Majority of people today consume products which deprive them of vitamins and minerals. The most dangerous among them are foods which contain high glucose or high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), refined sugar (hidden in many different products), polished rice, and refined flour products such as white bread, doughnuts, cakes, biscuits, or refined pasta. Also the use of popular stimulants such as caffeine products, chocolate, alcohol, tobacco, etc. greatly contribute to nutritional deficiencies.
Unfortunately, due to the fact that we’ve been using artificial fertilizers for a very long time the concentration of minerals in the soil today is 70 to 100 % lower than it was a hundred years ago. As a result also food we consume is mostly deprived of proper amount of nutrients.
It means that even if our diet is healthy and consists of only unrefined foods we can’t be sure today we provide our body with sufficient amount of nutrients.
For this reason, and in addition to the 6 critical foods, I always recommend the list of presented in this section most important vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals in the form of good quality supplements as they help to recover faster and greatly improve the effectiveness of the whole therapy.
