At The Natural Health and Healing Center, we want to make it easier for you lead a nutritious life. With fast food too readily available, junk food or self-proclaimed “nutritious” or “natural” snacks prominently displayed in the grocery stores, with misleading nutrition facts and claims of “quick diet fixes,” we understand that it takes extra effort to make the lifestyle and food changes that your body needs.
With that in mind, we suggest the following websites, apps, podcasts and other tools that can help make it easier for you to stay on track with your path to healthy living:
Localharvest.org: This website is a good resource for finding local farmers markets, CSAs, food co-ops, farm stands, and pick-your-own fruits and vegetables. It’s a good resource for local farms that produce organic produce. The website states that it “…connects people looking for good food with the farmers who produce it. Buying local is about enjoying real food, grown yourself or purchased from people you trust. It’s about developing strong local economies and producing food on a human scale.”
Interested in learning more about nutrition but just don’t have the time to read? Podcasts are a great way to dive into a topic or deepen your understanding of a subject, since podcasts can be downloaded and listened to whenever you have the chance, whether on the treadmill or commuting to work. (ref: U.S. News and World Report).
Wise Choice Traditions Podcast: This podcast is brought to you by the Weston A. Price Foundation, committed to wise traditions in food, farming, and the healing arts. Host and health coach Hilda Labrada Gore conducts down-to-earth interviews with leading health and wellness experts (scientists, doctors, farmers, physical therapists, and more) to uncover practical tips from the past for optimal health today.
If you are looking for shorter “bite-sized” podcasts to subscribe to, The Nutrition Diva dishes out a fresh topic about three times every month. Her posts are about 10 minutes or less, and typically focus on a question or problem, like her recent post on how to slow down the muscle loss that occurs as we age.
The Natural Health and Healing Center Materials:
In addition to all the great online resources, the office of The Natural Health and Healing Center is happy to be your primary resource. As part of the Nutrition Response Testing Program, Dr. Nelson provides “homework” or resources in the forms of recipes, fact sheets, shopping guides, books, and more!
In addition to The Natural Health and Healing Center Blog, another informative website is The Wise Choice Market which has a few blogs attached to their website. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of traditional, nutrient-dense, cholesterol-rich foods, there is Mother Nature Obeyed, or learn about raw milk, in The Campaign for Real Milk blog, and their own Recipe of the Week.
