"Our food should be our medicine and our            
medicine should be our food."   
The most important aspect of health is proper nutrition which starts pre-conception with parents. The average American is exposed to not only environmental toxins, but food-related toxins taken in through the "Standard American Diet" (SAD), which is loaded with non-nutritious, chemically-laden and processed foods that do not promote good health and severely challenge our immune systems. It is critical, now more than ever, that children are raised with a foundation of good nutrition, which will promote a lifetime of good health. Dr. Dumovic recommends whole food supplements and herbs, through which a nutritional gap in the "Standard American Diet" (SAD) is filled, exercise, (aerobic 3 times weekly for 30 minutes, as well as weight bearing exercises), rest and stress reduction; all of these elements are critical to good health. It is important for children to get lots of fresh air and exercise.

Dietary Dos...
  1. Drink plenty of pure water (3-4 glasses children, 6-8 adults)
  2. Eat lots of fresh vegetables and fruit, raw or lightly steamed
  3. Always start the day with a good breakfast
  4. Organic whenever possible
  5. Whole grains as much as possible
  6. Read labels: if you don't know what it is or can't pronounce it, don't eat it
  7. Avoid fried foods as much as possible (french fries, etc.)
  8. Avoid things in a bag (chips, etc. These cause the body to crave food low in nutrients and build body fats, leading to diabetes and cardiovascular disease)

...And Don'ts
  1. Drink soda (pop), coffee and alcohol
  2. Foods with high fructose corn syrup
  3. Foods with hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats
  4. Too much sugar (it kills white blood cells)
  5. Refined grains
  6. Foods with artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners (causes hyperactivity in children)
  7. Margarine
  8. Refined soy products
  9. Pasteurized milk products (the heating process destroys beneficial bacteria and enzymes which results in the body's inability to utilize the calcium and protein)
  10. Canola oil
  11. Fast food restaurants (these are highly processed foods low in nutrients high in fats, carbohydrates, sugars and toxins)
  12. Pork and processed meats
