Nutrition Talk / Re: Organics
« Last post by annahunnicutt on May 22, 2017, 07:30:09 PM »
I feel like every text that we are reading in our NC101 curriculum speaks to the importance of organics. I also think Michael Pollan (In Defense of Food and An Omnivore's Dilema) is an excellent resource. There are also quite a few documentaries that speak to eating organically and why it is so important, and I wonder if someone not in our program, a "lay person," might be more open to watching a documentary than reading a book. Food Inc, Food Choices, Food Matters and In Defense of Food (like Pollan's book) are a few that come to mind. Good luck with this one!!
Nutrition Talk / How do you help clients stop emotional eating?
« Last post by jenniferfarrington on May 22, 2017, 04:03:27 PM »
I am wondering if anyone has found a successful way to help their clients with emotional eating?  I am new to the nutrition program, but I already worry about this issue.  I have  several family members who are very knowledgeable in the area of health, but obviously struggle with eating what should.  They have gone so far as to have gastric bypass, which did help some, but they are still heavy and have not resolved the real issue.  How do you help when knowledge and self control aren't enough?
Nutrition Talk / Fluoroquinolone Toxicity
« Last post by danagrasman on May 21, 2017, 05:42:49 PM »
I am a new student in the nutrition consultant program. I have been struggling with some serious health problems for the last couple of years that I suspect are the result from be given toxic levels of the antibiotic Levaquin. I am looking for reputable sources of information on how to holistically treat mitochondrial damage. I am also curious to know if the nerve and tendon damage that I have suffered is permanent. Allopathic doctors have rendered useless, so I am hoping that there is a Naturopath or functional medicine doctor combing the questions.. Thanks
Nutrition Talk / Re: Potato, Dairy, Soy Free Supplements Recommendations
« Last post by liachiccehitto on May 21, 2017, 03:41:15 PM »
I have found some really great supplements at Whole Foods. The staff there and at Sprouts Farmers Market (if you have these near you) are very helpful and knowledgeable and can help you find supplements that meet your dietary needs. I went in a few months ago to ask for soy-free, vegan multivitamins and they were able to meet my needs! When cost is an issue, I shop in-store but purchase online from Amazon or another online retailer.

Ortho Molecular and Gaia supplements have also been recommended to me by a holistic nutritionist. The ones in my cupboard do not specifically state potato-free, but they are soy- and dairy-free!
Nutrition News & Research / Nutrition & Lups
« Last post by sarahdeslippe on May 21, 2017, 10:33:49 AM »
Hi everyone!

I was wondering if anyone has worked with clients with lupus and what their experiences are? I have a potential client with lupus, which I have never encountered before. Are there any places people would recommend that provide great scientific research on diet and lupus? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all!
Nutrition Talk / Scleroderma
« Last post by Nicole Nada on May 20, 2017, 12:45:48 PM »
Hi.  I've read all of the autoimmune posts here and so appreciate all of the sharing of knowledge.  I have a vegan client who has Scleroderma and I'm hoping to help her figure out a great diet and lifestyle.  I am thinking to focus on adrenal support and maybe some herbal topical for her skin.  I will have her test for Vit D levels and I imagine she is low on B-12  too.   She does take a multi.  I have read here on the Bauman Forum about no nuts/seeds and seaweed and also the importance of low protein.  What is the reasoning for low protein?  Is it about kidney stress? And why does Paleo community say they can help people with autoimmune.  And why specifically nuts and seeds and seaweed?  I appreciate any advice or info!    My client was all set to do Gerson Therapy which is mostly fruit and vegetables, but my inclination (with my limited knowledge) was to steer her toward healthy fats and proteins for building and support.  The only fats allowed is flax oil.  I am also working with her re: stress and she realizes the link for sure (i.e .flare ups/spreading during high stress times).  And lastly, I read the former posts here, but does anyone have an update or new info/insight re: citrus and autoimmune?  Scleroderma websites say steer clear of citrus.

I love that there is a box I can mark below that says "Don't use smileys" --that is hilarious
THANK YOU! In health! ~Nicole Nada
Recipe Exchange / Nut Milk (Kid Approved)
« Last post by jessicaruiz on May 20, 2017, 11:17:07 AM »
Hello -  I recently started making my own almond milk as my stomach does not do well on cows milk.  I usually just blend the nuts, water, and add some cinnamon to mine and it works for me.

I have now noticed that my son gets upset stomachs after he drinks cow milk.  I had him try my milk and of course he made that "this is nasty" face. 

I was wondering if anyone had any good nut milk recipes they could share with me.  Maybe something that is a little sweet that my son may enjoy.

Nutrition Talk / Global Medicine Hunter Question
« Last post by cassadyatkins on May 18, 2017, 01:16:01 PM »
In an interview I recently listened to Dr. Meg Jordan was stressing the use of local and seasonal ingredients.  I completely agree with the statement that what might be good for someone in one part of the world doesn't mean it should be globalized and therefore shipped thousands of miles away so everyone can get the same benefits from it.  She encouraged us all to eat what was around us to better connect to the land on a spiritual and biological level. 
My question is- how local are we talking? County, state, region, country?  Also, what about if someone moves or spends an extended period in a different part of the world.  For example, I'm originally from Arkansas but living in Colorado now.  There are a few differences in the seasons and types of fruits, vegetables, and meats available to me currently.  In a broader sense, if I wanted to move to the Mediterranean the fare available and diet I'd have would look vastly different than it does at this time. 
Does the types of food we as individuals flourish on depend on where we originated or currently live?
If so, what are those parameters?
How much is ingrained in us and how much do we adapt?
