There is without doubt a vital connection between many medical conditions and disorders and the nutrition of the patient. If we put wrong or inadequate fuel in our bodies, they will cease to function normally and symptoms of disorder will be the result. Much to Dr. Campbell-McBride’s surprise, very few doctors had bothered to research this connection, preferring instead to rely on the traditional diagnoses and treatment with drugs. Let us make it quite clear here and now, we are not saying that all medical conditions can be treated without drugs. We are saying that many conditions can be avoided and their symptoms reduced by following the principals of proper nutrition.

Frankly, the food most of us eat is chosen for convenience and taste alone without any consideration as to whether it is good for us or not. It really is amazing that we will take better care of our cars and houses than we will of our bodies. If someone told us to put cheap dirty fuel into our cars which would probably destroy the engine, we would react with disbelief at such an outrageous idea, and yet we do it every day to our bodies.

 So what can we do about it?

Modern foods are processed from the minute they begin their place in nature. In the soil they are bombarded with pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides most of which stay on or in the food right through to the point that you eat it. Animal products are treated with hormones, antibiotics, and synthetic stimulants to enhance growth and therefor increase their value at market. To preserve them through their life on the shelf they are treated with preservatives. To enhance their flavour and colour they are pumped full of other chemicals which have no place in nutrition. These also finish up inside you. Your body needs a regular supply of essential nutrients which are missing in these modern foods. It needs a large and well balanced variety of minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients to combat these unwanted ingredients, and to strengthen the body against failure to function normally.

It is with these facts in mind that Dr. Campbell-McBride advises her patients in private practice, and now wants to respect your right to know them as well. She has researched many of the so called “food supplements” that are on the market, and is dismayed at how useless many of them are.

We will make you a promise here and now.
