“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
Around the year 400 B.C., Hippocrates was ahead of his time when he advised humans to prevent and treat disease first and foremost by eating a nutrient-dense diet. The foods we eat every day play a critical role in supporting our health or our demise.
Food is extremely personal.
What is one person’s power is another person’s poison. Coined by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition®, bio-individuality™ is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. There is no one-size fits all diet and different food philosophies or ways of eating can have profoundly different results and impacts from one individual to the next. Nutrition is the only science that has opposing, yet accurate and verified outcomes.
With society’s increased focus on trend diets and ways of eating, it’s important to spend your time cultivating your own intuition, learning how to listen and trust your own body and using that as a guide to making food choices.
It’s about adopting a flexible, integrative approach to nutrition.
The foods you choose to eat not only impact your physical body, but your mental and emotional body as well.
Your gut, or microbiome, operates as your second brain, playing a very real and significant role in not only your cognitive functioning, but also your mood and emotional state. Recent studies also show the strength of the gut-brain connection and how the gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to emotions such as anger, anxiety, sadness and elation and vice versa.
Different ways that your food choices can affect your mood include:
- Eating at irregular intervals
- Cutting or skimping essential food groups
- Forgetting essential vitamins and minerals
- Not getting enough omega-3 fatty acids
- Eating too many processed foods
While diet is specific and individual to each person, we think it’s important to eat a diet filled with fresh, whole foods that are full of life and nourishment while eliminating or reducing processed, fake foods that are lacking in life force energy.
Actuate, stimulate, and empower.
