Proper nutrition is the basis for optimum health and well-being. Holistic Nutrition comes from an approach to treating a person’s well being by taking into consideration all aspects of life. A long-term course of action includes emotional and spiritual health along with the physical body. Modern medicine focuses on treating a symptom rather than the root cause. If a person is experiencing a symptom or chronic condition, the problem has most likely been developing for some time. The goal of holistic nutrition is to facilitate a health recovery plan as well as build a strong foundation for long-term optimum health.
Inflammation And Nutrition
Inflammation is a protective process you are probably more familiar with than you think. It’s the body’s method of healing itself in response to an injury or exposure to a harmful substance. This is useful when, for example, skin is healing from a cut; however, inflammation is not always beneficial.
Chronic (or ongoing) inflammation occurs when the immune system attacks the body’s healthy cells leading to autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, states of immune deficiency including Crohn’s disease or skin conditions including psoriasis. Underlying chronic inflammation also may play a role in heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
We know that some foods have the capacity to suppress inflammation. Healing cells from the inside out is the path to getting better.
