We are saddened about Dr. Bruce West’s passing. He will be missed, but never forgotten.
Dr. West was a Chiropractor and Nutritionist who has helped thousands of people overcome so much with nutrients instead of drugs and medications. He was one of our mentors and we will carry the torch to continue helping others who are looking for natural solutions to address the root causes to many health problems.
Our clinicians have been invited to the Standard Process farm multiple times. We love the Standard Process formulas that Dr. Bruce West educated thousands of people on and truly have been fortunate to see the amazing health benefits of what nutrient dense foods and food formulas can do to support the healing body.
The Health Alert publication by Dr. Bruce West each month was an amazing reference book for many. The official title is Health Alert: When All Other Treatments Fail.
I loved how he shared the truth in his writings. In one newsletter, he shared information how artificial sweeteners cause blood sugar imbalances in a different way. Dr. West brought to light of a study with mice showed that consuming artificial sweeteners such as saccharin, sucralose (Splenda), and aspartame (Equal, Sweet n low) cause glucose intolerance or type 2 diabetes. In the study one group of mice was fed the artificial sweeteners and another group fed sugar (1). The ones fed sugar did not develop diabetes, just the artificial sweetener group. This was replicated in a small group of healthy human subjects who were placed on a diet containing artificial sweeteners. Within just one week over 50% of the humans developed glucose intolerance.
