An Ounce of Prevention
A well-nourished body and mind continues to stand true to prevention and recovery
- even in the flux of viruses-
Many of us have heard “you are what you eat.” (Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, in 1826)
Yes that statement holds a lot of truth, but in a time society is bombarded with digestive imbalances, there is a deeper level to considered ...
“you are what you eat and assimilate” – Tony Robbins
(had no idea this was an actual quote ) (read slowly)
“This phenomenon highlights the importance of nutritional status and the relevance of nutritional therapy that should be regarded as first-line treatment and implemented into standard of practice. Good nutrition not only provides the body with immunity to diseases, including COVID-19, but is also the primary guarantee for promoting disease recovery.” European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences 2020
So much so, some admission treatments for COVID-19 patients exemplifying inflammation and malnourishment are now working with (high calorie absorbablefoods and IV infusion of multi vitamin nutrients).
Here’s a TIP: you don’t have to wait until your in a hospital/drs. office to work on nutrition and digestion.
As we keep seeing, those that have been unfortunately significantly affected with SARS-COV2 (elderly and comorbidities such as: diabetes, cardiovascular risks, higher blood sugar levels,* obesity), all have 1 main thing in common (poorly functioning digestive systems – hence IV infusion treatment due to lack of digestive processes).
Even with diet improvement, a healthy diet is only as good as it can be used. If the body cannot properly digest (breakdown, assimilate, absorb and eliminate) then you are not getting the full benefit of a “healthy”diet (this does not indicate a starving rabbit bad tasting diet but nourishing balanced satisfying).
In addition, with inadequate digestion you are very likely building up internal toxicity >> cardiovascular risk, diabetes, high blood sugar*, and many other ill-health disorders (such as click here).
Nutrient dense eating and an optimally functioning digestive system continues to be a major key to true health..
So What do you do?
Take a Step in the right direction.... get informed get inspired to…
- get on
- get back and/or
- optimize your health journey
To Great Health & Fitness!
