A nutrient is a chemical substance found in food that keeps our bodies humming along. As such, nutrients are really invaluable.
Nutritional science groups them into 6 classes, based on function:
That’s it, no more, no less! Just get each of these in the proper proportion and you’re good to go! The problem is “garbage in, garbage out:” the times I dive into physiology I’m struck by the myriad processes happening cell-to-cell and within the cell. This sobers me to consider most of what I consume should be the highest quality possible to not gum up the works.
Also, according to Chinese dietetics, the proportion of nutrient is different depending upon constitution. Broad brush example: a 19 year-old male college student has different nutritional needs than a 45 year-old mother of three who works full time.
In our practice we advocate that a quality diet, regular exercise, following healthy lifestyle habits, and finding a little time to regroup each and every day are equally important to promote longevity. We work with you to figure out each piece and do a dietary assessment with recommendations if that’s what you need.
