Along with our association with The Nutritional Research Foundation, we at QN Organic Self Healing Clinics will continue to study diet styles designed to maximize the body’s own potential for maintenance and restoratoration. Such a diet has the following specific features:
1. High nutrient density which enables the body to maximize healing and repair. Consumption of adequate raw greens and cooked green vegetables in conjunction with beans, nuts, seeds, onions, mushrooms, and a more limited amount of starchy vegetables, carbohydrates, whole grains and fresh fruit to all together supply at least 90 percent of caloric intake.
2. Consumption of plant foods with low caloric density enables feeling “full” with fewer calories. Studies have demonstrated that caloric restriction is associated with increased longevity. A diet with high nutrient content and reduced calories affords powerful self protection against disease. When this type of diet is applied clinically, remarkable health results occur, and you will experience “affordable care” that does really work! The best care is always “self care”!
