The ABC Plus D Approach

Overview

Where to Begin?

Back to Basics

With the recent explosion in medical research on the health benefits of herbs, and the resulting media attention toward nutritional supplements, more and more people are becoming convinced that they should be supplementing their diets. However, most people are confused about what they really need to be taking. To make matters worse, every individual has unique biological needs based on his or her history, genetic makeup and lifestyle. There is no "one size fits all" when it comes to nutritional supplements. In order to clear up some of this confusion, we have developed the ABC plus D Approach.

Instead of the "one size fits all" approach, the ABC plus D approach is a specific plan to help you develop a personalized nutritional program that will allow you to get the most benefit from what nutritional science has to offer.

ABC plus D stands for Activate, Build, Cleanse and Direct aid.

The A stands for Activate. The human body has a remarkable inherent capability of self-repair, providing it has sufficient energy and raw materials. However, after years of stress or neglect, or from eating too many devitalized processed foods, the body's self-repair mechanisms can become sluggish. Certain energy supplements can help wake up the body's energy systems, stimulating its healing ability. These supplements include homeopathic formulations—including the Flower Remedies mentioned in the previous lesson, the essential oils used in aromatherapy, and the enzymes that are used to aid digestion.


Certain supplements are referred to as energy supplements because— rather than supplying nutritional "building blocks"—they provide energy which . . .

can "wake up" a sluggish body.
can "activate" the healing process.
can "stimulate" the body to begin the building and repairing process.
All of the above.
