Humans spend just over an hour each day consuming food and beverages. During this little bit of time, you can make a massive difference for your entire wellbeing.
People post cookie-cutter diets all over the web, claiming to know the secret. But, how can one plan cater to every unique body?
Holistic nutrition focuses on each individual’s nuances, with the understanding that everybody needs something a little different.
Read on to learn why the holistic approach to nutrition works.
Food Does More Than Curb Hunger
Your body tells you when to eat. Through cravings, it may even tell you what to eat in a roundabout way. But, food does much more than curb the sensation of hunger.
Food consists of the macronutrients protein, carbohydrates, and fat and micronutrients, like sodium, magnesium, potassium, etc. Your body breaks it down and sends crucial elements to fuel energy, create structures, and carry out chemical processes.
What you eat impacts how you function physically, but it also affects your thoughts and feelings.
Many people suffer from skin rashes, inflammation, exhaustion, sleep disorders, and mood swings, all from eating foods that do not agree with their body. On the other hand, you can use specific foods to eliminate all of these symptoms.
Eating “good foods” may help you stay fit. But, eating the foods that fit your needs through a functional nutrition plan maximizes your physical, mental, and spiritual health.
Personalized nutrition takes a full look at the individual, rather than assuming that everybody needs the same thing. Setting aside size and weight, which significantly differs among individuals, people also possess different bone structures, fat compositions, hormone levels, and the mind’s intricacies.
This approach assesses the health of a person’s mind, body, and spirit to feed each personal aspect properly. It looks at what you need first and then translates that into a plan. Taking in precisely what your unique body needs means maintaining wellness.
Western approaches to anything health relates typically look at symptoms. But, when you only look for signs and symptoms, you wait for something to go wrong before stepping in.
Functional alternative nutrition takes a proactive approach to wellness. We look at the whole person and the entire body. You can use food to fix ailments that arise. The focus is on preventing illness in the first place, instead of dealing with issues as they arrive, by catering to the needs of the individual.
Medicines often help you feel better for the moment. However, all medications have side effects or unintended effects that can cause adverse outcomes. Personalized nutrition looks specifically at you as an individual and works to keep you feeling your best.
You do not only use it when you feel sick. Every meal becomes a conscious decision towards living a healthy life; this leaves you with a long-term solution rather than a bandaid fix. We want to use nutrition not only to get you healthy but keep you healthy for a lifetime.
