Systems Approach to Health

Diet/nutrition is one of the most important aspects to consider to get truly healthy and well. Food, water, supplements all work together to build healthy new cells for our body to use as a whole. Rather than looking at a specific deficiency of a possible nutrient, which is also very valuable, I like to think about it from a systems approach, which is multifactorial.

Systemic improvement through supplementation looks at our body’s systems like the digestive system, nervous system, muscular system, cardiovascular system, etc. The approach is to help nourish our system so it can work in balance with the rest of our body.

For example, most people have a poor/ unhealthy digestive system due to eating too many processed foods, grains, dairy, sugar, and unhealthy drinks. Even tap water decreases our health by stressing our digestive lining and ecosystem of bacteria and enzymes. To strengthen our digestive system, we recommend the Proflroa 4R spore-based probiotic, along with eating plenty of vegetables and fermented food. Proflora 4R is not your average probiotic. It tackles the healing of our digestive system from the inside out by cleaning out the unwanted bacteria/ and other critters 😉 and by rebuilding healthy new cells in our digestive system. Leading to better digestion and absorption of nutrients into the body.

The next system we recommend supplements for is the brain and nervous system. The single most common deficiency that people have in this department is OMEGA 3 essential fatty acids. Omega 3s help our brain and nervous system control inflammation by giving this system the building blocks to make healthy brain and nerve cells. Without this vital nutrient, our brain and nervous system cannot produce healthy and normal cells. Instead, it creates poorly functioning cells and building materials, which lead to inflammation, pain, and reduced brain health. This is why we recommend the Protocol for Life Balance Omega 3’s along with eating healthy fats.

The next major deficiency we encounter is in Vitamin D. The best and highest source of Vitamin D comes from sunshine between March until November (in San Jose). Vitamin D is such a big deal because it is necessary for almost every function in our body. It actually acts more like a hormone. This means it crosses over and works with every major system, especially our immune systems.

When Vitamin D is deficient, our immune system has a challenging time keeping us protected from environmental toxicity both from the inside and outside. This makes us more susceptible to infections and ill health, which leads to breakdown in tissue and leads to dis-ease. Without this essential supplement, our bodies become imbalanced, inflamed, and dis-eased.

These are the three supplements that research has shown to be the most vital to the health of our systems. When we improve many systems, we improve the chances of nourishing and sustaining our normal good health.
