Nutrition (1)

Should I be taking supplements?

First and foremost you should be eating the most nutrient dense foods you can get your hands on!  Why?  Because most of the food we eat is so depleted of nutrients, most of us are nutrient depleted ALL the time.  Diet is the first place to start.  Supplements are exactly what their name implies- Supplements to a healthy diet.  I know you know this, but it’s good to be reminded- ALL the time!  Marketing has a way of always telling us the opposite, so I’m helping to reprogram your mind :) .  EAT REAL FOOD, as close to nature as possible, in season, organic and from Farmers- the real heroes!!  Ps: Farmers are SEXY!  Yes, I said it, I mean come on they are the people responsible for our healthy, beautiful, energetic and gorgeous bodies!!!

Ok, back to the question….

I generally am a Whole Foods for Life cheerleader!  When we eat whole foods, our body, nutrients, stress levels etc are all in balance.  Eat refined processed foods and you start to experience fatigue, low iron, nutrient depletion etc…WHY?  Because the parts of the food that contains all the nutrients is removed during processing!  When we eat depleted food, it can start to draw nutrients out of our body, further depleting us.

My TOP recommendations are:

  • Clean up your diet, add in some juices or green smoothies.
  • DO a cleanse 2X’s/year to reset your body and clear out the junk (in the trunk).
  • TRY some super foods. Green algaes for ex; contain a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, blood cleansing chlorophyll, iron, protein, essential fatty acids…etc.
  • If you’re still feeling off you can get  a simple blood test to see where you may be lacking.
  • TOP supplements to consider: B12 if you’re vegan (especially nearing 3yr), Vitamin D, Omega 3 (fish, flax, chia oil).
  • Make sure you are purchasing high-quality, not drug store brands that may be full of fillers.

Praise

"Elizabeth Campbell is a thorough, insightful, and most importantly thoughtful nutritionist. She is very informative and very passionate about educating me on nutrition with the purpose of promoting a balanced lifestyle change rather than a quick fix. For me, I also really appreciate that she gives me small attainable steps to work on rather than overwhelming me with a complete overhaul of things to do, buy, etc. I am very thankful for her help in clearing up my skin!
