Difference between Nutrition (wholefood supplements) and Neutraceuticals (synthetic vitamins)

Thursday, December 22, 2022 10:58 AM

For success in a Nutritional practice, you need good products you can count on.  There is a difference between what we are doing here at Better Body Clinical Nutrition compared to what is generally out there.   
More and more doctors are moving into the field of “Nutrition” and what is actually happening is that they have moved into the Neutraceutical field.  And there is a huge different between Nutrition and Neutraceutics, the difference being that Nutrition actually provides the genuine replacement parts so that the body can actually repair and heal itself.  It contains those parts in a natural form the way the body should have been getting it from food in the first place.  And those are the only things the body can actually heal itself with (Whole Foods)
That’s the actual biological design and plan.  Whoever created this whole ecological system that we live on which consists of the plants and animals and other things on planet earth, had a design.  These people bodies as opposed to plant bodies, have as their design that food is what is supposed to keep these bodies going.
Now we take these bodies and apply an incredible amount of false information on what is regarded as food.  Most food found in a typical grocery store is what is called Conventional Food which means it contains toxins (preservatives, color, etc.) but you get enough out of it that you don’t notice you’re dying from it. It is a PR (public relation, i.e., marketing) world.  The big food manufacturers redefine and change definitions to suit their marketing needs.  But that aside what we have is an autonomic nervous system which lives on food.  It lives on the basic nutrients, the micronutrients, the macronutrients, the various fats, protein, etc. that are provided by real food and if you are not putting that in the body then you make it impossible for the autonomic nervous system to do its job.  So, then you get battered about by all the various stresses and strains and toxicities, etc. in the environment and the body cannot respond to it.  When the body does not respond to it then you eventually (given enough time) develop a diagnosable disease.  The usual treatment for diseases is to suppress the symptoms with Pharmaceuticals (medication).  Pharmaceuticals do this by using powerful chemicals to directly create a change in the body without the input of the autonomic nervous system.  It bypasses the autonomic nervous system which is the system that is supposed to be in charge of these chemical reactions.  Now the only way the autonomic nervous system can relay a problem with our body’s functions is through symptoms so that we pay attention and change what we are doing so it can restore proper function.   Suppressing symptoms is like taking a hammer and smashing the fire alarm to pieces when it is going off without going to find out where the fire is.  
Now because of the damage the Pharmaceuticals can create the influx of Neutraceuticals has come in, what is a Neutraceutical?  Neutraceutical is not Nutrition.  Although according to FDA rules & regulations it is covered under Nutritional Laws, and it gets everybody confused.   Most doctors who think they are dealing in Nutrition are talking about how many milligrams of ascorbic acid a female in her second term of pregnancy needs and Ascorbic Acid is only one part of the Complex Vitamin C which would be found in Whole Foods.   Ascorbic Acid is not complete, it is what we call an isolate.  The labs have isolated and taken out one part of a food or compound, often they recreate this isolate out of other material like rocks.  The point is it does not give all the parts needed for a body to repair.  Neutraceuticals or synthetic vitamins are a safer drug.  Anytime you give therapeutic doses of synthetic nutritional isolates, you’re doing it for one purpose only, that’s to purposely change the function of the autonomic nervous system according to the way you think it needs to be changed.   That is the same result as using medication but at a safer level.   The autonomic nervous system is autonomous which means it works on its own.  It is responsible for every chemical reaction, every function of your body, so that it is ready for you whenever you need it to respond.   So, by using Neutraceuticals you bypass the autonomic nervous system and prevent it from doing its job.   With Neutraceuticals you force the autonomic nervous system to do something you think it needs.  So, by default it loses control, and you don’t want it to lose control, you want it to gain better control and do its job better.   What will make the autonomic nervous system work better?  Real Food!   
What we use in our clinic to restore good function and help the body repair itself is Whole Food Supplements.   Supplements that are made with Organic high-quality food that has been dried at very low temperature and put in concentrated form in capsule of tablets. 
Yet there are times when Pharmaceuticals, or Neutraceuticals are necessary to do something like that.  We are not saying that there is no place in the world for Pharmaceuticals or Neutraceuticals because there is.  And if there is a safer way to create a pharmaceutical effect with a Neutraceutical we prefer to use that when needed.  But you are not dealing with restoring health, or wellness when you are doing that, you’re dealing with symptom suppression, a more purposeful symptom alteration which is not the practice of Nutrition.   Real Nutrition comes from Whole Food in a form the body can utilize.  It must have enzymes, be intact, handled in a way that the body can actually recognize it as food. When we use Neutraceuticals in our clinic, we always test it on the body to ensure that the body can and will use it and we determine the correct dose. The Neutraceuticals will not test long term and there will come a time when we must switch to a Whole Food vitamin to truly heal and repair. 
So, with that understanding, our practice is dedicated to restoring wellness to people who want to be free from medical, from pharmaceutical dependence because it often leads to more problems down the road.  The more generation that we feed on fast food and pretend it is food the more these bodies will fall apart, and I am here to educate and help you and your family attain optimum health.
