Today’s lifestyle in the United States is very fast paced and increasingly busy. We don’t allocate a lot of time to eating well. For many people eating is mostly about being convenient, quick, and affordable. In our society we eat too many processed foods that have high contents of sugar, sodium, refined grains, unhealthy fats and synthetic compounds like sweeteners, food additives, and food colorings, and our produce and natural food sources don’t have the same nutritional values that they did even 10 years ago. Our soils are overworked and crop rotation very rarely happens. In addition to the majority of our foods in the U.S. being genetically modified or altered from their original state, we also are dealing with fish with heavy metal toxicity and meats from animals raised with growth hormones and overuse of antibiotics.
We are in the middle of a nutritional health crisis. This is SAD, the (Standard American Diet), and it is the culprit leading to major chronic health conditions such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, systemic cellular inflammation, cancer, and autoimmune disorders. The entire medical community has taken a strong focus on diet and nutrition recently and is now realizing that nutrition strongly affects our total health.
At Lincoln Health & Wellness Center, we use a variety of testing and patient history to help assess your nutritional needs for both therapeutic and wellness care. Whether it be through supplementation with high quality professional line of products, metabolic detoxification, anti-inflammatory diet protocols, or general diet along with lifestyle changes, we can help you feel better.
