The Importance Of Nutrition By Nancy Zivkovic, CNP, RNCP
Most of us think we have a "healthy" diet. However, nowadays the quality of our food is not what it once was. Did you know that premature harvesting accounts for food value losses of up to 25%, transporting another 25% and storage can account for losses up to 50%. So just how "healthy" is our diet?
Today more than ever balancing lifestyle and diet are extremely important. Each day we are exposed to harmful chemicals in our daily lives from the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. From the moment we awaken until the time we go to sleep, we are inundating our bodies with environmental toxins.
The good news is our bodies have seven organs of detoxification that help to manage this toxic load. The bad news is overexposure to harmful chemicals can compromise our ability to detoxify. As a result, we may begin to manifest symptoms such as fatigue, migraines, allergies, skin conditions, aches and pains, constipation, bloating and obesity.
A holistic nutritionist can help by identifying and addressing the root cause of the problem. Benefits include increased energy, boosting immunity and slowing down the time bomb of aging! Dietary programs are customized to suit your individual needs helping you to achieve optimal health and wellness. Holistic nutrition gets to the root of the problem!
