“Let food be thy medicine” – Hippocrates
Correct nutrition has the amazing ability to not only increase energy and maintain health but also to prevent disease. We are living in the 21st century where there is no time to prepare food; it must be fast, pre-prepared and contain as few calories as the packaging it comes in.
There is a growing awareness toward prevention being better medicine than cure. You can take your health into your own hands by choosing a natural whole food based diet that supports your bodily processes rather than hindering them.
There is plenty of evidence to suggest that refined foods (such as white bread, cakes and sugar) and bad fats (such as hydrogenated oils e.g. margarine) contribute to many of the health conditions that are on the rise today; obesity, constipation, type II diabetes (NIDDM), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), atherosclerosis, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to name a few.
Our nutrient status is further reduced by overfarming land and depleted nutrients in the soil, poor water quality, polluted environments, the use of pesticides and chemical food additives, microwave ovens and poor cooking methods, food storage and genetic modification of food.
Choose to be healthy naturally.
