Usually, when a person has an ailment, e.g. fatigue, digestive problems, here's what they do to get relief, in this order.
FIRST. Drugs (pharmaceuticals). That's the speeding bullet...But because of side effects, or because some people's bodies cannot take the drugs, they go to 2...LAST, if anyone thinks of it at all, is their food. What they put on their plates three or more times per day.
SECOND. Nutraceuticals and synthetic supplements . Those can have good effects, although also with some side effects. Often the effects may not last.
THIRD. Medicinal herbs, whole food supplements.
Here's Dr. Heidi's surprising finding with the ER Fat Burn participants. (They came to lose fat and inches, but most folks also had other little ailments, from digestive troubles to mood swings to zip energy and flakey skin.)
"When I begin people with a real food plan, there's really very little more I have to add. Sometimes I add whole food supplements, sometimes I add nutraceuticals and sometimes I say, 'Go to your doctor and get a prescription for bio-identical hormones or what-have-you'.The implication of this finding, if it holds up with other people (about 69 in ER Fat Burn so far) is quite stunning:
"But," she adds, "that's only after they've done a real food plan that is directed at their ailments."
To address an ailment, try real food first. Everything else (1-3) second.Could one, by trying real food first, save enough on 1-3 above, especially 1, for a new place in Hawaii or the Hamptons?
