It is curious that we think of Health Insurance as a system or service that keeps us healthy, yet we seldom use it unless we are sick! Â We pay our premiums and believe that will keep us healthy. Â The truth of the matter, it is up to us to achieve optimal health and maintain it for life! Â Nutrition counseling can help people with debilitating diseases reduce their risk of symptoms and disease progression. Â Even simple steps such as reducing meat and toxin consumption and increasing antioxidants for someone with heart disease can make a world of difference. Â Basic counseling for diabetics that stresses whole foods, proper supplementation and meal balance and timing can greatly affect blood sugar control. Â Someone with high blood pressure benefits significantly from increasing foods the contain potassium and magnesium and decreasing processed foods that contain excess sodium chloride. Â Take a look at your “Health Insurance Policy”. Â Does it help you to insure your health? Â If not,Â consider a nutrition consultation!
