Nelson BC Holistic Nutrition Consultant

The Foundation of all Human Health is Nutrition

Each living cell in the human body consumes nutrients, makes energy, produces products, disposes waste, and reproduces.  Each time a cell divides, produces an enzyme, or activates a hormone, energy is consumed.  This energy, which we call ATP, is made from vitamins which act as co-enzymes that facilitate the breakdown of nutrients.  If any one nutrient is missing from the cell life, vital functioning will stop.

We are made of the Dust of the Earth

The body requires nutrients from food.  Our plants grow in the soil which is a source of minerals that we need to stay healthy.  Only plants can transform these vital nutrients into a form which our body can handle.  When an animal eats a plant, we take in those nutrients from eating animal foods.  Plants which grow on dead soil, and animals that eat nutritionally void diets, do not make healthy offerings to our body.  Organic food, grown in ideal conditions, allow for the plant and animal to provide us with all the building blocks of life.
