I have been a PT for nearly 35 years and I have treated all kinds of conditions from minor orthopedic injuries to major orthopedic surgeries and many neurological conditions. I have treated 1 week old newborns to patients over 100 years old. I have treated patients who live in urban, suburban, and rural communities. I have treated people who are from all over the world. I have treated the very rich, the extremely poor and everyone in-between.
What do all these people have in common? They all need proper nutrition to heal faster and better. Without proper building materials, a construction project will be delayed or may fail! The body is no different. The body needs the correct combination of proteins, fats, carbs (actually there are no essential carbs needed for life), minerals, vitamins, fiber, etc. The body needs these items to build new tissue, maintain vital body functions, fight off disease, and repair injured tissues.
“Food-like substances” such as seed oil, many processed foods, alcohol, high fructose corn syrup, and SUGAR not only substantially reduce the body’s ability to heal but are also poison to the body, which will ultimately reduce the person’s lifespan. That is a strong statement but it is true and supported by modern food science research performed at highly prestigious institutions such as Harvard Medical School, Buck Institute, MIT and by many others.

Our patients at Apogee Therapy Center are provided opportunities to learn about food science applications to facilitate a quicker and much better recovery from their treatment condition. I personally practice what I preach and I have been able to heal much faster and more comprehensively from injuries I have sustained.
