PERFECT FOODS, 2019 NYANP Conference Exhibitor

Perfect Foods has been growing and delivering fresh organic wheatgrass and microgreens in the New York region since 1982. Perfect Foods believes "fresh is best," and that food is medicine.Their principal products are fresh wheatgrass for juicing, frozen wheatgrass shots, Dr. Squeeze wheatgrass juicers and microgreens including broccoli, sunflower, pea, radish, cilantro, arugula and mustard.  They hope to encourage Naturopathic Physicians to recommend fresh wheatgrass juice and microgreens to their patients as a fresh alternative  to man-made processed powders, pills or pasteurized juices.

Microgreens and wheatgrass are the 2 main components of the Raw/Living Food Diet and contain amongst the highest levels of phytonutrients, chlorophyll, amino acids, vitamins and minerals available in any fresh plant food. Broccoli sprouts in particular are known to have 20-50 times the sulphurphane as adult broccoli, according to Johns Hopkins University.  Microgreens are delicious in salads, sandwiches, juices and smoothies or as a garnish in soups or on top of any entree such as fish, poultry, or pasta.   

Perfect Foods makes these superfoods as easily available as possible by delivering a weeks supply of greens straight to private customers’ homes, to practitioners and to over 450 juice bars and health food stores in the Tri- state region. For more information, testimonials and recipes see our website 800wheatgrass.com or call 1-800-WHEATGRASS. To place orders call 845-651-2012.

The 6 Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine celebrates the healing power of nature. Naturopathic medicine is dedicated to the study and celebration of nature's healing powers. It is as old as healing itself and as new as today's medical breakthroughs. It is a dynamic philosophy as well as a profession that recognizes the interconnection and the interdependence of all living things. It utilizes the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies to treat illness and to promote wellness by viewing the body as an integrated whole (AANMC).

Naturopathic medicine honors the body's innate wisdom to heal. Rather than being defined by methods or modalities, naturopathic medicine is defined by 6 principles.


Naturopathic doctors practice these six fundamental principles of naturopathic medicine:

The Healing Power of Nature

Trust in the body's inherent wisdom to heal itself.


Identify and Treat the Causes

Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.

First Do No Harm

Utilize the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.

Doctor as Teacher

Educate patients in the steps to achieving and maintaining health.


Treat the Whole Person

View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions..



Focus on overall health, wellness, and disease prevention,
