The Journey of a Lifetime: How Eating Healthy Affects Your Life
Posted on 19 July 2017
“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison.” – Ann Wigmore.
Think about what the quote means for a second. Most of us don’t think twice about what we put into our body. The moment somethingwe eat enters our mouth, it can be life changing. That change can either be one of the best things to happen to us, or it could be our downfall. The thing is, the choice is ours.
According to a study published by the U.S. National library of Medicine, the food we eat has an effect on our mental health.Those who struggle with depression and anxiety also use food for therapeutic purposes.
Unfortunately,our food choices can either lead to a healthy, happier life, or a depressed, unhealthy one. Our body depends on the food we eat as a source of ‘information’. This ‘information’ tells the body how to function. Without the right ‘data’, our body becomes weak, leading to various ailments and diseases.
Eating Healthy: What’s Your Choice?
Consuming processed foods on a daily basis can lead to the development of diseases such as arthritis, hepatitis, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.
Foods that are rich in unhealthy fats and carbs lead to weight gain. Once an individual gains weight, their BMI increases, and so does their blood pressure levels, blood sugar, and low-density lipoprotein (A.K.A. ‘bad cholesterol’).
By cutting back on, or eliminating, processed foods from our diet, we can start on the path to a healthy life. Study shows that those who eat more vegetables and fruits, are less likely to develop cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s.
Getting on the Right Track
It can be difficult to make the changes you need to make but it’s not impossible. With a few simple steps, it’s possible:
Drink Organic Juices:Avoid processed juices that come in bottle. Organic vegetables and fruits are not only wholesome; they’re packed with antioxidants and vitamins. Remember that your digestive system has cells and neurons that connect to your brain. Drinking juices packed in nutrients will help lighten your mood and boost immunity.
Invest in a Good Food Dehydrator:Say goodbye to plastic and invest in a good food dehydrator. With a dehydrator, making your favorite snacks and foods is not only easier; it’s good for your stomach as well. Plastic pans and woks are harmful and contain toxic metals that are damaging to your health. Invest in a stainless-steel dehydrator.
Detox your Home: Detox your home using an air purifier and steam cleaner. An air purifier will help absorb toxins in the air, clearing and cleaning it. It will remove foul odor as well. This way, you don’t have to worry about breathing in air pollutants. With a steam cleaner, you don’t have to worry about cleaning with harsh chemicals.
Steam cleaners are a great way of eliminating bacteria with heat. The heat is enough to kill germs but not damage surfaces.At Zyna’s Store,we offer reliable and affordable detox products to help individuals live a healthy, happy life.
