“Our Food Should be Our Medicine. Our Medicine Should
be Our Food.” – Hippocrates, ‘The World’s
Diet and nutrition choices
can be difficult to navigate in today's world of processed "franken-foods". A licensed
primary care medical professional, Christopher Jackson, Ph.D., D.O.M., A.P. (FL), prescribes customized diet and nutrition programs to address specific health problems, and to optimize health and wellness. Dr. Jackson helps his patients navigate the choices and avoid the substances in foods that
can contribute to health problems. He also may prescribe treatments that may include specific exercises, western and
eastern herbal medicine, orthomolecular medicine, homeopathy, and mind-body techniques.
Derived from foods, herbal medicine and nutraceuticals support the body's healing functions
and structural integrity. A natural approach to healing actually benefits the body, unlike many artificial
or synthetic food additives and drugs.
sure what we mean by "franken-foods"? Here are some of the culprits. Many mass-produced fast foods include
neurotoxins monosodium glutamate (MSG) and synthetic sweeteners such as aspartame (Nutrasweet or Equal), which is also a neurotoxin, sucralose (Splenda), and saccharine (Sweet
n' Low). In addition to neurotoxins and synthetic sweeteners, more additives include various artificial colors such as red 40, blue 1, and yellow 5, and preservatives such as sodium benzoate, BHT, and many more. Of course, there are many preferable natural plant-derived flavors, sweeteners, and
colors available, so why pollute our food? Although, one so-called "natural" FDA-approved red color,
a known allergen, is extracted by crushing red insects (Dactylopius coccus) and labeled as Cochineal Extract or
Carmine. Carmine is present in many foods, including many yogurts and bottled drinks, even some labeled 100 % juice!
Sure, if you include beetle juice!
Genetic modification of food and irradiation practices are highly suspect, and chemical additives like MSG and artificial colors may be linked to childhood hyperactivity. Pesticides used on our food supplies have hormonally disrupting, developmentally toxic, carcinogenic, and
neurotoxic effects and are especially toxic when combined, so going organic is better. We also need water in a pure form, yet municipal water often contains toxins like chlorine and fluoride,
and warm plastic bottles often leach chemical estrogens. Food is often subjected to chemical preservation and
heated above 115 degrees F, losing its enzymes and nutritional value and creating health issues.

Dr. Christopher Jackson, Ph.D., D.O.M., A.P. (FL), is team doctor on an exciting new 30 day health-improving pizza diet with Matt
McClellan, owner of "Tour de Pizza", illustrating that pizza is a more natural choice than fast food, with
fresher ingredients than the highly processed fast foods. Segments have appeared on Channel 13 FOX News, the Channel 10 News and the Morning Show. The accomplishments of the 30 day pizza diet were
praised by Jared of Subway diet fame on Channel 13 Good Day Tampa Bay. A VIDEO slide show was created by St. Petersburg Times staff, based on work by reporter Dalia
Colón and photographer Luis Santana, who also documented Matt's progress in the initial article and follow-up article in the St. Petersburg Times, and in the Tampa Bay Times newspaper. The implication is not that
everyone should be on a pizza diet, but the 30 day pizza diet results showed that it is a better choice overall than many
fast foods. Unlike many fast foods, fresh pizza usually does not have the additives that are used by the food
industry to enhance flavor and food appearance, and to extend shelf life. Every day of the 30 day pizza diet is
packed with fresh enzyme-packed nutrition. MSG hyperactivity pesticides counseling acupuncture
