Dietary & Lifestyle Advice
It may be a cliché, but the saying, “you are what you eat”, rings with truth and good nutrition leads to a healthy body and a sound mind. The foods that we consume everyday play an important role in maintaining our overall health.
Nutrition is the science that establishes the relationship between a person’s diet and their level of health. The body requires six main foods in order to function correctly: carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water. These all need to be consumed on a daily basis and also need to be balanced. If one of these becomes low or deficient, a negative impact occurs on the body and illness or a general feeling of being unwell may result. Ideally we should get all our nutrition from our food. However, in today’s society, with modern farming techniques, added chemicals and food processing, the food that reaches our tables is usually lacking in essential vitamins and nutrients, making it difficult for our bodies to adapt. Therefore, it is often necessary to use supplements to balance our diets.
To prevent diseases from forming, our diet plays an important role in our lifestyle. With regular exercise, good sleeping patterns, social activities, relaxation and work balance, this will lead to a healthier mind and body.
