Everyone’s body is different and experiences different challenges at different times. Customizing nutrition while taking into consideration the lifestyle components of exercise and stress reduction, is the very best way to get the most dramatic long-term results!
“Biochemistry” is the term for the natural chemistry that happens in the body during hormone production, detoxification, nutrient metabolism, energy production and more.
Chemial reactions in a laboratory are used to make compounds, much like our body combines and separates things inside in order to make what it needs. Adding or eliminating certain foods from our diet is a way of providing compounds that the body can use to make good, healthy “boichemistry” or bad, unhealthy “biochemistry”.
Healthy biochemistry provides energy and the hormone balance needed to help us feel great, think clearly, fight pathogens, stay youthful, and have energy. If we put in the wrong things, like junk food, it can inhibit the body’s ability to acheive what it needs to or even create bad, unhealthy biochemical reactions that make us feel tired, lousy and more suceptible to aging and disease.
In Lifestyle Therapy, good nutrition provides the building blocks for every system and function in the body. Exercie helps to deliver those nutrients, or building blocks, and drive positive, healthy biochemical processes, while stress reduction removes road blocks that can prevent both nutrient absorption and delivery.
Finding out what nutrients your body needs while under different physical demands is powerful to helping you acheive your health goals and take control.
