Can an apple a day keep the doctor away? Good nutrition and what you put into your body is the foundation for good health.

Almost 2500 years ago, Hippocrates said -“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”. Considered as one of the most influential figures in the history of medicine and healing,  he advised people to prevent and treat diseases first and foremost by eating a nutrient-dense diet.

Food gives our bodies the “information” and materials needed to function properly. When our bodies don’t get the right information, our metabolic processes suffer, and our overall health declines.

As a Mind-Body Wellness practitioner, I encourage healthy food choices to emphasize how food can be our medicine. We need to “fuel well, to feel well”. Dysfunctional eating patterns & patterns can trigger thoughts of “food as the enemy.” At Nourishment Vitality, our view of nutrition goes way beyond calories or grams, good foods, or bad foods.  We teach the importance of focusing on foods we should include rather than foods we should exclude, and to look at food as a way to create health, well-being, and emotional balance.

Nourishment Vitality also offers holistic weight management online courses to elevate your mood, become more productive, & live a healthier lifestyle.

So many people that come to us are completely unaware of how closely related food and mood are. Our emotions are triggered or balanced by our food choices. Instead of being on an emotional rollercoaster all the time, learn to master how you feel about your food choices.

Nutritional deficiencies and toxicity from a poor diet may be directly linked to many modern health conditions. Eating too much of the wrong foods is unhealthy. Eating too little or over-eating can result in us becoming undernourished, overweight, and at risk of developing diseases and conditions. These conditions may include arthritis, depression, diabetes, and heart disease. It is important to internalize that illnesses may be  highly influenced by diet.  

It was through my own health challenges that I found certain foods to have specific healing and medicinal properties.

There are many foods that act as natural protectors against disease and help decrease inflammation, balance hormones, stabilize blood sugar levels, alkalize the body, and eliminate toxins from our systems. With information readily available online, and in the palm of your hand, it’s the best time to learn more about nutrition and which superfoods are nature’s antidepressants.

Every meal that you eat influences the way that you feel.

I always tell our clients that by thinking about what is at the end of your fork, eating for health, and letting go of the dieting mentality you can live a life filled with vitality, health, and joy.
