There are over 20,000 known species of mushrooms, and at least 50 have health-promoting properties. While most people are familiar with the white button mushrooms, there are other mushroom choices at the grocery store, with potential therapeutic value.

Phew! I just finished another college course. I’ve taken a lot of classes since getting a Master’s Degree and in hindsight, I probably should have taken the classes for credit, and not just audited them. At one time I wanted to top off my education with a Ph.D., but right now I’m happy to choose my own level of academic demands.
The reason I take classes is to gain an understanding of a topic that’s related to nutrition. I like gathering knowledge by choosing courses from other sciences that can broaden my holistic approach to nutrition.
The Nutrition Matrix
Food = slow poison or good medicine
Wellness Foundation = personalized nutrition matrix
Health is the result of a complex body that works right. A nutritional matrix is the connection of all parts and all body systems in a unique person. Your body, your health, your emotions – these make you an individual.
To find your unique matrix, we start with basic human nutrition requirements. The right nutrients help your body work right, the way it’s supposed to, so you have an abundance of energy and sharp brain focus.
Bladder Leakage and Inflammation
The ads on TV for adult diapers drive me crazy. No, it’s not okay to just treat the
problem by wearing something to collect your urine when you accidently wet your
pants. I suspect that most people
have correctable underlying problems that can be explained with physiology.
When you know what the body is supposed to do, even if
you only understand a few of the basic principles, you can take corrective
action. If you can fix the problem, you may not need diapers anymore.
How many times have people said that Holistic Nutrition Center should have a blog? I never thought there was enough time.
I like to help people eat better and some folks just need a little motivation. A blog may help. Let me know.
I think everyone should ditch the junk. Your body needs real food - that's the simple truth. So eat your veggies.
The complicated truth is that people are really sick. Over 50 million people are suffering from autoimmune diseases, 1 out of every 3 women can expect a diagnosis of cancer in her lifetime, most deaths are caused from heart disease.
