GET TO THE ROOT.
Test. Don't Guess.
At the root of RHR is nothing more than a passion to help individuals navigate their way to optimal health. The power of this enslavement crushing approach stems from its deliberative, results-tested and integrative diagnostic system: identify and address the most fundamental cause(s) of illness in order to achieve lasting results and natural vitality.
Well intentioned supplementation, be it with a multivitamin, even probiotics and fish oils, introduces great unknowns. We like to think of any supplement regimen as a short term loan while we figure out why your body isn't producing or assimilating these nutrients from food. "Test, don't guess" is something of a mantra in functional medicine because we believe that knowing where you're at is essential for mapping out how to get to where you want to be.
PEOPLE ARE TAKING THEIR HEALTH CARE INTO THEIR OWN HANDS AS NEVER BEFORE.
ARE YOU GETTING YOUR BRASSICA ?
Sulforaphane is a cancer fighting phytochemical found in cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, kale, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and broccoli, collards, bok choy, arugula, watercress and radishes. While it appears most effective against cancers of the colon and prostate, it is also being studied for its effects against many other cancers including pancreatic and breast cancers, leukemia and melanoma. Three day old broccoli sprouts are believed to have the largest amounts of this compound, containing 100 times more than the mature plant. (Will have to get back to you about radish and kale sprouts' content.) But don't go nuts, especially if you're in hypothyroid territory, as eating too much of just about anything raw in the Brassica family can interfere with iodine and selenium uptake. Another clever aphorism of functional medicine goes something like this: "Too much of a good thing can be bad."
