Holistic Food Tips You May Not Know
- Posted on: Aug 12 2021
Food is medicine. Eating the right foods can improve your health and appearance, and eating the wrong ones can drag you down. Here are a few quick tips that you may not have realized about the food you’re eating!
Diet soda will make you gain weight – People who drink diet soda pop, which is filled with unnaturally sweet sugar substitutes (some of which have been proven to cause cancer in rats), actually have a higher risk of being overweight and developing Type II Diabetes than people who don’t drink it. The sugar substitutes desensitize your taste buds, causing you to crave sweeter and sweeter foods.
Do not combine milk with blueberries – Blueberries are filled with powerful anti-aging, free radical-fighting antioxidants. One study, however, has shown that combining blueberries with milk can block the antioxidant activity of the blueberries. So, if you like fresh blueberries with your cereal or oatmeal, try substituting regular milk for almond milk. It’s better for you anyway!
Organic is more nutritious than conventional – Studies show that organic produce is actually more nutritious than conventional produce, by upwards of 20 percent! It also doesn’t contain the herbicides and pesticides that may cling to conventional produce. The herbicide Roundup is used to gain a better crop yield at the expense of exposing you and your family to a potential human carcinogen. So if you eat conventional produce, make sure to wash it well!
Eggs from pastured chickens are better for you than conventional eggs – Pastured eggs have two times more omega-3 fatty acids, three times more Vitamin E, seven times more beta-carotene, and two-thirds more Vitamin A than conventional eggs. And the chickens are treated more humanely, which is always a good thing.
Simple changes to what you eat can have profound impacts on your health and appearance!

Episode #249 – “Would You Rather:” Functional vs. Traditional Medicine with Dr. Jerry Bailey – Functional medicine doctors think differently than traditional medical doctors.

Cardio or weight lifting? Acupuncture facelift or threadlift? Energy healing or essential oils? It’s a game where the winner is you, since you will get great information and even some laughs.
