“The Dr. of the Future will give little medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
- Thomas Edison

America is Facing an Epidemic
Obesity is the second largest preventable cause of death in the US. Smoking is the first.

The US is the fattest nation in the world. The average adult gains seven pounds during the holidays. 64.5% of Americans are overweight. Source: JAMA 2002; 288: 1723. The problem is so bad life expectancies could begin to decline. Obesity may be linked to other health issues such as diabetes, kidney disease and strokes.

Houston Texas ranked as the fattest city in the United States four out of five years from 2000- 2005. In 2009 we ranked sixth.

Nutritional Findings
One-hundred years ago people didn't eat processed foods, there weren't any! Food had a very short shelf life. People ate FRESH meat, FRESH fruit, FRESH vegetables and grains weren't overly processed. Today our bodies are more toxic due to increased stress, food coloring, food preservatives, pollution, and added hormones. Due to over utilized fields, crop soils have become depleted of vitamins and minerals making it necessary to add chemically treated fertilizers. Almost all processed foods contain milk, corn, wheat and soy; leading to intolerances and toxicities.

Nutritional deficiencies and chronic degenerative changes have become common in our modern world. Our diets no longer resemble what our bodies were originally designed to assimilate. Our toxic exposures exceed normal abilities. As a result, nutritional therapy has been developed as a way to support us in our changing world. We need to adopt eating habits more like those of our ancestors.

At Crawford Wellness Center, we encourage our patients to include a nutritional evaluation as part of their total wellness program. Most of our physical conditions respond and may even resolve with specific nutritional support.
