Oliver Weston Products Now Available!
In giving the joy of health back to so many people throughout the years I have learned to help my patients as much as possible with the lifestyle changes that we recommend at Healing Arts. Knowledge is power and so I truly believe patient education is key in helping people take back their own health. That is why we have so many handouts on various health topics for patients to read and we do a variety of free workshops too. We are also aware that the lifestyle changes can be overwhelming and we do our best to help you through them.
It can be especially difficult for families who have one child that can eat wheat but another child that can’t eat it. How do you tell a 5 year old they can’t have their favorite chocolate cupcake for right now? It is not easy. I know from my first hand experience with raising my 8 year old. To make the healthier lifestyle changes we ask of you or your child we know it’s a constant commitment to tell yourself or your child ‘no’ to certain foods until they stop asking for it. That is why we built the website familynutritionnyc.com, to help families with certain tools and tips to make it an easier transition. The goal is to have substitutes around so the children don’t feel so deprived.
Let’s pretend your 5 year old can’t have wheat or sugar for 2 months and so his favorite desserts are gone but you can make him a paleo brownie using almond flour and maple syrup. It’s those types of ideas that are on the website. Did you know we can test babies? There is a video that explains how we do that!
To help all our patients we have also collaborated with a farm in upstate NY in the Hudson Valley called Oliver Weston that will deliver food to our office. I truly believe in eating local and what better way than straight from the farm to your table!
We now have a freezer full of Oliver Weston products that we sell with no profit that includes:
Chicken and Beef Broth (soy-free, pasture raised)
Plantain Sandwich Bread
Millet Flax Sourdough Bread
Buckwheat Hemp Sourdough Bread
Coconut sugar chocolates
Bacon (nitrate free, sugar free)
So next time you are in the office take the time to check out our freezer!
