Food as Medicine

Welcome to Nutrition 4 Health

Your diet is your body’s only source of raw materials which is needed to perform its day-to-day functions. Cellular workings are complicated and continual. Fortunately, your cells perform their jobs automatically, without any forethought on your part.

Your only responsibility to this intricate and dynamic system is to provide high-quality nutrients to your system, which your body needs to perform.

Eating smart will not only make you smart, it’s the smart thing to do. You will be at a much lower risk of needing to rely on doctors and medicines to maintain your health.

Eating well by itself is no guarantee of good nutrition.

Food must pass through six stages: diet (eating healthy foods), digestion (mechanically breaking down foods through mouth chewing and stomach churning), absorption (passage of nutrients from the intestines into the bloodstream), circulation (distribution of nutrients carried in blood to cells), assimilation (incorporation of nutrients into cells), and elimination (removal of metabolic waste products from cells). Only when all of these challenges are successfully met do our foods provide our bodies with the nutrition they need.  We can see that eating well by itself is no guarantee of good nutrition. Nonetheless, a good diet is the foundation upon which our health and vitality are built.

Regardless of age, a balance of good nutrition, exercise, and rest goes a long way toward achieving health, vitality, and longevity. But good nutrition is more than eating healthy foods which supply necessary carbohydrates, lipids, sterols, protein, vitamins and related food factors (such as phytonutrients), minerals, and enzymes. It means giving our bodies substances it can use. Note that diet is what we eat, but nutrition is what our cells and tissues actually receive.

Cellular Nutrition is the Foundation of the Health

If you built your dream house, you’d first build a strong foundation and then assemble the finest materials available to complete your project. Constructing a foundation of health that will last a lifetime requires the same commitment to quality building materials. Cells are the “building blocks” that make up a body, and each of the human body’s about 73 trillion highly specialized cells require clean air and water and essential nutrients — carbohydrates, lipids and sterols, proteins, vitamins and related food factors (such as phytonutrients), minerals, and enzymes. Good whole foods and good wholefood supplements provide the nutritional diversity and density that lay the foundation for good health.

Every 35 days, your skin replaces itself, your liver about a month. Your body makes these new cells from the food you eat. What you eat literally becomes you. You have a choice in what you are made of. You are what you eat.
