At East Winds, we believe you are not only “what” you eat, but also how efficiently you absorb your food.

Our goal is to provide you with the tools and knowledge to learn how to take care of your health.  People may think that HEALTH means good nutrition, exercise, weight management, and good sleep hygiene.

But wellness is really a holistic event comprised of eight mutually interdependent dimensions: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, vocational, financial, and environmental. Some aspects of these eight dimensions are out of our control, but we still have a choice as “how” to respond.

We believe knowledge is power, and we do our best to help you make good decisions about your lifestyle as well as what nutrients are best for your individual needs, thus giving you the power to become the best kind of person that your potential, circumstances, and fate will allow.

We know that too many carbs can cause insulin resistance. Our cells shut down and are no longer able to accept nutrients.  If cells are constantly bombarded with sugar, they literally stop absorbing by shutting down. They are very smart.  Too much sugar will cause cell death, referred to as “apoptosis”.

When we make good choices about what we eat, it allows our cells to readily accept the nutrients provided.  This requires a “paradigm” shift from sources we have trusted.
