Whole foods

With the exception of certain foods which are contraindicated, patients on the Marshall ProtocolA curative medical treatment for chronic inflammatory disease. Based on the Marshall Pathogenesis. (MP) are advised to consume whole foods. Whole foods consist of foods that are unprocessed and unrefined or processed and refined as little as possible before being consumed. Vegetables, fruits, and meats are all examples of whole foods.

There is scant evidence to conclude that humans need to eat supplement-type foods or nutraceuticals either for reasons of dietary deficiency or to protect against chronic disease. Recent published research has shown that the practice of consuming nutrients like vitamins in excess of limits set by the FDA can sometimes even contribute to chronic disease. This includes vitamin A, C, D, E, and all the varieties of vitamin B, including folic acid.

All the same, the U.S. market for supplement-type foods and nutraceuticals now exceeds $30 billion due in large part to heavy marketing and credulous consumers.

Patients on the MP are advised that chronic disease is seldom caused by or exacerbated by “nutrient deficiency.” Although occasional exceptions are warranted, MP patients should be wary of supplements, which may also include vitamin D even if it is not necessarily listed on the label.

There is no evidence that juicing is in some way effective.
