On Good Nutrition

On Good Nutrition

The power of nutrition to build and regenerate body organs and systems is unfathomable and the degree of non-toxicity and gentleness is astounding as opposed to inelegant and grossly toxic medical technology of drugs.

The human body is made up of a hundred trillion cells. Your body makes cells like we bake cake. It requires a recipe. But instead of, eggs and butter and whole grain flour it needs vitamins and minerals and essential fatty acids. Now, if you used elmer’s glue instead of flour and battery acid instead of eggs you wouldn’t have much of a cake and if your body has to use fried fats and refined sugar to make cells it’s not gonna have much of a body and eventually it’s gonna begin to decay and degenerate. one needs to look no further than your average public gathering place (try an all-u-can-eat buffet)to witness these effects.

On Good NutritionCells are perfectly capable of living and thriving and reproducing regenerating and healing and doing they’re specialized functions as long as they receive the appropriate vitamins, minerals, fats, proteins, accessory nutrients and generous quantities of good clean water. That means from a physical perspective, no one needs to be “sick” now, the topic of good nutrition can be divided into two categories: diet and supplements. “Diet” referring to foodstuffs and “supplementation” referring to nutrients that add to (supplement) the diet. both subjects are important to understand for maximum health benefits.

The foods we eat have a tremendous impact on our physical health and well being. To put it simply, the less calories we ingest, the better off we will be. We should attempt to ingest the most nutrient dense foods. that is foods with a high nutrient to calorie ratio (lots of nutrition, not so many calories). The bulk of food calories should come from vegetables of all kinds (especially green leafies, grasses and avocados which are good sources of fats), quality protein, such as eggs, some fish and nuts and (ideally, sprouted) seeds. Water should be distilled or reverse osmosis and should be ingested copiously (1/2 to 1 gallon a day, under ideal conditions).

Then, there is nutritional supplementation. While herbs like saw palmetto and st. john’s wort may have their place in a health care regimen, they should not be considered nutritional supplements. herbs are medicines and not nutrition. nutritional supplementation is a vast subject and thus the importance of the “eight chapters of good nutrition’ which can be thought of as a simplified version of the this encyclopedic and potentially overwhelming subject.
