Is it Fat? Or could it be PHAT?

Have you tried to lose weight? Have you increased your exercise? Reduced your calories? You’ve done all this and yet the weight stays on. You’re tired and have only a portion of your former energy and stamina. It could be that you are at the mercy of an imbalance of PHAT. If the thyroid is weakened, we may suggest using a product like Millers Thyroid Support, or if it appears that adrenal function is impaired then we might use Millers Adrenal Support.

Why are Vitamins, Minerals and Nutrients Important?

Throughout approximately 99% of mankind’s existence, 100% of the calories in our diets came from the nutrient-rich tissues of plants and animals that had grown in nature – without the addition of antibiotics, growth hormones, pesticides, insecticides or herbicides.

Today, approximately two-thirds of the calories in the American diet come from the following four food groups that are basically devoid of nutrition: processed sugar, fats and oils, processed grains and alcohol.

Your nutritional status can affect:

  • Fatigue
  • Sleeplessness
  • Irritability
  • Overweight
  • Menopausal Symptoms
  • Listlessness
  • Loss of Vitality -Stress
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Anxiety
  • G.I. Issues
  • Attention Disorders
  • Allergies

A U.S. Department of Agriculture Nutritional Survey disclosed the following data: Percentage of Americans receiving below the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA):

  • Vitamin B6 80 %
  • Magnesium 75 %
  • Calcium 68 %
  • Vitamin A 50 %
  • Vitamin B-1 45 %
  • Vitamin C 41 %
  • Vitamin B-2 34 %
  • Vitamin B-12 34 %
  • Vitamin B-3 34 %

Prescription Drug Therapies and Over-The-Counter Drugs (OTC)

Drug-Induced Nutritional Depletions: Many people who regularly take prescription drugs are also “nutritionally challenged.” Numerous categories of drugs deplete nutrients, including estrogen-containing medications, diuretics, cholesterol-lowering drugs, NSAIDS, anti-convulsants, antibiotics, ulcer medications, antidepressants, tranquilizers, etc.

Long-term use of these types of medications and many of the Over-the-Counter (OTC) medications used today will require counseling about drug-induced nutritional depletions. We call it side-effect management through nutritional intervention.
