Nutrition

Get on the path to a holistic life, beginning with the most foundational form of medicine: food!

Overview of Nutrition

Caring for our bodies often seems like a project so large that it can hard to find a good place to start. At Cellular Healing, we believe in the divine capability of the body to heal and repair itself, beginning with the food and supplements we put into it.  However, we take all the information about nutrition and joint health and simplify your life by focusing on just three components:

  • Mediterranean Diet 
  • Nitric Oxide 
  • Combo of Glucosamine and MSM 

The nutrition program so simple, even your grandmother would approve.

What is Proper Nutrition for Healthy Joints?

An overview of this specific therapy, explained in a way that is comprehensive and concise.

"You are what you eat" many mothers would say when nutrition was much easier to understand. In the past, your mother or grandmother was the only expert and final word on nutrition. Today we have so many options and opinions from many so-called experts who claim to have the latest, most outrageous secret to success. Many of these claims would make your mother laugh. Our goal is to make your life easy, and return to a simpler time where common sense and simple rules guide you back to health.

We have developed a very simple nutritional program which we feel has good scientific evidence to help reduce joint pain and stimulate new cell function and it is easy as One, Two, Three!

One - Stick with one simple diet. We recommend the Mediterranean diet which is easy to follow at home or almost any restaurant. This is a diet using whole grains, vegetables, olive oil and cold water fish. As far as evidence, the Mediterranean diet has more evidence than any other diet to help with some of our most common health conditions such as arthritis and heart disease. If you want more information on this diet, visit: Mediterranean Diet 101

Two - Take Nitric Oxide Supplement. Nitric Oxide is very important to almost all the important biochemical pathways involved in keeping our bodies healthy. As we age, we become deficient in an enzyme which helps convert Nitric Oxide. Replacement of this key component allows most of our biochemical pathways including stem cell pathways to work in an efficient manner. We provide free nitric oxide testing to ensure you are truly deficient as well as monitoring your progress.  Learn more at : Nitric Oxide

Three - Take our joint builder supplement. This takes all the guess work on what types of supplements you should take. This is a combination supplement of glucosamine sulfate, with  powerful additives including Chondroitin Sulfate and MSM which reduce pain and provide the basic building blocks for joints recovering from injury and disease.
