THE ELEMENTS OF LIVING A HEALTHY LIFE
Eating for Health and Vitality
You are what you eat. Your body needs a wide spectrum of nutrients to function at its best to give you health, energy and immunity throughout your life. You don't find nutrients from fast and processed food but from fresh, whole food, organic if possible. But with all the so called 'healthy' diets out there, it can be confusing to know what to eat. In fact, I don't like word 'diet' at all. You just need to understand what to eat for health and vitality.
Why You Should Have the Guts to Heal Your Guts!
We are only now discovering just how important gut health is, not only for digestion and elimination but for our immune system, hormones, sleep regulation and even mood. Did you realise that the gut is responsible for 80% of our immune system? And that it can play a significant role in mental health?
Healing the Gut & Gut Related Issues
IBS, IBD, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns Disease and other gut issues. You can heal/greatly improve your gut health which will improve digestion, bloating, gut discomfort/pain resulting in the ability to eat a broader, better diet, absorb more nutrients and hence improve your health and vitality.
Where Have All The Minerals Gone?
In the year 2000, the Soil Association in UK quoted figures from the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs that trace minerals in the UK fruit and vegetables had fallen by 76%. Apparently, depletion of minerals is a global problem and this has serious implications for human, animal and plant health.
Antiobiotic Resistance, A Global Threat
Currently, at least 700,000 people die each year due to drug resistant diseases. In 2019, the UN, international agencies and experts released a ground breaking-report warning that drug-resistant diseases could cause 10 million deaths eachy year by 2050.
Food As Medicine
Can be food be used as medicine? I have cleared my eczema and reduced my eye pressures(I have glaucoma) through diet, so I firmly believe that it can.
