You are what you eat. It’s that simple. What you eat has the potential to affect your health almost more than anything else. Choose wisely and the food you eat becomes the fuel for keeping you healthy and vital. Choose poorly and you’ll miss the opportunity to provide your cells with the nutrients they need to fight off infection, inflammation and more.
What you absorb through proper digestion also has the potential to impact your health. Unhealthy digestion = unhealthy body. More than 2,000 years ago, Hippocrates stated, “All disease begins in the gut.” Your gut health can impact your immune system, inflammation, your brain function among many other bodily systems. You also can support balancing your hormones, including sex hormones, thyroid and adrenal, through diet and nutrition.
There’s no one-size-fits-all dietary plan. You may have tried a variety of diets, supplements and potentially even cleanses. And the many diets today can be confusing – gluten-free, Paleo, AIP, Atkins, Vegetarian, South Beach, Raw Food, Mediterranean, and so on. The reality is any of these diets can be hard to maintain. And they may not even work with your individual biochemistry/genetic make-up. In fact, over time our bodies change and thus our diet needs to change too. For example, some diets may not be the best if you have histamine issues, while other diets that incorporate lots of coconut products may cause reactionary issues. Our goal is to help you foster a positive view of and relationship with food.
