“Let food be thy medicine,” Said Hippocrates of Kos around 2500 years ago. His ancient wisdom feels so accurate right now. The western world is suffering from an epidemic of obesity and so many diseases. What has changed over the years of his wisdom? Perhaps we have become victims of our own greed. Greed for food, money, sex and so much more. A simple yet unknown cure can be the food that you put in your mouth.
Not only food can change your body’s microbiome but also mess your hormones and that can lead to a lot of issues. Your emotional well-being is connected to the food that you eat. We now know that our brain is connected to our gut through many nerves and it is in constant communication 24/7, we now call it the second brain.
Anxiety, depression, ADHD, hyperactivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, and brain fog are only a few of the many mental conditions that people complain and the food that we eat plays a big role in that.
For thousands of years, we knew that we have to respect the earth and its living beings, the greed of big corporations and the TV commercials have let us believe that meat, fish, and dairy its a big part of the human’s diet and should be consumed daily. Fast forward not more than 100 years we see the results of this.
I am not a doctor and this only my personal opinion that we should consume more plant-based whole foods in our daily life. Real foods that we can recognize with our eyes and taste always with respect to the environment.
Through my life coaching technique, a diet is one of the first things we address, and always try to make changes to fit individuals’ needs and improve their energy, mood, and overall wellbeing. Once you start eating the foods that you were supposed to eat, your life will change drastically and effortlessly for the better. To be a better human being it is not only enough to change some bad habits but it is important to understand and educate ourselves first and see the bigger picture. Everything has to be balanced in order for you to be balanced.
With love and gratitude,
