Terry’s mission is to introduce revolutionary natural products that will improve the health of America.
I have been in the health food and nutrition industry over 40 years. I have tried to retire several times but something continues to draw me back to the industry. That something is…You!
I am convinced that supplementing your diet with vitamins, minerals, nutritional factors and herbal extracts can make a huge difference in your health and the health of your family. I have seen the effects in myself personally; my family and the thousands of people that I have met being in the retail business and while conducting seminars and lectures throughout America.
Supplementing your diet isn’t a magic bullet. There are no miracles but I believe if you diligently follow a healthy nutrition plan, include moderate exercise and supplement the diet when appropriate, you will see huge changes in how you feel, think and perform. There are nutritional supplements and botanical extracts sold in health food stores everywhere that are equally effective as drugs for a specific indication.
You may see or hear about a clinical study on a natural substance or herb that scientists declared is no better than a placebo. This recently happened regarding St. John’s Wort and Echinacea. Both of these herbs have been clinically studied on 20 different occasions in a significant manner in Europe. They are widely prescribed by physicians in Europe. We now have 20 positive studies on each of these herbs and one negative study. The one negative study always seems to make the front pages and in many cases this causes the consumer to regard these herbs as useless as well as the health food industry in general. This is really an unfair assessment of these herbs or what the health food industry has to offer. If 20 of your friends were following a diet to lose weight and all were successful but you met a friend who did not respond to the diet, would you decide not to choose the diet based on the one friend or the 20 friends who were successful? I think you get my point.
My goal on this website is to share with you the “best of the best” in scientific research, quality nutritional supplements and botanical extracts, and act as a lifestyle coach to help you achieve a quality of life that is not experienced by most people. The major factor which will convince you that you can feel a difference is the quality of the products you select. Also, keep in mind that not all natural products are safe and in some cases can be harmful. Find a quality health food store with a knowledgeable staff, select quality products and give the changes you adopt a fair trial, 6 months to a year in some cases, but of course you will see changes ongoing. Remember, your problem did not occur overnight. The foundation of that problem was laid down over many years. You will learn that you can avoid drugs or lower the dosages of the drugs you’re taking and replace them with natural products. In any industry you will find manufacturers who are only trying to make a quick dollar so their products are inferior and will not provide you with the benefits you desire.
Every week I will continue to bring you more news you can use to improve your health and reduce the drugs you are taking. For example, I don’t believe anyone should ever take a statin drug. There is absolutely no scientific documentation that proves they are effective and provide more benefits than the negative side effects. In fact, 63% of the people who die from heart disease have so-called “normal cholesterol”. These are the types of discussions and information you will find at Terry Talks Nutrition. I hope I find you here each and every week. Together we can change the health of America.
