Nutrition plays a major role in the body's wellness and is propelled by the saying by Hippocrates the Father of Medicine (the originator of the Hippocratic oath that all newly qualified Doctors take).
The title of this maiden Blog alludes to the kind of wellness that is based on what we at BACK2NEW WELLNESS terms 'effective nutrition'.
WHAT IS EFFECTIVE NUTRITION?
Effective nutrition is targeted nutrition, which goes beyond food, and is an educated, research-based preventive strategy that starts with a focus on the bio-individuality of the Client. Effective nutrition tries to address individual needs for a short, medium, or long-term need for cures or preventive modalities.
'Bio-individuality' is a concept that rests on the uniqueness of each individual. When you apply the principles of Bio-individuality, you will start a cascade of information about yourself. You will get to know more about the benefits of particular foods as it applies to you and maybe no one else. You will personalize your eating regimen to your benefit. You will not only eat to satisfy hunger but eat because you want to target disease prevention, healthy aging, and recovery from sickness. Everyone needs a particular "Dose" of effective nutrition to counter disease, weakness, and pain.
MEDICATIONS vs MEDICINAL FOODS
No medication can equate to the benefits of medicinal foods. These medicinal foods have the added benefit of no side effects and testing over centuries. Medicinal foods are nice mostly tasting and lend themselves to a high degree of compliance. And one very important thing to note: A regimen of medicinal foods needs consistency, commitment, and knowledgeable application.
THE STOMACH IS AT THE CENTER OF OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
In fact, about 70 percent of the immune system is housed in the gut, so making our digestive system, so a wellness strategy driven by effective nutrition is really down to two primary best practices.
Digestive habits and consistent nurturing of healthful eating practices
A practical knowledge base of well-researched bio-individual food information.
While on the subject of the 'Stomach', it is important to emphasize the importance of GUT BACTERIA. In an article reporting on research at Johns Hopkins, Helen Fields (November 2015) 'The Gut: Where Bacteria and the immune system meet'. Research Scientists are very interested in the role of foods and their beneficial effects on stomach bacteria, the immune system, and disease prevention.
HEAD TO TOE WELLNESS
Our goal at BACK2NEW WELLNESS is for individuals to avail themselves of opportunities to tap into current research and adopt life-saving and preventive health practices. We provide practical and easy-to-adopt strategies on an individual basis.
