What exactly is Designed Clinical Nutrition?
First of all, Designed Clinical Nutrition is not vitamins, as in "over-the-counter." Those are frequently coal-tar reproductions of isolated chemical formulas of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. They are not only frequently made from coal-tars, but also lack the synergistic elements normally present in WHOLE foods.
An example of a whole food could be carrots. Carrots are high in Vitamin A COMPLEX. A "complex" is something with many different parts that work together. Synthetic vitamin A does not contain the whole "Vitamin A Complex" found in nature. So, if we were looking for a food high in Vitamin A, carrots might be one of our choices.
Vitamins that are being used all over today generally only have a small percentage of their actual content from natural sources to be labeled "natural." In any case, because they are not derived from whole foods, they often make you more deficient and nutritionally out-of-balance and can create other problems because they do not contain all of the co-factors found in nature which make the vitamins work.
"Designed Clinical Nutrition" is exactly that: designed (especially prepared based on a specific plan) clinical (pertaining to the results gotten in clinical use or actual practice) nutrition (real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully).
It is whole food in a tablet, designed to match the needs of the specific acupuncture or reflex points found on your individual CRA analysis. These are nutrients you are simply not getting or assimilating in your current diet. This may be due to your personal eating habits and routines, but it is definitely due in large extent to the lack of quality in the foods commercially available in grocery stores or restaurants
