In over twenty years in practice, I’ve seen a lot of diet trends come and go — Atkins, South Beach, Paleo, high-carb, low-carb. Some of them have been really solid and based on how the human body naturally processes food.
At Fundamental Health Solutions, our vision for a healthier community begins with patient education. Since 1997, our mission has been to improve the health of our Naples community – one family, one patient and one day at a time.
Our holistic health practitioners are experts in their fields. Our recognized Naples chiropractor and his team members are dedicated to helping patients achieve optimal health. We are able to employ only natural techniques and avoid medications and surgery by evaluating functional disturbance, screening functional movements, examining nutrition and utilizing applied kinesiology. Using this comprehensive approach, our chiropractor can determine root causes by examining patients’symptoms, as well as their lifestyle habits.
By drawing upon the best of conventional and alternative practices, we are able to offer our clients unique solutions that are customized for their specific health care needs and goals. Our Naples chiropractor practice is the proud recipient of the “TLC Center of Excellence,”designation by the Metagenics Corporation, a global life sciences company focused on reversing chronic illness and improving health.

February = Fermentation
We welcome back one of our favorite Valentine's: Denise Petersen, our Kombucha Guru as she brings her delicious Kimchi into our February spotlight.
What is Kimchi?
Kimchi is raw vegetables that become naturally fermented in puree of fruits, garlic, ginger and Korean spices. Kimchi is a living food like wine and cheese; the older it gets, the deeper its taste develops. Kimchi preserves nutrients prebiotics that are already in fresh vegetables while self-generating probiotics. After a day or two in room temperature, you need to keep it cold for that perfect tangy soda taste. All of the elements in Kimchi are beneficial for our body, especially our intestines that feed our digestive tract, blood stream and brains. Kimchi adds flavors to any type of food; meat, potatoes, noodles, rice, bread, tortillas...anything your heart desires! Kimchi is a zero waste and sustainable supplement to our daily diet.
Abstract in the Journal of Medicinal Food: Health functionality of Kimchi includes anticancer, anti-obesity, anti-constipation, colorectal health promotion, probiotic properties, cholesterol reduction, fibrolytic effect, antioxidant and anti-aging properties, brain health promotion, immune promotion, and skin health promotion.

When it comes to vinegar, you either love it or hate it and there's no question how we feel about the addictive, sweet-tart stuff that flavors everything from pickles and salad dressings to cocktails and desserts.
Vinegar — the word comes from the French vin aigre, meaning sour wine — tantalizes us with its vigorous pungency, a reminder of its prime importance as a food preservative since the dawn of human history.
We've known vinegar as long as we've known wine, using it as a food, flavoring and even folk medicine. It's made from the fermented juices of virtually any plant material, including rice, grain and fruit, and enjoys a distinguished place in the ongoing, ever-changing story of food. We think it deserves every minute in the spotlight.

Maybe it’s because I celebrated another birthday, or because I’m enjoying a life-long goal of traveling through Europe. Or maybe it’s because, in the midst of all the epic castles and regal mountain beauty, I
