Understanding Your Body

Unfortunately we live in a time where most people seem to be suffering ailments of some sort. Perhaps it has been this way for many years, but without medicine and science being what it is today, no one would have know.

Cancer is on the rise, as is diabetes, arthritis, autoimmune problems, digestive ailments, asthma and skin problems. But we are all given sworn diets that will work for everyone. To the most part, perhaps. But I would prefer to acknowledge that we are all individuals, firstly. Secondly, due to our day to day lives our needs vary greatly. Thirdly, we all suffer from different ailments. Someone with low blood sugar can have chocolate, someone suffering from hyperglycemia, normal white bread will have too much sugar.

So, at the end of the day, what diets are we all supposed to follow? There are so many conflicting articles on different fruits and veg. How are we supposed to know what is good for us what is not.

For example, the goji. Supper food! But there are many articles out there they say how bad the berries are for you. Sigh and eye roll.

The goji is a brilliant supper food, but should never be taken by diabetics or anyone in danger of tipping the scale in that direction. The sugar content is too high and all the sugar is easily absorbed.

I would caution with the goji that only active people should be eating it. I love the berries, hence why I am growing my own. In a few months or more, I will be able to eat fresh, organic, berries. They give you a fantastic boost! But I never eat them after lunch or I am still bouncing off walls when I want to go to bed. Not everyone has the same intense energy boost as I get from them, a friend of mine happily eats them before going to bed.

I will be writing many articles on different fruit and veg, but I want to encourage you to know your body and what it needs. Don’t follow something because it is a trend. You need to know yourself first and then discover what foods work for you. An example, sauerkraut is very good for the gut and has many helpful micro organisms that aid in digestion, but if you suffer from high blood pressure or diverticulitis this is something you should avoid.

So as we go on this journey of discover together, get to know what you need to feed your body for healthy living. There will be diet plans, recipes and loads more coming, but each of those are suggestions that need to be adapted for you as an individual.

If you have questions and want suggestions, please don’t hesitate to email and I will get back to you.
