What is nutrition?
Nutrition is the science that focuses on the interaction between living organism and their food. It also included the biological processes used in consuming food and how our body is able to uses the nutrients in the food (NTA Module 1). Nutrition is important for building muscle and burning fat (http://www.build-muscle-and-burn-fat.com/what-is-nutrition.html)

 

What are Nutrients?
Nutrients are the chemical substances in food that are necessary to sustain life. It provides energy from calories, contributes to the body’s structure, and regulates and assist in the functioning all the body’s processes such as enzymes and hormones. There are six essential nutrients necessary to support life and must be supplied by our diet.

 

Water – the most important nutrient in the body. It improves oxygen delivery, cushions bones and joints, enables cellular hydration. To determine how much water you should drink daily, divide your body weight by 2 and the number is the total per ounce daily (140 / 2 = 70 ounces). For every 8 ounces of caffeinated (dierutic, non herbal) beverage you imbibe, add an additional 12 to 16 ounces of water to avoid dehydration. Do not drink more than 1 gallon of water per day. For additional information on the roles of water in the body, refer to www.watercure.com (http://www.watercure.com/wondersofwater.html) and/ or “Water, the Ultimate Cure” by Steve Meyerowitz.

 

Fats – are a good source of energy and are needed for the absorption of the fat soluble vitamins: A, D, E, K. Fats are also necessary for the proper use of proteins in the body. Along with tasting good, fats provide satiety and play a role in slowing absorption of food for proper energy regulation. A high percentage of good fats are required for best health.

 

Carbohydrates – contain carbon = carbo and water = hydrate. Common sources of carbohydrates are grains, breads, legumes, fruits, vegetables, and sweeteners. Some roles of carbohydrates are to help provide fuel for the body, a quick source of energy for our muscle, and help regulate protein and fat metabolism. There are 2 classifications of carbs: simple, monosaccharides, disaccharides found in fruits and sugars; and complex, polysaccharides found in breads, bagels, rice, pasta, vegetables, chips, and legumes. The body needs good carbohydrates – unrefined, which exist in nature. The good carbohydrates are energy-providing and support life when linked with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, protein, fat, and fiber.

 

Vitamins – the best source of vitamins are found in properly prepared, whole foods. Most vitamins are not made from the body. Our body can only get them through eating plants and animals that make them. Most vitamins produce best results in the body when present with trace minerals, enzymes, or other vitamins. Some roles of vitamins in our body are – to help in digestion, elimination, and resistance to disease, function as primarily as coenzymes, or helpers, in metabolism. There are 2 classifications of vitamins: Fat Soluble (A, D, E, K) and Water Soluble (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, Folic Acid, Biotin, C, Inositol and Choline).

 

Minerals – provided only by food sources. The body can not produce minerals. It is what remains as ash when plant or animal tissues are burned. Out of 103 known minerals, at least 18 are necessary for good health. Minerals help maintain pH balance in the body, regulate tissue growth, contract and relax muscles, etc. There are 2 classifications of minerals: Macrominerals (calcium, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, sodium and chloride) and Microminerals (iron, boron, chromium, iodine, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, silicon, vanadium, zinc, lithium rubidium, and germanium). Best sources of minerals are unrefined sea salt, vegetables, mineral-rich water, nutrient-dense foods and beverages.

 

Proteins – are the building blocks of the body. They are important molecules in our body. All proteins are combinations of 20 amino acids: 10 are essential, which can not be produced by the body; and 10 are non-essential which the body can synthesized. Proteins help fight infection (antibodies), are the managers for all biochemical processes (enzymes), regulate our metabolism (hormones), and in the form of red blood cells (hemoglobin) carry oxygen.

 

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy focuses on eating or eliminating particular foods, vitamins, and nutrients for therapeutic benefit. Although food has always played an important role in different medical traditions, modern nutrition is based on early 1900’s research that discovered dietary essentials (vitamins) beyond carbohydrates, protein, fat, and minerals. (http://thenewmedicine.org/resources/definitions). It is a system of healing based on the belief that our food is our medicine and our medicine our food (http://www.innerself.com/Health/discovering_nutritional_therapy.htm). Nutritional therapy combines science (biochemistry and nutrition) with naturopathy (natural, drug-free medicine) in order to return the body to a state of good health. Nutritional therapy is wholistic because it is designed to treat the body as a whole. (http://www.nutritional-therapy.org.uk/).

 

What is a Nutritional Therapist?

A Nutritional Therapist, as defined by the Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc. is “a new paraprofessional certified to do Functional Evaluations in order to make nutritional recommendations to balance body chemistry and achieve optimal health.” Health is built on certain biochemical Foundations. (http://nutritionaltherapy.com).

 

“Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity” Hippocrates

Distinguishing between the “B” and “G” complexes

  • Many nutritional pioneers believed the B complex is really two distinct vitamin complexes
  • Although related, these two vitamin complexes have some very different properties
    By combining them, these unique individual properties were lost
  • The Vitamin “B” complex is thiamine (B1) based, and contains other B
    vitamins that are soluble in alcohol:
    B12, B6, and B4 (B4 is naturally found)
  • The Vitamin “G” complex is riboflavin (B2) based, and contains other B vitamins that are not soluble in alcohol:
    B3, PABA, folic acid, the lipotropic factors, choline, inositol, and betaine.

The “B” Type: Hypotensive, craves sugar, feels bad/run down, sick often, tends toward CHF (Congestive Heart Failure), need B1 (the “B” factor) – Naturally occurring thiamine.

 

The “G” Type: Hypertensive, craves alcohol, feels good/pumped up, does not get sick, tends toward MI (Myocardial Infarction), need B2 (the “G” factor) – Riboflavin and associated B vitamins; Type A person
