caught. Avoid farm-raised fish as it contains suboptimal fatty acid levels and can contain toxic substances.
