YES! – We are what we eat
AND, what we digest and assimilate
There are so many “diets” available. Vegan, vegetarian, Paleo, Low Carb, Low Fat, High Protein, Mediterranean, Re-set your hormones…..
The list goes on. But what suits you best?
Do you have food allergies or food intolerances? This is one of the most asked questions I get as a Naturopath and it is the biggest mine-field for people to sort out.
After 24 years of helping people work out what foods suit (or not) their body, I can help you too. If you have symptoms to suggest that you may have food intolerances or sensitivities, I can check for these on my ASYRA Bio-resonance screening. This helps take the “guess work” and the “trial and error”.
Not only “we are what we eat” – we are also what we digest and assimilate. You could have the best diet in the world but if your digestive system is not breaking down your foods properly you won’t be getting the benefits from your foods. So you could be feeling tired, or experiencing digestive symptoms such as bloating, gas, burping, indigestion, abdominal cramping, constipation or diarrhoea.
Eating the wrong foods for you could also be contributing to weight gain, inflammatory conditions such as rashes, sore joints and muscle aches or acne. If you keep eating the wrong foods (for you) long term – start thinking diabetes, cardiovascular risk, arthritis, insomnia, IBS, hormonal imbalances, skin conditions plus many more conditions.
We really are what we eat. Eat the foods that suit your body and that work for you and you can reduce your symptoms drastically and over time be clear of them. Food is our primary source of the essential nutrients for our health.
#1 Health Tip for the day: Stop or at least start reducing the amount of sugar you’re eating Most people think if they are not having sugar in their tea or coffee or on their cereal they are not having much sugar. There is sugar in your cereal and almost everything that is packaged eg biscuits, cakes, bakery items, sauces, soft drinks, energy drinks, lollies, cordial, pre-packaged meals, take-away foods, canned foods. Become an avid “label reader” – you will be amazed at how there is sugar in just about everything in your supermarket shopping trolley. Start preparing your own foods from scratch – at least that way you know what you are eating. You will be equally amazed at how much better you feel once you reduce/cut out sugar from your diet.
