Yes, food is our problem and our solution! What we eat and where it comes from are the cause of virtually all of the major diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression and cancer. The simple explanation is that we are simply not feeding our bodies good food – the types of food we need to fight disease and have strong immune systems. The good news is that since food is often the problem, it is also often the solution! Simply learn how to determine good food from bad and your body will do the rest.
So what are the foods that help your body heal?
The best foods are minimally processed and as close to their original state as possible. These foods are often referred to as whole foods. These foods would include fresh vegetables, fruits and various kinds of meat, poultry and fish. For fruits and vegetables, fresh and local are best. The progression of the next best options would be organic, conventional then frozen. For meats grass-fed or free range is best.
In addition to eating whole foods, it is extremely important to supplement key minerals and omega fatty acids. Minerals are simply depleted from the soils and most people aren’t getting enough of the essential minerals the body needs. Iron, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, manganese, chromium and boron are the most important minerals to supplement. Fatty acids are also often missing from your diet and are so essential to the immune system and cardiovascular health, everyone should be supplementing omega 3 and 6. It’s important to note, seeds oils are a far better source of omega 3 and 6 than fish oil. Seeds oils are more complete and are more pure than fish oil.
By eating quality food and supplementing minerals and omegas, your body will be getting the nutrition it needs and will be able to build an immune system that is capable of healing and preventing disease. You will be amazed at how good you feel and how you can overcome any health issues you may be dealing with. You will notice less sickness and more energy!
