Nutritionism: The Nutritional Priesthood and The Chiropractic Approach

I am going to connect the dots between the problems of health and the American diet, which is a catastrophe at the moment, the problem with health, and the whole food system. I’m going to explain how we created a Nutritional Priesthood to scientifically explain food, even though no other species on our planet needs such a decree. Even indigenous people who can’t read and write are healthier than us because they eat real whole wild food. In this video, I’m going to explore how we got here. How we got to this deep confusion about food, because I think it has implications for our health and our agriculture.



The concept of “Nutritionism” emerged in the 20th century with the rise of processed foods, and the idea that nutrients, rather than whole foods, are the key to good health. This approach to nutrition has been heavily influenced by the food industry, which has promoted processed foods that are high in sugar, salt, and fat while lacking in essential nutrients.

The Nutritional Priesthood, as Pollan calls it, are the experts who have taken on the role of interpreting the science of nutrition for the general public. However, Pollan argues that over-reliance on the scientific community has led to a distorted understanding of what constitutes a healthy diet.

The Chiropractic Approach

In contrast, the chiropractic approach focuses on the whole person, including diet, exercise, and lifestyle, rather than just treating symptoms. This approach recognizes that nutrition plays an important role in health and wellness, but emphasizes the need for a balanced diet that includes a variety of whole foods.

Ultimately, the key to good health is to eat a diet that is rich in whole foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, and to avoid processed foods that are high in sugar, salt, and fat. By taking a more holistic approach to nutrition, we can improve our health and wellbeing, and create a more sustainable food system.
