Below are quotes from Dr. Frank Lipman.
“Wheat is an addictive appetite stimulant and binds to the same receptors in the brain as heroin does.”
“The key to weight loss may not be calories, or fat, or even carbs, but finding out what foods you are sensitive or intolerant to.”
“Many of the foods that we think are actually healthy are not healthy for us, but are actually causing problems in our body.”
“Food is ‘data’ that the body uses to direct the complex actions that keep us vibrantly alive, so loading up on junk food is like taking the fast lane to a giant system failure.”
“My philosophy is simple, bring the body back to rhythm. We are rhythmic beings, but our modern lives have thrown these rhythms off. We have outpaced our biology.”
“When our rhythms are in sync, life flows easily, we have more energy and everyday tasks are easier to perform. Athletes call this ‘being in the zone’ or ‘having their game on’. Finding your ‘groove’ is not just psychological, it is physiological too.”
“I see myself as a partner in my patient´s health journey.
A large part of what I do is teach patients how to get well and stay healthy. But the first step in any program is for you, the patient, to take responsibility for your own health.”
“I practice what I simply call good medicine, combining the best of modern contemporary medicine with the best of alternative and complementary medicines. It blends the knowledge we´ve gained from science with wisdom from ancient healing traditions.”
“Most diseases do not have a single cause, multiple factors are usually involved. They are a result of multiple, complex, interacting factors which are not addressed when we look for a single cause and a magic bullet treatment.”
“What I try to do is restore function or improve function.
I try to restore the ability of the body to adapt to the stresses of life or support the tissues that have failed to adapt adequately.”
“Most patients I see in my practice are what I call the “walking wounded”, not sick enough to be in hospital, but in enough discomfort that they know something is wrong.”
“As we all look different on the outside, we are also biochemically unique on the inside. There is no such thing as one right diet for everyone or for that matter the right supplements or exercise routine. We are all as unique as our fingerprints.”
