Hi Hi…!! I want to start this blog with a phrase from Hippocrates. “If someone wants good health, they must first ask themselves if they are ready to eliminate the reasons for their illness. Only then is it possible to help him ”.
We are responsible for everything that happens to us in our lives, that's why I write a lot to raise awareness to have a healthy lifestyle. If we suffer from high cholesterol, overweight, obesity, diabetes, kidney failure, arthritis, etc. It is our responsibility and although many of these conditions may be genetic, it is true that we can help genetics not to develop these conditions at chronic levels. Therefore some phrase of Hippocrates that must be the north to have the health we want: - "Let your food be your food and your food be your medicine." - "The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force to improve." - "The doctor treats but nature heals."
We are responsible for our body, having a healthy body should be part of our upbringing and throughout our lives. We cannot see food only as pleasure, we must see food as the fuel that the body needs in order not to succumb. The food industry and the pharmaceutical industry work to support each other. We do not need desserts full of sugars, saturated fats, flours, to be healthy, but the sweet is present and is tempting to the eye and this makes us sin in eating them. Sausages full of preservatives and saturated fats, frozen meals that only make our time last for us more on a day-to-day basis but in the long run shortens our life span.
When we are young we believe that nothing will happen to us and we can eat what we want, what we do not have in mind is that the body takes its toll over the years and suddenly conditions begin to appear and we blame age. So no more, assume responsibility for what you eat, and think that only you can avoid those chronic degenerative conditions, avoid overweight, manage existing conditions, that is, if you already suffer from a condition, changing your diet with awareness will make you feel Better, possibly you can even reverse it, but if you do not achieve a 100% reversal, you can have a better quality of life.
I know it is very easy and it is the defense mechanism of every human being, assign responsibilities to others, to past situations, to genetics, but just take control of your life, and assume that food should be your medicine. Follow these tips and you will gain health, quality of life: - Eat vegetables and fruits. - Look for foods that have fiber. - No to sugar. - Not dairy. - No to meats full of saturated fat. - Not to white and refined flours. - Select the largest amount of food that comes from nature. - Consume nutritional supplements, such as vitamins, minerals, plants that help the immune system.
