Tampa’s Premier Acupuncture Clinic answers all of your questions.
Patients often ask me if supplementation is necessary if they are eating a clean diet. I tell them it’s unfortunately required with the state of today’s soil, processed foods, and toxic environmental chemicals.
Anyone who thinks it possible to subvert this truth by eating an impossible clean diet 100% of the time needs to look no further then this excerpt from document 264 from the 74th congress in 1936 2nd session, 81 years ago!!! It has only gotten worse!
“The alarming fact is that foods [fruits, vegetables and grains] now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contain enough of certain minerals are starving us – no matter how much of them we eat. No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with the minerals he requires for perfect health because his stomach isn’t big enough to hold them.”
“The truth is that our foods vary enormously in value, and some of them aren’t worth eating as food… Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume.”
“It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99% of the American people are deficient in these minerals, and that a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease. Any upset of the balance, any considerable lack of one or another element, however microscopic the body requirement may be, and we sicken, suffer, shorten our lives.”
Whether you eat paleo, keto, vegan, or vegetarian its certain based upon our toxic lives and soil depletion that you are not getting the required amounts of vitamins and minerals no matter how strict you are. Tampa’s most experienced Acupuncture and Holistic clinic can help assess and find your areas of deficiencies.
