Healing yourself with food
“The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison!” – Ann Wigmore
The above quote couldn’t be more true! Something humans today don’t realize is that we have the power of healing and living at our optimum health right at our very own fingertips. Every food that we put into our mouth alters our minds and bodies in either a positive or negative way. Certain foods can do damage, while others have the ability to support our bodies in a natural healing process.
Notice how you feel after eating specific foods. For example, I have experimented, and learnt that after I eat or drink to much dairy, my stomach goes into horrible cramps. Some symptoms may be obvious, whilst others not. Listen to your body and what it is trying to tell you. Your body is the most powerful tool when it comes to healing yourself through the things you put inside of it.
Making changes in your daily diet isn’t always that easy, but it is very important to add in the nutrient filled foods that your body needs in order to thrive and function at is maximum. These foods include fruit, vegetable, water, healthy fats.etc. Try your best to remove the foods that cause inflammation and imbalance in your body such as sugar, dairy, gluten.
Not one single human out there is the same as another, so what might work for you, won’t work for somebody else. You need to listen your very own body and how it feels after every meal! If a certain food makes you feel tired, for example, then you need to remove it from your daily diet.
Whether you are fighting fatigue, searching for ways to boost your immune system, or recovering from an illness, theres no better way to over come these issues than by making healthy lifestyle changes. Prevention and management of symptoms can significantly be helped through the foods you eat.
Below are a list of foods and their healing properties:
Ginger is great when used as a cooking spice and is helpful when it comes to reducing nausea. It is also known for aiding digestion, calming an upset stomach and treating arthritis.
Mushrooms are known as a power food. Studies continue to examine how shiitake mushrooms may fight cancer by boosting the immune system through the compound lentinan, believed to slow tumor growth.
– Healthy Fats
Healthy fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated) may reduce your risk of heart disease. Healthy sources include fatty fish, avocado, olive oil, and certain nuts, such as walnuts, almonds, and pecans.
Beets are a natural energy supply packed with carbs, calcium, iron, and vitamins A and C. Studies also reveal that they may help fight cancer and protect against heart disease.
Probiotics are live microorganisms, “friendly bacteria”, that your body needs to protect against disease. They can be found in foods like yogurt, kefir, and soy beverages. Probiotics can also be obtained in supplement form. Ongoing studies continue to explore the potential of probiotics to treat diseases including irritable bowel syndrome, skin infections, and certain cancers.
– Swiss Chard
This nutrition-packed vegetable supports bone health, fights stress-related disease, and holds anti-inflammatory properties. Sautee it, toss it in a salad, or replace it for spinach in any dish.
Learn to heal yourself from the inside out!
“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.”
