Nutritional Sources of Whole Natural Foods – Part 1
All patients respond better on our program when eating healthy. It is a well-known key to success. When we see a patient for the first time, it is not unusual to find many challenges and dysfunction which we handle with the correct supplement(s), but we also try to get our patients to stop doing what has made them ill in the first place which stems from a deficient diet. 
It is interesting to note that patients that maintain a varied and clean diet eventually require less supplements and at some point, are testing for only a few maintenance products. 
We are omnivores and need a wide variety of foods to support a healthy body. You will notice below, a wide variety of foods listed. If you can consume some of each in rotation, you will have achieved a great deal towards health. 
NOTE: Organ meat are not readily available in recent times because the animals are no longer healthy, and their organs are not consumable. Standard Process has their own organic farm, and they can provide these organs in capsules or tablets and are in many of their products. But if you can find a local farm or find grass-fed and meat from pastured animals online, fresh is always the best option. That said, if organ meats are not something that you find very appealing and you find yourself gagging at the thought, or if you do not consume meat, Standard Process is your best option to complete your diet. We also have vegetarian protein option that we can recommend to help complete your diet.
