Dr. Romeo Brooks Mindful Consumption
Naturopathy involves using alternative medicine that is often branded as “non-invasive” and boosts self-healing. Besides promoting organic healing, such methods birth the “abundance of energy,” and henceforth the “abundance of health,” as confidently declared by Dr. Romeo Brooks.
Studying to become a Herbalist, Iridologist, and Natural Hygienist and earning a Ph.D. in Naturopathic Medicine, Dr. Brooks' passion for wholeness, health, and holistic healing expanded his promotion of conscious eating and living.
Brooks’ business in Inglewood, California, Roots Nutrition & Fitness, currently grants access to his wellness and health-inducing consultations to potential customers, including his products that declared to "get to the root of the problem." He boldly points out, "Most people eat for flavor and taste or to feed the belly, that's just what we do. We don't eat to feed a hundred trillion cells." Considering everything, his professional guidance surrounding healthy dietary and exercise habits thinks of food beyond simple fulfillment, but as restorative fuel. In the eyes and intelligence of Dr. Brooks, food is, therefore, the medicine that can heal and mend the body.
We often limit food to its nutritional value to sustain life and growth; however, for Roots Nutrition & Fitness, it signifies much more. It's about the desire to live healthier and happier and henceforth eliminating the foods that promote inflammation, such as sugar, alcohol, highly processed foods, and foods that one is intolerant of. Regarding such shifts in lifestyles, Dr. Brooks confirms his products, such as the Power Metabolizer, Power Green, and Power Food, can ultimately remove toxins, feed your cells the vital nutrients it needs, and so on.
More specifically, he explains the benefits of the Power Cleanser and shares how the overconsumption of cooked foods can cause interferences within the body. He states, "When we eat cooked food, it can create obstructions, occlusions, blockages, adhesions, encumbrances, and [therefore] constipates the body on a cellular level. It [then] causes a problem in the body [from] high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, [to] obesity. And if you don’t move this waste, you have a problem." Regarding such health concerns, the Power Cleanser also shows to remove these obstructions as he elaborates, "It's not just what you eat, but you are what you don't eliminate, and if it's not eliminated, it's accumulated." Ultimately Brooks' products further propel conceptions of food and mindful consumption as the true power of medicine and fuel.
This said, “fuel,” involves the consumption of non-artificial goods free of chemical preservatives and additives, thus indicating the consumption of organic, "raw alkaline fruits and vegetables" to juxtapose the far greater percentages of "cooked foods" that are consumed. This then ensures that food acts as a "way to assist the body," rather than "working against it," as Dr. Brooks clarifies. By focusing on your body at the “cellular level" and "ingesting more alkaline foods," the body will [begin to] heal itself." When advising his peers and customers on health challenges from diabetes, constipation, and so forth, Brooks desires to inform his peers that "it's not just about the external, but the internal."In addition, he explores this conception of constipation, applying not only to the colon but the lungs, heart, brain, and eyes which often leads to disease and disabilities. He starts, "So what do you do,” as he asks rhetorically, yet quickly continues, “If you think about it, your health is a demonstration of the fuel that you consume and your body’s response to that fuel. So what do you consume?" Such a question merely challenges one to think deeply and intuitively about the foods consumed and the replenishment of the body. He concludes, "Your cells are you, so the real question is when will you start acting like it?”
