Our Food Design Concept
“Let food be thy medicine”
This quote from Greek physician Hippocrates is over 2000 years old and yet it is still true today!
A healthy body is immune to cavities!
Then how can cavities be the number one common disease?
Why are our teeth getting softer and more porous?
In the West our diet no longer resembles a natural diet. Instead of hunting, fishing, and gathering and chewing on real, solid food, we mainly consume processed products such as flour, sugar, conventional milk, and refined oils that contain almost no real nutrients when compared to real food.
In the past few years, diets and nutrition trends have thankfully been moving towards a nutrition mindset. New nutrition books and trends are constantly emerging – Paleo, Keto, carnivore, vegetarian, vegan, low carb, high carb, blood group nutrition, intermittent fasting and so on! In this nutrition jungle, almost no one can find their way.
We believe nutrition is the basis for health, that’s why we have developed the Nutrition Design Concept over the past few years working with thousands of patients.
“Thinking in Nutrients”
This is the name of our concept that works for all mindsets, whether plant-based, carnivore, or a mix of everything. It’s about being mindful of the quality of the food and the nutrients we consume, as food is much more than just calories and macronutrients like protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Food is actually stored information.
The Food Design Concept is an instruction manual for a long-term nutritional approach that leads to optimal health. Your body will thank you when you become the architect of your health. The structure could not be simpler. There is a red table and a green table.
80% of all chronic illnesses are directly related to lifestyle & diet.
Step 1: The Red Table
If you want optimal health, the best way to get there is to not to jeopardize it in the first place, which is exactly what happens when you eat a conventional diet.
On the red table, you will find “THE CORE 4”, these are all the inflammation-promoting foods that you should avoid completely.
- Gluten-containing foods and grains
- Conventional dairy products (raw milk, butter, cream, goat, sheep, and buffalo are okay)
- Refined sugar
- Refined vegetable oils: such as rapeseed, sunflower, safflower, soybean, and grape seed oil.
Basically, you should avoid 100% of all processed foods and all fried foods and focus on natural foods in the green table.
Don’t ruin your health!
Step 2: The Green Table
This table is built from macronutrients; protein, good carbs, and healthy fats. The distribution of fats and carbohydrates is based on the individual body composition of the patient, but it can be said that most people will begin with the LIFE CHANGER concept to address common insulin resistance.
In the end, it is a kind of low-carb, medium-protein, medium-fat diet. More information can be found in the booklet and our online course.
Think in nutrients!
Why is what you eat so important before Health Optimization week?
In standard dentistry, people are operated on more or less as they come in off the street. The only preparation for surgery they do is taking medications or reading an information booklet. That means that the dental work they receive is likely to be a huge shock to the body.
Most postoperative traumas such as swelling, pain, and inflammation are not just side effects of the operation, but are mainly a sign that the body isn’t able to deal with the operation.
This is important for not only people undergoing surgery, but should be practiced by everyone, most of the time. The best thing a person can do for their teeth and general health is to have a healthy diet.
