wise man should consider that health is the greatest
human blessings.” says Hippocrates, the man
known as the “Father of Medicine”.
Socrates, the Greek Philosopher said, “There is only
one good – Knowledge, and one evil – Ignorance.
two statements above should be used to guide all mankind
of all their actions where health is particularly
concerned. A great majority of us do not have the
slightest idea how to maintain good health. We always
rely on doctors to cure us when we get sick because
we fail to realize “the cure” comes from within the
human body. A wondrous Immune System has been provided
to us by nature and all we have to do is take proper
care of this inner healing force by eating the proper
kind of food every single day.
the modern lifestyles has gotten us off the right
tract – the fast foods, drug dependencies, alcohol
and nicotine abuse, a polluted environment and high-tech
stress. To enable the body to function up to its highest
potential, nature intended to fuel our inner healing
forces with the right natural substances like whole
foods, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, phytochemicals,
and other natural bounties – all these are designed
for use in our immune systems. But because most of
us lack the profound knowledge as to what our bodies
need to properly function, we often find ourselves
out of balance and susceptible to all kinds of illnesses.
should have taken active part in the maintenance of
their health and in the immediate treatment of their
disorders through the guidance of a health care professional.
Once we learn about proper nutrition, we will then
all be better prepared to take the active role of
caring for ourselves. People should have good attitude
in the processes of health maintenance and healing.
Keeping a positive state of mind brings harmony to
the body. The realization of the body (lifestyle),
spirit (desire), and mind (belief) must come together
as the first step to better health.
man named Moses Marmonides, a 12 th century philosopher
said, “The physician should not treat the
ailment, but the patient who is suffering from it.”
This means that all individuals should know how meet
their differing needs and to help them create their
own nutritional program.
foundation to good health is good nutrition. Every
human body needs four (4) basic nutrients such as
Water, Carbohydrates, proteins, and fats – the four
elements being the basic building blocks of a good
diet. Our bodies also need vitamins, minerals, and
other micronutrients. Choosing the proper foods and
better understanding why foods should be supported
with supplements, we all need to have a clear idea
of what are the components to a healthy diet to enable
one to achieve physical wellness.
Like the four basic nutrients,
our bodies also need vitamins and minerals that are
essential to life. They are considered nutrients and
are referred to as micronutrients simply because only
a relatively small amount is needed by the body compared
to the four basic nutrients.
levels of the micronutrients are usually determined
according to need in terms of prevention of diseases
or whether the person is on the borderline health. Therefore,
when the average adult is not suffering from any specific
disorder they should obtain more than the Recommended
Daily Allowance (RDA’s) doses of vitamins and minerals
from food sources and from supplements. Doses should
be based on specific guideline because although the
amounts recommended in the formula might be safe (they
will not cause toxicity), they should be varied according
to size and weight and also based on daily activity
and exercise. People who are active and do exercise,
those who are under stress, on restricted diets, or
mentally and physically ill; women taking oral contraceptives;
those on medication; those recovering from surgery;
and smokers and alcoholics who consume beverages all
need higher than normal amounts of nutrients.
2 important elements needed to prevent sickness and
disease in addition to a proper diet, exercise and a
positive attitude – the micronutrients – vitamins and
that includes the micronutrients will feel good and
have more energy – something that all of us deserve
It is of
prime importance that when you take vitamins and minerals
to correct deficiency, you must recognize that nutrients
work synergistically which means that there has to be
a cooperative action between vitamins and minerals,
which works as catalysts, promoting the absorption and
assimilation of the other vitamins and minerals. Correcting
a deficiency in one vitamin or mineral requires the
addition of others, not simply replacement of the one
in which you are deficient. That is why taking a single
vitamin or mineral maybe ineffective or even dangerous,
and why a balanced vitamin and mineral preparation should
always be taken in addition to any single supplement.
Phytochemicals is another
group of health-promoting nutrients. This substance
is considered to be powerful ammunition in the fight
against cancer and other disorders. Phytochemicals
seem to fight cancer. This substance is biologically
active in plants that are responsible for giving them
color, flavor, and natural diseases resistance. Diets
high in fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes appear
to reduce the risk of a number of diseases, including
cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure
when compared with diets high in meat. Recently it
was discovered that the disease-preventing effects
of these foods are partly due to antioxidants – specific
vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that help prevent
cancer and other disorders by protecting cells against
damage from oxidation – the phytochemicals. There
is no supplement that can possibly contain all the
cancer-fighters found in a shopping basket full of
vegetables and fruits.
It is very fortunate
that it is easy to get a healthy dose of phytochemicals
at every meal, as tested, this substance is found
in almost every grain, legume, fruit, and vegetable.
Another important thing to note is that phytochemicals
unlike many other vitamins does not destroy the substance
by cooking or other processing. Eating much of the
produce raw or lightly cooked, we will be able to
enjoy the benefits not just the phytochemicals, but
of all the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients
that fresh whole foods have to offer.
In summary, it is therefore
necessary to know what food to select, buy, and prepare
for foods. That will clearly provide a healthy diet
that will contain a proper balance of the four essential
nutrients, as well as a rich supply of vitamins, mineral,
and other micronutrients. Also, it is not enough to
simply purchase foods that are high in complex carbohydrates,
fiber, and complimentary proteins, and low in saturated
fats. All the foods that we buy must also be free
of harmful additives (msg) and artificial ingredients
and it must be prepared in a way that preserves its
nutrients and avoid the production of harmful substances.
Further, it is therefore
recommended that we increase our consumption of raw
produce that are organically grown without the use
of insecticides, herbicides, artificial fertilizers,
or growth stimulating chemicals. Organic produce stimulating
chemicals. Organic produce can be found in select
health food stores, as well as in some supermarkets
and greenmarkets and through food coops.
Choose produce (fruits
and vegetables) that are at the peak of ripeness as
it contains more vitamins and enzymes than the underripe
or overripe or that has been stored for any length
of time. Bear in mind that food kept in storage loses
more nutrients. Do not overcook food nor cook it in
burning flames like barbecues. Barbecue meats seem
to pause the worst health threat in this regard because
when a burning fat drips onto an open flame, polycyclic
aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) – dangerous carcinogens
are formed. When amino acids and other chemicals found
in the muscle are exposed to high temperatures, other
carcinogens, called heterocyclic aromatic amines (HAAs),
are created. As a matter of fact, many of the chemicals
used to produce cancer in laboratory animals have
been isolated from cooked proteins. Also take note
that even browned or burned bread crusts contain a
variety of carcinogenic substances. Therefore, by
eating produce raw or only lightly cooked, and by
greatly limiting your consumption of meat, you will
be doing much to decrease your risk of cancer and
avoid other disorders.
using the proper cooking utensils in preparing your
food. Use only glass, stainless steel, or iron pots
and pans. Do not use aluminum produce cookware or utensils.
Foods cooked or stored in aluminum produce a substance
that neutralizes the digestive juices, leading to acidosis
and ulcers. Aluminum use is worse since the aluminum
in the cookware can lead from the pot into the food.
When food is consumed, the aluminum is absorbed by the
body, where it accumulates in the brain and nervous
systems tissues. Excessive amounts of these aluminum
deposits have been implicated in Alzheimer’s disease.
Other cookwase to be
avoided includes all pots and pans with nonstick coatings.
Metals and other substances in the pots finish flakes
or leaches into the food and these chemicals end up
in your body.
Last to consider in maintaining
body wellness is to use minimal salt on your food.
We need 500 milligrams of sodium a day to stay healthy
– maintain normal fluid levels, healthy muscle function,
and proper acidity (pH) of the blood. Excessive sodium
intake can cause fluid to be retained in the tissues,
which can lead to hypertension (high blood pressure)
and can aggravate many medical disorders to include
congestive heart failure, certain forms of kidney
disease, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS),
The best way to limit
the sodium in your diet is to limit use of salt when
cooking and dining. Stay away from processed foods
that often contain excessively high amounts of sodium.
Through proper nutrition we can all
hope to live to be 100 years old.
By our own readings on diet we can find
out which foods are in the supermarket that can keep
us happy and healthy for all the years in our lives;
as well as, add many years in our lives along the way?
American markets sell thousands of foods and most of
them are original sources of the medicine that he medical
companies sell us. All that we need is some Knowledge
and we can go to the right source.
Paying attention to all the nutritional
information in the newspapers we already hear that whole
grains are good for us, fish is good for you, red meat
can be bad for the health, that we need to limit our
fat intake, and a lot of other things that may be true,
but which are so disorganized that we really don’t know
which food to pick to keep up healthy or heal an illness,
and what to stay away from.
It is impossible to cover all areas
about good diet or nutrition, but I have made an effort
to give you some information about all of the problems
that has recently caused major health concerns and how
to possibly remedy them.
All I want to impart to all of our readers
here is how to get you started on the right road to
good health through proper nutrition and how to gain
the knowledge of knowing what nutritional supplements
to purchase that might work effectively for you considering
the kind of lifestyle you keep on a day-to-day basis.
