In this blog series, we’re going to talk about how Healthy Food Means a Healthy You. Today we want to talk about how the foods you eat can specifically impact diseases. Please have an open mind and read this series in its entirety. Many things can cause an unhealthy state in our body, but the combinations of certain foods can create the perfect storm to accelerate the disease process.


You Can Reduce Your Chances of Disease


Science has provided us with numerous studies that demonstrate the potential for a significant reduction in the prevalence of diseases such as Alzheimer’s, IBS, heart disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancers. The key lies in understanding how certain combinations of foods can either promote or inhibit the disease process.


For example, a 2016 study from the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry found that diet and exercise were linked to lower levels of plaque and “brain tangles” that contribute to Alzheimer’s.


“Let Food Be Thy Medicine”


The famous physician Hippocrates emphasized the power of food as medicine, but he could not have foreseen how we would compromise its healing properties through the addition of chemicals and excessive processing. Unfortunately, many people remain unaware of the dangers lurking in the foods they consume, including our family and close friends. However, we all have choices that can decrease our risk of major illnesses and diseases.


I don’t mean to alarm anyone, but the facts surrounding this issue are compelling, and you have the right to know what you are putting into your body. What you choose to do after gaining this knowledge is entirely up to you.


My hope is that it will resonate with you enough to inspire healthy changes in your diet and lifestyle.
