Diet & Nutrition Expert Thomas Crowhurst is Capitol Nutrition’s lead health educator and manager of our Schererville location. He’s been with Capitol Nutrition for over a decade and is considered to be the Guru of nutrition. You can check out Thomas’s talks and Videos on YouTube and download one of his many informative podcasts on our website.

Thomas’s Philosophy on Health:

The key to health, especially in our modern, technological world, is to minimize your exposure to toxic chemicals, make organic, non-GMO whole plant foods the major part of your diet and consume spring or filtered water first thing in the morning and throughout the rest of the day.

This will ensure you’re cleansing the body, balancing your hormones and nourishing each of your 34 trillion cells for radiant health.

Thomas’s Top Supplement Recommendations:

An Organic Whole Food-Based Multivitamin such as Garden of Life’s new Kind Organics Line. This will fill nutritional gaps and ensure you’re receiving all of your micronutrients for optimal health. A potent Probiotic such as Garden of Life’s Primal Defense or Raw Probiotics. This will balance your “microbial organ” improving digestion, immune health and overall feelings of wellbeing.
Omega 3 Supplement, my favorite is Flora DHA or Udo’s Oil. Give your 100 billion neurons a boost, with the essential fatty acids that keep our nervous system healthy.  Plus quench inflammation in the body, by supplementing with omega 3 fatty acids, which the body uses to make anti-inflammatory hormones.

Thomas’s favorite health quotes from pioneers in Nutrition:

“You’re not only what you eat but you absorb.”
Jordan Rubin

“What goes in doesn’t always come out.”
Dr. Bernard Jensen

“A sound mind lives in a sound body.”
Ancient Chinese Proverb

“All disease begins in the gut.”
