We recommend using whole foods to nourish the body and give the essential nutrients necessary to heal and maintain health. Many of us live in a fast paced world where our lifestyles have lost the way of all natural foods prepared from scratch. If we choose to eat the Standard American Diet (SAD diet) because it's easier and convenient, then we should also be seeking high quality, nutrient dense supplements to make up for our nutrient deficiency.
Our office recommends "Juice Plus", the next best thing to fruits and vegetables, because it is a whole food supplement containing nutrients from 17 different fruits and vegetables. Patients can sign up for their child or grand child to receive the juice plus for free! For more information on free nutrition for your children, please contact our office or also see http://www.childrenshealthstudy.com/ We have also partnered with high quality, whole food supplement and herbal support companies to give the very best support for the best healing and maintaining of health. Dr. Tolman is trained and has continued his knowledge on all the latest nutritional research so he can give the best recommendations according to each individual needs.
We also understand the necessity of fish oil supplementation for every patient because of the benefits to pregnant women, mothers and children, patients who suffer with depression and inflammation and even dementia. High quality fish oil that is molecularly distilled from contaminates should only be used. Many big box stores carry low quality products that will not deliver the quantity of Omega 3's needed. Contact our office for more information on how we can serve you and your family in meeting your nutritional deficiencies.
Top 3 nutrients we should all consider taking in addition to a complex food supplement:
- Omega 3 fatty acids: 1-3 grams per day.
- Vitamin D3: 1000-5000 IU's per day
- Probiotics: Live culture or high quality/quantity product daily for 2 weeks every 3-6 months.
Specific protocols of herbs and food concentrate supplements from Standard Process can be recommended for patients or those consulting for nutritional counseling.
