If you don’t eat right and don’t know how to take care of your body, you’re not going to have the energy to do anything wonderful.
Louise L. Hay
We live in a world of increasingly vast choices. Choices of where, what, and when to eat are more prevalent than ever. Many companies are releasing increasingly large numbers of “health” food products that claim to be better for us. And yet, 50.1% of Halton Residents are overweight. Many of us, even at otherwise “normal” weights, still struggle with low energy levels and many other general discomforts.
Times have changed. Most people’s food now comes from factories not farms, and contains many ingredients that we can’t even pronounce. We are dieting more yet gaining more weight than ever. We are bombarded with persuasive food industry marketing messages. We are eating more yet feeling less satisfied. Our lives have become so busy. Food and health have become too complicated for most people.
We need to go back to a time when wholesome, natural “real” food was the norm. Today’s foods are heavily refined and processed, and contain many artificial ingredients. With proper nutrition, we can help prevent many diseases and health problems before they even begin.
Mainstream medicine has failed to emphasize the importance of proper nutrition and lifestyle factors in the prevention and management of many common health conditions and diseases. The OHIP system is not set up to enable doctors to provide in-depth education regarding nutrition, sustainable weight loss, or nutritional supplements relating to the health conditions their patients are facing.
Symptoms are our body’s way of telling us that we are out of balance. Despite the ability of drugs and over-the-counter medications to suppress symptoms, the root cause remains. When you put up with recurring symptoms like insomnia, fatigue, stomach troubles, mood swings, etc., the imbalance will only get worse and often opens the door for more extreme health issues in the future.
Holistic nutrition takes a different approach; identifying and balancing the underlying cause of your symptoms, instead of merely masking them. Imbalances and nutritional deficiencies may be addressed through consumption of fresh natural foods, supplementation, and other positive lifestyle changes. The goal is to bring balance back to the body to prevent illness and to live the best life possible! Making wiser choices that will have you feeling more in control of your own health, energetic, and better able to deal with life’s stresses.
While food intake plays the biggest role in health, the holistic health approach looks at the body as a whole. It is believed that health problems can caused at any of three levels; body, mind and spirit.
