“He who takes medicine and neglects his diet, wastes the skill of his physician.” – Ancient Chinese Proverb
Many people go in search of a supplement to be the cure all for their health problems. Supplements can can do some pretty amazing things, when combined with a proper healing diet. Clinically, I have seen many people who actually work against the supplements they take due to the dietary and lifestyle choices they make that are doing more harm than good.
How do you know what foods you are eating are actually hurting more than helping? Many misconceptions abound in the world today with regards to diet and how diet can be used to be healing. One of the most damaging foods that people consume in the world today is dairy. All forms of dairy today are not healthy, including yogurt, milk, cheese, dairy protein powders, cottage cheese and kefir. People sometimes express much disbelief about dairy not being healthy. After all, we have heard all our lives that “milk does a body good”, with celebrities sporting white mustaches supporting and advocating for the consumption of milk and dairy products.
The dairy industry is a very powerful industry that has heavily vested financial interest in getting people to consume milk in order to keep profits high. All this is done at the expense of your health. Clinically, people are advised to come off dairy completely for a short time period of 4 weeks. Dairy is then reintroduced into the diet and usually people will experience some very unpleasant experiences such as gas, bloating, heartburn, diarrhea, stomach pain or discomfort and constipation. The lights turn on and people realize how damaging diary actually is. Dairy is responsible for many of the digestive issues we see in the world today. Digestive issues start a vicious cascade of other health issues.
Other foods like dairy are commonly consumed by people that think they are healthy but are causing more harm then good, negating the use of many of the supplements that people take.
