“All disease begins in the gut” Hippocrates an ancient Greek physician quoted 2500 years ago. Diet induced chronic inflammation leads to chronic metabolic diseases. Change your diet change your health.
The Standard American Diet “SAD” has large nutritional gaps because of the abundance of poor nutritional quality of our food. As a result chronic diseases are rampant. To reverse many of these diseases we need healthy whole foods. Eating high quality foods can have a positive influence on your body and may even help to reverse disease.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates.
Food affects the health and survival of the human body. Human beings require food to grow, reproduce, and maintain good health. Without food, our bodies could not stay warm, build or repair tissue, or maintain a heartbeat. Eating the right foods can help us avoid certain diseases or recover faster when illness occurs. These and other important functions are fueled by chemical substances in our food called nutrients. Nutrients are classified as carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, enzymes and water.
