Using Nutrition to Prevent Or Eliminate Illness

Most everyone knows that before drugs existed, most healings was done with herbs and misguided medical theories. Herbs and food were the medicine of past times. In a natural nutrition book, I recently read this quote, “If doctors don’t learn nutrition, nutritionists will become doctors.” This quote shows the importance of nutrition and the power it has to prevent or eliminate illness.

If you are sick or have certain body conditions that are creating pain, then you need to consider learning enough nutrition to help yourself eliminate that sickness or pain. Learning some of the basic principles of nutrition is not hard. It just takes a little effort in finding the right nutritional course that teaches practical ways of applying nutrition.

Most illnesses and resulting deaths occur because of inflammation. Inflammation occurs at the beginning of a disease and it is just a slight irritation that you might feel. Many times you just ignore this irritation, which then turns into a slight inflammation. As the inflammation feeds on itself it gets bigger and bigger eventually causing a disease that a doctor can detect. Once a doctor can detect disease, it is well established in your body.

Applying practical nutrition stops the beginning of inflammation. This prevents the formation of disease. If the disease is developing or well established, nutrition can reverse these conditions. One area that nutrition can not heal or cure is when inflammation has caused a disease that has permanently destroyed cells and tissue. But the body has amazing recovering abilities so one cannot always say “the body can not recover.”

Inflammation comes from excess acid in the body. This acid is created from the foods you eat. Eating certain foods leave an acid residue in your cells that then travel into the liquid surrounding your cells – lymph liquid. In the lymph liquid, this acid can damage cells and tissue and in doing so starts the inflammation process.

A good natural anti-inflammatory to use daily is MSM. MSM travels throughout your body reducing inflammation and stopping the beginnings of disease. Using 2000 – 4000 mg of MSM is not uncommon.

The acid in the body is neutralized by minerals. The actual way minerals are created by food and used in your body to stop the destructive effects of acids is taught in nutrition. There are 5 major key minerals that you must concentrate on when you consider what foods to eat. These minerals are responsible for the majority of chemical reactions that occur in your body, which provide you with natural health.

Learning natural nutrition is now possible online. In the past, it was difficult to learn nutrition without going to school. Finding courses in practical nutrition can be difficult but what you and most people need is to learn is nutrition that you can put into practice. Understanding nutrition can give you the natural methods that you need to deal with anybody discomfort or disease. It gives you the tools and techniques that you need to apply to keep you healthy for a long time. Find the time, find the course, find the health that you need.

Nutrition: The Cause Of The Office Workers Demise

Whether you’re an entrepreneur, business professional, writer, or technology mogul, chances are you spend a lot of time in an office.At home, at work, it makes no difference.I can remember back to my college years when I was working out twice a day and at my peak in athletic performance. I was energetic, in amazing shape and ruthless in the kitchen.Then once life hit me and I started working more, my body changed. Or should I call it morphed into something different.My eating habits got worse, my workout habits took a plunge and the spare tire around my waist began to inflate.Not only was I getting fatter, my energy level stunk, my neck was always sore and I was damn near exhausted all day long.I could feel that having low energy at work was sucking my creative juices.Does this sound familiar?Well, it shouldn’t be this way. Let’s first take a look at the biggest contributing factors.And To Think It Couldn’t Get Any WorseLets face it.Your nutrition habits stink. I can almost bet that the most damage happens later in the day as stress builds.The cold hard truth is what you put in your mouth from when you wake up to when you go to bed affects you.The most obvious outcome is how your nutrition habits effect you physically. Your posture begins to get sloppy, you get chubby in odd places and your mobility declines. Can you touch your toes while standing? On one leg can you bring your other knee to a 45 degree angle past your hip? Or can you get in a full squat with heels on the ground?Nutrition affects your body composition, energy and your ability to live actively. It effects you physically in so many ways.Your nutrition habits also effect your mental capacity. Maybe you’ve become very forgetful or you have a sense of blurry thoughts, which is better known as brain fog. Or worst of all your creative thought is no longer available for your use. Your mental capacity has tanked and your brain feels like mush. All caused from your poor diet.According to a recent study, school aged children (6-12 years of age) were given a micronutrient drink mix, 396 children in Australia and 394 children in Indonesia. The results showed higher scores on tests that measured verbal intelligence and learning and memory after 6 and 12 months in both boys and girls in Australia, but in only girls in Indonesia.And if finding out that you’re losing your mental capacity wasn’t enough, nutrition effects you emotionally. Have you ever been so hungry you wanted to run through a wall? Or maybe you were so hungry that you snapped at a colleague, employee or spouse. Poor nutrition is an emotional killer. According to a study in the Indian Journal of Psychiatry,”… the dietary intake pattern of the general population in many Asian and American countries reflects that they are often deficient in many nutrients, especially essential vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. A notable feature of the diets of patients suffering from mental disorders is the severity of deficiency in these nutrients.”Poor nutrition is also a productivity killer. It’s estimated the productivity loss cost employers two to three times the annual healthcare expenses. Plain and simple, if you have low energy at work your productivity will suffer.But you’re not doomed forever…The good news is that all the underlying issues from your poor nutrition happens are reversible by correcting these bad habits.
