Nutrition is the blanket term for all chemicals that go into your body. Some of these chemicals are beneficial to you and some are not. What is important to understand with nutrition is that not everything is as it seems. For instance, we all assume candy is not beneficial to us and avocados are great for us. However, candy can be used as medicine to treat diabetic hypoglycemic issues and if you are sensitive to avocados they can be detrimental to your health. It is important to keep in mind that you are an individual with a specific chemical makeup. This chemical makeup dictates how your body runs and that is likely very different from others. The diet you need is most likely radically different from what others around you need
There is no one diet that is good for everyone. Not everyone should be vegan, keto, carnivore or on a 30/30/30 split. There are many factors at play in this and proper nutrition is individual to the person. While proper nutrition can be a difficult road to go alone remember that all nutrition is chemistry, and that health is nothing more than good chemistry into the body versus bad chemistry out of the body. The idea that a one size fits all approach to nutrition needs to be abandoned.
While nutrition is often what we eat it is entirely about what chemicals come in and go out of the body. For this reason, it is often a requirement that supplementation is used. However, many people do not know what they need. There are several ways to determine this from blood work to eastern medicine muscle testing or both. Chalmers Wellness offers state of the art blood testing to determine food sensitivities. This blood test will allow us to better determine what foods are good for your body and your individual chemical needs. Alcat testing can help determine if the foods you are eating are pushing you toward or away from your health and fitness goals.
