Food for Thought


The covalently bound minerals and nutrients that the body needs are supplied, readily, by the fresh vegetables and fruit we consume.  Mother Nature starts the process for us by extracting nutrients from the earth, and converting the inorganic forms into organic forms that we need to sustain life.  For example, Sodium, a very necessary electrolyte, is always present in two forms.

In the organic form, it helps to buffer many of the acidic reactions that take place in the body, and helps to maintain a healthy blood pressure.  As an inorganic salt, it is virtually impossible for the body to utilize, and becomes a molecule that hangs on to water and causes the blood pressure to rise.

This is also true of  another important mineral, Calcium.  The organic form has many useful functions in the body, and is used to help build bones, teeth, regulate the blood pressure.  But, in the inorganic form, it gets excreted or packed around the ribs, or plays havoc with the pH in your stomach.

Food for Growth


All humans are chemical factories, ablaze with furnaces within that process our food and extract the nutrients, which are, in turn, used to build new cells.  Groups of cells are organized into organs, and groups of organs are further organized into systems.
Chemicals in the forms of minerals, salts, proteins, fats, acids, buffers, catalysts, sugars and other carbohydrates, along with water, oxygen, and metals are pretty much what we are made of.

The bonds which connect the components listed in the previous paragraph are easily breakable, co-valent bonds.  It takes very little energy to pull elements off a molecule and re-arrange them to form new compounds.

The building blocks of these molecules are derived from the nutrients present in our food.  In the case of a child in the womb, the nutrients have already been extracted from the mother’s food, and are transmitted via the placenta.

These co-valently (shared electron) bonded nutrients are often referred to as the organic form of the mineral or metal.

Another form exists, and that is the inorganic form or the ionic bonded form of the mineral.  Organic forms are easily used by the body, while inorganic or ionically bound minerals are not, as it takes much more energy to break apart the exchanged electrons in this type of chemical bond.

The chemistry of Life is truly different from the chemistry of the test tube.  Visit the trained, experienced and credentialed staff of The Natural Path at our Virginia Beach location for the application of this knowledge to your own health issues.  We’re here to help.

Product Showcase … TSW #1 Super Antioxidant Formula!

"This is a SUPER supplement!
…”I have been using this product for many years, and I wouldn’t want to be without it”…Dr. Diana Pengitore, ND

Introducing our own super antioxidant formulaTSW#1!  This product far exceeds what is expected of a dietary supplement.

TSW#1 has been in the development phase for over 6 years.  THIS PRODUCT IS SAFE FOR DIABETICS!  Designed for daily use, TSW#1 will supply most of what you need in the way of nutrition.  The emphasis has been placed in antioxidant power, and this product performs most admirably!  Starting ORAC values exceed 11,000 per serving.  Serving size is 8.3 grams (one tablespoon).  Clumping is not a problem with this product, and the taste is extremely pleasant (cherry-vanilla)!  For those of you who find the taste too strong, you merely need to add more liquid.  I recommend 8-12 ounces of fluid to one tablespoon of concentrated powder.  It is most refreshing and energizing just prior to a treadmill session.


All of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants are completely food-derived.  There are NO artificial colors, flavors, or additives.  Contains NO salt, dairy, sugar, soy or yeast.  This product is GLUTEN FREE!  Each serving contains 4.0 grams of vitamin C in a pH buffered format.  The most potent food-derived antioxidants have been included in this recipe to supply you with those bioflavinoids and olimeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) that are so expensive in other products.

Antioxidants scavenge free radicals and essentially neutralizes them from causing oxidative stress on the cellular level.  In metals, oxidation is the corrosive process that causes deterioration (rust).  In the human body, oxidation shortens cell life, and enhances inflammatory processes causing a strain on the immune response.  Inflammation causes redness, swelling, itching, burning, and pain.  There has been some studies in the literature that suggest antioxidants retard the aging process by prolonging cell life.

Although there are no studies that I am aware of, it is my considered opinion that disease is due to an altering effect on DNA and RNA by outside influence, such as virus attack, chemical toxins from air and water pollution, and energy field disruptions by radio, microwave, and other particles bombarding our bodies and changing the manner in which amino acids are sequenced within the bonds on the DNA strands.

Flawed copies of the cells result with inherent weaknesses that allow further mutations during the reproductive phase of the cell that may affect immune response and longevity of the organs and systems that are comprised of these damaged cells.  Added to this mix is the fact that our food supply has been grossly contaminated by opportunists wishing to add to their profits by adulterating plants with animal DNA in order to make them disease resistant.  I maintain that this may be the most egregious of all outside influences on our genetic matter.  In any case, antioxidants intercede on our behalf, to make our cellular environment more stable.

While TSW#1 is the first in our product line to fill this need, it will not be the last.  I recommend this product be used by from 7 years to 9 years, no matter what their health status may be.  The nutritional boost from daily antioxidant use has not been established, and these statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  This product is not intended to diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent any disease.  As with any product, if you are pregnant or nursing, please consult a physician or health care provider before using.
