The question, "How do you feel about vitamins and supplements?" is often asked by those who are new to what the Creative Health Institute Living Foods Program is about.
We believe that Dr. Ann Wigmore was correct in her position when she stated, "If you need supplements or vitamins, you just haven't learned how to eat yet."
And, of course, Living Foods have an organic basis that is only corrupted when synthetic chemicals are introduced into the culture. When supplements are compounded from life forms then we like to know what the natural source is and how it is made available to animals and humans. Often these are guarded secrets and effort is made to promote the product without disclosing where the "beneficial" elements come from.
A great example is zinc, that is effective with many or most male prostate disorders. Mineral zinc is not nearly as effective (if at all) as adding raw pumpkin seed to the diet, which I have seen correct advanced prostate disorder in as little as six weeks when a Raw Food diet is employed.
So, the answer to "do we believe in vitamins and supplements?" is that most of us who are accomplished in this detoxification and rejuvenation program remain well and avoid supplements, while admitting that we all had our expensive bout with them.
Unfortunately, marketing is so powerful that people buy the claims and try them, then jump to another claim still seeking results unnaturally.
If you call fresh wheat grass juice a supplement, then you have a point. The difference is, "natural, or unnatural?"
