” When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need. “
This phrase is no stranger to most. Whether you have heard of this or not, I believe the effect stretches a long way. However, there is one thing that is common amongst us all – we all eat food. Food give us a dopamine boost and it supplies us with the ‘fuel’ to carry out our daily activities. But most importantly, it provides us with the nutrients needed to survive.
These nutrients can come in the form of macronutrients – protein, carbohydrates and fats – that offer caloric values as well as specific roles in maintaining your well-being. They could also come in the form of micronutrients – vitamins and minerals – that do not have caloric values but they play a critical role when it comes to diseases & illnesses prevention and filling of nutritional gaps. They have also been associated with a number of health benefits and may aid in promoting eye health, memory & concentration and even cancer prevention.
But did you know that we are what we eat ? The food that we put into our bodies translate into “information” and materials that our bodies need. If we don’t get the right “information”, our metabolic processes slow down and our health declines. Constant input of wrong “information” to our bodies only bring harm to our bodies, resulting in the development of diseases and conditions such as heart diseases and arthritis.
In short, what we eat is central to our health. That’s why i strongly believe that food is medicine – to maintain, prevent and treat diseases. Follow me on this journey as I uncover the benefits and science that whole food bring to the table. Do stay tuned for the weekly updates from this website about health and nutrition.
