What we think and what we eat - combined together - make what we are, physically and mentally.
The father of holistic medicine
Once your body has been cleansed and detoxified through colonics and the Far infrared sauna, it is important to stay in that healthy balance. Our bodies can tell us so much about what we need to eat, and through guidance you will learn to listen to your own intuition about what is best for you to maintain that balance. We are firm believers in Edgar Cayce’s statements about the importance of maintaining an alkaline environment in the body, with an ideal pH at 7.4. An alkaline-forming diet is most important: to maintain an optimal level of health. We should derive 80% of our foods from the alkaline-forming category and 20% from the acid-forming category. Excess acidity in the body interferes with cellular metabolism, decreases lymphatic function and slows down energy production. Metabolic and digestive enzyme function is disrupted, impairing digestion and allowing toxins to accumulate. As a result, the body becomes less resistant to colds, infections and chronic diseases.
The typical U.S. diet - based on animal proteins and refined grains - is an acidic-forming diet, reflecting 80% acidity and 20% alkalinity, the exact opposite of what is needed. Our staff will make simple suggestions about moving toward an alkaline-forming diet, which does not involve any kind of complicated meal planning. Once you take these steps in your nutritional healing, you will have more physical and mental energy, improved digestion and metabolism, healthier sleep patterns, and a more positive outlook and attitude toward life in general.
We may also recommend whole food supplements to provide you with important nutritional blocks that are often missing in our foods. Through experience we have discovered the brands that are the best match to the corresponding deficiency. All of our supplements are manufactured to the highest standards within the organic/whole food industry, and we offer several brands which are only carried at our center for the Nashville area. We also recommend and instruct clients in the use of glycol thymoline and castor oil packs, both recommended by Edgar Cayce.
