Food has power
Regardless of who was the father of disease, the bad diet was certainly its mother.
How it all began
I love changing life of other people for better, especially in the field of nutrition, eating habits and lifestyle so that the body, by strengthening its natural defence forces and launching self-healing mechanisms, can cope with all the ailments. In fact, our body with relatively little help from us, can do amazing things. I’ve experienced it myself when I heard from the doctors diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE, autoimmune disease). I also heard that it is an incurable disease, destroying in a very aggressive way the body and if I did not take drugs, then after two years I would end up on a wheelchair. I started from nothing, I did not know anything, I did not know anyone who would be able to help me to cure myself in the natural way. Nutrition and functioning of a human organism, however, have become my passion very quickly.
You are what you eat, how you eat and when you eat
I realized very quickly how authentic is a slogan “you are what you eat”, how real are the famous words of Hippocrates “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. It is good to remember, that every minute in our body die, and in their place are born about 2 million cells (!) Depending on what we eat each day, these cells are either healthy and strong or weak and sick – our health or illness begins at the cellular level. The truth is that every day we choose between health and illness, every day we work on how we feel now and in our future.
Nutrigenomics – gene expression
Relatively new concepts in the field of nutrition are functional foods and nutrigenomics. Nutrigenomics analyzes the effect of bioactive nutrients on gene expression; this in turn affects the functioning of cells, health or disease. Although it is a quite controversial topic, interesting seem to be sirtuins, responsible for longevity. Sirtuins (survival genes) are produced, for example, during a properly performed fasting. Consuming the right dose of resveratrol (an antioxidant belonging to the polyphenols) gives a similar effect to the properly performed fasting. Polyphenols also participate in the process of apoptosis – programmed death of cancer cells. In addition to nutrition, our lifestyles, stimulants and stress are important factors that can mute or amplify activity of certain genes. Today’s results of European scientific and clinical research increasingly reflect the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine – perceive human being as a whole, inseparable from surroundings.
What is proper nutrition?
We are over-eaten, but at the same time malnourished
Today, our bodies are overloaded – on the one hand there are excessive stress, bad sleep, lack of balance between work and rest, lack of proper physical activity, more and more drugs and stimulants, more polluted environment, often even toxic food, on the other hand: lack of restraint – we eat too much food, almost every day doing ourselves Christmas. Often we are over-eaten, but at the same time malnourished, either by very impoverished food ingredients or by disturbances in the absorption of nutrients, which in turn is most often due to overloading of the digestive system with too much food intake.
Why is it worth to take care about filters?
Not every healthy food is good for everyone
First symptoms - so important, but still overlooked...
Chronic diseases do not give any symptoms for a long time. We used to trivialize the warning signals that our body sends to us (for example, headaches, joints aches, tiredness, daytime sleepiness, insomnia at night, flatulence, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea, chronic rhinitis or cough, lack of fever during an infection, dermatitis, lymphomas, fibrosis, polyps and haemorrhoids). Let’s stop complaining about these ailments, and let’s be grateful that they are such a valuable source of information about us. If we remedy in time to these types of symptoms, we will protect ourselves from serious chronic diseases, including cancer. Of course, the sooner we remedy the better for us. According to a six-level scale of pollution of the body, where sixth level means malignant cancer, visible abnormalities in laboratory tests are present only on the fifth level (!) Taking into account this fact, it is true to say that “even one gram of prophylaxis is worth more than a ton of treatment.” I would really give a lot to have this knowledge and experience to be able to effectively remedy the first symptoms of connective tissue disease (systemic lupus) appearing many years before diagnosis. Similarly to my mother, who has experienced two myocardial infarctions, vein transplant surgery (bypass) and ischemic stroke. If I have known before … she could have avoided it. Today, however, my mother is in very good health condition and a vein patency study showed that all the veins, even those transplanted 11 years ago, are patent (!) The doctors are very surprised because they claim that it’s impossible from the point of view of classical medicine : )
