6 Nutrition Tips for a Healthy You

1. Top 5 Nutrient Deficiencies in Americans

Over 90% of Americans are nutritionally deficient. Here in the United States, our food supply is often highly processed to the point that much of the nutrition is literally lost in the process. These nutritional deficiencies are further compounded by modern farming methods and the use of chemical fertilizers, which leave most conventionally grown produce lacking in nutritional density.

Fortunately, there are options to help you get the daily nutrition you need, such as increasing your intake of the right organic fruits and vegetables and adding quality supplements to your regimen. To help you better understand just which nutrients you may be lacking, here is a list of the top 5 nutrient deficiencies in Americans and what you can do about it.

2. Important Reasons to Eat Your Veggies

Just as your mom told you whenever you asked her why you had to finish them, vegetables are good for you. However, have you ever wondered exactly why they are good for you? By helping you to understand not only why eating your veggies is healthy, but also the benefits of different vegetables based on color, content, and type, you can get a better understanding of just why vegetables are so crucial for good health. Click here to learn 5 important reasons to eat your veggies.

3. Nutrition Mistakes to Avoid

Now is an excellent time to cover an important subject concerning how we nourish ourselves: the mistakes we make which cause us to fall short of our daily nutritional needs. Of course, you may be thinking, “But I already follow a healthy, all-natural eating plan which includes natural whole foods and a high-quality vitamin supplement – what more do I need?”

Proper nourishment involves eating the right foods and taking the right vitamins. However, there are other factors such as timing of intake, types of calories and what you are consuming along with them that can all factor into your body’s nutritional uptake, as well. Learn the top 5 nutrition mistakes to avoid.

4. Avoid Sugar!

This one goes without saying! We all love sugar, but is it really that bad for us? Yes, it is. Most people know that consuming foods high in sugar, and simple carbohydrates that convert to sugar, leads to several health problems, such as obesity, tooth decay, diabetes and coronary artery disease. But eating too much sugar also has negative effects on your brain. Learn about deceptive words on food labels that really mean sugar, and learn about some safe, natural alternatives to sugar. Discover 6 negative effects of sugar on your brain.

5. Avoid Gluten – Bad for Your Brain

Over the past several years, the “gluten-free diet” has become quite popular thanks to its effectiveness in resolving gastrointestinal issues, along with other symptoms like fatigue, headaches, brain fog, and nausea, to name a few. What a lot of people don’t realize is the negative effect that gluten can have on the brain and nervous system. Eliminating this one ingredient from your eating plan could possibly change your life for the better. Learn 7 reasons gluten is bad for your brain.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
