  How to survive in spite of a fast food lifestyle


Do you want to know what vitamins to take to compensate when you just can't eat right? Do you want to know what healthy food choices you should make?  Do you know what a "healthy diet" really is?   Or what to do when you eat at your favorite fast food restaurant? What you can do to combat the assault on our bodies of everyday modern living which includes all the deficiencies created with medications, etc.  Do you want to improve your health, but don't know where to start?  That is what McVitamins is about.

We want to get you on the road to health - sometimes that means finding what deficiencies you have before you can start to build basic health - but we are determined to help you find your path.

We believe in Functional Medicine.  It is defined as: 

Functional is defined as  "affecting the operation, rather than the structure, of an organ"

"Medical practice or treatments that focus on optimal functioning of the body and its organs, usually involving systems of holistic or alternative medicine."

"You don't have to have a disease to benefit from functional medicine"

The focus of functional medicine is on patient-centered care, promoting health as a positive vitality, beyond just the absence of disease.

Where to start: Health Conditions - An introduction.  What is good health?

The purpose of our site is giving you information on how you can use nutrition to survive the fast food lifestyle that we live in along with all the problems that comes along with that life style.

In the past, a person's life expectancy was much lower then today. This was due to the fact that many people died at an early age due to infections, plagues and accidents. That changed as a lot of the deadly diseases were eradiated by improved public hygiene with adequate supply of clean water and the safe disposal of sewage.  Added to that were an understanding of and remedies for infections and a lowered accident rate due to safety rules and procedures. 

Now we "live longer", but really most people die a slow progressive death. Most people live with and die of degenerative diseases from other causes - high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, cancer, etc.

“Degenerative diseases – heart attacks, arteriosclerosis, cancer, stroke, arthritis, hypertension, ulcers, and all the rest – have replaced infections diseases as the major enemies of life and destroyers of its quality.”  The Body Electric by Robert O.Becker, MD. And Gary Selden

Even if you were exposed to toxins, the body should be able handle it with a healthy immune system (which is hard to have with poor nutrition).  Cellular malnutrition is a prominent cause of ill health. So, what do you need to do....

We believe in is building good health.  When you build good health, disease tends to fade away.  The body needs certain nutrients in order to function. repair itself and remain healthy.  When you don't get those nutrients in the food you eat, or when you build up toxins which your body has to fight (toxins from processed food, drugs, or the air you breathe), your body depletes itself of the nutrients that it needs to be healthy.  Even medical drugs have many side effects due to the nutritional deficiencies that they create. 

Sometimes you need more of specific nutrients.   If you drive your car down the road at a moderate pace, you use up a certain amount of gasoline.  If, however, you take that car onto the freeway and speed the same amount of miles, you will use up more of gasoline.  It is similar with the body.  You need certain nutrients to survive.  If you are exposed to toxins, you need certain specific nutrients.  If you have physical stress or mental stress, you need more nutrients.  

So, what do you need to survive? 

We offer you information on how to start to  improve your health and to know what nutrients to take.  We also have our RECOMMENDED feature.  We have researched various vitamin, minerals, herbal and various other formulas and when we find what works best, we pass it on.   When we find a nutrition book worth reading we will also pass it on.
