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 by medications, pollution, processed foods, etc. Do you want to improve your health, but don’t know where to start? That is what MCVitamins is about.
This is a Health Education Site. We want to get you on the road to health – sometimes that means finding what deficiencies you have to fix before you can start to build health – but we are determined to help you find your path.
We believe in Functional Medicine. It is defined as: “affecting the operation, rather than the structure, of an organ” In other words, you can address a stomach ulcer by surgery, cutting out the damaged area – affecting the structure – or you can address the function of the stomach so the body is not creating ulcers. Instead of a structural dentist drilling out decay from a tooth and filling it with a foreign substance (changing the structure), you can find out that decay is actually the demineralization of teeth, and that you have to change your diet, so that the body can re-mineralize your teeth. (see dental health)
Functional Medicine is: “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 promoting health beyond just the absence of disease. The focus is finding the cause of the problem and getting the body to fix that. You might need to focus on building healthy nerves when they are painful or addressing heavy metal toxicity when it is raising blood pressure. There are many causes of symptoms. Finding the actual cause and addressing it by building health is functional medicine.
Instead of trying to prevent or stop disease, isn’t it better to start building health. As you build health, you will make changes for the better on a continual basis.”
We add information to our site as we investigate things you should know and supplements that we find to work. We have educational videos (no, it’s not the sales type) where you can learn from Dr. Berg how things work (he does constant research and we include it as they are very enlightening).
We have education on Immunity as it is very important to our health and lives. When you have a healthy immune system you don’t worry about microbes invading your body.

The purpose of our site is giving you information on how you can use nutrition to survive the environment that we live in along with all the problems that comes along with that.
In the past, a person’s life expectancy was much lower than 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 infectious 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 vitamins, 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.
