The immune system is a complex network of cells and organs, not confined to any one area of the body. Its purpose is to fight off any foreign substances and mutant cells that threaten our health. Only within the past 30 years have scientists really begun to gain even a fundamental insight of the valuable and intricacy of this system.

Most of today’s degenerative diseases can be traced to a weakened immune system resulting from improper nutrition. For this reason we at the Natural Healing Centre often encourage incorporating dietary and lifestyle modifications to assist and speed-up the healing process.

“Let your food be your medicine and your medicine, your food” These are the words of the Greek sage, Hippocrates, called the Father of Medicine. They are true no less today than they were nearly 3000 years ago. Increasingly medical researchers are finding that dietary and environmental conditions are at the base of many if not most diseases. While a diet with too many excesses can cause chronic degenerative disease, extreme so-called health diets are also responsible for creating long-term nutritional deficiencies. For this reason, those who are able to incorporate the dietary modifications recommended at the East clinic are most likely to experience the fastest and most permanent results.
