The Link Between Diet and Disease

The Link Between Diet and Disease

We all know there's a link between diet and disease, yet do we give much thought to what we eat, where the food goes when it leaves the mouth, or what it does to the body? For some, the body is merely a receptacle for anything to stop the tummy rumbling or to satisfy a need at that moment, and from where rubbish exits at the other end. 

We can identify when the foods we eat don't meet our nutritional needs, by the state of our skin, hair, nails, energy level, gut performance, and other conditions such as irritability, mood swings, lethargy, food cravings, allergies, stomach and bowel disorders. These mild issues, if left unaddressed, can lead eventually to more serious health conditions. We all know about this, because there are endless journals and books about it, and it's mentioned often in the media.

You wouldn't put dirty petrol into your car, as it would eventually break down.

Similarly, if you put bad food into your body, you can't expect it to work well

Tips for a Healthy Diet

  • Include a variety of fruits and vegetables in your daily meals.
  • Choose whole grains over refined grains.
  • Opt for lean proteins such as fish, poultry and legumes.
  • Limit processed foods, salt and sugar.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
  • Avoid excessive alcohol consumption.
  • Practise portion control by mindful eating.

These are not difficult to do. There's such a variety of healthy foods out there, beautiful colours, interesting flavours, and all containing many different essential nutrients, just waiting for you to eat them. Fruits and vegetables in season are even more nutritious, and cheaper.
