Although you might think that there is enough written about health, in fact, because there are increasingly more sick people, the attention is focused more on diseases and less on health.
There are also several causes of disease: genetic, psycho-emotional, chemical, etc. But there are ways to be healthy: psychic balance, personalized diet therapy (and I do not mean ordinary diets), etc.
Food recommendations for being healthy
Health can be maintained or regained food using only natural products in your diet – seeds, grains, vegetables, fruits, spices. Chosen and combined properly, these foods can provide your body the vitamins and minerals so necessary for developing optimal biochemical processes at the cellular level, but also a beneficial energy intake.
Moreover, if we focus on the act of eating, if you send your body the message that we care about it and what we offer as food, the benefits will be even greater.
As a recommendation, experts suggests that there may be days when you eat only vegetables, days in which to use only cereals, etc. Ideally, you should learn to combine colors, tastes, aromas, etc. to avoid any “side effects” such as: abdominal distension (bloating), heartburn, upset transit, etc.
In order to have a health made of steel we should consume:
• seeds – pumpkin, sunflower, flax, etc. NOT roasted;
• vegetables – carrots, onions, cauliflower, celery, broccoli, peas, zucchini, eggplant, peppers, cucumbers, cabbage, beetroot, apples, bananas, dried fruit (raisins, apricots, plums, etc..), citrus (occasionally), cherries , strawberries, peaches, pears, and so on;
• spices – basil, thyme, marjoram, ginger, horseradish, oregano, sage, mint, and so on;
• cereals – boiled corn, rice, and so on;
• other natural products – honey, pollen (in case of no allergy), hazelnuts, walnuts, etc..
Steps to take towards longevity
If we want to be healthy until an old age, we should respect the following steps:
• getting up in the morning when the sun rises;
• slow exercises;
• adequate hydration – fruit juices, soy milk, tea, etc.;
• working time – 8 hours;
• simple meals at fixed hours, consisting mostly of raw vegetables;
• intensive sport in the second half of the day;
• limiting time spent watching the television, on the computer, and so on;
• rest (sleep) – 6-8 hours.
Sure there are many more issues, most needing to be adapted to the individual’s particularities. As there is a “way” to disease, so can the way to recovery be found, the process being often reversible. It’s only up to us to change the direction we want.
Do we want instant gratification (overly processed foods, ultra-refined, and so on), paying the price for anxiety, pain and sorrow later? This is the question that everyone should answer for themselves every time.
